I have a newly caught Shiny Gyarados from Lake of rage in lv 30, a slowpoke that I plan on train so it can evolve soon in lv 27 and a Mantine in lv 23 wich should I choose as my water type?

Red Gyrados. You need a Pokemon whith more power and a higher level.Slopoke I don't prefer due to it's psychic typing, I prefer flying due to it covering the grass weakness, and also killing fighting types like psychic does. Mantine just has bad stats and you definitly don't want to use him at this time in the game.

I guess Gyarados is better.
Yeah, he has stronger stats.
You also have to remeber that with Gyrados' typing you get added weaknesses that Slowbro wont have, That being Electric is 4x effective,Ice is normally effective instead of not very effective, and Rock is super-effective.

I agree with ultimate flygon.You need to have a strong Pokemon like GYARADOS that should finish things off in a second. seems good although it seems slow.So a trick room slowbro will be good. is rather okay other than its High SpDef stats.But off all the three I would go with gyarados beacuse of its high stats of 540.

A good moveset will be:
Gyarados (M) @ Lum Berry
Role: Physical Sweeper
Trait: Moxie
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

Dragon Dance
Stone Edge
Lum berry Prevents yourself being Confused and most importantly Burned ( I hate that )

And Moxie boosts are very helpfull, along with an Adamant nature for the hardest freaking hits you can give away.

Dragon Dance to set up with, and then Waterfall for STAB, Earthquake for Coverage, Stone Edge for Other Gyarados's and other coverage.
