Have you ever had a particular pokemon that stood out above the rest?
And you depended on it to defeat E4, Gym Leader, Etc?
For most it's your starter, but have you ever had another pokemon that you depended on to defeat someone?

IN Pokemon Yellow, I always made sure to have a Nidoking/queen. They were fantastic.

In Pearl, I started with Chimchar. Because it was weak against Psychic type Pokemon, I got a Misdreavus (who is now a Mismagius) and a Gastly (who is now a Gengar) to balance it out...Then I realized Ghost Pokemon are weak to Psychic also. :\
But I still beat the Elite 4 with only those 3 Pokemon! lol

For me it's usually my starter only because unless you stop using it, it's most likely your strongest Pokemon and one would usually rely on power to help them through a tough fight.

What are you talking about? Gengar is only weak to Psychic because he's part Poison, if a Ghost Pokemon doesn't have the Poison in there it's not weak to Psychic.

Oh...Well, I've been under the wrong impression for a while. Poop :)
Lol, thanks for clearing that up, though!

My Vaporeon in LeafGreen with Ice Beam. He's fantastic. :D

Other than that, an Electric-type (Raichu), my starter (Charizard) and my wall (Clefable).

No team really feels like a dream team to me without either a mew or an alakazam-I made a point of importing a mew from Pal Park as soon as I could.
I find them both so elegant, it's very hard to explain I must say.
I very rarely tend to have grass types anymore.
Does anymore make a point of starting with the grass starter?

I usually like to start Bulbasaur, but beyond that, not really. I started Turtwig on my second(current) playthrough of Diamond, and I guess Torterra is OK. I was pretty underwhelmed by all three starters in gen IV.

My Garchomp and my Ducknoir are pretty reliable for me. Maybe that's becuz Garchomp is uber and my dusknoir has a DoubleTeam *hax*. hey the batle tower uses it so why not?

I depended on my Feraligatr, and Lugia, in Silver.
They both breezed right through the E4. ^^

I always make sure my starter does, pidgeot or staraptor. I like the bird pokemon! :)

In Pearl, I remember always losing to the Elite Four until I raised my Lucario. Then I finally won, and that Lucario found its permanent space on my team. I depended on him in a tournament, and was glad that I did, since I won second place because of him. He's now my strongest Pokemon on Pearl, and has yet to let me down.

The one that got me through the majority of the Elite Four was actually my Mismagius, Spite, who was the...third Pokémon I caught, as a Misdreavus. She has quite a balanced moveset. And, of course, my Empoleon, Blue (my starter) pretty much blattered everything else with Surf and Hydro Pump xD

Surprisingly, the Chatot I insisted on raising instead of the Starly I'd caught at the beginning was also pretty darn awesome against the Elite Four.

My Golduck and Luxray Were the pokemon i depended on most during the game i ditched my starter before the fourth gym because i thought Piplup=Cute & Cool Empoleon= UGLY which i still think today.

I used to depend on my Charizard way back when in the prehistory time. When I was into Diamond, I didn't rely on anyone in particular, but I gave my Lucario as much time as possible :33
