February 7th, 2009, 6:55 AM
Hi, Well I started Pokemon FireRed Again and I've been needing help, The second gym gave me some trouble, and so did Gary.

Here's my Team:

Wartortle LV21
Pidgeotto LV20
Mankey LV20

Could anyone tell me what Pokemon i should get that will be useful through the whole game And what Levels i should get for each gym + the League?

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

You have a pretty balanced team...one thing I did is I'd always catch Nidoran (male or female...or both) and I'd put them on my team. They were pretty helpful. I'm not sure, but you might be able to catch Pikachu which would be helpful for the 2nd gym. I haven't played FireRed in forever, though...

Well i guess i could catch both Nidorans, Thanks for the help.

You could also catch an Oddish since it is good against Misty and decent against Lt Surge. Also, towards the end of the game, it'd be good against Giovanni.

Oddish would be nice i guess. I've also Beat Misty.
Going to play more tomorrow.

EDIT: Nidoking and Nidoqueen are out of the question I'm not going back through That Darn cave!

I'd absolutely recommend an Electric-type for later in the game, which will come in very handy later. You could also try catching an Abra in Cerulean, which evolves into Kadabra and (if you can trade) Alakazam. I've never used the Abra line, but I've heard they're very handy.

As for levels, if you have a decently balanced team, you should be able to sweep through Vermillion Gym at maybe Level 20+. Keep leveling up as you go through the game, which shouldn't be too hard with the VS Seeker you get in Vermillion. Levels 45+ are around the range you want for the Elite 4 and Victory Road.

Misty, right. Well, it would have been smart to try to run into a Pikachu in Viridian Forest, but you cant go back there, i think...
If you can, try that out, if you cant, Nidorans work for me.

Mm, you've got a nice team.

Hm...these could be spoilers soo...(Read at your own risk!)

When you get to Celadon, go to the highest place of the Pokemon Mansion.
Find a pokeball at the top.
There will be an eevee, very useful, whether you choose to evolve it or not.
I found Vaporeon very useful, but do what ever you want or balances out your team the best.

At Saffron, there will be a dojo. Beat everyone, you can choose between Hitmonlee or Hitmonchan, very useful too.

I've also found that Butterfree is very useful for battle and capturing Pokemon. So whether you will be patient or not, catch a caterpie or metapod. Though it might be too late.

I was able to beat Misty with a Pikachu caught in Viridian Forest, but when I restarted, I didn't capture one. So I was able to beat her with my Butterfree, Pidgeotto, and Charmeleon. Mainly because I was alot of levels higher than her, I had the advantage dispite of type disadvantage.

Yep, Nidoran (male or female) are very useful in their final stages. I have an awesome Nidoking who crushes any oppenent thrown at him!!! *-*

Yep, one more thing...

Trust your team and good luck!
