This is for Gold/Silver, right?
Both are bad on either mons
Yes...
What do you want to do with these Pokemon? Do you want to battle other people, in-game trainers, or something else?

Not really. Alakazam has the superior Special Attack, but it doesn't gain STAB from Thunder Punch like Ampharos does. But why bother using it on either? Use Thunderbolt instead. If you're not willing to breed a Mareep with Thunderbolt, Thunder also works on Ampharos. Don't use Thunder Punch on Alakazam, and only use it on Ampharos if you don't want to use Thunderbolt or Thunder.

I mean, this is for Gold and Silver.
That's what I'm writing it for. I said "Special Attack", not "Attack".
Ampharos can't learn thunderbolt in GS.
It can as an Egg Move.
