Hitmonchan has more diverse move typing but I'm not sure which one I should add to my team

It really depends on the rest of your team.

It is true Hitmonchan has more diverse Moves in Gen 1, not including TMs at least. However, in Gen 1-3, before the Physical-Special Split, all moves of the same type were either all Special, or all Physical. Gen 1 Hitmonchan suffers from this, as while on the surface it has a diverse Movepool, all of the Elemental Punches in Gen 1-3 are Special- and Hitmonchan's Special stat in Gen 1 is terribly low, meaning the Moves will do virtually no damage.

So, you'll probably want to go with Marowak.
