Sorry if I misunderstand but how did you get EQ on Altaria? Isn't that a post-game TM considering you find it on Route 15 which (AFAIK) you don't have access to until you beat Iris?
Also for Magnemite, never delete Metal Sound. Ever. It will win the unwinnable and defeat the undefeatable. I've written an in-depth analysis of Maggy so I might post it later, although the only stuff I wrote that I haven't seen here already are specific matchup notes and also a tl;dr about his mid-game movepool (why it sucks but doesn't push him down a tier).
