Beating Surge, Koga, Blaine, and Giovonni with ease
Hey, the old Pokemon games are old, but there's always new stuff to be learned about them. For instance, in R/B/Y versions, there is one Pokemon that you can catch that will make defeating the Third, fifth,seventh and eighth simple and easy. His/Her name is Dugtrio; a little trio of moles [digletts] that can be caught in the tunnel near Cermillion City. Dugtrio is pretty much the ultimate straight ground type in the game. He is found at level 29-30 and knows the move Dig when yu catch him. This move is going to be one of your favorites for defeating the gym leaders I mentioned earlier.
Surge may be tough with his level 24 Riachu, but fear not, nowwith your new partner in crime Dugtrio, you can beat him easily, and his cute little electic attacks won't affect you. Now it's tiem for the fun part:
Now the big bad army veteran is in shambles, and you're in the winner's circle.
Now just train Dugtrio like you would with any other pokemon. (my advice: teach him Cut)
It's much the same with all the other Gym Leaders. Except you might wanna get a fire type with Dig for backup. (You get TM28 [dig] from the rocket dude in Cerulean)
