I need to deicide which one to be my surf Pokemon. Not asking for a discussion, just the moves that you found worked best for each one, offensive/defensive movesets, or at least 3 REASONS one is better than the other. You don't have to do every single one of the three options listed.
Staryu/Starmie are generally better Pokemon, due to their Special Attack, Speed, and Type Coverage over the Slowpoke chain. If you want a bulkierPokemon, go Slowpoke.

Starmie @ Leftovers
Ability: Natural Cure
EV Spread: 252 SpAtk, 252 Spd, 4 HP
Hydro Pump (Move Relearner)
Recover (Move Relearner)
Ice Beam (TM)
This moveset is good for in-game, as it gives you nice STAB, coverage for Grass with Ice Beam, and Recover for some health restore.
Use slowpoke because slowpoke has a high SPEC. Atk. And high spec. Def.
Flamethrower and ice beam will help defend your Pokemon from super effective moves against slowpoke. The surf is for its high spec. Atk. Slowpoke can defend really good so use that Pokemon.
