I'll go with the consensus and say between getting my 6th and 7th Badge (usually because I get Lapras last at Silph Co).

The first time I played though Fire Red, I pretty much replicated my Championship Team from the original Red: Charizard, Raichu, Lapras, Dragonite, Alakazam, Machamp. (I originally had a Pidgeot instead of a Dragonite, but this was the only change I made)

Subsequent restarts and replays of both this Fire Red and an extra copy of Leaf Green that I got from my friend, I planned out my teams, each time using a different team.

I'm currently doing a playthrough of FireRed. I have 6/8 badges and my team is Charizard L46, Vaporeon L46, Dugtrio L46, Raichu L46, and Dratini L26. I'm still training the Dratini, but I don't know which Pokemon I should choose for my sixth member. Suggestions would be helpful and appreciated!

I rarely beat the game with a "Full Team" I use 5 for most of the game... and sometimes it takes me upwards of Pokemon Mansion to get even the 5th pokemon...

playing with less than a full deck removes the need for time consuming grinding, because your exp from fighting trainers is spread out over fewer allies.

also because I am picking and choosing my specific team, I never replace anyone...

the 6th slot might be filled with a Meowth pining for PPups using his PickUp ability. but he is removed before entering the E4...

I recently started a Nuzlocke challange and even without my desired team I still only have 5 pokemon and am ready to face the E4

I never get full Pokémon teams until after the final gym. Usually I only use about 3-4 Pokémon while going through the walkthrough, and then go back to certain places to find Pokémon that I want/need after getting the final gym badge.

I'm actually playing LeafGreen right now and I just beat Misty with 4/6 of my full team. I only need to catch Vulpix and get the Eevee in Celadon and then I'll have them all!

I didn't really get a full team until I got the 6th or 7th gym. I just leveled them all up and chose a balance of attack and speed.

Pretty far just before the Elite Four as far as I remembered because there was no 6th worthy poke before that time which could fill up my team...

I don't like having a large team early in the game so I generally try to spread the members out a bit. I normally have a full team around the 6th or 7th gym, although I'll occasionally catch my 6th in Victory Road.

I caught every Pokemon I saw that didn't have a Pokeball on the battlescreen, unless of course it was a evolution, so all of these pokemon were EXP shared and short run through high level wild grass and then to PC after evolve.

By the time I had a full actual team that I meant to use as my team was after the E4.

----------------after E4

When i was small. I also train one Pokemon only. That Pokemon was my starter Pokemon, Mudkip. I dont know how did i mange to beat the Elite 4 and Champion too, LoL! That strange!

Edited: Did not see the prefix.. So this is for FR/LG only? If so, it take me 10 hour or so to get my team. My team only have 3 Pokemon. LoL! Find it hard to rise 6 Pokemon..

My starter was squirtle, and I quickly caught a pidgey. I got a Pikachu in Viridian forest. Then I caught a Nidoran and a Mankey after Pewter city. I finished my team off by getting a dratini in the celadon game corner.
My final team was:

Tbh, I don't think I really ever had a full team because I was constantly boxing and changing Pokemon up until the Elite Four.

I generally have a full team by the third gym, at the very most. But I change it from there.
That being said, I can have a full team before I get Brock.

It took me quite a long time to get a full Pokémon team. I had to wait until I was finally able to beat the Pokémon league. When I defeated the league and was done with the main story, I shifted my focus to building a proper team for myself. My team consisted of Blastoise, Raichu, Ninetales, Dragonite, Breloom, and Metagross. I was able to beat many of my friends with this team, because it had a variety of types and the Pokémon were able to work with each other very nicely. ^^
for all distractions.

I gained my 4th and last team member in Fuchsia City, a Poliwag. I chose Charmander as the starter, caught Pikachu in Viridian Forest and Diglett in Diglett's Cave.
I never use a full team of six, the highest I've gone is five (Platinum). So yeah, after obtaining my 6th gym badge, I caught my final member.

I normally have a full team by the 5th gym leader and will maybe swap stuff around if I catch anything good in the Safari Zone.
