Best answer

Typhlosion: Good choice. Great choice. The best choice. Here is what I would do + some other options:

Flamethrower: Ultimate Fire power, especially with Suuny Day.

Sunny Day: While Typhlosion can't learn Solarbeam, Sunny Day still hs two benefits, it weakens the power of Water and increaases the power of Fire.

Earthquake: Powerful to saythe least.

Toxic: Inflicts bad poison, which is always great.

Other options: Smokescreen, Swift, Dig, Fire Blast.

I think ill go with swift instead of toxic
Trachy, I found out that typhlosion can learn thunderpunch. I am going to teach it to him:)
My guide once again was wrong.
Hey trachy, Typhlosion can learn Solarbeam. Just to correct you.

Heracross: Once again, what I would do plus some other options:

Megahorn: Only Bug type attack in the game worth learning.

Earthquake: Is Earthquake.

Strength: Good power in an HM form.

Reversal: Sorry, I actually ran out of good moves.

Other options: You could repace Reversal with Rock Smash.

I only get 1 earthquake, how about shadow ball? Its physical.
I am sure it can't learn Shadow Ball in Gen ll, but you could try it.
I'm an idiot. :( Replace Earthquake for Endure.
Not a big endure fan, anythng else?
Attract is all I can think of.

Lapras: One of the best choices in Gen ll. I have an actually good moveset for it.

Thunder: Powerful move whose high power makes up for lower accuracy.

Ice Beam: If a Pokemon can learn Ice Beam by level up in Gen ll, teach it Ice Beam.

Surf: The best HM. STAB.

Confuse Ray/Swagger: Choose which way you want to go in confusing the foe.

Other options: Body Slam, Safguard, Hydro Pump, Blizzard.

Pidgeot:

Toxic: Inflicts bad poison.

Whirlwind: Make the foe switch out, then poison the entire team. Pideot won't survive long anyways, so this is what it should be used for.

Wing Attack/Fly: I know you like Fly and that it is an important HM, so I'm putting it in here.

Quick Attack: Priority STAb, finish off those weakened foes.

Other options: Sand-Attack, Mud-Slap, Mirror Move, Steel Wing, Hyper Beam.

Its Iron Wing in gold, not steel wing, and how about return?
Nope, still Steel WIng. Your game must be wrong. It is online. Return is fine. I would rather have Quick Attack, but Return is good also. I just put in Hyper Beam because Pidgeot is going to be really weak with th Toxic strategy done, so Hyper Beam, then it would faint.
Serebii.net is wrong once again.
XDD. Was Draco Meteor Meteoric Swarm in III gen?
Why don't you just make it one long answer like narwhals does.
He answered well, so don't vote him down ohioscyther:(
I do things differntly from narwhals. I made it like this so it is easier to distinguish between Pokemon.
actually i do have a Pidgeot and it survives well but it probably does so cause it is a lv100 one...
