Please read the following guidelines before posting an answer here:

  • Please include (at least) six Pokemon in your answer, each with a specified set of moves. Abilities, natures, items and especially EVs are helpful but not a necessity.

  • Be mindful that players may not be able to get certain Pokemon, such as those restricted by version exclusivity or a trade evolution. If you'd like to suggest one of these, be sure to mention alternative/s.

  • Please also be considerate that many players have particular rule-sets for teams, such as to disallow overpowered legendary Pokemon or keep the starter on the team. You're welcome to suggest otherwise, but again it is kind to mention other options.

  • Please provide ample explanation.

Why can't I vote here?
I would have a Goodra too, And level it all the way up in pokemon Amie because when I fought the champion it said goodra survived the moonblast and was at 1 hp and then came another moonblast it did its animation and it said it survived it again. I was like glitch! :)
i would put  xerneas in or if your looking for a Pokemon witch is not a legendary i would go for a thunderus or landourus
All Arceus

Why Gogoat a grass type pokemon holds a mystic water and not a meadow plate or miracle  seed?
Because he already gets stab for his Grass type moves. I'm trying to up the power of Surf.
What type Hidden Power does Florges have?

Alright, writing this up for Ninja Frog right here, bros!
enter image description here
Greninja (nicknamed ShadowFrog) Water/Dark Mystic Water
-Dark Pulse
-Waterfall
-Surf
-Water Shuriken

Awkward thing is that he has a tounge scarf. But whats good about him is the move Water Shuriken. Water Shuriken, like what fondanrt said, breaks through Sturdy. Its Dark Pulse is also good for pwning Ghost types. But he's probably not good on fighting Fairy types, or Fighting types.
Weakness: Grass, Electric, Fighting, Fairy, and Bug
Resistance: Fire, Water, Steel, Dark, Ice, and Ghost

enter image description here
Hawlucha (nicknamed Mysterio) Fighting/Flying Black Belt
-Fly
-Flying Press
-Strength
-Rock Smash

Hawlucha is a powerful Pokemon that would pwn Steel types, and probably Rock types. Usually, people would choose Hawlucha over Talonflame, except some would pick Talonflame. I chose Hawlucha 'cause I need a Fighting type for those strong Normal types, and Steel types too. But, is it me, or every time I see Hawlucha, it reminds me of Mucha Lucha?
Weakness: Flying, Fairy, Electric, Ice, and Psychic
Resistance: Fighting, Bug, Grass, and Dark

enter image description here
Venusaur (nicknamed Junglesaurus) Grass/Poison Venusaurite
-Cut
-Venoshock
-Petal Blizzard
-Grass Knot

Venusaur is probably a good choice for a Grass type. He can help defeat Water types and Rock types, but with Fairy types, yeah. He can use Venoshock on them if he's Mega Evolved. But Venusaur fighting Gardevoir, bad choice. She'll pwn him with Psychic, which is not good.
Weakness: Ice, Fire, Psychic, and Flying
Resistance: Grass, Electric, Fighting, Fairy, and Water

enter image description here
Gardevoir (nicknamed Beauty) Psychic/Fairy Gardevoirite
-Shadow Ball
-Dazzling Gleam
-Thunderbolt
-Psychic

Gardevoir is gonna be your best choice. She can pwn a Dragon type like a one-hit KO. She can be pretty handy for Ghost types, and Fighting types. She is not affected against Dragon, which is good. She can help you when you reach to the Pokemon League.
Weakness: Steel, Ghost, and Poison
Resistance: Psychic and Fighting

enter image description here
Heliolisk (nicknamed CapriSun) Electric/Normal Zap Plate
-Thunderbolt
-Parabolic Charge
-Flash
-Dragon Tail

Heliolisk is good for those pesky Flying types. And also for Dragon types, if he has Dragon Tail, like he had in the anime, but his Flash will be perfect for lighting up caves. Whats awkward about him is that he can learn Surf, which is awkward for me, that I used Surf on my Greninja. Whats kinda epic for Heliolisk is that he can learn Dark Pulse.
Weakness: Fighting and Ground
Resistance: Electric, Steel, and Flying

enter image description here
Tyrantrum (nicknamed Megatron) Rock/Dragon Rocky Helmet
-Earthquake
-Rock Slide
-Draco Meteor
-Crunch

It'll be epic if he learns Draco Meteor, if his happiness is high. This is Game Freak's first try to make a Tyrannosaurus Rex, but whats handy is that he has Strong Jaws. What Strong Jaws does, is that it raises the power of biting moves (Crunch, for example), to 50%. Earthquake will do good, or Bulldoze for Clemont's gym, so that you can pwn your way to Clemont. But just Tyrantrum is total BEAST.
Weakness: Dragon, Fairy, Steel, Fighting, Ice, and Ground
Resistance: Normal, Flying, Poison, Fire, and Electric

Well, though I kinda regret using two fire types, Plus the multitude of weaknesses, I think I really sweeper the elite four and champion with this team. It's not very good, but it's really easy to use. Also, I only used 5 Pokemon and filled the last slot with a slave. I'm not going to be specifying movesets but I will justify why I chose these Pokemon.

Delphox
Why: There are ten million GRENINJA users here on earth and I'm not about to be one of them. I wanted to try using a type combination that I never really tried before, and trust me, you are not going to regret it. Delphox is excellent specially and can both deal and tank damage nicely with mediocre speed. If you choose delphox, you won't regret it.
Blastoise
Why: Blastoise is an amazing tank that can also deal good damage. It is strong and buff but is quite slow. It is a great water type which is my one of my favorite gen 1 starters which you won't regret using due to its diverse and excellent moveset. It's mega is also awesome.
Lucario
Why: Luacrio is an excellent fighting type that overly excels in what it's doing. With close combat. Aura sphere, extreme speed and moves like that will help it out at its physical/special move sets. It's mega buffs it up in its attack and defence which really makes it a force to be reckoned with.
Gogoat
Why: Ok, one thing is that you can ride Skiddo but it is also an excellent attacker with lots of moves proving it to be a worthy grass type. It's physical sets are complimented with great speed and attack so you won't regret using it.
Chandelure
Why: It's an excellent special attacker and wall with good moved all around. It is extremely powerful and should be watched out because of its diverse move sets and excellent tanking ability.
Fletchling/Marill SLAVE
FOR FLY AND SURF/WATERFALL/DIVE

Here's a good team, given that you chose Froakie as your starter Pokemon.

Froakie chosen:
Greninja: Surf, Ice Beam, Dark Pulse, Extrasensory
Raichu or Light Ball Pikachu: Thunderbolt, Wild Charge, Brick Break (if Raichu)/Iron Tail (if Pikachu), Grass Knot
Krookodile: Crunch, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Outrage (and no I don't care about having multiple weaknesses to fighting and fairy)
-> Bulbasaur chosen:
Venusaur: Poisonpowder, Venoshock, Energy Ball, Growth
Salamence: Fly, Dragon Claw, Zen Headbutt, Fire Fang (it may have only 65 power but it'll do more damage than Flamethrower due to his ridiculous attack)
Lucario: Psychic, Aura Sphere, Flash Cannon, Dragon Pulse

-> Charmander chosen:
Charizard (X): Flamethrower, Dragon Claw, Shadow Claw, Fly; Charizard (Y): Flamethrower, Dragon Pulse, Fly, Solarbeam
Roserade: Energy Ball, Sludge Bomb, Toxic, Shadow Ball
For X - Garchomp: Earthquake, Rock Slide, Dragon Rush, Crunch; For Y - Gengar: Dark Pulse, Psychic, Shadow Ball, Dazzling Gleam

This team is based around the fire type starter Fennekin.
5 Pokemon are given to you as gifts making this a perfect team for beginners!
I have added the item and tm locations for all 6 Pokemon!
This team has 3 physical and 3 special attackers and the Pokemon know all the hms apart from Fly.
Note : I have added natures but they don't really matter all that much as this is an in-game team.


Delphox @ Expert Belt (From woman in building west of Route 14 exit in Lumiose City)
Delphox is given to you by Tierno as a Lv 5 Fennekin.

Ability: Blaze
Type: Fire/Psychic
Nature: Modest
-Shadow Ball (Terminus Cave/Move Reminder)
-Psyshock/Psychic (lv 34/51)
-Flamethrower (lv 42/Anistar City Pokemon Center)
-Calm Mind (Anistar City Gym)

Delphox has high Special Attack, Special Defence and Speed Making it a great starter Pokemon.
Shadow Ball is for Ghost coverage, Psysock/Psychic and Flamethrower are for STAB
and Calm Mind is for Raising it's Sp Attack and Sp Defence when you get the chance to.
It is the best starter Pokemon for this team as it doesn't share a type with Lucario or Lapras like
Chesnaught and Greninja do!


Venusaur @ Black Sludge (From Punk Guy in route 13 gate)
Venusaur is given to you by Professor Sycamore as a lv 10 Bulbasuar.

Ability: Overgrow
Type: Grass/Poison
Nature: Quiet
-Toxic (Route 14)
-Energy Ball (Route 20)
-Venoshock (Route 6)
-Cut (Parfum Palace)

Venusaur has high Special Attack and Special Defence. Toxic is for poisoning the target and setting up Venoshock, Venoshock is for destroying Fairy types and doubles in power if the opponent is poisoned
and has STAB taking its power to 195 (If my math is right??), Cut is for a hm and Energy ball is for STAB.
With its typing and Toxic+Venoshock combo Venusaur is perfect for this team!


Florges @ Rocky Helmet (In route 9 gate)
Florges is obtanable on route 4 as a lv 6-8 wild Flabebe.

Ability: Flower Veil
Type: Fairy
Nature: Modest
-Moon Blast (Move Reminder)
-Wish (Move Reminder)
-Substitute (Anistar City
-Nature Power (Ambrette Town Hotel)

Florges has high Special Attack and very high Special defence, it is also available very early in the game.
Moon Blast has STAB, Substitute is for protection, Wish is to restore Hp lost from using Substitute and
Nature Power is a great move for in-game as the move varies depending on the battle location!
Florges is one of the best Fairy types in-game and It's Moonblast easily destroys most Dragon types.
I didn't even need to think twice about putting florges in the team!


Tyrantrum @ Wide Lens (Given to you by man in Shutterbug Café)
Tyrantrum is Given to you as a Jaw Fossil in Glittering cave.

Ability: Strong Jaw
Type: Rock/Dragon
Nature: Adamant
-Crunch (lv 34)
-Dragon Claw (lv 37)
-Earthquake (lv 47)
-Rock Slide (Couriway Town Requires Waterfall)

Tyrantrum has high Attack and Defence. Its ability Strong Jaw boosts the power Crunch to 120 making it an obvious choice, Dragon claw and Rock Slide have STAB and Earthquake has high power
and steel Coverage. This makes Tyrantrum an awesome Dragon type to use in-game!


Lapras @ Fist Plate (Route 16 near fish shack Requires Strength)
Lapras is given to you by a Pokemon breeder on Route 12 at lv 30.

Ability: Water Absorb
Type: Water/Ice
Nature: Docile
-Rock Smash (From Woman in Ambrette Town)
-Strength (From Grant in Cyllage City)
-Surf (From Calem/Serena in Shalour City)
-Waterfall (From Shana on Route 19)

Lapras has good stats all round and is probabally one the best/easiest to obtain hm slaves you will get!
Note: Lapras has a slow growth rate so you may need to give it a lucky egg to hold.


Lucario @ Metronome (From man in Coumarine City Monorail Station)
Lucario is given to you by Korrina at lv 32.

Type: Fighting/Steel
Ability: Steadfast
Nature: Hasty
-Power-Up Punch (Lv 15)
-Facade (Dendimelle Town)
-Payback (Geosenge Town)
-Protect (Parfum Palace)

Lucario has great Attack and Special Attack stats but I thought it would be better to give it a physical moveset
since I already have 3 great Special Attack Pokemon! Facade is great if its burned poisoned or paralized and Payback is a great move if it moves last and Power Up Punch is awesome with the item Metronome!


Thanks for reading! Feel free to leave comment on anything I missed out on or you think I should add/change! Also if you used this as your team tell me what you thought of it!

I'm not putting in movesets or anything fancy like that since I don't remember the exact movesets of my final team, it'll just be the Pokémon and a description of why I used it. You can get all of it by Ambrette town, too! So, here goes nothing.

Chesnaught (Nickname: Kool-Aid Man)
I never really liked Fire type starters (I know, sue me.) and I already had a Water type planned, so Chespin was the remaining choice. It's really grown on me, and I think that it was worth choosing the Grass starter. Grass/Fighting is a really fun combo.

Blastoise (Nickname: 100% Blast)
This is the Water type I had planned. I always loved Squirtle, and having a Blastoise just felt natural to me.

Talonflame (Nickname: Phillie)
I saw Serena use Fletchling in the capture tutorial and I was all like "She has one already?! I want one!" I got one. It's a really solid Fire/Flying type, despite all of the weaknesses it has. It's really fast, and with no item, Acrobatics destroys everything.

Blaziken (Nickname: N/A)
I know, I accidentally used 2 fire and 2 fighting types. It's good, even though I didn't really have fun with it. It got too overpowered with the boosted EXP. Next time I use this team, I'll use an Aegislash. Since you only get Torchic until January, I'd put Aegislash in the spotlight for this one.

Gardevoir (Nickname: God Of War)
More people than I thought are using one. Wow. This was my test for the Fairy type. I took a liking to it quickly. A powerful Special attacker, I highly suggest it.

Furfrou (Nickname: Noodles)
FURFROU?! WHY A FURFROU?! Calm down and listen. Furfrou is actually a very balanced normal type. It excels in every stat except Defense. Normal type plus bad defense is a problem, right? Not so fast. It's ability Fur Coat halves damage taken from physical moves, essentialy doubling Defense. Furfrou is definitely worth checking out.

Hope this helps!

I just did another playthrough of X recently, and my team was pretty good: Chesnaught, Charizard, Lapras, Gardevoir, Gallade (because I'm an idiot) and Goodra.  Check this team out also!
How do you get a torchic? I am going to buy x or y and I want a blaziken in my team
Dude you forgot moves...
I liked that you gave explanations for each Pokemon and everything, but if you had just added move sets I wouldn't have to use an up-vote to make your votes 0... Especially when they were much higher

Not sure if you knew this, but this is an in-game team, and you can't get a Greninja with Protean in-game.  Might want to change that.
I got a protean greninja as my starter pokemon

My copy of x just came in, and I'm planning on getting the following team.
I'm using movesets from comments above. Please rate my team or help make it better, that's partly why I'm posting it.

image
Chesnaught @ Miracle seed
Grass/Fight
Ability: Overgrow
- Rock Slide
- Seed Bomb
- Bulk Up
- Brick Break

Your starter, looking cool. Isn't used much, but I like him.
It's really weak against flying, so that explains Rock Slide. Seed Bomb is STAB, and doesn't have recoil like Wood Hammer. Bulk up raises attack and defence stats. Brick Break is also STAB and it breaks screens.

image
Blastoise @ Blastoisinite
Water
Ability: Torrent
- Surf
- Hydro cannon
- Rain Dance
- Skull Bash

A water type to save Chesnaught from fire. Also a great kanto starter.
You just need surf, that's the only reason it's in. Hydro cannon is a great water move, and Rain Dance even helps it. Skull Bash for a good normal type move.

image
Gardevoir @ Gardevoirite
Psychic/Fairy
Ability: Trace
- Psychic
- Moon Blast
- Shadow Ball
- Thunderbolt

This is your special attacker/sweeper. Of course Gardevoir also has a mega evolution.
I don't think the moves need much explanation, just your special moves that fit Gardevoir perfectly. And yes, I know, it's very offensive.

image
Aegislash @ ???
Steel/Ghost
Ability: No Guard
- Shadow Claw
- Iron Head
- Sacred Sword
- King's Shield

I know that it's being used very much, but it's just a great Pokemon!
Shadow Claw and Iron Head are STAB moves. Sacred Sword helps against the steel type's that resist Iron Head, and King's Shield is a brilliant defensive move. Also lowers the opponent's attack.

image
Talonflame @ NO ITEM
Fire/Flying
Ability: Flame Body
- Fly
- Acrobatics
- Flamethrower
- Solar Beam/Overheat

It's not being used much, but I needed a flying type. You can get it early, and without an item acrobatics is pretty powerfull.
Flamethrower is your STAB move. It's really weak against rock types, so you could use Solar Beam to cover that up. If you want to use Blastoise for the rock types, you can also learn it another strong fire type move like overheat.

image
Tyrantrum @ ???
Rock/Dragon
Ability: Strong Jaw
- Earthquake
- Giga Impact
- Stone Edge
- Dragon Claw

I guess you could call this a sweeper, but it's more a filler actually. Look nice and is a dragon type. Earthquake is just an amazing move, and Giga Impact is very strong. Stone Edge and Dragon Claw are STAB moves.

That's it! Sorry for any mistakes in my English, it's not my first language.
If you have any comments, please let me know.

I don't see how this is a team for any starter.  It looks to me like this could only happen if you were to pick Chespin and Charmander as starters.  Could you explain how this is a team for any starter?  I'm kind if confused.  Thx
Charizard cant learn Brave Bird at all...... Uggggh....... This whole team is such a fail.........

I got rid of my Greninja once I got a Squirtle from Wonder Trade, I also used to use an Alakazam but decided to switch him out for a Gardevoir. I also wanted a Dragonite on my team but seeing as Fairy types now destroy Dragon types I decided against it.

Here is my in- game team

[email protected] Lum Berry
Type Fairy. Ability Flowery Veil
Moonblast/Dazzling Gleam( Dazzling Gleam is only for Double Battles)
Calm Mind
Protect/Flash( Protect is only for Double Battles)

[email protected] Sitrus Berry
Type Ground/Ghost. Ability Iron Fist
Earthquake
Dynamic Punch/Hammer Arm
Curse/Toxic
Phantom Force

[email protected] White Herb
Type Water/Ice. Ability Shell Armor
Shell Smash
Icicle Spear/ Icicle Crash( Depends on your style of battle)
Surf
Iron Defense

[email protected] Quick Claw
Type Poison/Dragon. Ability Poison Touch
Dragon Pulse/Draco Meteor
Waterfall
Surf
Sludge Bomb

[email protected] Sky Plate
Type Dragon/Flying. Ability Frisk
Hurricane
Dragon Pulse
Fly/Air Slash (Fly is only for Double Battles)
Flamethrower

[email protected]
Type Steel/Rock(Only Steel when Mega Evolved) Ability. Sturdy( Filter if Mega Evolved)
Earthquake
Iron Tail
Heavy Slam
Power Up Punch/ Metal Sound

Why This is my team:
Yes I know that I have 2 dragon types on my team, the reason I have protect as a DB only move is for Florges who I normally pair with dragalgae so If It uses surf it will only hit opponents.( Yes I know this kinda sucks) Sometimes I use a Beedrill with a Life Orb as a quick sweeper but I decided to put my cloyster in instead, if I have cloyster use shell smash its white herb will restore its defense back to normal. Golurk can use curse as a counter to agislash's kings shield (the steel elite four member really annoyed me) I don't have much to say about noivern and aggron exept that they are amazing assets to
any team! Thx!!!
P.S sorry about that competitive battling stuff.

You do know this says GOOD IN-GAME TEAM not good competitive team's
Yeah, plus you would get killed by the Fairy..
For Golurk I'd get rid of dynamic punch and go for fly instead

Hey how about this,Pokemon X
Charizard
Attacks:
Fly
Flare blitz/Flamethrower
Dragon Claw
Earthquake
Flare blitz can be killer with mega charizard x but if you don’t like the recoil flamethrower is good.
Fly will work good , Dragon Claw has STAB.Tough claws will work wonders with this moveset.

Gardevoir
Attacks:
Psychic

Here is a team that I think would be very effective

Chesnaught (Grass/Fighting)
enter image description here
Moves:
Bulk Up/Swords Dance
Hammer Arm
Seed Bomb
Strength

Chesnaught is a great starter for beginning players due to the fighting type which can hit five different types for super effective damage. Swords Dance is for raising attack to insane levels or you could use Bulk Up to be on the safe side. Hammer Arm is a great fighting stab that Chesnaught can pull off anyways due to its mediocre speed. Seed Bomb hits bulky water types for a good amount of damage and strength is there for an HM move. Also it can use fighting moves to hit its weakness, ice. It can do great against Siebold, the water elite four and other gyms such as rock and electric.

Salamence(Dragon/Flying)
via Route 8
enter image description here
Moves:
Dragon Claw
Flamethrower/Fire Blast
Earthquake
Fly

Salamence is a great choice early on in the game due to its insane power. You can get it on Route 8 right outside or the Zubat Roost. Dragon Claw hits for a hard stab move only resisted by Steel and Fairy. Flamethrower is accurate and has more PP but Fire Blast hits harder. Lets say a fire type comes in on Chesnaught, you would switch to Salamence, resist the hit and then earthquake it. Fly is just there to get around on your awesome dragon. Salamence does well against the grass and psychic gyms(You'll probably have Crunch because you get Earthquake late in-game).

Rotom-H(Electric/Fire)
via Lost Hotel Tuesdays in Trash Can
enter image description here
Moves:
Overheat
Volt Switch
Thunderbolt
Shadow Ball

Rotom-H while getting fairly late (after sixth gym) it is a great Pokemon with great typing. Overheat is the only damaging fire move it gets but great for hitting ice types that bother Chesnaught and Salamence.Volt Switch is to get off the field to clear the Spa drop from Overheat.Thunderbolt is a good stab move that can hit water types or you can Volt Switch to keep it safe. Lastly Shadow ball is a good coverage move when facing ghost and psychic types. Rotom-H does well against all the gym leaders it has to face, psychic and ice.

Crawdaunt(Water/Dark)
via Good Rod/Super Rod Route 3
enter image description here
Moves:
Dragon Dance/ Swords Dance
Crabhammer
Crunch
Surf

I bet you're wondering about this choice and why I didn't pick Mega Blastoise or something. The reason is Dragon Dance. If you can manage to breed for a Corphish to get dragon dance its the best link to the team. If not a jolly swords dance will do just as fine. Crawdaunt can OHKO any Pokemon in the elite four (except for Wikstrom's Probopass because of Sturdy). You can get it right before the 5th gym and it does superb against the psychic gym.

Vivillon(Bug/Flying)
via Route 2
enter image description here
Moves:
Sleep Powder
Quiver Dance
Hurricane
Bug Buzz

Warning!!!, only use this with the ability compound eyes otherwise Hurricane will miss a lot. Vivillon is great because it gets a free setup with sleep powder and quiver dance, than hit accordingly with an accuracy-boosted Hurricane or Bug Buzz stab. It does well against the fighting, grass, and psychic gyms. Also you can get it on the first route in the game making it very useful and its fully evolved at level 12.

Gengar(Ghost/Poison)@Gengarite
via Route 14
enter image description here
Moves:
Shadow Ball
Sludge Bomb
Dazzling Gleam
Focus Blast

Basically if you want to use an all out Spa monster, Mega Gengar is your man. It has access to Dazzling Gleam to hit Dark types and Focus Blast to hit Steel types and 2 useful stab moves. Its impossible to stop (except Mega Mawile but no trainer in the game uses it), especially with a base 170 Special attack stat. If you want more of a challenge don't use the Gengarite so that you're not just sweeping everything. You get it right before the fairy gym just when you need it but don't start it in battle due to the Mawile, use Rotom-H instead. It does well against the fairy and psychic gyms. Also if you can't trade just use Haunter, it still has a base 115 Spa stat.

So yeah this is my team I recommend its got pretty good type coverage. You will have trouble against Grant's Amaura so catch a wild Hawlucha to help you there. Also there are 3 members weak to ice so against Wulfric, send out Rotom-H and use Overheat on Abomasnow, switch to Crawdaunt because Cryogonal has low HP and Def so you can Crunch it, than switch back to Rotom-H to one-shot Avalugg with Overheat again.
