I Have played through Platinum (I have played it 8 times in 4 months)and I have decided to do another run and use mons I have never used I am a bit confused what to add to my team Please tell

My team in Platinum is


I still have to add a water type I have used Golduck and Floatzel as my water type so please don't suggest them
I also have to add a electric type I have used Luxray and Magnezone so please don't suggest them too
And If possible please suggest a moveset too this is a Ingame team so please suggest moves available before the E-4

Thank you(In Advance)

Gyarados, Vaporeon, Azumarill, Rotom, Jolteon and Raichu are some options off the top of my head.
I think I will use Rotom and Vaporeon and BTW how to change rotom forms??
I may also use Milotic instead of vaporeon

Rotom's type WILL change and you can decide what move to get rid of for the special move.
Maybe I'm wrong, but I thought that rotom's type didn't change

For the water type, I suggest good old Gyarados since you can get it really early. For it's final moveset, I would suggest

- Ice Fang
- Earthquake
- Dragon Dance
- Aqua Tail / Waterfall

All of those are available as level up moves or tm before elite four

For electric, maybe Electivire

- Thunder Punch
- Fire Punch
- Ice Punch

The last move is any move of your choice. Only ice punch is tutor move. The other two is from level up

Hmm The suggestions and efforts is appreciated but I have used Gyarados A ton of times and I prefer Special Water and electric types to use Surf And Thunderbolt also Electivire is cool with amazing coverage but it is a trade evolution  and is a physical attacker so his most reliable move being thunder punch lacks power I play on a rom so I can't trade
If you can't trade then how did you get a Magmortar?

In water type, I'll suggest Quagsire
I've use a Quagsire in Pearl, and it works pretty well thanks to it's typing of Water and Ground and only has a 4x weakness to grass, and also in your team, it gives you a bonus ground type which you dont has one in your team. Ground type makes you has a bonus ype advantage at the elitle four of Aaron's drapion, and the champion's lucario.

Moveset Suggestion:
Pokemon: Quagsire
Suggest Item:Leftovers
Suggest Ability: Water Absorb
-Earthquake (Lv 36)
-Waterfall (HM 07) or Aqua Tail (Move Tutor)
-Break Brick (TM 31)
-Your Choice

And last, the electric type was Jolteon
Jolteon was a nice Pokemon I've use in my Pearl playthrough, it got good speed and special attack and ability was not too bad. Also, you nedd a special Pokemon in your team seems that besides togekiss your other Pokemon or mainly Psychical, so I choose Jolteon.

Quagsire's stats are pretty bad. It'll often move last and not one-shot the opponent.
Also the signal beam tutor is post-game.

Jolteon @ choice specs
EVs: 100 SpA
- quick attack -> thunder wave
- thunder
- shadow ball
- thunderbolt

After Magnezone and Luxray (and excluding Electivire), Jolteon has the highest attack stat (either physical or special attack) out of all electric Pokemon in Sinnoh. Its other stats don't matter when it outspeeds and one-shots so many things.

- rock smash
- cut -> rock climb
- surf
- strength -> waterfall

Having 6 battlers isn't the best idea. With a HM slave Bibarel, your 5 battlers will be able to gain more experience, reach higher levels, and learn less HM moves.

Also I recommend using Staraptor, Crobat, or Chatot instead of Togekiss. The time it takes to hatch, level up, and evolve Togekiss just isn't worth any of the stuff that Togekiss can do.
