2. Vigoroth, Skarmory and Obstagoon
For trainers who don't usually use Normal-Type Pokémon, now is the time to set them for battle, even if choices are a little low. For starters, a great team would be the power trio: Vigoroth, Skarmory, and Obstagoon. Vigoroth, just like Obstagoon has a fast counter attack while Skarmory has a fast attack for Air slash.
Among the three, Obstagoon may be the most difficult one. It's relatively new in the GP meta addition but it offers a powerful counter to ice types of Pokemon. It has a night slash, and a cross chop which you can definitely benefit from. Vigoroth has body slam and bulldoze while Skarmory has brave bird and sky attack.

Altaria, the humming Pokémon has always been an unexpected guest. Usually, other chocies overpower this player. However, it can be a perfect pair with Dewgong and Snorlax. This can be a strong and bulky team with a variety of coverage and offensive attacks. Altaria's Dragon breath and dragon pulse can attack any ice-type Pokémon, while Dewgong's Ice shard, icy wind, and water pulse can be a powerful addition. Snorlax can be a pergfect cover, with its fast lick, superpower, and slam.
4. Altaria, Alolan Marowak, and Magnezone
Although a rare choice, Altaria is actually a beast option which provides a great protection against counter users. To many, it can be difficult to add this to their team due to its challenging evolution process. But if you have it with a low CP, it's definitely time to go for it. Altaria, Alolan Marowak and Magnezone are a great team to cause some irreversible damage to your opponents.
However, Altaria can be defeated by Wigglytuff. Hence, Alolan is the best pair to cover Altaria. It can defeat Ice types with its fast move Fire spin, shadow bone, and bone club. Magnezone is also an excellent addition with its Spark fast move, mirror shot, and wild charge.
5. Skarmory, Alolan Graveler, and Meganium
Skarmory's Airslash will be a perfect pair for the Graveler version of Alolan that possesses a Volt Switch. The latter has an electric power with stone edge and rock blast that provides a perfect attack. Skarmory also has brave bird and sky attack that's a powerful set. Meganium is a great grass-type addition that can be a great coverage for electric and water-type opponents. It also has a vine whip, and earthquake for great protection.
