I could've sworn I added that exact link to my post before submitting, but the reason I wasn't sure about using it was because the badges boost your stats in Gen I. If these calcs are assuming you beat the game, it might mess up some things. I'm starting tomorrow though, so I'll use it if necessary.
Does anyone know the numbers of the Starters' max stats when you find them in Yellow? What would each stat spread look like when you get them for the first time if they were perfect? Additionally, what would their attack stats look like with the minimum DVs necessary to be male? (For reference...
Does this DV calc account for the Badges boosting your stats? I want to know what exactly my DVs are for the starters in Yellow, but I'm not sure if it accounts for the Badges. If not, how would I tell what the DVs really are? http://www.psypokes.com/gsc/dv.php
Edit: Actually someone answered...
I checked and it was Leaf Storm from Serp vs Giga Drain from Scep. Personally, I've been disappointed with M Sceptile. It couldn't KO my friends M Beedrill. That was disappointing. Honestly though, I'd still prefer to use Energy Ball most of the time.
The comparison I read was using Mew as well but was using Giga Drain. It shouldn't make a difference though but weird. I'll try to find the post if I can.
Edit: also Leaf Storm practically forces it to switch out.
