A good Water type replacement would be Gyarados. It can hit extremely hard, excellent for in-game.

Gyarados @ Mystic Water / Black Glasses
Ability: Intimidate
- Aqua Tail / Waterfall
- Earthquake
- Crunch
- Ice Fang / Stone Edge

A good psychic type replacement would be Alakazam if you can trade, Espeon if you can't. They're both excellent special attackers, and your team has a noticeable lack of those.

Alakazam @ anything
Ability: Synchronize
- Psychic
- Energy Ball
- Dazzling Gleam
- Shadow Ball

Espeon @ Twisted Spoon
Ability: Synchronize
- Psychic
- Dazzling Gleam
- Shadow Ball
- Grass Knot

Alternatively, Starmie is another Water/Psychic type, and it's essentially a frailer, more offensive Slowbro.

Starmie @ anything
Ability: Natural Cure
- Surf
- Ice Beam
- Thunderbolt
- Psychic

Hope I helped!

I’m assuming this is for an in-game play through.
I’d go with Gyarados.
•it’s easily obtainable, as it can be obtained with a high encounter rate from fishing almost anywhere
•It’s got the awesome ability Intimidate that lowers the opponent’s attack
•it’s got a solid 125 attack stat, and also decent bulk in 95 HP, 100 SpD, and 79 Defense (the opponent’s attack is lowered by Intimidate anyways)
•it’s got pretty good typing, being weak to 2 types, resistant to 5, and immune to one.

and for a set:
Gyarados @ Waterium-Z
•Dragon Dance
•Aqua Tail
•Ice Fang
Hope this helps!

I know this is a bit old and already have answers but I'd like to include my own answer

I looked on Marriland and saw that three of your Pokemon are weak to Fire, two are weak to Rock, two are weak to Bug, two are weak to Flying and two are weak to Ice. The best dual-type combination that can handle those weaknesses is Water-Rock.

The only Water-Rock type Pokemon you can find in the Alolan Pokedex is Tirtouga/Carracosta.

Therefore, I will include a suggested moveset for Turtouga/Carracosta

Carracosta @ Mystic Water / Hard Rock (boosts the power of your STAB)


Ability: Sturdy

  • Crunch - a strong move that has a chance of lowering the opposing Pokemon's Defense

  • Aqua Tail - STAB

  • Rock Slide - STAB

  • Bulldoze - strong move that covers Electric-type weakness

Carracosta has a solid Attack stat and a great Defense stat making it a bulky physical attacker. It's slow but for in-game, it doesn't really need to rely on speed, just attack and win.

Or if you don't want to use Carracosta, your next best bet would be a type combination of Water-Fighting.

A good Water-fighting Pokemon would be Poliwrath

Poliwrath @ Mystic Water / Black Belt (boosts the power of your STAB)


Ability: Water Absorb

  • Submission / Brick Break - STAB

  • Body Slam - strong Normal-type move, has chance of paralysis

  • Bulldoze - covers Electric-type weakness

  • Waterfall - STAB

Poliwrath has solid defenses of 90/95/90. It's Attack stat is also good and is a bit slow but again, not really important for in-game use.

Hope I helped!
