Actually, for Kyogre, you should put on Thunder because since Kyogre has Drizzle, Thunder will never miss. I personally go with Waterfall instead of Hydro pump not only because of the power, but because thehit rate is also higher than Hydro pump (and since you already have eruption on Groudon, you should go with the equal water move on Kyogre)my Kyogre is the following:
and for Groudon, you have two fire moves on it because if one doesn't work well on an enemy, the other one won't either, so you don't really need both. my Groudon has the following:
Your Sceptile and Blaziken look fine. I don't know what nature your Sceptile has, so you may actualyl have been better off going with all special moves if you have a hindering nature for Attack, but if not, those attacks look just great. Personally, though, after you are through catching pokemon, I would switch out false Swipe for an Attack that can KO an enemy, but until then, your pokemon look just great.
My suggestion for Sceptile is to have it learn Thunderpunch when you arrive at the Battle Frontier. You also may want to consider changing False Swipe for HP Ice (depending whether you are able to get that HP), Substitute, or Leech Seed.

well seeing as we were all new to certain aspects of abbreviations and the how to of stats and IVs and whatnot, since there were people kind enough to answer our questions, we should be curteous enough to answer others... even if some of us DON'T know how to spell "Curteous"
Anyway basically Hidden Power (HP) is a move that has random strength and type affinity based on your pokemon's IVs when you first found it. IVs are the numbers assigned to the various stats on top of the base stats. They can be anywhere from 0 - 31 and increase the stats of the pokemon the same was EVs do. The difference is that IVs are on the pokemon when you find it, and cannot be altered. The EVs are what you yourself give the pokemon by fighting certain other wild pokemon, thus you are controlling what stats increase. (which is why no two pokemon can ever have exactly the same stats)
so getting back to Hidden Power. The Ivs on your pokemon (you cannot see them) when you find it are used by the game and the combination of numbers determine what Type and What Power Hidden power has. So, a pokemon with 21 IVs in AT, 17 IVs in Def, 29 IVs in SP At (well, you get it. In all hte stats) will have a certain Hidden power type, but another pokemon will have different IVs, so therefore it's Hidden power will be different.
Basically, a Lineoone when you find it (based on the game calculating it's IVs when you got it) could have an Ice type Hidden power (meaning, that when you teach it Hidden Power, in battle it will be an Ice Type move) however, if you find another Lineoone, IT'S hidden power could be fighting Type (again, based on the IVs of when you found it) there's no way to control IVs, nor is there anyway to change them, so if you get a Hidden Power of a type that you don't want, you either have to breed a new pokemon, find a new pokemon or use a different move altogether.
On top of that, as if that wasn't bad enough, it's not just Hidden Power's Type that is random, it's strength is random too. It ranges from 30 - 70 points, and there's no way of knowing without finding a Hidden Power Calculator on the internet somewhere. Again, a Lineoon that has certain IVs could have a fire type HP with a power of 45, but another lineoone could have a Ghost type HP with a power of 70 while yet another lineoone could have a Dragon type HP of 30. It's all random and literally depends on the pokemon you find or breed (not species, literally the individual pokemon you find) it's a LOT more trouble then it's worth, in my opinion, because even if you are lucky enough to get the type you want, you may get the weakest version of it. There's no way to tell how strong the attack is in game without going on the internet and looking for a hidden power calculator, and the onyl sure way in game to find outwhat type your HP is to find a Kecleon (or go into a double battle with your own Kecleon, and hope your attack doesn't KO it) because Kecleon (if it lives) will change to whatever type your Hidden power was. If there's one pokemon you really want Hidden pwoer on then go on a breeding spree until you get the type you want. otherwise, it's REALLY complicated and takes FAR more time then (I think) it's worth. Hope that helps.
(BTW, I just kept it general. It's more in depth that I talked about but hopefully I told you enough to give you an idea of how it works)
Oh, btw, surf is a bad move on Kyogre, actually. Worse than Hydro pump in double battles because it's strength is halved in double battles. and in Single battles, meh. I'd still go for Hydro pump or WaterSPOUT (sorry! I got the name wrong before! I didn't actualyl mean Waterfall, I meant WaterSPOUT! sory! actually, go for waterspout, because you already have Eruption on Groudon, and they both work the same way and are of equal strength. Sure Waterspout depends on HP, (Hit points, not hidden power) but so does eruption, so if you have it on one, the other won't mind then! Again, sorry about before, I didn't mean waterfall, I meant waterSPOUT! Sorry! )
