PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A
0 votes

Okay, so I just started playing Fire Red and I want to create a squad of all Dragon or Flying type Pokemon.
I'm set on which 6 I want, but I'm running into some strategy issues with movesets.

I need to be able to put Cut, Strength, Surf, and Fly on these guys. (Flash, Rocksmash, and Waterfall not essential but good if can be incorporated)

Im trying to make Gyarados into a beast, but I keep coming up with movesets of special type rather than physical, so I need to rework him

Also Dragonite is causing me trouble for the opposite, He can learn so many powerful specials not sure which to use.

Any Ideas?

Here are a list of possible HM Moves each Pokemon can learn:
Charizard - Fly, Cut, Strength, Rock Smash
Aerodactyl - Fly, Strength, Rock Smash
Gyarados -Surf, Rock Smash, Strength, Waterfall
Dragonite - Fly, Strength, Cut, Waterfall, Rock Smash, Fly
Articuno - Fly, Rock Smash
Zapdos - Fly, Flash, Rock Smash

As you can see, basically Dragonite and Gyarados can learn all the moves you need to learn. You can also evenly spread these moves among your Pokemon (so you don't have one as entirely an HM Slave). Here is a good mixed moveset for Dragonite: (I'm not sure what items were available back then, but I'll still post it)

Dragonite@Leftovers/Life Orb
Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: Not necessary if In-game
Any Attack Increasing Nature (preferably Lonely)
- Dragon Dance
- Fly (HM Move)
- Thunderbolt / Ice Beam
- Earthquake / Dragon Claw / Outrage

A good moveset for Gyarados could be:

Gyarados@Leftovers/Choice Band/Life Orb
Ability: Intimidate
EVs: Not necessary if In-game
Any Attack/Speed Increasing Nature
- Dragon Dance
- Waterfall (STAB; Physical)
- Surf (HM Move)/ Earthquake
- Ice Beam / Thunder Bolt
