|Bosses (Gym Leaders)||Thier Pokémon
(And how to beat them.)
He lives in: Pewter City.
He gives you: TM34
Badge: Boulder Badge
Boulder Badge increases your Pokémon's power a little and let's you use FLASH outside of battle.
|He has a stone cold combo of a Level 12 Geodude and a Level 14 Onix. Although they seem tough, a Water Pokémon or Grass Pokémon will wipe the floor with Brock's bad boulder buddies. Fire Pokémon will barely singe Brock's boys; but can put the hurt on them when it gets to at least Level 20.|
She lives in: Cerulean City.
She gives you: TM11
Badge: Cascade Badge
Cascade Badge lets you use CUT outside of battle; it also makes any Pokémon up to level 30 obey you.
|This aquatic aphrodite adores water Pokémon! She has a Level 18 Staryu and a Level 21 Starmie. A precious Pikachu or other electric-type Pokémon can really sizzle this aquarian amateur. Grass type Pokémon can dry up her defenses. However, Fire type Pokémon may have a little trouble tanking the terrible two.|
He lives in: Vermillion City
He gives you: TM24
Badge: Thunder Badge
Thunder Badge lets you use FLY outside of battle and ups your Pokémon's speed.
|10-4 Pokémon soldier! The extremely exhuberant Lt. Surge has three five-star Pokémon! A Level 21 Voltorb, a Level 18 Pikachu, and a level 24 Raichu! give Mr. G.I. Jolt a good kick in the barracks by deploying Ground type and Grass type Pokémon! Dragon and Electric Pokémon work too; but where can you get a Dratini this early? Water types should be AWOL for this battle as should any flying types you have. Bugs have a fair chance here.|
She lives in: Celadon City
She gives you: TM21
Badge: Rainbow Badge
Rainbow Badge lets you use Strength outside of battle and makes Pokémon up to Level 50 obey you!
|The pretty plant princess is truly a patch of perilous poison ivy! Her three grass-type Pokémon: A Level 29 Victreebel, a Level 24 Tangela, and a Level 29 Vileplume are hard to pluck. But Bug type Pokémon can munch away her flower power. Fire type Pokémon will, well, let's say that plants get pretty "toasty" in a fire. Heh. Heh. Heh.|
She lives in: Saffron City
She gives you: TM46
Badge: Marsh Badge
Marsh Badge makes Pokémon up to Level 70 obey you!
|Sabrina's a teenage witch with powerful spells. Her mystic myriad of Pokémon includes: A level 38 Kadabra, a Level 37 Mr. Mime, a Level 38 Venomoth, and a Level 43 Alakazam. Her Hocus Pocus can be halted by a vicious assault from another Psychic Pokémon. I have discovered that Ice, Fire, and Ghosts can all do some bad karma on Psychics. So why not catch a Haunter to give Sabrina nightmares! Poison and Fighting Pokémon should stay far away from this battle. A victory for those types is NOT in the cards.|
He lives in: Fuchsia City
He gives you: TM06
Badge: Soul Badge
Soul Badge lets you use SURF outside of battle and ups your Pokémon's defense.
|Koga talks trash and his Pokémon are trash! All of his Pokémon are poison. Look at his dirty line-up o: A level 37 Koffing, a Level 39 Muk, another Level 37 Koffing, and a Level 43 Weezing! Stop his new pollution down by using Rock-type Pokémon, or Ghosts. Ground Pokémon will nail this loser fast and give him a bottle of blues. Odelay!|
He lives in: Cinnabar Island
He gives you: TM38
Badge: Volcano Badge
Volcano Badge ups your Pokémon's special attacks.
|This guy may think he's hot stuff; but he barely smolders. His hot fire Pokémon include a Level 42 Growlithe, a Level 40 Ponyta, a Level 42 Rapidash, and a Level 47 Arcanine. If you caught Articuno, you can beat this hot-headed bald guy faster than you can say: "Propecia". Water and Rock Pokémon can also put out this old flame.|
He lives in: Viridian City
He gives you: TM27
Badge: Earth Badge
Earth Badge makes ALL Pokémon obey you!
|The Rocket Kingpin has some very mean fugitive Pokémon! Behold: A level 45 Ryhorn, a Level 42 Dugtrio, a Level 43 Nidoqueen, a Level 45 Nidoking, and a Level 50 Rydon. Give this guy a hand for having cool looking Pokémon and than kick his butt with any type of Pokémon except Fire, Electric, Poison, or Rock types. Anything else will defeat him fairly easily. Grass and Bug Pokémon walk all over this guy. Even Fighting Pokémon can squash him.|
|The Elite Four Member Data||
||How to beat them.|
(The Ice Queen.)
Dewgong - Level 54
Cloyster - Level 53
Slowbro - Level 54
Jynx - Level 56
Lapras - Level 56
|Before you start your league challenge; make sure you have at least one Ghost (Or a Pokémon that knows PSYCHIC.), one of the Rare Birds, and at least One Fire Based Pokémon. Lorelei is pretty girl; but she has a heart of ice. Seer her with burning Fire. She's such a cold biddy; but you can quickly melt her resolve with Fire. Fighting Types and Rock types can work too. Although, some of her Pokémon are also water types. So maybe you should leave your Onix at home. If you beat her; maybe she'll go back to being a librarian or something. I dislike her.|
(The Master Fighter.)
Onix - Level 53
Hitmonchan - Level 55
Hitmonlee - Level 55
Onix - Level 56
Machamp - Level 58
|This big buff guy is a complete dork! What type of dummy builds an all fighting squad? Why not take out your Ghost or Psychic Pokémon and stomp him! Oh, if you have a water type Pokémon; why not use it to take down his two Rock type Pokémon? Bruno is the case against in-breeding. Ha ha ha. He's one of the weakest of the Elite Four! He should take up a different hobby or put on a shirt. Oh, a word of caution... if you don't take down his Machamp in one move.. it WILL use FISSURE. If FISSURE hits your Pokémon.. they are instantly fainted.|
(Queen of Ghosts and Oak's ex-girlfriend. Huh?!)
Gengar - Level 56
Golbat - Level 56
Haunter - Level 55
Arbok - Level 58
Gengar - Level 60
|Watch out for her confusion moves! She seems to have some pretty nasty Pokémon! She also likes to use items and switch her Pokémon a lot. Take out an Articuno, Zapdos, or Moltres and show her some Legendary power! She's a wicked old woman and she can end your League Challenge quickly if you are not careful! Water and Fire are good ways to bust her ghosts!|
(The Dragon Trainer.)
Gyarados - Level 58
Dragonair - Level 56
Dragonair - Level 56
Aerodactyl - Level 60
Dragonite - Level 62
||This guy has some funky hair... Well, he can get in your hair too; unless you use the superior power of PSYCHIC, or an Ice-type Pokémon on him. Careful! His Pokémon know Hyper-Beam, Recover, and some other nasty moves! I suggest repairing all your Pokémon before facing this punk. He can talk the talk and walk the walk. Trip him up good with an Articuno. (Or borrow a Mewtwo from a friend. Chansey's can kick booty here too!) The weakest part of Lance's team is his two Dragonairs. Hit them with an Ice Beam or PSYCHIC to take them out quick. When Aerodactyl shows up; take it down as quick as you can. His Aerodactyl is one of the nastier guys as it has a nasty Bite and can take a huge chunk out of your Pokémon team.|
|YOUR RIVAL!||How to beat him!|
|Your Rival's team differs
depending on which Pokémon you choose at the beginning of the game.
The first three Pokémon
in the his team are always the same:
If you chose Squirtle;
his last three Pokémon are:
If you chose Charmander;
his last three will be:
If you chose Bulbasaur,
his last three are:
|The team you have used to beat the Elite Four should be able to beat your Rival. Carry some antidote, revive and the Poké Flute. Just attack without mercy and do your best. This could be the most difficult fight in the game. But, to qoute some movie with Adam Sandler that no one saw, "You can do it!". Beat him back! Fight! Fight! Fight! You have come too far to be beaten by this loser! You want strategy? Hmm. Psychics and Ice prevail! The first three are easy for a Ice based Pokémon like Articuno or Jynx. (Dewgong is good too.) A Gyarados is easily defeated by a Psychic Pokémon or a Plant Pokémon. Arcanine can be beaten by Ice, Water, or Rock. Exeggutor? Hmm. Start a brush fire and crispy-size it. A Butterfree, or Venomoth can EASILY chew up the Exeggutor to palatable toothpicks. As for the last one? Hmm. That's up to you to beat. I don't suggest using whatever you left Dr. Oak's place with to battle this last one. (Unless... you want a tough battle.)|
