    Legendaries excluded, because i consider it gutless
    to beat the game by using them.

    1. Squirtle/Wartortle/Blastoise
    The most versatile of the starters. Can learn ice moves,
    which are OP in gen1, considering they beat all flying
    type pokemon, even if their second type is supposed
    to be strong against ice. Also, you won't have to worry
    about having to catch a pokemon that can learn SURF.

    2. Pidgey/Pidgeotto/Pidgeot
    Sand Attack is badass in Gen1, where there are not
    many antidotes against accuracy reduction strategies.
    Mirror Move might also help. And, of course, he can
    learn Fly HM, which is both good for battle and useful
    for transportation.

    3. Rattatta/Raticate
    Hyper Fang and Super Fang rule. Also, it can learn
    several elemental attacks, which make it pretty
    versatile.

    4. Drowsee/Hypno
    Psychic are so OP at Gen1 that you ought to include
    at least one. You can find it after Vermillion and include
    it in your team without too much grinding. Actually, i'd
    prefer Abra/Kadabra/Alakazam, because it can heal
    itself, but, unfortunately, it cannot fully evolve unless
    you can somehow trade it and get it back.

    5. Eevee/Jolteon
    The only Gen1 pokemon that can super effectively attack
    psychic pokemon (Pin Missile) without being weak against
    them itself. Get it at Celadon, evolve it right away, go fight
    the army of fishermen/birdmen at Silence Bridge and you
    can make it strong in no time.

    6. Growlithe/Arcanine
    I can't imagine a pokemon team without the fire element.
    Considering you can catch it right before going to Celadon
    Gym, where it can easily gain huge amounts of EXP, it's
    the best piece to complete your team.

      Really good team but I'd drop Raticate. Attacks like Bubblebeam/Thunderbolt/Ice Beam are sort of wasted on it. They'be be better for someone like Clefable. I'd try someone like Rhydon instead for some defense.

      My team has to be one of the best I've ever had as far as playing through Gen 1.

      Venusaur
      Mega Drain
      Double Edge
      Toxic
      Leech Seed

      Raichu
      Submission
      Body Slam
      Thunderbolt
      Thunder Wave

      Mew First time I ever used a legendary but it's also the first time I ever did the Mew trick so I figured I'll use him :)
      Fly
      Psychic
      Ice Beam
      Soft Boiled

      Dragonite
      Surf
      Fire Blast
      Blizzard
      Hyper Beam

      Snorlax
      Rock Slide
      Body Slam
      Earthquake
      Strength :(

      Lapras
      Psychic
      Surf
      Ice Beam
      Thunder

        Where is Double Team? That attack is totally badass in Gen1.
