[QUOTE=tk36477;2863280]gyarados is good because its part flying type[QUOTE]
the fact that gyrados is a part flying type make it vulnerable to most special sweepers, as they're generally psychic, electric, or occasionally ghost types, and just about all pokemon in those types can learn a move like thunderbolt or thunder. gyarados may be able to use earthquake, but since it is so vulnerable to a special sweeper that means to be effective you would need to give it the focus sash/band. Frankly there are a lot better item combos for gyarados than that.
By the way, that Gengar is really just in the role of a second special sweeper. Not that there is really anything wrong with that, Gengar might be a bit better than Alakazam due to it having complete immunity from normal and ground type moves. However, not doubling up on roles (especially when you already have a mixed sweeper) is probably the best idea. You should choose one or the other.
And Pichu boy, you may not have noticed but he mentioned he had not played pokemon in half a decade. He might not understand about EV's and other competitive stuff yet.
