All a matter of opinion and what you as the player are best fit for using. I would say Dragon types are normally the best, though I could be wrong seeing as I don't know what type you prefer.

Ho-oh(because it's in Heart Gold version)

The legendaries,the Red Gyarados and two of Eve's(a nickname for Eevee)evolutions are so great,but when they are level 100,90 or something I think they don't obey!Sorry.:(

Charizard-if you can get, if not Arcanine


Tyranitar should be used last or as just a "mine sweeper"/ killing an entire team considering that his sandstorm ability hurts bascially your entire team, but if you get a tyrnaitar by jhoto you should OWN, same with a dragonite

Magnesium I choose because well because grass type Pokemon that are good are hard to come bye-or go with an electric, while fire in typholsion you can find a few VERY good/equal of ability type guys and gyrados is easily, IMO, as good if not better then feraligatr, so that leaves you with magnesium

If you can't get a aracnine-because you use soul silver, you can originally pick typholsion and then get an electric-maybe a pikachu with I think a "LIGHT BALL" which makes it's special attack/lightning attacks alot stronger then any raichu^^-light ball only effects pickachu, I think they wanted to find a way to explain ash's pickahu bein so strong, so it apparently has a light ball^^

Tyranitar-Thunder punch, Crunch, Earthquake, Rockslide
Skarmory-Spikes, Toxic, Ariel ace/Pluck, Steelwing/Protect
Suicune-Mirror Coat, Reflect, Surf, Ice Beam
Umbreon-Curse, Crunch, Moonlight/Confuseray, Fire Fang
Jolteon-Thunderbolt, Shockwave, Thunderwave, Doublekick
Weavile-Nightslash, Icepunch, Faintattack, Shadowclaw

With this team and their moves thay cover all of their weaknesses and have moves to beat every type besides normal types

There is no 'best team'. It is your game, and it is up to you how you play it. You can go through the game with whichever team you want, but I'll give you some good Pokemon to start with. This is not a 'You should totally use this' type of thing, these are just suggestions:

Typhlosion/Feraligatr/Meganium - Your starter. Choose whichever you like, they're all good.
Slowbro- Water and pyschic moves + bulk make this a good Pokemon. You can catch them at Slowpoke Well.
Lapras- Another water Pokemon with great HP and special attack. You can catch it on a Friday in Union Cave, once you have surf.
Eeveelutions - I'm saying eeveelutions because all of them are awesome. Choose one depending on your team to cover weaknesses. If you want, you could breed the Eevee you recieve to get more so that you can have more than one Eeveelution. You recieve Eevee from Bill in Goldenrod City.
Heracross/Scizor- Both really good Pokemon, either will work, just note Scizor will require trade. You can catch Heracross by headbutting trees in Azalea Town, and Scyther in the bug catching contests.
Alakazam/Gengar - They require trade to evolve, but they're both equally good. They both help for Morty, if you can get one before then. You can catch Gastly in Sprout Tower, which makes it a great early Pokemon. I believe you can get an Abra from the game corner type thing in Goldenrod as a prize.
Dragonite - You'll be waiting a long time to get this Pokemon, but it's worth it. It's a really strong Pokemon with great stats. You can get Dratini/Dragonair in Dragon's Den.
Togetic/Togekiss - With Serene Grace, these Pokemon are great additions to your team. You will have to wait til after the Elite Four to get a shiny stone to evolve it though. You recieve a Togepi from an egg you get in Violet City.
Ampharos - One of the only electric types in the game, and obtained really early, Ampharos is a really useful Pokemon. You get catch Mareep just outside Violet City.

Well, these are some reccomended Pokemon to get you started. Remember, you can beat the game with just about any team you want. Yes, if you have enough skill, it is possible to beat the game with six Magikarps.

I know this is really late! I wrote this for people who came to this question looking for help.

and something to replace th type of tarter you didn't pick out f those two at the top. water/grass pokemon. Maybe if its megaineum I would get the red garadoes, and if its fearaligater, I would probably trade myself a turtwig... I like turtwigs :D

These aren't in order
Meganium- not the fire type nor water coz you can get a good substitute of those pokemons
Arcanine/Flareon- your fire type, good subs for typhlosion but flareon idk if it's gud
Lapras/Slowbro- both great poke on with high hp/endurance, lapras as your dragon-sweeper, slowbro for physical(ithink) wall and psychic moves
Ampharos- like said above/below, one of the only electric types, beside jolteon
Pidgeot/Fearow/Crobat- good flying types
Blissey(idk if it will appear in that game)/Dragonite- blissey as you're special wall(probably the best one), dragonite as your sweeper

I aint gud, these are based on experiences

I agree with the person who said "there's no best team" just pick Pokemon you really like. But my honest opinion if you have to use legendaries to beat the game how is that any fun it's supposed to be challenging, this is my team I am currently working on:
Feraligatr- Adamant + sp defense
Ice punch, Dragon dance, Aqua tail, Crunch
Houndoom- Modest + speed
Sunny day, Solar beam, Flamethrower, Dark pulse
Donphan- Impish + sp defense
Earthquake, Fire fang, Giga impact, ether Rock slide or Stone edge
Skarmory- Jolly + speed/attack
Whirlwind, Brave bird, Spikes, Steel wing
Heracross- Adamant + defense
Close combat, Megahorn, Night slash, Aerial ace
Granbull-Jolly + anything but sp attack
Fire punch, Crunch, Super fang, and haven't figured out the last move
Keep in mind this is for competitive game play to feel free to add suggestions on the moves
