If you choose torchic as your starter, it will be a lot easier to beat the game, make sure Blaziken Learns Skyupper Cut because it is very very very useful for defeating the Dark, and Ice types in the elite four.
Sceptile is also quite good for the elite four. Watch out for Wallace's Ludicolo Though! Its tough. Same for Wallace's Wailord.
