For the main game, usually, I use just the in-game traded and gift Pokemon. Then in the post game train those that interest me even if they're not recommended for competitive play.

Clamer of now Dunsparce. Also claims Thousand Arrows, most likely Zygarde's move.
Hmm... decisions, decisions, decisions. It really depends on if certain Mons will be available in main game or post game. But so far, I've decided to use only Hoenn Mons in the first playthrough. This is what I have so far (note that I'm getting both versions, as per usual, so I may swap things around here and there).
Alpha Sapphire (primary version)
Ludicolo/Roselia (depending on certain elements, such as Roserade in main game)
Flier (debating between Swellow, Flygon, or Altaria)
Sharpedo/Walrein (depends on my needs)
Flier (same situation as Alpha Sapphire)
Roselia/Tropius (similar situation as above)
Note that these teams are pending, as there are so many good Hoenn Pokemon to choose from. So I may change things around when we get more info.

Since I'm going to get both games, I'm going to make two teams.
My OR team:
My AS team:
I'm mostly set on my OR team, but not so much on my AS team. I am considering trading over a Treecko from my X version to raise there, but I'm not quite sure about that. I'm leading more towards using Altaria over Flygon since I will be starting out with a Mudkip in that game either way. I'd kind of like to raise another Absol, but I'd also like to try raising a Medicham. Raising another Aggron would be good, but I'd like to have a Fire type Pokemon on my team. Both teams might change as we learn more about the games, but I do want to include both Pokemon I've raised in my original R/S/E, as well as some new ones. I had a Blaziken, Mightyena and Manetric in Ruby, a Swampert, Aggron in Sapphire and a Gardevoir and Salamence in Emerald. So, I'd like to have at some some of the Pokemon I've trained before, along with a few new ones.
Not sure yet, but right now I'm thinking:
Swampert (Bred from my original 2003 starter)
Swellow/Skarmory (probably switch to Salamence later in game if using Swellow)
My main considerations at the moment for the remaining spots are: Manectric, Roserade (if available pre-E4), Swalot, Seviper, Cacturne, Sableye, Banette, Dusclops/Dusknoir (if available pre-E4), Absol, Froslass (if available pre-E4), Glalie, Armaldo, Cradily, and Aggron.
Gonna probably try to use only Hoenn Pokemon (including evolutions of Hoenn Pokemon introduced in Gen IV like Roserade if they're available in the main game, which I hope they are) besides the possibility of Skarmory.
For Omega Ruby (tentative and at a later date):
Considering: Sceptile (assuming I don't get one in AS), Walrein/other good water types, Torkoal/Camerupt, Flygon, Skarmory/Mawile, Medicham/Gallade, Pokemon I considered but didn't use in AS (seen above), and probably a few others.

I will be your shield, so let me protect you.
If I could remember my original Sapphire team better, I would actively try to recreate it, but alas
But I will definitely get Mudkip as a starter, and I think I will rotate my team, using favourites so:
I realise I could probably have some better type coverage, but these are simply Pokémon I predict I will definitely use at some point in the game
Aside from Swampert, I have no idea
I'll just see what interesting Pokémon I encounter I guess
No one can destroy the Metal
Gallade* (I have an UT Shiny male Ralts ready that I'll send over)
Ludicolo (I like it, and both Grass/Water, very handy)
The last three I just really like. Well, this is my tentative team, but it might all change once we get more info about availability and the possibility of an expanded dex.
