Well, you should first decide what Type of Pokemon Team you would like. There are many Types of Pokemon Teams (Offensive, Defensive, and Balanced).

Offensive Teams consist of Pokemon with High Speed Stats and High Attack/Speical Attack Stats. These Types of Teams try to hit as hard as they can and as fast as they can. Pokemon on these Types of Teams include Zoroark and Garchomp. I like this Type of Pokemon Team the best.

Defensive Teams consists of Pokemon with High Defense/Special Defense Stats. These Types of Teams try to slowly defeat the other Pokemon by using moves such as Toxic and/or Leech Seed. Pokemon on these Types of Teams include Dusknoir and Ferrothorn.

Balanced Teams consist of Defensive Pokemon, Offensive Pokemon, Healing Pokemon, and/or Physical Tanks. Healing Pokemon are Pokemon that can heal other Pokemon on there team with moves such as Wish and/or Heal Bell. Physical Tank Pokemon are Pokemon like Snorlax.

After you decide what Type of Pokemon Team you want, you can start researching Pokemon to have on your Team. I would like to advise you that some Legendary Pokemon aren't allowed in Competitive Play.

Hope this helps!

I would think a Healing Pokemon, a Physical Tank Pokemon, three Offensive Pokemon, and a Defensive Pokemon would be a good Balanced Team.

After you decide what Pokemon to use, check out the Pokemon Teams on this site. You can find out what other people are doing with the same Pokemon. You can also check out the Pokemon is the Pokedex on this site. Many people tell what they do with their Pokemon.

You can also find recommended Movesets on
