asked by
So this is Pokemon from the first 150, but with Gen V moves etc? Why no Tauros? He was a boss in first gen.
^^ Excatly what pokemaster said !!
Yep Gen I Pokemon with Gen V moves. And while Tauros might have been good in Gen I, not so much in Gen V.
no mewtwo or mew????? both can be caught in gen 1, possible introduction of gengar or hypno due to the hypnosis/dream eater combo, gyarados is very good and can be versatile also dragonite?

I would think remove Aromatherapy for Toxic, get rid of Fake Out, and maybe change out Bonemerang for E-Quake.

Aromatherapy provides team support, getting rid of status. In this way Alakazam, Arcanine, and Hitmonlee won't be crippled by Paralysis, Hitmonlee and Marowak won't be crippled by Burn, Toxic won't bring down any of my Pokemon, and Sleep and Freeze are no danger at all. Plus, its unlikely Chansey will be able to hold out long enough to make use of Toxic.

Fake Out on Hitmonlee provides nice free damage. It also gives me a free speed boost. When I use Fake Out, it activates the Normal Gem. Not only have I damaged the foe, I've also doubled Hitmonlee's Speed because of Unburden, all without Hitmonlee taking any damage.

Bonemerang is there to take down Substitutes mainly, as well as Focus Sashes and Sturdy. The lower accuracy is worth it for this effect.

If you're going to suggest replacments for anything, please give reason for why you are doing this.
I got it.
