Don't use Staraptor like everyone else will say.

Although if you do, try beating the Whole Game with just Infernape and Staraptor

I usually have the same problem in DPPt. Not wanting to use Staraptor. Drifblim is quite nice, Chatot is unusual but very lategame. The Zubat line is readily available but has weak moves(still usable tough).

Noctowl is actually pretty good, in a way. It can also actually make use of Defog inbattle with Hypnosis. It's also pretty much invulnerable against Ghost types since Insomnia prevents Hypnosis from working.

Other fun pokemon: Houndoom, Medicham, Rampardos(depends on ID tough), Skuntank(this one can also learn Defog if you don't want to clog up your flier) and the Ralts line. I'm currently using the Roselia line in Diamond and it's really good. Just evolve Budew quickly. Using Bibarel as an actual member of the team could prove fun too and it could still make use of Waterfall and Strength.

if you want a challenge early on, catch a Zubat and raise it up to a Crobat. Zubat is garbage but Crobat is quite worth it.

Rampardos can also be an interesting challenge

This

I caught a Zubat, slapped the Soothe Bell on it, and it was only a Golbat for one level.
