    OK, so here's my current team:

    -Typhlosion
    Eruption
    Earthquake
    Flamethrower
    Shadow claw

    -Tyranitar
    Earthquake
    Ice punch
    Crunch
    Hyperbeam

    -Alakazam
    Psychic
    Focus Blast
    Shadow Ball
    Energy Ball

    -Ampharos
    Discharge
    Signal Beam
    Thunderbolt
    Focus Blast

    -Dragonite
    Fly
    Draco Meteor
    Dragon Claw
    Earthquake

    -Lapras
    Surf
    Icebeam
    Thunder
    Rain dance

    All in their late 50's(levels, I mean) with no items.
    I also EV trained them and they are IV bred.
    Are there any changes I should make to pokemons and/or moves and what items should I get them the hold. I though of getting a jolteon to replace my ampharos because it has better speed.

    I would replace Ampharos with Jolteon. The stats for Ampharos is higher than Jolteon but because of the moveset, Jolteon is more preferred by competitive players.

    Jolteon has higher speed and Special Defense.

    And with what moveset?
    I'm thinking something like:
    -Thunderbolt
    -Hidden power(grass)
    -Shadow ball
    -[other move]

    Lines mean change, slashes means optional changes. Of course, this is from a competitive perspective, but in-game your team will be just fine.

    I know it is good for in-game, I'm looking for a competitive battling team.

    If I get an Arcanine, what moveset do I give it?

    And I though a Raindance/Thunder Lapras was good?

    In order to use a Rain Dance team, you must be sure it doesn't affect any other Pokemon. The fact is, your team has a fire sweeper and in order for it to be used effectively, Rain must be down. Rain centers on other Pokemon that depend on it since it effectively affects the entire team and may even prove to be an advantage for your enemy.

    Arcanine, I recommend this with a Life Orb.

    Flare Blitz
    Thunder Fang / Hidden Power Grass
    ExtremeSpeed
    Morning Sun

    Or you can switch Life Orb with a Choice Band and Morning Sun with Iron Head.

    But change it as you see fit.

    Arcanine. I love Arcanine XD

    Okay serious now.

    Arcanine has high Attack and Special Attack, allowing you to have many offensive moves.

    Smogon.com recommend the following moves.

    Flare Blitz
    ExtremeSpeed
    Morning Sun
    Toxic / Will-O-Wisp

    Actually, all moves make PERFECT SENSE. Flare Blitz is a very strong move and can tear Pokemon like tissue paper, anybody who survives will be finished by ExtremeSpeed.

    First two moves(which is Flare Blitz and Extremespeed) is a must for all Arcanine. The next few moves can vary. I would take Dragon type moves such as Dragon Claw and Dragon Pulse due to his high Attack and Special Attack(I like Dragon Type moves). Will-O-Wisp is a good move because it can inflict burn, and thus successfully reducing the Attack Points of your enemy by half. Toxic is deadly. I got fucked by it too many times.

    So that's pretty much it. I hope I help.

    I'd just like to know how you can be sure to get a specific Hidden Power move without resorting to Pokesav.

    You can. You'll have to catch a lot of Pokemon to do so.

    So...I wasn't of any help? o.o

    And, Gengar would be a better choice than Alakazam, like what Kingdom said.
