theme team for Pokemon Y

Someone in the Pokemon megathread on Something Awful wanted to play through Yellow with only the worst Pokemon available in that game, and someone else suggested being a renegade bad guy and only using Team Rocket pokemon. This inspired me! I recently played through Alpha Sapphire in Spanish as a challenge (my Spanish skills are, um... poor), and sent over the team I'd use the whole game in eggs, and it was actually a lot of fun having my team assembled from the beginning.

Here's what Team Flare grunts can have in X or Y: Houndour, Zubat, Gulpin, Electrike, Scraggy, Croagunk, Poochyena, and Purrloin. Eugh. Suggestions? I think I should probably keep my starter, as "the first Pokemon I got after leaving Team Flare"... should I have a dedicated HM-user too? Can I keep the Kanto starter that Professor Whoever will give me?

Also, uh, can anyone produce Zubat eggs who'll hatch with Luxury Balls? Caught myself a pair of Zubat in Alpha Sapphire, so I'm good for Zubat. I think the rest of my team will be [Starter], [Zubat], Gulpin, Electrike, Scraggy, ...something. I don't really like Froakie, but I'll need something that can learn Surf and Waterfall...
