    Eh, I have no problem with gym leaders that specialize, but how about a Dark Type Gym Leader? We have multiple Dark Type Elite 4 members...

    I always thought the idea of a gym leader that specialized in explosive-Pokemon would be amusing...

    SELF-DESTRUCT, SELF-DESTRUCT...

    I remember in Blue/Yellow I'd always hope Koga's Weezing would use selfdestruct.

    There probably wasn't any intent but your post did look like an attempt to make yourself big.

    I haven't played the game since the early 2000's but I'll never forget getting my ass kicked by brock to the point where I only had a kakuna left (I guess I didn't train the others properly). It only knew harden, but after a LONG while, I defeated him because kakuna ran out of harden moves and did that struggle thing. Luckily I was so hardened by then, the damage I inflicted on myself didn't even phase me. To cap things off, right after onix fainted, it evolved into a beedrill.......so yeah, EPIC.

    I assume your starter was a Charmander? Squirtle and Bulbasaur by that time should have Brock's number!

    Although winning with a Kakuna is quite the achievement! It's like winning with a Magikarp!

    Yeah, I always was a charmander guy. After brock and misty, he becomes extremely worth it.

    Yeah definitely. Although I found out he's quite useful outside of the gyms as well, since most trainers annoy you with lv.30 Caterpies of Pidgeys! And there isn't really another fire-type that you catch early and raise it properly.

    Choosing Charmander is probably just as tough as Chikorita through the first 2 gyms of their respective games.

    Man, I love Pokémon. Like @Jesse Pinkman, I usually pick the Fire starter, save for 1st and 4th generations, where it's Grass for me.

    I also always pick the fire starter in every generation except the 3rd where I go for water instead.

    i'll get around to it.
    Or you could do it my way

    Same, I'll probably restart Leaf again with Squirtle after my current Fire save with Bulbasaur. I already did Charmander and didn't complete it because of stupid decisions.

    Eh, I just know the basic ones! Water beats Fire, Fire beats Grass, Electric beats Water, etc. Although I do know which type can beat what.

    Yeah, stuff like the water-fire-grass triangle is basic.
    I just played too many games with other systems (the Final Fantasies for instance) where the elemental weakness can differ.

    Anyway, Viridian City throughout the games...
    I wonder how many politicians were bribed by the residential major to call that village a 'city'.

    Shuckle? Interesting.

    But I just can't help but notice that the desgins get worse by region. This for example:



    If you quickly go through the video you can clearly see that they get worst by region. I cannot take Unova's Elite Four seriously for that reason!

    Oh, you're a defensive player.
    To be honest, I always forget to use defensive moves.

    I was like that when I was younger, but then I discovered their usefulness.

    Shuckle doesn't have enough HP to be useful defensively though. Now Snorlax or Chancey/Blissey...
