    I would change all of your ice beams to blizzards.

    Put T-wave on chansey, especially without stun spore on eggy.

    Get rid of rock slide and rest on snorlax for hyper beam and self destruct.

    You're also in need someting fast who can hit physical (tauros/persian the most common, zapdos perhaps). With eggy, zam and starmie on your team you could afford to lose chansey.

    Finally a normal resist wouldn't hurt. Snorlax can take hit but you could replace him with a golem/rhydon, or better yet IMO replace Jynx with Gengar. With eggy backing him up you can afford to gamble on hypnosis.

    Chansey should use Ice beam over Blizzard.

    Consider using Seismic Toss over Psychic on Gengar to actually hurt Exeggutor either then blowing up. Exeggutor wants Stune Spore over Mega Drain since you'll scare off Golem/Rhydon even without it. The rest looks good and standard.

    Both Psychic and Seismic Toss work but I like Confuse Ray as well. Starmie should use Blizzard imo.

    Mega Drain or Seismic Toss over Psychic. Unless your battling in STADIUM

    Seems almost strange for me to see a pokemon without a STAB move (Starmie), but I do agree that Blizzard would be a good option, given the fact it has a higher accuracy in R/B/Y than any of the later generations.

    Mind you, it's the age-old choice - Accuracy or power. Choose as you will...

    Starmie wants Blizzard unless you want to lose to a MD eggy.

    I think the standard R/B/Y/ Team is Zapdos Charizard Snorlax Rhydon Dragonite Lapras

    Nah...it's more like Exeggutor, Chansey, Alakazam, Starmie, Snorlax, Tauros with Golem or Rhydon thrown in there somewhere.
