My site has many stuff on it!

In this FAQ, I will help evaluate Pokemon so that you will know exactly which Pokemon to use in 
your team. You will have trouble choosing Pokemon from the very beginning. Should I choose
Bulbasaur, Charmander, or Squirtle? Pokemon have different weaknesses and strengths, and this
file will help you choose the best Pokemon.

1. NORMAL POKEMON
These are your basic Pokemon. Okay, but nothing all that special. They have plenty of attacks at
their disposal, and they can use almost any type of attack. These Pokemon aren't that useful
later in the game, although strong in the beginning.

2. GRASS POKEMON
Grass Pokemon are strong Pokemon, and should be in yuor party from the very start. they will help
you throughout the game, and you should probably use Bulbasaur at the beginning. Although, you
can also use the "swap-start-new-game-trick" by choosing Chrmander, storing it with a friend, and
repeating with all three Pokemon. Repeat a fourth time to get estra experience points. 

3. WATER POKEMON
Water Pokemon are also very powerful, starting off with Blastoise (a best all around water
pokemon) and Gyrados (a great Pokemon!). They can make short work of Fire, Rock, and Ground
Pokemon, and are also powerful against many others. 

4. FIRE POKEMON
These strong Pokemon are great! Using Charmander or Flareon is really good. They can defeat
Grass Pokemon with ease.

5. POISON POKEMON
These are really weak. They are not strong against anything and are weak to ground types. Don't
Bother with them.

6. DRAGON POKEMON
Use these at all costs! When you get the hard-to-get Dragonite, your hard work really pays off!
It's Hyper Beam and Dragon Rage are an asset.

7. GROUND POKEMON
Sandshrew and Dugtrio may be tough contenders, but nothing can beat the fearsome power of the
Rock/ Ground type GOLEM! Equip it with Dig, Earthquake, Rock Slide, and Fissure to make yourself
a powerful Pokemon

8. ROCK POKEMON
Onix and Rhydon are powerful Pokemon, but you should probably use Golem (see above).

9. FLYING POKEMON
These Pokemon are powerful, but they aren't all that useful late in the game. Using Pidgey,
Pidgeotto, and then Pidgeot will help you a lot through the first half of the game, then they
steadily become less useful.

10. PSYCHIC POKEMON
These powerful Pokemon are an asset. Start b evoling an Abra, then evolve it into a Kadabra,
and then, into Alakazam. Late in the game, Mewtwo is even more powerful.

11. ELECTRIC POKEMON
These are an asset to your team. Not only can they defeat Flying and Water Pokemon, they can
defeat many other Pokemon with ease using THUNDER.

12. GHOST POKEMON
These are useful in the middle of the game, then they become less and less useful, as they deal
less and less damage.

13. BUG POKEMON
Though they are the only ones who aren't affected very much by Psychic attacks, they are
suspectible to EMBER. Don't Bother.

14. FIGHTING POKEMON
These Pokemon are powerful, but are weak to Psychic attacks. But, given the best Fighting attacks
and using Primeape, Fighting Pokemon kick butt.

15. ICE POKEMON
These Pokemon are strong against Grass Pokemon, but there aren't many of those Pokemon in 
the game. They are also weak against Fire. Personally, I don't use them. Give them a try and tell
me what you think.
