Best time to evolve Growlithe, Gloom, and Poliwhirl.

And who should I evolve them into?

Well, Growlithe only evolves into Arcanine, so not much choice there... just wait until lvl. 51 so Growlithe can get Flamethrower. As far as Gloom/Poliwhirl, that's all up to you, as I'm not sure if Bellossom/Vileplume have any distinct advantages over each other, or Poliwrath/Politoed. >.> <.<

Just a slight correction: Growlithe learns Flamethrower at lv. 50, so evolve it then, and when you do, your Arcanine can also learn Extreemespeed.

I dunno about Gloom or Poliwhirl either. v_v Never used them much.

Ah... I meant 50, because Arcanine learns Extremespeed at 51. Got myself a bit confused, thanks for the correction. ^^;

I had my Growlithe evolved right away at lvl 5. Because after the Pokemon League, you can learn him Flamethrower (Move Tutor). Extremespeed @ lvl 50. And I had it with Crunch through breeding. 4th Move? I'd say Iron Tail, Dragonbreath, Hyper Beam or Fire Blast.

For Poliwhirl, I'd say evolve him to Poliwrath at lvl 35, so he can learn Body Slam + Submission. Best ingame moveset imo is Surf, Ice Beam, Submission & Body Slam.

For Gloom, I'd say evolve at lvl 44 after learning Petal Dance into Bellossom. Only Gloom is able to learn Sludge Bomb through TM, so if you want it, teach it before evolving. Imo Petal Dance, Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb & Return is Bellossom's best ingame Move Set.

Hope this will be usefull.

Dont have both flamethrower and fire blast on the same pokemon...no point.

I may be wrong here but Petal dance is a grass type move yes?
if so then same applies here, no two of the same type.

@ asdam_teabag

Like it really matters what you use ingame... 3 different move types at least = auto win. Only thing not sure about is Bellossom fighting Steel types, but since only 5 Pokemon are partly Steel, don't bother.
#8asdam_teabagPosted 4/10/2008 2:17:53 PM
Of course it matters more if it was competitive but its still a waste having two same type moves as you will only use one, so its a waste of a slot.

Nah... don't think so.
You will always be able to beat the crap out of your opponents in-game without problems, so status moves like Sleep Powder or Supersonic are not that good. Having four attack moves IS handy when you want to train in deep places like Silver Mountain or Mt. Mortar. Move attack moves = more kills = using less Escape Ropes/Dig-move = faster leveling per hour.
#10asdam_teabagPosted 4/11/2008 2:46:39 AM
In that case, wouldnt it be more useful having four different move types, therefore being able to kill different types rather than using the same move type?
