Where is Houndour ???

To those folks who have HG/SS where can you find a Houndour in the game? How early (and no I don't want to trade one in). Also what is the choice of fire pokemon that the game provides... is it batter then what it used to be? I'm asking because I will not be taking a Cyindaquil (not a fan).

I'm not sure if it's changed but in GSC the earliest you could get one is in Kanto in the small route east of Celadon at night.

G/S/C had a pretty good selection of Fire Pokemon regardless.. it was D/P that sucked at it..

Anyway, I'd also like to know the answer to this question considering that Murkrow/Misdreavus can be found in the Safari Zone, Sneasel is in the Ice Cave, and Larvitar swarms in the Dark Cave.. I really hope Houndour is in Johto this time around.
You lost The Game

It's the same as before, you can't catch Houndour until Celadon.

That sucks that they kept it the same. It means that we will be stuck with a Growlithe till Cerulean City.

they should of put hound/larvi/krow/mis in jhoto, and certain others in kanto
I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my Dad things would be differernt around here.

Or you can trade for a Houndour.

Magmar is your best bet for a fire type in this game, assuming you don't pick Cyndaquil and don't intend on using Ho-oh or Entei. It's available in the Burnt Tower like in GS.

You'll need luck to get a Fire Stone before Kanto, and Magmar is a lot better than Growlithe or Vulpix.

out of curiousity can you evovle magmar before you get the national dex?

If you have the Magmizer (fff I probably spelled that wrong. ><).
I don't think it'll be available 'til afterward though since it isn't in the Johto dex. You can always trade for it though?
