So, they surrounded the electric guy with rock types. Yeah, I think Vermilion City is secretly sending you a message.

Makes more sense than Koga surrounding himself by trainers who use psychic pokemon

Koga is a freaking NINJA! Misdirection is half the game in that career!
Reply
:iconmamaluigithedonutgal:
Actually, it makes perfect sense. When you know Koga uses Poison-type Pokemon, what's the first Pokemon you're going to send out into battle against his Gym's Trainers? Most likely a Pokemon that is NOT well-equipped for taking on some random Hypno at the very start of the Gym.

Reading their dialogue it's clear the trainers are trying to learn how to be better at illusions, hunting tactics, etc. All of which Koga brings to the table. But your point remains ;)

The only exception I can think of is Drayden/Iris. But, then again, you CAN catch a vanillish or vanilluxe by then.

That, and apparently, steel-types like Pawniard/Bisharp are resistant to dragon-type attacks. :3 I was pleasantly surprised to learn that~

It's just a big coinkydink that there's a bunch of Timburr, Throh, and Sawk near a Normal-type Gym, ain't it?

Plus you get given a coloured monkey that just happens to be super effective against whichever of the first gym leaders you face XD I got the red one (I forgot his name because I nicknamed him, so he's just Louis to me. Pansear?)

Let's see, what other Gyms are greatly inconvenienced by nearby wildlife...

Oh yeah, Blaine and Giovanni. Lots of Water-types in that sea!

Clair: The Ice-types in Ice Cavern
Roxanne: Shroomish
Elesa: Sandile
Clay: Vanillite and Ducklett
Skyla: Chargestone Cave
Viola: Fletchling
Olympia: Pumkpaboo/Phantump

Haha, I made the mistake of deciding to nickname all my Pokémon, so I ended up not very sure of some of the names afterwards. I remember everyone else's except Pansear and Simisear when he evolved XD

Agh, Wattson was so annoying! XD I think I had to evolve my Torchic to beat him

Haha I love how the games sometimes seem to be saying, "HINT. HINT!" The Route above Cerulean, which has a Grass-type, then Diglett's Cave. There are a bunch more but I can't think of them right now lol.

Oh! And in Yellow, with Mankey and Nidoran before Brock. Butterfree too.

I remember Dig was also grossly overpowered back then (probably had the same power as Earthquake in Gen 1). A well trained Dugtrio with Dig could almost always sweep any NPC team, save flyers.

Start with Bulbasaur.
Great against Brock and Misty, resists electricity, immune to toxic against Erika and Koga, and wonderful against Giovanni.
It only really misses out against Sabrina and Blaine but by that point you'll have a water type anyway and Sabrina's pretty much fair game to pretty much anything but a poison or fighting type. Just get something with decent SP. Defence and speed and you're set.

Depends on what generation you're talking about, Gen 1 or the Gen 3 remakes?

I forgot, isn't the Saur family capable of learning some ground-type moves as well? It would be stupid for Venusaur not able to learn Earthquake.
Reply
:iconantishipper:
AntiShipper Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
Venusaur can indeed learn Earthquake. It's also got very decent Special Defence, which is great against fire-types where all their moves are special.

BlondBeastBoy Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
I like how the Gen 1 starters are so versatile. I wish the newer gen starters were like that. The closest one was Gen 4's where Torterra could get a STAB with a ground-type move against Infernape; Infernape's fighting-type can get a STAB against the Steel-typed Empoleon, and Empoleon can easily learn any ice-type move leveling up and inflict 4x damage against Torterra.

:iconantishipper:
AntiShipper Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
How were they versatile? Charizard got double the advantages against Venusaur and Blastoise couldn't do anything to Venusaur unless it had an ice-type move.
G4 probably is the most versatile when it comes to starter vs. starter.
Reply
:iconblondbeastboy:
BlondBeastBoy Featured By Owner Apr 23, 2013
Yeah, but G4 was basically G1 and G3 combined. A quadrupedal grass type too heavy to move and a fire-fighting type. The only innovative starter was Empoleon, although I don't get the relation between penguins and metal.

What I meant is that Charizard's dragon-like appearance made it versatile to learn Dragon moves and Steel Wing against the rock-types. Blastoise was also versatile. The most disappointing starters were Gen 2's.
