Remember me? Yes, it's the same crazed fool who wrote the Gold/Silver
FAQ. Well, I'm back and worse than ever, with the Pokemon Stadium 2 guide.
Metacrawler's having a fit right now because the amount of e-mail I'm
getting is about to double, and I get enough to begin with! On with the
show.

2) FAQs

This section is the stuff that I want to get out of the way first. As
such, any e-mail I receive about it will be deleted. I read every e-mail
I get, and respond to those that require it. However, if you send me
a question that can be answered in here, you won't get a response.

Q: How do I use my own Pokemon in the events?

A: You'll need one of the Transfer Paks that came with the original game.
If you didn't buy the original, most game stores have them for $20-$30
Canadian. (Adjust the currency appropriately.)

Q: Why do the rental Pokemon suck so much?

A: So you'll go out and get a Transfer Pak to use your own Pokemon. Crafty.

Q: You can use the Expansion Pak with this game?

A: Yes. It'll upgrade the graphics a bit.

Q: What Pokemon are NEVER available for rent?

A: Anything the Rival uses. Mew and Celebi (#251) can be rented in Round
2's Prime Cup. *Thanks to Lickitung for this info*

Q: I was fighting Red in R2's Kanto Gym Leader Castle, and his Raikou used
Thunderbolt! Raikou can't learn that! What's going on?

A: Ah, the kicker. Stadium 2 is compatible with the upcoming expansion
game for Gold/Silver, Pokemon Crystal. There's a man in that game who
will teach Thunderbolt, Flamethrower, or Ice Beam to eligible Pokemon.
There's also some moves that Pokemon can only learn by breeding in Crystal
(Cross Chop Magmar, anyone?). I'll list Crystal moves in the Pokedex.

Q: You're using Hidden Power a lot, and always seem to get the desired
element. How do I do it?

A: First, you need to figure out your Pokemon's DVs (Determining Values).
They are a number between 0 and 15. At L100, a DV increase will up your
max stats by two points. At L50, the increase is 1 DV = 1 point. Figure
out the difference between the maximum for the Pokemon and your stats
when even using the classic Box Trick doesn't increase stats, using
this chart.

DV      # Off Max Stat
15      0
14      -2 (-1 at L50)
13      -4 (-2)
12      -6 (-3)
11      -8 (-4)
10      -10 (-5)
9       -12 (-6)
8       -14 (-7)
7       -16 (-8)
6       -18 (-9)
5       -20 (-10)
4       -22 (-11)
3       -24 (-12)
2       -26 (-13)
1       -28 (-14)
0       -30 (-15)

Note: This doesn't apply to HP. To figure out the HP DV, start with H = 0.
IF Attack DV is odd, add 8.
IF Defense DV is odd, add 4.
IF Speed DV is odd, add 2.
IF Special DV is odd, add 1.
IF all are odd, THEN H = 15.

I don't know the L5 figures, so try not to put Hidden Power on your
Little Cup team.

When you have the DVs, the Hidden Power calculation can begin. My example
for this is a L100 Marowak with stats of 323 HP, 254 Attack (but of course,
this is actually 508, thanks to Thick Club), 314 Defense, 188 Speed, 198
Special Attack, 258 Special Defense. Thus, his DVs are 13/13/15/15, with a
HP DV of 15.

Next, convert each DV into a binary number (be it 0 or 1)

If DV = 8+, let # = 1.
If DV = 7-, let # = 0.

Plug them into a number, in the order of Attack, Defense, Speed, Special.
Mine came up 1111. Joy.

Check this chart to find what your binary number equals.

Binary    X
0000      0
0001      1
0010      2
0011      3
0100      4
0101      5
0110      6
0111      7
1000      8
1001      9
1010      10
1011      11
1100      12
1101      13
1110      14
1111      15

So, the X part of the formula is 15. Good score!

To find Y, we take our Special DV and convert it. In this case, the highest
possible number is 3. Anything above this number is reduced to 3.

So our formula looks like this: Base Power = ((15  5 + 3)  2) + 31

Order of operations rules state that we do brackets first. So, we get:
(75 + 3)/2 )+31
(78/2) + 31
39 + 31
70

Our base damage is 70. (YES!)

To determine the type we'll be hitting with, convert the Attack and Defense
numbers to binary. 13 is 1101 in binary, and it's used twice because the
Attack and Defense DVs are identical.

Combine the last two digits of the number. So, 01 + 01 = 0101.

Use this chart to determine type.

Value Type
15    Dark
14    Dragon
13    Ice
12    Psychic
11    Electric
10    Grass
9     Water
8     Fire
7     Steel
6     Ghost
5     Bug
4     Rock
3     Ground
2     Poison
1     Flying
0     Fighting

0101 = 5 in standard numerals, so Marowak's got a base 70 Hidden Power
that is Bug-typed. (Thereby creating a NickWak.)

Q: Is there a glossary for this guide? You're using terms I can't under-
stand.

A: Sure there is. Here's a list of some terms I'll use.

-STAB: Same Type Attack Bonus. If the move you're using matches with the
type of your Pokemon, the damage will be multiplied by 1.5. Despite what
a certain guide *coughVersusBookscough* says, Normal moves do qualify, and
being dual-typed doesn't split the bonus. Dodrio's Body Slam will do just
as much to an opponent as Snorlax's would to the same opponent.
-SunnyBeam: Sunny Day + Solarbeam in combination. SD makes Solarbeam a
1-turn move, which means you can fire back to back 'Beams. That's good,
because the majority of Pokemon that use the SunnyBeam combo will need
two shots.
-Swift-accurate: The move Swift has a constant accuracy of 99.6%, even
if you've been Mud-Slapped 6 times and the opponent's Double Teamed to
the max. Also applies to Faint Attack, and Thunder if Rain Dance is in
effect.
-Curselax: A Snorlax with Curse, Rest, Double-Edge, and another physical
attack (usually Earthquake). A pain to take down. Also, there's Cursegia
(Lugia w/Aeroblast and Earthquake), Cursemory (Skarmory w/Drill Peck
and Whirlwind), Cursekhan (Kangaskhan with Double-Edge and Roar), and
Cursaring (Ursaring w/Return and Earthquake). Most Cursers have Mint
Berries attached.
-Restberry: Using Rest on a Pokemon that holds a Mint Berry. Most Cursers
use Restberry.
-AP Boost: The move Ancientpower has a 9.7% chance of increasing all of
your stats (except for HP) by 50%. This can make most Pokemon incredibly
dangerous. Since AP only has 8 max PP, most AP users have Mysteryberries
attached for a potential 13 shots.
-OHKO: Stands for One-Hit Knock Out. Applies to the three moves that can
inflict this (Fissure, Horn Drill, Guillotine), but also to instances where
you know that if you can hit a move of a particular element, it's lights
out. (Example: Sacred Fire with Sunny Day in effect on a Parasect.)

Q: What took this guide so long?

A: Well, I only got the game recently (I just started a new job, which
is how I paid for the game), and I don't type very fast. Computer problems
didn't help, either.

3) White City Guide

White City is the area where all of the Stadium 2 action takes place.
(Well, most of it, anyway.) You can get there from the main screen. Also
on the screen, you can Battle Now! (a fight with L40 Pokemon; baby Pokemon
in R1, evolved forms in R2), get to the Mystery Gift, access Event Battle
(requires two Transfer Paks, you can fight battles according to Stadium
rules), or try the Options. The Options menu has a section for creating
your own Stadium rules... cool.

In White City, you move a Magneton cursor around to select the rest of
the game's features. The Stadium is dead-center, and the rest follow in
a clock pattern.

12:00- The Mini-Game Park and Quiz center. You can play twelve mini-games
starring your favorite Pokemon, or take quizzes.

1:30- Free Battle Arena. Similar to the Event Battle, except you can rent
Pokemon if your opponent doesn't have a Transfer Pak (or you don't have
two). Also, this is where you can have Anything Goes fights, which are
6-on-6 and no holds barred.

3:00- Earl's Pokemon Academy. Home to the Library, which is chock-full of
info (including Egg Groups) and the Academy, where you can read lectures
on the game. These skills can also be tested in the Academy Fights. For
more info, see the section.

6:00- Game Boy Tower. Used for playing Pokemon games while in the confines
of the Stadium. Can have its speed upgraded by beating Cups.

7:30- Your Room (GSC games ONLY). Remember how you could micro-manage
everything in your room in the GSC games? Well, now you can do it in 3-D.

9:00- Professor Oak's Lab. Used for sorting items and Pokemon, making
trades, or checking out Pokemon in full 3-D.

10:30- Gym Leader Castle. The home to some of the game's best trainers,
a great training ground. It actually has two parts (Johto and Kanto).

Well, there's the tour. Leave a nice tip and head on.

4) The Academy Fights

The fights in the Academy take into account almost everything Earl taught
you. Use those strategies to win, or cheat and read on.

All of the opponent's movesets are from Nintendo Power's Pokemon Stadium 2
Player's Guide. I spent the $20 so you don't have to.

Recommended Pokemon are chosen in the order they should go in. The first
Pokemon should be leading off, for whatever reason.

Trainer Class (easy): 7 fights

Camper Cole
His Pokemon: Meganium (Razor Leaf), Parasect (Giga Drain), Weepinbell
(Giga Drain), Jumpluff (Mega Drain), Sunflora (Mega Drain), Exeggutor (Mega
Drain)
Your Pokemon: Growlithe (Flame Wheel), Kabuto (Mega Drain), Pupitar
(Rock Slide), Pidgeotto (Wing Attack), Quagsire (Dig), Beedrill
(Twineedle).

Recommended: Pidgeotto, Beedrill, Growlithe
All of their attacks are super-effective against Grass.

Super Nerd Melvin
His Pokemon: Flareon, Charmeleon, Ninetales, Magmar, Quilava, Arcanine.
All his Pokemon have Flamethrower as their only move.
Your Pokemon: Clefable (Ice Punch), Furret (Surf), Persian (Iron Tail),
Stantler (Earthquake), Aipom (Fire Punch), Miltank (Rollout).

Recommended: Stantler, Miltank, Furret
Since you've got six Normal Pokemon, attacks will have to be the deciding
factor. Stantler, Miltank, and Furret all have super-effective moves, so
they'll get you the win.

Schoolboy Carson
His Pokemon: Umbreon (Faint Attack), Steelix (Iron Tail), Donphan
(Earthquake), Sneasel (Faint Attack), Scizor (Steel Wing), Golem
(Magnitude)
Your Pokemon: Bellossom (Giga Drain), Ampharos (Thunderpunch), Magmar
(Fire Punch), Hypno (Psychic), Weezing (Sludge Bomb), Hitmonlee (Jump Kick)

Recommended: Hitmonlee, Bellossom, Magmar
Hitmonlee should handle Umbreon, Steelix, and Sneasel. Bellossom's Giga
Drain will mess up Golem and Donphan, and you can use Fire Punch to burn
down Scizor.

Swimmer Clayton
His Pokemon: Cloyster (Barrier, Surf), Grimer (Acid Armor, Sludge Bomb),
Tentacool (Barrier, Surf), Mr. Mime (Barrier, Psychic), Tentacruel
(Barrier, Surf), and Muk (Acid Armor, Sludge)
Your Pokemon: Pidgeot (Wing Attack), Dragonair (Dragon Rage), Pinsir
(Seismic Toss), Corsola (Rock Slide), Hitmonlee (Rolling Kick), Murkrow
(Night Shade)

Recommended: Pinsir, Dragonair, Murkrow
Each are packing set damage moves that ignore stat uppers. Pinsir's got
the most PP, so I usually take him and let him go.

Youngster Jonathan
His Pokemon: Houndoom, Ivysaur, Houndour, Meganium, Exeggutor, Venusaur
(all except Venusaur have Solarbeam; Venusaur has Skull Bash)
Your Pokemon: Croconaw (Scratch, Dig), Seaking (Horn Attack), Aerodactyl
(Scary Face, Fly), Dugtrio (Slash), Delibird (Frustration, Fly), Raticate
(Quick Attack)

Recommended: Aerodactyl, Croconaw, Delibird
Aerodactyl has this fight in the bag, but haul Delibird and Croconaw
anyway. Use Scary Face against the lead, then Fly. Solarbeam will miss,
then you'll Fly down and whack them. Fly up and repeat again until all
three faint.

Picknicker Cindy
Her Pokemon: Slowbro (Amnesia, Surf), Snorlax (Amnesia, Strength), Furret
(Amnesia, Strength), Quagsire (Amnesia, Surf), Slugma (Amnesia,
Flamethrower), Slowking (Amnesia, Psychic)
Your Pokemon: Girafarig (Psychic), Lickitung (Strength), Dewgong (Aurora
Beam), Granbull (Return), Magmar (Fire Punch), Fearow (Drill Peck)

Recommended: Fearow, Granbull, Lickitung
To win, you have to know the difference betweem Special and Physical
attacks. Amnesia ups Special Defense, so use the physically attacking
Lickitung, Granbull, and Fearow.

Lass Nancy
Her Pokemon: Charmeleon (Smokescreen, Double Team, Fire Punch)
Quilava (Smokescreen, Double Team, Flame Wheel)
Horsea (Smokescreen, Double Team, Waterfall)
Pidgeotto (Sand-Attack, Double Team, Wing Attack)
Gligar (Sand-Attack, Double Team, Frustration)
Aipom (Sand-Attack, Double Team, Strength)
Your Pokemon: Licktung (Stomp), Noctowl (Return, Foresight), Golbat (Wing
Attack, Haze), Flaafy (Wing Attack, Cotton Spore), Eevee (Swift)

Recommended: Eevee, Noctowl, Golbat
Your hits are going to constantly miss unless you take Eevee, Noctowl, and
Golbat. Their movesets either ignore accuracy modifiers or correct the
changes she'll make.

Gym Leader Class (medium): 5 fights

Pokemaniac Joseph
His Pokemon: Kangaskhan (Stomp, Bite, Sleep Talk)
Snubbull (Headbutt, Fire Punch, Sleep Talk)
Ursaring (Fury Swipes, Fire Punch, Sleep Talk)
Miltank (Stomp, Fire Punch, Sleep Talk)
Clefable (Strength, Fire Punch, Sleep Talk)
Stantler (Stomp, Thief, Sleep Talk)
Your Pokemon:
Lanturn (Attract, Confuse Ray, Waterfall)
Exeggutor (Stun Spore, Toxic, Hypnosis)
Gastly (Attract, Hypnosis, Dream Eater)
Butterfree (Stun Spore, Poisonpowder, Sleep Powder)
Raichu (Attract, Sweet Kiss, Thunderpunch)
Jumpluff (Stun Spore, Toxic, Sleep Powder)

Recommended: Raichu, Lanturn, Gastly
Guess what? All of Joseph's Pokemon are female, and all of yours are male.
Time to use that gender mismatch to your advantage. Lead with Raichu and
use Attract, then Sweet Kiss. From there, Thunderpunch everything. Assuming
you catch a few breaks, you might win without switching. Bring along
Lanturn and Gastly just in case.

Kimono Girl Naomi
Her Pokemon: Murkrow (Faint Attack), Haunter (Toxic, Dream Eater,
Frustration), Misdreavus (Toxic, Dream Eater, Frustration), Gastly
(Toxic, Dream Eater, Frustration), Magcargo (Toxic, Frustration), Gengar
(Toxic, Dream Eater, Frustration)
Your Pokemon:
Primeape (Thrash *Bitter Berry*)
Mankey (Thrash *Ice Berry*)
Poliwhirl (Belly Drum, Rest, Mud-Slap *Mint Berry*)
Nidoking (Thrash *Berry Juice*)
Poliwrath (Belly Drum, Rest, Mud-Slap *Burnt Berry*)
Politoed (Belly Drum, Rest, Mud-Slap *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Primeape, Politoed, Poliwhirl
For those who know their move/item combos, this is a snap. Send Primeape
out against Murkrow and Thrash away. After three turns, Thrash confuses...
but the Bitter Berry cures that. Thrash again to KO Murkrow. Leave Primeape
out against the Ghost, and when it croaks, send in either Politoed or
Poliwhirl. Use Belly Drum to cut your HP in half, but your attack rating
has been upped by 8x the original! (Sweet.) Rest on the next turn to get
your HP back, exausting the Berry. From there, Slap like you've never
slapped before.

Lass Tammy
Her Pokemon: Gyarados (Dragon Rage), Bellossom (Giga Drain), Meganium
(Giga Drain), Sunflora (Giga Drain), Tangela (Giga Drain), Magcargo
(Flamethrower)
Your Pokemon: Quagsire (Sludge Bomb), Mareep (Thunderbolt), Wooper (Surf),
Electabuzz (Dynamicpunch), Kingler (Fury Cutter), Spinarak (Sludge Bomb)

Recommended: Spinarak, Mareep, Wooper
Spinarak's Sludge Bomb will take out the Grass Pokemon while suffering
little damage. Mareep's Thunderbolt will waste Gyarados, and Wooper should
be able to Surf out Magcargo.

Youngster Dustin
His Pokemon: Dragonite (Fly), Dugtrio (Dig), Sudowoodo (Dig), Steelix
(Dig), Golduck (Dig), Skarmory (Fly)
Your Pokemon: Hitmontop (Strength), Seadra (Twister), Porygon (Psychic),
Arbok (Wrap, Bite), Magneton (Lock-On, Zap Cannon), Aerodactyl (Earthquake)

Recommended: Seadra, Aerodactyl, Magneton
Dustin usually leads with his Dragonite, so lead with Seadra. Use its
Twister attack while Draggy's Flying for good damage. Keep Twisting until
Draggy drops. From there, use Lock-On/Zap Cannon on Golduck and Skarmory,
and Aerodactyl's Earthquake on Dugtrio, Sudowoodo, and Steelix.

Schoolboy Nolan
His Pokemon:
Chansey (Light Screen, Psychic, Toxic)
Ledyba (Light Screen, Thunderpunch, Toxic)
Elekid (Light Screen, Thunderpunch, Toxic)
Clefairy (Light Screen, Psychic, Toxic)
Ledian (Light Screen, Ice Punch, Toxic)
Blissey (Light Screen, Psychic, Toxic)
Your Pokemon: Staryu (Swift, Light Screen), Gengar (Psychic), Alakazam
(Psychic, Reflect), Mr. Mime (Headbutt, Light Screen), Hypno (Psychic,
Future Sight), Jynx (Body Slam)

Recommended: Mr. Mime, Staryu, Jynx
This ought to serve as an introduction to psuedo-passing - setting up
Light Screen then switching so the next Pokemon is protected. Lead with
either Staryu or Mr. Mime and do that. When that happens, then wail away
with Headbutt/Swift. When they Toxic you, switch to Jynx and have her Body
Slam a few times. Repeat until they drop.

Elite Four Class (hard): 4 fights

Cooltrainer Connor
His Pokemon: Gyarados (Hyper Beam), Remoraid (Hyper Beam), Muk (Hyper
Beam), Seadra (Hyper Beam), Kingler (Hyper Beam), Magcargo (Hyper Beam)
Your Pokemon: Pikachu (Thunderbolt *Light Ball*), Raichu (Thunderbolt
*Stick*), Sandslash (Earthquake *Metal Powder*), Cubone (Earthquake *Thick
Club*), Marowak (Earthquake *Lucky Punch*), Shuckle (Withdraw *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Shuckle, Pikachu, Cubone
Don't freak out when you see that Connor's Pokemon have 10-30 levels on
you. You'll still win. Lead with Shuckle, and bring Pikachu and Cubone.
Have Shuckle eat the Hyper Beam Gyarados leads with, then switch to
Pikachu. Use the rat's Thunderbolt coupled with the Light Ball to bring
Gyarados down. Bring Shuckle in to eat Magcargo's HBeam, then switch to
Cubone. The Thick Club will up Cubone's Attack rating to the point where
Earthquake will knock Magcargo out. Do it one more time and you'll win.

Cooltrainer Becky
Her Pokemon: Machamp (Meditate, Hyper Beam), Electabuzz (Meditate, Hyper
Beam), Scizor (Swords Dance, Hyper Beam), Bellossom (Swords Dance, Hyper
Beam), Primeape (Meditate, Hyper Beam), Pinsir (Swords Dance, Hyper Beam)
Your Pokemon:
Furret (Endure, Reversal, Focus Energy)
Scyther (Endure, Reversal, Agility)
Raichu (Endure, Reversal, Agility)
Houndour (Endure, Reversal)
Raticate (Endure, Reversal, Icy Wind)
Typhlosion (Endure, Reversal, Foresight)

Recommended: Scyther, Raichu, Raticate
On turn 1, Scyther should use Agility while her lead uses an Attack
booster. Next, Endure while the Pokemon Hyper Beams. Scyther should have 1
HP left, so start Reversing. Endure the upcoming Hyper Beam, then Reverse
again for a KO. Repeat, only using Reversal when the Pokemon ups their
attack (you're already faster, so deal some damage in the meantime).

Juggler Ferris
His Pokemon: Dragonite (Wing Attack), Tyranitar (Surf, Rock Slide), Magmar
(Flamethrower, Fire Punch), Arcanine (Flamethrower, Extreme Speed),
Flareon (Flamethrower, Quick Attack), Typhlosion (Flamethrower, Fire Punch)
Your Pokemon: Steelix (Toxic, Bind, Rage), Poliwrath (Mind Reader, Dynamic-
punch), Golem (Defense Curl, Rollout), Pineco (Bide, Rollout), Hitmonlee
(Foresight, Dynamicpunch), Rhydon (Swagger, Roar, Fury Cutter)

Recommended: Steelix, Poliwrath, Golem
Steelix should be your lead, and he should Toxicate Dragonite. Follow up by
Binding so Draggy can't be switched while Toxic does its stuff. From there,
you can keep Binding or Raging until Dragonite goes down. Send out
Poliwrath against Tyranitar, and use Mind Reader/Dynamicpunch twice for the
KO. Finish by using Golem's Defense Curl/Rollout combo against whatever
Fire Pokemon gets switched in.

Swimmer Julian
Her Pokemon: Starmie (Minimize, Rain Dance, Thunder), Slowbro (Surf),
Kingdra (Surf, Twister), Golduck (Surf), Octillery (Surf), Staryu
(Minimize, Rain Dance, Thunder)
Your Pokemon:
Gyarados (Surf, Sandstorm)
Exeggutor (Stomp, Sunny Day, Synthesis)
Magmar (Flamethrower, Barrier)
Houndoom (Flamethrower, Sunny Day, Solarbeam)
Jumpluff (Sunny Day, Solarbeam)
Dodrio (Fury Attack, Fly)

Recommended: Exeggutor, Houndoom, Jumpluff
Lead with Eggy to take on her Starmie. When it Minimizes, use Stomp for
double damage. Let fly with Sunny Day while she Rain Dances, then Stomp
away. OR, switch in Houndoom/Jumpluff to use Solarbeam. This should beat
down all of the Water Pokemon.

Now that you've got the basics down, you can move on to the Cups.

5) Round 1 Walkthrough

a) Little Cup

The Little Cup is a breeder's showcase. If you've got Pokemon that are
L5 with unusaul movesets, bring 'em on.

The rules for Little Cup:
L5 Pokemon only
Pokemon that are first-form and can evolve are eligible (read: no
Snorlax). Thus, 86 Pokemon qualify.
Enter with a full team, but you must choose three battlers.
Clauses: Sleep (only one Pokemon can be put to sleep at a time, using Rest
does not violate), Freeze (only one Pokemon can be frozen, then no move
will freeze), Kamikaze (you can't use Explosion, Self-Destruct, Perish
Song, or Destiny Bond with your final Pokemon), Item (items can be
attached, but no duplicate items), Species (all of the Pokemon must be
different), Dragon Rage and Sonicboom are banned.

Just some general advice: Avoid the Rentals. They suck. They have bad
stats, and usually have not-too-good movesets. I beat the game with raised
teams, so I can't recommend rentals. Instead, I'll suggest teams to raise.

For the Little Cup, I recommend this team:

Abra (Psychic, Thief, Ice Punch, Thunderpunch *Berry Juice*)
Houndour (Flamethrower, Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Crunch *Bitter Berry*)
Machop (Karate Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Focus Energy *Scope Lens*)
Cubone (Earthquake, Rock Slide, Screech, Headbutt *Thick Club*)
Staryu (Surf, Thunder Wave, Swagger, Rest *Miracle Berry*)
Mareep (Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Reflect, Body Slam *Gold Berry*)

There's a glitch you can exploit to get these Pokemon close to max stats:
Get a little experience, then drop them in the Daycare. Withdraw, and
repeat. They will require the experience they needed originally for a
level up, but their stats will have gone up. Repeat until they don't go
up anymore. Also, drop some drugs on them (HP Up and the like).

Battle 1: Youngster Bernie
His team:
Togepi (Encore, Metronome, Charm, Headbutt *Focus Band*)
Omanyte (Ancientpower, Bite, Surf, Constrict *King's Rock*)
Slugma (Flamethrower, Smog, Rock Throw, Harden *Berry*)
Squirtle (Bite, Strength, Rapid Spin, Surf *Mystic Water*)
Sunkern (Sunny Day, Mega Drain, Growth, Absorb *Miracle Seed*)
Mankey (Cross Chop, Thunderpunch, Fire Punch, Ice Punch *Pink Bow*)

Recommended: Abra, Houndour, Machop
Abra should be able to handle most of the team on his own, as can
Houndour. Abra's punches can take Squirtle, Omanyte, and Sunkern
especially, and Psychic will destroy Mankey. Use Machop on Slugma and
Togepi.

Battle 2: Picknicker Stacy
Her team:
Igglybuff (Sweet Kiss, Fire Blast, Defense Curl, Rollout *Berry Juice*)
Snubbull (Lick, Take Down, Bite, Scary Face *Berry*)
Meowth (Screech, Headbutt, Bite, Thunder *Quick Claw*)
Pidgey (Mirror Move, Steel Wing, Gust, Mud-Slap *Gold Berry*)
Rattata (Quick Attack, Hyper Fang, Focus Energy, Dig *Bright Powder*)
Teddiursa (Lick, Thunderpunch, Fury Swipes, Faint Attack *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Machop, Mareep, Cubone
Machop should have a field day with this team. However, bring Mareep,
as it can pound Pidgey and paralyze the rest. Round out the team with
Cubone, who can back Machop up if he falls.

Battle 3: Camper Grant
His team:
Chikorita (Swagger, Reflect, Razor Leaf, Headbutt *King's Rock*)
Cyndaquil (Swagger, Dig, Flame Wheel, Quick Attack *Quick Claw*)
Totodile (Swagger, Slash, Surf, Scractch *Focus Band*)
Diglett (Swagger, Sludge Bomb, Magnitude, Sand-Attack *Berry Juice*)
Chinchou (Confuse Ray, Spark, Thunder Wave, Take Down *Berry*)
Bellsprout (Swagger, Slam, Stun Spore, Razor Leaf *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Staryu, Mareep, Houndoom
Two Water, two Grass, and two Water-weak. Bring Staryu, Houndour (who can
also use SunnyBeam against Chinchou should the opportunity present itself),
and Mareep.

Battle 4: Pokefan Janet
Her team:
Tyrogue (Double Team, Rock Smash, Frustration, Thief *Focus Band*)
Paras (Double Team, Sludge Bomb, Slash, Spore *Mint Berry*)
Geodude (Double Team, Rock Throw, Magnitude, Selfdestruct *Soft Sand*)
Spinarak (Double Team, Psychic, Sludge Bomb, Spider Web *Miracle Seed*)
Zubat (Double Team, Toxic, Wing Attack, Leech Life *Quick Claw*)
Sandshrew (Double Team, Swift, Dig, Sandstorm *Bitter Berry*)

Recommended: Abra, Houndour, Staryu
The Double Team-loving Janet has a severe Abra weakness. Psychic will get
rid of Tyrogue, Spinarak, and Zubat. Ice Punch should handle the rest.
For backup, bring Houndour and Staryu.

Battle 5: Schoolboy Clark
His team:
Mareep (Hidden Power, Headbutt, Thunder Wave, Thunder *Magnet*)
Ekans (Hidden Power, Protect, Wrap, Toxic *Poison Barb*)
Natu (Hidden Power, Swagger, Psych Up, Confuse Ray *Berry*)
Growlithe (Hidden Power, Take Down, Dig, Flame Wheel *Miracle Berry*)
Smoochum (Hidden Power, Sweet Kiss, Sing, Psychic *Quick Claw*)
Larvitar (Hidden Power, Sandstorm, Bite, Earthquake *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Cubone, Houndour, Machop
Two Psychics means Houndour gets a nice snack. Bring Cubone for the rest,
especially Growlithe. The dog likes to use Dig, but Earthquake + Thick
Club + 2x weakness + 2x damage for underground = MOMMY!! If they take down
Cubone, Machop can cover for it.

Battle 6: Swimmer Cora
Her team:
Cleffa (Attract, Headbutt, Zap Cannon, Sweet Kiss *Berry Juice*)
Dratini (Attract, Surf, Blizzard, Dragonbreath *King's Rock*)
Hoothoot (Attract, Steel Wing, Hypnosis, Return *Bright Powder*)
Oddish (Attract, Stun Spore, Sludge Bomb, Giga Drain *Berry*)
Wooper (Attract, Earthquake, Sludge Bomb, Iron Tail *Scope Lens*)
Kabuto (Attract, Ancientpower, Mega Drain, Swagger *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Abra, Machop, Houndour
Abra's Punches are back to the fore... Ice Punch is your main weapon
against Dratini, and can mess with Hoothoot and Oddish. Machop should
handle Cleffa pretty easily, and Houndoom's SunnyBeam combo should
eliminate Wooper and Kabuto. Play that carefully, tho; they do have
super-effective attacks.

Battle 7: Teacher Tina
Her team:
Elekid (Quick Attack, Thunderbolt, Dynamicpunch, Screech *Magnet*)
Scyther (Quick Attack, Wing Attack, Double Team, Focus Energy *Focus Band*)
Swinub (Endure, Mist, Take Down, Blizzard *Bright Powder*)
Sentret (Quick Attack, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Dig *Beserk Gene*)
Vulpix (Quick Attack, Confuse Ray, Flamethrower, Safeguard *King's Rock*)
Eevee (Quick Attack, Bite, Iron Tail, Sand-Attack *Berry*)

Recommended: Staryu, Cubone, Machop
Get Cubone going against Elekid, Scyther, and Vulpix. Swinub has major
problems with Staryu's Surf, as does Vulpix. Machop for the Normals
(sensing a pattern yet?)

Battle 8: Pokefan Rex
His team:
Magby (Confuse Ray, Fire Blast, Iron Tail, Headbutt *Quick Claw*)
Pichu (Thunder, Sweet Kiss, Attract, Return *Focus Band*)
Gastly (Hypnosis, Confuse Ray, Shadow Ball, Psychic *King's Rock*)
Chansey (Icy Wind, Egg Bomb, Thunder, Iron Tail *Pink Bow*)
Poliwag (Hypnosis, Body Slam, Surf, Blizzard *Nevermelt Ice*)
Abra (Psychic, Zap Cannon, Hidden Power, Fire Punch *Gold Berry*)

Recommended: Cubone, Machop, Abra/Houndour
Machop, Cubone, and Abra or Houndour should win the cup. Machop is
Chansey's worst nightmare, while Cubone can take Magby, Pichu, and Gastly.
Poliwag and Abra can be taken by the third (Abra- Thief and Thunderpunch,
Houndour- SunnyBeam and Crunch).

Congratulations, you've licked the Little Cup! Let's swing the other way
now, to the L100 Prime Cup.

b) Prime Cup

It's every trainer's goal to get their team to L100. For those that do,
this is your playground.

The rules for the Prime Cup are:
No level restrictions
All 251 Pokemon (even Legendaries) are eligible
Enter with a full team, choose three to battle
Clauses: Sleep, Freeze, Kamikaze, Species, and Item

My raised team for the Prime Cup:

Lapras (Surf, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Confuse Ray *Leftovers*)
Marowak (Earthquake, Rock Slide, Swords Dance(Crystal)/Screech, Body Slam
*Thick Club*)
Machamp (Cross Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Light Screen *Bitter Berry*)
Houndoom (Flamethrower, Crunch, Sunny Day, Solarbeam *PRZCure Berry*)
Jolteon (Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Reflect, Hidden Power ^Grass type,
wOOt^ *Miracle Berry*)
Alakazam (Psychic, Barrier, Recover, Ice Punch *Mint Berry*)

Try to have these Pokemon as close to max stats as possible, as some of
the opponents can be tricky.

Battle 1: Lass Terry
Her team:
Bellossom (Giga Drain, Endure, Solarbeam, Posion Powder *Focus Band*)
Furret (Slam, Dig, Surf, Ice Punch *Berry Juice*)
Azumarill (Surf, Return, Attract, Tail Whip *Quick Claw*)
Wigglytuff (Protect, Body Slam, Sing, Disable *Pink Bow*)
Ampharos (Zap Cannon, Thunder Wave, Fire Punch, Light Screen *Magnet*)
Togetic (Safeguard, Fly, Double-Edge, Swift *Sharp Beak*)

Recommended: Jolteon, Machamp, Houndoom
Jolteon should lead, and use his Thunderbolt on Azumarill and Togetic.
Machamp can waste the Normal types and use Earthquake on Ampharos, while
Houndoom should take Bellossom.

Battle 2: Blackbelt Yang
His team:
Wobbuffet (Counter, Mirror Coat, Safeguard, Destiny Bond *Focus Band*)
Primeape (Detect, Cross Chop, Seismic Toss, Screech *Beserk Gene*)
Hitmonlee (Detect, Hi Jump Kick, Mega Kick, Reversal *Quick Claw*)
Hitmonchan (Detect, Mach Punch, Dynamicpunch, Thunderpunch *Black Belt*)
Hitmontop (Detect, Triple Kick, Dig, Counter *Mint Berry*)
Nidoking (Detect, Toxic, Double Kick, Horn Drill *Bitter Berry*)

Recommended: Alakazam, Houndoom, Marowak
Alakazam can take everything here; Psychic alone will take out 5 of Yang's
Pokemon. Bring Houndoom for Wobbuffet and Crunch away. Fill the final slot
with Marowak.

Battle 3: Bird Keeper Adam
His team:
Charizard (Slash, Flamethrower, Dig, Iron Tail *King's Rock*)
Aerodactyl (Ancientpower, Fire Blast, Earthquake, Hyper Beam *Focus Band*)
Fearow   (Mud-Slap, Drill Peck, Mirror Move, Agility *Scope Lens*)
Murkrow (Fly, Night Shade, Faint Attack, Attract *Sharp Beak*)
Gligar (Sludge Bomb, Iron Tail, Toxic, Faint Attack *Poison Barb*)
Dodrio (Toxic, Tri Attack, Hidden Power, Drill Peck *Pink Bow*)

Recommended: Lapras, Jolteon, Marowak
Can you say "massive weakness?" Lapras can sweep this team with Ice Beam
and Thunderbolt. Bring Jolteon for speed and Marowak for ultra-powerful
Rock Slides.

Battle 4: Cooltrainer Flora
Her team:
Stantler (Hypnosis, Return, Earthquake, Hidden Power *Quick Claw*)
Hypno (Hypnosis, Shadow Ball, Dream Eater, Psychic *Focus Band*)
Exeggutor (Hypnosis, Leech Seed, Sludge Bomb, Giga Drain *Miracle Berry*)
Clefable (Sing, Dynamicpunch, Fire Blast, Hidden Power *Leftovers*)
Victreebel (Sleep Powder, Swagger, Sludge Bomb, Slam *Miracle Seed*)
Poliwrath (Hypnosis, Body Slam, Submission, Surf *unknown*)

Recommended: Alakazam, Houndoom, Machamp
This trainer likes to put Pokemon to sleep, so counter with the Mint Berry-
packing Alakazam. Ice Punch and Psychic will take Eggy, Victreebel, and
Poliwrath. From there, bring Houndoom for Hypno and Machamp for the two
Normal types.

Battle 5: Fisherman Chase
His team:
Mantine (Waterfall, Wing Attack, Headbutt, Icy Wind *Nevermelt Ice*)
Gyarados (Rain Dance, Hydro Pump, Bite, Twister *Focus Band*)
Dragonite (Outrage, Icy Wind, Iron Tail, Hidden Power *King's Rock*)
Lanturn (Thunder Wave, Spark, Surf, Whirlpool *Miracle Berry*)
Quagsire (Haze, Surf, Dig, Dynamicpunch *Mystic Water*)
Dewgong (Rest, Sleep Talk, Ice Beam, Headbutt *Mysteryberry*)

Recommended: Jolteon, Lapras, Houndoom
Lead with Jolteon here. He can use Thunderbolt on Gyarados/Mantine/Dewgong,
his Hidden Power (ESPECIALLY if it's Grass) on Lanturn and Quagsire, and
Thunder Wave on Dragonite. Lapras should beat down Draggy with Ice Beam.
Houndoom should be around to provide SunnyBeam (if needed) on Quaggy and
Lanturn. (You'd think a Fisherman would have at least one pure Water
Pokemon on his team, but nooo, they had to screw around with the other
types.)

Battle 6: Scientist Craig
His team:
Ninetales (Confuse Ray, Flamethrower, Endure, Fire Spin *Focus Band*)
Persian (Swagger, Screech, Iron Tail, Slash *Bitter Berry*)
Electrode (Swagger, Explosion, Zap Cannon, Screech *Mint Berry*)
Crobat (Confuse Ray, Fly, Screech, Bite *King's Rock*)
Forretress (Swagger, Explosion, Double-Edge, Toxic *Quick Claw*)
Sneasel (Swagger, Dig, Ice Punch, Surf *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Machamp, Jolteon, Houndoom
Machamp should lead with the Bitter Berry, as this trainer loves Confusion.
If Machamp gets Swaggered, mail it in... it puts his attack over 700!
Cross Chop should take Persian and Sneasel, while Earthquake will take out
Ninetales and Electrode. Jolteon should take on Crobat, and Houndoom can
burn Forretress.

Battle 7: Skier Kathy
Her team:
Slowking (Ice Punch, Shadow Ball, Iron Tail, Psychic *Leftovers*)
Lapras (Body Slam, Ice Beam, Dragonbreath, Icy Wind *Focus Band*)
Pilowswine (Blizzard, Icy Wind, Earthquake, Take Down *Berry Juice*)
Feraligatr (Slash, Icy Wind, Bite, Screech *Miracle Berry*)
Jynx (Psychic, Lovely Kiss, Frustration, Blizzard *Gold Berry*)
Mr. Mime (Psybeam, Reflect, Double Team, Baton Pass *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Jolteon, Lapras
Kathy usually leads with Mr. Mime and uses Double Team twice, then passes.
So Houndoom's got three shots at knocking it out. 'Doom can also take
Slowking, Pilowswine, and Jynx. Send Jolteon up against the other two, with
Lapras acting as multi-type backup.

Battle 8: Cooltrainer Marty
His team:
Mew (Psychic, Earthquake, Thunderpunch, Blizzard *Miracle Berry*)
Starmie (Surf, Swift, Psychic, Light Screen *Bright Powder*)
Umbreon (Confuse Ray, Psychic, Shadow Ball, Faint Attack *Blackglasses*)
Tyranitar (Rock Slide, Earthquake, Crunch, Fire Blast *Quick Claw*)
Muk (Screech, Attract, Sludge Bomb, Hidden Power *Focus Band*)
Ursaring (Slash, Hyper Beam, Dynamicpunch, Fire Punch *Leftovers*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Machamp, Jolteon
How Marty got a Mew is beyond me... Houndoom's Crunch should be your main
weapon, as Marty usually leads with it. Jolteon's MO is to waste Starmie
and paralyze the other Pokemon. Machamp shouldn't have any problems
finishing the job (if you're that scared of Umbreon's Psychic, Light Screen
when it shows up).

Way to go! You've finished the Prime Cup! Two Cups to go in the Stadium,
starting with the ultra-annoying Challenge Cup.

c) Challenge Cup

Let me start by saying that the person who thought of this cup ought to
be smacked with a chair. The premise of the Challenge Cup is that you don't
get to pick your team. You're given six Pokemon with completely random (and
often bad) movesets, and you have to go through thirty-two rounds (4
levels, eight trainers in each level) in order to complete the objective.

Here are some general pointers;

- Stick close to the Reset button on the N64. That way, you can pull out
if the team is absolutely horrible.
- Try to get as many of the different types represented as possible in
terms of attacks. A minimum of 12 types should be represented well.
- Don't worry about violating Item Clause. The items are random as well.
*kicks Game Freak*
- Every trainer will have one or two Pokemon that go against the fabric of
the team, so be prepared.
- Uh... hope for some huge luck, as you will need it.

Here's the Pokemon that the CPU will choose from for each cup. (Some of
these Pokemon are from personal observation, the remaining gaps are filled
in by Nintendo Power's Pokemon Stadium 2 guide.)

Thank Goddish that's over... let's move to the Poke Cup, the final
challenge before Gym Leader Castle.

d) Poke Cup

The "official" Pokemon tournament, this is for those trainers who just
beat the Elite 4 and are looking for a huge challenge.

The rules:
Pokemon must be within levels 50-55 to enter
246 Pokemon (no Super-Legendaries; Mewtwo, Mew, Celebi, Ho-oh, Lugia) are
eligible
Enter with a full team, choose three to battle
The level total of the three chosen Pokemon must be less than 155
Clauses: Sleep, Freeze, Kamikaze, Species, and Item

My recommended team for the Poke Cup:
Marowak (Earthquake, Rock Slide, Screech, Body Slam *Thick Club*)
Machamp (Cross Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Counter *Bitter Berry*)
Starmie (Surf, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Recover *PRZCure Berry*)
Electabuzz (Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Ice Punch, Barrier *Focus Band*)
Arcanine (Flamethrower, Crunch, Extremespeed, Sunny Day *Leftovers*)
Alakazam (Psychic, Barrier, Recover, Thunder Wave *Miracle Berry*)

Again, getting these Pokemon close to max stats is very important. Take two
of these Pokemon and get them to L52 (I chose Alakazam and Marowak),
leave the rest at L51. For this cup only, I'll list levels next to the
moves and item.

Poke Cup Poke Ball

Battle 1: Bug Cather Nelson
His team:
Caterpie (Tackle, String Shot *Bitter Berry*) L50
Weedle (Poison Sting, String Shot *Focus Band*) L50
Ledyba (Agility, Safeguard, Swift, Double-Edge *Quick Claw*) L50
Spinarak (Spider Web, Screech, Night Shade, Poison Sting *PRZCure Berry*)
L50
Venonat (Psychic, Stun Spore, Supersonic, Foresight *Miracle Seed*) L50
Ledyba (Supersonic, Double Team, Swift, Detect *Bitter Berry*) L50

Recommended: Arcanine, x, y
Excuse me for a second. *leaves the room and begins to roll on the floor,
laughing his butt off* OK, I'm back. Let Arcanine's Flamethrower loose on
this team and they'll go down without much of a fight. Bring whoever for
the last two slots.

Battle 2: Swimmer Bruce
His team:
Staryu (Swift, Recover, Hydro Pump, Rain Dance *Mystic Water*) L50
Seel (Safeguard, Ice Beam, Take Down, Rain Dance *Nevermelt Ice*) L51
Goldeen (Waterfall, Flail, Horn Drill, Rain Dance *Berry*) L50
Remoraid (Psybeam, Aurora Beam, Lock-On, Rain Dance *Focus Band*) L51
Poliwhirl (Belly Drum, Body Slam, Surf, Hypnosis *Leftovers*) L50
Shellder (Protect, Clamp, Supersonic, Rain Dance *King's Rock*) L50

Recommended: Electabuzz, Starmie, Alakazam
Uh... look at it. Every Pokemon here is Water, meaning that Electabuzz's
Thunderbolts will wipe everything out. Starmie's Thunderbolt will also
work, and Alakazam's Psychic is absolutely devestating.

Battle 3: Hiker Chester
His team:
Onix (Sandstorm, Toxic, Bind, Slam *Soft Sand*) L53
Graveler (Selfdestruct, Earthquake, Defense Curl, Rollout *Quick Claw*) L51
Sudowoodo (Rollout, Rock Slide, Faint Attack, Mimic *Focus Band*) L51
Machop (Focus Energy, Fire Punch, Seismic Toss, Cross Chop *Black Belt*)
L51
Phanpy (Defense Curl, Rollout, Flail, Double-Edge *Miracle Berry*) L53
Rhyhorn (Rollout, Horn Drill, Stomp, Scary Face *King's Rock*) L51

Recommended: Starmie, Alakazam, Marowak
I'm sorry... I can't hold it in. *laughs evily* The only bright spot is
that you need two Pokemon to take down the whole team. Starmie's Surf
will beat dowm everything except Machop, who dies to Alakazam.

Battle 4: Super Nerd Clifford
His team:
Ekans (Glare, Wrap, Bite, Sludge Bomb *Poison Barb*) L50
Magnemite (Lock-On, Zap Cannon, Supersonic, Screech *Metal Coat*) L50
Haunter (Lick, Night Shade, Spite, Curse *Spell Tag*) L50
Electrode (Screech, Selfdestruct, Sonicboom, Mirror Coat *Miracle Berry*)
L55
Porygon (Conversion, Tri Attack, Swagger, Psybeam *Quick Claw*) L55
Flaaffy (Thunder Wave, Thunder, Cotton Spore, Iron Tail *Magnet*) L50

Recommended: Marowak, Starmie, Alakazam
Lead with Marowak to provide a swift end to the hopes of the Electric
types. Use Alakazam on Ekans and Haunter if you don't feel like using
Marowak, and use Starmie on Porygon. Surf, hope Pory Converts (he'll become
Water/Psychic), then Thunderbolt the code out of it.

Battle 5: Beauty Alissa
Her team:
Chansey (Attract, Sing, Egg Bomb, Icy Wind *Pink Bow*) L51
Skiploom (Attract, Leech Seed, Swagger, Mega Drain *Focus Band*) L52
Snubbull (Attract, Take Down, Charm, Bite *Bitter Berry*) L51
Qwilfish (Attract, Take Down, Pin Missile, Hydro Pump *Berry Juice*) L52
Corsola (Attract, Ancientpower, Psychic, Mirror Coat *Quick Claw*) L51
Miltank (Attract, Stomp, Body Slam, Frustration *King's Rock*) L51

Recommended: Machamp, Electabuzz, Starmie
Hmm... Machamp could take this team on his own with Cross Chop for the
Normals, Rock Slide for Skiploom, and Earthquake for Qwilfish and Corsola.
Electabuzz should be used against the Water Pokemon and Skiploom (hope for
a female, as Attract is a real pain) and use Starmie as an all-purpose
backup.

Battle 6: Burglar Jensen
His team:
Charmeleon (Flamethrower, Fire Spin, Dragonbreath, Scary Face *Dragon
Fang*) L53
Persian (Thief, Bite, Pay Day, Shadow Ball *no item*) L50
Electabuzz (Thief, Thunderpunch, Swift, Screech *no iten*) L53
Quilava (Flame Wheel, Quick Attack, Mud-Slap, Double Team *Charcoal*) L50
Gligar (Thief, Slash, Faint Attack, Screech *no item*) L52
Houndour (Thief, Flamethrower, Crunch, Roar *no item*) L52

Recommended: Marowak/Starmie, Machamp, Electabuzz
Whichever leads should take out the Fire Pokemon with Earthquake/Surf.
Machamp can provide Earthquake support and waste Persian with Cross Chop.
Electabuzz's Ice Punch is hyper-effective (4x damage) against Gligar, so
he rounds out the team.

Battle 7: Boarder Claude
His team:
Tentacruel (Icy Wind, Surf, Wrap, Toxic *Miracle Berry*) L51
Tauros (Icy Wind, Surf, Strength, Thunder *PRZCure Berry*) L52
Vaporeon (Icy Wind, Bite, Haze, Shadow Ball *Mystic Water*) L52
Sneasel (Icy Wind, Ice Punch, Slash, Faint Attack *King's Rock*) L51
Teddiursa (Lick, Fury Cutter, Fire Punch, Dynamicpunch *Berry*) L51
Delibird (Icy Wind, Present, Fly, Return *Berry Juice*) L51

Recommended: Arcanine, Machamp, Electabuzz
Arcanine can Flamethrower out Delibird/Sneasel. Machamp's Cross Chop will
wipe out Tauros and Teddiursa, while DESTROYING Sneasel. Send 'Buzz against
Tentacruel and Vaporeon.

Battle 8: Psychic Mason
His team:
Raichu (Thunder Wave, Thunderbolt, Dynamicpunch, Iron Tail *Focus Band*)
L52
Clefable (Attract, Thunderpunch, Shadow Ball, Ice Punch *Mint Berry*) L52
Growlithe (Flamethrower, Dragonbreath, Swift, Dig *Mysteryberry*) L51
Slowpoke (Curse, Dig, Surf, Psychic *Bitter Berry*) L52
Natu (Confuse Ray, Night Shade, Endure, Protect *Gold Berry*) L52
Smeargle (Spore, Confuse Ray, Aeroblast, Seismic Toss *Quick Claw*) L51

Recommended: Arcanine, Machamp, Electabuzz
This trio should take the cup. Arcanine's Crunch will be super-effective
against Natu and Slowpoke. Electabuzz should Thunderbolt Slowpoke. Machamp
should Cross Chop Smeargle and Clefable, while Earthquaking Growlithe and
Raichu.

Great Ball

Team changes:
-Replace Electabuzz with a Jolteon (Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Hidden Power
^Grass preferred^, Reflect *PRZCure Berry*)
-Drop Starmie for an Octillery (Surf, Ice Beam, Return, Haze *Quick Claw*)
-Switch out Arcanine for a Houndoom (use Prime Cup moveset w/Focus Band).
-Keep the rest of the team intact

Battle 1: Pokefan Carmen
Her team:
Pikachu (Thunder Wave, Thunderbolt, Dynamicpunch, Double Team *Light Ball*)
L52
Clefairy (Sing, Encore, Metronome, Moonlight *PSNCure Berry*) L51
Meowth (Faint Attack, Thief, Screech, Pay Day *Quick Claw*) L52
Mr. Mime (Encore, Substitute, Psybeam, Reflect *Focus Band*) L51
Togepi (Sweet Kiss, Encore, Metronome, Charm *King's Rock*) L51
Shuckle (Encore, Safeguard, Swagger, Wrap *Mint Berry*) L51

Recommended: Marowak, Octillery, Houndoom
Marowak's Earthquake will wipe out just abot everything on the team (gotta
love that Thick Club!). Octillery's Surf is super-effective on Shuckle,
and Houndoom can Crunch out Mr. Mime. Don't worry if they survive to use
Encore, as it will seal their fate (and save you from having to push a
button).

Battle 2: Youngster Wyatt
His team:
Ivysaur (Razor Leaf, Sweet Scent, Leech Seed, Strength *Quick Claw*) L51
Pidgeotto (Mirror Move, Wing Attack, Sand-Attack, Whirlwind *Sharp Beak*)
L51
Nidorina (Headbutt, Iron Tail, Double Kick, Bite *Bitter Berry*) L51
Ditto (Transform *Focus Band*) L51
Skiploom (Leech Seed, Cotton Spore, Sleep Powder, Mega Drain *PRZCure
Berry*) L51
Heracross (Headbutt, Reversal, Fury Cutter, Counter *Silver Powder*) L51

Recommended: Houndoom, Octillery, Machamp
Houndoom takes Heracross, Ivysaur, and Skiploom with its Flamethrower.
Pidgeotto goes down to Octillery's Ice Beam, and Nidorina to a good
Earthquake from Machamp. Deal with Ditto by sending in Houndoom, doing a
move while it Transforms, then send in Machamp to Cross Chop it into next
year.

Battle 3: Firebreather Cliff
His team:
Ninetales (Sunny Day, Confuse Ray, Flamethrower, Fire Spin *Berry*) L51
Vileplume (Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Acid, Stun Spore *Miracle Berry*) L53
Rapidash (Sunny Day, Fire Spin, Stomp, Toxic *Berry Juice*) L51
Cubone (Sunny Day, Thrash, Fire Punch, Ice Punch *Soft Sand*) L53
Magmar (Sunny Day, Flamethrower, Confuse Ray, Rock Smash *Quick Claw*) L50
Furret (Sunny Day, Slam, Fire Punch, Ice Punch *King's Rock*) L50

Recommended: Marowak, Machamp, Houndoom
Notice the first move I listed? Sunny Day will weaken Octillery's Water
moves, so I left it out. Earthquake will work just as well coming from
Marowak/Machamp anyway. Cross Chop should take Furret. Houndoom can also
benefit from Sunny Day (its Flamethrower will be more effective on
Vileplume, and you can SunnyBeam Cubone), so it's on the team as well.

Battle 4: Biker Dillon
His team:
Sandslash (Mud-Slap, Thief, Rock Smash, Earthquake *Bitter Berry*) L50
Weepinbell (Toxic, Wrap, Sweet Scent, Razor Leaf *Miracle Seed*) L50
Koffing (Explosion, Destiny Bond, Sludge, Haze *Quick Claw*) L50
Ariados (Attract, Dig, Night Shade, Scary Face *Focus Band*) L50
Ampharos (Thunder Wave, Thunderpunch, Iron Tail, Headbutt *Magnet*) L55
Dunsparce (Glare, Screech, Swagger, Rollout *Leftovers*) L55

Recommended: Marowak, Octillery, Houndoom
Marowak has to take out the L55 Pokemon, plus eliminate Koffing (sorry Mr.
K, I gotta do it*). Octillery wipes out Sandslash, and Houndoom will be
able to wipe out Weepinbell and Ariados.
*Mr. K is one of the admins of Azure Heights, a great Pokemon research
site. (http://www.azureheights.com)</spam>

Battle 5: Teacher Molly
Her team:
Kadabra (Future Sight, Psybeam, Reflect, Recover *Mysteryberry*) L51
Dragonair (Dragonbreath, Thunder Wave, Headbutt, Fire Blast *King's Rock*)
L51
Ledian (Supersonic, Agility, Fire Punch, Baton Pass *Focus Band*) L51
Aipom (Shadow Ball, Agility, Swagger, Baton Pass *Berry*) L52
Girafarig (Psybean, Double Team, Agility, Baton Pass *Quick Claw*) L51
Mantine (Surf, Take Down, Confuse Ray, Wing Attack *Berry Juice*) L52

Recommended: Jolteon, Octillery, Houndoom
Now you'll see why I put Haze on Octillery and left out Starmie this
round... If this Baton-Passing team gets to the end (Dragonair/Mantine),
you're in a heap of trouble. Jolteon should take on Aipom and Mantine,
Octillery goes against Dragonair and Hazes away a lot of stat-uppers,
while Houndoom provides the beatdown abilities.

Battle 6: Sage Chen
His team:
Zubat (Mean Look, Giga Drain, Confuse Ray, Haze *King's Rock*) L52
Haunter (Mean Look, Curse, Confuse Ray, Destiny Bond *Blackglasses*) L51
Jynx (Mean Look, Lovely Kiss, Nightmare, Powder Snow *Quick Claw*) L53
Spinarak (Spider Web, Screech, Swagger, Night Shade *Miracle Berry*) L50
Murkrow (Mean Look, Thief, Pursuit, Faint Attack *no item*) L53
Misdreavus (Mean Look, Confuse Ray, Toxic, Pain Split *Focus Band*) L50

Recommended: Alakazam, Jolteon, Houndoom
This trainer likes to lock Pokemon in, then wail away. You've got to switch
carefully upon fainting, or face impossible matchups. Use Alakazam on
Zubat, Spinarak, and Haunter (watch for Destiny Bond!). Jolteon goes
against Murkrow, and Houndoom takes on Jynx and Misdreavus.

Battle 7: Pokefan Baxter
His team:
Lickitung (Supersonic, Screech, Surf, Earthquake *Focus Band*) L52
Lanturn (Confuse Ray, Spark, Take Down, Hydro Pump *Bitter Berry*) L51
Sunflora (Petal Dance, Mega Drain, Synthesis, Sludge Bomb *Miracle Seed*)
L50
Pineco (Double-Edge, Protect, Rapid Spin, Explosion *Pink Bow*) L51
Magcargo (Smog, Amnesia, Rock Slide, Flamethrower *Miracle Berry*) L50
Octillery (Return, Psybeam, Aurora Beam, Octazooka *King's Rock*) L53

Recommended: Houndoom, Jolteon, Machamp
Houndoom's various attacks will come to the fore here... use SunnyBeam on
Lanturn and Octillery, while Flamethrowing Pineco and Sunflora. Machamp
should Cross Chop Lickitung while Earthquaking Magcargo. Jolteon provides
support in case Octillery gets the best of Houndoom.

Battle 8: Pokemaniac Pedro
His team:
Raticate (Super Fang, Hyper Fang, Pursuit, Double Team *Scope Lens*) L52
Nidoking (Thunderpunch, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Roar *Focus Band*) L51Ultr
Tangela (Mega Drain, Stun Spore, Return, Slam *Miracle Berry*) L51
Seadra (Surf, Twister, Agility, Smokescreen *Mystic Water*) L52
Noctowl (Hypnosis, Foresight, Confusion, Steel Wing *Metal Coat*) L52
Pupitar (Crunch, Sandstorm, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Quick Claw*) L51

Recommended: Octillery, Machamp, Jolteon
The finals set you up against a fairly decent team. Use Octillery on
Pupitar, Nidoking (Surf for each), and Tangela (Ice Beam). Jolteon's
Thunderbolt will mess up Seadra and Noctowl, while Raticate is Cross Chop's
latest victim.

Ultra Ball

Team changes:
-Octillery should be replaced by Lapras (Surf/Ice Beam/Thunderbolt/Confuse
Ray *Leftovers*)
-Keep the rest of the team intact

Battle 1: Bug Catcher Nelson
His team:
Butterfree (Supersonic, Psybeam, Sleep Powder, Gust *Quick Claw*) L52
Parasect (Spore, Dig, Sludge Bomb, Giga Drain *PSNCure Berry*) L52
Scyther (Fury Cutter, Swords Dance, Steel Wing, Pursuit *King's Rock*) L51
Pinsir (Fury Cutter, Swords Dance, Strength, Seismic Toss *Silver Powder*)
L51
Dunsparce (Swagger, Psych Up, Glare, Dig *PRZCure Berry*) L52
Heracross (Headbutt, Endure, Reversal, Hidden Power *Focus Band*) L52

Recommended: Houndoom, Marowak, Machamp
Either Flamethrower or Rock Slide should take out a majority of this team.
Rock Slide works best on Scyther and Butterfree, as they're hyper-weak to
it... sweet. Machamp's along to take out Dunsparce.

Battle 2: Swimmer Bruce
His team:
Poliwrath (Rain Dance, Waterfall, Belly Drum, Body Slam *King's Rock*) L51
Slowbro (Rain Dance, Surf, Psychic, Hidden Power *Miracle Berry*) L54
Magneton (Rain Dance, Thunder, Swift, Screech *Metal Coat*) L50
Dewgong (Rain Dance, Whirlpool, Toxic, Take Down *Berry*) L50
Kabutops (Rain Dance, Surf, Mega Drain, Frustration *Quick Claw*) L51
Quagsire (Rain Dance, Surf, Earthquake, Sludge Bomb *Mystic Water*) L54

Recommended: Jolteon, Lapras, Marowak/Machamp
So many Water-types, so much Electric weakness... use Jolteon on a lot
of these Pokemon. Use Jolteon's Hidden Power (only if it's Grass) on
Kabutops and Quagsire. If the powered-up Water moves faint Jolteon,
use Lapras' Thunderbolt. The final Pokemon should take out Magneton with
Earthquake.

Battle 3: Hiker Chester
His team:
Golem (Defense Curl, Rollout, Magnitude, Explosion *Berry*) L50
Omanyte (Ancientpower, Rollout, Bite, Surf *Burnt Berry*) L50
Forretress (Defense Curl, Rollout, Bide, Explosion *Pink Bow*) L50
Steelix (Defense Curl, Rollout, Iron Tail, Screech *Metal Coat*) L55
Ursaring (Defense Curl, Rollout, Lick, Thunderpunch *Focus Band*) L50
Donphan (Defense Curl, Rollout, Flail, Rapid Spin *Soft Sand*) L55

Recommended: Lapras, Machamp, Houndoom
Lapras should lead and use Surf on the Ground/Rock types and Thunderbolt
on Omanyte. Machamp comes along for Ursaring nuking and the fact that he
resists Rock-type moves like Rollout. Toast Forretress with Houndoom's
Flamethrower (4x weakness is a pain, eh?).

Battle 4: Super Nerd Clifford
His team:
Tentacruel (Toxic, Wrap, Surf, Protect *Mystic Water*) L52
Ampharos (Thunder Wave, Thunder, Swift, Double Team *Quick Claw*) L50
Wobbuffet (Destiny Bond, Counter, Mirror Coat, Safeguard *Focus Band*) L50
Corsola (Mirror Coat, Earthquake, Psychic, Recover *PSNCure Berry*) L52
Skarmory (Swagger, Steel Wing, Fly, Sandstorm *Metal Coat*) L53
Porygon2 (Zap Cannon, Tri Attack, Conversion2, Psychic *Miracle Berry*) L53

Recommended: Jolteon, Houndoom, Marowak
Jolteon leads, using Thunderbolt on Tentacruel, Corsola, and Skarmory.
Houndoom can Crunch out Wobb (just don't get Destiny Bonded). Marowak
should be able to take Ampharos and is your main weapon against Porygon2.
Use Earthquake, hope for Conversion2, then Rock Slide it.

Battle 5: Beauty Alissa
Her team:
Wigglytuff (Attract, Body Slam, Psychic, Thunderpunch *Quick Claw*) L53
Persian (Attract, Bite, Thief, Screech *no item*) L51
Lickitung (Attract, Supersonic, Fire Blast, Earthquake *Berry*) L51
Jumpluff (Attract, Leech Seed, Mega Drain, Stun Spore *Focus Band*) L51
Mantine (Attract, Icy Wind, Surf, Blizzard *Nevermelt Ice*) L51
Miltank (Attract, Body Slam, Shadow Ball, Heal Bell *King's Rock*) L53

Recommended: Alakazam, Lapras, Machamp
Alakazam provides good Speed and a quick Thunder Wave out of the gate. If
he goes down, use Machamp on all the Normals. (Why are they so popular? I
don't know....) Lapras can take out Jumpluff with Ice Beam and Mantine
in 1-2 Thunderbolts.

Battle 6: Burgular Jensen
His team:
Dugtrio (Thief, Magnitude, Mud-Slap, Toxic *no item*) L52
Typhlosion (Smokescreen, Dig, Thunderpunch, Flame Wheel *King's Rock*) L51
Gligar (Thief, Faint Attack, Headbutt, Guillotine *no item*) L52
Magcargo (Endure, Rock Throw, Flamethrower, Body Slam *Quick Claw*) L52
Houndoom (Thief, Crunch, Flamethrower, Swift *no item*) L51
Stantler (Thief, Swagger, Psych Up, Take Down *no item*) L52

Recommended: Lapras, Machamp, Marowak
WARNING! WARNING! Lapras sweep imminent! Surf can take out all the Fire
Pokemon and Dugtrio, whilst Ice Beam will destroy Gligar. Machamp cleans
Stantler's clock with Cross Chop, and can do the same to Houndoom. If
Lapras goes down (Guillotine?) Marowak can pick up the slack.

Battle 7: Boarder Claude
His team:
Blastoise (Icy Wind, Bite, Earthquake, Hydro Pump *Quick Claw*) L52
Vaporeon (Icy Wind, Surf, Iron Tail, Return *Nevermelt Ice*) L51
Jolteon (Bite, Toxic, Pin Missile, Zap Cannon *Bright Powder*) L51
Flareon (Roar, Headbutt, Fire Blast, Mud-Slap *Charcoal*) L51
Sneasel (Screech, Ice Punch, Shadow Ball, Faint Attack *Focus Band*) L52
Delibird (Swift, Present, Blizzard, Frustration *Miracle Berry*) L52

Recommended: Lapras, Machamp, Marowak
Lapras' Surf and Thunderbolt should put serious dents in this team, doing
especially well against Blastoise, Vaporeon, Flareon, and Delibird. Machamp
can Cross Chop Sneasel, and Marowak can take Jolteon with Earthquake and
use its Rock Slide on Sneasel.

Battle 8: Psychic Mason
His team:
Raichu (Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Double Team, Dynamicpunch *Miracle
Berry*) L50
Arcanine (Flame Wheel, Dragonbreath, Extremespeed, Bite *Pink Bow*) L53
Hypno (Future Sight, Shadow Ball, Hypnosis, Psych Up *Quick Claw*) L52
Kangaskhan (Dizzy Punch, Reversal, Fire Punch, Surf *Focus Band*) L50
Xatu (Psychic, Night Shade, Fly, Confuse Ray *Leftovers*) L53
Smeargle (Headbutt, Attract, Sweet Kiss, Glare *King's Rock*) L52

Recommended: Machamp, Houndoom, Marowak
Machamp's Cross Chop gets even more work here, as it will take out Smeargle
and Kangaskhan. Houndoom gets rid of Xatu and Hypno, while Marowak's
Earthquake will tear Raichu and Arcanine new ones.

Master Ball

Team Changes:
-Bring back Starmie and Electabuzz over Lapras and Jolteon. Use the same
movesets that were suggested for the Poke Ball.
-Give Houndoom a Mint Berry
-Replace Alakazam with Dodrio: Haze, Drill Peck, Steel Wing, Body Slam
*Miracle Berry*
-Keep the rest of the team.

Battle 1: Pokefan Carmen
Her team:
Raichu (Thunder Wave, Thunderbolt, Iron Tail, Attract *Mysteryberry*) L51
Clefable (Sing, Metronome, Psychic, Encore *Pink Bow*) L51
Persian (Bite, Thief, Headbutt, Zap Cannon *Gold Berry*) L51
Togetic (Encore, Sweet Kiss, Metronome, Fly *Focus Band*) L51
Bellossom (Return, Attract, Toxic, Petal Dance *Bitter Berry*) L51
Azumarill (Surf, Attract, Ice Punch, Double-Edge *Quick Claw*) L51

Recommended: Machamp, Dodrio, Electabuzz
Machamp dominates once more... Earthquake will wipe out Raichu and Cross
Chop will take Clefable and Persian. Dodrio's Drill Peck will leave
Bellossom hurting, and Electabuzz can Thunderbolt Azumarill and Togetic.

Battle 2: Youngster Wyatt
His team:
Pidgeot (Fly, Toxic, Steel Wing, Mirror Move *Beserk Gene*) L50
Raticate (Super Fang, Hyper Fang, Roar, Shadow Ball *Pink Bow*) L52
Nidoqueen (Surf, Earthquake, Body Slam, Thunderpunch *Focus Band*) L53
Primeape (Screech, Cross Chop, Seismic Toss, Thunder *Blackbelt*) L53
Pinsir (Swords Dance, Submission, Fury Cutter, Guillotine *Silver Powder*)
L52
Ditto (Transform *Quick Claw*) L50

Recommended: Dodrio, Electabuzz, Machamp
Dodrio's Drill Peck gets a good early workout, as you can easily take out
Primeape and Pinsir with it. Machamp's assignments are to Earthquake
Nidoqueen and Cross Chop Raticate. Electabuzz gets Pidgeot, and can deal
with Ditto if you send Dodrio out before it Transforms.

Battle 3: Firebreather Cliff
His team:
Arcanine (Extremespeed, Dig, Agility, Dragonbreath *Leftovers*) L54
Dodrio (Drill Peck, Steel Wing, Tri Attack, Pursuit *Pink Bow*) L54
Exeggutor (Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Stun Spore, Psychic *Miracle Berry*) L51
Marowak (Earthquake, Fire Blast, Thunderpunch, Icy Wind *Soft Sand*) L51
Magmar (Sunny Day, Psychic, Thunderpunch, Flamethrower *Gold Berry*) L50
Houndoom (Sunny Day, Crunch, Flamethrower, Iron Tail *Focus Band*) L50

Recommended: Starmie, Houndoom, Marowak
I brought the Water-type this time because it's got the speed to faint the
Fire-types before they use Sunny Day. Also, Starmie's Thunderbolt will
mess Dodrio up. Houndoom's along for Exeggutor, and Marowak's a capable
Starmie backup.

Battle 4: Biker Dillon
His team:
Venusaur (Toxic, Leech Seed, Giga Drain, Endure *Focus Band*) L52
Arbok (Toxic, Wrap, Protect, Dig *Miracle Berry*) L51
Cloyster (Toxic, Clamp, Protect, Surf *Quick Claw*) L51
Weezing (Sludge Bomb, Explosion, Fire Blast, Thunder *Polkadot Bow*) L52
Rhydon (Iron Tail, Surf, Hyper Beam, Blizzard *Pink Bow*) L52
Steelix (Toxic, Bind, Earthquake, Dragonbreath *Soft Sand*) L52

Recommended: Dodrio, Marowak, Electabuzz
Dodrio should use Drill Peck on Venusaur, and Steel Wing on Rhydon and
Cloyster. It's also protected from Toxic attacks for a turn because of the
Miracle Berry. Marowak can sweep the rest with Earthquake. Electabuzz
should come along if Cloyster's causing severe problems.

Battle 5: Teacher Molly
Her team:
Mr. Mime (Reflect, Meditate, Psychic, Baton Pass *Quick Claw*) L52
Lapras (Rest, Snore, Ice Beam, Body Slam *Miracle Berry*) L53
Lanturn (Confuse Ray, Surf, Spark, Take Down *Gold Berry*) L52
Politoed (Surf, Ice Punch, Body Slam, Earthquake *King's Rock*) L53
Aipom (Swift, Agility, Double Team, Baton Pass *Focus Band*) L50
Girafarig (Psybeam, Agility, Double Team, Baton Pass *Leftovers*) L50

Recommended: Houndoom, Electabuzz, Dodrio
Houndoom's secondary arsenal is very important here. Use Crunch on Mr. Mime
and Girafarig, while SunnyBeaming the Water Pokemon. Electabuzz can handle
the Water types, but be careful around Lanturn (part-Electric). Dodrio's
got to Haze away the stat-uppers, plus beat Aipom down.

Battle 6: Sage Chen
His team:
Gengar (Mean Look, Destiny Bond, Night Shade, Confuse Ray *PRZCure Berry*)
L51
Jynx (Mean Look, Lovely Kiss, Perish Song, Blizzard *Quick Claw*) L52
Crobat (Mean Look, Toxic, Confuse Ray, Detect *Miracle Berry*) L52
Umbreon (Mean Look, Confuse Ray, Screech, Bite *Focus Band*) L52
Murkrow (Mean Look, Shadow Ball, Night Shade, Frustration *Berry Juice*)
L52
Misdreavus (Mean Look, Perish Song, Confuse Ray, Protect *Leftovers*) L51

Recommended: Houndoom, Machamp, Starmie
The worst type of Mean Look team... Perish Trappers. These things are
ANNOYING! Counter with Houndoom's Crunch on the Ghosts and Psychics,
Machamp's Cross Chop on Umbreon, and Starmie's Thunderbolt on Murkrow and
Crobat.

Battle 7: Pokefan Baxter
His team:
Meganium (Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Iron Tail, Body Slam *Berry Juice*) L51
Typhlosion (Flamethrower, Dynamicpunch, Swift, Dig *Focus Band*) L52
Feraligatr (Surf, Rage, Slash, Earthquake *Scope Lens*) L52
Granbull (Bite, Take Down, Fire Punch, Scary Face *King's Rock*) L51
Hitmontop (Toxic, Detect, Counter, Triple Kick *Quick Claw*) L52
Blissey (Attract, Thunder, Blizzard, Egg Bomb *Leftovers*) L51

Recommended: Starmie, Machamp, Dodrio
The duties are evenly split in this semifinal match. Starmie's Surf and
Thunderbolt will take out Typhlosion and Feraligatr. Dodrio's Drill Peck
should beat Meganium and Hitmontop (to be sure, have Starmie Surf it so
Counter won't faint Dodrio), and Machamp on the Normals.

Battle 8: Pokemaniac Pedro
His team:
Charizard (Fly, Dig, Fire Blast, Dynamicpunch *Miracle Berry*) L50
Machamp (Cross Chop, Earthquake, Seismic Toss, Foresight *Scope Lens*) L50
Aerodactyl (Fly, Bite, Hyper Beam, Ancientpower *King's Rock*) L50
Dragonite (Return, Outrage, Thunder, Waterfall *Focus Band*) L55
Kingdra (Surf, Swagger, Blizzard, Dragonbreath *Dragon Fang*) L50
Tyranitar (Crunch, Iron Tail, Rock Slide, Frustration *Quick Claw*) L55

Recommended: Machamp, Electabuzz, Dodrio
This is an extremely tough lineup, made a little easier by the fact that
Dragonite and Tyranitar can't be a team. Machamp should Cross Chop
Tyranitar, and Rock Slide Dragonite/Charizard. Electabuzz's Ice Punch is
the ideal weapon for Dragonite, and Thunderbolt will wear down Kingdra.
Dodrio can provide finishing blows, and Drill Peck should take down
Machamp. Have plenty of continues handy, as you'll need them.

Phew... the Stadium is clear! Now, let's hit Gym Leader Castle.

e) Johto Gym Leader Castle

The longest series of battles in the game, the Gym Leader Castle in Johto
has 10 battle series, with the longest series five battles long. Have
plenty of power ready, as you'll need it.

The rules for both Gym Leader Castles:
No level restrictions
Opposing Pokemon will be the same level as your highest level Pokemon
(ex: If you enter with a team of L60 Pokemon and your L70 Lugia, all of
the Gym Pokemon will be L70)
All 251 Pokemon (even Legendaries) are eligible
Enter with a full team, choose three to battle
Clauses: Sleep, Freeze, Kamikaze, Species, and Item

Most guides change the team throughout the GLC. I'll stick with these guys,
the team I trained to get through.
Ho-oh (Sacred Fire, Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Recover *Focus Band*)
Mewtwo (Psychic, Recover, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt *PSNCure Berry*)
Tyranitar (Crunch, Ancientpower, Earthquake, Fire Blast *Mysteryberry*)
Machamp (Cross Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Light Screen *Bitter Berry*)
Marowak (Earthquake, Rock Slide, Hidden Power ^Bug type^, Screech *Thick
Club*)
Starmie (Surf, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Recover *Miracle Berry*)

Yep... 1/3 legendary, 1/3 come darn close, 1/3 powerful in their own
right. You'll notice a lot of similar moves between my trio in the middle,
but each has a role to play. Obviously, these guys have max stats (when
possible, Marowak's Attack and Defense aren't maxed), and are at L100.

Ready? Let's go.

Violet Gym:
Bird Keeper Matt ---> Leader Falkner

Matt's team:
Pidgey (Fly, Swift, Agility, Quick Attack *Berry*)
Pidgeotto (Gust, Swift, Agility, Quick Attack *PRZCure Berry*)
Spearow (Fly, Agility, Fury Attack, Mirror Move *Ice Berry*)
Doduo (Peck, Agility, Tri Attack, Fury Attack *Bitter Berry*)
Hoothoot (Peck, Flash, Foresight, Confusion *PSNCure Berry*)
Natu (Peck, Leer, Flash, Endure *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Starmie, Tyranitar
Too easy. Three Ice Beams or Thunderbolts from Mewtwo will end the fight.
If you're feeling particularly cruel, you can send Tyranitar against
Natu and Crunch it to death.

Falkner's team:
Pidgeot (Fly, Mud-Slap, Whirlwind, Quick Attack *PRZCure Berry*)
Fearow (Swift, Mud-Slap, Drill Peck, Mirror Move *Sharp Beak*)
Farfetch'd (Fly, Slash, Mud-Slap, False Swipe *Stick*)
Noctowl (Fly, Take Down, Mud-Slap, Confusion *Mint Berry*)
Togetic (Fly, Psychic, Fire Blast, Double-Edge *Burnt Berry*)
Delibird (Present, Mud-Slap, Headbutt, Blizzard *Bitter Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Starmie, Tyranitar
See above. Falkner's Pokemon like Mud-Slap's accuracy down side effect,
but that won't be happening today. Not with Mewtwo's Speed (358) and
Special Attack (406).

Azalea Gym:
Bug Catcher Chaz ---> Twins Min and Lyn ---> Leader Bugsy

Chaz's team:
Rattata (Dig, Hyper Fang, Quick Attack, Focus Energy *Mint Berry*)
Paras (Dig, Slash, Stun Spore, Leech Life *Silver Powder*)
Geodude (Dig, Tackle, Harden, Rock Throw *Hard Stone*)
Spinarak (Dig, Psychic, Scary Face, Night Shade *PSNCure Berry*)
Yanma (Swift, Foresight, Sonicboom, Quick Attack *PRZCure Berry*)
Shuckle (Bide, Rollout, Constrict, Rock Smash *Burnt Berry*)

Recommended: Machamp, Ho-oh, Starmie
Machamp for Rattata (I love overkill...), Starmie for the Shuckle and
Geodude, Ho-oh's Sacred Fire for the Bugs.

Min and Lyn's team:
Pikachu (Thundershock, Thunder Wave, Swift, Charm *Light Ball*)
Clefairy (Doubleslap, Metronome, Light Screen, Charm *PSNCure Berry*)
Jigglypuff (Body Slam, Disable, Nightmare, Charm *Bitter Berry*)
Ledyba (Supersonic, Double-Edge, Comet Punch, Sweet Scent *PRZCure Berry*)
Hoppip (Mega Drain, Tackle, Cotton Spore, Sweet Scent *Miracle Seed*)
Sunkern (Mega Drain, Absorb, Growth, Sweet Scent *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Ho-oh, Machamp, Marowak
Yep... more overkill. Ho-oh for the Bug and Grass Pokemon, Machamp for
Jiggles and Clefairy, while Marowak almost kills Pikachu.

Bugsy's team:
Butterfree (Gust, Psychic, Giga Drain, Nightmare *PSNCure Berry*)
Beedrill (Cut, Twineedle, Sludge Bomb, Poison Sting *Mint Berry*)
Weepinbell (Cut, Wrap, Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb *Berry*)
Scyther (Slash, Hyper Beam, Fury Cutter, Wing Attack *PRZCure Berry*)
Pinsir (Bind, Strength, Submission, Seismic Toss *Bitter Berry*)
Pupitar (Headbutt, Sleep Talk, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Ice Berry*)

Recommended: Ho-oh, Starmie, Tyranitar
Use Sunny Day to lead off, then overkill the rest with Sacred Fire.
If Pupitar comes in, Solarbeam ought to put it down for the duration.
Starmie can also take down Pupitar w/Surf, and Tyranitar provides extra
Fire/Rock power. And if he gets the all-stat boost, mail it in.

Goldenrod Gym:
Lass Lois ---> Beauty Rita ---> Leader Whitney

Lois' team:
Meowth (Slash, Pay Day, Mud-Slap, Fury Swipes *Mint Berry*)
Poliwag (Surf, Psychic, Blizzard, Body Slam *PRZCure Berry*)
Marill (Surf, Ice Punch, Tail Whip, Double-Edge *Mystic Water*)
Snubbull (Roar, Take Down, Ice Punch, Thunderpunch *Pink Bow*)
Teddiursa (Cut, Lick, Slash, Fury Swipes *PSNCure Berry*)
Phanpy (Rollout, Strength, Earthquake, Double-Edge *Soft Sand*)

Recommended: Machamp, Starmie, Mewtwo
Expect to see a lot of Machamp in this Gym... he'll warm up for Whitney
by wiping out the three Normals on Lois' squad. Starmie should Surf out
Phanpy and Thunderbolt the Water Pokemon. Or, just use Mewtwo and sweep
this squad out.

Rita's team:
Diglett (Attract, Slash, Growl, Magnitude *PRZCure Berry*)
Ponyta (Attract, Ember, Stomp, Agility *Charcoal*)
Sentret (Attract, Slam, Amnesia, Quick Attack *Bitter Berry*)
Mareep (Attract, Tackle, Light Screen, Thundershock *Magnet*)
Aipom (Attract, Swift, Agility, Fury Swipes *Mint Berry*)
Remoraid (Attract, Psybeam, Bubblebeam, Aurora Beam *Berry*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Mewtwo
Three genderless Pokemon is the best way to screw up Attract-based teams.
Starmie's varied moves work well against Diglett, Ponyta, and Remoraid.
From there, use sheer power with Ho-oh and Mewtwo to move on.

Whitney's team:
Clefable (Psychic, Thunder, Fire Blast, Doubleslap *Mint Berry*)
Wigglytuff (Psychic, Ice Punch, Double-Edge, Thunderpunch *PSNCure Berry*)
Gloom (Solarbeam, Giga Drain, Petal Dance, Sludge Bomb *Bitter Berry*)
Dodrio (Drill Peck, Tri Attack, Sleep Talk, Fury Attack *Burnt Berry*)
Stantler (Swift, Psychic, Headbutt, Take Down *Ice Berry*)
Miltank (Bide, Stomp, Rollout, Earthquake *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Machamp, Mewtwo, Tyranitar
Four Normals gives Cross Chop a nice long workout. Tyranitar's Ancientpower
should eliminate Dodrio without problems, and Mewtwo can Psychic/Ice Beam
Gloom into the infirmary.

Ecruteak Gym:
Medium Holly ---> Sage Ty ---> Leader Morty

Holly's team:
Nidorina (Tackle, Fury Swipes, Double Kick, Poison Sting *Poison Barb*)
Bellsprout (Cut, Acid, Growth, Vine Whip *Berry*)
Ditto (Transform *Metal Powder*)
Hoothoot (Peck, Growl, Foresight, Confusion *PSNCure Berry*)
Ledian (Reflect, Safeguard, Comet Punch, Light Screen *Burnt Berry*)
Unown (Hidden Power *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Tyranitar, Machamp, Marowak
Tyranitar should handle this team easily. Unown's Hidden Power is unknown,
so just use T-Tar's Crunch. Ditto can be handled by letting it turn into
Tyranitar, then sending Machamp after it. Marowak provides all-purpose
backup.

Ty's team:
Zubat (Mean Look, Toxic, Leech Life, Wing Attack *Burnt Berry*)
Golbat (Mean Look, Toxic, Swift, Wing Attack *Mint Berry*)
Gastly (Mean Look, Lick, Curse, Spite *Berry*)
Haunter (Mean Look, Curse, Spite, Night Shade *Bitter Berry*)
Misdreavus (Mean Look, Spite, Psybeam, Perish Song *PSNCure Berry*)
Smoochum (Mean Look, Lick, Blizzard, Perish Song *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Ho-oh, Tyranitar
More fun with Mean Look, which means it's an all-out assault. Mewtwo's
Psychic will easily deal with the part-Poisons. Tyranitar beats down
Misdreavus and Smoochum, with Ho-oh providing good backup.

Morty's team:
Gengar (Psychic, Fire Punch, Night Shade, Shadow Ball *Bitter Berry*)
Marowak (Headbutt, Iron Tail, Bone Club, Bonemerang *Mint Berry)
Noctowl (Fly, Confusion, Take Down, Foresight *PSNCure Berry*)
Ariados (Dig, Psychic, Night Shade, Sludge Bomb *Burnt Berry*)
Sudowoodo (Low Kick, Strength, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Berry*)
Girafarig (Swift, Psybeam, Thunder, Nightmare *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Tyranitar, Mewtwo, Starmie
For the Leader, Tyranitar can almost take it himself. Crunch for Gengar
and Girafarig, Earthquake for Sudowoodo, Ancientpower for Noctowl, and
either AP or Fire Blast for Ariados. The only potential problem, Marowak,
can be wiped out by Starmie's Surf. Use Mewtwo as backup.

Cianwood Gym:
Blackbelt Nick ---> Leader Chuck

Nick's team:
Nidorino (Horn Drill, Fury Attack, Horn Attack, Poison Sting *PRZCure
Berry*)
Dugtrio (Fissure, Scratch, Magnitude, Rock Smash *Ice Berry*)
Hitmonlee (Foresight, Jump Kick, Mega Kick, Rolling Kick *Mint Berry*)
Rhyhorn (Horn Drill, Dig, Fury Attack, Horn Attack *Burnt Berry*)
Seaking (Horn Drill, Flail, Endure, Waterfall *Bitter Berry*)
Hitmontop (Dig, Counter, Rapid Spin, Triple Kick *Black Belt*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Starmie, Marowak
Mewtwo shouldn't have any trouble with this gym. His Speed will allow you
to fire away without worrying about Fissure/Horn Drill, and his Spec. Atk
will keep them down. Psychic Nidorino and the Fighters, Thunderbolt
Seaking, and Ice Beam the Ground Pokemon. Starmie can Surf out the Ground
and Thunderbolt Seaking, while Marowak gives sweepage.

Chuck's team:
Sandslash (Dynamicpunch, Dig, Slash, Rollout *Mint Berry*)
Primeape (Dynamicpunch, Dig, Headbutt, Seismic Toss *Bitter Berry*)
Poliwrath (Dynamicpunch, Psychic, Hydro Pump, Earthquake *Focus Band*)
Machoke (Dynamicpunch, Earthquake, Vital Throw, Seismic Toss *Ice Berry*)
Hitmonchan (Dynamicpunch, Mach Punch, Mega Punch, Comet Punch *PSNCure
Berry*)
Granbull (Dynamicpunch, Roar, Strength, Shadow Ball *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Machamp, Starmie
In a word, ouch. Mewtwo's Psychic will wipe the floor with the Fighters,
and Ice Beam will chill Sandslash out. Granbull will also drop to a
Psychic or two. Starmie and Machamp provide backup in case Dynamicpunch
connects and Mewtwo becomes confused.

Olivine Gym:
Leader Jasmine. Her team:
Magneton (Swift, Thunder, Sonicboom, Thundershock *Mint Berry*)
Forretress (Rollout, Giga Drain, Rapid Spin, Double-Edge *PSNCure Berry*)
Steelix (Strength, Iron Tail, Rock Throw, Earthquake *Scope Lens*)
Corsola (Psychic, Bubblebeam, Ancientpower, Spike Cannon *Bitter Berry*)
Mantine (Surf, Take Down, Sleep Talk, Wing Attack *PRZCure Berry*)
Skarmory (Fly, Swift, Steel Wing, Fury Attack *Metal Coat*)

Recommended: Ho-oh, Starmie, Marowak
Set up an early Sunny Day with Ho-oh, then Sacred Fire the Steel Pokemon
and Solarbeam Corsola. If Mantine shows up (and it probably will), enter
Starmie and Thunderbolt it. Marowak can also Earthquake out the non-Flying
Pokemon, so make it your third.

Team Rocket Interruption; Yes, Team Rocket shows up to ruin your fun.
Grunt (M) ---> Grunt (F) ---> Executive (F) ---> Executive (M)

Grunt (M)'s team:
Geodude (Explosion, Strength, Rock Throw, Earthquake *PSNCure Berry*)
Graveler (Explosion, Strength, Rock Throw, Magnitude *Mint Berry*)
Electrode (Explosion, Swift, Thunder, Sonicboom *Bitter Berry*)
Koffing (Explosion, Smog, Sludge, Zap Cannon *Burnt Berry*)
Weezing (Explosion, Sludge, Poison Gas, Zap Cannon *PRZCure Berry*)
Pineco (Explosion, Giga Drain, Rapid Spin, Double-Edge *Ice Berry*)

Recommended: Tyranitar, Mewtwo, Marowak
You'll want a Rock-type here, as the Grunt will usually detonate two
Pokemon. Besides, Tyranitar can sweep everything out. Earthquake will
beat down the other Rocks, the Poisons, and Electrode. Plus, it's got
Fire Blast for Pineco. Mewtwo and Marowak back T-Tar up.

Grunt (F)'s team:
Zubat (Toxic, Detect, Leech Life, Wing Attack *Mint Berry*)
Drowzee (Toxic, Protect, Pound, Confusion *Ice Berry*)
Spinarak (Toxic, Protect, Leech Life, Constrict *PSNCure Berry*)
Murkrow (Toxic, Detect, Fly, Pursuit *Blackglasses*)
Dunsparce (Toxic, Protect, Dig, Pursuit *Bitter Berry*)
Houndour (Toxic, Detect, Dig, Ember *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Starmie, Tyranitar
You need as much Poison protection as possible for this fight. Plus,
Mewtwo's Special Attack will overwhelm the un-evovled Pokemon. Psychic
will wipe out Zubat and Spinarak, while doing big damage to Dunsparce.
Use Thunderbolt on Drowzee and Murkrow. For Houndour, bring the Miracle
Berry-packing Starmie and Surf it out. Tyranitar is along in case Drowzee
gets going.

Executive (F)'s team:
Raticate (Thief, Frustration, Dig, Super Fang *no item*)
Arbok (Thief, Frustration, Sleep Talk, Sludge Bomb *no item*)
Vileplume (Frustration, Cut, Acid, Giga Drain *PRZCure Berry*)
Muk (Thief, Frustration, Fire Blast, Sludge Bomb *no item*)
Lickitung (Thief, Frustration, Blizzard, Earthquake *no item*)
Sneasel (Thief, Frustration, Slash, Nightmare *no item*)

Recommended: Machamp, Ho-oh, Marowak
Machamp should go against Raticate, Lickitung, and Sneasel with Cross
Chop. He can also use Earthquake on Arbok and Muk, though Marowak can
do that as well. Ho-oh's Sacred Fire will probably OHKO Vileplune.

Executive (M)'s team:
Golbat (Bite, Giga Drain, Confuse Ray, Wing Attack *Burnt Berry*)
Persian (Slash, Thunder, Iron Tail, Faint Attack *PSNCure Berry*)
Victreebel (Razor Leaf, Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Sludge Bomb *PRZCure Berry*)
Misdreavus (Curse, Psychic, Pain Split, Shadow Ball *Mint Berry*)
Wobbuffet (Counter, Safeguard, Mirror Coat, Destiny Bond *Bitter Berry*)
Houndoom (Crunch, Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Flamethrower *Scope Lens*)

Recommended: Tyranitar, Ho-oh, Machamp
Tyranitar's Ancientpower will wipe Golbat off the map, while Crunch beats
Misdreavus and Wobb. Ho-oh's Sacred Fire should get rid of Victreebel
(especially if it used Sunny Day), while Machamp's Cross Chop will beat
Persian and Houndoom.

Mahogany Gym:
Boarder Alvin ---> Skier Kathy ---> Leader Pryce

Alvin's team:
Seel (Endure, Safeguard, Sleep Talk, Aurora Beam *Berry*)
Shellder (Endure, Withdraw, Whirlpool, Aurora Beam *Bitter Berry*)
Kingler (Stomp, Vicegrip, Blizzard, Crabhammer *PRZCure Berry*)
Flaaffy (Growl, Tackle, Iron Tail, Thunderpunch *Mint Berry*)
Swinub (Roar, Mist, Endure, Powder Snow *PSNCure Berry*)
Smoochum (Lick, Pound, Confusion, Powder Snow *Nevermelt Ice*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Marowak
Starmie's Thunderbolt is key against the Water-types, and it can Surf out
Swinub. Ho-oh's Sacred Fire can burn out Swinub and Smoochum. Keep Marowak
out of the way of the Water/Ice types, but save it for Flaaffy.

Kathy's team:
Cubone (Icy Wind, Growl, Headbutt, Bone Rush *Bitter Berry*)
Seadra (Icy Wind, Surf, Headbutt, Smokescreen *Ice Berry*)
Dratini (Icy Wind, Slam, Headbutt, Dragon Rage *PSNCure Berry*)
Azumarill (Icy Wind, Surf, Headbutt, Double-Edge *Mint Berry*)
Qwilfish (Icy Wind, Headbutt, Take Down, Pin Missile *Mint Berry*)
Delibird (Icy Wind, Fly, Present, Headbutt *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Starmie, Mewtwo, Machamp
Starmie's Thunderbolt attack will work well on all of the Water and Flying
Pokemon. Also, it's packing Surf for Cubone. Mewtwo's Ice Beam will beat
Dratini down, and Machamp will be along if something catastrophic happens.

Pryce's team:
Dewgong (Surf, Ice Beam, Take Down, Safeguard *Mint Berry*)
Cloyster (Surf, Swift, Ice Beam, Spike Cannon *PRZCure Berry*)
Jynx (Thrash, Psychic, Ice Punch, Shadow Ball *Miracle Berry*)
Ursaring (Dig, Thrash, Faint Attack, Thunderpunch *Bitter Berry*)
Pilowswine (Blizzard, Take Down, Sleep Talk, Earthquake *Quick Claw*)
Donphan (Endure, Rollout, Defense Curl, Double-Edge *Ice Berry*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Machamp
Surf will wipe out Donphan while Thunderbolt should handle Cloyster and
Dewgong. Sacred Fire will easily handle Jynx and Pilowswine, while Machamp
will knock out Ursaring with Cross Chop. One more badge!

Blackthorne Gym:
Cooltrainer (F) Gloria ---> Cooltrainer (M) Vince ---> Leader Clair

Gloria's team:
Clefairy (Sing, Pound, Thunder, Fire Blast *Ice Berry*)
Jigglypuff (Sing, Rollout, Defense Curl, Double-Edge *PRZCure Berry*)
Oddish (Sleep Powder, Cut, Acid, Absorb *Berry Juice*)
Venonat (Sleep Powder, Psychic, Foresight, Giga Drain *Burnt Berry*)
Exeggcute (Sleep Powder, Barrage, Mega Drain, Sludge Bomb *Mint Berry*)
Skiploom (Sleep Powder, Headbutt, Mega Drain, Cotton Spore *Bitter Berry*)

Recommended: Ho-oh, Machamp, Mewtwo
Sacred Fire will wipe out all of the Grass types, or you can use Mewtwo's
Ice Beam. Machamp will easily handle the Normal-types with Cross Chop.

Vince's team:
Bulbasaur (Headbutt, Razor Leaf, Giga Drain, Leech Seed *Ice Berry*)
Charmander (Dig, Slash, Dragon Rage, Flamethrower *PSNCure Berry*)
Squirtle (Surf, Bite, Blizzard, Iron Tail *Bitter Berry*)
Chikorita (Attract, Mud-Slap, Body Slam, Razor Leaf *Mint Berry*)
Cyndaquil (Swift, Iron Tail, Flame Wheel, Smokescreen *Berry Juice*)
Totodile (Surf, Bite, Slash, Scary Face *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Mewtwo
Again, Surf out the Fire Pokemon and Thunderbolt the Water types with
Starmie. Also, Ho-oh's Sacred Fire is your main Grass-beating weapon,
and you can SunnyBeam the Water-types. Or, remember that they're first-
form Pokemon and let Mewtwo loose.

Clair's team:
Arcanine (Dig, Dragon Rage, Flamethrower, Extremespeed *Bitter Berry*)
Rhydon (Rollout, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Dynamicpunch *PSNCure Berry*)
Lapras (Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, Dragonbreath *PRZCure Berry*)
Dragonair (Surf, Thunder, Blizzard, Outrage *Dragon Fang*)
Ampharos (Swift, Headbutt, Iron Tail, Thunderpunch *Mint Berry*)
Kingdra (Blizzard, Headbutt, Hydro Pump, Dragonbreath *Scope Lens*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Marowak, Starmie
Oh damn... Kingdra. And stupid me forgot to pack the Dragonbreath Pokemon.
Mewtwo's Psychic will do the job, though. Marowak should easily handle
Ampharos. Mewtwo's Ice Beam is also your main weapon against Dragonair,
while Starmie Surfs out Arcanine/Rhydon and Thunderbolts Lapras.

Elite 4 + Champion:
Elite 4 Will ---> Elite 4 Koga ---> Elite 4 Bruno ---> Elite 4 Karen --->
Champion Lance

Will's team:
Clefable (Psychic, Thunder, Blizzard, Fire Blast *Bitter Berry*)
Kadabra (Psychic, Fire Punch, Shadow Ball, Thunderpunch *Mint Berry*)
Exeggutor (Psychic, Strength, Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb *Burnt Berry*)
Jynx (Psychic, Ice Punch, Body Slam, Doubleslap *Ice Berry*)
Xatu (Psychic, Fly, Giga Drain, Night Shade *King's Rock*)
Girafarig (Psybeam, Stomp, Earthquake, Shadow Ball *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Tyranitar, Machamp, Starmie
Use Tyranitar on everything... its myriad of attacks will spell the end
for all of the Psychics. You can also use Tyranitar on Clefable, or
paralyze it with Starmie before sicing Machamp on it.

Koga's team:
Golbat (Double Team, Toxic, Detect, Wing Attack *PRZCure Berry*)
Venomoth (Double Team, Toxic, Psybeam, Giga Drain *Focus Band*)
Muk (Double Team, Toxic, Fire Blast, Sludge Bomb *Burnt Berry*)
Electrode (Double Team, Toxic, Thunder, Mirror Coat *Bitter Berry*)
Ariados (Double Team, Toxic, Dig, Spider Web *Ice Berry*)
Gligar (Double Team, Toxic, Iron Tail, Sandstorm *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Marowak, Starmie
Again, bring plenty of Poison-protection. Mewtwo's Psychic should easily
eliminate the Poisonous array, and Ice Beam will knock Gligar into next
month. Be careful using Mewtwo against Electrode... it may Mirror Coat,
and you'll be down one Psychic. Use Marowak against it, with Starmie as
backup.

Bruno's team:
Blastoise (Surf, Headbutt, Ice Punch, Dynamicpunch *PRZCure Berry*)
Machamp (Strength, Cross Chop, Earthquake, Seismic Toss *Scope Lens*)
Golem (Headbutt, Magnitude, Rock Throw, Rock Smash *Bitter Berry*)
Onix (Dig, Slam, Rage, Rock Throw *Burnt Berry*)
Kangaskhan (Bite, Reversal, Rock Smash, Dizzy Punch *PSNCure Berry*)
Heracross (Counter, Reversal, Earthquake, Horn Attack *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Machamp, Starmie
Mewtwo sweeps once again... use Psychic on the Fighters, Ice Beam on the
Rocks, Thunderbolt on Blasty, and Psychic out Kangy. Machamp's Cross Chop
will also rip Kangaskhan, and Starmie can Surf out the Rocks and T-Bolt
a Water Pokemon.

Karen's team:
Vileplume (Attract, Stun Spore, Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb *Ice Berry*)
Victreebel (Attract, Acid, Stun Spore, Razor Leaf *Mint Berry*)
Gengar (Attract, Lick, Psychic, Confuse Ray *PRZCure Berry*)
Magmar (Attract, Thief, Fire Punch, Confuse Ray *no item*)
Umbreon (Attract, Psychic, Pursuit, Confuse Ray *Quick Claw*)
Murkrow (Attract, Fly, Mud-Slap, Faint Attack *Bitter Berry*)

Recommended: Ho-oh, Starmie, Machamp
Ho-oh should handle all of the Grass-types with Sacred Fire. Starmie can
Surf out Magmar and Thunderbolt Murkrow. The rest is up to Machamp...
Earthquake Gengar and Cross Chop Umbreon before they have a chance to
Attract you.

Lance's team:
Charizard (Hyper Beam, Fly, Dig, Flamethrower *Mint Berry*)
Gyarados (Hyper Beam, Surf, Sleep Talk, Dragonbreath *PRZCure Berry*)
Aerodactyl (Hyper Beam, Earthquake, Wing Attack, Ancientpower *PSNCure
Berry*)
Dragonite (Hyper Beam, Thunder, Steel Wing, Dragonbreath *Focus Band*)
Steelix (Hyper Beam, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Dragonbreath *Ice Berry*)
Tyranitar (Hyper Beam, Crunch, Rock Slide, Dragonbreath *Bitter Berry*)

Recommended: Starmie, Mewtwo, Machamp
For the Johto championships, Starmie is your main weapon. Surf Charizard,
Aerodactyl, and Steelix, while Thunderbolting Gyarados. As for the other
two, Dragonite will go down to Mewtwo's Ice Beam and Tyranitar to Machamp's
Cross Chop.

Yes! Ten matches left in R1! Next stop... Kanto Gym Leader Castle.

f) Kanto Gym Leader Castle

The Kanto gyms are different than the Johto ones. You only have one fight
in each gym. Nine matches stand between you and the Rival... so let's go.

Keep the same team as in Johto, as it will easily take out a lot of the
Pokemon in Kanto.

Leader Brock's team:
Golem (Rollout, Rock Throw, Magnitude, Defense Curl *Scope Lens*)
Onix (Bide, Strength, Rock Throw, Earthquake *Quick Claw*)
Pinsir (Strength, Submission, Fury Cutter, Seismic Toss *Focus Band*)
Omastar (Surf, Bite, Blizzard, Ancientpower *Miracle Berry*)
Kabutops (Surf, Slash, Sleep Talk, Ancientpower *PRZCure Berry*)
Forretress (Rollout, Take Down, Giga Drain, Defense Curl *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Tyranitar
Starmie's Surf beats the two Rock/Ground Pokemon, then Ho-oh should be able
to come in and sweep. Use Sunny Day, then Sacred Fire the two Bugs and
Solarbeam the remaining Rock types. (You can try leading with it, as
no Pokemon here has Rock Slide... it's worth a shot). Tyranitar's your
backup.

Leader Misty's team:
Golduck (Rain Dance, Dig, Return, Hydro Pump *Miracle Berry*)
Poliwhirl (Rain Dance, Body Slam, Earthquake, Hydro Pump *Focus Band*)
Starmie (Rain Dance, Surf, Thunder, Psychic *King's Rock*)
Togetic (Rain Dance, Encore, Metronome, Double-Edge *PRZCure Berry*)
Sunflora (Cut, Mega Drain, Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb *Scope Lens*)
Quagsire (Rain Dance, Surf, Strength, Earthquake *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Mewtwo
Starmie's Thunderbolt is a key weapon here, and it can slow down Misty's
Starmie with Thunder Wave. Use Ho-oh against Sunflora, and potentially
one-hit KO Quagsire with SunnyBeam. Mewtwo should act as backup. Togetic
isn't a threat.

Leader Lt. Surge's team:
Raichu (Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave, Reflect, Surf *Miracle Berry*)
Magneton (Thunder, Thunder Wave, Sonicboom, Sleep Talk *Focus Band*)
Electrode (Thunder, Rollout, Mirror Coat, Explosion *King's Rock*)
Electabuzz (Thunderbolt, Psychic, Strength, Ice Punch *Quick Claw*)
Porygon (Psybeam, Conversion, Tri Attack, Hidden Power *PRZCure Berry*)
Lanturn (Surf, Spark, Take Down, Thunder Wave *Scope Lens*)

Recommended: Marowak, Machamp, Tyranitar
Three Earthquakers for an Electric-heavy team. Marowak won't have many
problems with Electabuzz, Magneton, and Electrode. Machamp should go
against Lanturn and the wet rat (Surfing Raichu), as well as Porygon.
Tyranitar should be able to take what's left.

Leader Erika's team:
Venusaur (Sleep Powder, Cut, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf *PRZCure Berry*)
Chansey (Sing, Psychic, Blizzard, Softboiled *Lucky Punch*)
Tangela (Sleep Powder, Slam, Solarbeam, Giga Drain *Quick Claw*)
Vaporeon (Rest, Surf, Bite, Sleep Talk *Scope Lens*)
Bellossom (Sleep Powder, Return, Moonlight, Giga Drain *Focus Band*)
Jumpluff (Sleep Powder, Synthesis, Solarbeam, Leech Seed *no item*)

Recommended: Ho-oh, Mewtwo, Machamp
Fire away with Ho-oh's Sacred Fire on all of the Grass-types and SunnyBeam
on Vaporeon. Or, use Mewtwo's Ice Beam and Thunderbolt. Machamp should
be able to take Chansey without problems.

Leader Janine's team:
Tentacruel (Toxic, Attract, Supersonic, Surf *Miracle Berry*)
Weezing (Toxic, Attract, Swagger, Rollour *Focus Band*)
Ariados (Toxic, Swagger, Dig, Spider Web *Quick Claw*)
Crobat (Toxic, Confuse Ray, Bite, Mean Look *King's Rock*)
Gligar (Toxic, Attract, Swagger, Slash *PRZCure Berry*)
Stantler (Toxic, Attract, Confuse Ray, Headbutt *Scope Lens*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Machamp, Starmie
Load up with poison-protected Pokemon and you shouldn't have a problem.
Mewtwo's Psychic will easily nail all the Poison-types, and Ice Beam will
beat down Gligar. Bring Machamp for Stantler and Starmie as a backup.

Leader Sabrina's team:
Wigglytuff (Psychic, Solarbeam, Double-Edge, Shadow Ball *Quick Claw*)
Alakazam (Psychic, Ice Punch, Shadow Ball, Future Sight *King's Rock*)
Slowbro (Psychic, Surf, Fire Blast, Earthquake *PRZCure Berry*)
Hypno (Psychic, Headbutt, Nightmare, Shadow Ball *Scope Lens*)
Mr. Mime (Psychic, Ice Punch, Fire Punch, Thunderpunch *Focus Band*)
Furret (Dig, Iron Tail, Quick Attack, Dynamicpunch *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Tyranitar, Machamp, Mewtwo
Tyranitar's Crunch should leave the Psychics a bloody mess. For the
Normals, bring Machamp along and Cross Chop away. Mewtwo will clean
up if anything happens, so bring it along.

Leader Blaine's team:
Ninetales (Sunny Day, Dig, Fire Blast, Quick Attack *Scope Lens*)
Parasect (Sunny Day, Slash, Solarbeam, Giga Drain *Quick Claw*)
Rapidash (Sunny Day, Stomp, Agility, Fire Blast *King's Rock*)
Flareon (Sunny Day, Take Down, Fire Blast, Shadow Ball *Miracle Berry*)
Magcargo (Sunny Day, Fire Blast, Rock Slide, Earthquake *PRZCure Berry*)
Octillery (Psybeam, Ice Beam, Octazooka, Bubblebeam *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Tyranitar
Starmie should be able to Surf out the Water Pokemon before they can
Sunny Day up. Bring Ho-oh along to Sacred Fire Parasect. Or, use Tyranitar's
Rock Slide and Fire Blast attacks on the various Pokemon. You might want
to bring Starmie along anyway, so it can Thunderbolt Octillery *sniff*.

Leader Blue's team:
Pidgeot (Whirlwind, Steel Wing, Wing Attack, Mirror Move *PRZCure Berry*)
Arcanine (Dig, Bite, Extremespeed, Flamethrower *King's Rock*)
Alakazam (Psychic, Reflect, Recover, Fire Punch *Miracle Berry*)
Exeggutor (Psychic, Nightmare, Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb *Quick Claw*)
Rhydon (Rollout, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Dynamicpunch *Focus Band*)
Gyarados (Bite, Surf, Flail, Dragonbreath *Scope Lens*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Tyranitar
For the final badge, Starmie is your horse. Use Surf on Rhydon and
Arcanine, while Thunderbolting Gyarados and Pidgeot. Ho-oh should easily
handle Eggy with Sacred Fire, and use Tyranitar's Crunch on Alakazam.

Trainer Red's team:
Tauros (Headbutt, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Hyper Beam *Scope Lens*)
Jolteon (Bite, Thunder, Thunder Wave, Quick Attack *King's Rock*)
Meganium (Synthesis, Body Slam, Giga Drain, Razor Leaf *Mint Berry*)
Typhlosion (Dig, Flamethrower, Quick Attack, Thunderpunch *Focus Band*)
Feraligatr (Bite, Surf, Slash, Blizzard *Miracle Berry*)
Scizor (Slash, Metal Claw, Sleep Talk, Quick Attack *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Starmie, Ho-oh, Machamp
The final Gym Leader Castle match isn't actually that hard. Starmie
should lead with Surf on Typhlosion and Thunderbolt on Feraligatr. Paralyze
the Pokemon that Red leads with if you can't beat it, then switch in Ho-oh
for Meganium and Scizor (1 Sacred Fire apiece) or Machamp for Tauros and
Jolteon (Cross Chop/Earthquake).

If you've beaten everything up to this point, then the Rival will issue
a challenge. Otherwise, go back and beat what you haven't dealt with
already, then come here.

g) Rival

The Rival uses the three Super-Legendaries on his team. You've got six
Pokemon to use. However, you only really need one. Still, I've got to
suggest a team, so use the one from Gym Leader Castle.

Rival's team:
Mewtwo (Safeguard, Psychic, Hidden Power, Thunderpunch *Twistedspoon*)
Lugia (Safeguard, Surf, Psychic, Aeroblast *Sharp Beak*)
Ho-oh (Safeguard, Steel Wing, Earthquake, Sacred Fire *Charcoal*)

Lead with Tyranitar and you shouldn't have problems. Use Crunch on Mewtwo
and Ancientpower on the birds. Tyranitar's got the advantage of being
immune/resistant to each Pokemon's trademark attack (Psychic/Sacred Fire/
Aeroblast).

Other tips:
-Don't try for status conditions. Notice all three of the Pokemon
have Safeguard?
-I'm not sure what the Hidden Power is on Mewtwo... pray it's not Fighting.
-Lugia could pose some problems with its Surf on Tyranitar... you might
want to bring Starmie along and Thunderbolt it.
-This might be the time to try Curselax out. It is a pain to take down...
for this fight, use the Shadow Ball variation.

You've won! Claim your Pokemon prize and move on to R2. Oh... if your
Pokemon aren't close to max stats, get them there. The R2 trainers are
seriously close, and they've got Crystal-influences on top of that.

6) Round 2 Walkthrough

Now the real game begins... For most people, the R2 of this game will
be the hardest Gold/Silver fights they've ever had. Thankfully, the
Gambler who drove us all nuts in the original has been kicked to the
curb, but still... The CPU trainers are going to catch unbeliveable breaks,
(AP boosts on demand, Focus Band working 3 times IN A ROW, Bright Powdered
Pokemon dodging three consecutive Psychics, Hidden Power coincedentally
being the element you're weak against, etc.) so begin to expect the
worst.

For this round, I'm going to introduce a new move designation. !CI! stands
for Crystal Influence, meaning a move that the Pokemon can't learn unless
they've been placed in a Crystal game. Some combinations of moves might
require Crystal as well (Mirror Coat + Ice Beam on Blastoise), so I'll
note the second move that Pokemon learns in the combo. In the above
example, Ice Beam would get !CI! because Mirror Coat is an Egg move.

Got it? All right then. Shall we dance?

a) Little Cup

Back and worse than ever, the R2 Little Cup will test your skill at
breeding for movesets to its limit. Be prepared for some tough fights,
especially the final two matches.

The rules for Little Cup:
L5 Pokemon only
Pokemon that are first-form and can evolve are eligible (read: no
Snorlax). Thus, 86 Pokemon qualify.
Enter with a full team, but you must choose three battlers.
Clauses: Sleep, Freeze, Kamikaze, Item, and Species

Make darn sure that you've used the Daycare glitch until your thumbs
are raw, as you need all the stat points you can muster.

My team for the Little Cup R2:

Abra (Psychic, Fire Punch, Ice Punch, Thunderpunch *Berry Juice*)
Scyther (Swords Dance, Endure, Reversal, Wing Attack *Miracle Berry*)
Machop (Karate Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Focus Energy *Scope Lens*)
Cubone (Earthquake, Rock Slide, Screech, Headbutt *Thick Club*)
Staryu (Surf, Thunder Wave, Thunderbolt, Rest *Mint Berry*)
Elekid (Barrier, Psychic, Ice Punch, Thunderbolt *Gold Berry*)

Battle 1: Youngster Bernie
His team:
Venonat (Reflect, Psybeam, Leech Life, Mega Drain *Silver Powder*)
Machop (Dig, Counter, Vital Throw, Light Screen *Blackbelt*)
Voltorb (Swift, Tackle, Thunderbolt, Mirror Coat *Magnet*)
Exeggcute (Reflect, Confusion, Mega Drain, Ancientpower *Miracle Seed*)
Rhyhorn (Counter, Magnitude, Rock Slide, Fury Attack *Soft Sand*)
Pineco (Reflect, Rollout, Giga Drain, Double-Edge *Polkadot Bow*)

Recommended: Abra, Cubone, Staryu
Abra's variable strikes will do you well in this match. Fire Punch should
handle Venonat and Pineco, though you could Psychic Venonat as well.
Machop will drop to Psychic easily, and Eggy goes down to either Fire or
Ice Punch. Cubone handles Voltorb, and Staryu should leave Rhyhorn a soggy
mess.

Battle 2: Picknicker Stacy
Her team:
Bulbasaur (Leech Seed, Solarbeam, Razor Wind, Skull Bash *Miracle Berry*)
Spearow (Agility, Steel Wing, Tri Attack, Sky Attack *PRZCure Berry*)
Horsea (Agility, Blizzard, Hydro Pump, Skull Bash *Mint Berry*)
Goldeen (Haze, Agility, Blizzard, Hydro Pump *PSNCure Berry*)
Cyndaquil (Dig, Foresight, Iron Tail, Fire Blast *Bitter Berry*)
Phanpy (Roar, Rollout, Earthquake, Focus Energy *Berry*)

Recommended: Elekid, Staryu, Scyther
Elekid's Thunderbolt and Ice Punch attacks will wear out Bulbasaur,
Spearow, Goldeen, and Horsea. Staryu will do well against Cyndaquil and
Phanpy. Scyther's Wing Attack will also work well against the Grass
Pokemon, but keep it away from Phanpy's Rollout.

Battle 3: Camper Grant
His team:
Diglett (Swagger, Screech, Magnitude, Ancientpower *Bright Powder*)
Meowth (Swagger, Screech, Slash, Shadow Ball *Miracle Berry*)
Psyduck (Swagger, Screech, Psychic, Ice Beam *Scope Lens*)
Hoppip (Swagger, Reflect, Amnesia, Giga Drain *Focus Band*)
Wooper (Swagger, Tail Whip, Surf, Earthquake *Quick Claw*)
Teddiursa (Swagger, Leer, Rock Smash, Metal Claw !CI! *Berry*)

Recommended: Machop, Abra, Staryu
Machop's Karate Chop will make short work of all the Nomral Pokemon.
Then, use Abra's Ice Punch on Hoppip and Thunderpunch on Psyduck. Staryu
should wipe out Diglett without problems, but Wooper might be one.
Perhaps mess it up with Staryu's Surf attacks... I forgot the Grass-type.

Battle 4: Pokefan Janet
Her team:
Magnemite (Double Team, Rollout, Lock-On, Zap Cannon *Leftovers*)
Seel (Double Team, Surf, Whirlpool, Perish Song *Miracle Berry*)
Gastly (Double Team, Curse, Psychic, Mean Look *Berry Juice*)
Ledyba (Double Team, Agility, Ice Punch, Baton Pass *Bright Powder*)
Spinarak (Double Team, Spider Web, Baton Pass, Sludge Bomb *Quick Claw*)
Houndour (Double Team, Bite, Toxic, Fire Spin *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Cubone, Elekid, Abra
Cubone's Earthquake will be your friend here, especially against Magnemite,
Gastly, and Houndour. Use Rock Slide on the Bugs (Ledyba/Spinarak). For
Seel, use Elekid's Thunderbolt to knock it out before Whirlpool can
connect. Abra is solid backup... but avoid Houndour.

Battle 5: Schoolboy Clark
His team:
Vulpix (Hidden Power, Dig, Quick Attack, Flamethrower *Bright Powder*)
Chikorita (Hidden Power, Body Slam, Giga Drain, Ancientpower *Berry*)
Sentret (Hidden Power, Surf, Reversal, Shadow Ball *Focus Band*)
Pichu (Hidden Power, Return, Thunder, Iron Tail *Berry Juice*)
Cleffa (Hidden Power, Psychic, Fire Blast, Shadow Ball *Quick Claw*)
Marill (Hidden Power, Surf, Iron Tail, Ice Punch *Gold Berry*)

Recommended: Abra, Cubone, Machop
Abra's Ice Punch should handle Chikorita, and Thunderpunch will waste
Marill. Vulpix and Pichu will probably go down to one Earthquake apiece
from Cubone, and the Normals will probably drop to Machop's Karate Chop.

Battle 6: Swimmer Cora
Her team:
Charmander (Attract, Bite, Scary Face, Flamethrower *Miracle Berry*)
Poliwag (Attract, Icy Wind, Headbutt, Hydro Pump *Berry Juice*)
Abra (Attract, Psychic, Headbutt, Thunder Wave *King's Rock*)
Cubone (Attract, Icy Wind, Bone Club, Rock Slide *Focus Band*)
Dratini (Attract, Twister, Thunder Wave, Ice Beam !CI! *Scope Lens*)
Mareep (Attract, Headbutt, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Gold Berry*)

Recommended: Cubone, Abra, Elekid
Cubone's Earthquake leads and wipes out Charmander and Mareep. Abra will
be put to good use against the rest. Use Abra's grab-bag of punches
well (Ice Punch Cubone/Dratini, Thunderpunch Poliwag, pick one and hope
it works against the other Abra). Elekid should come along to provide
a powerful Thunderbolt up Abra's rear.

Battle 7: Teacher Tina
Her team:
Rattata (Curse, Quick Attack, Dig, Super Fang *Miracle Berry*)
Ponyta (Curse, Quick Attack, Flame Wheel, Double Kick *Berry Juice*)
Doduo (Curse, Quick Attack, Drill Peck, Steel Wing *Scope Lens*)
Eevee (Curse, Quick Attack, Bite, Flail *Gold Berry*)
Natu (Curse, Quick Attack, Psychic, Giga Drain *Bright Powder*)
Tyrogue (Curse, Mach Punch, Mud-Slap, Strength *King's Rock*)

Recommended: Machop, Abra, Elekid
The attack grab-bagging continues... Machop's soaring to the front in
this round. Karate Chop will beat down the Normals, Earthquake shoud
handle Ponyta, and Rock Slide will beat Doduo. Tyrogue will go down to
Abra's Psychic, and Natu to a Thunderbolt from Elekid.

Final Battle: Pokefan Rex
His team:
Slowpoke (Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, Earthquake *Gold Berry*)
Onix (Body Slam, Iron Tail, Rock Slide, Earthquake *Scope Lens*)
Chansey (Counter, Ice Beam, Softboiled, Thunderbolt *Focus Band*)
Scyther (Reversal, Hyper Beam, Steel Wing, Wing Attack *King's Rock*)
Porygon (Psychic, Recover, Tri Attack, Conversion *Quick Claw*)
Elekid (Psychic, Ice Punch, Cross Chop !CI!, Thunderbolt *Berry Juice*)

Recommended: Staryu, Cubone, Scyther
For the finals, get Staryu to paralyze everything, Surf out Onix, and
Thunderbolt Slowpoke. From there, use Cubone against Elekid and Scyther.
Porygon and Chansey are tough opponents, so use Scyther on them. Use
Swords Dance, Endure the next hit (hope you go down to 1 HP), then Reverse
them for a probable KO.

1 down, six to go. Let's continue the journey through Round 2 in the
Prime Cup.

b) Prime Cup

The be-all-and-end-all of tournaments, the Prime Cup will have two special
guests for those damned to the rentals. Otherwise, it's all hands on deck
for six of the toughest Pokemon in existence.

The rules for the Prime Cup are:
No level restrictions
All 251 Pokemon (even Legendaries) are eligible
Enter with a full team, choose three to battle
Clauses: Sleep, Freeze, Kamikaze, Species, and Item

Okay... here's the team that carried me through the R2 Prime Cup. It's
got a good mix of legendaries and general pains in the rear.

Kingdra (Surf, Return, Ice Beam, Dragonbreath *Brightpowder*)
Zapdos (Drill Peck, Hidden Power ^Grass^, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave
*Miracle Berry*)
Marowak (Screech, Rock Slide, Earthquake, Hidden Power ^Bug^ *Thick Club*)
Mewtwo (Rest, Psychic, Submission, Thunder Wave *Mint Berry*)
Machamp (Rock Slide, Earthquake, Cross Chop, Light Screen *Blackbelt*)
Ho-oh (Recover, Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Sacred Fire *Leftovers*)

Again, where possible, maximum stats are almost required. Don't believe
me? Go face the Extremespeed Dragonite and tell me that.

Battle 1: Lass Terry
Her team:
Bellossom (Attract, Mimic, Return, Petal Dance *Bitter Berry*)
Jumpluff (Attract, Headbutt, Giga Drain, Stun Spore *King's Rock*)
Steelix (Attract, Dig, Crunch, Strength *Brightpowder*)
Donphan (Attract, Take Down, Earthquake, Hidden Power *Magnet*)
Miltank (Attract, Strength, Heal Bell, Seismic Toss *Scope Lens*)
Blissey (Attract, Reflect, Psychic, Thunder Wave *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Kingdra, Ho-oh, Machamp
Kingdra's Surf will take Donphan (considering that his attached item is
a Magnet, the HP is probably Electric), and Ice Beam will waste Jumpluff.
Ho-oh's Sacred Fire should burn out Steelix and Bellossom, and Machamp can
Cross Chop the Normals.

Battle 2: Blackbelt Yang
His team:
Blastoise (Counter, Strength, Iron Tail, Earthquake *Leftovers*)
Primeape (Counter, Screech, Thunder, Cross Chop *Bitter Berry*)
Poliwrath (Surf, Fissure, Submission, Mind Reader *Quick Claw*)
Tentacruel (Mirror Coat, Barrier, Hydro Pump, Sludge Bomb *Brightpowder*)
Wobbuffer (Counter, Mirror Coat, Destiny Bond, Safeguard *Blackglasses*)
Heracross (Reversal, Endure, Headbutt, Megahorn *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Marowak, Ho-oh
Zapdos owns this team. Thunderbolt will do huge damage to the Water Pokemon,
Drill Peck will handle the Fighters (Thunderbolt Primeape first, so you
don't get Countered to death), and can mess with Heracross. For Wobb,
I suggest Marowak's Hidden Power after a Screech. Or, use Sunny Day, then
Sacred Fire from Ho-oh.

Battle 3: Bird Keeper Adam
His team:
Aerodactyl (Iron Tail, Fire Blast, Hyper Beam, Earthquake *Gold Berry*)
Articuno (Reflect, Blizzard, Icy Wind, Steel Wing *Leftovers*)
Zapdos (Mud-Slap, Drill Peck, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Quick Claw*)
Moltres (Fire Blast, Hyper Beam, Sky Attack, Steel Wing *Sharp Beak*)
Dragonite (Ice Beam, Hyper Beam, Thunderbolt, Extremespeed !CI! *Miracle
Berry*)
Xatu (Psychic, Drill Peck, Confuse Ray, Night Shade *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Kingdra, Zapdos, Marowak
Kindgra's got the most super-effective attacks and a ton of resistances,
so lead with it. Use Ice Beam/Surf on all of them. If you see Articuno,
send out Zapdos and Thunderbolt it. Marowak's Rock Slide will also be
useful.

Battle 4: Cooltrainer Flora
Her team:
Rapidash (Hypnosis, Reflect, Body Slam, Fire Blast *Pink Bow*)
Hypno (Hypnosis, Psychic, Tri Attack, Seismic Toss *Focus Band*)
Exeggutor (Sleep Powder, Psychic, Synthesis, Mega Drain *Miracle Seed*)
Mr. Mime (Hypnosis, Psychic, Fire Punch, Thunderbolt *Gold Berry*)
Politoed (Hypnosis, Psychic, Earthquake, Hydro Pump *Quick Claw*)
Espeon (Bite, Charm, Psychic, Morning Sun *Twistedspoon*)

Recommended: Marowak, Zapdos, Ho-oh
Marowak's Hidden Power will wreak havoc on all of the Psychics, and its
Earthquake should beat Rapidash. Zapdos will ptobably down Politoed with
two Thunderbolts, and Ho-oh's power and amazing Spec. Def should allow
you to sweep with it.

Battle 5: Fisherman Chase
His team:
Slowbro (Rain Dance, Surf, Body Slam, Thunder Wave *Mystic Water*)
Weezing (Thunder, Explosion, Sludge Bomb, Destiny Bond *Quick Claw*)
Omastar (Rain Dance, Ice Beam, Seismic Toss, Ancientpower *Bright Powder*)
Feraligatr (Rain Dance, Crunch, Rock Slide, Hydro Pump *Focus Band*)
Lanturn (Rain Dance, Thunder, Hydro Pump, Thunder Wave *Scope Lens*)
Quagisre (Rain Dance, Surf, Ice Punch, Earthquake *Leftovers*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Mewtwo, Kingdra
Zapdos' Thunderbolt and Hidden Power will take out a majority of the
Pokemon here. The Hidden Power is especially effective against Quagsire,
Omastar, and Lanturn. Use Mewtwo against Weezing and have Kingdra (being
4x resistant to Water) come along just in case.

Battle 6: Scientist Craig
His team:
Electrode (Swagger, Explosion, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *King's Rock*)
Starmie (Confuse Ray, Psychic, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt *Miracle Berry*)
Crobat (Confuse Ray, Bite, Screech, Mega Drain *Focus Band*)
Umbreon (Confuse Ray, Bite, Psychic, Body Slam *Bright Powder*)
Misdreavus (Confuse Ray, Psychic, Mean Look, Destiny Bond *Gold Berry*)
Stantler (Confuse Ray, Reflect, Earthquake, Frustration *Leftovers*)

Recommended: Machamp, Tyranitar, Zapdos
Machamp's Cross Chop is a prime weapon against Umbreon and Stantler.
Tyranitar's Earthquake should handle Electrode, and Crunch will beat
Misdreavus (just don't get Destiny Bonded). Starmie will probably go down
to Zapdos' Thunderbolt, as well as Crobat.

Battle 7: Skier Kathy
Her team:
Jolteon (Bite, Reflect, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *King's Rock*)
Snorlax (Return, Psychic, Earthquake, Thunderbolt *Leftovers*)
Scizor (Agility, Reversal, Steel Wing, Swords Dance *Gold Berry*)
Kingdra (Surf, Icy Wind, Ice Beam, Dragonbreath *Focus Band*)
Suicune (Surf, Icy Wind, Blizzard, Mirror Coat *Mystic Water*)
Tyranitar (Crunch, Ice Beam !CI!, Fire Blast, Hyper Beam *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Machamp, Ho-oh, Kingdra
Machamp's Earthquake should handle Jolteon, and you can use Cross Chop on
Snorlax and Tyranitar. Ho-oh should handle Scizor without problems, and
should put a serious dent in Suicune with SunnyBeam. Kingdra is along to
take part in a mirror match against Kathy's Kingdra.

Battle 8: Cooltrainer Marty
His team:
Persian (Bite, Hypnosis, Body Slam, Thunderbolt *King's Rock*)
Machamp (Foresight, Cross Chop, Earthquake, Hyper Beam *Focus Band*)
Gengar (Hypnosis, Night Shade, Confuse Ray, Destiny Bond *PRZCure Berry*)
Lapras (Rest, Body Slam, Thunderbolt, Confuse Ray *Leftovers*)
Raikou (Dig, Crunch, Reflect, Thunderbolt !CI! *Quick Claw*)
Celebi (Psychic, Leech Seed, Giga Drain, Hidden Power *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Machamp, Mewtwo, Ho-oh
First question: How the HECK did Marty get a Celebi? If he gets one, I want
one too... anyway, use Machamp against Persian (Cross Chop) and Raikou
(Earthquake). Mewtwo should go against Machamp and Gengar (Psychic). As for
Lapras and Celebi, Sunny Day and Solarbeam/Sacred Fire will leave the two
Pokemon unconscious.

Just when you thought it was safe to relax, it's time for the R2 Challenge
Cup.

c) Challenge Cup

Combine the randomness of the Challenge Cup with the incredible luck the
CPU gets in R2, and you'll probably be pulling your hair out by the end
of the Ultra Ball. Good luck.

For those who didn't need my little hints in R1, here they are again.

- Stick close to the Reset button on the N64. That way, you can pull out
if the team is absolutely horrible.
- Try to get as many of the different types represented as possible in
terms of attacks. A minimum of 12 types should be represented well.
- Don't worry about violating Item Clause. The items are random as well.
*kicks Game Freak*
- Every trainer will have one or two Pokemon that go against the fabric of
the team, so be prepared.
- Uh... hope for some huge luck, as you will need it.

Here's the Pokemon that the CPU will choose from for each cup. (Some of
these Pokemon are from personal observation, the remaining gaps are filled
in by Nintendo Power's Pokemon Stadium 2 guide.)

Now that the Challenge Cup has been cleared (good riddance to bad rubbish),
let's move to the Poke Cup.

d) Poke Cup

Poke Cup R2 has been traditionally the hardest cup to win, and so it
continues in Pokemon Stadium 2. I wish you the best.

A quick review of the Poke Cup rules:
Pokemon must be within levels 50-55 to enter
246 Pokemon (no Super-Legendaries; Mewtwo, Mew, Celebi, Ho-oh, Lugia) are
eligible
Enter with a full team, choose three to battle
The level total of the three chosen Pokemon must be less than 155
Clauses: Sleep, Freeze, Kamikaze, Species, and Item

For the team, go with almost the same squad that got you through the first
Poke Cup.

Machamp (Cross Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Light Screen *Bitter Berry*)
L51
Jolteon (Thunder Wave, Thunderbolt, Hidden Power ^Grass^, Reflect *Miracle
Berry*) L53
Houndoom (Crunch, Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Flamethrower *Focus Band*) L51
Kingdra (Surf, Return, Ice Beam, Dragonbreath *Leftovers*) L51
Marowak (Screech, Rock Slide, Earthquake, Hidden Power ^Bug^ *Thick Club*)
L51

That's the basic five. In the Poke and Ultra Balls, go with Alakazam:
Psychic, Recover, Thunder Wave, Seismic Toss *PRZCure Berry* at L51.
For the Great and Master Balls, I recommended a Dodrio w/Haze, Body Slam,
Drill Peck, Steel Wing *PRZCure Berry* at L51.

As per usual, make sure you've got near-max stat Pokemon for this. All
your Hidden Powers are base 70 (I hope). And one piece of advice: Try to
avoid sending Kingdra out after Houndoom.

Let's go.

Poke Ball

Battle 1: Bug Catcher Nelson
His team:
Kakuna (Harden, Poison Sting *Burnt Berry*) L50
Weepinbell (Slam, Razor Leaf, Stun Spore, Sweet Scent *Miracle Seed*) L50
Scyther (Slash, Steel Wing, Wing Attack, Swords Dance *Mint Berry*) L50
Ledyba (Agility, Reflect, Ice Punch, Thunderpunch *PRZCure Berry*) L50
Ariados (Psychic, Constrict, Scary Face, Night Shade *Berry Juice*) L50
Yanma (Endure, Headbutt, Sonicboom, Giga Drain *Bitter Berry*) L50

Recommended: Houndoom, Alakazam, Marowak
Houndoom's Flamethrower will be super-effective against all of the Bug
and Grass Pokemon that Nelson brings. Some people never learn... there's
a lot of Poison, so bring Alakazam along. Marowak can destroy Scyther and
Yanma with Rock Slide.

Battle 2: Swimmer (M) Bruce
His team:
Dewgong (Rain Dance, Surf, Ice Beam, Headbutt *Quick Claw*) L51
Seadra (Rain Dance, Surf, Ice Beam, Double-Edge *Focus Band*) L50
Seaking (Rain Dance, Surf, Swift, Agility *Scope Lens*) L51
Lanturn (Rain Dance, Surf, Spark, Confuse Ray *Mystic Water*) L51
Azumarill (Rain Dance, Surf, Iron Tail, Double-Edge *Gold Berry*) L50
Qwilfish (Rain Dance, Surf, Pin Missile, Sludge Bomb *King's Rock*) L50

Recommended: Jolteon, Houndoom, Marowak
You might think I'm nuts for brining two Water-weak Pokemon in a Rain Dance
team, but work with me. Jolteon's Thunderbolt and Hidden Power will make
short work of the team anyway. If Jolteon does faint as a result of
powered-up Surf attacks, use Houndoom's SunnyBeam on the Water(/Ice)
Pokemon, and give Marowak Sunny Day protection before launching Earthquake
on Lanturn and Qwilfish.

Battle 3: Hiker Chester
His team:
Butterfree (Swift, Psybeam, Safeguard, Stun Spore *Bitter Berry*) L51
Sandslash (Rollout, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Fury Cutter *Hard Stone*) L51
Graveler (Rollout, Fire Punch, Earthquake, Selfdestruct *Focus Band*) L51
Hitmonchan (Fire Punch, Mach Punch, Dynamicpunch, Thunderpunch *Quick
Claw*) L51
Kabutops (Dig, Surf, Rollout, Fury Cutter *PRZCure Berry*) L51
Sunflora (Solarbeam, Sunny Day, Synthesis, Frustration *King's Rock*) L51

Recommended: Kindgra, Alakazam, Houndoom
Kingdra's Surf will lay a massive hurt on the Ground Pokemon. Use Alakazam
against Hitmonchan and as a special sweeper, while Houndoom's SunnyBeam
takes out Kabutops and its Flamethrower roasts Butterfree and Sunflora.

Battle 4: Super Nerd Clifford
His team:
Electrode (Swaager, Screech, Explosion, Thunder Wave *King's Rock*) L51
Porygon (Swagger, Toxic, Psych Up, Tri Attack *Berry Juice*) L51
Misdreavus (Confuse Ray, Screech, Thunder, Pain Split *Quick Claw*) L51
Pineco (Swagger, Protect, Giga Drain, Double Team *Focus Band*) L52
Miltank (Swagger, Surf, Stomp, Psych Up *PRZCure Berry*) L51
Pupitar (Swagger, Screech, Headbutt, Sandstorm *Gold Berry*) L52

Recommended: Machamp, Houndoom, Marowak
Machamp isn't just leading because of its ability to take 5 of the 6
Pokemon Clifford uses (Cross Chop Miltank/Porygon/Pupitar, Earthquake
Electrode, Rock Slide Pineco), but if they hit Swagger, your Bitter Berry
will kick in and put the attack stat somewhere in the range of 280.
Houndoom can Crunch out Missy, and Marowak can back Machamp up.

Battle 5: Beauty Alissa
Her team:
Pidgeotto (Attract, Toxic, Wing Attack, Quick Attack *Gold Berry*) L50
Wigglytuff (Attract, Charm, Psychic, Thunder *Bitter Berry*) L50
Marowak (Attract, Rage, Bone Rush, Skull Bash *Soft Sand*) L54
Togetic (Attract, Fire Blast, Steel Wing, Shadow Ball *Focus Band*) L51
Sudowoodo (Attract, Ice Punch, Fire Punch, Thunderpunch *Miracle Berry*)
L51
Delibird (Attract, Fly, Present, Aurora Beam *Quick Claw*) L54

Recommended: Machamp, Kingdra, Jolteon
Machamp will have no problems sweeping (sound familiar?). Cross Chop will
beat Sudowoodo and Wigglytuff, while Rock Slide takes all of the Flying
Pokemon. Kingdra's Surf will make Marowak a soggy mess. If somehow Machamp
goes down, Jolteon can pick up the slack.

Battle 6: Burgular Jensen
Ninetales (Dig, Iron Tail, Safeguard, Confuse Ray *Bitter Berry*) L55
Rapidash (Stomp, Swift, Iron Tail, Flame Wheel *Bright Powder*) L50
Quilava (Mud-Slap, Headbutt, Iron Tail, Flame Wheel *Quick Claw*) L50
Dunsparce (Glare, Thief, Headbutt, Iron Tail *no item*) L50
Gligar (Thief, Iron Tail, Faint Attack, Quick Attack *no item*) L50
Steelix (Crunch, Mud-Slap, Iron Tail, Rock Throw *Focus Band*) L55

Recommended: Kingdra, Marowak, Machamp
Another sweep, this time by Kingdra. Surf out all of the Fire/Steel Pokemon,
and Ice Beam Gligar. Marowak can also Earthquake them out. If Dunsparce
enters, greet it with Machamp's Cross Chop.

Battle 7: Boarder Claude
His team:
Clefable (Charm, Blizzard, Mega Kick, Mega Punch *Mint Berry*) L52
Chansey (Icy Wind, Strength, Iron Tail, Seismic Toss *Focus Band*) L53
Kangaskhan (Body Slam, Mega Kick, Mega Punch, Thunderpunch *Gold Berry*) L52
Mr. Mime (Encore, Reflect, Psybeam, Ice Punch *Berry Juice*) L53
Dragonair (Twister, Icy Wind, Waterfall, Dragonbreath *PRZCure Berry*) L50
Sneasel (Reflect, Icy Wind, Faint Attack, Shadow Ball *Leftovers*) L50

Recommended: Machamp, Kingdra, Houndoom
In this semi-final, use Machamp against Sneasel and all of the Normal
Pokemon. Kingdra should handle Dragonair without difficulty (though
you'll learn that there is a type super-effective against Kingdra, and
it's Dragon), and Houndoom will be able to Crunch out Mr. Mime.

Battle 8: Psychic Mason
His team:
Primeape (Low Kick, Headbutt, Iron Tail, Cross Chop *PRZCure Berry*) L52
Slowbro (Surf, Psychic, Tri Attack, Thunder Wave *Pink Bow*) L52
Meganium (Reflect, Safeguard, Razor Leaf, Ancientpower *Miracle Berry*) L52
Quagsire (Dig, Surf, Iron Tail, Sludge Bomb *Focus Band*) L51
Stantler (Stomp, Psychic, Hypnosis, Confuse Ray *Bitter Berry*) L51
Smeargle (Spore, Aeroblast, Super Fang, Sacred Fire *Quick Claw*) L52

Recommended: Houndoom, Alakazam, Machamp
Finally, the finals. Houndoom's SunnyBeam will handle the Water Pokemon,
and Flamethrower will torch Meganium. Machamp's Cross Chop will handle the
Normals (keep in mind, Smeargle can learn EVERYTHING, so that moveset's
legal), and Alakazam will beat Primeape.

Great Ball

Don't forget to switch Alakazam for Dodrio: Haze is quite important in this
round.

Battle 1: Pokefan Carmen
Her team:
Tangela (Growth, Headbutt, Mega Drain, Sleep Powder *Miracle Seed*) L51
Noctowl (Fly, Flash, Reflect, Take Down *Gold Berry) L52
Sunflora (Return, Synthesis, Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb *Focus Band*) L51
Qwilfish (Toxic, Minimize, Hydro Pump, Sludge Bomb *Bitter Berry*) L52
Shuckle (Dig, Bide, Encore, Frustration *Berry Juice*) L51
Octillery (Swift, Lock-On, Mud-Slap, Octazooka *Berry*) L52

Recommended: Jolteon, Houndoom, Dodrio
Jolteon's Thunderbolt will handle the Water-and-Flying Pokemon, and
Houndoom's Flamethrower will lay the smack down on Sunflora and Tangela.
As for Shuckle, Dodrio's Steel Wing attack will be super-effective on him,
so go with it.

Battle 2: Youngster Wyatt
His team:
Fearow (Endure, Scary Face, Steel Wing, Mirror Move *Bitter Berry*) L50
Kingler (Dig, Mud-Slap, Strength, Crabhammer *Focus Band*) L54
Rhyhorn (Thunder, Reversal, Headbutt, Scary Face *Bright Powder*) L54
Ditto (Transform *Quick Claw*) L51
Ariados (Solarbeam, Scary Face, Night Shade, Sludge Bomb *Blackbelt*) L50
Granbull (Bite, Lick, Headbutt, Scary Face *Blackglasses*) L51

Recommended: Machamp, Marowak, Jolteon
OK, this is driving me nuts. Why does every trainer have at least one
Normal Pokemon on it? Use Machamp's Cross Chop against Granbull, and its
Rock Slide on Ariados. Jolteon can probably faint Fearow and Kingler in
one Thunderbolt. Marowak will have few problems with Rhyhorn, and if you
let Ditto transform into Jolteon, Marowak can beat that too.

Battle 3: Firebreather Cliff
His team:
Ninetales (Sunny Day, Dig, Fire Blast, Confuse Ray *Bitter Berry*) L55
Lickitung (Sunny Day, Lick, Fire Blast, Shadow Ball *Leftovers*) L50
Magmar (Sunny Day, Karate Chop, Smokescreen, Flamethrower *Gold Berry*) L55
Bellossom (Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Stun Spore, Double-Edge *Mint Berry*) L50
Magcargo (Sunny Day, Acid Armor, Earthquake, Flamethrower *Quick Claw*) L50
Hitmontop (Sunny Day, Mach Punch, Rolling Kick, Hidden Power *Beserk Gene*)
L50

Recommended: Marowak, Dodrio, Machamp
Marowak's Earthquake will drill the Fire(/Rock) Pokemon, and isn't affected
by Sunny Day. Dodrio's Drill Peck should do good damage to Bellossom and
Hitmontop (I suspect the Hidden Power is Fire, as that would go with the
theme. I can't confirm it because Dodrio KOed Hitmontop before it could
use it. :)) Machamp can beat Lickitung around with Cross Chop.

Battle 4: Biker Dillon
His team:
Nidoking (Toxic, Protect, Beat Up, Shadow Ball *Leftovers*) L52
Parasect (Dig, Spore, Screech, Sludge Bomb *Mint Berry*) L51
Cloyster (Toxic, Protect, Clamp, Supersonic *Bright Powder*) L52
Weezing (Toxic, Protect, Fire Blast, Selfdestruct *Gold Berry*) L52
Ampharos (Toxic, Protect, Strength, Thunderbolt *PRZCure Berry*) L51
Skarmory (Toxic, Protect, Pursuit, Hidden Power *Quick Claw*) L51

Recommended: Dodrio, Jolteon, Marowak
Dodrio with the Miracle Berry is a major asset in this round. Use Drill
Peck on Parasect and Steel Wing on Cloyster. Jolteon's Thunderbolt should
OHKO Skarmory. As for the rest, Marowak's Earthquake should handle them
all (just don't let Weezing Selfdestruct you).

Battle 5: Teacher Molly
Her team:
Sandslash (Dig, Swift, Counter, Dynamicpunch *Soft Sand*) L52
Venomoth (Baton Pass, Giga Drain, Stun Spore, Double Team *King's Rock*) L53
Mr. Mime (Baton Pass, Psybeam, Hypnosis, Double Team *Focus Band*) L52
Girafarig (Baton Pass, Stomp, Agility, Double Team *Quick Claw*) L50
Stantler (Stomp, Reflect, Earthquake, Confuse Ray *Gold Berry*) L50
Smeargle (Blizzard, Megahorn, Thunderbolt, Hi Jump Kick *Berry Juice*) L52

Recommended: Dodrio, Houndoom, Machamp
This time, it's Dodrio's Haze that is your biggest weapon. Use it when the
BP chain looks about to end, and you'll mess Molly up. Use Dodrio on
Venomoth, Houndoom on Mr. Mime, Girafarig, and Sandslash (SunnyBeam), and
Machamp on the two Normals.

Battle 6: Sage Chen
His team:
Golbat (Mean Look, Thief, Wing Attack, Confuse Ray *Focus Band*) L52
Tentacruel (Wrap, Surf, Toxic, Sludge Bomb *Bitter Berry*) L52
Dewgong (Whirlpool, Headbutt, Ice Beam, Perish Song *Gold Berry*) L51
Muk (Mean Look, Screech, Swagger, Sludge Bomb *Quick Claw*) L51
Umbreon (Mean Look, Toxic, Detect, Psychic *Twistedspoon*) L51
Misdreavus (Mean Look, Protect, Headbutt, Perish Song *PRZCure Berry*) L52

Recommended: Jolteon, Machamp, Houndoom
More fun with Trapping... this time, the inaccurate Wrap and Whirlpool
are mixed in. Use Jolteon's Thunderbolt against the Water and Flying
Pokemon, Machamp against Muk and Umbreon (Psychic isn't a threat), and
Houndoom against Misdreavus.

Battle 7: Pokefan Baxter
His team:
Venusaur (Headbutt, Razor Leaf, Sweet Scent, Light Screen *Bitter Berry*)
L50
Kadabra (Headbutt, Reflect, Fire Punch, Future Sight *Scope Lens*) L54
Magneton (Swift, Thunder, Sonicboom, Thunder Wave *Magnet*) L51
Chansey (Headbutt, Sing, Icy Wind, Fire Blast *Bright Powder*) L50
Kabutops (Dig, Surf, Giga Drain, Ancientpower *King's Rock*) L51
Mantine (Headbutt, Surf, Wing Attack, Confuse Ray *Quick Claw*) L54

Recommedned: Houndoom, Jolteon, Machamp
Houndoom's Crunch will beat Alakazam, and its Flamethrower should down
Venusaur. Use Jolteon's Thunderbolt against the two Water Pokemon, and
Machamp should handle Magneton with Earthquake and Chansey with Cross
Chop.

Battle 8: Pokemaniac Pedro
His team:
Exeggutor (Psychic, Giga Drain, Stun Spore, Sludge Bomb *Focus Band*) L55
Hitmonlee (Toxic, Foresight, Mach Punch, Hi Jump Kick *Berry Juice*) L50
Vaporeon (Haze, Surf, Iron Tail, Aurora Beam *Bright Powder*) L50
Dragonite (Return, Wing Attack, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Gold Berry*) L55
Ursaring (Slash, Fire Punch, Faint Attack, Seismic Toss *Leftovers*) L50
Donphan (Mud-Slap, Body Slam, Earthquake, Hyper Beam *Quick Claw*) L50

Recommended: Kingdra, Machamp, Dodrio
Just be glad you won't see both Eggy and Dragonite... one is bad enough.
Kingdra's Ice Beam will do severe damage to them both. Also, use Surf
on Donphan. Machamp should take on Vaporeon and Ursaring with Cross Chop
(it won't be super-effective on Vap, but it's the best you got). Dodrio
should take Hitmonlee and act as backup if Eggy faints Kingdra or Vaporeon
faints Machamp.

Ultra Ball

Remember to switch Alakazam back for Dodrio in this round.

Battle 1: Bug Catcher Nelson
His team:
Beedrill (Twineedle, Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb, Focus Energy *Scope Lens*)
L51
Venomoth (Gust, Psychic, Giga Drain, Sleep Powder *King's Rock*) L51
Dodrio (Fly, Pursuit, Tri Attack, Supersonic *Magnet*) L51
Omastar (Surf, Mimic, Body Slam, Ancientpower *Quick Claw*) L53
Ledian (Reflect, Supersonic, Giga Drain, Thunderpunch *Bitter Berry*) L51
Yanma (Detect, Headbutt, Reversal, Giga Drain *Bright Powder*) L53

Recommended: Marowak, Houndoom, Jolteon
Use Marowak's Rock Slide or Houndoom's Flamethrower to drill all of the
Bug Pokemon. Nail Dodrio and Omastar with Jolteon's Thunderbolt. That
ought to do it.

Battle 2: Swimmer Bruce
His team:
Raichu (Rain Dance, Thunder, Strength, Thunder Wave *Gold Berry*) L50
Cloyster (Rain Dance, Surf, Ice Beam, Explosion *Pink Bow*) L52
Seaking (Rain Dance, Surf, Flail, Frustration *Nevermelt Ice*) L50
Dunsparce (Glare, Return, Swagger, Psych Up *Focus Band*) L53
Corsola (Rain Dance, Surf, Psychic, Earthquake *Bitter Berry*) L52
Mantine (Rain Dance, Toxic, Take Down, Hydro Pump *Mystic Water*) L53

Recommended: Jolteon, Marowak, Machamp
Jolteon could sweep in this environment. Use Thunderbolt or Hidden Power
on all of the Water Pokemon (HP recommended for Corsola). Raichu's DOA
in one of Marowak's Earthquakes, and Machamp should handle Dunsparce.

Battle 3: Hiker Chester
His team:
Clefable (Rest, Snore, Iron Tail, Shadow Ball *Miracle Berry*) L50
Rapidash (Reflect, Body Slam, Iron Tail, Horn Drill *Focus Band*) L54
Lickitung (Rest, Sleep Talk, Earthquake, Thunderbolt *Gold Berry*) L51
Furret (Rollout, Headbutt, Focus Energy, Thunderpunch *Magnet*) L50
Azumarill (Rest, Sleep Talk, Surf, Dynamicpunch *King's Rock*) L51
Slowking (Rest, Sleep Talk, Psychic, Double-Edge *Mint Berry*) L54

Recommended: Jolteon, Machamp, Kingdra
Two Waters, three Normals, and a Fire... a little out of character for a
Hiker, no? Use Jolteon's Thunderbolt on the Waters, Machamp's Cross Chop
on the Normals, and Kingdra's Surf on the Rapidash.

Battle 4: Super Nerd Clifford
His team:
Raticate (Toxic, Blizzard, Iron Tail, Hyper Fang *Polkadot Bow*) L50
Dugtrio (Slash, Mud-Slap, Earthquake, Double Team *Focus Band*) L50
Magneton (Reflect, Take Down, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Gold Berry*) L55
Lanturn (Surf, Take Down, Confuse Ray, Thunderbolt *Berry Juice*) L50
Forretress (Toxic, Protect, Explosion, Giga Drain *Scope Lens*) L50
Porygon2 (Recover, Tri Attack, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Pink Bow*) L55

Recommended: Kingdra, Machamp, Houndoom
Oy... use Kingdra against Dugtrio and Lanturn (use Dragonbreath or Return).
Houndoom should annihilate Forretress with Flamethrower. Machamp's
Cross Chop will beat Raticate and Porygon2, while Earthquake will beat
Magneton around.

Battle 5: Beauty Alissa
Her team:
Nidoqueen (Attract, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Double Kick *Berry Juice*) L52
Wigglytuff (Attract, Body Slam, Sweet Kiss, Thunderpunch *Pink Bow*) L52
Vileplume (Atract, Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb, Swords Dance *Miracle Seed*) L52
Flareon (Attract, Fire Blast, Double-Edge, Shadow Ball *Miracle Berry*) L52
Politoed (Attract, Haze, Surf, Psychic *Quick Claw*) L51
Jumpluff (Attract, Headbutt, Giga Drain, Leech Seed *Focus Band*) L51

Recommended: Kingdra, Machamp, Jolteon
Kingdra's Surf and Ice Beam attacks will score faints on Nidoqueen, Flareon,
Vileplume, and Jumpluff. Machamp can Cross Chop Wigglytuff into next week,
and Jolteon should shock Politoed down.

Battle 6: Burgular Jensen
His team:
Persian (Thief, Hypnosis, Body Slam, Iron Tail *no item*) L51
Pinsir (Thief, Submission, Frustration, Swords Dance *no item*) L51
Gyarados (Bite, Fire Blast, Hydro Pump, Hyper Beam *Quick Claw*) L51
Moltres (Detect, Reflect, Fire Blast, Sky Attack *Focus Band*) L53
Murkrow (Thief, Night Shade, Mirror Move, Shadow Ball *no item*) L53
Steelix (Body Slam, Explosion, Sandstorm, Rock Slide *Polkadot Bow*) L51

Recommended: Jolteon, Machamp, Houndoom
Use Jolteon's Thunderbolt on all of the Flying Pokemon. Machamp's Cross
Chop will beat Persian and Steelix, while Houndoom's Flamethrower should
burn Pinsir out.

Battle 7: Boarder Claude
His team:
Golduck (Surf, Psychic, Hypnosis, Cross Chop !CI! *Gold Berry*) L50
Kangaskhan (Icy Wind, Reversal, Earthquake, Shadow Ball *King's Rock*) L52
Articuno (Return, Ice Beam, Icy Wind, Hidden Power *Quick Claw*) L52
Zapdos (Drill Peck, Steel Wing, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Bright Powder*)
L53
Sneasel (Surf, Swagger, Headbutt, Shadow Ball *Bitter Berry*) L50
Blissey (Reflect, Icy Wind, Thunderbolt, Seismic Toss *Leftovers*) L53

Recommended: Machamp, Marowak, Jolteon
Machamp's Cross Chop will beat down Sneasel, Blissey, and Kangaskhan. Also,
use Rock Slide against Articuno. Marowak's Rock Slide will beat Zapdos
pretty handily, and Jolteon's Thunderbolt will mess up Golduck *quack*.

Battle 8: Psychic Mason
His team:
Blastoise (Haze, Ice Beam !CI!, Earthquake, Mirror Coat *Gold Berry*) L51
Primeape (Cross Chop, Rock Slide, Thunderbolt, Seismic Toss *King's Rock*)
L50
Jolteon (Bite, Pin Missile, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Light Ball*) L50
Xatu (Psych Up, Drill Peck, Confuse Ray, Night Shade *Quick Claw*) L51
Espeon (Psychic, Reflect, Body Slam, Morning Sun *Miracle Berry*) L54
Heracross (Megahorn, Reversal, Earthquake, Hidden Power *Focus Band*) L54

Recommended: Jolteon, Houndoom, Alakazam
I don't know of any way to breed both Mirror Coat AND Haze to Blastoise
(several of the world's leading authorities in breeding have tried it,
to no avail), so Mason's obviously got a hold of Lance's Gameshark. Use
Jolteon's Thunderbolt against Blastoise and Xatu. Alakazam takes the two
Fighters and can back up Jolteon if it dies to an Earthquake or Mirror Coat
attack. Sic Houndoom on the Psychic Pokemon.

Master Ball

Switch Alakazam for Dodrio again, and get ready for the toughest eight
fights in the game. If max stats were nice before, they are REQUIRED here.
Good luck.

Battle 1: Pokefan Carmen
Her team:
Clefable (Encore, Return, Metronome, Moonlight *Quick Claw*) L55
Victreebel (Encore, Razor Leaf, Frustration, Sleep Powder *Miracle Seed*)
L50
Golem (Body Slam, Explosion, Metronome, Rock Throw *Berry Juice*) L50
Dewgong (Encore, Icy Wind, Headbutt, Safeguard *Focus Band*) L50
Hypno (Hypnosis, Metronome, Fire Punch, Future Sight *King's Rock*) L55
Pilowswine (Ice Beam !CI!, Icy Wind, Earthquake, Hidden Power *Gold Berry*)
L50

Recommended: Machamp, Houndoom, Jolteon
Once again, use Cross Chop on Clefable, Pilowswine, and Golem. Houndoom's
Flamethrower will burn Victreebel to a crisp, and its Crunch should handle
Hypno. Finish with Jolteon against Dewgong.

Battle 2: Youngster Wyatt
His team:
Fearow (Scary Face, Drill Peck, Tri Attack, Mirror Move *Bitter Berry*) L52
Rhydon (Scary Face, Ice Beam, Rock Slide, Seismic Toss *Bright Powder*) L51
Tauros (Scary Face, Earthquake, Double-Edge, Thunderbolt *Focus Band*) L52
Feraligatr (Scary Face, Dig, Slash, Crunch *Pink Bow*) L51
Ariados (Scary Face, Psychic, Giga Drain, Night Shade *Quick Claw*) L52
Granbull (Scary Face, Crunch, Shadow Ball, Thunderpunch *Blackglasses*) L52

Recommended: Machamp, Dodrio, Jolteon
Two Normal types means two more Cross Chop victims. Jolteon's Thunderbolt
attack will damage Fearow and Feraligatr quite nicely, and Dodrio can
Drill Peck Dodrio while Hazing away those nasty Speed reductions.

Battle 3: Firebreather Cliff
His team:
Charizard (Iron Tail, Belly Drum, Fire Blast, Hyper Beam *King's Rock*) L53
Nidoqueen (Blizzard, Fire Blast, Earthquake, Dynamicpunch *Gold Berry*) L51
Exeggutor (Sunny Day, Headbutt, Solarbeam, Synthesis *Focus Band*) L51
Typhlosion (Sunny Day, Dig, Reversal, Flamethrower *Bright Powder*) L53
Slowking (Surf, Psychic, Fire Blast, Shadow Ball *Leftovers*) L51
Blissey (Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Fire Blast, Thunderbolt *Quick Claw*) L51

Recommended: Marowak, Machamp, Houndoom
Marowak's Earthquake attack coupled with the Thick Club will toast most
of the Fire Pokemon. Charizard should go down to Rock Slide. Machamp
can take Blissey with Cross Chop, and Houndoom can either Crunch the two
Psychics, or Flamethrower Eggy while SunnyBeaming Slowking.

Battle 4: Biker Dillon
His team:
Muk (Toxic, Protect, Giga Drain, Sludge Bomb *Poison Barb*) L55
Weezing (Haze, Explosion, Fire Blast, Sludge Bomb *Pink Bow*) L50
Vaporeon (Toxic, Bite, Haze, Surf *Leftovers*) L55
Ampharos (Toxic, Reflect, Body Slam, Thunderbolt *Focus Band*) L50
Skarmory (Toxic, Agility, Drill Peck, Steel Wing *Metal Coat*) L50
Miltank (Toxic, Body Slam, Earthquake, Shadow BalL *King's Rock*) L50

Recommended: Marowak, Machamp, Jolteon
The pure-Poisons and Ampharos will be dropped by Marowak's Earthquake.
Send Jolteon out against Vaporeon and Skarmory, while Machamp can KO
Miltank with Cross Chop. (Get used to Machamp; there's Fighting-weak
Pokemon in every fight except the semi-finals.)

Battle 5: Teacher Molly
Her team:
Raticate (Icy Wind, Hyper Fang, Super Fang, Shadow Ball *King's Rock*) L50
Arcanine (Dig, Crunch, Fire Blast, Extremespeed *Pink Bow*) L54
Mr. Mime (Baton Pass, Psychic, Hypnosis, Double Team *Gold Berry*) L51
Quagsire (Surf, Return, Swagger, Ice Beam !CI! *Focus Band*) L54
Girafarig (Baton Pass, Agility, Earthquake, Double Team *Miracle Berry*)
L51
Scizor (Baton Pass, Agility, Steel Wing, Baton Pass *Quick Claw*) L50

Recommended: Houndoom, Machamp, Dodrio
Houndoom's entire aresanal will come into play here. Flamethrower will
roast Scizor, Crunch will beat the Psychics, and SunnyBeam is your best
hope against Quagsire. Machamp beats Raticate with Cross Chop and Arcanine
with Earthquake, and Dodrio can Haze away all the stat-uppers if it gets
going.

Battle 6: Sage Chen
His team:
Jynx (Mean Look, Protect, Blizzard, Perish Song *Quick Claw*) L50
Lapras (Whirlpool, Psychic, Perish Song, Thunderbolt *Leftovers*) L53
Crobat (Mean Look, Bite, Toxic, Confuse Ray *King's Rock*) L50
Umbreon (Mean Look, Psychic, Confuse Ray, Faint Attack *Gold Berry*) L52
Misdreavus (Mean Look, Psybeam, Confuse Ray, Perish Song *Focus Band*) L52
Entei (Stomp, Solarbeam, Fire Blast, Hyper Beam *Miracle Berry*) L53

Recommended: Houndoom, Jolteon, Machamp
Take a Crunch out of Jynx and Misdreavus' rear ends with Houndoom... they
are evil Perish Trappers. Jolteon's Thunderbolt should handle Lapras and
Crobat. As for Umbreon and Entei, Machamp's Cross Chop and Earthquake
attacks will finish them off.

Battle 7: Pokefan Baxter
His team:
Alakazam (Psychic, Reflect, Fire Punch, Thunderpunch *Polkadot Bow*) L52
Rapidash (Stomp, Body Slam, Fire Blast, Horn Drill *Leftovers*) L52
Electrode (Headbutt, Explosion, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Scope Lens*) L51
Marowak (Iron Tail, Rock Slide, Earthquake, Flamethrower !CI! *Thick Club*)
L52
Aerodactyl (Bite, Mimic, Headbutt, Earthquake *Bright Powder*) L52
Suicune (Dig, Surf, Return, Icy Wind *Pink Bow*) L51

Recommended: Kingdra, Jolteon, Marowak
Kingdra's Surf will beat down Rapidash, Marowak, and Aerodactyl. Marowak's
Earthquake will knock Electrode out, and its Hidden Power should smoke
Alakazam (paralyze it with Jolteon first: I don't think Marowak can take
two Psychics from that thing). Jolteon should KO Suicune in two T-Bolts.

Battle 8: Pokemaniac Pedro
His team:
Machamp (Cross Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Seismic Toss *Blackbelt*) L50
Gengar (Submission, Confuse Ray, Night Shade, Destiny Bond *Quick Claw*) L50
Starmie (Surf, Psychic, Thunderbolt, Confuse Ray *Focus Band*) L50
Electabuzz (Psychic, Cross Chop !CI!, Fire Punch, Thunderbolt *Miracle
Berry*) L50
Snorlax (Rest, Snore, Belly Drum, Earthquake *Leftovers*) L55
Dragonite (Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Extremespeed !CI!, Flamethrower !CI!
*King's Rock*) L55

Recommended: Machamp, Kingdra, Jolteon
This is it... the final battle! Use Machamp on the other Machamp, along
with Kingdra. Machamp should also beat down Gengar (Earthquake, don't get
Destiny Bonded), Electabuzz (Earthquake, watch for Psychic), and Snorlax
(who'll kill itself with Belly Drum). Use Kingdra on Dragonite, as
Ice Beam will be hyper-effective against it. Finish Starmie with Jolteon.

YES!! IT'S OVER!! Now that the Stadium is clear, it's time for the Gym
Leader Castle.

e) Johto Gym Leader Castle

Welcome back. Since you defeated Johto and Kanto, they've improved the
movesets and strategy. Let the show begin.

A quick rules refresher for the Gym Leader Castle:
No level restrictions
Opposing Pokemon will be the same level as your highest level Pokemon
(ex: If you enter with a team of L60 Pokemon and your L70 Lugia, all of
the Gym Pokemon will be L70)
All 251 Pokemon (even Legendaries) are eligible
Enter with a full team, choose three to battle
Clauses: Sleep, Freeze, Kamikaze, Species, and Item

My team (raised) for the Gym Leader Castles:
Houndoom (Crunch, Solarbeam, Sunny Day, Flamethrower *Focus Band*)
Kingdra (Surf, Return, Ice Beam, Dragonbreath *Leftovers*)
Zapdos (Drill Peck, Thunderbolt, Hidden Power ^Grass^, Thunder Wave
*Miracle Berry*)
Mewtwo (Psychic, Recover, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt *PSNCure Berry*)
Machamp (Cross Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Rest *Mint Berry*)
Marowak (Screech, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Hidden Power ^Bug^ *Thick Club*)

2 legends, four familiar faces. My rationale for the choices:
-Houndoom: My main Dark attacker, would work as well as Ho-oh and has the
same Special Attack. Also drops my Rock weakness from 3 to 2.
-Kingdra: Water power, plus his many neutralized weaknesses. Also, has
a Dragon move for Clair.
-Zapdos: Higher Special attack than Jolteon, adds a second Fighting killer.
-Mewtwo: Absolute special sweeper. PSNCure Berry will become known when
Team Rocket shows up.
-Machamp: After the Poke Cup, you know why he's here. Makes a decent Rest-
Berry Pokemon.
-Marowak: Physical power and Electric immunity. The Thick Club gives a
508 Attack rating, and Screech cuts their Defense in half.

Violet Gym:
Bird Keeper Matt ---> Leader Falkner

Matt's team:
Pidgeotto (Mirror Move, Gust, Steel Wing, Quick Attack *Sharp Beak*)
Fearow (Mirror Move, Drill Peck, Tri Attack, Quick Attack *Mint Berry*)
Farfetch'd (Mirror Move, Fly, Flail, Slash *Stick*)
Noctowl (Mirror Move, Confusion, Take Down, Steel Wing *Metal Coat*)
Togetic (Mirror Move, Psychic, Fire Blast, Zap Cannon *PRZCure Berry*)
Murkrow (Mirror Move, Drill Peck, Faint Attack, Quick Attack *Blackglasses*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Mewtwo, Kingdra/Marowak
Zapdos' Thunderbolt should smash all of the Flyers in one hit. Or, use
Mewtwo's Thunderbolt, Kingdra's Ice Beam, or Marowak's Rock Slide.

Falkner's team:
Charizard (Mud-Slap, Fly, Earthquake, Flamethrower *Scope Lens*)
Pidgeot (Mud-Slap, Sky Attack, Steel Wing, Double-Edge *PRZCure Berry*)
Dodrio (Mud-Slap, Drill Peck, Steel Wing, Tri Attack *Miracle Berry*)
Zapdos (Mud-Slap, Drill Peck, Sky Attack, Thunderbolt *Bright Powder*)
Gligar (Metal Claw !CI!, Wing Attack, Quick Attack, Sludge Bomb *Focus
Band*)
Skarmory (Mud-Slap, Drill Peck, Sky Attack, Steel Wing *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Marowak, Kingdra, Zapdos
Falkner loves to lead with Zapdos, so counter with Marowak's Rock Slide.
From there, use Zapdos' Thunderbolt against the other Flyers, and Ice Beam
on Gligar.

Azalea Gym:
Bug Catcher Chaz ---> Twins Min and Lyn ---> Leader Bugsy

Chaz's team:
Butterfree (Gust, Psybeam, Giga Drain, Whirlwind *PRZCure Berry*)
Beedrill (Agility, Twineedle, Double-Edge, Sludge Bomb *Bitter Berry*)
Sandslash (Slash, Counter, Iron Tail, Earthquake *Soft Sand*)
Sunflora (Growth, Giga Drain, Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb *Poison Barb*)
Yanma (Swift, Reversal, Foresight, Wing Attack !CI! *King's Rock*)
Dunsparce (Dig, Glare, Thunderbolt !CI!, Flamethrower !CI! *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Machamp, Mewtwo
Start with Houndoom's Sunny Day, then Flamethrow the Bug and Grass types,
while Solarbeaming Sandslash into next year. Machamp will leave Dunsparce
a twitching mess, and Mewtwo can sweep everything if need be.

Min and Lyn's team:
Nidorina (Charm, Disable, Body Slam, Double Kick *Bitter Berry*)
Ponyta (Charm, Iron Tail, Take Down, Fire Blast *Metal Coat*)
Eevee (Charm, Flail, Double-Edge, Shadow Ball *Spell Tag*)
Ledian (Sweet Scent, Rollout, Giga Drain, Light Screen *PRZCure Berry*)
Pineco (Sweet Scent, Reflect, Rollout, Giga Drain *Mint Berry*)
Snubbull (Charm, Lick, Crunch, Headbutt *Polkadot Bow*)

Recommended: Machamp, Marowak, Tyranitar
Machamp alone could sweep this team. Use Earthquake on Nidorina and Ponyta,
Cross Chop on the baby Normals, and Rock Slide on Ledian and Pineco. Should
that not work, either Marowak or Tyranitar will be effective.

Bugsy's team:
Raticate (Reversal, Roar, Hyper Fang, Super Fang *Miracle Berry*)
Scyther (Reversal, Hyper Beam, Steel Wing, Wing Attack *King's Rock*)
Pinsir (Body Slam, Submission, Fury Cutter, Seismic Toss *Scope Lens*)
Sudowoodo (Low Kick, Strength, Rock Slide, Earthquake *Quick Claw*)
Quagsire (Haze, Surf, Earthquake, Ancientpower *Bright Powder*)
Heracross (Reversal, Megahorn, Take Down, Earthquake *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Kingdra, Machamp
Zapdos' Drill Peck will wipe the floor with the Bug triumvirate (threesome,
for those not well versed in Latin), and Hidden Power should OHKO Quagsire.
Sudowoodo's toast in one Surf from Kingdra, and Raticate will go down to
a Cross Chop from Machamp.

Goldenrod Gym:
Lass Lois ---> Beauty Rita ---> Leader Whitney

Lois' team:
Dugtrio (Magnitude, Tri Attack !CI!, Rock Slide, Sand-Attack *Bitter Berry*)
Porygon (Psychic, Conversion, Tri Attack, Thunderbolt *Magnet*)
Furret (Dig, Slam, Reversal, Quick Attack *Mint Berry*)
Jumpluff (Headbutt, Confusion, Solarbeam, Giga Drain *PRZCure Berry*)
Aipom (Swift, Counter, Iron Tail, Shadow Ball *Miracle Berry*)
Corsola (Psychic, Rock Slide, Bubblebeam, Mirror Coat *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Machamp, Houndoom, Zapdos
If you don't know how to deal with Normals by now, you haven't learned
anything. Cross Chop the Normals, and use Houndoom's Sunny Day and
Flamethrower/Solarbeam attacks to pull out the win. Zapdos can help
out against Corsola.

Rita's team:
Pikachu (Attract, Present, Double Team, Quick Attack *Mint Berry*)
Clefable (Attract, Present, Minimize, Shadow Ball *PRZCure Berry*)
Wigglytuff (Attract, Present, Double Team, Shadow Ball *Bitter Berry*)
Togetic (Attract, Present, Double Team, Encore *Burnt Berry*)
Azumarill (Attract, Present, Double Team, Whirlpool *PSNCure Berry*)
Delibird (Attract, Present, Double Team, Curse *Berry Juice*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Machamp, Marowak
Zappy's lack of gender will help out a lot here, as it messes up 1/3 of
Rita's theme. Also, its Electric attacks will beat Azumarill and the
two Flyers. Send Machamp against the Normal-types and Marowak after the
Pikachu (hereafter referred to as "the rat").

Whitney's team:
Persian (Rage, Slash, Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt *Scope Lens*)
Golduck (Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, Cross Chop !CI! *Bright Powder*)
Mr. Mime (Psychic, Meditate, Baton Pass, Double Team *Miracle Berry*)
Tauros (Stomp, Iron Tail, Scary Face, Earthquake *Focus Band*)
Donphan (Flail, Earthquake, Double-Edge, Ancientpower *Quick Claw*)
Miltank (Stomp, Reversal, Earthquake, Milk Drink *King's Rock*)

Recommended: Machamp, Houndoom, Zapdos
Three Normals = Machamp can own here. If Miltank shows up, paralyze the
sucker with Zappy, or there's going to be trouble. As for the rest,
Houndoom's SunnyBeam and Crunch attacks should handle Donphan, Mr. Mime,
and Golduck rather handily.

Ecruteak Gym:
Medium Holly ---> Sage Ty ---> Leader Morty

Holly's team:
Weepinbell (Slam, Encore, Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb *Mint Berry*)
Gastly (Spite, Psychic, Giga Drain, Night Shade *Spell Tag*)
Seaking (Haze, Psychic, Waterfall, Horn Attack *Gold Berry*)
Ditto (Transform *Metal Powder*)
Noctowl (Foresight, Take Down, Wing Attack, Faint Attck *PRZCure Berry*)
Qwilfish (Surf, Flail, Ice Beam !CI!, Sludge Bomb *Bitter Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Zapdos, Marowak
Mewtwo's Psychic should take out all of the Poisons, and you can use
Thunderbolt on Seaking and Noctowl. As for Ditto, bring out Zapdos,
Thunder Wave it as it Transforms, then send Marowak after it (watch for
that Hidden Power, as it can cause trouble).

Ty's team:
Golbat (Mean Look, Double Team, Steel Wing, Faint Attack *Bitter Berry*)
Grimer (Mean Look, Mud-Slap, Ice Punch, Zap Cannon *Mint Berry*)
Muk (Mean Look, Mud-Slap, Ice Punch, Zap Cannon *Burnt Berry*)
Haunter (Mean Look, Double Team, Curse, Shadow Ball *PRZCure Berry*)
Jynx (Mean Look, Mud-Slap, Shadow Ball, Dynamicpunch *Ice Berry*)
Murkrow (Mean Look, Mud-Slap, Drill Peck, Night Shade *PSNCure Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Houndoom, Zapdos
Maybe it should be Mewtwo, x, and y... Psychic alone should beat down the
Poisons, and he can Thunderbolt Murkrow down. Bring Houndoom along to
Crunch out Jynx, and Zapdos can provide an extra spark (pun intended) for
Murkrow and Golbat.

Morty's team:
Gengar (Psychic, Fire Punch, Confuse Ray, Thunderbolt *King's Rock*)
Exeggutor (Psychic, Giga Drain, Stun Spore, Double-Edge *Quick Claw*)
Lapras (Surf, Ice Beam, Body Slam, Thunderbolt *Miracle Berry*)
Misdreavus (Psychic, Confuse Ray, Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt !CI! *Focus
Band*)
Granbull (Lick, Take Down, Shadow Ball, Sludge Bomb *Scope Lens*)
Mantine (Surf, Ice Beam !CI!, Confuse Ray, Wing Attack *Bright Powder*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Zapdos, Machamp
Crunch Morty's Pokemon three times and follow the gray paved road...
Houndoom's Crunch should be enough to take Eggy, Gengar, and Misdreavus.
The Water-types can be dealt with by a Zapdos Thunderbolt (it'd be
interesting to see how Zapdos and his 348 Spec. Atk matches up against
Mantine's 378 max Spec. Def...) and Machamp beats Granbull.

Cianwood Gym:
Blackbelt Nick ---> Leader Chuck

Nick's team:
Arbok (Rest, Fissure, Rock Slide, Sleep Talk *PRZCure Berry*)
Machoke (Rest, Fissure, Rock Slide, Sleep Talk *Mint Berry*)
Graveler (Rest, Fissure, Rock Slide, Sleep Talk *Hard Stone*)
Kingler (Rest, Sleep Talk, Crabhammer, Guillotine *Mysteryberry*)
Pinsir (Rest, Sleep Talk, Guillotine, Fury Cutter *Bitter Berry*)
Dragonair (Rest, Horn Drill, Sleep Talk, Dragonbreath *Dragon Fang*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Houndoom, Zapdos
Mmm... sweepage. Mewtwo's Psychic will beat Arbok and Machoke, its Ice Beam
will drill Dragonair and Graveler, and Thunderbolt will smash Zapods. Use
Houndoom on Pinsir and Zapdos on the Fissure Pokemon to take some
pressure off (just watch for their Rock Slides).

Chuck's team:
Sandslash (Dynamicpunch, Earthquake, Metal Claw !CI!, Rock Slide *Scope
Lens*)
Poliwrath (Dynamicpunch, Rest, Belly Drum, Sleep Talk *Mint Berry*)
Hypno (Dynamicpunch, Psychic, Light Screen, Shadow Ball *PRZCure Berry*)
Hitmonchan (Dynamicpunch, Pursuit, Mach Punch, Mega Punch *King's Rock*)
Ampharos (Dynamicpunch, Fire Punch, Thunderbolt, Light Screen *Bright
Powder*)
Ursaring (Dynamicpunch, Slash, Crunch, Earthquake *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Machamp, Houndoom
Lead with the super-Psychic and use Ice Beam on Sandslash, while Psychicing
Poliwrath and Hitmonchan. If Ampharos shows up, send Machamp with his
Earthquake; the same goes for Ursaring with Cross Chop. Finally, Houndoom
should be able to Crunch down Hypno.

Olivine Gym:
Leader Jasmine. Her team:
Blastoise (Surf, Ice Beam !CI!, Earthquake, Mirror Coat *Miracle Berry*)
Rapidash (Stomp, Iron Tail, Double Kick, Flamethrower !CI! *King's Rock*)
Slowbro (Surf, Psychic, Ice Beam, Earthquake *Bright Powder*)
Steelix (Return, Iron Tail, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Quick Claw*)
Scizor (Slash, Reversal, Metal Claw, Wing Attack *Focus Band*)
Stantler (Roar, Psychic, Earthquake, Light Screen *PRZCure Berry*)

Recommended: Kingdra, Houndoom, Machamp
Lead with Kingdra, as Steelix will probably lead off for Jasmine. One or
two Surf attacks will do him in. Use Kingdra on Rapidash as well. Houndoom's
SunnyBeam is your hope against the Water Pokemon, and you can Flamethrower
Scizor down. Machamp beats Stantler and, should Blastoise's Mirror Coat
faint Houndoom (likely), finish 'Toise off.

Team Rocket:
Grunt (M) ---> Grunt (F) ---> Executive (F) ---> Executive (M)

Grunt (M)'s team:
Golem (Explosion, Strength, Magnitude, Rock Slide *Focus Band*)
Cloyster (Explosion, Screech, Surf, Ice Beam *Nevermelt Ice*)
Electrode (Explosion, Screech, Mirror Coat, Thunderbolt *Mint Berry*)
Weezing (Explosion, Screech, Sludge, Psybeam *Bitter Berry*)
Sudowoodo (Selfdestruct, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Faint Attack *PRZCure
Berry*)
Forretress (Explosion, Giga Drain, Double-Edge, Pin Missile *Silver Powder*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Houndoom, Marowak
Seeing as you've got no Rock-types to resist the Explosions (or Ghosts to
let them whiff), Speed will have to kill. Use Mewtwo's Psychic on Weezing,
Thunderbolt on Cloyster, and Ice Beam on Golem. Houndoom can smoke
Forretress with Flamethrower, and Marowak can beat Sudowoodo and Electrode
with Earthquake.

Grunt (F)'s team:
Dewgong (Whirlpool, Protect, Aurora Beam, Perish Song *PRZCure Berry*)
Shellder (Clamp, Protect, Toxic, Ice Beam *Mint Berry*)
Onix (Bind, Protect, Toxic, Earthquake *Bitter Berry*)
Azumarill (Whirlpool, Protect, Surf, Perish Song *Mystic Water*)
Shuckle (Wrap, Protect, Dig, Toxic *PSNCure Berry*)
Houndour (Fire Spin, Detect, Toxic, Flamethrower *Charcoal*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Kingdra, Zapdos
Now you know why I've got a PSNCure Berry on Mewtwo. Use Thunderbolt on
the Water-types, and Ice Beam on Onix. Kingdra's Surf will KO Shuckle and
Houndour, and Miracle Berry-equipped Zapdos is the best choice for the
third Pokemon.

Executive (F)'s team:
Arbok (Frustration, Thief, Earthquake, Rock Slide *no item*)
Golbat (Frustration, Thief, Haze, Wing Attack *no item*)
Vileplume (Frustration, Razor Leaf, Petal Dance, Sludge Bomb *Miracle
Berry*)
Victreebel (Frustration, Giga Drain, Razor Leaf, Sludge Bomb *PRZCure
Berry*)
Kabutops (Frustration, Thief, Surf, Ancientpower *Beserk Gene*)
Magcargo (Frustration, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Flamethrower *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Kingdra, Houndoom
Anyone crazy enough to use FOUR Poisons deserves whatever they get. Mewtwo
takes them all the Poisons with Psychic, and can Thunderbolt Kabutops.
Kingdra's Surf will destroy Magcargo, and Houndoom's along for the ride.

Executive (M)'s team:
Parasect (Swagger, Giga Drain, Stun Spore, Sludge Bomb *Bright Powder*)
Hypno (Swagger, Psychic, Shadow Ball, Thunderpunch *PRZCure Berry*)
Wobbuffet (Counter, Safeguard, Mirror Coat, Destiny Bond *Focus Band*)
Octillery (Swagger, Surf, Psybeam, Screech *Scope Lens*)
Houndoom (Crunch, Fire Blast, Solarbeam, Sunny Day *Miracle Berry*)
Tyranitar (Swagger, Screech, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Machamp, Zapdos
Houndoom's Crunch will beat the two Psychics (weaken Wobb with Flamethrower
first: Mirror Coat can kill), and Flamethrower will OHKO Parasect. I stake
my reputation on it. As for the rest, sic Zapdos on Octillery *sniff* and
Machamp on the Dark Pokemon.

Mahogany Gym:
Boarder Alvin ---> Skier Kathy ---> Leader Pryce

Alvin's team:
Venusaur (Roar, Reflect, Body Slam, Razor Leaf *Bitter Berry*)
Kadabra (Encore, Disable, Psybeam, Ice Punch *Twistedspoon*)
Magneton (Mimic, Rollout, Tri Attack !CI!, Thunderbolt *PSNCure Berry*)
Seel (Surf, Encore, Disable, Ice Beam *PRZCure Berry*)
Sneasel (Slash, Counter, Ice Beam !CI!, Shadow Ball *Ice Berry*)
Delibird (Fly, Blizzard, Rapid Spin, Quick Attack *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Machamp, Marowak
Charge up Sunny Day with Houndoom, then Flamethrowe everything in sight and
Crunch out Alakazam. The other two are along to take advantage of 4x
weaknesses (Machamp's Cross Chop on Sneasel and Marowak's Earthquake on
Magneton = ouchie).

Kathy's team:
Raticate (Icy Wind, Bite, Hyper Fang, Blizzard *PRZCure Berry*)
Persian (Icy Wind, Bite, Headbutt, Roar *PSNCure Berry*)
Poliwhirl (Icy Wind, Headbutt, Blizzard, Whirlpool *Bitter Berry*)
Marowak (Icy Wind, Headbutt, Rock Slide, Blizzard *Burnt Berry*)
Seadra (Icy Wind, Twister, Headbutt, Blizzard *King's Rock*)
Omastar (Icy Wind, Bite, Headbutt, Blizzard *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Machamp, Kingdra
Zapdos' Thunder Wave is extremely useful in this match, as it'll mess up
the Icy Wind/flinch strategy. Also, its Thunderbolt will smoke the Water
types, and Hidden Power will beat Marowak. Paralyze the Normal-types,
then send Machamp after them. Kingdra is along for Marowak whuppin'.

Pryce's team:
Tentacruel (Surf, Reflect, Ice Beam !CI!, Mirror Coat *Focus Band*)
Articuno (Fly, Ice Beam, Bubblebeam, Double-Edge *Scope Lens*)
Quagsire (Surf, Ice Beam !CI!, Iron Tail, Earthquake *Bright Powder*)
Girafarig (Psychic, Headbutt, Earthquake, Shadow Ball *PRZCure Berry*)
Pilowswine (Ice Beam, Body Slam, Earthquake, Ancientpower *Quick Claw*)
Hitmontop (Dig, Counter, Strength, Hi Jump Kick *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Zapdos, Mewtwo
Houndoom and Zapdos split the duties here. Use Houndoom's Crunch on
Girafarig, and Flamethrower on the Ice-types. Zapdos can beat Quagsire
with Hidden Power, and can use Thunderbolt and Drill Peck on Tentacruel
and Hitmontop. (Use the other move before the one that would be super-
effective, or you're probably toast.) Mewtwo's power makes it the third
pick.

Blackthorn Gym:
Cooltrainer (F) Gloria ---> Cooltrainer (M) Vince ---> Leader Clair

Gloria's team:
Ninetales (Hypnosis, Fire Spin, Faint Attack, Flamethrower *Burnt Berry*)
Golduck (Hypnosis, Whirlpool, Psychic, Submission *PRZCure Berry*)
Haunter (Hypnosis, Mean Look, Nightmare, Night Shade *Mint Berry*)
Tangela (Sleep Powder, Bind, Mega Drain, Sludge Bomb *Bitter Berry*)
Jynx (Lovely Kiss, Mean Look, Ice Punch, Dream Eater *Ice Berry*)
Smeargle (Spore, Spider Web, Nightmare, Super Fang *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Marowak, Mewtwo, Machamp
Lead with Marowak, and let it fall asleep. Assuming you're not bound,
you can switch out, ruining Gloria's plan. Then, use Mewtwo's Psychic on
Haunter, Ice Beam on Tangela, and Thunderbolt on Golduck. Machamp can
also do well with Cross Chop for Smeargle (who can't KO Machamp as long
as Marowak's asleep), Rock Slide on Jynx, and Earthquake on Ninetales.

Vince's team:
Ivysaur (Cut, Reflect, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf *Burnt Berry*)
Charmeleon (Dig, Slash, Counter, Fire Blast *Mint Berry*)
Wartortle (Reflect, Blizzard, Hydro Pump, Mirror Coat *PRZCure Berry*)
Bayleef (Counter, Body Slam, Razor Leaf, Light Screen *Bitter Berry*)
Quilava (Dig, Roar, Reversal, Fire Blast *PSNCure Berry*)
Croconaw (Dig, Slash, Crunch, Hydro Pump *Gold Berry*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Kingdra, Houndoom
Use Zapdos' Thunderbolt on the Water Pokemon, Kingdra's Surf on the Fire
types, and Houndoom's Flamethrower on the Grass Pokemon. Switch when
needed, and you should take the win.

Clair's team:
Charizard (Body Slam, Earthquake, Wing Attack, Flamethrower *King's Rock*)
Nidoking (Body Slam, Earthquake, Double Kick, Shadow Ball *Scope Lens*)
Rhydon (Roar, Body Slam, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Focus Band*)
Gyarados (Ice Beam, Waterfall, Double-Edge, Dragonbreath *Miracle Berry*)
Ampharos (Body Slam, Fire Punch, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Quick Claw*)
Kingdra (Return, Ice Beam, Hydro Pump, Dragonbreath *Bright Powder*)

Recommended: Kingdra, Marowak, Zapdos
Mirror match time! Kingdra's Dragonbreath is the ONLY thing that will
be super-effective on Clair's Kingdra, and she'll be blasting you with it
too. Thankfully, Kingdra w/Leftovers can survive three shots of it (IIRC).
Also, use Surf on Nidoking/Rhydon/Charizard. Marowak can Earthquake
Ampharos out, and Gyarados will be beaten by Zapdos' Thunderbolt.

Elite 4 + Champion:
Elite 4 Will ---> Elite 4 Koga ---> Elite 4 Bruno ---> Elite 4 Karen --->
Champion Lance

Will's team:
Hypno (Psychic, Ice Punch, Submission, Shadow Ball *Scope Lens*)
Chansey (Psychic, Counter, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt *Focus Band*)
Electabuzz (Psychic, Ice Punch, Rolling Kick, Thunderbolt *King's Rock*)
Flareon (Roar, Body Slam, Fire Blast, Shadow Ball *Quick Claw*)
Xatu (Psychic, Giga Drain, Drill Peck, Faint Attack *Bright Powder*)
Mantine (Haze, Ice Beam !CI!, Waterfall, Wing Attack *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Machamp, Zapdos
Houndoom should go first, as you do not want Machamp eating Psychic to
open the match. Crunch out the Psychics. Machamp's Cross Chop will eat
Chansey for lunch, and you can Earthquake Electabuzz and Flareon. Zapdos
should go against Mantine.

Koga's team:
Venomoth (Toxic, Psybeam, Double Team, Baton Pass *Bright Powder*)
Magmar (Toxic, Confuse Ray, Double Team, Flamethrower *Miracle Berry*)
Lapras (Toxic, Confuse Ray, Double Team, Surf *Leftovers*)
Ariados (Toxic, Psybeam, Double Team, Baton Pass *Focus Band*)
Lanturn (Toxic, Confuse Ray, Double Team, Thunderbolt *Quick Claw*)
Stantler (Toxic, Confuse Ray, Double Team, Earthquake *Mysteryberry*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Machamp, Mewtwo
Get as much Poison protection as you can for this. Zapdos' Thunder Wave
will slow them down, plus you can Drill Peck the Bugs, Thunderbolt Lapras,
and use Hidden Power on Lanturn. Machamp's Cross Chop should beat Stantler,
and Earthquake will handle Magmar. Mewtwo's your sweeper if things go
bad.

Bruno's team:
Primeape (Counter, Reversal, Cross Chop, Rock Slide *Focus Band*)
Machamp (Fissure, Cross Chop, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Quick Claw*)
Golem (Fissure, Magnitude, Rock Slide, Submission *Bright Powder*)
Exeggutor (Psychic, Explosion, Giga Drain, Ancientpower *Miracle Berry*)
Granbull (Strength, Shadow Ball, Sludge Bomb, Dynamicpunch *PRZCure Berry*)
Ursaring (Slash, Crunch, Counter, Earthquake *Scope Lens*)

Recommended: Mewtwo, Machamp, Zapdos
Mewtwo's Psychic will beat the Fighters (but pray that Fissure doesn't
connect), and Ice Beam will beat Golem and Exeggutor. Machamp should
handle the Normals, and Zapdos can back up Mewtwo with Drill Peck and
Hidden Power, plus can Thunderbolt the Normal-types for big damage.

Karen's team:
Persian (Swagger, Screech, Headbutt, Shadow Ball *Bright Powder*)
Slowbro (Swagger, Surf, Submission, Thunder Wave *Quick Claw*)
Electrode (Swagger, Headbutt, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *King's Rock*)
Umbreon (Swagger, Screech, Psychic, Faint Attack *Focus Band*)
Murkrow (Swagger, Psych Up, Mean Look, Drill Peck *Scope Lens*)
Misdreavus (Psychic, Mean Look, Pain Split, Perish Song *Mysteryberry*)

Recommended: Machamp, Houndoom, Zapdos
Oh boy... use Machamp's Cross Chop on Persian and Umbreon, and Earthquake
Electrode. Houndoom's Crunch should KO the Perish Trap Misdreavus, and
Zapdos' Thunderbolt will beat Murkrow and Slowbro.

Lance's team:
Arcanine (Hyper Beam, Crunch, Extremespeed, Flamethrower *Miracle Berry*)
Kangaskhan (Hyper Beam, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Submission *Bright Powder*)
Aerodactyl (Hyper Beam, Earthquake, Wing Attack, Ancientpower *King's Rock*)
Dragonite (Hyper Beam, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt, Dragonbreath *Scope Lens*)
Feraligatr (Hyper Beam, Surf, Blizzard, Earthquake *Mystic Water*)
Tyranitar (Hyper Beam, Crunch, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Kingdra, Machamp
See that first move? Oh yeah, it's a pain to deal with, especially as
these are some beefy Attack ratings. Use Zapdos' Thunderbolt on Feraligatr
and Aerodactyl. Kingdra's Surf and Ice Beam attacks will smoke Arcanine
and Dragonite, respectively. Finally, Machamp's Cross Chop should beat
Tyranitar and Kangaskhan.

Ten matches from the end of the game... let's move to the Kanto Gym Leader
Castle.

f) Kanto Gym Leader Castle

As in R1, you've only got to fight 1 trainer in each gym. How the mighty
have fallen... Beat this and only the Rival stands between you and the
Earthquaking Gligar.

Leader Brock's team:
Slowbro (Fissure, Surf, Psychic, Flamethrower !CI! *Bright Powder*)
Rhydon (Fissure, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Double-Edge *Quick Claw*)
Steelix (Fissure, Return, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Scope Lens*)
Shuckle (Wrap, Rollout, Safeguard, Defense Curl *Leftovers*)
Heracross (Counter, Reversal, Megahorn, Earthquake *Focus Band*)
Ursaring (Slash, Rollout, Defense Curl, Focus Energy *Mint Berry*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Kingdra, Machamp
Zapdos' Drill Peck will devestate Heracross, and Thunderbolt should smoke
Slowbro. Kingdra's Surf will beat the Ground/Rock Pokemon, and Machamp's
Cross Chop will make Ursaring bite the dust.

Leader Misty's team:
Nidoqueen (Rain Dance, Surf, Thunder, Earthquake *Scope Lens*)
Wigglytuff (Rain Dance, Thunder, Ice Beam, Double-Edge *Quick Claw*)
Starmie (Rain Dance, Surf, Thunder, Psychic *King's Rock*)
Dragonair (Rain Dance, Surf, Thunder, Ice Beam *Bitter Berry*)
Ampharos (Rain Dance, Thunder, Reflect, Light Screen *Bright Powder*)
Politoed (Rain Dance, Hydro Pump, Ice Beam, Earthquake *Focus Band*)

Recommended: Zapdos, Kingdra, Machamp
Zapdos' Thunderbolt will beat down all of the Water Pokemon. Kingdra's
Surf will be magnified during Rain Dance, so bring it to beat Nidoqueen
around, and for Dragonbreath or Ice Beam on Dragonair. Finally, beat down
Ampharos with Earthquake and Wigglytuff with Cross Chop from Machamp.

Leader Lt. Surge's team:
Raichu (Surf, Reversal, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *Focus Band*)
Victreebel (Body Slam, Razor Leaf, Stun Spore, Sludge Bomb *Miracle Berry*)
Dodrio (Pursuit, Drill Peck, Steel Wing, Tri Attack *Scope Lens*)
Jolteon (Roar, Hidden Power, Thunderbolt, Thunder Wave *King's Rock*)
Quagsire (Surf, Ice Beam !CI!, Earthquake, Ancientpower *Bright Powder*)
Porygon2 (Psychic, Blizzard, Tri Attack, Conversion2 *Quick Claw*)

Recommended: Marowak, Machamp, Zapdos
Lead with Marowak and whack all of the Electrics with Earthquake. By my
estimation, 'Wak can only take one Surf from Raichu, so hope the Focus Band
doesn't kick in or you're in trouble. Zapdos should Hidden Power Quagsire,
Drill Peck Victreebel, and Thunderbolt Dodrio. Machamp can Cross Chop
Porygon2 and provide backup Earthquakes if Marowak goes down.

Leader Erika's team:
Ninetales (Hypnosis, Body Slam, Iron Tail, Flamethrower *Bright Powder*)
Exeggutor (Psychic, Giga Drain, Stun Spore, Sleep Powder *Focus Band*)
Marowak (Rest, Snore, Belly Drum, Bonemerang *Thick Club*)
Bellossom (Return, Razor Leaf, Stun Spore, Sleep Powder *Quick Claw*)
Mantine (Rest, Surf, Ice Beam !CI!, Sleep Talk *Mint Berry*)
Blissey (Sing, Psychic, Reflect, Light Screen *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Machamp, Zapdos
Houndoom's Flamethrower will burn up all of the Grass-typed opposition.
Machamp's Earthquake will Ground out a win against Ninetales, and Cross
Chop should handle Blissey. Zapdos' Hidden Power should get Marowak in two
hits, and Thunderbolt will down Blissey.

Leader Janine's team:
Muk (Toxic, Swagger, Mean look, Fire Punch *Focus Band*)
Vaporeon (Surf, Ice Beam, Baton Pass !CI!, Double Team *Bright Powder*)
Meganium (Toxic, Attract, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf *Quick Claw*)
Crobat (Toxic, Bite, Mean Look, Confuse Ray *King's Rock*)
Girafarig (Crunch, Psychic, Baton Pass, Double Team *Miracle Berry*)
Forretress (Spikes, Swagger, Sandstorm, Double-Edge *Scope Lens*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Mewtwo, Marowak
Houndoom should lead off, and Crunch out Girafarig while Flamethrowering
Forretress and Meganium. Mewtwo can take the other three with Psychic
and Thunderbolt. Marowak can sweep if needed.

Leader Sabrina's team:
Sandslash (Slash, Earthquake, Rock Slide, Submission *Bright Powder*)
Alakazam (Psychic, Fire Punch, Future Sight, Thunderpunch *King's Rock*)
Hitmonlee (Foresight, Mega Kick, Mind Reader, Dynamicpunch *Scope Lens*)
Typhlosion (Reversal, Earthquake, Flamethrower, Thunderpunch *Focus Band*)
Slowking (Surf, Psychic, Earthquake, Future Sight *Quick Claw*)
Scizor (Slash, Reversal, Metal Claw, Light Screen *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Houndoom, Mewtwo, Kingdra
Split the duties here. Houndoom's Crunch should beat Alakazam, and he can
Flamethrower Scizor. Mewtwo's Psychic will beat Hitmonlee, and Ice Beam
will beat down Hitmonlee. Also, Thunderbolt should handle Slowking. Finally,
Typhlosion will go down to Kingdra's Surf.

Leader Blaine's team:
Clefable (Sunny Day, Moonlight, Solarbeam, Fire Blast *Focus Band*)
Vileplume (Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Synthesis, Sludge Bomb *Quick Claw*)
Arcanine (Sunny Day, Roar, Fire Blast, Extremespeed *King's Rock*)
Chansey (Sunny Day, Counter, Solarbeam, Fire Blast *Miracle Berry*)
Mr. Mime (Sunny Day, Psychic, Solarbeam, Fire Blast *Scope Lens*)
Moltres (Sunny Day, Fire Blast, Steel Wing, Wing Attack *Bright Powder*)

Recommended: Marowak, Houndoom, Machamp
4 more... Marowak's Earthquake and Rock Slide will basically kill Arcanine
and Moltres. If Vileplume or Mr. Mime enters, Houndoom's Flamethrower and
Crunch should beat them both down. Machamp takes the Normal-types.

Leader Blue's team:
Gengar (Psychic, Ice Punch, Fire Punch, Thunderbolt *King's Rock*)
Scyther (Agility, Baton Pass, Wing Attack, Swords Dance *Bright Powder*)
Pilowswine (Roar, Ice Beam, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Quick Claw*)
Houndoom (Crunch, Reversal, Iron Tail, Flamethrower *Focus Band*)
Kingdra (Surf, Flail, Ice Beam !CI!, Dragonbreath *Scope Lens*)
Miltank (Reversal, Body Slam, Earthquake, Shadow Ball *Miracle Berry*)

Recommended: Machamp, Kingdra, Mewtwo
For the final gym, Machamp's Earthquake will beat Gengar, Rock Slide should
smash Scyther, and Cross Chop should beat Pilowswine and Miltank. Kingdra's
Surf will beat Houndoom, and Dragonbreath will beat Kingdra. Mewtwo can
sweep everything.

Pokemon Trainer Red's team:
Snorlax (Hidden Power, Body Slam, Earthquake, Rock Slide *Quick Claw*)
Dragonite (Hidden Power, Fly, Body Slam, Thunder Wave *Miracle Berry*)
Espeon (Hidden Power, Bite, Psychic, Reflect *King's Rock*)
Raikou (Hidden Power, Bite, Iron Tail, Thunderbolt !CI! *Focus Band*)
Entei (Hidden Power, Bite, Iron Tail, Fire Blast *Scope Lens*)
Suicune (Hidden Power, Bite, Surf, Ice Beam !CI! *Bright Powder*)

Recommended: Machamp, Houndoom, Kingdra
Machamp's Cross Chop will beat Snorlax down, and you can use Earthquake on
Raikou and Entei. Houndoom's SunnyBeam should handle Suicune quite nicely,
and Crunch should take care of Espeon. Finish Dragonite with Kingdra.

That's it... all of Round 2 should be finished. Now, take a deep breath
and prepare to face the Rival.

g) Rival

Unlike R1, this isn't a straight Tyranitar sweep: Max stats and Mewtwo's
Submission ensure that.

Here's my team for the Rival:
Marowak (Gym Leader Castle set)
Snorlax (Rest, Curse, Return, Shadow Ball *Mint Berry*)
Mewtwo (Psychic, Recover, Shadow Ball, Thunderbolt *Spell Tag*)
Umbreon (Toxic, Mean Look, Moonlight, Confuse Ray *Leftovers*)
Scizor (Rest, Agility, Baton Pass, Swords Dance *Miracle Berry*)
Tyranitar (Roar, Crunch, Earthquake, Ancientpower *Mysteryberry*)

The Rival's three Pokemon:
Mewtwo (Psychic, Recover, Submission, Thunderbolt *King's Rock*)
Lugia (Psychic, Aeroblast, Safeguard, Earthquake *Leftovers*)
Ho-oh (Thunder, Earthquake, Giga Drain, Sacred Fire *Quick Claw*)

To beat the team, lead with Mewtwo and stall until Ho-oh shows up. Switch
to Marowak or Tyranitar (T-Tar preferred), then use Rock attacks to beat
Ho-oh. Next, switch to Scizor and use these attacks in sequence:

-Agility
-Swords Dance
-Agility
-Baton Pass to Marowak.

If your HP drops into the red, use Rest and get it back. You set the
NickWak up perfectly. Now, Rock Slide Lugia and Hidden Power Mewtwo to take
the win.

The other roles of the Pokemon:
-Umbreon: ToxicLook can create a wonderful stall, and Moonlight + Leftovers
should keep Umbreon alive long enough for Toxic to do its stuff.
-The Snorlax is a Curselax, which is incredibly hard to beat once set up.
-If you want, do the BP sequence to Snorlax with Scizor.
-Tyranitar could sweep, but if you paralyze Mewtwo first. On average,
Submission does about 60% damage to Tyranitar.

Anyway, that's the game. Way to go! Now, let's go lick our friends, shall
we?

7) Pokedex

Complete with Crystal influences (thank you, White Cat!), this is a
full move list for every Pokemon in the game. The original Pokedex is
copy/pasted from my GS guide (self-plagarism?).

The Move Tutor is a person in Crystal (Goldenrod Game Corner) who will
teach Pokemon Thunderbolt, Ice Beam, and Flamethrower. If the Pokemon can
learn any of them, it's listed. Also, I included a quick description and
the best moveset for the Pokemon.

152-153-154: Chikorita/Bayleef/Meganium (Grass)

Description: Meganium is probably the best of the three GSC starters. He's
got good stats, and can learn some interesting moves. He's also the only
Grass type I'd use SunnyBeam on, simply because of Ancientpower being one
of his bred moves. Also makes a good psuedo-passer, seeing as it can learn
Reflect, Light Screen AND Safeguard. A decent choice.

Natural Moves:
Tackle (start)
Growl (start)
Razor Leaf (L8 Chikorita)
Reflect (L12 Chikorita)
Poison Powder (L15 Chikorita)
Synthesis (L22 Chikorita, L23 Bayleef)
Body Slam (L29 Chikorita, L31 Bayleef)
Light Screen (L36 Chikorita, L39 Bayleef, L41 Meganium)
Safeguard (L43 Chikorita, L47 Bayleef, L51 Meganium)

Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Synthesis, Ancientpower *Mysteryberry*
Razor Leaf, Light Screen, Counter, Earthquake *Leftovers*

155-156-157: Cyndaquil/Quilava/Typhlosion (Fire)

Description: Although it has low move compatibility, the Cyndaquil family
are decent Fire Pokemon. The attack stats are excellent (Special Attack
stands out), but Typhlosion is a little weak defensively. Play it
carefully, and switch if you see a pure-Ground Pokemon.

Natural Moves:
Tackle (start)
Growl (start)
Smokescreen (L6 Cyndaquil)
Ember (L12 Cyndaquil)
Quick Attack (L19 Cyndaquil, L21 Quilava)

Flamethrower/Fire Blast, Thunderpunch, Endure, Reversal *Focus Band*

158-159-160: Totodile/Croconaw/Feraligatr (Water)

Description: Of the three starters, the Totodile family is probably the
least-used. Physical attacks are this family's forte (Slash/Earthquake/
Return, Screech helping quite a bit), while Special Attacks are a problem.
Play physical with Feraligatr for best results, and may your Ancientpower
always boost.

Natural Moves:
Scratch (start)
Leer (start)
Rage (L7 Totodile)
Water Gun (L13 Totodile)
Bite (L20 Totodile, L21 Croconaw)

256 Special Attack (69), 264 Special Defense (62)

Recommended Movesets:
Surf, Screech, Earthquake, Ancientpower *Mysteryberry*
Curse, Rock Slide, Earthquake, Rest *Mint Berry*

16-17-18: Pidgey/Pidgeotto/Pidgeot (Normal/Flying)

Description: The weak sisters of the Flying Pokemon (okay, Noctowl sucks
worse, but hey...), Pidgeot's got good Speed going for it. The problem
is, its natural movelist isn't the best, and its TM compatibility isn't
the greatest either. But at least Wing Attack is 60 power, so it can
do SOME Flying damage.

Natural Moves:
Tackle (start)
Sand-Attack (L5 Pidgey)
Gust (L9 Pidgey)
Quick Attack (L15 Pidgey)
Whirwind (L23 Pidgeotto)
Wing Attack (L29 Pidgey, L33 Pidgeotto)

21-22: Spearow/Fearow (Normal/Flying)

Description: A little stronger than Pidgeot, but still short of the top
of the Flying heap. However, it does learn the best Flying move available
to non-Legends (Drill Peck), and it has a decent Attack rating. Still,
anything this Pokemon can do, Dodrio does it better.

163-164: Hoothoot/Noctowl (Normal/Flying)

19-20: Rattata/Raticate (Normal)

Description: He's got one of the better support moves in the game in
Super Fang (1/2 health gone? I'll take that). Plus, Raticate has an
okay Attack and pretty good TM compatibility. Super Fang is the
centerpiece, so build from that.

161-162: Sentret/Furret (Normal)

Description: The prototypical Normal type; high HP and bad Special Attack.
It learns good moves by TM, and picks up the powerful Double-Edge by
breeding. Make it a tank, and you'll do well.

172-25-26: Pichu/Pikachu/Raichu (Electric)

Description: Every new player's favorite, the rat is actually not half
bad. Those of us who picked up Surfing Pikachus from the original Stadium
are in for a treat, as he's one of the few Pokemon to use Rain Dance to
its greatest effect. Pichu-made Raichus are okay, but if you want the
Surfer, you can't get Sweet Kiss, a good confusion move. *sigh*

Natural Moves:
Thundershock (start)

10-11-12: Caterpie/Metapod/Butterfree (Bug, Bug, Bug/Flying)

Description: Not good at all. It's got bad stats, and a combo of types
with a very common 4x weakness. Reflect helps in that regard, but you'll
still go down to Tyranitar's Rock Slide. Use this guy for sneaky strikes.

Natural Moves:
Tackle (start)

13-14-15: Weedle/Kakuna/Beedrill (Bug/Poison)

Description: Beedrill's moves are excellent (including the exclusive-except-
for-Smeargle Twineedle), but it's got the Poison type, which is akin to a
death sentence in this game. If it could set up (which doesn't happen
often), look out.

Natural Moves:
Poison Sting (start)
String Shot (start)
Harden (start if Kakuna caught wild, level 7 if evolved to Kakuna)

165-166: Ledyba/Ledian (Bug/Flying)

Description: This Pokemon can't attack at all. Plain and simple. Also,
it doesn't learn anything to Baton Pass that can't be done with a less
vulnerable type. About the only reason to raise one is to get a Baton Pass
Ledian and start breeding Bugs.

Natural Moves:
Tackle (start)
Supersonic (L8 Ledyba)

74-75-76: Geodude/Graveler/Golem (Rock/Ground)

41-42-169: Zubat/Golbat/Crobat (Poison/Flying)

Description: Haze is more common in the GSC universe, so the Golbat family

174-39-40: Igglybuff/Jigglypuff/Wigglytuff (Normal)

Description: Snorlax Lite. It's got the HP, but doesn't have the stats to

27-28: Sandshrew/Sandslash (Ground)

the Thick Club for Marowak. He's got good physical stats, but has Speed

23-24: Ekans/Arbok (Poison)

Description: Actually, Arbok ain't that bad. Glare is a nice move, even
though it isn't exclusive anymore *kicks Dunsparce*. Also, Poison actually
has a decently powered move, Sludge Bomb, that Arbok can learn. Add
in Swagger and Earthquake, and what can I say?

179-180-181: Mareep/Flaaffy/Ampharos (Electric)

Description: Mmm... beefy Special Attack. However, Ampharos doesn't have
the traditional appeal of Electric types (Speed), so it's rather underused.
Uses Electric moves very well, and capable of great things if given a good
Hidden Power.

Natural Moves:

194-195: Wooper/Quagsire (Water/Ground)

Description: In terms of annoyance and painful dual-typing, Quaggy's
second only to Kingdra. Doesn't have the greatest Attacking stats in the
world, but his typing neutralizes a lot of those type's weaknesses. If you
even SUSPECT they've got SunnyBeam or another powerful Grass move,
switch it.

92-93-94: Gastly/Haunter/Gengar (Ghost/Poison)

Description: Some people like Gengar as a Perish Trapper, but he can
do so much more. He makes a nice Hazer (decent speed to pull it off), can
almost be elemental, and has a huge Special Attack score. Don't worry
about using Ghost moves on Gengar, tho... the physical attack blows.

Natural Moves:
Hypnosis (start)
Lick (start)

95-208: Onix/Steelix (Rock/Ground, Steel/Ground)

Description: I could probably take Steelix over 200m, which is rather sad.
(Translation: Don't look for Speed.) Still, Steelix has a good Attack,
and no 4x weaknesses (unlike Onix). Don't be afraid to Curse with Steelix,
as it has no Speed to lose, and could always use an Attack upper.

69-70-71: Bellsprout/Weepinbell/Victreebel (Grass/Poison)

Description: Victreebel was shafted in this game. His best feature in the
originals (Razor Leaf) isn't a guaranteed critical hit anymore, it's still
part-Poison, and doesn't have the best defensive stats. Go for criticals
with this Pokemon. Yeah... stupid Bellsprout.

187-188-189: Hoppip/Skiploom/Jumpluff (Grass/Flying)

Description: A Grass Pokemon with Speed? What's wrong with this picture?
Its Speed makes up for the fact that it has little-to-no Attacking power,
even with its type-bonus moves. Also damned by the fact that it starts
with Splash.

Natural Moves:
Splash (start)

46-47: Paras/Parasect (Bug/Grass)

Description: In terms of types, Parasect was the weakest Pokemon in the
originals, with THREE 4x weaknesses. One of those is a neutrality now
(Poison, whoop de doo), but still... play this guy carefully. Don't try
for SunnyBeam with Parasect, as it will be a fatal mistake.

60-61-62/186: Poliwag/Poliwhirl/Poliwrath/Politoed (Water, Water, Water/
Fighting, Water)

Description: Poliwrath is the El Cheapo of the bunch, as it is the

129-130: Magikarp/Gyarados (Water, Water/Flying)

Description: Shafted. Utterly shafted. Gyarados really has to be a physical
attacker, as its Special Attack has dropped 80 points (!) to 218 since
RBY. Those who might be tempted to use Rain Dance and help Surf take note:

63-64-65: Abra/Kadabra/Alakazam (Psychic)

Description: Awesome Special Attack, great Speed, what else could I ask?
Well, how about some defenses... the Special split ruined Alakazam. Barrier

Thunder Wave, his 3rd best move... if they expand the maximum number of
moves, Alakazam will be lethal.

204-205: Pineco/Forretress (Bug, Bug/Steel)

29-30-31: NidoranF/Nidorina/Nidoqueen (Poison, Poison, Poison/Ground)

202: Wobbuffet (Psychic)

Description: Ugh... Wobb. Basic strategy with the monster is to Destiny
Bond on the switch, then hope the attack you're taking matches the move
you used. Note: Wobb's attacks factor in types, so if a Ghost-type used
a physical attack and you went for Counter, it wouldn't hit.

48-49: Venonat/Venomoth (Bug/Poison)

Description: Beedrill's type with a bad Attack stat. Psychic is your
main weapon. What really ticks me off is that Venomoth can Baton Pass,
but can only pass Curse or Double Team. Geez...

123-212: Scyther/Scizor (Bug/Flying, Bug/Steel)

Description: Has peaked in popularity recently, after people realized that
Marowak needed Speed and a Swords Dance provided to it somehow in order
to sweep. Scizor has excellent Attack in its own right, so it can do
something other than Pass stuff on. As with the other Steel Bug
(Forretress), avoid Fire.

127: Pinsir (Bug)

Description: Still learns no Bug moves unless you play around with Hidden
Power (or Shark it, like some people do...), but has a really high Attack
and learns plenty of moves to take advantage of it.

Natural Moves:

214: Heracross (Bug/Fighting)

Description: Holder of the most powerful Bug move in the game (Megahorn),
Heracross seems like the next big Psy killer. One problem: It's part
Fighting. Two Psychics kill it. Try Cursing with it, as one Curse will give
it enough Defense to survive a Drill Peck from Zapdos. (Something I learned
the hard way... damn you, Rain Dance!)

Natural Moves:

109-110: Koffing/Weezing (Poison)

good attacking stats and can actually HIT a Steel Pokemon (Fire Blast).
Also, makes a good Hazer. Enjoy.

88-89: Grimer/Muk (Poison)

Description: You'd think something with 400+ HP and a near-300 Special
Defense would be more popular. However, Muk gets knocked down because
it's Poison and doesn't learn any decent Steel-countering moves. I'd
probably take Muk against Alakazam... Sludge Bomb vs. Psychic. Who'd
win?

81-82: Magnemite/Magneton (Electric/Steel)

Description: The first Pokemon in either series that resits both Ice and
Electric. Just one problem; It's got a huge weakness to Ground. Also, it's
got very little Speed, so it's imperative that you Thunder Wave the lead.
Not highly recommended.

100-101: Voltorb/Electrode (Electric)

Description: Still as fast as ever, but still with the bad Attack. However,
it's a great psuedo-passer, and he can get off speedy Thunder Waves when

Description: CRACKMONKEY!!! Heh... Aipom's a decent BPer, with Curse and

37-38: Vulpix/Ninetales (Fire)

Description: This was a very popular Pokemon in RBY, because it had a
similar Special rating and more Speed than Arcanine, plus Confuse Ray.
Now, its Special Attack has gone down ~40 points, ruining it even with
Sunny Day. Still decent, but there are better ones out there.

58-59: Growlithe/Arcanine (Fire)

183-184: Marill/Azumarill (Water)

50-51: Diglett/Dugtrio (Ground)

Description: Lightning quick, faster than a speeding Alakazam. (Well,
they're tied, but work with me.) Also gets type bonus on the incredibly
powerful Earthquake. The problem is, Duggy's all Speed, with no other
really good stat. Nice for a suprise, but Dugtrio is NOT a sweeper.

56-57: Mankey/Primeape (Fighting)

Description: Very good Fighting Pokemon. It's got the always-powerful Cross
Chop, which will kill Tyranitar in one hit. Also, you can breed it for
Rock Slide (try breeding your Primeape with a Rock Slide Dugtrio). Throw
in the classic Swagger/Psych Up combo, and there could be a rout.

52-53: Meowth/Persian (Normal)

Description: <sic> Do you liek teh kitties?!?!11?? </sic> Persian was no
pussycat in RBY, not with Slash criticalling left, right, and center.
However, Slash has been reduced to a shadow of its former self, so I opted
for Return and its 102 max power.

54-55: Psyduck/Golduck (Water)

Evaluation: The should-be-a-Psychic-but-isn't Golduck has picked up a nice
Special Attack boost from the originals. However, don't think that you'll
finally be able to get Amnesia + Psychic on a Golduck... it's impossible.

66-67-68: Machop/Machoke/Machamp (Fighting)

Description: Evil. The three main attacks Machamp uses (you've seen them
on all the teams I made for the cups) combine for _12_ type advantages. One
of my greatest joys was making a team that didn't have anyone with a
Machamp weakness.

Natural Moves:

236-106: Tyrogue/Hitmonlee (Fighting)

Description: Although Hitmonlee doesn't have the sweep potential that
a Machamp has, it's the better pure Fighter. Hi Jump Kick is more accurate
and just a little less damaging than Cross Chop, and 'Lee has great
physical strength. Also, it defends Special attacks incredibly well when
compared to his RBY counterpart.

Natural Moves:
Tackle (Tyrogue starts with this)
Double Kick (Hitmonlee starts with this)
Meditate (L6 Hitmonlee)

236-107: Tyrogue/Hitmonchan (Fighting)

Description: Hitmonchan learns all three elemental punches (at the same
time, no less!), but has no Special Attack to use them with. There are
two schools of thought concerning Hitmonchan: One suggests using the
same moveset Hitmonlee uses, the other suggests a Curse/Mach Punch combo.
Either works.

Comet Punch (Hitmonchan starts with this)
Agility (L7 Hitmonchan)

Recommended Movesets:
See Hitmonlee

236-237: Tyrogue/Hitmontop (Fighting)

Description: Of the three Hitmons, Hitmontop is certainly the most
balanced. Even though the Special Attack is still crappy, the rest of the
stats are above average. Either the Hitmonlee set or the Curse/Mach Punch
combo can be put to great use.

Natural Moves:
Tackle (Tyrogue starts with this)
Rolling Kick (Hitmontop starts with this)
Focus Energy (L7 Hitmontop)

Recommended Movesets: See Hitmonchan

203: Girafarig (Normal/Psychic)

Description: The GSC palindrome (RBY has Eevee), it's got an interesting
type combination which gives Fighting resistance and Ghost immunity. A
common tactic for new players is to give Girafarig Curse, Agility,
Amnesia, and Baton Pass, then pass the baton to something and expect it to
sweep. That will not happen in most cases, because Girafarig's a little
brittle for a BPer.

Natural Moves:
Tackle (start)
Growl (start)
Confusion (L7 Girafarig)
Stomp (L13 Girafarig)
Agility (L20 Girafarig)
Baton Pass (L30 Girafarig)

Recommended Movesets:
Agility, Baton Pass, Earthquake, Crunch *Leftovers*
Psychic, Return, Double Team, Baton Pass *Leftovers*

128: Tauros (Normal)

Description: RBY players will be displeased when they learn that Tauros'
Special Attack went down 60 points in the GSC universe. Plus, Blizzard
sucks anyway, so... no more Blizzard. If you use the recommended set
against another person, wear plenty of protection, as they'll probably
want to kill you after it hits four or five times... o_O...

240-126: Magby/Magmar (Fire)

Description: I fell in love with Magmar the day I found out it could learn
Thunderpunch. Then I found out Typhlosion could learn it and had a better
Special Attack, so... yes, I am a Fire Pokemon pimp. Magmar's Special
Attack and ability to Barrier are hard to turn down, though.

238-124: Smoochum/Jynx (Ice/Psychic)

Description: Don't mess with the "business lady". She'll lock you in,
kiss you down, then suck you dry. She holds the best Dream Eater in the
game (great Special Attack AND type bonus, plus a good Sleep move and
Speed). Very powerful if set up, but defenses are a problem.

239-125: Elekid/Electabuzz (Electric)

Description: Another Pokemon I fell in love with early, because of Ice
Punch and Barrier (my thinking: Could we have a Ground-beating Electric
that doesn't need Stadium1 or mucking around with Hidden Power?) Well,
I can tell you that the answer is "Maybe". One of the better Electrics.

Description: If this sucker had more HP, it'd be up near Alakazam on the
Psychic depth chart. Instead, it's fighting with Hypno. It's got good
Special Attack and very high Special Defense, in addition to good Speed
and a type that lends itself to power.

Natural Moves:

235: Smeargle (Normal)

Description: Although Smeargle can legally learn almost every move in the
game, it's got NO ATTACK POWER. Use Smeargle as a support Pokemon, or to
set up BP chains. (To get BP, use Mystery Gift with someone who's only
packing one Pokemon and that Pokemon knows Baton Pass only. Ledian will
work well for that. Then, go to the Trainer House in Viridian and battle.
Smeargle can Sketch BP from there. When you take it into Stadium, ignore
the fact that it will be marked as an illegal move.)

Natural Moves:
Sketch (start)
Sketch (L11 Smeargle, and every 10 levels after that)

83: Farfetch'd (Normal/Flying)

Description: This particular Pokemon can get a lot of critical hits. That's
a good thing, as he needs them. Its stats are below average in all
categories. It can pick up Baton Pass if you beat R1 of this game, which
can help if you want to set up Marowak, but Scizor does it better.

177-178: Natu/Xatu (Psychic/Flying)

Description: As a Psychic/Flying, Lugia's got it beat in all catergories.
However, it's actually pretty good. It's got a great moveset (though that
requires plenty of breeding), and pretty good Speed and Special Attack.

Natural Moves:

211: Qwilfish (Water/Poison)

Description: Those of us who get Crystal will be pleased to discover that
Qwilfish can use Spikes. However, Qwilfish doesn't have the stats to do
much after that, and it can't explode (an advantage other Spike-layers
have). Tentacruel's the best Water/Poison in the game, so go with it.

Natural Moves:
Spikes (Crystal: Start)
Tackle (start)
Poison Sting (start)
Harden (L10 Qwilfish)
Minimize (L10 Qwilfish)
Water Gun (L19 Qwilfish)

72-73: Tentacool/Tentacruel (Water/Poison)

Descrption: A flippin' tank. 338 Special Defense allows it to Mirror Coat
back any nasty Psychics or Thunderbolts the enemy throws at you. Add
in Barrier, and they've got to hit you with Special moves, opening
the door for some Coating. Very nice Pokemon overall.

98-99: Krabby/Kingler (Water)

Description: Blah. Kingler has a huge physical attack rating, but lacks
the balance needed to use them effectively. Hidden Power Ground will
really help against Electrics, but switch against Grass. Good for those
sneaky players, but avoid for serious teams.

213: Shuckle (Bug/Rock)

limited. Mainly because his Attack reeks... Often used as an addition
to STS teams due to Rock typing and Wrap move.

120-121: Staryu/Starmie (Water/Psychic)

Description: Everybody's favorite Water type, Starmie is the best Parafuse
Pokemon in the game. The moves that Parafuse Starmie uses (Thunder Wave
and Confuse Ray) are extremely accurate, and you can Surf out the Ground
Pokemon that are immune to Electric. Plus, it's very quick.

90-91: Shellder/Cloyster (Water, Water/Ice)

Description: Originally, Cloyster was a tank because of its good Special
Defense and game-leading Defense. Well, its Special Defense has been shot
to hell, and its Defense is no longer #1. However, people planning to get
Crystal take note... Cloyster picks up Spikes in that game.

222: Corsola (Water/Rock)

Description: Move supplier to the world (you would not believe how many
Pokemon get Mirror Coat or Ancientpower, all thanks to this guy), which
is the extent of its usefulness. If AP boosts, you're in business, but
the Grass Pokemon would probably shred Corsola before it happens.

223-224: Remoraid/Octillery (Water)

Description: Octillery rules. Don't tell me otherwise, 'cause he'll kick
your butt. Great Attack stats make his Surf/Ice Beam/Return a potent
combination, and the only reason I'm getting Crystal is to put Flamethrower
on it and make the Dontillery.

170-171: Chinchou/Lanturn (Water/Electric)

Description: Water/Electric? What the heck? Feh... Lanturn's one of the
best Rain Dance Pokemon, plus it learns Thunder Wave and Confuse Ray.
(The only reason I said Starmie is the best Parafuser is 'cause he's
faster). Plus, 450+ HP is always nice.

86-87: Seel/Dewgong (Water, Water/Ice)

Description: Not good at all. Dewgong has serious problems with its Attack

on it is not great.

108: Lickitung (Normal)

Description: Fairly decent. Has nice HP and Defenses, but has attack

114: Tangela (Grass)

Description: When GS was released, Tangela inherited a gold mine... it got
the shaft. </bad joke> Its Special Defense dropped over 100 points, and
when you have two Special weaknesses that are very popular, it's a recipe
for disaster. Amnesia helps in that regard.

133-134: Eevee/Vaporeon (Normal, Water)

Description: Excellent Water-type. Huge HP score, plus powerful Special
moves running off its 318 Special Attack make Vap hard to beat. And guess
what... all Eeveelutions can Baton Pass in the Crystal universe, making
Vap a great Substitute/BP Pokemon. (You'll be passing a Sub that has 230

133-135: Eevee/Jolteon (Normal, Electric)

Description: Very popular lead Pokemon due to high Special Attack, Thunder
Wave, and the fact that it's faster than Death Starmies. Doesn't take
physical hits very well, so watch out against Ground-types. For some
reason, Substitute/Attract Jolteons have been in vogue lately... *shrugs*

133-136: Eevee/Flareon (Normal, Fire)

Description: Flareon is a attacking MACHINE. 350+ Attack and STAB Fire
moves running off a near-300 Spec. Attack make Flareon potent. However,
it does need some physical protection, and some Speed. Try to avoid

133-196: Eevee/Espeon (Normal, Psychic)

Description: I'm not sure which is the better Psychic, Alakazam or Espeon.
I do know that Espeon can take 'Kazam one-on-one with Bite, thanks to a
beefy Special Attack. Does not deal with physical attacks well, so be
careful. Espeon's the only Pokemon to learn Morning Sun... nice.

133-197: Eevee/Umbreon (Normal, Dark)

Description: Oh baby... Umbreon can't attack normally, but when you've got
near-400 HP and 300+ Defense/Special Defense, it's irrelevant. Umbry can
also Mean Look someone and then Baton Pass to the appropriate victim.

116-117-230: Horsea/Seadra/Kingdra (Water, Water, Water/Dragon)

Description: I'm thinking of adding a Kingdra to my team simply because
I don't usually carry a Dragon move on my team and this is such a hard
Pokemon to take down. One weakness (and it's a rare one), gives Kingdra
a 9 on my annoyance scale. Oh, and it's a great Special attacker.

207: Gligar (Ground/Flying)

Description: If you get the EQ Gligar (good luck getting past R2), try
raising it up. It also comes with a nice STAB move (Wing Attack) and can
really harass Electrics. "Heh... it's a flyer. I'll just bring out Jolteon.
Thunderbolt didn't work? WTF... Earthquake! Oh ****! You ****er!" Just
hope that the Jolty doesn't have HP Ice... Ice moves tear Gligar a new one
in an instant.

225: Deliberd (Ice/Flying)

Description: I once got a Delibird in Challenge Cup... After two rounds,
I realized one thing: It sucks. Delibird's only asset is its decent Speed,
the rest of the stats are below-average. Among Ice/Flyers, I'll take
Articuno any day.

220-221: Swinub/Pilowswine (Ice/Ground)

216-217: Teddiursa/Ursaring (Normal)

Description: The big grizzly has great attacking abilities. Also, pure-
Normal is a great type with only one weakness (Fighting). It doesn't
have the best speed, so you might want to make it into a Cursaring.

231-232: Phanpy/Donphan (Ground)

Description: Pretty average. Donphan is a prototypical Ground type, with
good Attack abilities but lacking in Special abilities. Example: Its
Attack is 120 points higher than its Special Attack. An AP boost would
cause most Pokemon serious trouble.

226: Mantine (Water/Flying)

Description: Good thing Mantine's Special Defense is sky-high: It's got
a massive Electric weakness and bad Speed. Mantine can't really attack
well unless you go for power and STAB. If you even think they've got
an Electric, switch or (probably) die.

227: Skarmory (Steel/Flying)

Description: Capable of messing up more movesets than anyone in the game.
It works well with Marowak, as Skarmory's weaknesses are easily taken
out by Earthquake. Should be able to turn back physical attacks with
a 378 Defense and Steel-typing... extremely nice.

84-85: Doduo/Dodrio (Normal/Flying)

Description: Dodrio owns. Has the highest attack of any Flying type not
named Dragonite, and has excellent speed. Only complaint is that it's
rather weak defensively, so hit-and-run with it. Also use it when you
see a long BP chain... Dodrio learns Haze.

77-78: Ponyta/Rapidash (Fire)

Description: I would've ranked Rapidash 6th out of 7 Fire types in the
original, as it didn't learn Flamethrower. (Moltres was 7th, as it was
also part-Flying.) Rapidash users will be able to add Flamethrower in
Crystal, but its only other selling points are high Speed and a decent
Attack.

Natural Moves:

104-105: Cubone/Marowak (Ground)

Description: The greatest thing to happen to Marowak was GS. Not only does
it now have an item that DOUBLES his Attack, it can finally learn Rock
Slide! (The RBY Marowaks weren't that lucky.) With the Recommended Movesets,
(base 70 on the HP), a Swords Dance and two Agilities, Marowak can OHKO all
but twenty-two final-form Pokemon. That is simply frightening.

-Throw Marowak two Agilities and a Swords Dance with Scizor, then turn out
the lights. Substitute to prevent Haze from messing it all up, then attack
appropriately. Evil.
Earthquake, Rock Slide, Sunny Day, Fire Blast *Thick Club*

115: Kangaskhan (Normal)

Description: Aw, crikey! The Kangaskhan is a voracious Normal type with
great physical strength. It's gotta protect the young from its natural
enemy, the Snorlax. So, it Curses a lot, then Roars the big lugs away!
Let's get a closer look... oh, it bit me arm off! </Crocodile Hunter

Recommended Movesets:
Curse, Rest, Roar, Double-Edge *Mint Berry*
Body Slam, Dizzy Punch, Earthquake, Rest *Mint Berry* <--- Breaks the two
STAB moves rule, but it's a Parafuse set.

111-112: Rhyhorn/Rhydon (Ground/Rock)

Description: If you're fighting a Rhydon, the last thing you should
do is switch. That gives Rhydon time to Sub up, then unleash 358 Attack
+ STAB Earthquakes or Rock Slides. It's very hard to exploit Rhydon's
weaknesses, as he'll waste you given half a chance.

Natural Moves:
Horn Attack (start)
Tail Whip (start)

-An old RBY standard made better with an item.
Earthquake, Rock Slide, Curse, Body Slam *Leftovers*

198: Murkrow (Dark/Flying)

Description: If the movelists were 5 moves instead of 4, I'd have a Murkrow
on my team. It's got a decent attack and learns powerful moves, but could
use an attack boost. It's a nice way to eliminate those who boost their
attack (Snorlax/Kangaskhan/Skarmory), but is only useful in those
situations.

Natural Moves:
Peck (start)
Pursuit (L11 Murkrow)
Haze (L16 Murkrow)
Night Shade (L26 Murkrow)
Faint Attack (L31 Murkrow)

228-229: Houndour/Houndoom (Dark/Fire)

Description: The first Dark Pokemon players fell in love with. And for good
reason: Houndoom is quick and learns very powerful Fire and Dark moves.
Also, it's one of what I call the "Solarbeam Trio"- the three Fire Pokemon
that use Solarbeam. Give it Sunny Day, and you'll be able to lick most
Ground/Rock Pokemon.

Natural Moves:
Leer (start)
Ember (start)
Roar (L7 Houndour)
Smog (L13 Houndour)
Bite (L20 Houndour)
Faint Attack (L27 Houndour, L30 Houndoom)

318 Special Attack (T13), 258 Special Defense (T63)

Recommended Movesets:
Sunny Day, Solarbeam, Crunch, Flamethrower *Miracle Berry*
Flamethrower, Pursuit, Counter, Curse *Leftovers* <--- Pursuit power is
doubled on the switch, so you can nail the Psychic instead of Machamp with
an 80 power Dark. Curse + Counter for Champs.

218-219: Slugma/Magcargo (Fire, Fire/Rock)

Description: Bleh. Magcargo has two VERY common 4x weaknesses (Water and
Ground), which cause plenty of problems. It makes a good staller, but
if he gets CHed once, it's lights out. Not recommended.

Natural Moves:
Smog (start)
Ember (L8 Slugma)
Rock Throw (L15 Slugma)
Harden (L22 Slugma)
Amnesia (L29 Slugma)

Recommended Movesets:
Flamethrower, Acid Armor, Amnesia, Rest *Mint Berry*

215: Sneasel (Dark/Ice)

Description: Some say that Sneasel is to GSC what Scyther was to RBY.
The difference is, Sneasel can't do much with his STAB attacks, whereas
Scyther learned Swords Dance and had physical types. Play Sneasel with
caution, as one Cross Chop kills it.

Natural Moves:
Scratch (start)
Leer (start)
Quick Attack (L9 Sneasel)

Recommended Movesets:
Screech, Reflect, Shadow Ball, Return *Miracle Berry*
Curse, Counter, Return, Shadow Ball *Leftovers*

200: Misdreavus (Ghost)

Description: Doesn't attack very well, but is one of the better Perish
Trappers in the game. Mean Look + Perish Song + Destiny Bond = death
(the set that I recommend took 5 out of 6 Pokemon in one match), and
you can use some defensive move or Pain Split to wreak havoc.

Natural Moves:
Growl (start)
Psywave (start)
Spite (L6 Misdreavus)
Confuse Ray (L12 Misdreavus)

137-233: Porygon/Porygon2 (Normal)

Description: The oddball of Normal types, it's got the greatest Special
Attack among Normals. Porygon2 also has decent HP and makes up for its
Speed issues with Thunder Wave. Still, you can do just about anything
with it.

Natural Moves:
Conversion (start)

Psych Up, Agility, Return, Recover *Leftovers* <--- I hate Curselax so
badly that I try to devise sets so EVERY Pokemon can whup it.

113-242: Chansey/Blissey (Normal)

Description: Remember the old days, when you could make Chansey elemental
and kick butt with it? Well, that's not going to happen now... 248 Special
Attack = down 90 points. You have two choices: Make a tank with Curse
(which gives the added advantage of Heal Bell) or an annoying Countering
Pokemon. Don't forget Softboiled.

Thunder Wave, Seismic Toss, Softboiled, Counter *Leftovers*
-These cannot be mixed. Heal Bell can't be sent to RBY.

131: Lapras (Water/Ice)

Description: Ahhh... Lapras. 400+ HP and 250+ Defenses make a Pokemon that's
awfully hard to beat down. Also, it uses its myriad of Special Attacks
quite well. Lapras has a lot of options, but I found the set below to work
very well.

138-139: Omanyte/Omastar (Water/Rock)

Description: Highest Special Attack among Water types makes Omastar a nice
attacking Pokemon. Also has very high Defense, typical of Rock Pokemon.
Use a lot of Special Attacks, and try to avoid Hazing away AP boosts.

140-141: Kabuto/Kabutops (Water/Rock)

Description: Unlike Omastar, Kabutops is more of an attacking Pokemon.

142: Aerodactyl (Rock/Flying)

Description: Despite what you think about the Rock Sliding Aero Lance
had in the Gameboy games, Aerodactyl can't learn Rock Slide. Good thing

1-2-3: Bulbasaur/Ivysaur/Venusaur (Grass/Poison)

Description: Was taken down a couple of notches in GSC. Razor Leaf
(its best move in the originals) doesn't CH like mad anymore, and it
doesn't learn Ancientpower like its fellow Grass starter Meganium. I
had trouble coming up with a 'set for Venusaur until I tried Parafuse.

4-5-6: Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard (Fire, Fire, Fire/Flying)

Description: Still has a massive Rock weakness, but it doesn't take
2x damage from Ice anymore (Fire resists Ice). Needs Earthquake for
Electrics and a potential kill on Rocks, while Sunny Day/Fire Blast
puts a serious dent in the hopes of Water Pokemon.

opponent's slower.

7-8-9: Squirtle/Wartortle/Blastoise (Water)

Recommended: Blastoise actually has appeal in this game, with his good
Defenses and HP. Also, it uses Mirror Coat and Minty Rest well, as it can
survive anything it's weak to other than Exeggutor's Solarbeam and
Zapdos' Thunder. Very powerful overall.

144: Articuno (Ice/Flying)

helps with the physical weaknesses.

impossible to get a L50 Dragonite.

246-247-248: Larvitar/Pupitar/Tyranitar (Ground/Rock, Ground/Rock,
Rock/Dark)

Description: T-Tar has a very common 4x weakness (Machamp is all the
rage these days), so switch against Fighters. It's got the best Attack

Description: It's El Grand Cheapo! Well, not anymore. Mewtwo was shredded
by the Special split, losing 130 points off his Special Defense, while
Amnesia's main benefit (Special Attack up) also disappeared. Can actually
be beaten without a Tobybro in this game. Darks really aren't much
trouble, as Submission should KO the main Dark attackers (T-Tar and
Houndoom) in two hits.

Psychic, Recover, Submission, special attack or Safeguard *Miracle Berry*
Psychic, Flamethrower, Ice Beam, Thunderbolt *Leftovers*

*Mewtwo doesn't have L50 stats because the lowest level Mewtwo legally
allowed is 70.

151: Mew (Psychic)

opponent unless you know what's coming. The recommended set is one of many
ways to play the little Psychic.

Recommended Movesets:
Ice Beam, Earthquake, Ancientpower, Psychic *Miracle Berry*
Whirlpool, Sweet Scent, Softboiled, Horn Drill *Leftovers*

251: Celebi (Psychic/Grass)

Description: Nintendo has a lot of explaining to do in regards to this
Pokemon (see Pokemon Rants). The reason why the alien's so anticipated is
the fact that it learns Heal Bell... the only non-Normal to do so. Also,
it's got balanced stats and a decent moveset.

Confusion (start)
Recover (start)
Heal Bell (start)

8) Secrets and Other Stuff

This is all the fun stuff you can do with PS2.

GSC Info in the Library
Contributed by: Donald

Normally, the Library doesn't have information on the Gold/Silver/Crystal
Pokemon. In order to unlock it, get the Raichu medal (beat the Elite 4
level) in the Academy.

Baton Passing Farfetch'd
Contributed by: Donald

If you beat the Rival in R1, you'll get a Farfetch'd that knows Baton
Pass.

Earthquake Gligar
Contributed by: Donald

Beat the Rival in R2 (good luck), and you'll get a Gligar that knows
Earthquake! Finally, Gligar can shaft Electrics with a super-effective
move. Also, it knows Wing Attack and Counter.

Three Title Screens
Contributed by: Donald

There are three different title screens for PS2:
-One with baby Pokemon on a clear day. This lasts until you beat the
R1 Rival, then you get...
-One with fully-evolved Pokemon fighting at night. You'll have this screen
until you beat the Rival in R2.
-Finally, you'll get a screen with Lugia and Ho-oh facing off when you
beat the R2 Rival.

Doduo and Dodrio (2-4x speed for GB tower) modes
Contributed by: Donald

The best part of PS1 was that you could use Dodrio mode and potentially
beat the GB game in a day. It's back for PS2, with a few modifications.

-To unlock Doduo (double-speed) mode for RBY, beat all the cups in the
Stadium in R1, or beat both Gym Leader Castles.
-To unlock Dodrio (quad-speed) mode for RBY, complete the other requirement
for Doduo mode. (Example: If you beat the Stadium, go whup the Gym Leaders.)
-To unlock Doduo mode for GSC, beat the R2 Stadium _or_ Gym Leader Castle.
-To unlock Dodrio (note: this is only 3x speed) for GSC, complete the
other requirement.

Move Returner
Contributed by: Donald

If you beat the Johto Gym Leader Castle with your own Pokemon (not
registered), Lance will give you the opportunity to give your Pokemon
a chance to relearn a NATURAL (no Egg moves) move that had been forgotten
previously.

This trick can be used to give your Lugia Aeroblast (for the Gold players)
or a Ho-oh Sacred Fire (Silver players).

If you'll allow me, I'd like to give some random musings about PS2.

-It's too bad Doduo and Dodrio modes for GSC don't allow full color gaming.
Heck, Dodrio mode doesn't even have a border.
-Also, why can't people who haven't beat the unElite 4 in GSC use Doduo/
Dodrio mode? It'll make the process a lot quicker.
-Another GS complaint: Why can't you transfer Pokemon in the lab from
one game to another through the N64 PC? (You can, but the receiving game
requires 150 Pokemon.) I wanted to start my game over recently, and blew
all my early cash on Poke Balls to pull a series of trades.
-The Rival in R2 is actually worse than the R2 Mewtwo in PS1. The Rival
can switch his Pokemon around, Mewtwo has to sit there and take the
punishment. *remembers the time he killed the R2 Mewtwo with Toxic and
Leech Seed from his Exeggutor*
-More proof that Crystal can be used with PS2: There's a female trainer
in the end credits, and one of the features of Crystal is a female trainer.
-Earl looks fat enough to be Mario with a haircut.
-Why must the rental Mew and Celebi suck so much? The stats for it are
over 60 points off the max... and the movesets aren't that hot either.

9) Pokemon Rants

Oh no, I'm not done ranting yet.

a) Nintendo's Marketing

Pokemon must be a great game to survive the fools that run it.

Since the game was first released in 1998 (Red/Blue for the old Game Boy),
Nintendo has dropped the ball with:

-The anime
-Previous games that really were dumb ideas (Pokemon Snap, Hey You Pikachu!,
etc.)
-The poorly-planned tours and Mew
-The 2000 World Pokemon Championships (speficially, the US qualifying)
-Celebi

The anime is argument #1 for people who slam the game. The problem is,
the anime actually debuted BEFORE the games, leaving a lot of people with
bad impressions of the game. As such, they slammed it as being "too
kiddy". When in reality, there's a lot of complicated things in Pokemon
when you get down to it. Complicated things include the calculation of
statistics, the creation of a "perfect team" (doesn't exist), and the
design of movesets.

Future games (such as the pinball game, Snap, and Hey You Pikachu!) didn't
help. Pokemon Pinball really is an okay pinball game, but the fact that
there's Pokemon involved pulled a lot of people away from it. Pokemon
Snap was far too short (my brother, an experienced player, beat the game in
two HOURS, and we had all the Pokemon in two days), and the concept of
getting high scores didn't give the game enough replay value. And Hey You
Pikachu! was not a good use of voice-recognition. Why not put it in a
football game, where you can literally "call the plays" in one-player mode?
Or in an RPG (not Pokemon) where you can make important decisions vocally?

When the RPGs began to fly off the shelves, Nintendo began to form tours
to publicize the RPGs and the card game. However, a good majority of the
Pokemon populace didn't get a chance to attend the tours due to our
location. The main reason a lot of us wanted to go to the tours in the
first place was to get the 151st Pokemon, Mew. Why wasn't it just put in
the game as a reward for "catching 'em all"? That was the main selling
point for the games, and all that the player gets is a diploma. Granted,
that was what people got in Japan (thanks to Meowth346 for doing the
research on that), unlike later when Celebi would appear. Still, Nintendo
plugged on with the tours.

The high point of a lot of Pokemon tours was the concept of people having
link battles and testing out the fruits of their labor. This lead to the
search for a "World Pokemon Champion", which was held in 2000. Most of the
national championships were well done (England's especially, despite the
GameShark paranoia of a couple of reps, which may have cost one player a
trip to the worlds). However, the United States only allowed 128 people
to attempt to represent their country, of which 64 were from the same
time zone. Also, why were qualification tourneys only held at Wizards of the
Coast stores? Nintendo's had success with holding events at Wal-Mart, which
is in almost every city and town in North America. I'm not slamming the
success of Ian "EeveeTrainer" Garvey, the US champ. Or Kurt "Sonuis"
Handley, who made the US nationals. It's just that the competition would've
been a lot fiercer if other cities were included.

On the World level, why wasn't Canada, home to some of the best trainers
around, not invited? Australia was included for a darn good reason: The
World Championships were in Sydney, and not inviting an Aussie wouldn't
have been proper. But Canada (similar population to Australia, about
3x the size), wasn't included. I, for one, would've liked a chance to
compete. Maybe another tournament, this one for GSC, is in the works
for Salt Lake City (2002 Winter Olympics) or Tokyo/Seoul (2002 World
Cup of Soccer), so they can correct that. If not, there's going to be
problems.

(Want to help get a championship? Sign the petition started by my colleague
Nick Moore at:

http://www.petitiononline.com/petitions/nickwhiz1.html)

The last straw came this past month, when Celebi (#251) wasn't included
in Pokemon Crystal. WHY? It was in the original Japaneese version of the
game: You used the Mobile Adapter, got the GS Ball, then after getting
16 badges, went to Kurt. The next day, he took you to the shrine in
Azalea, and you fought a L30 Celebi. The Mobile Adapter support was
taken out of Crystal, so that option wouldn't have been available. But
still, it could have been programmed so that the GS Ball was given to you
by Prof. Oak, or that one of the PS2 gift Pokemon came with it attached.
Nope, they just plum took it out. There was a contest to give 251 people
Celebi, but that leaves how many people scrambling for a GameShark? There's
another tour coming, so look for a Celebi machine. That is, if you can get
to a Six Flags theme park.

Still, Pokemon will survive. For the past 34 months, it's fallen victim
to some of the dumbest ideas in video game history. And it's survived.
That's why it's a good bet.

-Donald Theriault, Dartmouth NS, July 31, 2001

b) The Clause Rant

"It's pretty sad when a Pokemon battle has more clauses than the US
Constitution" -PikaCharma, Azure Heights
"People use clauses to cover what their playing ability can't" -Mu, Azure
Heights
"Clausewhore" -The Great Dreamer

But what are these clauses? And do they really belong in the usual spectre
of gameplay? For this little rant, I use the three Rs: Rule, Rationale,
and Reaction.

Sleep Clause

Rule: Only one Pokemon can be put to sleep by the opponent at one time
(using Rest does not affect this)

Rationale: Since a Pokemon is essentially defenseless while asleep, it
prevents people on a hot streak from sweeping the battle

Reaction: I have been on the bad end of a Sleep sweep back in my n00b days,
when my friend's Gengar nailed 6 Hypnosis in a row and proceeded to
Dream Eater me to death. But that's a rare case. In Stadium, however,
the sleep count is usually cut in half of what it would be in a Game Boy
link battle, plus the moves Sleep Talk (allowing you to attack while
sleeping) and Heal Bell really weaken the effectiveness. Need I also
mention the Mint Berry? And if you really want to ruin Sleepers, just Fire
Blast them... the only Sleep moves worth using are Lovely Kiss, Sleep
Powder, and Spore. All of the Pokemon that use it are Fire-weak (except
Smeargle). Conclusion: It's really not needed.

Freeze Clause

Rule: No more than one Pokemon may be frozen at a time

Rationale: An Ice-type on a hot streak could conceivably freeze an entire
team solid, preventing it from doing anything.

Reaction: If you clause Freeze, you essentially clause luck. There's no
move that offers Freeze as its sole purpose, and the attacks that do
inflict Freeze only do so 1 out of every ten shots. Plus, Pokemon can
now defrost (9.7% chance), and there are moves designed to help frozen
Pokemon (Sacred Fire and Flame Wheel). Or, if you suspect a Fire
move coming, switch a frozen Pokemon in and they'll defrost that way.
Or Heal Bell, or Burnt Berry... etc. Conclusion: Not needed. (NOTE: Stadium
2 automatically enforces this clause).

Item Clause

Rule: The same item can't be held by two Pokemon

Rationale: Does everyone have the same luck of getting Miracleberries?
Or Leftovers?

Reaction: HELL YEAH! Getting more Leftovers is as easy as grabbing a RBY
game and yanking them off Snorlax. Miracleberries are usually held
to one a team anyway, so that's not a factor. This clause was probably
thrown into Stadium 2 so Nintendo could test your mad item juggling
skillz. Conclusion: Not needed.

Evade Clause

Rule: You can't use Double Team or Minimize at all/only on Pokemon that
naturally learn it/can use, but only on one Pokemon (all three variations
seen)

Rationale: Evading makes battles last too long.

Reaction: Would it kill you to bring a bloody Hazer? Good lord... This
is known around the Internet as "Cat-Gonk clause" in deferrence to
Kingdra fan and Double Team (ab)user Ancient Egyptian Cat-Gonk. As
mentioned, Haze is an easy counter to the evading, and there's a number
of excellent Pokemon that can learn it. Conclusion: Not needed. (This
clause not enforced in Stadium 2, I just felt like ranting about it).

OHKO Clause

Rule: Same as Evade Clause, only with Horn Drill/Fissure/Guillotine

Rationale: OHKOs have no real defense, and hit more than the 29.6% accuracy
would indicate.

Reaction: The prevalance of OHKO moves and the fact that they were changed
from speed dependant to level dependant has made them popular. Another
reason? Curselax and its swearing bretheren. Still, a simple remedy to
this is allowing the use of Evasion, or using Flying/Ghost Pokemon. And
if OHKOs have 60% accuracy for you, I pity your luck. Conclusion: Drop it.
(This also isn't enforced in Stadium 2).

00ber-Legendary Clause

Rule: Mewtwo, Mew, Lugia, Ho-oh, and Celebi can't be used in battle

Rationale: Those 5 Pokemon completely unbalance the game. If you
try to counter them, you end up having nothing left for the other 246.

Reaction: Funny, my Tyranitar and Jolteon seem to have no problem at all
countering those 5... But this is one of the clauses I do support. There
is something completely unbalancing about them:

-Mewtwo's got the monster Special Attack, Speed, and can learn Submission
to beat its one true weakness (Dark).
-Mew learns everything, so it's pratically impossible to plan for.
-Lugia and Ho-oh have monster Defenses. Should birds be able to survive
2 Zapdos Thunderbolts without fainting? They can. Also, unless you give
Tyranitar a Hard Stone, his Ancientpower will NOT faint Ho-oh, despite
a 4x weakness! If you do give T-Tar a Hard Stone, he has about a 55% chance
of pulling it off.
-Celebi with Leech Seed and Recover + Leftovers is very difficult to take
out as well

I'm kinda leaning toward Celebi being legal (7 weaknesses, basically
dead to the first Curser or Steel-type that it sees), but the 00ber-ban
will remain for a long time. Conclusion: Keep it.

Other clauses I've seen called in battle: Paralyze Clause, Recovery
Clause, and even THUNDERBOLT Clause (don't make a team with a 5-way
Electric weakness, or you'd be calling that too). Why? Just stick
with what we've got, pack a Heal Beller and a Hazer, don't forget your
Leftovers, and enjoy.
