Sturdy and Scientifical-HG team

Commander L. Halsti

Toxin Squad Cmdr.
This is something planned for when I finish the game for the first time. I know there's 7 Pokemon here, but this is usual for me, using 7. I don't care about Natures, and I don't do real EV training, although I do try to improve a stat if I deem it's too low. I need help on moves and items, to make my team as durable as it could be, so, favor defensive suggestions, please. Also, don't suggest breed-only moves, and if you suggest moves that can be obtained after the E4 is defeated, please suggest a substitute to use until then.

Parasect with Silver Powder
Ability:Dry Skin or Effect Spore(suggestion needed)
Spore
Stun Spore
X-Scissor
Seed Bomb( I need a STAB to use until I can get access to this)
Ninetales with Charcoal
Ability:Flash Fire
Flamethrower
Will-O-Wisp
Solar Beam(I don't want to breed for Energy Ball)
Sunny Day/Pain Split(can't decide)
Slowking with Leftovers
Ability:Own Tempo(though Oblivious isn't bad either)
Surf
Psychic
Yawn
Curse(will become Iron Defense when possible)
Nidoqueen with Poison Barb
Ability:poison Point
Poison Jab
Earthquake
Toxic Spikes
?
Dewgong with Mystic Water
Ability:Hydration
Waterfall
Ice Beam
Rest
Toxic
Skarmory with Shell Bell
Ability:Keen Eye
Fly(don't change this)
Steel Wing
Spikes
Roost?(it can put me in problems when losing the Flying type, any other options?)
Machamp with Muscle Band
Ability:No Guard
Dynamic Punch
Payback
Bulk Up
Rock Slide(what to do before I get it?)

Staring at my phone
@ Peacemaker- Dewgong can't learn Calm Mind.

@ OP- Since moves like (Toxic)Spikes are pretty
useless in-game, try Agility or Swords Dance on
Skarm, and maybe Avalance and Thunderbolt for
Nidoqueen.

I would need to get multiple copies of Toxic to use it on several Pokemon. I didn't even find one yet, I'm in Cerulean. I'd have to beg people to give me one or two, when I start with this team. And a lot of these moves mean I have to do the Battle Frontier, which I couldn't do well in. A bit of On Slowking, I wish to have a move to boost defense, that's why Curse. Waterfall and many other HM-s are too good to be wasted on an HM slave. Another copy of Ice Beam requires me to do the Voltorb Flip which is tedious. If this is emulator, I'd use cheats, but on a real DS it cannot be done. So, I have to make do with the options I have.
