Best answer

Tirtouga's ability sturdy should be replaced with solid rock to lower super effective moves and waterfall should be replaced with hydro pump, even though it doesn't have as good special attack as it's attack, it would be a better choice in my opinion.

I have to say that your ponyta is fine.

Treeko is good, but should be replaced with Shroomish with the moves and other stuff.
Item-toxic orb
Ability-Poison Heal

Giga Drain- STAB, refils health
Drain Punch- Coverage, refils health
Spore- You'll be able to go all out when they are asleep
Leech Seed- even more healing

Shinx is okay, but you might want to change to another Electic type

Bronzong would be a good lead, since it has trick room and would help Shroomish's low speed with his Brave nature and since it has gyro ball, you should give Bronzong a brave nature, or if you want more of a wall, give it Relaxed or Sassy.

Munchlax is a great staller, but you need more of your team to have Status moves that lower health to make more use of Muchlax.

The Edge- I notice that your team has a lot of weaknesses to fighting and ground, but its your choice.

Tirtouga is a great Pokemon, but only if you are using a Shell Smash set.

Purotooga (M) @ Eviolite
Trait: Sturdy
EVs: 84 HP / 212 Atk / 12 Def / 180 Spd
Jolly Nature (+Spd, -SAtk)
- Aqua Jet
- Stone Edge
- Shell Smash
- Earthquake

Aqua Jet is better than Waterfall even with Shell Smash because sometimes you just need that priority. Whether it is when they send out a Mach Punch user to try and take it out or if even before Shell Smash is used you just cannot risk using Shell Smash for some odd reason then Aqua Jet will prove incredibly useful.

Houndour does much better than Ponyta at the job of Firettype with Flash Fire Special Sweeper.

Houndour (M) @ Life Orb
Trait: Flash Fire
EVs: 200 SAtk / 40 SDef / 240 Spd
Mild Nature (+SAtk, -Def)
- Fire Blast
- Nitro Charge
- Dark Pulse
- Hidden Power [Fighting]

You'll find Snivy to be a better Pokemon than Treecko.

Tsutaaja (M) @ Evolution Stone
Trait: Perversity
EVs: 240 SAtk / 252 Spd
Timid Nature (+Spd, -Atk)
- Leaf Storm
- Taunt
- Hidden Power [Ground]
- Giga Drain

Shinx is far too slow to get any damage in before being taken down. Elekid is a great sweeper, with plenty of type coverage, an ability that protects it from Spore and Hypnosis, and great Attack and Speed. It even has better defensive stats than Shinx.

Elekid (M) @ Choice Band
Trait: Vital Spirit
EVs: 252 Atk / 236 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Cross Chop
- Ice Punch
- Fire Punch
- ThunderPunch

I see you have a Bronzor. Well, with a better moveset than that you can easily make it into a lead like most people tend to do.

Bronzor @ Evolution Stone
Trait: Levitate
EVs: 220 HP / 4 Atk / 228 Def / 4 SAtk / 12 Spd
Sassy Nature (+SDef, -Spd)
- Hypnosis
- Stealth Rock
- Psychic
- Earthquake

Then we just need to improve that Munchlax moveset and we are good to go.

Munchlax (M) @ Evolution Stone
Trait: Thick Fat
EVs: 236 HP / 236 Atk / 36 Def
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
- Curse
- Frustration
- Fire Punch
- Earthquake / Pursuit

Thank you. I will listen to most of your suggestions. (I don´t have wi-fi so I can´t get me an Vital Spirit Elekid or an Contrary Snivy)
