What is the defunct moveset of Suicune (Atmacune) about?
Could you rephrase your question please? I don't really know what you're trying to ask. I'd be happy to try to help, but first I need to know what your question means. :)

Just curiosity, how long did it take you guys to finish Pokemon Red, blue or Yellow? and did you take the time to catch all the Pokemon or mainly just defeat all the gym badges and elite 4?

That's not really a question for this thread. It'd make a nice discussion topic imo, so perhaps you should make a thread for it. :)

Atmacune is a Generation II defunct moveset. I want to know why were these moves given to Suicune. Curse, Rest, Return, Roar.
Curse raises Suicune's decent defence stat, and in tandem with its great HP and Sp Defence, makes it very hard to defeat. Roar is used to phase any Pokémon it may struggle against or anything that might try to set up on it. Rest is used for HP/status recovery and Return will get boosted from the attack boost from Curse.

How would I determine whether a cartridge has its original battery? Sometimes I'm held back on playing them because I have no idea how much time the internal battery has before running dry.

(I got all but one of my generation I+II games used at various times)

I don't think you are able to know for sure. The best way to make sure should be to send the cartridge to a shop for the internal battery to be replaced with a new original one.

Missingno. is a glitch from Red, Blue, and Yellow. Therefore, even if it wasn't a glitch in the game it wouldn't have a shiny because shinies did not exist in the first generation.

hey i have an easy question. i am playing yellow on my gameboy (not an emulator), and i traded the starter pikachu for a pikachu from red that was also lvl 5. that way i have the freedom to to evolve him if i want to. the charmander was free, but how do i get the squirtle without my starter pikachu? i can always trade for one, but that is last resort. i'd rather get one the intended way, but whatever. i just wanna know if i can get one without starter pika.

IIRC, you just need to beat Lt. Surge to get the Squirtle. It's Bulbasaur who you need the starter Pikachu to get.

Squirtle - You need to defeat Lt.Surge.
Bulbasaur - You need your Pikachu to love you. As in the one that can follow you outside of your Pokeball and you can press A on it and it will show it's emotion. If it doesn't do that with your traded Pikachu, I don't think you will be able to get Bulbasaur.


My question: Pokemon Yellow - Elite 4.
Up to the elite 4, tried battling them, I can get up to the 4th elite but can't defeat him.

I was wondering if you could give me an idea on what moves to teach my Pokemon team, I currently have every single TM possible in Yellow from where I am up to. As I am aware of.

Team:

Pikachu lvl 52
Butterfree lvl 48
Hitmonlee lvl 54
Bulbasaur lvl 45
Charmeleon lvl 45
Dugtrio lvl 52

Thanks!

that's good, cuz i prefer a squirtle and dont even use the bulbasaur.

as for your problem, your moveset depends on your personal preference. do you like power or strategy?
also, save up major cash, stock up on items, and wait as late as possible to use them.
you might also want to evolve charmeleon and bulbasaur, as they are much more powerful once they are evolved. but again, that is personal preference!

You're better off setting up your own moveset for each of your Pokemon, then post a thread in the in-game team help section in Battle Center and you'll get much better answers there. If you post your team in that section without moves though, it will be against the rules. So at least attempt to come up with possible moves for each.

Give it Thunderbolt first and foremost, unless you gave it to something else...which...that would suck. If you don't have it, you could go for Thunder. The TM is in the Power Plant. Then perhaps Body Slam, just for general coverage and paralysis chance. Double Kick would provide some coverage as well, and to end off, Toxic or Thunder Wave. Jolteon doesn't have a lot to work with in Gen V unfortunately, so this was the best I could really come up with.

Pin Missile isn't half bad either. It'll do some decent damage to Psychic types like Alakazam.

I almost finished the game (I just need to battle Red) and I need to see/battle these Pokemon to complete the Pokedex:
Cyndaquil, Quilava, Kabuto, Omanyte, Donphan, Chansey, Ledian, and Skarmory.
I also can't trade (bare that in mind) so add these as well:
Politoed, Scizor, and Porygon2.

I want someone to tell me if any trainers/NPCs in the game have them, or if they have them un-evolved so they can evolve later, or where I can find them if they are rare somewhere...
Thanks in advance.

Check Serebii's PokeEarth. It lists all the trainers in the areas and what Pokemon they have.

I also want to note that it doesn't count as a complete Pokedex unless you have caught everyone Pokemon. Seeing them doesn't work in older games. That was a mechanic added in gen IV.

Cyndaquil and Quilava: I don't think you can encounter those without trading with someone else
Kabuto: You can only get it with the time capsule (trading with Gen I games)
Omanyte: Trade
Donphan: Only in Silver or Crystal
Chansey: Routes 13, 14, and 15 (But it's rare)
Ledian: Only in Silver and Crystal
Skarmory: Only in Silver and Crystal

As for the one you get from trades, I don't think you can get it without trading with other people.

Hope this helps

In Gold and Silver, it is a roaming Pokémon like Entei and Raikou. In Crystal it's in the Bell Tower.
