Question for Pokemon FireRed

Is this a good team to face the elite four with? If not, then give me some tips on how to upgrade the team, train the team, or possibly change the team. If I should change the attacks of Pokemon then plz tell me.
Blastoise lvl.51 moves: Double edge, surf, bite, hydro cannon
Dragonite lvl.56 moves: thunder, ice beam, hyper beam, water pulse
Pidgeot lvl.52 moves: Fly, wing attack, feather dance, quick attack
Moltres lvl.53 moves: Fly, flamethrower, fire blast, agility
Vileplume lvl.50 moves: Petal dance, cut giga drain, solar beam
Mr.Mime lvl.51 moves: Psychic, psybeam, shock wave, magical leaf
I was thinking about training my raichu that knows thunderbolt, quick attack, thunder and rest, should I? If so who should I take out of my party?

I know this question is long but if you could answer a majority of it that would be great, thanx!!!

To get the best results, please go to the Pokémon Team Rating Forum and get your team rated there, but I can make my own really short.

Your Blastoise is pretty bad because he's going to be abusing the Recoil, he has Hydro Cannon, which is a free turn for your opponent to set up. It also has two Water moves which destroy his awesome movepool.

Your Dragonite is all special besides Hyper Beam (it's going to be Special in Diamond and Pearl though) so that deletes his awesome attacking ability.

Your Pidgeot has two flying moves and not a good Normal move to take care of his STAB.

Moltres is the worst Ledgendary Bird.

Vileplum can't take advantage of it's Ability or Solarbeam either.

Mr.Mime has a bad base of Special Attack if you're bent on keeping it. Starmie is a better choice for it in Game.

Moltres: Flamethrower/Heat Wave, Agility, Fly and Endure
Vilueplume: Ditch this crap Pokemon for Zapdos
Zapdos: ThunderBolt,Drill Peck,Agility, Thunder/Light Screen

You should do pretty alright with your team. Try and give your Pokemon a moveset that has no more than one or two moves that have th same type. Take out your Pidgeot for your Raichu and teach it Mega Punch in place of Thunder.

Well, it may win in the Elite Four, but here's some suggestions:

Blastoise: Give him Ice Beam an' Earthquake. Get rid of Hydro Cannon an' Bite. If you already used EQ an' can't get another give 'im Brick Break. Hydro Cannon isn't good except for quick things. You'd suffer in the Elite 4 with it.

Dragonite: Horrid. Here's a better moveset- Dragon Claw, Aerial Ace, Thunderbolt or Ice Beam, EQ if you can, if not keep the one from what I told you before or use Return.

Pidgeot: He can't really get so good... I'd trade him out for a better flyer. Dodrio maybe... Even Skarmory.

Moltres: Give 'im this- Flamethrower, Toxic, Aerial Ace (preferred) or Fly, an' some normal move preferably Return. Worst legendary bird IMO.

Vileplume: Give 'im this- Sludge Bomb, Sunny Day, Solar Beam, Moonlight.

Mimey: Another set for him- Calm Mind, Psychic, Fire Punch/ Ice Punch, an' Thunderbolt.

I don't like Raichu, but he might be better than Pidgeot for you. If you take him in, give it this set- Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Substitute/ Secret Power/ Return, an' Focus Punch/ Iron Tail (if you picked Sub, go FP here).

Looks like a fine team to face the Elite Four.
