I would take out Machoke and Sneasel, and put in an electric, like Luxray, and a grass type, like Roserade. A grass type would help against Bertha since she likes to use earthquake, which could knock out Empoleon in one hit. An electric type can easily beat Cynthia's Togekiss and Milotic.Also, you should level up all your Pokemon to around level 60.

You will get your face handed to you on a silver platter.

No offense to that, but train it your Pokemon a little higher.

Here's a couple of tips for the Elite Four.

1. Aaron - use Staraptor
2. Bertha - use Empoleon (Watch out for Earthquake though) or use Sneasel or/and Mamoswine (I'd use those)
3. Flint - use Empoleon
4. Lucian - You have no weaknesses to him
5. Cynthia - Use oall you've got.

I hope I helped!

Your movesets are terrible dude, try these.

Empoleon = flash cannon, surf, ice beam, and drill peck
Staraptor = aerial ace, close combat, brave bird, roost
Mamoswine = earthquake, stone edge, ice fang, your choice
Machoke(evolve if you can) = no idea, but level it up more
Sneasel(evolve it) = shadow claw, x-scissor, ice punch, your choice
Giratina = good enough

***level all Pokemon up to at least level 58 and you should do fine but give them better items.***

You may decide for the better to take out Sneasel and replace him/her with Roserade who will be effective against Bertha, the second one and a user of Ground-type Pokemon.
You may also decide to take out Machoke because he/she and Sneasel are at a very low level for the Elite 4 challenge as so is Mamoswine so you may decide on one of these decisions: 1) You could take out Machoke and replace him/her with an Electric-type Pokemon to wipe out Flint, the third one and a user of Fire-type Pokemon. 2) You could level up Mamoswine, Machoke and the Roserade you should replace Sneasel for the better.
I do not see the idea of letting Empoleon holding the Quick Claw. I would replace the Quick Claw with the Splash Plate or Wave Insence.
You may want to level up that Staraptor of yours about 3-5 levels.
Most of your Pokemon's PP on the moves are low, espicially Giratina's. I suggest you give the moves Ethers or Elixirs.
You may want to take out the Giratina's Ominous Wind or Shadow Force and replacing one of them with
Shadow Punch or Shadow Sneak. The one I would recommend more is Shadow Sneak but not against Lucian, the fourth one and a user of Psychic-types because they may know Swift.
Hope I helped!

Take my advice: level up your Pokemon to lvl.65. This will work.

P.S. You should take my advice because I went ahead and levelled my Empoleon to lvl.86 so you should take my advice on levelling them up.
