 Need help picking a tank

I am about to start over on my Pokemon Emerald, just sent most good pokemon to Pal Park, and I realized that in every single pokemon game that I have played my team has been entirely sweepers. This time I want to try to get at least one, max two, tanks on my team just so I can see how they play and I have no idea where to start. The only one that comes to mind is gravler, I only have FireRed so I can't trade until past Elite Four, but I have a feeling that there are better choices. Also, the earlier in the game whichever pokemon is suggested, the better but it will not be a deciding factor. I will build my team based on which tanks I choose so that I don't accidentally eliminate a really good tank because I choose a certain starter, I like all three. Thanks for your time/input.

How about {slaking}? It's one of my personal favorites. Plus, you can get Slakoth early on too. On the turn of its Truant ability, heal another team member so the turn isn't wasted

I would suggest you get either a {swalot} or a {hariyama}? Both have decent moves and Hariyama goes up to 100+ hp at about lvl 24 (where Makuhita acctually evolves). And Swalot has some good stat pounders like Yawn as soon as you catch Gulpin; with the added poison bonus and some heavy hitters like Body Slam.

Good luck and have fun with your new Pokemon choices (:

Approach a moderator to re-open this thread if you need further opinions, but I'll lock this for now since you have already made a decision.
