I'm not a big fan of Charizard or Gyarados (or for that matter, the legendary birds) because they are part flying. Instead of Charizard, I'd go with Arcanine, who has a higher base stat total and is not part flying. As for Gyarados, I don't care how powerful it is, the fact that it takes 4x damage from electric moves is unacceptable. There are plenty of strong water or dragon type pokemon that could take its place.

I haven't quite nailed down my dream team yet (only recently have I gotten back into Pokemon), but so far I think it would include:

{blastoise}
{mewtwo}
{raikou}
{blissey}
{dragonite}

I suppose I'd like to have a Tyranitar as the last Pokemon, but I don't think I can get a Tyranitar in FRLG. I think this team is pretty well rounded, the main weaknesses being a lack of strong rock, ground, poison, or fighting moves. I'm tempted to teach my Blastoise or my Dragonite Earthquake, but I'd prefer to have Earthquake on a ground type Pokemon in order to more effectively fight electric Pokemon (especially since electric is ONLY weak against ground). My current team, which falls somewhat short of my dream team, is as follows:

{blastoise}
{mewtwo}
{jolteon}
{blissey}
{dragonite}
{pidgeot}

I have yet to find a rock and/or ground type Pokemon with a really high base stat total. If you guys can think of a 6th Pokemon to round out my dream team, or if you have any criticism/suggestions, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks!

PS - In case you didn't notice, I'm a big fan of Pokemon with high base stat totals. The lowest BST (if I may) on my dream team above is Blastoise with 530 and the highest is Mewtwo with 680. I pretty much don't even consider Pokemon below 500, hence, no Nidoqueen/king.

PPS - I guess I contradicted myself a little (read: a lot) because I bashed Gyarados for taking 4x electric damage, but then I picked Dragonite, who takes 4x ice damage. Woops.....

After a bit more research, {tyranitar} is also a questionable choice, becuase even though it has a 600 base stat total, it takes 4x damage from fighting. I think I would replace {dragonite} and {tyranitar} with {steelix} and {kingdra}. Steelix is resistant to NINE types and is immune to two more and it has a BST of 510, which is decent, and 200 DEF! As tmforeignguy pointed out, Kingdra is only weak against dragon and takes 0.25x damage from TWO types! Plus, its BST is 540, which is higher than the fully evolved starter Pokemon (530). I'd probably teach it surf and dragon claw and it would be a force to be reckoned with.

As much as I hate to admit it, the addition of {kingdra} would mean I'd have to remove {blastoise}. Blastoise is probably my favorite Pokemon, regardless of stats, so removing it from my team would suck a lot. I think I'd probably replace it with Machamp, to even out the balance between special and phyical Pokemon (and to kill Tyranitar :mrgreen: ). I'd pick Machamp over Hitmonlee (or any other Hitmon-) becuase it has a higher BST (505 vs. 455) and it has high ATK.

So, if I could bring myself to get rid of Blastoise, my dream team would look like this:

{mewtwo}
{raikou}
{blissey}
{steelix}
{machamp}
{kingdra}

My favorite team I've ever had was on my old Silver version. They were badly leveled and had HMs in all the wrong places, but they usually got the job done for me. It was: {poliwrath} {lanturn} {tyranitar} {pidgeot} {typhlosion} {ampharos} if I remember correctly. I have a bad habit of making teams with multiple Water types, since they're my favorite type. My Pearl team was the worst example of that, using {bibarel} {empoleon} {golduck} {staraptor} {roserade} {luxray}, although post-Elite Four I had gotten a {dragonite} leveled up to even up with my party, and I also had a {pachirisu} of close to equal running around somewhere. My Platinum party, which is below, is probably my best-built, move-wise.

--------

In terms of a dream team, I would go with a pure Water-type team, because that's how I roll.
{empoleon} the added steel type does wonders, and it's just awesome.
{wailord} mostly just because I love Wailords, but it has a ton of HP.
{dewgong} or {walrein} or {lapras} Ice is a useful subtype that I often forget to use.
{lanturn} the added Electric type is AMAZING!
{vaporeon} I do love Vaporeon, so I'd almost have to use one.
{poliwrath} Fighting type can be an added weakness, but also an added strength

-----------

Others that I contemplated:
{pelipper} {gyarados} {swampert} {whiscash} {quagsire} I dislike 4x weaknesses.
{slowbro} {slowking} never used either of them, so I'm honestly not sure.
{crawdaunt} {sharpedo} same deal. Psychic and Dark could be useful.
{milotic} Milotics just piss me off.
{palkia} {suicune} {kyogre} I try not to use legendaries.

-----

Wow, that was a long post. (gets off of his soapbox)

My favorite types are drago/fire, but there aren't any pokemon of moth types, and there are only 12 final-stage Dragons, not including Dragon-type Arceus, which I have along with the other 12 finally. My fav team right now is:
{charizard} {blastoise} {rayquaza} {garchomp} {dragonite} {arceus} (dragon-type)

If I need an alternate, I'd use {kingdra} {torterra} (only good grass-type)
Actually, I'm a Dragon Tamer, so I could use any Dragon-type pokemon as a subsitute, and most are also Flying or Ground type. Grr....

Basically, my dream team would be like a "classic" team to a certain extent.
{armaldo} {blaziken} {blastoise} {torterra} {salamence} {snorlax}
Or the following as substitutes: {poliwrath} {kyogre} {groudon} {rayquaza} {metagross} {lunatone} {flygon} {sceptile} {swampert} {dragonite} {mewtwo} {typhlosion} {feraligatr} {typhlosion} {meganium} {drifblim} {honchkrow} {giratina} {heatran} {uxie} {dialga} {infernape} {empoleon} {staraptor} {luxray} {golem} {porygon} {magnezone} {weavile} {rhyperior} {lickilicky} {tangrowth} {electivire} {magmortar} {togekiss} {yanmega} {leafeon} {glaceon} {gliscor} {mamoswine} {gallade} {probopass} {delibird} {lapras} {gyarados} {vaporeon} {jolteon} {flareon} {arbok} {nidoqueen} {nidoking} {venusaur} {charizard} {electabuzz} {magmar} {gengar} {kingler} {exeggutor} {hitmonchan} {hitmonlee} {lickitung} {rhydon} {weezing} yeah thats a lot of pokemon. :mrgreen:

When I play a game again I like to use a different team if possible. As for most used Pigeotto and Graveller are most likely in there.

But my own team consists of {charizard} {jolteon} {dragonair} {gyarados} {parasect} {hitmonlee} which I think is pretty unique considering. Charizard and Dragonite are two of my favoruite Pokemon of all time along with Blaziken so I had to have the two in there.

My all time dream team would be {charizard} {blaziken} {dragonite} {scizor} {salamence} {lucario}

Type wise it's not so effective, but the guys are just so cool. Pitty I can't make that happen on FR though due to lack of Lucario.

I've been working on my team, also known as my dream team, a lot lately in Leafgreen. The Pokemon I use are each for different types of Pokemon sent out. I'm also training the last two in this list to catch up to 55 with the rest of the gang.

{venusaur} {snorlax} {nidoqueen} {nidoking} {jolteon} {poliwrath}

But, I'm thinking of trying out a {ninetales} since it is already up to 47. I'm not sure.

I'm not exactly adept at picking six pokemon,
but I am capable of narrowing it down to 13 pokes.
These thirteen got me through the entire game,
and have beaten everyone I've ever fought so far.
It should be noted I am aware that many better pokes exist,
but I like these and they work well enough.

{venusaur} {pidgeot} {raichu} {graveler} {persian} {hypno} {ninetales} {haunter} {hitmonlee} {poliwrath} {parasect} {dragonite} {dewgong}
