So after much training, struggling, saving, restarting and all around trouble...I have finally defeated LANCE round 2, with his level 72 SALAMANCE. With my TYRANITARS tank like stats (thanks to EV Training) I put a stop to him. Then jokingly, I again challenged RED (or TIM in FireRed) and I was half assing the battle until I started to actually win. With the use of many REVIVES and HYPER POTIONS and beat him, utilizing VICTREEBELL's Grass Knot against the clearly; over-weight SNORLAX of his. After finally beating him, boasting on FB, I went to collect my spoils in PALLET TOWN and SAFFRON CITY. I chose MUDKIP and BULBASAUR to fill out my balanced type'd tea. Replacing POLIWRATH with MUDKIP and VICTREEBELL with BULBASAUR. I started EV Training both of them immediately. So now I have battled every challenger and have pretty much beaten the game. Now I will buy a couple new games in attempt to finish off my POKeDEX.
