Hi there, Smogon! My name's M. Rock, and I have a thing for classic pokemon. Long story short, my old Gold Version and Transfer Pak still work perfectly, and I want to make a YouTube "Let's Play" series of Pokemon Stadium 2 with my gameboy mons! However, I can't do it alone. Based on what I have, I need ideas for a good team, as well as some good nicknames. This promises to be a fun project . I won't start until June because I have prom and graduation related stuff to square away, but I figure I'd get a head start on teambuilding. I'm going to use rentals for Little Cup, unless some one has a cool strategy I can make with GB Pokemon. Some quick notes: People will recieve credit for strategies and nicknames used in my LP After reading this thread (http://www.smogon.com/forums/showthread.php?t=3467090), I'm much less motivated to raise Pokemon to lv. 100 for Prime Cup. I have a lot of things to do this summer, so I don't want to have to raise more than 6 lv. 100 Pokemon. No Crytal move tutor, so some pokes can't have Thunderbolt/Ice Beam/Flamethrower No Ubers - I want a good challenge! No special egg moves for the starters like Swords Dance Meganium because no Crystal I can clone TMs I can't trade, so there are certain Pokemon I can't get (no Gengar ;_;) I used a glitch to get all three starters. I used a variant of the same glitch to get Thunder, Blizzard, and Fire Blast for the price of one. No GameSharks here :). No Silver exclusives, namely Donphan and Skarmory ;_; So, on to team building. Pokemon that I have (I have more, but these are the only ones I think will be useful): Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide · Abra lv. 5, "Mind Freak" (Psychic/Thunderpunch/Fire Punch/Ice Punch) * Chansey lv. 5, "Fat Bitch" (Fire Blast/Toxic/Rest/Sleep Talk) (-> Blissey) * Mareep (-> Ampharos) · Dratini lv. 12 (M) (-> Dragonite) * Eevee lv. 20 (M) (Now I can get the whole family) * Entei lv. 40 (untrained) · Exeggcute lv. 10 (M) (-> Exeggutor) · Feraligatr lv. 53, “Gatorade” (M) (Bite/Scary Face/Strength/Surf) · Pineco lv. 10 (M) (-> Forretress) · Red Gyarados lv. 30, “Red” · Heracross lv. 37, “BeetleJuce” (M) (Counter/Cut/Take Down/Endure) · Jynx lv. 50 (Mean Look/Lovely Kiss/Ice Punch/Psychic) · Magnemite (-> Magneton) · Cubone lv. 5, "Boner" (M) (Earthquake/Rock Slide/Curse/Screech) (-> Marowak) · Chikorita lv. 8 (-> Meganium) (NO SWORDS DANCE) · Miltank lv. 15 · Nidoking lv. 52, “Neato King” (Earthquake/Fire Blast/Thunderpunch/Double Kick) · Raikou lv. 48, “ThunderCat” (Rain Dance/Thunder/Roar/Quick Attack) * Scyther (M) (LC) · Shuckle (lol) · Slowbro lv. 22 · Snorlax lv. 50, “DrFeelgood” (M) (Freshly caught!) * Staryu lv. 40 (-> Starmie) * Larvitar lv. 20 (-> Tyranitar) · Tentacool lv. 36 (M) (-> Tentacruel) · Typlosion lv. 52 (M) (Fire Punch/Earthquake/Swift/Thunderpunch) · Teddiursa (M) (-> Ursaring) · Wobbuffet lv. 22, “U MAD?” (M) (trololololol) Pokemon I don't have but might need: Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide · Cloyster · Houndoom? · Kangaskhan? · Lapras? · Misdreavus · Quagsire? · Rhydon (Trade a girl a Dragonair in Blackthorn City) · Suicune (Find it then use Jynx to get it) · Tauros (Found just outside Olivine City, very rare) Items that I have: Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide · 1 of every berry EXCEPT Miracle Berry · Pink Bow · Nevermeltice · Hard Stone · Miracle Seed · LEFTOVERS x2 · Dragon Fang · Charcoal · Focus Band · Sharp Beak · Spell Tag · Metal Coat · Thick Club * All evolution stones except Sun Stone (so I have Moon, Thunder, Leaf, Water, and Fire stones) TMs: Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content) Show Hide Hide Hide · I will go get all of them. At least I have multiple copies of the most important moves: Curse, Sleep Talk, Earthquake, Fire Blast, Thunder, Blizzard, Return, and Psychic, to name a few. So, what should I use for pokemon/movesets? How many and what kind of vitamins should I give my pokemon? Who should get the coveted leftovers? Remember, this isn't GSC OU, so I don't have to worry about certain things (like Spikes or SleepTalkers). I also need to figure out how I'm going to record this thing, probably need something better than a Flip Video camera on a tripod... So, feel free to suggest strategies, nicknames, anything you want! :) EDIT: There are some elementary things I already know, like replace Typhlosion's Fire Punch w/Fire Blast or level up Heracross to learn Megahorn. The ones with full movesets listed are ones I used in the in-game journey. I will eventually delete Cut from Heracross, obviously.
