    1.) Replace Cut with Toxic.
    2.) Wild Charge and Spark is redundant. Replace Spark with Thunderbolt for a STAB non-contact move.
    3.) I'd go for Aura Sphere instead of Bounce once you reach the right level to learn it.

    5.) I'd replace Bulldoze with Stone Edge.
    6.) Replace Fly with Hurricane.

    1: Not a bad idea.
    2. No way. Zebstrika has way better attack than sp. attack. Thunderbolt would be terrible on it.
    3. Again, no way. Mienshao has much better attack.
    4. Seriously? Reshiram has way WAY better sp. attack than attack. The only reason I have Strength is so I can get to certain places, but I do plan to replace it.
    5. Not a bad idea.
    6. Um, no. I need Fly to get around and it's a pretty strong move anyway. Plus, my Swanna's attack is higher than its sp. attack.

    Thanks for the input, I'll look for Stone Edge and Toxic. :]

    2.) I did fairly well with a Zebstrika running a similar set to yours (Thudnerbolt instead of Spark), despite the nearly 90 point difference in Attack and Sp. Attack. I guess the 143 STAB base power won out. Either way, Return or Giga Impact could work as substitutes
    3.) An always hitting attack with a STAB total of 135 sounds quite useful to me. Alternately, give it Stone Edge to cover for its flying type weakness.
    4.) Draco Meteor is a special attack. Which is why I suggested dumping Strength (physical) for it.
    6.) Unable to comment.

    2. Well, my Zebstrika's stats are probably not the same as yours. xP
    3. I guess so.
    4. Really? I dunno why I thought it was a physical attack. xP

    HiJumpKick is much better than Brick Break in terms of power, so ditch that for either Rock Slide (Stone Edge later on) or Dig. Now, Chip Away seems OK, but Return is probably better, given at that level the thing should love you to death.

    Archeops Lv.39
    Acrobatics
    Crunch
    Bulldoze
    Fly

    Wut? Fly isn't needed, since Acrobatics+Flying Gem+Not in Defeatist range=OW F--K!! Therefore, ditch it for Rock Slide (again, Stone Edge later). The thing already has good enough speed, so Bulldoze should be replaced with Return (again, it probably loves you a LOT). Oh, and assuming your Stoutland has Sand Rush, I suggest running Sandstorm on Archeops.

    Whimsicott Lv.39
    Energy Ball
    Cotton Guard
    Stun Spore
    Giga Drain

    Giga Drain is is slightly less powerful than Energy Ball, but it's more useful since it can replenish H.P. Now, assuming your Whimsicott has Prankster, I'd replace E. Ball with either Tailwind or Toxic. If, however, it's got Infiltrator, use Hidden Power and/or Shadow Ball. Later on in life, you can use Hurricane on either set.

    Stoutland Lv.39 (Want to Replace)
    Aerial Ace
    Crunch
    Take Down
    Thunder Fang

    I dunno, Stoutland seems OK. Return is probably much stronger than Take Down, and Thunderfang is a bit weak. Go with Dig on that end. Once you get to the E4, replace Aerial Ace with Wild Charge.

    Samurott Lv.39
    Aerial Ace
    Razor Shell
    Surf
    X-Scissor

    Go get a Heart Scale and teach it Megahorn, it hurts. Now, Aerial Ace is weak, and you already have Surf, so ditch those first two moves for Revenge, Grass Knot, and/or Ice Beam (the latter later on).

    Excadrill Lv.40
    X-Scissor
    Rock Slide
    Earthquake
    Hone Claws

    Not much to fix, really. Seems OK. I suppose Swords Dance could replace Hone Claws later on, but that's about it.

    only to pinwheel forest on one of my runs through black:

    Pansage: 18
    Fury Swipes
    Work Up
    Leech Seed
    Vine Whip

    Pidove: 20
    Gust
    Air Cutter
    Roost
    Quick Attack

    Pignite: 22
    Tackle
    Flame Charge
    Ember
    Arm Thrust

    Planning on getting Jellicent, Garbodor, and Scrafty. <--- love that guy would get Darmanitan if I didn't have Pignite. just trying out things for now, seeing for myself how good the pokemon are.

    Edit: may replace Garbodor with Beheeyem. not much I can do with my pokemon's move set, but if a different pokemon works better with my team, please say so.

    Right now, level him up once so he can learn Bite over either Fury Swipes or Leech Seed. Once he gets to Lv. 22, teach him Seed Bomb over Vine Whip.

    Pidove: 20
    Gust
    Air Cutter
    Roost
    Quick Attack
    Pidove doesn't really have a good movepool right now, what with his best move being held back by the creature's low base Sp. Atk. If you have the TM for Return, use over Gust. I suppose you could use Work Up on him, too.

    Pignite: 22
    Tackle
    Flame Charge
    Ember
    Arm Thrust
    In one level, your Pignite will learn Rollout. Replace Ember with that. Later on, replace Tackle with Take Down.

    Planning on getting Jellicent, Garbodor, and Scrafty. <--- love that guy would get Darmanitan if I didn't have Pignite. just trying out things for now, seeing for myself how good the pokemon are.


    Edit: may replace Garbodor with Beheeyem. not much I can do with my pokemon's move set, but if a different pokemon works better with my team, please say so.
    For now, I think a Lillipup/Herdier would suit your team well, since it learns Take Down at such a low level. Woobat might also come in handy with Gust and Confusion.

    Later on, Jellicent would be a good teamate (with Hex, Will-o-Wisp, and Surf), as would Galvantula (long as it has Compundeyes, use Thunder, if not, Discharge or T-Bolt). If you wanna use Beheeyem, give it Thunderbolt/Charge Beam and/or Energy Ball. With Scrafty, make sure it has HiJumpKick, not just Jump Kick. Payback would also work, since his spped is quite low.
    You wanted comments? They're in bold.

    If I wanted a grass type, but already have a fighting type on my team, would Virizion or Leavanny be better?

    Virizion is difficult to get and you should leave it for post game,so that you can keep soft resetting till you get an hp ice virizion for wifi battling.

    I know, but I need to balance out other weaknesses, and a grass type does it best.
