Metal & Color Generation FAQ
Metal Series FAQ for Gold, Silver and Crystal
Last edited by Vito Winstrate on December 7th 2003
By Vito Winstrate (a.k.a Shigeru-san/Jake/Masato-san)

This FAQ notes the differences between "Gold and Silver" and Crystal, and the changes between the Crystal Japanese version and English version. It will also give steps on catching Celebi, and a few Gold and Silver Facts. If there is something you want me to add, PM me and it'll be answered in my next edit.

Pokmon Crystal's omissions and additions.
Many have wondered about what changed with the Japanese Crystal and the English Crystal. This document lists those changes.

The changes of Pokmon Crystal Japanese and English are
- The Pokmon Communication Center Administration Area's main people (Nurse Joy, the people who give you tips, etc.) were moved into an added Pokmon Center and they changed the Pokmon Communication Center main building into a Pokmon Center. The data for that Center is the same as the casual Gold and Silver Pokmon Center. In fact, the Pokmon Center seen in the English Pokmon Crystal was already built into the Japanese Crystal, but there were originally no people in it (they were moved into the PCC).
- The Nurses won't give you a GS Ball unless you make AT LEAST ONE MOBILE CONNECTION which you can't do in the English Crystal. The Mobile System is now down so such thing can't be done.
- The upstairs rooms of the Pokmon Centers had 2 doors for each section (except for the Time Capsule), one was a trading/battle room and one was a Mobile trading/battle room where you had to dial a number to battle with your friend or someone using the adapter.
- Without obtaining the GS Ball you can't activate the Celebi event.
- The Battle Tower in the Japanese Crystal would allow battles with other people you didn't know via Mobile Adapter, while the Crystal English one was just as the same, but with set trainers with random Pokmon.

Pokmon Additions basing from Gold and Silver.
- Some areas (Ice Cave, Rooftop of Celadon Mansion, etc) have changed map data.
- There is a Pokmon Communication Center in Goldenrod Center (Japanese Version).
- Duplicating Pokmon has been omitted.
- The forest shrine has added event data (Celebi).
- Trainers of whom you exchange phone numbers with will tell you if they have a rare stone.
- PokGear Trainers will talk in their own manner rather than a generic manner (eg. "I spotted a rare HOPPIP earlier." will have expression such as "When walking earlier around I saw a cute little HOPPIP.").
- If you call trainers they might ask you to battle, and unlike in GS they won't forget.
- Addition of the Battle Tower.
- Addition of the Wise Trio and Eusine. The Wise Trio are a trio who each have 2 Pokmon, one a Noctowl and another will be one of the original Eevee evolutions. On the way to the Tin Tower after obtaining the Clear Bell, they will contront and battle you. You meet Eusine at least 3 times in your adventure, the first time in the Burnt Tower.
- Awakening the legendary dogs is compulsory to continue your adventure.
- You need to get the three dogs to get Ho-oh.

The Safari Zone and omitted maps and map data.
In Pokmon Gold, Silver and Crystal, there are useless maps and areas such as the Safari Zone.
The Safari Zone exists, but no Pokmon are in it.

Duplication of Pokmon.
Yes, it's true, such exists. It's easy, all you have to do is follow these steps:
  1. Select the Pokmon you want to duplicate from your party and deposit it into your PC.
  2. Change the box, during the saving process however, turn the game off during the save process.
  3. If timed correctly, you'll have a copy of your Pokmon in your party and the other selected box.
WARNING! Such cheat may erase your game. I am not responsible for any damages by this code.
This glitch has been rectified in Pokmon Crystal, so it isn't possible to duplicate it in Crystal.

Catching Pokmon 251 - Celebi.
Celebi does exist, and is catchable only in Crystal via code or Japanese version.
- The Pokmon Communication Center Administration Area's main people (Nurse Joy, the people who give you tips, etc.) were moved into an added Pokmon Center and they changed the Pokmon Communication Center main building into a Pokmon Center. The data for that Center is the same as the casual Gold and Silver Pokmon Center. In fact, the Pokmon Center seen in the English Pokmon Crystal was already built into the Japanese Crystal, but there were originally no people in it (they were moved into the PCC).
- The Nurses won't give you a GS Ball unless you make AT LEAST ONE MOBILE CONNECTION which you can't do in the English Crystal. The Mobile System is now down so such thing can't be done.
- Without obtaining the GS Ball you can't activate the Celebi event.
- If you had the GS Ball you'd have to give it to Kurt, who'd examine it for a day. The next day, he'll say that it was mysterious, and then he will notice a strong gust is being blown in Ilex Forest.
- He'll walk outside, you have to go into the Shrine and place the GS Ball in the Shrine, and Celebi would appear.

GS Code to activate this event is: 91C089DA
This GameShark code that activates the event. Kurt will have the GS Ball, which later he goes outside as a strong gust blows in Ilex Forest.
'Talk' to the shrine and you will be asked to put in the GS Ball.

Catching the legendary dogs.
During your adventure you may have awakened the legendary dogs, Gold, Silver and Crystal's legendary trio (most definitely awakened during your quest in Crystal). Otherwise, to awaken them enter the Burnt Tower. You will confront your rival who will challenge you to a battle, or in Crystal, you will meet Eusine and Morty. In Crystal's case, you need to go through the area and find your rival. He will challenge you, after beating him you will fall through a hole and then you must confront the legendary dogs there (there's no getting out until you do). In Gold and Silver, you need to use Rock Smash to plough through rocks and get to the end, where after dropping you will also confront them.

In Pokmon Crystal, Suicune is easier to catch, as after confronting it in the Tin Tower (first time entering) it'll battle, and not flee. However, Raikou and Entei still flee, and are at random areas of the map.
In Gold and Silver, however, all dogs run around Johto. You will have to put them to sleep in battle, because even if you use Mean Look at them, they can use ROAR.
Simply throw PokBalls at them to catch them.

In Crystal, you need to catch all three dogs to get to Ho-oh. If they are defeated, you will never be able to get it and will have to start the game again. So make sure you save!

schweet dood thanks it helped alot

Tzuri17 July 23rd, 2004 3:07 AM

Hey! I wanna know something...if I will deafet one of the lagendery dogs and then I will trade the same dog that I have deafeted from a friend. will I be able to catch HO OH?

Tzuri17 July 29th, 2004 3:46 AM

Anyone XD?
(need to type some more to make massege appear)

Hiroshi Sotomura July 29th, 2004 4:33 AM

I should have tried to respond quicker, but also avoid double-posting. I won't punish you, don't worry.

Nope, you need to catch all the three dogs in Crystal. No fainting, no trading.

Tips For Newbies And Others For RBY (And possibly GSC)
I decided to make this thread for those who are new to the world of RBY... XD

1) Press A while walking around the Casino in Celadon City. Every now and then you will find coins. Sometimes, 10 sometimes 100!

2) Don't just level up a lead Pokmon. I made this mistake when I first started (Not that I failed because I began leveling up others too). Try leveling each of your six at an even rate. My theory is if you level up your Pokmon five levels between each gym, you will have very strong little warriors to fight the League without much training.
E.G. LV5 + 10 (Brock's Gym) = 15 + 5 (Misty's Gym) = 20 + 5 (Lt Surge's Gym) = 25 etc. Keep doing that. By the time you get to Giovanni, you will have them strong and level to his. It might be wise to level them about 10 extra levels before battling the League though if you do this.

3) Assess your Gym Leaders before battle. If you do this, you will have a good chance at winning. If you put the best type for the job first, you can win with a type advantage. (I will have a type chart up sometime in the future)

4) It's a good idea to talk to people and check things such as trees. If you talk to people, they may give you advice or even items. In Viridian City, if you check the CUT tree near the coffee guy, you will find a Potion! And the guy near Viridian City (Between VC and Pallet Town) will give you a Potion!

5) Upgrade your Rod. It's a good idea to get all three rods. The rods can hook different Pokmon. The Old Rod only hooks Magikarp. But that isn't such a big loss. At Level 15, they learn Tackle, and at Level 20, they evolve into Gyarados! The Good Rod hooks better Pokmon such as Goldeen and Seaking. Still you need the Super Rod which hooks pretty much the same Pokmon but at higher levels.

6) Catch BOTH Snorlax. Yes there are TWO level 30 Snorlax in the game. If you catch both than you have a good lineup. Snorlax are quite strong. Considered 00bers I think. But yes they are great and can learn many TMs.

7) If you are going to cheat, make sure you know the consequences.
Yes we know of three main glitches in RBY.
Glitch City: This does not affect your game too much. Fly to get out of it.
Mew Glitch: This one does not stuff up the games to my knowledge.
MissingNo: This is the most affective glitch. Sure it multiplies your items a heap. But there are several side-affects.
GameShark/GameGenie/Action Reply:
These will most likely stuff up your game but may not. Be careful with these cheating devices.

8) Basic Battle Tips:
Status Changes: If you change your opponent's status, this can turn a bad battle good.
Poison: Will slowly drain health.
Sleep: This will make your opponent sleep for a small period of time
Paralysis: A good trick. This keeps them paralyzed for the entire battle and they may not move
Burn: Like poison this drains health.
Freeze: This keeps them frozen for ages giving you a tonne of time to attack. They cannot attack while they are frozen.
Confusion: This makes the opponent attack themselves (sometimes). A good tactic!

Stat Lowering: A good way of annoying the opponent
Accuracy: Lowering Acccuracy gives your opponent less of hitting you
Attack: Lowering Physical Damage is the main damage thing in the game
Special: Lowering Special Attacks will help if opponent has type advantage.
Defense: Lowering opponents defense will give you a good chance to do more damage.
Speed: Lowering Speed will give them less chance to attack first.

I think I covered all of the stats.

Damage: Damaging the opponent is key to any battle. The first to get the others health to '0' wins!
Special Attacks: These aren't right up Physical Attacks. These are mostly done from a distance which is good in battle type advantages.
Physical Attacks: The in your face attacks. These may not work as well as Special.

More coming next Sunday! (If this thread stays open I have no idea if it will be locked)

Feedback will be accepted.

Hiroshi Sotomura December 5th, 2004 2:37 AM

Well first, this thread earned a STICKY for excellent tiops. Maybe not as excellent as the NetBattle tips, but it's still helpful, even though I don't like reading through tips while I play the games. You're so lucky I beat my game already. ;)

Dogbert December 5th, 2004 2:41 AM

*Breathes a sigh of relief* You had me worried! Cause usually when a mod posts in something I'm not too sure about I get nervous!
Thanks for the sticky and the OK!
Yeah I usually like to get as far as I can without tips too!

Dogbert December 5th, 2004 11:28 PM

OK I have nothing better to do today so I'm updating.
And I'll do a little of GSC and RBY today...

1) Item Finder DOES help. After you catch 30 Different Pokmon, go to east of Vermilion City, and go to the top of the lookout. Oak's Aide will give you an Item Finder for your efforts. If you are looking for items such as Rare Candies and you can't find any more of them in Item Balls, try using Item Finder. Item Finder affects the entire screen that's showing. If you move up so there is one more space. It will have a different affect.
An example is in Underground Path. Use Item Finder to find an item. If you move five spaces up or down, this changes the screen, therefore, you may find different items *Hopes it wasn't too confusing*. Once you have got an item in trace, push A until you find it!

2) Having trouble training your Pokmon? Get an EXP Share. At the top of the lookout west of Fuchsia City and talk to Oak's Aide. If you have 50 different Pokmon, he'll give you an EXP Share. The EXP Share divides the EXP from the Pokmon beaten and distributes to Pokmon equally. Plus, the lead Pokmon earns its normal EXP!

3) Easy Pokmon. To get some Pokmon easily, get coins from the Casino. Some Pokmon you can only get from the Casino.
~List Coming Soon~

4) Think before you ink! XD In other words, think before teaching moves to Pokmon. You can only learn up to four moves. And any moves you forget may not be able to be relearnt.
Some TMs can only be used once because they are the only ones in the game.
If you use a HM, it cannot be replaced. However, thanks to GSC this problem can now be fixed. Trading a Pokmon to GSC is good because of the Move Tutor.
Sometimes you need correct movesets. Check the movesets section of this forum to get a good moveset.

5) Evolving can be good, yet, sometimes it isn't. Pokmon that evolve by an evolution stone are mainly what this is aimed at. Some Pokmon learn better moves before evolving.
Take Growlithe for example. If it doesn't evolve before learning all moves, it can learn Ember, Leer, Take Down, Agility and Flamethrower. Yet, if you evolve it straight away, it will only know Roar, Ember, Leer and Takedown.
Yet, sometimes evolution IS needed. Take Eevee for example, unless it evolves early, it will only know crud moves. Keep this in mind.

1) Trial and Error is the key. Take the Underground Basement in Goldenrod City for example. There are switches around. You have to get three of them in the right order. This is the key!
Then you have other things such as Price's gym. This involves quite a bit of thinking. But remember: Trial and error.

2) Assess the situation and then attack.
In battles, especially in the improved series of Pokmon (GSC in other words), it is important to assess the situation. Think before you ink! XD. Take Gengar for example. In RBY, it was just a Ghost type and you could attack it head on with a Psychic type. Now, you have to use a different type because it is Dark, making it resistant to Psychic.

3) Do the side quests. Doing the side quests can make the game easier. Take the Magnet Train for example. This speeds up the time it takes to get to Kanto from Johto. This is alot faster. Not to mention, if you get the Ticket from the Mimic Girl (Find her doll) then you can ride and it is quick. Also, you can get the Pok Flute channel (Accessable only in Kanto) and can wake up Snorlax.

That's all of my wisdom for today! Enjoy!

Mana Lugia December 5th, 2004 11:45 PM

Ok, data updates needed. Gametips are excellent, but your battling tips are horrible. Gengar isn't even Dark. It's ghost/poison. In GSC, Gengar is godly weak to Psychic, and should not be used against Psys at all.

Dogbert December 5th, 2004 11:50 PM

Sorry my bad! I might have been thinking of a different Pokmon!
Everyone ignore what I said about Gengar!

Thanks for the feedback though. I am not too great in putting things into words. That's why it probably sounds horrible.

Mana Lugia December 5th, 2004 11:53 PM

I'm gonna give you some tips: Post pure gameplay tips here. Battling tips are more than redundant in the game. It's really about using moves with decent PP, and since the computer is a moron anyways, just go full force with high levels and you'd win. In terms of link battling, I'm sure the strats forum can cover them.

But your gameplay tips are great, so keep at them!

Dogbert December 18th, 2004 7:49 PM

Well I decided I better start posting again:

1) Don't start the game with your friend's LV70 Mewtwo (Yes I got that title from Prima's Strategy Guide). If you start off the game with that Mewtwo, it will not obey. It may attack like once every five turns! Chances are it will go to sleep! You need badges. These are the badges that affect levels that make your Pokmon obey.

Cerulean City - Cascade Badge = LV30. This means you could trade a level 25 Ivysaur from your friend and have it obey.

Celadon City - Rainbow Badge = LV50. This means you could trade over a level 42 Jynx from your friend and have it obey.

Saffron City - Marsh Badge = LV70. This means you could trade over a level 66 Mew from your friend and have it obey.

Viridian City - Earth Badge = All Pokmon. This means you can actually trade the Mewtwo over and use it (You could for Marsh Badge too). All Pokmon at any level will obey with this badge.

2) Happiness is the best thing. In Yellow, you must make Pikachu happy in order to get Charmander, Squirtle and Bulbsaur. One sly and sleazy way, is to use a Potion when Pikachu is at full health. That was a small glitch.

3) Why go to all the effort at the Safari Zone? At the Safari Zone, some Pokmon are a pain in the butt. Kangaskhan being the most annoying. There are two ways to get the Kangaroo without going to the Safari Zone. Trade from GSC OR do the Missingno code. Your choice!

4) Master Ball. Yes, everyone knows if you do the Missingno code you can easily duplicate it. OR you could save it and use it on Mewtwo in the Unknown Dungeon.

5) Item ball or Electrode? In RBY, Voltorb/Electrode are very sinister and disguise themselves as item balls. So be careful in case you get ZAPPED!

6) Safari Zone fenced Pokmon and Bill's House. If you are new to the Pokmon World just remember, seeing adds data to the Pok Dex. So take a look at Bill's favourite Pokmon and look at the ones caged in the Safari Zone, and you'll find that it adds pages to the dex. Plus, if you can catch those Pokmon in the wild, it will add data to the area, therefore allowing you to find them!

Triaspia February 18th, 2005 11:33 PM

these tips are good but dont forget to post the mew glitch

Triaspia February 18th, 2005 11:38 PM

i dont know about crystal but once you set the dogs free they have nothing to do with ho-oh

Doctor Zoidberg March 11th, 2005 1:36 PM

Why post it? There's a thread in here for that anyways...
And yeah, I am Dogbert. Sorry I haven't posted but I'm continuing now:

1) The irratating Eevee Factor. Did you go to Celadon City and find Eevee and say "Now what should I evolve it into?". Now unless you trade it to GSC for the duplicating trick, there's really only one Eevee. The only other way, I believe, is getting lucky through MissingNo cheat. Again, unlikely.
Anyways, here are a few things to consider:

Type: Water
Height: 3'3"
Weight: 64 lbs
Data: Lives close to water. Its long tail is ridged with a fin that is often mistaken for a memaid's.

Skill List:
----- Tackle
----- Sand Attack
LV27 Quick Attack
LV31 Water Gun
LV37 Tail Whip
LV40 Bite
LV42 Acid Armour
LV44 Haze
LV48 Mist
LV54 Hydro Pump

TMs: 06, 08, 09, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 20, 31, 32, 33, 34, 39, 40, 44, 50
HMs: 03

Type: Electric
Height: 2'7"
Weight: 54 lbs
Data: The Jolteon accumulates negative ions in the atmosphere to blast out 10,000-volt lightning bolts.

Skill List:
----- Tackle
----- Sand Attack
LV27 Quick Attack
LV31 Thundershock
LV37 Tail Whip
LV40 Thunderwave
LV42 Double Kick
LV44 Agility
LV48 Pin Missile
LV54 Thunder

TMs: 06, 08, 09, 10, 15, 20, 24, 25, 31, 32, 33, 34, 39, 40, 44, 45, 50
HMs: 05

Type: Fire
Height: 2'11"
Weight: 55 lbs
Data: When storing thermal energy in its body, the Flareon's temperature can soar to over 1,600 degrees.

Skill List:
----- Tackle
----- Sand Attack
LV27 Quick Attack
LV31 Ember
LV37 Tail Whip
LV40 Bite
LV42 Leer
LV44 Fire Spin
LV48 Rage
LV54 Flame Thrower

TMs: 06, 08, 09, 10, 15, 20, 31, 32, 33, 34, 38, 39, 40, 44, 50
HMs: 03

So think if that's the Pokmon you want.

2) Name Rater Information. The Name Rater located in Lavender Town changes your Pokmon's name. However, there are a few things you need to know:

The name rater does NOT change the names of traded Pokmon.

He has no PC in his house, therefore if you want to change more than 6 names, you MUST go to the Pokmon Center.

Those two are important to remember.

3) TMs at Celadon:
RBY doesn't seem to supply information about TMs at Celadon City Store. So you must by them for yourself. I have a list that may help:

TM 01: Mega Punch (A personal favourite of mine: Also found at Mt. Moon)
TM 02: Razor Wind (Takes to turns to charge, keep in mind: Also found at Silph Co.)
TM 05: Mega Kick (Not too accurate: Also found at Victory Road)
TM 07: Horn Drill (OH-KO: Also found at Celadon Team Rocket Hideout)
TM 09: Take Down (Recoil Damage after hit: Also found at Silph Co.)
TM 17: Submission (Recoil Damage after hit: Also found at Victory Road)
TM 32: Double Team (Raises evasivness: Also found at Safari Zone)
TM 33: Reflect (Halves physical attack damage: Also found at Power Plant)
TM 37: Egg Bomb (Normal Attack: Also found at Safari Zone)

Sorry that's all I could think of today. I'll try to do it more often in future.

Nicks April 6th, 2005 6:19 AM

I can remember, not catching Raikou and catching a shiny ho-oh, how ironic!

Nicks April 18th, 2005 3:16 AM

Just go to the offical glitch thread

Bullados April 25th, 2005 12:36 PM

That is only for Crystal, not GS.

Random tips...

Cyndaquil is the strongest starter, easily able to blast through the entire game just on his power alone. Moveset: Flamethrower, Earthquake, Return, Thunderpunch.

Unless you are going to challange Red, skip Sprout Tower: it is not essential to completing the Elite Four.

Get a Pokemon that can Surf before reaching Mahogany, it is easier to go right to the Red Gyarados there than left to Olivine and Cianwood, and the only way to go right is by having a Pokemon that can Surf.

Catch Gyarados, Bellsprout, and a Flying Pokemon. That's all you'll need for speed.

Save before EVERY Rival battle and EVERY Gym battle that you might not win, and there are several of them, even WITH Typhlosion in your aresenal.

The Rival battle in Burned Tower is not necessary: skip it.

that's bout all I can find right now, cya.

Pounce June 20th, 2005 10:18 AM

I'm replaying silver with the goal of catching all 251 (or 250, thanks to celebi =_=) and am stuck with the evolutionary stones. how are you supposed to evolve all of the Pokemon with only one copy of the fire/leaf/thunder/water stones? :/ I really don't want to attach them to a Pokemon and then duplicate it, because I want to do this as fairly as I can. ><

Bullados June 21st, 2005 6:43 AM

Not possible. However, in Crystal, you can get MANY copies of the Evolutionary Stones, including an unlimited supply of Moon Stones if you get Rock Smash.

Pounce June 21st, 2005 2:09 PM

yeah, I have plenty moon and sun stones. I'm guessing my best bet is to amass as many stones as I can in my gold/crystal games, attach them to pokemon and trade them over to silver =_= this was horribly planned out; nintendo took the trading requirement way too far. you already have to do it for machamp/golem/kingdra/etc... you shouldn't have to trade to get Pokemon to evolve with evolutionary stones, honestly. that should be a freebie. =_= ::shakes fist::

Mystic June 23rd, 2005 8:19 PM

It might sound wierd but I've got some tips for beginers too.

Every Game-
Potions and Super Potions are good, but they can be expesive sometimes. To cut cost corners and get better items, try the Vending Maching Drinks. Lemonade is the best one, its cheeper than a Super Potion and heals an extra 10 HP.

Every Game
Some times it pays off to stay in one spot and get some rare Pokemon. I know its not as good as its counterpart, Abra (Alakazam later on), but Ralts is a good Psychic to start off for R/S/E. Expecially if you don't want to trade for an Alakazam. Phanphy can be found in the morning on Route 45 (I think, it could be 46) on Crystal. Its one of the better Ground types and would be a good addition eairly in the game. Dratini and other dragon types have the Ice weakness (Exept for Kingdra, but thats G/S/C), picking one up and training one from the Safari Zone might not be a bad idea.

I'm one of those people that sometimes starts off with five Pokemon. One good one to fill in that space would be Zigzagoon. Its pickup is like an automatic Item Finder. Some useful items can be found by this ability. Phanphy also has it in R/S/E.

Every Game
Brute strength isn't everything. Attack and Defence are not the only good stat. Speed is another helpful tool that can make or break a match. Level up your Pokemon where not one or two of their stats are way higher than the others. Try to keep them balanced.

Every Game
Stat Raisers like Carbs, Iron, Calcum and others can help out weaker Pokemon trying to catch up to its friends. I don't sugest going out and spending every last bit of your money (unless you've got Infanite Money) on these items. They're expencive. At $9800 on the game, they're not really all worth it when they only raise the stat one or two points. There's alot of them laying out there in the Pokemon world. Just find them and use them.

Cutting corners on money to get other items like the Lemonade and finding spare items in the wild can help a person out sometimes.

Every Game
Think, and I mean honestly think about what move you would like to use on your Pokemon. Try to keep them from becoming 'HM Slaves'. Meaning don't load up all four of its slots for moves to use in the wild. I sometimes use an old Pokemon that has Cut, mainly because some of my Pokemon can't learn it or would be a weaker move to use. Some moves can make or break a match, like Stats.

Every Game
Watch out for your Opponet's Pokemon. Try to remember what Element that the Pokemon is and try to get the upperhand over it. If you're not careful, your opponet can get the upper hand over you.

Every Game
If you're pretty late in the game, or even in the middle. This little trick can help raise Pokemon, expecially Magicarp. Put the Pokemon in the front, then when the battle begins, quickly switch it for another one. The orignal Pokemon will get half of the experiance while the switched Pokemon gets the other half.

Games from G/S/C and up to today
Berries and hold items can also help out as much as Stats and strong attacks. Some Items, like the Quick Attack Claw, can put a little more of an edge on your Pokemon's attacks.

Bullados June 24th, 2005 4:37 AM

About the HM slaves, I'd STRONGLY recomment using HM slaves, ESPECIALLY if you're going with the one Pokemon approach that I love doing. In RBY, the best are Krabby and Sandshrew, who, between the two of them, can learn all HMs except Fly, which I usually stick on a random Pidgey. In GSC, I like using Bellsprout and Gyarados, who, again, can learn all HMs except Fly.
