I'm going to my Earthquake and Rock Slide TMs on one of them.
I know Rhydon is better but his speed makes me >__< and I'm at Celadon (not Safari Zone just yet).
And I'd teach Nido Ice Beam if I use him (don't worry I'm going to have Articuno and I'm teaching Gyarados Blizzard).

And it's for ingame (lol).
Get a beastly Nidoking now or wait for a more beastly Rhydon? What would you do?

Grounds are for Electrics which are always faster anyway, except for Dugtrio, except for Jolteon/Electrode.

For ingame you should probably have neither.

Really all you want is pokemon with high speeds and specials so you can get 1 hit KOs against the elite 4. Pretty much all you need is:

Kadabra/Alakazam (with psychic)
Articuno (Lvl 51 will suffice)
Jolteon/Zapdos (With Tbolt)
Random pokemon with fireblast
Random water type with surf

^ you can solo the elite 4 with Blastoise. So..... all you really need is a Blastoise.

Neither really matters.

If I had to choose one, Rhydon, as it gets STAB on both Earthquake and Rock Slide, and both of those use its very high attack stat.

Also: The entire game can be ran from start to end with no more than 3 Pokemon caught in the 'dex.

(Starter, Magikarp/Gyarados OR Starter, Abra, Mew (via Mew Glitch))

(No-one would waste a legit event Mew for a 2 Pokemon finish. And you'd need a 3rd Pokemon to trade it in anyways.)
Allan's the name, ArtMoney and Guitar Hero's the game.
