I'd fight Misty again and again, getting experience from beating staryu until Bel/oddish finally was able to beat her. This way you easily add a new member on your team (since Oddish/bel will be the same level/higher by the time it manages to beat Misty).
Misty was fun in my mono-fire RB Game (aka Solo Charmander line until Celeadon City basically). Oh how I loved Auto-CH Slash on Charmeloen. Basically you just Slashed it and prayed Starmie would use Harden or Water Gun instead of Bubblebeam and then finish it with another Slash. Gogo overleveling!
