    Me and one of my friends are going to play through the whole series of Pokemon, starting off with Pokemon Red/Blue. I want to make the most out of Pokemon Red with a real good team of Pokemon, do you guys have any suggestions? I'm probably going to start of with Charmander as my starter Pokemon.

      I'm not saying this is the best team but It sure of hell is a good one.

      Charizard as your fire
      Electabuzz as you electric
      Vaporeon as your water
      Dragonite as your dragon
      Victrebell as your grass
      Sandslash as your rock/ground

      If you can't trade with your friend from Blue to get Sandshrew then use Nidoking

      I've used this team before and trust me it's beast if you don't use them your missing out.

            Mix up types instead of using more than 1 type (like 3 fire types on your team)
            I use

              If you know how to obtain Mew, a Psychic type is really useful in this generation. If not Alakazam also works.

                you can use this team, it is truly beast!!
                try to use as many types as possible
                fire/flying - Charizard
                poison/ground - Nidoking
                water (almost ice lol) - Vaporeon
                fighting - Hitmonlee
                normal (and very flexible) - Tauros
                psychic - Alakazam (if you can't trade, settle for Mr. Mime or Kadabra)

                now you will never be at a full type disadvantage, and you can use moves of all types!! tauros and nidoking are the staples of this team because they can learn moves of almost any type and they are very strong physically, if you choose to use force over elements.
                -I/II gen are the only great gens; things get pretty ridiculous after that.
                -gen I/II have the best Pokemon and stories, by far!
                -All of these weird Poke's and typings in III/IV/V are unrealistic and don't look appealing!
                -The best thing about modern generations are the moves! I like Aerial Ace and Water Pulse.

                Gen I and II are SUPERIOR
                BY FAR

                You have plenty of suggestions right now, so I'll lock this. When you pick some Pokemon, use the in-game team help forum to help you with movesets and such. :) It's in the Battle Center. Also, next time you want team suggestions, please use the Q&A thread. There's one in each section for the different Pokemon games. You could also use in-game team help's Q&A for that as well. Good luck to ya!
