Back when we had no idea what EVs and IVs were... back when we put pokemon on our teams because they looked cool, we liked them, or we had a gut feeling that 'this pokemon would be awesome on my team'. My in game team in my Gold was something along the lines of... Typhlosion - Oh my god how kickass was this thing. You could literally take apart the entire Elite Four with it alone. I loved its looks and powerful Flamethrower. Scizor - It just looked so powerful, and its typing was so unique (Forretress go cry in a corner!). Even though it had no Bullet Punch or anything like that back then, it was still a really cool pokemon. Raikou - My favourite of the legendary dogs. I personally always thought it was a tiger lol. I remember I got really annoyed because it wouldn't learn Thunderbolt for ages and I had to make do with Spark. Kingdra - It was the best dragon there was back then. Much cooler than old Dragonite. It was the final pokemon of the last gym leader in Johto and so it did have a kind of legendary status attached to it. Heracross - Was really hard to get because it only appeared in those 'special' headbutt trees. Another of my favourite pokemon from GSC. Houndoom - As soon as I saw Houndoom I became infatuated with the dark type. It looked so evil and powerful, and was just a badass pokemon in general. So how about you guys? If you remember what pokemon you used in your in game teams in the GSC games, post here and let us all know! LR.
