Im using This game now to rerun and evolve battling pokemon since i have both versions.

Im about to start a MOSTLY Red/Blue run with...

Emboar (dont have one yet)

I dunno. I kinda wanna try an Archeops or Carracosta. Archeops is the favourite though ive never gone through a game that didnt have a Water type for Surfing. If i had a trade id also be tempted to Oldschool it with a Lapras and The Grass deer thing is kinda tempting too.

Well, if you want a Water-type for Surfing, I'd definitely approve of using Tirtouga's line. They're beasts when it comes to HMs. I load up mine with Surf, Dive, Waterfall and Strength; they can also learn Dig and Rock Smash if you'd prefer.

...on the other hand, that does leave your team with a blatant lack of Fly-users...

Sawsbuck is a great pokemon, full of novelty as well. Double-edge as a main attack combined with Horn Leech (and Shell Bell and/or Leech Seed) to get HP back; grants you great physical power and good type coverage. It can learn Jump Kick too! What deer wouldn't look cool doing a jump kick?

The turtle is good, and available from the 3rd gym onwards. I really like Golett and Golurk, the huge ground/ghost types. Their ability increases the power of their punching attacks. I have tried with Serperior and Samurott but so far am enjoying Pignite (he'll be an Emboar soon)

archeops has a weird ability where some stats drop when it loses 1/2 HP, so it's a bit fiddly. Oh, Whimsicott isn't good competitively, but an ace poke. Tiny little sheep imp thing, and it's ability gives status moves (attract, stun spore, taunt) +1 priority. Ace.

Whimsicott isn't good competitively


Nigga is you SERIOUS?! Whimsicott is probably the deadliest and most Goddamn annoying thing to come out of Grass Pokemon since RSE gave us a Sub-Puncher that could use and abuse healing and status attacks. I dunno how the metagame has changed in the past few months, but last I checked, not even Ferrothorn can hold a candle to the sheer level of piss-off a standard Whimsicott possesses.

Problem is Blade, most people bungle up using Whimsicott...

OK, fair point, but that small percentage that know how to use it... It's like GameFreak made this fucking thing SOLELY to be a troll Pokemon.

They did. The same with Chandelure and Ferrothorn for doubles -.- My GOD the annoyance.
