PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I was playing Pokemon Blue when I found out that none of my Pokemon can learn HM01 Cut. What is a good Pokemon to teach Cut to?

In the old games I'd never bother teaching the Pokémon in my core team the HM's, except for fly maybe.  Otherwise, I'd just get a HM slave or two. Bringing the one I need out of my pc to get through a particular part of the story. I figured that's what everyone did.
That's exactly what Farfetch'd is good at doing.
Yeah, and I'm pretty sure you can get one as early as viridian forest which is a while before you get HM01 if I remember correctly... might have to back- track a bit unless you just say screw it and grab a Rattata for now to get you where you need to go.
In RB, you get it from a person in Vermillion City.
Blue version doesn't have a move deleter. Just pick up an HM slave and toss it once you beat Surge, unless you're particular about getting the odd item here and there.

I would recommend bell-sprout, since it proves to be quite helpful and you can get it on route 6, north of Vermillion. It is also one of the better grass types of the game.

Why would you have mega drain when you already have razor leaf for grass coverage (and super potions for healing)? Why would you have toxic at all?

>Charizard - Cut, Strength, Fly (Y)
Slowpoke/Slowbro - Surf, Strength, Flash
Krabby/Kingler - Cut, Surf, Strength
Lickitung - Cut, Surf, Strength
Mew - Cut, Fly, Surf, Strength, Flash

I would go with Krabby. And if you need, farfetched can learn fly.

Krabby isn't available yet.
