Sentret Mid-tier -Availability: Right at the beginning, evolves at Level 15. -Stats: Base 90 Speed but very frail with only middling Attack. -Movepool: Its moveset should be Strength / Surf / Cut and your choice between Shadow Ball and Iron Tail. Both are gym leader prizes. -Power: low, but STAB Strength is nice and reliable. Return could even work but only if you're willing to clone TM 27. -Type: Immune to Ghosts and can hit them with Shadow Ball. Weak to fighting -Match-ups: Weak to Chuck, can barely scratch Jasmine, can't touch Morty at all since it gets Shadow Ball right after Morty. Pidgey Low Tier -Availability: Right at the beginning. However, fully evolves rather late in Johto (level 36) -Stats: Bad stats until Pidgeot, even then they're nothing to write home about. -Movepool: Pretty shallow, its only HM (and, incidentally, worthwhile STAB) is Fly. -Power: Weak Attack, even as Pidgeot -Type: Immune to Ghost but gets beaten by Morty anyway. -Match-ups: So weak it can't even beat Bugsy or Chuck, the two gyms whose types are weak to its STAB. Don't even think about using it at the Elite 4.
