    Just finished the game, beat red under-leveled with

    Feraligatr (Lvl 51) Surf, Screech, Return, Iron Tail

    Bellossom (Lvl 50) Sleep Powder, Sludge Bomb, Petal Dance, MoonLight

    SandSlash (Lvl 47) Strength, EarthQuake, Defense Curl, Rollout

    Jynx (Lvl 48) Ice Punch, Body-Slam, Lovely-Kiss, Psychic

    Umbreon (Lvl 48) Curse, Shadow Ball, Flash, Toxic

    Noctowl (Lvl 47) TakeDown, Hypnosis, Dream Eater, Fly

    The battle with Red lasted nearly an hour...mostly because I had nothing against Blastoise and Snorlax. My plan for Blastoise was petal dance with bellossom, but got one shotted with blizzard. Had to stall it out with umbreon + toxic.

    Snorlax was even worse. Spammed flash 6 times with umbreon so it didn't rip through my team. Toxic did nothing because he had rest. Shifted through my team and had nothing that could damage it. Finally used screech with Feraligatr, and it was enough to chip it to death. Was actually going to have to forfeit.

    Only used one revive the entire match, and it was because the snorlax cheated through -6 accuracy and body slammed me to death. Very frustrating but still overcame it

      Grind and grind I guess. Do not avoid any trainers or flee from any battles.

      Decided to just try fighting Red with my team since I see people winning him with levels way lower than mine and I won him. He was easy pesky for the strongest trainer in GS lol-- Took him out within 5 minutes. Snorlax was annoying though but Rock Smash really helps lower his Defence stat.

        Badges: 3. Just like in 2001, Whitney's effin Miltank gave me a hard time. I had to Rockstall it using my Onix and Screech in order to take down the Fat B-Word.

            Just reached Ecruteak!

            My team's been juggled around since I'm super indecisive about who I want to bother training since exp is so precious in this game with the low-level wilds, but this is who I have atm:

            - Water Gun
            - Ice Punch
            - Bite
            - Scratch

            - Horn Attack
            - Rock Smash
            - Tackle
            - Endure

            - Peck
            - Tackle
            - Hypnosis
            - Foresight

            - Thundershock
            - Tackle
            - Growl
            - ---

            (hold) Miracle Seed
            - Absorb
            - Sweet Scent
            - Poisonpowder
            - Sleep Powder

            (hold) Hard Stone
            - Magnitude
            - Rock Throw
            - Tackle
            - Defense Curl

            Honorable mention goes out to Arbok too, and I'm currently breeding Zubat with Gust and Quick Attack because I love Crobat, but just found out that it doesn't really learn any Poison-type moves so I probably won't use it in the long run :(

              Badges: 4. Just kicked Morty's butt and it was no picnic. That pesky Gengar kept pulling the Hypnosis/Dream Eater combo, so I had to shuffle in Quilva to finish the ghostly jerk off. Why are Johto's gym leaders so difficult? Kanto's are so much easier to beat.

              Also, I have a Ditto and Tauros in the day care center. I plan to get them out once they become high level monsters.

                Current team:
                - Croconaw (lv. 27)
                - Arbok (lv. 26)
                - Magnemite (lv. 19)

                Surprisingly, I decided to keep my Ekans.

                  I finished both versions. Both my teams are around level 50.

                  My Gold team was assembled as I went along:
                  • Typhlosion
                  • Heracross
                  • Crobat
                  • Ampharos
                  • Dewgong
                  • Golem

                  My Silver team, on the other hand, was assembled after a few trades between my completed Gold game and R/B/Y, by sending eggs to the Silver game I had just started.
                  • Feraligatr
                  • Venusaur
                  • Charizard
                  • Sneasel
                  • Rhydon
                  • Magneton

                  Friend codes:
                  Electric-type Safari: 4468-2370-5617 (Electrode - Pikachu - Galvantula) | Dark-type Safari: 1134-8222-3179 (Nuzleaf - Cacturne - Liepard)
                  PM before adding. If you don't mention which code you added, I will NOT add you back.

                      Thoughts on this squad? Any glaring vulnerabilities? My team is in the high 20s/low 30s levelwise.
