Yep, I know that all Pokemon, no matter how strong they are have weaknesses. But for your own Pokemon's weaknesses, you need to know how to support them. Not sure if this is the kind of weakness you're referring to but...My Charizard (even though the amount of attacks are limited) has quite a variety of attacks. She knows Solarbeam to counter Rock and Water Types, and Earthquake for elelctic types. The rest are fire type moves, including Blast Burn.
I've never played Gale of Darkness before, I only have Pokemon Gameboy or DS games.
It's usually my started Pokemon that are higher leveled than my other Pokemon. Like, even after I finished the game, my Charizard is at leas more than 10 levels higher than most of my team, with the exception of my second strongest Pokemon, Vaporeon. It's the same with every other generation, for Sapphire, my strongest is Sceptile, second is Flygon, in Pearl, strongest is Empoleon, second is Mismagius. But two Pokemon aren't enough, I know for a fact that my whole team should be balanced.
I make the horrible mistake of (not really intentional) of making one Pokemon excel highly over the other Pokemon, causing the other Pokemon to be a bit under-levled, and then I depend on my highest level Pokemon and when it faints, my other Pokemon go with it. Dx I feel like hitting myelf in the face, because I know it's my fault.
I get mad at myself when my team and I lose too, I feel like crying whenever my Pokemon faint. xD (Call me over sensitive but...) I just know that it's my fault, 'specially when the Pokemon wasn't ready or under leveled.
Yeah, I think alotta people think normal type Pokemon are weak.
I'm not sure about Butterfree (some people I know think it's girly and weak), but I was able to beat the rival's (in FireRed) Arcanine, despite the type disadvantage. Lol, I have a Linoone too, it's the third strongest in my team, and in Sapphire, I was able to beat the Elite Four without it fainting even once. I seriously don't know why people judge Pokemon of being weak or girly.
Lol, sorry if I'm annoying you about this. But I never knew that there was anyone in the world that saw Pokemon training the same way as me. I had posted that training didn't depend on the Pokemon, but trainer. Lol, I thought I sounded really cheesy and tacky saying that, cuz it sounded like it came from a cereal box. xD
