First time playthrough as well

I think your team is pretty good but I would recommend you to get a grass type.I used a sceptile to go through the elite four and it’s was really good.Try using a sceptile and make sure to have leaf storm on it.My sceptile went first most of the time and one shotted many Pokémon.It also clutched up a lot.

On Gengar, run Taunt over Energy Ball and probably LO. Timid Nature.

D. Garde needs Scarf, and Moonblast and Focus Miss should be the last moves.

D. Venu should Mega, and Shadow Ball over Leech Seed, this thing is an unstoppable beast. It can potentially sweep the E4.

Garchomp is good nature wise, though if you want SR, the best set is probably EdgeQuake and SD.

Blaziken is good, I would run LO, SD, Blaze Kick/Flare Blitz, HJK, EQ. That gives it good coverage.

Sine Metagross is out, I would run D. Haxorus, Banded with Aqua Jet, Iron Head, EQ, and coverage.

Gyarados is a must if you have troubles, I used one on my team and it ably dealt with the e4 and champion, though it can’t really sweep everything, it is still a tremendous boost to my team.

My Gyarados.
Gyarados - Item: Mystic Water - Nature: Calm - Ability: Intimidate/Moxie
Moveset: Waterfall/Custom Move [Grass]/Taunt/Dragon Dance

Taun/Waterfall 1v6’d Kyla and Eduard, though against Yuki and London it was alright, but when it went against Reurka it was a blast.


Scizor and Both Excadrill variants work well too.
