    Hi! I've been meaning to seek help about my in-game team for quite a while already. I'm done with the Elite Four and am currently working on conquering Black Tower.

    Please note that HM moves have been kept for the sole purpose of not having to re-teach them to the 'mons. I'm willing to replace them, though, or just breed my current 'mons to get a better moveset.

    Lucario @ Soul Dew
    Inner Focus
    - Aura Sphere
    - Dragon Pulse
    - Dark Pulse
    - Strength

    Azumarill @ Mystic Water
    Huge Power
    - Surf
    - Waterfall
    - Ice Punch
    - Bulldoze

    Magnezone @ Magnet/Metal Coat
    - Thunderbolt
    - Flash Cannon
    - Volt Switch
    - Magnet Rise

    Emboar @ Leftovers
    - Flare Blitz
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Slide
    - Arm Thrust (still trying to get Brick Break)

    Leavanny @ Miracle Seed
    - Leaf Blade
    - X-Scissor
    - Shadow Claw
    - Cut

    Swoobat @ Scope Lens
    - Psychic
    - Fly
    - Air Slash
    - Calm Mind

    I'm currently training a Whimsicott (Jolly/Prankster), Deerling (the one from the weather institute), an Archen (Rash), and a Yanma (Serious/Speed Boost). Would any of these be good replacements for the Pokemon above? Also, would this team or at least some members of it be okay to use for competitive battling? Just wondering. :)

    Thank you!

    Whimsicott is OK if you keep in mind it can only annoy stuff to death with prankster Sub, Leech Seed, Stun Spore, etc. and usually the only attacking move they carry is U-Turn, competitively. It's not the best thing ever ingame. Deerling can't really abuse Serene Grace, you're better off catching one in the wild with Sap Sipper or Chlorophyl. Archeops is ok as a glass cannon, Rash is not the worst nature, you can run a mixed set. Yanmega is pretty powerful, though it needs something like Hidden Power Ground to be used on competitive teams due to the lack of coverage.
    the first half of your team is alright with proper EVs natures and movesets for a competitive team. Rest should be replaced with better options.
    ingame it's pretty solid, swoobat is bad but still somewhat usable if you like it. Just get an HM slave, stuff like Fly on it or Surf on Azumarill are basically a wasted moveslot.

    Thanks for the feedback, edonub! I'll make sure to keep these things in mind when fixing my team :)
