So I want to make an Intimidate Team But I'm Haveing trouble picking which pokemon to use

The two that are set in stone are Staraptor, Masquirain, Tauros and Arcanine.
Staraptor and maqurain because they can use U-turn, Tauros learns pursuit and decent stats, Arcanine because its close in stats to be a special sweeper.

The last two spots are open

Arbok, Hitmontop- Pros: Shares no weaknesses with U-turners, Learns Pursuit, Cons:Poor Stats in general
Salamence, Gyrados- Pros:Really Great Stats, Cons: Shares 4x Weaknesses with U-turners, as well as other weaknesses

I went with Arboks and Hitmontop. This team won't really have much success in the OU environment, so they would be the best bet to go and use in the UU/NU environment.

I say go with Salamence because Salamence has good Attack, Special Attack, and Speed. Also, has good move-sets. Your poll option said to choose 2 Pokemon but I wasn't sure about the other Pokemon for me to choose.

I went with {arbok} & {hitmontop} because they keep your party having a wide arrange of type variety to keep your opponent from having a type advantage at times which is good no? Also, cause Arbok has poison attacks which non of your other pokemon learn by default & Hitmontop cause of it's fighting type. Salamence is not neccessary due to Arcanine & Staraptor being in attendence & Gyarados is a very bad choose since you have Masquerain & Staraptor available. Hope I helped eventually.

Hitmontop is a good choice with a 252HP 252ATK it's def is still a base 95 and is balanced with a base 110 s.def, speed can be made up for with STAB mach punch and sucker punch, it's also the only rapid spinner that can spin on ghosts with use of foresight.
Salamence is also quite good, it has that 4x ice and 2x rock weakness but it's stats and movepool are amazing. Personally I'd switch out masquirain for Arbok and use Arbok to glare or toxic walls or special attackers.

Blastoise, Hitmonlee, and Hitmonchan.

>.> quiet you.

I'll rephrase that as he's the only viable spinner that can use foresight. Chan and Lee suck for spinning and Blastoise can use the combo, but has no STABs that can benefit from it as well.

When did Surf require using Foresight to be able to hit Ghosts?

Perhaps it would be more notable as the only Rapid Spinner with the Intimidate ability.

Yes, Kabutops has Swift Swim. Of course, if you had read the first post, you would realize that he wanted pokemon with Intimidate. (Obviously you didn't because, as you stated, Kabutops's ability is Swift Swim).
