So I decided to bring a Swampert over to my current game and reached a small hole. Who do I replace? My current team is
Salamence: Fly, Flamethrower, Outrage, Dragon claw.
Genesect: Techno blast, Flamethrower, Ice beam, Thunderbolt
Magnezone: Gyro ball, Discharge, Tri attack, Zap Cannon,
Metagross: Meteor mash, Thunder punch, Flash Cannon, Hammer arm
Garchomp: Draco Meteor, Flamethrower, Earth power, Dragon Pulse
NidoKing: Megahorn, Stone edge, Toxic, Drill Run

What game is this for?
What do you plan on using this team for?
I plan on using this team as a powerful sweeper, to you know, take out the enemy as quickly as possible.
And the game is Pokémon Sword and Shield.
This is in-game, correct?
When we see type overlap, both Nidoking and Garchomp overlaps ground typing with Swampert. Salamence overlaps Dragon typing with Garchomp. If you provide the movesets for each, it would be easier to decide who should be eliminated.
@SplashyCat9251 I'll re-phrase the question. Will you be using this team to battle in-game trainers, play online battles, play the Battle Tower, or something else? If you are playing online battles, you should re-post this to the RMT section with full details of all your Pokemon's movesets.
It is hard to give you advice as things stand because you told us very little about what you're trying to do.
Ok the move sets for everyone
Salamence: Fly, Flamethrower, Outrage, Dragon claw.
Genesect: Techno blast, Flamethrower, Ice beam, Thunderbolt
Magnezone: Gyro ball, Discharge, Tri attack, Zap Cannon,
Metagross: Meteor mash, Thunder punch, Flash Cannon, Hammer arm
Garchomp: Draco Meteor, Flamethrower, Earth power, Dragon Pulse
NidoKing: Megahorn, Stone edge, Toxic, Drill Run
And for what I will be doing with this, I’ll do mostly Battle tower
And just in case, Swampert’s move set is Stealth Rock, Earthquake, Waterfall, and Stone edge
Is Genesect allowed in the Battle Tower?
I'm pretty sure it's the same as the last few regions where there was the first "round" of battles you can use Legendaries and then in the harder version you can't
Yes Genesect is allowed in Battle tower as I played some rounds with Genesect on my team. He was mostly paired up with Regigis or Metagross.
Probably you should remove Garchomp from your team (special Garchomp is bad... plus its moveset is also overlapped i.e. Genesect and Salamence have Flamethrower, Salamence has a Dragon type move, and as I said earlier, there are three Ground types if you include Swampert.
you should answer Staraptor
