    Arlo ...and so on...

    Nice looking team....

    Ninetales seems fine.
    Dusclops - I'd maybe dump Night Shade, just because Shadow Punch is doing the same thing, and with a guaranteed hit. Actually though... I wonder which one does more damage? Dusclops doesn't have much for physical attack, so Night Shade might actually do more damage in the long run..... In either case though, I think I'd only keep one of them. Though what to replace it with.... You can always try Focus Punch, though it's a gamble. It's nice against normals (in-game, since they're generally too dumb to avoid using a normal attack), but it's always a gamble. Rest is always a solid choice, since it'll help it tank that much better.
    Xatu - I've just been working with a Xatu in Emerald. I've always wanted to use one seriously, but just hadn't spent much time with them before. The one thing I find sort of troubling is the lack of an immediate attack, so I can understand Psychic on there, though it makes Future Sight sort of redundant. But it doesn't have much of a movepool, so... I've been kicking around the idea of putting the two screens, Wish and Future Sight on mine and pseudopassing with it, but I find I actually use Fly a fair amount. And I can't quite bring myself to just pick one of the screens. Dunno.... I'll have to keep thinking about it.
    Rhydon - that's pretty much exactly the set I use on Rhydon. In FRLG, I prefer Rock Head with Double-Edge, but in Emerald, I'd go with either Strength or Return (actually, Return will do more damage, but if you need Strength for in-game, then that's fine).
    Absol - I'd swap Future Sight for Swords Dance, probably, though I haven't tried Future Sight in-game and I'm not quite sure how useful it might be, and Swords Dancing with something as fragile as Absol is a bit of a risk.
    Starmie - I assume you're going with Blizzard so that you don't have to shell out the money for two Ice Beam TMs? Other than that, it's fine. Even arguably with that it's fine - it's just that accuracy vs. power trade-off. I think all of those are about even in the long run, so it just comes down to personal preference. And yeah - Illuminate's a pretty sucky ability, but what can you do? I spent a couple of days Staryu hunting in my Emerald, and finally had to settle for one with only so-so stats, in part because I just refused to take one with Illuminate. Luckily I had a couple of pokes that got something out of the hundreds of Wailmers I had to kill along the way....

    The hold items seem fine, or at least within the limitations of what you can get and use in-game.
