i am playing thruogh the game emerald and I thought of a team which resists every type in the game but have a confusion on which fossil I should choose.Also I want to use a fossil because I never used a fossil before.
team-
blaziken
gardevoir
gyarados
cacturne
magneton
armaldo/cradilly

Is this a good team?Which fossil is better on this team?Any changes required for this team?

just so you know,
you can get both fossil pokemon.
 
you can get one by choosing it in mirage tower and the other by finishing the game and going to the fossil maniac

Best answer

Let's see, shall we?

Armaldo

Armaldo
Pros
A high ATK of 125
Decent in terms of Physical Defense, with a respectable base DEF of 100
Rock/Bug typing, making it weak to 3 types only
Rock/Bug are both Physical types, so you can utilize its' STAB well

Cons
Very slow
Shallow movepool, not counting TMs, Tutors and Egg Moves
Barely has any Bug STAB, it being only Fury Cutter which isn't even the best
A little poor in terms of Defense, specially

Cradily

Cradily
Pros
Respectable defensive stats with 97/107 respectively
Gets things like Solar Beam, Giga Drain and Earthquake through TMs and Egg
A somewhat wider movepool than Armaldo by a mile
Can be trained to a great multi-tank, maybe can be put up for a good use somewhere in the late-game competitive facilities

Cons
Nothing so special offensively, with its offensive stats 81/81 respectively
It is only special in terms of defensive stats, however defense is not much prioritized in-game, unfortunately
Grass/Rock isn't necessarily a bad typing, but It is clearly not the best either
Slower than Armaldo
Has a type overlap with your Cacturne


In this case, I recommend you to go with Armaldo. It can be a physical sweeping beast if trained properly, and I believe a proper speed training will also make up for that awful speed.

Armaldo
Armaldo @ Anything
Ability: Battle Armor
Recommended Nature/s: Adamant
- Ancient Power
- Fury Cutter
- Protect / Swords Dance
- Earthquake / Metal Claw / Brick Break

Hope this helps!
