I can't beat it!
I have: Machop, Pikachu, and Absol.

Go find or buy some TMs first. Machop probably won't help much at all, but Absol should be able to learn moves like Shock Wave and Ice Beam. Pikachu should have a powerful Electric attack, since Rayquaza is Dragon and Flying. Maybe go in more Dungeons first to level up your team some more. Try getting some moves for Absol and Pikachu, too. Let me know if this works at all. It'll still probably take a couple of tries to beat Rayquaza, so don't get frustrated and make the best of each turn powering up, maybe using something to Paralyze or Poison Rayquaza, and use the strongest moves you have.

If ur Pokemon are around lvl 30, then I wouldn't be too worried.
The only attacks that Rayquaza uses are tackle, leer, and something else that's just as weak.
If you beat Groudon relatively easily, then Rayquaza will be a breeze.

Hello, I know this answer is a little late, so I hope my tips might help anyone else who happens to read this and needs help fighting Rayquaza.

I beat Rayquaza with a level 22 Charmander and a level 21 Pikachu.

I am the type who wishes to finish the game faster, so I try to avoid wild battles as far as possible and this explains the low levels.

Okay, tips on how to battle:
1) There are certain moves I used that are vital, not only to fighting Rayquaza, but also to any other boss. The most important move I used was Attract. This infatuated the foe and gives me time to attack Rayquaza. I taught Attract to Charmander although Charizard doesn't seem to be a guy who bothers to learn it. For my Pikachu, although Thunder Wave doesn't seem to be a useful move, I always used it for boss battles. In this case, I infatuated and paralyzed Rayquaza so it can't even attack, giving me enough time to pin it down. You can see, my battle style is to inflict status conditions, and I use this strategy for any other Pokémon game.

2) Make use of the tactics. Constantly switching tactics is a good strategy as well.

3) I switched the moves of each Pokémon I use to battle. This way, you don't waste rounds to use unnecessary moves as tine can be an important factor.

That's all, and I hope this helps! :)
