Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What are good ingame teams for Gold, Silver, and Crystal?

4 votes

>- Six Pokemon are required and while legendaries can be suggested, do remember that many people do not like using them because of how easy it makes the game. You might also want to keep the starter.
- Moves are required for each Pokemon.
- You should make sure to take into account that some people cannot trade, nor do they want to use cheating devices such as AR. As such, suggesting Porygon is not the best idea.
- Items, EVs, and Natures are not required.
- Please provide ample explanation.

This is the one I used. (All Pokemon can be obtained before battling Chuck)

Victreebel: Cut, Sleep Powder, Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb

Poliwrath: Surf, Submission, Hypnosis, Body Slam

Golem/Graveler: Explosion, Earthquake, Rock Smash, Strength

Arcanine: Extremespeed, Flamethrower, Rest, Sleep Talk

Xatu: Fly, Psychic, Night Shade, Flash

Ampharos: Thunder/Thunderpunch (Your Choice), Iron Tail, Toxic, Light Screen

If you like the starters replace Victreebel with Meganium : Body Slam, Reflect, Synthesis, Razor Leaf

Victreebel will help you catch Pokemon and take care of water and ground types. Meganium will be able to set up reflect to raise your tems defense and take care of water and ground types, decent chance to paralyze with body slam. Poliwrath is all out attacker and can also put Pokemon to sleep. Golem will earthquake through the oposition and then explode when it is at low hp. Arcanine uses the classic rest sleep talk strategy with STAB flamethrower. Xatu is your flyer. Ampharos can set up light screen and toxic if Meganium sets up reflect it can mini-stall.

Store desired HM slaves in the box until you need them.

just sayin this is G/S/C when there were no abilities
Sorry forgot.
I don't have my gold with me so I just used memory...
Edited
with poliwrath you can ditch hypnosis for waterfall since it is a great physical attacker and you have sleep pwdr on victreebell
Just in case you forgot, these are Gen. 2 games. That's means that whether a move is physical or special depends on the type. So in these games, all water type moves are considered special attacks.

only for crystal version

here is the team him using in crystal as its gonna be in the end of the game (with some alternative)


![enter image description here][1]

typhlosion : flamthrower, thunderpunch, iron tail, swift
basic starter sweep, but work damn great. if you want you can replace swift with strength or hyper beam (preferably strenght if neither your heracross or your donphan know strenght. also replace iron tail by earthquake if you dont teach it to heracross)
__
![enter image description here][2]

donphan : earthquake, defence curl, rollot, flail
heres a tip you can catch it in the morning at route 46 rhigt at the start of the game the only problem is that he run away but you can deal with it easily with some sleep powder or stun powder just catch a skiploom or bellsprout. you can replace flail by strength or take down but your gonna take a few hit when doing rollot so flail would be more powerfull ... but I didnt actually try it so I cant tell you for sure if this works well ... but anyway EARTHQUAKE KILL !!!
__
![enter image description here][3]

electabuzz : thunderbolt, icepunch, psychic, dizzy punch
another sweep that work really good and give some more coverage. you can get one before hall of fame and with dizzy punch in the egg you get from the man in the daycare, just save before you talk to him cause you can get either smoochum, magby, pichu, cleffa, igglybuff, tyrogue or elekid. ELEKID is the one you want so if the egg you got hatch and its one of the other turn off the game , turn it back on ,then talk to the old fart again until you get elekid. it can be long but its rewarded by geting the best electric type in the game ... after elekid evolved ... I welcome your angry comment below
__
![enter image description here][4]

fearow : fly, drill peck, steel wing, hyper beam
his your flyer.give him swift if you gave hyper beam to typhlosion if not then ... stick whit hyper beam. the good point about this guy is that he evolve and get stronger pretty fast but if you want one that is the same thing but stronger heres the obvious alternative

![enter image description here][5]

dodrio : fly, drill peck, tri attack, steel wing
i put it in alternative instead of fearow cause normaly by the time your gonna be able to get doduo or dodrio you should already got fearow at level around 40 or more and doduo gonna be something like 25 -30 or if your lucky youl get a dodrio at 30 ... but anyway both of them run away ... I think ... feel free to correct me if you know better
__

![enter image description here][6]

heracross : endure, reversal, megahorn, earthquake
ok first of all this guy praticaly made my turn insane trying to find im. the problem was that every spot that people on the internet were saying you could find I'm I couldnt . the only thing I found were spearow, aipom, and ekans I think it was a glitch ... so I basicly just said f*** the game and started a game in my silver version then when I could I traded away a skiploom with headbutt from crystal to silver and then I finally find one on route 31 I then just traded things away and leveled up heracross to be around the rest of my team ... AND IT WAS SOOOO DAMN WORTH IT CAUSE THIS GUY IS BADASS ... but dont ask my were to find one in crystal I dont do in the miracle department. by the way his a good choice for the hm strength just replace earthquake and teach it to typhlosion instead (see higher)
__

![enter image description here][7]

slowking : surf, psychic, flamethrower, disable or zap canon or ice beam
this one is basicaly your surfer but he can also put on a good fight if he got a good moveset ... and no I wont do an alternative with slobrow cause he got more deffense than special deffense and most of the type hes weak against are special attacking type (grass , electric , dark are special when bug , ghost are physical) so its better to have high special def then high def .zap canon or ice beam are just some more coverage while disable is more in the case you get stuck against the wall and need something to handicape your ennemi ... in other word nothing who might happens in-game so why the hell am I talking about this anyway...

so thats all I have to say there and I hopeit help you chosing your team bye

This is for Gold Silver and Crystal, Eruption, Blast Burn, Signal Beam didn't exist and Ampharos can't learn Ice Punch and Pidgeot can't learn Drill Peck or Twister in gen 2.
O3o o3O they can't learn those moves
Yep. They can learn those moves until Gen. 4. Heck, some of the moves did not exist in Gen. 2.

Meganium:
-Razor Leaf
-Synthesis
-Body Slam
-Toxic
enter image description here

Graveler:
-Rock Throw
-Earthquake
-Magnitude
-Rollout
enter image description here
Ampharos:
-Thunderpunch
-Thunder Wave
-Thunder
-Zap Cannon
enter image description here
Furret:
-Surf
-Rest
-Slam

enter image description here

Tyranitar:
- Crunch
- Rockslide
- Thunderbolt
- Earthquake
Feraligatr:
- Surf
- Ice Punch
- Blizzard
- Hydropump
Magneton:
- Zap Cannon
- Tri Attack
- Thunderbolt
- Lock-On
Gyarados:
- Dragonbreath
- Hyperbeam
- Hydropump
- Surf
Exeggutor:
- Psychic
- Toxic
- Giga Drain
- Leech Seed
Dragonite:
- Outrage
- Surf
- Thunder
- Blizzard
All these Pokemon, as well as these moves can be obtained within normal gameplay. No cheats or trading required. The Gyarados can be shiny (my preference) and that can be captured at Lake of Rage. You can replace one of the above Pokemon with Snorlax, which you find in Vermilion city. I have Body Slam, Rest, Rollout, and snore on mine at the moment, but I'm thinking of putting sleep talk on it. Hope this helps guys :)

This is my team. Personally, I relied a lot on my starter. My personal opinion, suggestions gladly accepted ^_^

1.Typhlosion (Sweeper)
-Swift
-Flamethrower
-Earthquake
-Thunderpunch
2.Jynx
-Lovely Kiss
-Dream Eater
-Ice Punch
-Blizzard/Psychic/Icy Winds
3.Pidgeot
-Wing Attack
-Fly
-Steel Wing (To take care of all the pesky rock types like onix,graveller,etc)
-Mirror Move
4.Victreebel
-Sleep Powder/Toxic
-Razor Leaf
-Giga Drain/Cut
-Sludge Bomb
5.Gyarados
-Surf
-Hyper Beam
-Hydro Pump
-Waterfall/Iron Tail/ Dragonbreath
6.Dragonite
-Outrage
-Blizzard
-Flamethrower
-Thunderbolt/Thunder

My sweepers are mainly Typhlosion and Pidgeot, although Jynx is surprisingly good at cleaning off the teams in front. Victreebel and Dragonite can be replaced with a Snorlax and a fighting/electric type Pokemon though this team alone is good enough to beat Red without a fuss. Now I'm raising my Raikou and he is proving to be a real beast! ;)

This might be late but whatever. It's pretty good but for Typhlosion you can put Return instead of Swift, because it's your starter. Jynx is good. Pidgeot is also good. I wouldn't suggest using Victreebel because it has a lot of weaknesses, so I would use Ampharos: Thunderpunch, Ice Punch (weakness), Thunder, and maybe Thunder wave for catching Pokemon or Earthquake for type coverage. You can get another earthquake by using the clone glitch. For Gyarados, I wouldn't suggest using it because Gyrados is physical, but in gen 2, water type moves are special, so it's kind of dumb. Lapras is a good choice: Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, and Body Slam/Perish Song/ Strength. Dragonite is good, but I would give it Wing Attack instead of Blizzard for PP, Accuracy, and STAB. But if you don't care about accuracy and only want power, blizzard is fine

This team will be valid no matter the starter. This is for Pokemon Crystal so if youre playing Gold or Silver some things may not be possible for you. Im listing HMs to the movesets so make sure yourself that you only give one of each of those to your Pokemon.

1 FIRE TYPE

Typhlosion: Flamethrower/Fire Blast, Thunder Punch, Strength/Headbutt/Cut, Dynamic Punch

OR

Arcanine: Flamethrower/Fire Blast, Return, Rest, Sleep Talk

2 WATER TYPE

Feraligatr: Surf, Whirlpool/Ice Punch, Dynamic Punch, Cut/Strength/Headbutt

OR

Gyarados: Surf, Waterfall/Whirlpool, Thrash/Strength, Zap Cannon

3 GRASS TYPE

Meganium: Cut/Strength/Headbutt, Synthesis, Razor Leaf/Giga Drain, Light Screen/Reflect

OR

Victreebel: Cut/Return, Razor Leaf/Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb, Sleep Powder

4 EGG POKEMON
Whatever Pokemon you got from the odd egg.

Wigglytuff: Strength/Double-Edge/Body Slam, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt/Thunder, Sing/Sweet Kiss

Clefable: Strength/Return, Moonlight, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt/Thunder

Electabuzz: Strength/Fire Punch, Thunderbolt, Ice Punch, Dynamic Punch/Light Screen

Jynx: Ice Beam, Sweet Kiss, Psychic, Perish Song

Raichu: Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Dynamic Punch/Iron Tail, Strength/Return

Im not listing Magmar since you already have Arcanine/Typhlosion as a fire type and I'm not listing Tyrogues evolutions either since later in this list therell be better options for a fighting type. If you got either of those two and not one of the other five (or you did get one of the other five but you just dont want to use the one you got) you could use one of these:

Espeon: Psychic, Morning Sun, Protect, Toxic

OR

Jolteon: Thunderbolt/Thunder, Baton Pass, Agility, Thunder Wave

5 - FLYER

Dragonite: Fly, Whirlpool/Waterfall, Thunderbolt/Thunder/Dynamic Punch, Ice Beam/Outrage/Thunder Wave/Extreme Speed

Since you get Dragonite pretty late before getting him you could use Fearow, Pidgeot or any other flying type you want before getting him.

6 - EXTRA

You can use pretty much anything you want. I definitely recommend Heracross.

Heracross: Endure, Reversal, Megahorn, Earthquake

Here are some other options though if you dont want him:

Pinsir: Strength/Return, Seismic Toss, Submission, Swords Dance

Scyther: False Swipe, Swords Dance, Steel Wing, Return/Slash

Graveler: Earthquake, Rollout, Explosion, Strength/Rock Throw/Headbutt

Machoke: Earthquake, Cross Chop, Seismic Toss, Strength/Return/Curse
