The last time I played Red I had a team of (at the time) non-evolving Pokémon named after various Nintendo characters (with my trainer name being "Mario"). There was a Scyther, Snorlax, Chansey, Tauros.. maybe a Lapras? ..something else I can't remember…

Anything else, I didn't care about. Probably had a moveset of something like Fire Blast, Flamethrower, Ember, Fire Spin. I remember specifically having a Level 2 Rattata with me when I beat the Elite Four.
Last time I played a first gen game? Nidoking and some HM slaves.
Yeah, I don't think I ever bothered with having a balanced team back in those days. Not much reason to, I guess.
I remember that my Red version Mewtwo's moveset consisted of Blizzard, Psychic, Recover, and Amnesia. Both Charizard had a moveset consisting of Fire Blast, Earthquake, Flamethrower, and Fly (I traded my Red version Charizard over to Yellow so it could learn the move).
