I could see using Pikachu, Butterfree, and maybe Pidgeot, but definitely not Beedrill. Butterfree was much more useful with Psychic attacks and status-inducing powders; the only thing Beedrill had going for it was Focus Energy + Fury Attack combo and Twineedle.
Also, even though Pidgeot is a pretty cool Pokemon, I never ended up using one on my final team. The fact that Gust wasn't a Flying-type move in Gen 1 didn't help, either. Fearow was (and still is) much better in my opinion; Drill Peck and Mirror Move FTW!
Hey, back in Gen 1 when the only attacks super effective against Psychic types were Twin Needle, Leech Life and Pin Missile, Beedrill was a gift from heaven (that ans Jolteon with Pin Missile)
I think you forgot Lick, brah. Jolteon was one pretty badass MF, having Electric, Fighting, and Bug-type moves, but I always tended to use Electabuzz instead for some reason.
Ghost type moves didn't work against Psychic types in Gen 1. Bug was the only thing super effective against them, and there were only 3 damaging bug moves. --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/ (Currently Updating: Persona 4TW Add-On M-F)
Only Butterfree and maybe Nidoran Male for me. I don't exactly remember where I got my Nidoking from, but I think I actually caught it as a Nidorino.
