Hm, so I was watching a certain YouTuber's Red Randomizer playthrough, and when his Arcanine killed something with a physical attack, the next Pokémon out was Hitmonlee. Then the LP'er healed, but Hitmonlee used Counter, which worked and killed the Arcanine. He even questioned what was going on, since Counter should have failed on a turn that he healed.
This is what Bulbapedia says on Counter in Gen I:

Quote originally posted by Bulbapedia:
If the last amount of damage done before the use of Counter is greater than 0 and was dealt by a Normal-type or Fighting-type attack (except Counter), Counter will do twice as much damage to the opponent.
Hope this helps.

Hey guys, I'm looking for everyone's opinions on who I should raise as my second pokemon besides my starter Pokemon in my Crystal run. I chose cyndaquil as my starter. Leave your comments on who and why. I appreciate the feedback.

Well Growlithe shares the same typing as Typhlosion and performs similarly so I'd count him out. You want variety on your team after all! Of the three Abra is an absolute monster so I'd go with it! Johto is full of Poison types thanks to Team Rocket so Machop struggles through those parts. He does help you with Pryce though. I suggest raising them both! :)

I agree with Luke! Abra is definitely the best of the three and can function as a Kadabra throughout the game without the need to evolve into Alakazam. Machoke might fall off if you are unable to trade and evolve him. If you have a second GBA/someone to help you evolve though then you shouldn't have any issues! good luck [:

Have to agree with the other two. Choosing Cyndaquil makes Growlithe useless, and then later in the game Machoke is pretty much useless and you'd be better off using one of the hitmon trio whereas Kadabra is actually still pretty decent without needing to be evolved.

If you're looking for "the best," the answer is Abra and it isn't even close. In game, the answer is basically always Abra, to the point of being annoying. RBY? Catch it after Misty and own. GSC? Catch it around Goldenrod and demolish. Ruby/ Sapphire/Emerald? Available shortly before the fighting gym - also pick one up for an easy play through. FR/LG? Remakes of RBY so...duh. The trend even continues in 4th gen and doesn't pause until Black/White because you know...you can't catch it. G/S/C only amplifies Abra's absurd OP-ness by making it purchasable at the game corner AND selling all three elemental punches at the department store (they were still special moves back then), thus negating the biggest downside (training when it only knows Teleport) AND providing crazy good attack coverage for a pokemon with good enough in game special attack to not even need that coverage. /endrant

Hey everyone. For those who have completed their Unown Dex in Crystal, how do I go about getting it in alphabetical order? I read on Bulbapedia that it is suppose to happen automatically... It's driving me crazy to have them in the order I caught them instead. The scientist even recognizes that I caught all 26 so I know I'm not missing any.

Hi, I just started playing Crystal and I got an experience share. But is it consumable? Or can I use it multiple times? I've looked it up, but no site gives clear information. If I can only use it once, I don't want to use it.

Its a held item that stays with the pokemon that holds it. So you won't consume it
