Dragonite’s flaw, if it has one, is that it’s speed could be better. That’s why Thunder Wave is a popular option for its moveset since paralysis all but ensures you go first for the rest of the battle(while also throwing in the chance the opposing Pokemon doesn’t move).

    Also Hyper Beam, while strong(150 power), has 90 accuracy(meaning it has the chance to miss). Generation 1 has a niche thing with Hyper Beam too as you don’t have downtime if you KO a Pokemon with the move. Fail to do so and the normal recharge downtime comes into play.
    Yeah, also dragonite cannot learn earthquake in gen 1 and 2, but it can learn in the gen 3 games, same as gyarados, primeape, venusaur and aerodactyl, i do know it's a flying type, but if it's a dual dragon-flying type, then why it learns ground attacks, because flying types are not suposed to learn those attacks.

      Pokemon logic in a nutshell. I mean Dragonite has wings and Flying typing and yet can’t learn Fly in Generation 1. FRLG though, it can do so along with other useful moves(including a cache of Dragon moves). Have to remember that Generation 1 is nothing like the games that came after. Typing, movesets, genders, abilities... so much has been added that you can’t really compare it to the games that came after them. Even FRLG is like an entirely different game.

        True, and gyarados is a water-flying dual type and can't learn fly too, same as charizard, or that rhydon, nidoqueen, nidoking, snorlax, kangaskhan, lickitung, tauros, dragonite, mew and pikachu being able to learn surf.

          Hiya!

          My current generation 1 team:
          Rhydon 52 - whydon
          Taurus 49 - rage
          Golduck 54 - amsia
          Pikachu 60 - bzzt
          Victreebel 57 - cutu

              My current team, with pokemon stadium in mind.

              Rhydon -50
              Zapdos - 50
              Egg - 50
              Jolteon -50
              Alakazam - 50
              Starmie - 50

              Got a few extras, Gengar, Hitmonlee and Articuno, but im not sure if they can replace one of the above in R2, Hitmonlee cant really take a hit and is only good against normal/rock. Gengar is nice in certain matchups, so is Articuno.

                      The last time I played Red I ran it solely with Tangela (Trainer-Flew for it pretty early) and Tauros because I was curious to know just how strong their statlines were. The answer was: extremely strong ;D

                          Just got Pokémon Blue on the 3DS Virtual Console.

                          Here is my team so far.

                          -Ivysaur (Groot)
                          -Pikachu (Mickey)
                          -Raticate (Brisby)
                          -Gyarados (Triton, although I only put in the T. I will fix that once I get to the Re-Namer.)
                          -Sandshrew (Spike)

                                Added Vulpix to my team to have an advantage against Erika later.

                                I named her “Phoebe”, since I am fond of Adventure Time.

                                Sandshrew and Pikachu have evolved, and I properly nicknamed my Gyarados this time.

You can beat Brock with Double Team(abuse that move if you can.

                                  Sandshrew and Pikachu have evolved, and I properly nicknamed my Gyarados this time.

                                    Oops, it's only 9 that's almost level 10. The Mankey is just for Brock then I'm getting arid of him^^

                                      I have evolved pretty much everyone on my team.

                                      -Venusaur (Groot)
                                      -Gyarados (Triton)
                                      -Ninetales (Phoebe)
                                      -Sandslash (Spike)
                                      -Raichu (Mickey)
                                      -Raticate (Brisby)

                                      I just love nicknames, even if it came at the cost of multiple save files for the devs.

                                      As for my progress so far, I am getting a bunch of Pokémon at the Safari Zone to get some useful items from Oak’s Aide.

                                      I will train Spike a bit more in order to confront Koga.

                                      Last time I played VC Red, my team was:



                                      I tried to balance my old favourites (Nidoqueen, Poliwrath and Aerodactyl) with some new Pokémon that I wanted to use for a long time.

                                        Why tangela in your team?
                                        If you wanted a grass-type, you had choosed bulbasaur as your starter or to catch some in the grass.
                                        I just don't get it.

                                        Tangela was on my to-use list for a long time - pretty much since the release of original RBY.
                                        I originally started with Charmander, but decided to swap it for Growlithe before 3rd Gym.

                                            Eh I’d just use Butterfree if you don’t intend to use Mankey beyond Brock. Just know that your rival’s Eevee is a Normal Type(hence Mankey would be useful in three rival battles) and Rattata, Meowth, Clefairy, Jigglypuff and other Pokemon Mankey would be effective against lie ahead.

                                              My Pokemon Yellow Randomized Nuzlocke team which i finised up with ( None of them died later on, early game was a massacre due to Gen 1 mechanics allowing so much bullmuk)

                                              bRock the Nidoking ( A Geodude which evolved into a Nidoking)
                                              Level 49 Cut - Hyper Beam - Rock Throw - Sludge

                                              Spring the Hitmonlee ( Caught as an Hitmonlee)
                                              Level 50 Meditate - Double Team - Hi Jump Kick - Toxic

                                              Flizzy the Charizard ( Evolved from a Gloom)
                                              Level 47 Flamethrower - Fly - Slash - Earthquake

                                              Surpriser the Cloyster ( Evolved from a Haunter turned Pikachu)
                                              Level 49 Surf - Thunder - Ice Beam - Night Shade

                                              Potato the Kabutops ( Caught as such)
                                              Level 49 Strength - Ice Beam - Absorb - Substitute

                                              Spoonfull the Alakazam (Caught as such)
                                              Level 54 Psychic - Thunder Wave - Reflect - Recover



                                              The Elite 4 was rather easy. I kept some safeguards against certain typings and the only difficulty was in early game where Sing was rampant due to some reason and every wild pokemon kept wrapping me. Also Mewtwo was a serious threat till i got Spoonfull who could simply shrug him off while Toxic did its work.

                                              A fun run honestly, after the early 20 Levels.

                                              P.S The Mons had full HM compatibility to avoid getting locked out of progression. I think i only had to abuse that to teach Strength to Potato.

                                                I beat the Elite Four and Champion last night.

                                                This is my final team.

                                                1. BluDiamond the Articuno
                                                Level 57: Blizzard, Ice Beam, Fly, Bubblebeam

                                                2. Spike the Sandslash
                                                Level 47: Cut, Earthquake, Dig, Slash

                                                3. AA-J the Zapdos
                                                Level 52: Thundershock, Drill Peck, Thunder

                                                4. Groot the Venusaur
                                                Level 50: Mega Drain, Toxic, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf

                                                5. Sunset the Moltres
                                                Level 50: Peck, Fire Spin, Sky Attack

                                                6. Triton the Gyarados
                                                Level 46: Blizzard, Hydro Pump, Strength, Surf

                                                Since the level distribution sucks in Victory Road, I decided to catch all three Legendary Birds to help me out. I only struggled with Agatha, due to her Gengar’s Hypnosis rarely missing and hitting very often, as well as a strong Night Shade due to high level.
