I'd go Thunderbolt > Thunder, because Thunder has lower accuracy and isn't reliable. But if that's not available to you, then Thunder will suffice. You're only really losing accuracy in choosing Thunder over T-Bolt. Shadow Ball should be fine. For your last two slots, I recommend Iron Tail and Thunder Wave. Jolteon doesn't look like it has a lot of options, judging from her gen II learn set. :(

Can anyone help me to make up a good movepool for Jolteon in Gold? I already have Thunder and Shadow ball, not sure what the other 2 moves should be.
Just expanding on Syd's advice, what Hidden Power does it have? If it something good like water, ice or grass, use it.

Can anyone tell me why this happened?
Happened to me when I turned it off in the middle of saving.

Is it true that in the Japanese Red and Green if you caught 150 Pokemon that the guy in celadon would give you Mew while in the American version you just got a diploma?

No, Mew is only obtainable in those games by using the Mew glitch in both US and Japanese games.

What kind of interference? Pikachu's voice is meant to sound like it's anime voice in low quality. If it's just not like a bad quality anime voice, being more specific could help.

Just wondering, but if you were to get rid of your Pikachu in Yellow, and get a different Pikachu, would the new one still follow you around? I've been thinking about that for awhile now...haha...Is there some secret code or something that the game puts on that Pikachu in order to make it follow you around??

I think it will. I'm pretty sure it's coded so that all Pikachu's will follow you. However, you cannot obtain another Pikachu in Yellow. And I'm sure (not 100% positive) that I heard that you couldn't trade Pikachu. Meaning you cannot obtain another one. Meaning you're stuck with your normal Pikachu. Correct me if I'm wrong. :)

It's not interference. Everyone's sounds like that. It's amazingly low quality. But what do you expect? It's for the Game Boy Color. Don't expect amazingly high quality haha. :) So don't worry; it's not your game.

Hmm, I heard you can trade it off or something to a R/B cartridge that way you can evolve it. And I heard you can catch a Pikachu in R/B and trade it Yellow, but i've never tried it for myself. I wonder if I do, if the traded one will follow me...

Yes, Lugia can be caught with any type of Ball. The chance of capture differs from ball to ball however.

yea pikachu can be traded to evolve, but Raichu can't follow you (my cousin regrets this decision to this day even though he "gave up" pokemon XD)

A Pikachu traded from Yellow to R/B can be evolved. If it is traded back, it will not follow you. A Pikachu caught in R/B that is traded to Yellow will not follow you, only Pikachu that are obtained in THAT Yellow will follow you either through the starter or by hacking. Pikachu from other Yellows will not follow you.

Ultra Ball will x2 it's catch rate.
Heavy Ball will have +20 catch rate.

These will give you the best chance.

Take a Black Appricon to Kurt in Azelea Town and after a day he will give you a Heavy Ball.

Weakening it to low health, giving it status, etc also helps.
This site should help you.

I'd say either Mt. Silver, since the wild Pokemon are quite high leveled, or you could try the E4. Their Pokemon are only at level 40-50. :)

sorry but you cannot :[. you can only trade between R/B/Y and G/S/C sorry. and R/S/E can only trade between FR/LG. And for the record, Crystal can only trade between Crystal if you use a gameboy advance. if you want crystal to trade to Gold or Silver, both games must be on the original gameboy colors D:
