Is this good? I based it off of my team from Soul Silver, but I'm willing to change it if needed.

What Pokemon, moves, or abilities are you not allowed to use?
Is this ingame or competitive? If this is Gen 6 and above, Mega Pidgeot would be really good over the regular Pidgeot. If this is a standard Monotype format, then Lugia would be banned.
It's competitive, but I always go on "anything goes", so no pokemon, items, or moves are not allowed. I might try Mega Pidgeot. Is there any moveset changes that would be good to change with going Mega?
If it's anything goes, a lot of these pokemon are outclassed by others.

Mega Pidgeot's staple moves are Hurricane and Heat Wave, and from there you could try options like Roost, U-Turn, Tailwind, or Substitute. Put those Attack EVs into Special Attack EVs.
Why are you not using a full team of box art legendaries? I'm pretty sure the only good non-legendary flying Pokemon are Skarmory, Vivillon, and Celesteela.
This is an awful team in AG for the reasons sumwun has implied. In competitive play, you need to plan your team with a particular game mode in mind. You need to build around the meta to counter other people's strategies. You can't just assimilate an in-game team to whichever competitive format and expect it to work (especially not a monotype one, which is a blatant handicap).
I think togekiss can learn thunderbolt so use that and also get something that's taking normal damage from electric and rock moves

I've been training flying-types, in particular bird Pokémon, and imo these are the 6 best in order from worst to best:
-Mega Pidgeot

Swellow and Honchkrow can be fun too. Decidueye is not a flying-type but it is a bird and isn't a bad Pokémon either. Another great flying-type that is not a bird is Crobat.
Have fun making your team and if you have more questions then I'd be happy to help you with them.

How are any of these better than Ho-Oh, Lugia, or Yveltal?
I should've mentioned it but I hate using legendaries.
The ones you named are without doubt better.
Why are you rating Anything Goes teams when you hate legendaries?
Because the topic starter didn't include any legendaries either which most likely means he/she doesn't want to use them. Besides some of us are up for a challenge while using Pokémon we personally like a lot (myself included).
I'm only hear to help and there's no need for you to speak for him/her. Too many times I see you acting like you're the only person here with a valid opinion. It's getting quite annoying to be honest...
The original team has a Lugia, so I don't think its owner hates legendaries. Also, why do you think the 6 Pokemon in your list are the 6 best non-legendaries?
That's true, I forgot he had a Lugia in there.
I'm not saying these are the best non-legendaries, but from my experienced they are the best non-legendary bird (which consist of flying-types) Pokémon. I've used them many times and they do quite well online.
