Yellow:
Charizard - Flamethrower, Earthquake, Slash, Fly
Blastoise - Hydro Pump, Ice Beam, Strength, Dig
Venusaur - Solar Beam, Razor Leaf, Body Slam, Sleep Powder
Pikachu - Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Seismic Toss, Surf
Lapras - Ice Beam, Psychic, Thunderbolt, Body Slam
Snorlax - Hyper Beam, Body Slam, Fire Blast, Blizzard

Still haven't decided my team for my next run through Crystal. I tend to shy away from legendaries and stick to generation-specific pokemon. Makes it tough to choose a team lol. Also I can't trade or gameshark for Ampharos so I probably will have to play through without an electric pokemon (since I won't use Raikou, and the only other GSC electric pokemon are bleh)

Probably will make an exception for Suicune since it's the version mascot. Team will probably look like this:
Typhlosion - Flamethrower, Thunder Punch, Earthquake, ?
Heracross - Megahorn, Return, Reversal, ?
Suicune - Surf, Aurora Beam/Blizzard, ? ?
Espeon - Psychic, Bite, ? ?

other two might be Togetic, Donphan, Ursaring, or Skarmory

I don't remember much about my Blue version, except that I always used Blastoise. He's a Boss. Same thing in gold. I used Feralligatr. I do remember Crystal quite clearly though:
Meganium
Ho-Oh
Gyarados (Red)
Tyranitar
Skarmory
Butterfree

I'm about 90% sure about this team.

Haven't played through these games in a while... Well, I actually play through GSC quite regularly, but not my Yellow. The team on Yellow from way back when is:
Pikachu
Nidoqueen
Dodrio
Venusaur
Charizard
Blastoise

They're not all level 100 but Nidoqueen is definitely near level 90, and Dodrio and Pikachu are around the 80s.
The three starters are all above 50 but unsurprisingly I didn't have much need for them, with Nidoqueen :P

here is my team on crystal
Feraligatr lvl100
Charizard lvl 100
Aerodactyl lvl 100
Tyranitar lvl 100
Rhydon lvl 100
Nidoking lvl 100
I always liked to train pokemon that were dragons by appearance, but not by type. Very sentimental about Feraligatr, i had one as a "pet" when i was about ten. he was a lizard.
i trained them all with no rare candies and no cheating (traded for a young charmander). this was my first ever team and i never got rid of them. i have three all of the games for this reason! plus, i use roms most of the time anyway... lol

you must love the name sparky. that's admirable how you kept pika and jolteon, both of which red enjoyed using! classic.

Yeah, I reuse some nicknames because I feel they fit the pokemon best. For Pikachu I was thinking of Ritchie from the anime and Jolten was just made to be called Sparky.

I've got a team that I used to play through Red Version for the first time a couple of months ago (I started my Pokemon life with Yellow when I was a kid; never went backwards after that). I decided when I started that I'd try and use Pokemon that I've never really given much time to before; but (for some reason) I also try and catch as little Pokemon as I can on my way through.

Although my team was under-leveled, I thought it was well balanced (type-wise), and I was able to beat the Elite Four and the Champion with no Pokemon stronger than Level 53 (at the end). My Hall of Fame team:

Jolteon (L53)
Charizard (L41)
Pidgeot (L41)
Dugtrio (L43)
Lapras (L48)
Hypno (L45)

I'd love to hear comments!

Just beat Whitney on Crystal. Current team, all levels 15-17:

Leaf (Chikorita, soon to be Bayleef)
Ghosty (Gastly)
Swirl (Poliwag)
Fang (Growlithe)
Tunnerre (Elekid)
Phantom (Phanpy)

The main intent here is to use Pokemon I haven't before (I've only used Meganium and Poliwrath, but I haven't used the latter in a long time). My PLANNED team is supposed to be Meganium, Poliwrath, Arcanine, Sneasel, Nidoqueen, and Skarmory. But we'll see how Tunnerre, Phantom, and Ghosty turn out... but I still want my Sneasel!

What are some good moves for my pokemon on yellow? i am going to keep these pokemon, but need some moveset ideas for a couple of them.

NEEDS SERIOUS IMPROVEMENT = (Hitmonlee has been replaced with the stronger Machamp) No serious improvements needed
COULD USE SOME = Fearow
A LITTLE IMPROVEMENT = None
DOESN'T NEED IT, BUT FEEL FREE TO SUGGEST = Sandslash, Lapras, *Machamp*, Raichu, Charizard

Lapras - knows surf, ice beam, thunderbolt, body slam
Fearow - still working on a moveset, it knows drill peck, swift, take down, and leer
Sandslash - done, with rock slide, swords dance, slash, earthquake
Charizard - with flamethrower, slash, swords dance, fire blast (submission could be improved)
*Hitmonlee - needs big improvement; mega kick, jump kick, submission, meditate*
Machamp - earthquake, rock slide, submission, strength (permanant until GenII game is found)
Raichu - thunderbolt, take down, thunder wave, and thunder

I use Pokemon Stadium 2 to store any lose items i have before i start a new game, so i had a spare swords dance for both slash and char. I used thunderbolt on lapras, rock slide and earthquake on slash, swift on fearow, thunder on raichu, blizzard on a backup kangaskhan (unorthodox moveset)

i also have 2 spare mega drains and 3 solarbeams.

UPDATED : : I have pretty much finished, but could use some help ion fearow. still feel free to suggest on the others, but i am mostly done!

Feel free to post any suggestions. if this isnt the right thread then let me know and direct me to the right one.
Thanks!

****MACHAMP replaced the weaker HITMONLEE.****
