Nowadays I pretty much only use my starter up until I can get a Sandshrew. But as a kid, I definitely used Pikachu and a Nidoran, and sometimes a Pidgeot. Of those three, only Pikachu was from Viridian Forest, because I'd catch the Pidgey on Route 1. :P --- Official Chespin of the Pokemon X boards. http://www.youtube.com/Decon082/
My Red, Blue, Yellow, Japanese Green, Fire Red or Leaf Green used no Pokemon from Viridian Forest. Pikachu doesn't count since it's a starter. --- I shook hands with Pope Francis. I am enlightenment. I am also the only true Pokemon fan.
The first Pokemon I caught was Nidoran which was not in Viridian Forest. I think the next Pokemon I caught was Drowzee...which I used to catch Abra...which I then traded for Mr. Mime...which I never really used xD
No, in my first playthrough when I was a kid, nobody in my final team came from Viridian Forest.
I caught Pidgey usually. Then Nidoran male and female Then either use Clefairy/Meowth/Vulpix/A grass pokemon Then Lapras And Starter. --- I assure you sir. I am not the Queen you seek. Princess of Peacocks.
Caught a Pidgey on route 2? before the forest. Kept Officer Jenny's Squirtle, Caught a Ghastly then Haunter. Brother traded with me and I had a Gengar .Turned Eevee into a Jolteon. Caught a Growlithe and it became Arcanine later on. --- Anti-brony, and whatever other hobbies that bring you happiness.
I used Pidgeot and Butterfree, but I eventually swapped out Butterfree because it becomes less useful later in the game and all the Pokemon were new and exciting and I wanted to try many. Pidgeot proved useful for the whole game (AFAIK as a child; I didn't realize there were stronger things). Plus Pidgeot was the first Pokemon I caught.
Also you don't catch Pidgey in Viridian Forest. --- "Earth is a silly place. Half the world has no clean water. And the other half has so much, they poo in it."
Nope :P Caught a Pidgey before I reached the forest, and didn't like bug pokemon at the time.
My standard pokemon lineup for gen 1 always had Charizard, Golem, Gengar and Articuno. Couldn't do without them. My other 2 got changed here and there, but I normally would have Zapdos or Jolteon to cover my electric typing. The last slot would have anything.. I even had a Wigglytuff to clear the E4, it seemed quite tanky actually...
