Pokémon Rate My Team

Hi there,

-IN SHORT: I need some help with forming the ultimate gen 3 pokemon team

-PURPOSE: I am in a bet with some friends: next month (at the start of our next year of univ) we're gonna do a pokémon battle, 3rd generation.
The winner gets eternal glory, free beer and can name him/herself the true 'pokémon master'.

Ofcourse I'd like the best team for this, so I'll need your help.

-NOTES:
Know that we are playing oldschool, with this i mean gameboy advance with no ability to trade between other generations (we can however trade within the same gen so ex. a machoke or kingdra are still available).
Also i wasted my earthquake, so i don't have the tm anymore for any moveset (i know, stupid).
Toxic is also wasted on my shuckle.
The battle is already next month so I don't have enough time to evolve pokémon with a very slow growth rate.
One of my friends has an Alakazam and Aggron, and i don't want the same pokémons.
No legendaries
*I'm playing with emerald

I've done some research but I just can't decide wich pokémons are best to have.

-TO THE POINT:
These are in my 'certainly yes' team:
Blaziken: Fight/fire -- starter pokemon and just a beast
Kingdra: Dragon/water -- i love it's resistances to almost all types
* Metagross: Steel/psy -- great stats and moveset

These are in my 'maybe yes' team:
Milotic: Water -- i know, kingdra is already a water type, but still milotic has some pretty great stats imo
Gardevoir: Psychic -- here again, metagross is already psy but he is mainly atk. trained so he doesn't do much dmg with his psychic moves
Vileplume: Grass/poison -- the combination of sunny day+ solarbeam is real strong if he can survive it, the downside is that grass types are overall pretty weak since they have a lot of weaknesses
Slaking: Normal -- he has great stats but imo kind of a dull pokémon to play with
Salamence: Dragon/fly -- has great stats again but whenever i play him he always dissapoints me damage-wise (i feel like the dragon type is a good defensive type but kinda fails attack-wise and 'flying' doesn't do it for me either)
Magneton: Electric/steel -- has a lot of resistances and great sp.atk although the only sp.atks he can do are of the electric type, so i'm having difficulties with selecting a movepool

I'm open to any suggestions, but please keep the 'notes' from above in mind.

MASSIVE THANKS <33

Singles or doubles? You need to include information on items, abilities, EVs, natures, and moves.
I'm so sorry, I'm only a beginner in that kind of stuff. I hope I'll do it right now.
Please know though that it's only a battle between friends, nevertheless i really want to win it. But as for more complex game mechanics such as EV training, i don't think they will do that.

-It's a single battle
- I haven't found out about EV training until later in the game when my 3 top pokemon (blaziken, seadra- will be evolved to kingdra, metagross) were already lvl 90-80, so I didn't look out for it at all. I know it's not ideal and I'm very sorry if this bothers more experienced trainers. As for the pokémons in the suggestions, those aren't that high of a lvl so i can easily restart with those to train them properly.

*Blaziken
abilitiy: blaze
nature: quirky
item: charcoal
Flamethrower
Blaze kick
Dig
Double kick

*Seadra/Kindra (soon to be a kingdra before we will start the battle, we're trading for evolutions)
ability: currently poison point, but will change into swift swim
nature: brave (not the best, but i got it from trading the bagon cause i wanted the exp. boost)
item: mystic water
Ice beam
Surf
Hydro pump
Hyper beam
--> I'll change one of those to rain dance to be compatible with swift swim?

*Metagross
ability: clear body
nature: docile
item: leftovers
Meteor mash
psychic
hyper beam
explosion

I know these have bad natures but i couldn't really select that since they all aren't obtained via capturing

----

For the other pokemon i don't know wich one to pick so i haven't built them properly yet. To spare time I wanted to wait for a response from you guys to start with a great team and then train onwards from there.

Vileplume: is built out though but not EV trained
nature: modest
ability: chlorophyll
item: idk what to pick
Sunny day
Solar beam
Sludge bomb
petal dance
