Yeah, Haunters are pretty decent, and you can get them next time you go to the Pokemon Tower.

Your team isn't that bad, but your movesets are. Placing two attacking moves of the same type (i.e. Flamethrower AND Ember on Charizard) is never a good idea. When will you ever use Ember instead of Flamethrower? Never, and that only limits the effectiveness of your Pokemon. You also don't need 6 Pokemon. All that really does is slow you down since you end up wasting time raising them equally. I would stick with four or even five tops and carry along your HM slaves. Anyway, my suggestions in bold:
Quote originally posted by dH:
Okay so i just restarted my pokemon fire red 1 week ago, and so far i'm going to the 5th gym with:

Level 43 Charizard: Flame Thrower/Ember/Fly/Metal CLaw

Personally, I wouldn't use Charizard. Its strengths just don't outweigh its weaknesses. I would leave this spot open until you can pick up Aerodactyl, which is MUCH better:

Aerodactyl
Trait: Rock Head
- Aerial Ace
- Double-Edge
- Earthquake
- Rock Slide

Straight up physical attacker and much more powerful than Charizard.

Level 45 Snorlax
- Body Slam
- Rest
- Sleep Talk/Curse
- Shadow Ball

Special attacks on Snorlax isn't helpful, while physical attacks really are. Plus, it takes advantage of its strengths. Since it is very strong against special attacks you can switch it in and we know what special attackers are typically prone to - physical attacks. Personally I would go with Curse, but you have to breed for it so that is out unless you have another game that you can trade it in. Sleep Talk is a great option when you combine it with Rest. Snorlax takes damage/status, use Rest to remove it and then Sleep Talk to still attack while you are asleep. Shadow Ball is for Ghosts, of course, making the need for Haunter/Gengar unnecessary.


Level 43 Raichu:
- Focus Punch
- Substitute

- Thunder Bolt
- Thunder Wave

Again, two attacking moves really isn't necessary. Go the SubPunch route instead to maximize its effectiveness.

Level 43 Kadabra:
- Calm Mind
- Psychic
- Recover/Fire Punch/Ice Punch
- Shock Wave/Thunderpunch

Not the best moveset unless you can breed the punches. Without it, Recover is your best option and then Shock Wave to give it another boosted attack. Hopefully you can evolve it to Alakazam.


HM Pokemon Meowth, and soon Lapras.

Lapras
- Ice Beam
- Sing/Protect/Toxic
- Surf
- Thunderbolt/Protect/Toxic

Lapras will be your bread and butter. Great stats and very versatile.


Can someone tell me what 6th pokemon should I get and what level should each pokemon be around for each gym?

And also, if the moves are garbage, can you help replace some with better ones?

Ty dH~


Edit: Where should I train each pokemon?
Your Pokemon levels are pretty high for the 5th gym, to be honest. I normally go into the "elite' 4 at about Lv45. Too many people put more emphasis on leveling up than acquiring effective movesets. With an effective moveset your Pokemon doesn't have to be so high in level, which in turn cuts down the time it takes you to finish the game. Good luck.

is it true that if you run into the legendary beast (fire red) and you use mean look and then it uses roar and you think you're fine so you go do something and save, then does that mean you can't find it again?

Don't worry, once you find the dog, it'll always be there, but it will be harder to get. This is due to the dog is fleeing all the time.

I took out all the HMs your Pokemon have. These should be with your HM Slaves (your Meowth and Lapras).

Level 43 Charizard: Flamethrower/Slash/Metal Claw/Aerial Ace
Level 45 Snorlax: Body Slam/Yawn/Rest/Mega Punch
Level 43 Raichu: Thunderbolt/Substitute/Brick Break/Thunder Wave
Level 43 Kadabra: Psychic/Calm Mind/Recover/Reflect
HM Pokemon Meowth, and soon Lapras.

Can someone tell me what 6th pokemon should I get and what level should each pokemon be around for each gym?

You don't really need a sixth Pokemon, but if you really want the sixth one, I'll give you my recommendations : I would recommend obtaining a Hitmonlee / Hitmonchan. They are very versatile Pokemon to have in your party. Worthwhile shall I say.

And also, if the moves are garbage, can you help replace some with better ones?

I did.

My comments about your team are in bold. I switched out some moves and those are going to be in red.

If you're talking about FR/LG, you have to clear out the Team Rocket members in Pokemon Tower and then talk to Mr. Fuji. He'll give you the Poke Flute and then the Team Rocket guy won't be in front of the Silph Co. door anymore.

You shouldn't create this thread just for two questions - Thats what the Q&A Thread up on the top is specifically for.

  1. Clear the Team Rocket grunts out of the Pokemon Tower.
  2. Mr. Fiji should give you the PokeFlute after you 'rescue' him from Team Rocket.

Agreeing with JD, and try not to use multiple letters as shown in your title and post.
It's annoying and hard to read.
Clear TR outa the Pokemon Tower, and then talk to Fuji. He'll give it to you.

I imported a Charizard with Blast Burn from Leaf Green and tried to breed it with a Ditto to get a Charmander with said awsome move, but alas, the move did not pass along, and Charizard only had Dragon Claw and Blast Burn, but it still didn't move on. What am I doing wrong??

It's simple, really, Charmander can't learn Blast Burn via breeding, try Flare Blitz instead.

Fire Blitz didn't exist in Gen III, right, and if not, one I'm stuck in Gen III, and two, the is a Gen III area, sooooo, get in the mind set.

Ok, ok, calm down. You did just say you imported a Charizard from LG and so I simply assumed that you meant you imported it to D/P/Pt.
Either way, there's no possible way for you to get a Charmander with Blast Burn.

You can't trade eggs in Gen 3, right? That was only introduced in Gen 4.
A trustworthy answer would be very appreciated.

No you can trade eggs, but you can't trade eggs from the Gameboy Games to the Gamecube Games.

I'm playing FireRed and I need to know where a good place to train a Lv.26 Rhyhorn is.
It knows Strength, Stomp, Fury Attack & Shock Wave and I need to train it to Lv.40.

I've been trying to train him on water type Pokemon, but he's 4x weak and whenever they get a chance they knock him out in one hit.

Blast Burn, like Hyper Beam, isn't worth using. Flamethrower does more damage attacking twice in two turns (95 AP x 2) than Blast Burn does attacking once in two turns (150 AP x 1). Blast Burn is also only 90% accurate, while Flamethrower is 100%. Consistency is what you really want. Otherwise, use Fire Blast. It is 120 AP and 85% accurate. which isn't much off Blast Burn and you aren't screwed for a turn.

BTW - It is impossible to import Pokemon from DPP to Adv Gen.

Ugh. Shock Wave on Rhyhorn? Its Base SAtk of 45 is just terrible. The only way you can effectively train against Water-types is to increase its level. Personally, I would slap an Exp Share on it, and then switch out immediately to an Electric/Grass-type. Doing this will give Rhyhorn 75% of the Exp points and will actually save you time from having to heal that thing over and over. Hopefully you will be improving that moveset too. More Earthquake and Rock Slide and less Normal or special attacks that it gets no benefit from.

They are both uber, regardless of items in Generation III. However, Latias (without Soul Dew) has been bumped down to OU in Generation IV.
