Legendary dogs or birds?

Which would be better in my team cuz Im trying to get 100 straight wins in the Battle Tower in Ruby.

Is Moltres a better choice than Entei or is Suicune better than Articuno?

Well Articuno also counts as flying, so he can get hurt with moves that are very effective to flying... It all depends on what pokemon your fighting. Suicune will be better for some fights, and Articuno will be better for others... same with {moltres} and {entei}

Well, in cases dogs are better than birds. The ones truly combat-worthy are Suicune, Zapdos, and possibly Articuno or Raikou, to a lesser degree. Suicune has multiple roles, all of which it does incredibly at - it's almost like a Snorlax. Moltres and Entei are wastes of your time.

It's still possible that Articuno would be dead by then.
Some people disdain that cheap combo, but as for myself I have no preference.

Fire Pokemon are weak to Water, Ground, and Rock. That's 3 weaknesses, and in the case of Moltres, Rock is a 2x weakness, so using AncientPower/Rock Slide against it is virtually Moltres's death sentence. (Ground, however, does not affect Moltres.)

Moltres is the only one with a double weakness in the whole set, and because his stats are also somewhat lackluster, he's not well worth it.

Because stats, learnsets, and the metagame are also important considerations.

For more information, look on the Psydex for the individual pokemon data or the main site for battle guides.

To beat Ruby BT?

First, you only use 3 pokemon. Second, the team you chose not only must be well rounded enough to take on the variety of pokemon you find in the higher levels of Ruby BT, it also must be able to overcome luck hax in some way - comps using OHKO or evasion boosts. (I mean well rounded not in types, but in battle roles. A physical sweeper, a special sweeper, and a tank is usually a decent combo, but choose the best pokemon you can get.)

Actually...Articuno is 4x weak to Rock as well.

Still,

For example, Salamence/Dragonite are OU despite 4x weak to Ice; Tyranitar despite 4x weak to Fighting. Weaknesses alone shouldn't prevent you from using a pokemon.
