    My team so far is going to be
    Swampert
    Aggron
    Breloom
    Torkoal/Camerupt
    Duskclops/Sabeleye

    Any and all suggestions are welcome.

    For Camerupt and Torkoal, it depends if you want something offensive (Camerupt) or defensive (Torkoal). Camerupt's dual typing guves him a great move pool, and even though its typing does give it a 4x weakness to water, when ever are you going to send Camerupt against a water pokemon? So overall, I would choose Camerupt. As for Dusclops and Sableye, if I had to choose between them Dusclops, because Sableye is too fragile. However, you may want to consider Banette, which unlike Dusclops, has a strong attack but below decent defenses. Banette has a great attack stat which is great considering Shadow Ball was a physical move in Gen III. If you want to teach it special moves, use Calm Mind to boost their special attack stat up. So it becomes basically like Torkoal and Camerupt, defensive Dusclops or offensive Banette?

    Okay so I'm gonna choose Camerupt and Banette. I still need one last pokemon to complete my team any suggestions?

    This is just me but I always want a flying type on my team so I can fly from city to city but if you don't mind training a pokemon just before the elite four Salamence is a great choice. However, if you don't want to train a pokemon late game, here are some other options: Flygon, Skarmory, Crobat, or Xatu. Out of all those, I would choose Xatu, because you don't have a psychic pokemon on your team yet. One more tip, four of your pokemon have a 4x weakness to something, Swampert, (Grass) Aggron, (Fighting/Ground), Breloom, (Flying), and Canerupt (Water) be sure to be aware of these weaknesses

    Like Henraye, I would recommend Salamance. Hard to go wrong there plus you need a flyer. You could also use Altaria, Crobat, Flygon, Skarmory or Xatu if you don't feel like training something that late in the game. Of these, I'm partial to Flygon or Crobat for the speed, although you may want to TM moves to Crobat like Sludge Bomb or Steel Wing
