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

You cannot obtain Eelektross in x/y Without transferring from another game, Apart from that this is a good team. you could possibly use Greninja as you haven't used a starter?

I love the dragon type so if you don't, this team ain't for you.
I don't know how to post pictures as this is my first time posting but I will figure it out. Just gonna copy paste. I have tons of teams made in my google drive but I am playing through right now with this one.

Chesnaught-Fighting, Grass Starter
-Wood Hammer
-Hammer Arm
-Stone Edge
-Seed Bomb

This is a tanky Pokemon and I am loving the damage. Maybe it isn't your favorite but this is the setup I have planned. Wood Hammer has way to much damage to pass up. The recoil is a side affect that is hard to ignore though this is your move to clean up a team. Not something you would constantly use. That is what seed bomb is for. Both have STAB and 15 PP. I originally had earthquake here, but you need a backup to avoid recoil. Hammer arm is extremely powerful and takes the STAB damage. So what it lowers the speed? Chesnaught is to slow to worry about losing any speed. It is worth it. Stone Edge is good insurance for fire and ice types.

Garchomp-Ground, Dragon Route 13
-Earthquake
-Dragon Claw
-Stone Edge
-Swords Dance

Garchomp. Earthquake. Dragon Claw. Stone Edge. Swords Dance. You don't need an explanation. Just take it.

Blastoise-Water Gift
-Surf
-Hydro Pump
-Ice Beam
-Scald/ Flash Cannon

Surf is an HM that is a necessity. It would be a good TM! You get power and an HM. Very good. Hydro Pump is a killer. Mostly for situations when you need raw power. Otherwise surf will be fine. Ice Beam is more for diversity and it is a solid move. Scald is very similar to Surf except it adds the burn factor. Flash Cannon will take dragons and offers more diversity.

Aurorus-Ground, Ice, Gift
-Ice Beam
-ThunderBolt
-Psychic
-Earthquake

Solid build. Ice Beam gets STAB and will wreck anything in your way. Thunderbolt will take care of pesky water types and isn't a bad all around move. Psychic was just a filler and a solid move. Earthquake will not pick up STAB sadly, but is not bad.

Magnezone-Steel, Electric Lost Hotel or Friend Safari
-Thunder Wave
-Flash Cannon
-Thunderbolt
-Thunder

This kills fairy's so easy its not even funny. Thunder wave is gonna be helpful for fast enemies and really any enemies. Flash Cannon brings demise upon fairies and deserves to be here. Plus its a solid steel move. Thunderbolt and thunder will demolish anything not resistant to electric.

Hydreigon-Dark, Dragon Captured on Victory Road
-Dragon Pulse
-Fly
-Dark Pulse
-Flamethrower

Dragon Pulse pulls out nice STAB as well as Dark Pulse. Both good moves. Flamethrower takes care of Steel types. Fly is mostly for post game. That's my team. I would love suggestions.

GRENINJA
-Surf (STAB + HM)
-Ice Beam
-Extrasensory
-Dark Pulse(STAB)
Ability: torrent
Item:Expert. Belt

Greninja is a starter water type Pokemon. I don't like the ability protean, even though every move is a stab (same type attack bonus) you may cause weaknesses you don't need (protean for experienced trainers) ice beam and Extrasensory protect Greninja from bug, grass, fighting. This now only leaves Greninja two weaknesses electric and fairy I normally use dig until I can get darkpulse. Greninja is the fastest starter and a great special attack sweeper. And will get you past the first few gyms quickly unlike Delphox and chestnaught who aren't super effective to the first 3 gyms unless you evolve briaxen super quickly and spend hours in the grass fighting all wild Pokemon. Give Greninja the expert belt because it boosts the damage off super effective moves so many gyms are a joke as long as you have a super effective move you can wreck with non stab moves due to your hi speed and special attack stat.

TALONFLAME
-Roost
-Brave Bird(STAB)
-Flareblitz(STAB)
-Steel Wing/power up punch
Ability: Flame Body
Item:Sitrus berry

Fletchling is super easy to catch and find right when you start your journey the first 3 routes are infested with Fletchling and there so easy find, and have a high catch rate. And they evolve with your starter. Meaning they evolve almost at the same level (one level difference) the flame body ability is the fire type version of static effect spore and poised point. But, better because when your opponent is burned they lose a lot of attack power which makes up for your recoil attacks. And while there trying to focus on healing the burn you can roost and heal yourself. Another benefit is that many Pokemon hold the life orb which increases there attack dramatically but at the cost of losing some health every round. Which is good because they lose health 2x as fast. The moveset is great because you have 2 great stab moves but at the cost of a little damage butt hats were roost comes in your high speed can heal you before the next attack and steel wing and power-up punch protect you from those pesky rock types. Poweruo punch is a guaranteed attack boost but less damage then steel wing but steel wing has a ten 10% chance to raise its attack and slightly less accuracy.

VENASAUR
-Earthquake
-Sludge Bomb(STAB)/growth
-Giga Drain(STAB)
-Sleep Powder
Ability:Thick Fat
Item: Venasaurite

Venasaur is a tank. It's high def and special def make up for its lack of speed. It's mega makes it more tanky. Plus thick fat which is op for venasaur because thick fat reduces fire and ice type attacks so there goes two weaknesses. Plus earthquake can protect it from steel and rock types. If your starting to get low on health whip out. Sleep powder it puts the opponent to sleep letting you regen with Giga drain
and maybe growth to power up Giga drain and other moves.

DIANCE
-Stealth Rock
-Moon Blast(STAB )
-Diamond Storm(STAB)
-Trick Room
Ability:Clear Body
Item:Absorb Bulb

Diance isn't considered a legendary Pokemon and very easily to obtain due to the common diance Nintendo events. Is ability clear body prevents it from its stats to be lowered. Also the held item which is the absorb bulb is good because it protects diance from water type attacks and raising here special attack stat which promotes all of here attack so instead of water being deadly its helpful. Also diance and almost every rock type Pokemon normally are slow that's were trick room room comes into play it makes her and here teammates attack first. Which is good for slow teammates like venasaur. also in competitive battling its common Pokemon will switch out so stealth rock is a deadly hazard to you turn and volt switch users.

HELIOLISK
-Thunder(STAB)
-Hyper Voice(STAB )
-Surf
-Rain Dance
Ability: Dry Skin
Item: Life Orb

HELIOLISK, one of the rare Pokemon that's not a water type that can learn surf. Also rain dance heals heliolisk which make up for life orb which increases damage at the cost of losing a small bit of health. So rain dance powers up surf covering its weakness and making sure thunder always hits. Plus it supports Greninja. Heliolisk is a win win Pokemon that I recommend for all trainers.

GARCHOMP
-Earthquake(STAB )
-Dragon Claw(STAB )
-Fire Fang
-Poisen Jab
Ability: Rough Skin
Item: Rocky. Helmet

Garchomp is a frickin land shark. With op attack stat and speed with moves that covers all of its weaknesses. Like fire fang and poison jab. Also if you ev train it in attack and special def you'll be an op tank because once your opponent sees your rough skin and rocky helmet combo physical attacks wont be a good choice becusse that attacking Pokemon will lose about 1/4 of there total health this speedy sweeper is a force to be reckoned with.

My team for X and Y is one of my favorites! If you haven't read any of my other posts, you should know that I play for fun on my playthrough and build my competitive teams later on, so this may or may not work for you. I'll explain myself on this. So basically I got Pokemon Y, built my whole team - which was underleveled at the time - within the first two days, beat the first 2 gyms with much difficulty, and lost my 2DS (don't judge) for about 2 months. After I found my 2DS, I proceeded to beat the rest of the game and the entire post game in 2 days. These Pokemon grew on me a lot, and have since become my 2nd favorite team (after Pokemon White 2) ever.

Delphox
Ability: Blaze
Item: Charcoal
Mystical Fire
Psybeam
Psychic
Flamethrower
Yes, I chose Fenniken instead of Ninja-Frog, deal with it. Both of my friends introduced me to Pokemon, and they started with X and Y (yes I am rather new to this, I understand. My first game was actually Alpha Sapphire). They had both picked Fenniken, and convinced me to pick him as well, and I REGRET NOTHING. Even though Delphox has a not entirely pleasant appearance, its Special Attack is great, it is fairly bulky on the Special Defense side, and it has quite a bit of Speed to boot. Plus, it's cry is awesome. Just thought I'd through that in there.

Blastoise
Item: Blastoisinite
Ability: Torrent > Mega Launcher
Iron Defense
Scald
Strength
Water Pulse
Squirtle had been my least favorite of the 1st gen starters until I played Pokemon Y. It just never held any appeal to me. Now that I have seen the true power that is Mega Blastoise, I am sold. Yes, I do realize that I have strength on this thing, but SOMEBODY had to learn it, because I am not wasting a slot in my team for an HM slave. Iron Defense just helps to increase Blastoise's bulkiness even more, Water Pulse was kind of just because I had an extra move slot open, and Scald is now my absolute favorite water-type move after using it on this thing. If you don't want strength, I'd run, I don't know, Protect? Whatever you want, really.

Aurorus
Ability: Refrigerate
Item: None
Icy Wind
Ice Beam
Rock Tomb
Rock Smash
If I had to name the weakest link on this team, it'd be this guy. I do realize that Aurorus isn't exactly great, but he's decent (and adorable), I really don't have much to say about him. He is rather nice against dragons and was a MAJOR help against Grant (even though I have a Fairy type on this team). And Ice Beam is always a nice move to have on your team.

Heliolisk
Ability: Dry Skin
Item: None
Volt Switch
Thunderbolt
Surf
Parabolic Charge
I think the first question I am asked about this Pokemon is "Why surf?". I put down Surf simply for coverage, and also because I wanted to have something a little bit surprising. This may not sound like a huge deal to you, but I nearly beat my friend who introduced me to the game with this team when they were fresh out of completing the post game. She's really good at the game, and this guy was a bit help, especially since Surf was not predicted and I pulled it out at the last second.

Florges
Ability: Flower Veil
Item: None
Magical Leaf
Razor Leaf
Fairy Wind
Dazzling Gleam
Florges is my favorite Fairy type (with the exception of Gardevoir), and on this team she did not disappoint. I know, I know, I evolved her way too early and missed out on Moonblast, but she can still pull her weight on the team. Believe me, if she couldn't I would've replaced her with a Gardevoir or a Talonflame in an instant. My biggest issue with her is her ability. It is virtually useless considering as I have no grass types.

Malamar
Ability: Suction Cups
Item: None (I didn't really place items on any of them)
Hypnosis
Psycho Cut
Psybeam
Payback
I may be the first one to say this, but Malamar is great. It has a very solid attack stat, and most of these moves utilize it, and they also utilize its typing, since all of these moves have STAB. Hypnosis is just to annoy people, and mostly used on fairy types since fairy type moves can utterly wreck this thing.

Again, this team may not work for you, but I really enjoyed it and it was a lot of fun.

The Fox Pokemon

Choose fenniken as your starter and then it is usally evolved by the time you are out of reflection cave into Delphox

[email protected]

Fire Blast
Psychic
Pchyshock
Cut

Delphox may give you some struggles in the second gym but in the 1st, 3rd, 4th, and 8th gym it will have the super effective moves. I would also recommend this Pokemon because it is a special attacker and learns physical attacks throughout the game.

The Seed Pokemon

Select Bulbasaur which will evolve to Venusaur around Geosenge Town. You select Bulbasaur after you battle Professor Sycamore in his lab when you first visit Lumiose City.

[email protected] Venusaurite

Sleep Powder
Petal Blizard
Petal Dance
Sludge Bomb

I picked to have Venusaur instead of Charizard or Blastoise because in the Pokemon League there is a water type Elite 4 member which only has grass and electric for weaknesses and there's not many of those in the game.

Keep smashing rocks in the Glittering Cave and after a while you will find an Old Amber. Take it to the fossil Lab in Amberette Town to restore it into Aerodactyl.

[email protected]

Strength
Rock Slide
Fly
Rock Smash

I got Aerodactyl because I can use him to fly me around plus to cover an Elite 4 member which is the fire type one.

You can get a Pancham on route 5. To evolve it into Pangoro you need to have a dark type on your team ( You can catch sandile on route 9) and pancham to be at least lv 32

[email protected] Belt

Crunch
Power-Up Punch or Brick Break
Hammmer Arm
Surf

I put Pangoro on my team because there is a steel type Elite 4 member. It would be nice to cover every weakness so how about a fighting type to cover normal. If you want Power-Up Punch make sure that it has iron fist. If you want brick break than there are no requirments.

To get Sylveon you need to catch an evee in either a poke ball, great ball, or an ultra ball. The reason not to catch it in a luxury ball is because it doesn't evolve by happiness like espeon and umbreon. Now you have an evee, great! Head to your Pokemon Amie and feed it poke puffs (the things that look like cupcakes). When it starts eating you can play a game by tapping the musical notes( you can use this to get more pokepuffs as well). The harder you difficulty is the better poke puffs you will get. Keep repeating that until a about 25 hearts come out of your Pokemon. Now when you go to switch Pokemon in Pokemon Amie you will see that evees hearts are now at 2. Next requirement is that your evee needs to know a fairy type move. Make sure that it knows the move before it evolves. It learns baby-doll eyes at level 19 and charm at level 29.

[email protected] Plate

Moonblast
Draining Kiss
Hidden Power
Psyshock

I chose Sylveon because there is an Elite 4 member with dragon Pokemon, now we cover all the Elite 4 members. I could evolve it into Glaceon but instead I wanted a fairy type plus Fairy types have less weaknesses.

To get Meowstic you need to catch an Espurr on route 6 and it will evolve into Meoswtic at lv 25.

[email protected] Plate

Psyshock
Psychic
Dark Pulse
Fake Out

I put Meowstic on the team because I needed a good nice psychic Pokemon to help out the team a bit. Meowstic has a female and a male form. I played with both Meowstics for a while and I decided to use the female one.

I would like to thank Pokemondb for giving me a chance to write this to you guys.

The Youtuber with about 900,000 subscribers,

                                                                             TrentTED

P.S Please tell me your team. I used my team I worked with Pokemon Showdown and I used that team for my XY walkthrough.

A team that worked very well for me was this one:

Greninja-
Night Slash, Surf, Waterfall, and Dark Pulse is what I have right now. There weren't enough good water types throughout the rest of the region I wanted to use, so I used the starter. Besides, he looks pretty cool, too

Gardevoir-
Thunderbolt, Confusion, Psychic, and Dazzling Gleam. Gardevoir's specialty is special attack, so I don't use any physical moves. It has a very diverse move pool, and can take out a variety of types. It is one of the best members of my team.

Roserade-
Grass Whistle, Magical Leaf, Sludge Bomb, and Facade. I have always loved Roserade a lot, what with the special attack and speed. Its defenses aren't it's selling point, but if you throw into a battle, as long as the other Pokemon isn't strong against it, it can usually take it out before it can get hit. I have Grass Whistle mainly for catching legendaries, and Sludge Bomb/Facade for type coverage, but you can replace any of them with moves better suited to how you play.

Staraptor-
Close Combat, Wing Attack, Fly, and Brave Bird is a pretty good move set. Wing attack is powerful and has 35 PP, so having Close Combat and Brave Bird as moves only used in harder fights is okay. But it might be a good idea to replace Brave Bird with Facade, it's always good to have a normal type move. Staraptor is reliable and very easy to fight with.

Chandelure-
Flame Burst, Shadow Ball, Curse, and Inferno worked well for me. Flame Burst has 15 PP and high damage, works well as a PP move. Shadow Ball works against many types, and, like Flame Burst, has plenty of PP. Curse is good with tough battles, but since there aren't many of those in X and Y, you can replace it with something else. Inferno is good in longer battles, too. Chandelure has very high special attack, but couldn't pull off a physical attack to save its life. That's okay, though, because both of its types are predominately special. It is pretty late in the game before you can get your hands on a Litwick, though, so I take a Charmander from Professer Sycamore and use that until I can replace it.

Weavile-
Payback, Ice Shard, Screech, Strength. Payback is purely to have a physical dark type move. Options are pretty limited there. If you can find a better one, use that instead, because Weavile's speed is huge, it even outspeeds Greninja, so it is very rare that the damage will ever be doubled there. Ice Shard is very much the same, not many options. Screech is, obviously, to lower the opponent's defense so that the previous two moves work better. Strength is a powerful move with enough PP to get you through battles without a type advantage. You're screwed if Waevile has to battle a fighting type, but that's what Gardevoir/Staraptor are here for. Also, you aren't able to evolve Sneazel until AFTER the end of the game, but Sneazel is perfectly capable of holding its own, even in a team of fully evolved Pokemon. Imagine how it does once it evolves!

There are some Pokemon on this team that level up slowly, but when I played, I grinded to get everything up to level 30 just before Reflecting Cave and proceeded to beat the champion 10 levels above all of her Pokemon. This team has remarkable type coverage, and it made the game relatively easy, but not boring. It also works when fighting against legendaries and trying to catch them. It took about 5 tries to get Mewtwo, but I suck at catching Pokemon. This team wouldn't do any good competitively, but in game, it works like a charm.

Best team for me

Greninja water/dark
Hydro cannon
Dark pulse
Ice beam
Surf
Charizard fire/ flying
Blast burn
Fly
Draco meteor
Overheat
Dragonite dragon/ flying
Hyper beam
Draco meteor
Outrage
Flamethrower
lucario fighting/ steel
Aura sphere
Dragon pulse

Thunder
Electroball
Volt tackle
Iron tail
Tyrantar rock/ dark
Earthquake
Foul play
Stone edge
Giga impact

Note: All Pokémon have one HM (Not including Dig but including Rock Smash)


Greninja @Black Glasses/Mystic Water
Ability: Torrent. Nature: Relaxed
-Waterfall/Scald (If you don't want to give it waterfall)
-Ice Beam
-Extrasensory
-Dark Pulse

Because of its low defense, and having the nature Relaxed really helps out so it can survive more physical attacks. Extrasensory is AMAZING against fighting/poison types, and Ice Beam takes care of dragon/grass/ground/flying types. It is for Fire type elite 4



Golurk @Spell Tag/Sharp beak
Ability: Iron Fist. Nature: Brave
-Fly
-Earthquake
-Shadow Punch
-Power-Up Punch

This Pokémon is a tank. With Iron Fist as a ability, both Power-Up Punch and Shadow Punch become stronger, along with the Brave nature. It is for Fire/Steel elite 4



Klefki @King's Rock
Ability: Sturdy. Nature: Hasty
-Cut
-Psychic
-Dazzling Gleam
-Some Steel type move

Klefki needs the Hasty nature, it speed it very low and can't learn Gyro Ball. The psychic is for poison types. This little guy is amazing against Diantha's Tyrantrum and Aurorus. As Burgh (5th gen bug gym leader) once said: "Its the little things that count" For the dragon Elite 4



Lucario @Lucarionite
Ability: Steadfast. Nature: Bold
-Earthquake
-Strength
-Shadow Claw
-Aura Sphere

Give it the Bold nature, and BAM! Fighting Type moves aren't as effective. Not to mention being able to destroy Diantha's Gardevoir with Shadow Claw. This Pokémon is a beast. It's for Steel/Dragon elite 4



Lickilicky @Macho Brace
Ability: Oblivious. Nature: Brave
-Gyro Ball
-Surf
-Ice Beam/Thunderbolt/Flamethrower
-Thunderbolt/Flamethrower/Ice Beam

Macho Brace and the Nature Brave for Gyro Ball. Thunderbolt for water/flying. Flamethrower for bug/grass/ice/steel. Ice beam for grass/flying/ground/dragon. Surf for fire/ground/rock.



Ampharos @Ampharosite
Ability: Static. Nature: Naïve
-Thunderbolt
-Rock Smash
-Earthquake/Bulldoze
-Fire Punch

Only use Rock Smash if needed, use Fire punch against bug/grass/ice/steel. And Rock smash is for the HM

what I use for Pokemon Y is a team I've been using and is my go to team when playing through Pokemon Y.

Greninja
Modest nature
Focus sash

Surf
Ice beam
Dark pulse
Extrasensory

Surf and dark pulse are both STAB and extrasensory to deal with fighting types and ice beam for grass and flying types

Mega charizard Y
Modest nature
Charizardite

Fire blast or flamethrower
Solarbeam
Air slash
Roost

Fire blast or flamethrower and air slash for STAB with solarbeam for water types. (Will not have to charge because of drought) and roost to recover HP

Lucario
Modest nature
Life orb or choice scarf

Aura sphere
Flash cannon
Dragon pulse
Shadow ball

Aura sphere and flash cannon for STAB with dragon pulse for dragon types and shadow ball for other ghost types and psychic types

Garchomp
Adamant nature
Leftovers

Crunch
Dragon claw
Rock slide
Earthquake

Dragon claw and earthquake for STAB, crunch for other types and rock slide
For flying and ice types

Gardevoir
Modest nature
Choice scarf

Psyshock
Dazzling gleam
Energy ball
Protect

Psychock and dazzling. Gleam for STAB, energy ball for water types and others , and protect for scouting

Jolteon
Modest nature
Choice specs

Thunderbolt
Hidden power
Volt switch
Shadow ball

Thunderbolt and volt switch for STAB shadow ball for type coverage and hidden power to throw off opponents (dumb AI opponents)

One thing very important to this team is making sure to Invest in speed and special attack or attack depending on what you want. These team is very fragile and needs to hit hard and strike first and give the opponents team no chance to attack back.

I decided to try and build the most balanced team only using new Kalos Pokemon, and it honestly turned out great. All Pokemon are also available very early on. This one is around Froakie:



[email protected] Water
Ability: Torrent

  • Water Shuriken
  • Dark Pulse
  • Ice Beam
  • Surf

Water Shuriken is priority and STAB and also covers annoying Pokemon with Sturdy like Boldore and Graveler. Dark Pulse is special STAB. Ice Beam covers Grass types and Surf is more powerful Special STAB.


[email protected]
Ability: Flame Body

  • Flare Blitz
  • Fly
  • Flamethrower
  • Steel Wing

Flare Blitz is risky STAB. Fly is a crucial HM and a good move at the same time and it is STAB too. Flamethrower is special STAB and Steel Wing covers those pesky Rock types.


[email protected] Seed
Ability: Sap Sipper

  • Horn Leech
  • Earthquake
  • Rock Slide
  • Bulk Up

Horn Leech is physical STAB which also restores HP. Earthquake covers Poison types and Fire types. Rock Slide covers all its remaining weaknesses and Bulk Up improves its poor defense and its great attack.


[email protected] Tag
Ability: Stance Change

  • Iron Head
  • Shadow Sneak
  • King's Shield
  • Swords Dance

Iron Head is STAB. Shadow Sneak is also STAB as well as priority. King's Shield to swap forms and possibly lower opponents attack. Swords Dance to set up its attack.


[email protected] Fang
Ability: Strong Jaw

  • Dragon Claw
  • Rock Slide
  • Earthquake
  • Crunch

Dragon Claw is STAB and so is Rock Slide. Earthquake is powerful coverage and Crunch takes advantage of Strong Jaw, giving it 120 power.


[email protected]
Ability: Cute Charm

  • Moonblast
  • Draining Kiss
  • Shadow Ball
  • Calm Mind

Moonblast is powerful STAB. Draining Kiss to deal some damage and restore HP. Shadow Ball is coverage and Calm Mind is to set up its special stats.

One of my favorites:
Chesnaught: Hammer Arm, Bulk Up, Needle Arm, Earthquake
Aerodactyl: Iron Head, Earthquake, Stone Edge, Fly
Blastoise: Flash Cannon, Surf, Ice Beam, Protect
Raichu: Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Grass Knot, Brick Break
Houndoom: Nasty Plot, Flamethrower, Dark Pulse, Sludge Bomb
Garchomp: Earthquake, Stone Edge, Crunch, Dragon Rush

This gives us fighting, grass, ground, steel, rock, flying, water, ice, electric, fire, dark, poison, and dragon type moves. These will score super effective hits on rock, steel, ice, normal, dark, water, ground, electric, fire, poison, fairy, bug, flying, fighting, grass, dragon, ghost, and psychic. As Blue would say, this team can beat any Pokemon type.

If you pick Fennekin,
Delphox: Flamethrower, Shadow Ball, Psychic, Dazzling Gleam

The rest of your team depends on your Kanto starter.
-> Bulbasaur chosen
Crobat: Acrobatics, Fly, Cross Poison, Steel Wing
Magnezone: Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Flash Cannon, Magnet Rise
Kingdra: Dragon Pulse, Surf, Ice Beam, Focus Energy
Rhyperior: Stone Edge, Earthquake, Megahorn, Shadow Claw
Venusaur: Sludge Bomb, Energy Ball, Growth, Petal Blizzard

-> Squirtle chosen:
Lucario: Earthquake, Rock Slide, Aura Sphere, Dark Pulse
Salamence: Dragon Claw, Fly, Crunch, Zen Headbutt
Raichu: Grass Knot, Thunderbolt, Brick Break, Protect
Florges: Psychic, Energy Ball, Moonblast, Grassy Terrain
Blastoise: Surf, Ice Beam, Flash Cannon, Water Pulse (for Mega Launcher)

If you pick Bulbasaur, you need an anti-fire strategy, while if you pick Squirtle, you need an anti-water strategy. Obviously, Magnezone would be really weak against Fire, but it can help tremendously against powerful Psychic and Poison types that would put Bulbasaur at a disadvantage. Crobat is an old favorite back from the Crystal and Emerald days, and Kingdra is also a beloved Pokemon. And Rhyperior hits hard against fire types, and he can help against steel and fighting types with his Solid Rock ability.

I actually picked up Florges back when she was a Flabebe, when I planned to use her against Grant's Tyrunt, as water moves were neutralized by the dragon typing. Florges can learn lots of great attacks. Raichu is here because it's quite fast, and since Pikachu is the first electric type you can pick up, Fennekin doesn't have to shoulder the load of early battling against water types. Salamence can be obtained really early in the game as a Bagon, something that wasn't possible in Emerald. And you should teach your Blastoise Water Pulse because of his Mega Launcher ability.
