    Blastoise, Victreebel, Mr. Mime, Hitmonlee. All I ever needed to beat the Elite Four. Never really had a complete team. Would usually just run around adventuring with 2-4 of my Pokemon.

    I finished a Red Nuzlocke (if you're wondering what that is, it's where you can only catch the first encounter per area, and faint = death (release or permabox)), so here's my team. They're all 55/56.

    [​IMG]
    CALVIN (Surf, Ice Beam, Strength, Fissure)
    My starter, nothing really special about him. But he's been there the entire adventure, and has been a huge help the whole time.

    [​IMG]
    LENNIE (Hyper Beam, Blizzard, Thunderbolt, Super Fang)
    My first catch. Lemme tell you, this was a strong Raticate. Beat most of Loreli and some of Gary, and is always ready to one shot somebody.

    [​IMG]
    TAYLOR (Fly, Quick Attack, Substitute, Hyper Beam)
    She didn't do much...I really like Fearow, but TAYLOR has always been there and saved me from Kangashkan once. She's earned her place.

    [​IMG]
    LANCE (Twineedle, Hyper Beam, Swords Dance, Double Team)
    Yes, I DID use him. He swept Lance in the Elite Four. All by himself, at level 55. Seriously, don't underestimate Beedrill.

    [​IMG]
    JESS (Earthquake, Dig, Sand Attack, Slash)
    Earthquake is his selling point, and he had nice stats to complement it. Despite having no bulk, he was helpful.

    [​IMG]
    ASH (Flamethrower, Dig, Body Slam, Fire Blast)
    DEFINITELY the strongest! Swept Sabrina, and yes, I had to train him to 50 as a Growlithe. But when he learned Flamethrower, it was all worth it.

    I never actually owned RBY, but continually borrowed my friends. I got really attached to my first 6, and hardly ever switched them out.
    Venusaur/Blastoise (mainly Venusaur)
    Raticate (loaded with TMs)/Sometimes switched with whatever eeveelution I had (mainly Flareon)
    Pidgeot (for Fly)
    Butterfree
    Beedrill (Later dumped for Clefable - METRONOME!!)
    Pikachu/Raichu (always called Sparky - 3 electric attacks and quick attack)


    I was 5/6, don't laugh!

    I definitely haven't retired from RBY, I still play it all the time, but my main in-game and Stadium team from back in the day (that I still have on my Blue cart because I've kept my Blue save file since then) is

    Charizard
    - Flamethrower
    - Slash
    - Earthquake
    - Reflect

    Jolteon
    - Thunderbolt
    - Thunder Wave
    - Pin Missile
    - Double Team

    Gyarados
    - Surf
    - Blizzard
    - Thunderbolt
    - Hyper Beam

    Exeggutor
    - Sleep Powder
    - Mega Drain
    - Leech Seed
    - Psychic

    Golem
    - Earthquake
    - Rock Slide
    - Body Slam
    - Explosion

    Dodrio
    - Drill Peck
    - Fly
    - Body Slam
    - Toxic

    Not too bad, considering I was 12 when I put it together; it definitely got the job done. I clearly had no idea what to do with Dodrio, and in Stadium I don't think he ever even made it onto the roster of 3 in each match, but I just liked it so much.

    -Thunderbolt
    -Fire Blast
    -Fissure

    This guy is my all time favorite. As soon as I realized he could learn a move from almost every type, I was sold. He was my first to lvl 100, and using him I completely swept the elite four and Gary.


    [​IMG]
    -Surf
    -Hyper Beam
    -Hydro Pump
    -Thunderbolt

    Uhh, he's a flying chinese dragon? Yes please. Plus surfing was important so I could use the infinite Item glitch.


    [​IMG]
    -Fly
    -Flamethrower
    -Fire Blast
    -Hyper Beam

    I think I GameShark'd Fly, or maybe traded to Yellow, then traded back. Either way, he was my starter and my second favorite.


    [​IMG]
    -Hyper Beam
    -Thunderbolt
    -Dragon Rage
    -Cut

    Again, dragons. Thunderbolt and Hyperbeam were some of my favorite moves, so I taught them to as many of my Pokemon as possible.


    [​IMG]
    -Psychic
    -Tri-Attack
    -Recover
    -Swift

    I used my Alakazam over Mewtwo because I thought Mewtwo was lame. Just cause he was some genetic experiment doesn't mean he's any better than my Zammy!


    [​IMG]
    -Rock Throw
    -Dig
    -Earthquake
    -Strength

    Look at him! He's just soo cute!



    Yeah, I really only ever attacked. In fact, that's all I do now, cause I'm brand-spankin' new to the competitive scene. Hoping to learn the ropes though.

    Gengar
    - Psychic
    - Thunderbolt
    - Mega Drain
    - Explosion

    No Hypnosis here because I use it on Exeggutor, and I never was a fan of double sleep. Gengar has Psychic for enemy Gengar. This absorbs sleep and is then used for taking Explosion. Boom!

    [​IMG]
    Tauros
    - Body Slam
    - Hyper Beam
    - Earthquake
    - Blizzard

    [​IMG]
    Snorlax
    - Body Slam
    - Hyper Beam
    - Selfdestruct
    - Surf

    This was more helpful on my team than Tauros. Boom!

    [​IMG]
    Exeggutor
    - Sleep Powder
    - Psychic
    - Mega Drain
    - Explosion

    Boom!

    [​IMG]
    Cloyster
    - Clamp
    - Blizzard
    - Hyper Beam
    - Explosion

    Boom!

    [​IMG]
    Starmie
    - Recover
    - Blizzard
    - Thunderbolt
    - ??? (I think it was Surf, but Psychic looks pretty good, and maybe it was Thunder Wave)


    Some of the time, I would use Golem over Starmie (or possibly Cloyster) with Explosion (Boom!), Earthquake, Rock Slide, ??? (probably Body Slam).
