Unless you're willing to take on Ferroseed/Ferrothorn, Sawsbuck is your best bet. Remember it's Normal/Grass as well, so in exchange for a small Fighting weakness, it gets a Ghost immunity and STAB Return!

Let's be fair, Venusaur doesn't use Fighting moves, doesn't have any immunities, is slower and, most importantly, can't be obtained without trading before the E4. Plus the SpAtk is the same as Sawsbuck's Atk, so same diff there really. Also, Megahorn baby!
The main problem with the Sawsbuck is that you end up relying on Horn Leech as the Grass move, since it's physical, and that has shag all PP. But teach it Double Edge and no one cares anymore.

Cool, gonna stick with Deerling so. Also, after flirting briefly with an Emolga, finally replaced Blitzle with a Joltik, as it is about 6 times cooler.

Not as fast or stong, but there's a lot to be said for a good Bug. Good call.

Actually Galvantula has equal or better stats in everything compared to Emolga! +15HP, +22SpAtk, and +5 Speed!

I was comparing it to Zebstrika SpAtk of 97 instead of Atk 100, Spd 108 instead of Spd 116. Plus it suffers by -3 Def and SpDef and -5 in Hp.

All fairly minor differences, offset by the added ability to use Bug moves IMO. Matter of personal choice more than anything else.

Zekrom lv 61
Haxorus lv 61
Excadrill lv 61
Chandelure lv 61
Braviary lv 61
Hydregion lv 64

Tell ya something, Dark Pulse not being a TM anymore is sickening. Best STAB dark attack Hydregion can learn and it's an absolute nightmare to teach to it.

My group are:

Serperior (lvl 80)
Simipour (lvl 75)
Stoutland (lvl 75)
Zebstrika (lvl 75)

Those four have stood me well and been in my party for the duration. My other two spots are currently filled by a level 50 Wigglytuff that I use to help me catch pokemon with its 'sing' ability (which is quite rubbish since it doesn't always work) and I also caught that great Kyurem pokemon which I was pleased to learn can be taught how to fly, so I've replaced Reshiram with that.

Currently

Samurott Lvl 72
Lilligant Lvl 70
Archeops Lvl 70
Mienshao Lvl 70
Chandelure Lvl 70
Krookodile Lvl 70

MVPs are Archeops (absolute monster) and Mienshao (hits hard and fast). Lilligant is okay for Sleep Powder but lacks good attacks besides Petal Dance, although the interaction with Own Tempo is nice. Everyone else is a little meh.

Just beat the 8th gym. Have a nice roster of 7, all around level 45:

Mijumaru the Samurott
Fraxure the... Fraxure
Aragog the Galvantula
Brock the Gigalith
Trevor the Krookodile
Lucy the Sawsbuck (looking resplendent in her new winter wardrobe)
Filius the Lampent (currently my weakest, but it just learned shadow ball so should be a bit more useful)

I like my team

Serperior (lv36)
Excadrill (lv34, I think)
Gigalith (lv36)
Unfezant (lv33)

I'm on Route 10 just past the 8th gym. I keep getting bored and changing up half my team.

I've stuck with Emboar lv.51, Stoutland 45, and Cinccino 46. I've recently had a Swanna, Cubchoo, Boldore, Lilligant, Zebstrika, Mienfoo, and Unfezant.

Too many of the badass Pokémons.
