    Hi everyone! I play a tournement (N64 Stadium) with following rules:
    Pokemon: #001 - #149
    Banned Skills: wrap, clamp, fire spin

    Ive never played competitive pokemon before so I read along this awesome forum and here is my current team:

    EXEGGUTOR
    Explosion
    Psych
    Sleeppowder
    Stunspore

    SNORLAX
    Bodyslam
    Amnesia
    Selfdestruction
    Blizzard

    STARMIE
    Blizzard
    Thunderwave
    Thunderbolt
    Rest

    CHANSEY
    Icebeam
    Softboiled
    Thunderwave
    Thunderbolt

    TAUROS
    Blizzard
    Bodyslam
    Earthquake
    Hyperbeam

    GOLEM
    Bodyslam
    Earthquake
    Explosion
    Rockslide

    Maybe a second sleeper?

    I'm assuming you're also banning things like minimize and double team?

    Sleep is significantly worse on Stadium, so I wouldn't necessarily use a 2nd sleeper.
    I'd definitely put recover on Starmie instead of Rest.
    Your Snorlax set is rather unconventional, but I think it'll work out pretty well so I'm reluctant to suggest any replacements.
    Other than that it's all pretty decent/standard RBY. :)

    I have used that snorlax set in the past to decent success. It's ok, if you are going to be creative with one pokemon in rby, it should be snorlax.

    Either way, just make Starmie recover and you are good to go. This is probably the most standard team to ever exist in rby tbh.

    As someone who's actually played stadium, substitute >>>>> hyper beam on tauros. Substitute is incredible, I'd put it on golem too tbh (over rock slide). Sub/amnesia snorlax is amazing if you manage to paralyze one of their special attackers but your set is good too.

    Substitute Alakazam is a boss. I'd recommend using it.
