Lorelei will do serious damage - her being water and ice, will tear apart Venusaur, Ninetales and Sandslash.
Raichu on its own may not have the power to deal with her unless you are seriously levelled up.
I found Mr. Mime (from the trade back at Digletts Cave) to do extremely well - not as frail, and gets T-bolt by TM, as well as Calm Mind and Psychic by level up. Actually, I always got Mr. Mime, also because of the utility of Trick.
Poliwrath may be able to take on Onix, but it's not strong enough to take on Lance. You need a very strong Ice-Beamer - by STAB or special attack.
Starmie would be a good addition, with Surf, Psychic, Thunderbolt, and Ice Beam (TM galore!).
Jynx, with Ice Beam and Psychic (both by TM) will do a bit of damage, but she doesn't get them by level-up, which will cost you (Psychic and Calm Mind are non-renewable in FrLg).
And as we come to Agatha, Gengar is a pain without a Psychic type - GO GET ONE.
Sandslash sucks as a ground type - no EQ by level up. At least Marowak gets Bonemerang, and the other grounds at least get Magnitude.
Here's my team, and it usually get through with just these...
Mr.Mime - Psychic, T-bolt, Trick, Substitute
Lapras (yes, I'm cliche) - Surf, T-bolt, Ice Beam, Confuse Ray
Marowak - Brick Break, Bonemerang, *filler* (which means False Swipe and Strength) When I got it leveled up, Double-Edge came in handy, specifically for Kingdra)
Charizard - Wing Attack, Flamethrower, Brick Break, Slash.
For good measure, I tacked on Meowth (Pickup + PayDay), and Weepinbell. The four listed above were left, virtually unmodified for the beating of the pumped-up Elite-4. Subsequent ones included two Pokemon that needed level-ups for filling up my pokedexes.
The levels - considering I was not shy with hyper potions, full heals, revives, etc.
Mr. Mime - level 56
Lapras - level 54
Marowak - level 47
Charizard - level 50
Meowth - level 36
Weepinbell - level 55
(I swear - I am looking at my Hall of Fame now).
