It would be best to use the three legendary birds, and Mew, if you got it. Then you can get a Haunter and any other Pokemon, maybe a Rock-type like Graveler or a Water-type like Lapras, or even a Dragonair.

Usually the Legendary Birds: Zapdos, Moltres and Articuno, but you can have others like Blastoise, Charizard, Venasaur, Alakazam, Haunter, Gengar, Snorlax, Arcanine, Magmar, Machamp, Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Dragonite, Aerodactyle. Basically the really powerful ones.

There are 4 types of trainers but they are all elemental so here are the following:
Ice
Earth
Ghost
Dragon
So here are the list of pokemons I would recommend them:
Pikachu: for the first trainer
Blastoise/alakazam/lapras will be the best option for the second trainer
Psychic related will work well on this trainer.
Use a ice-type Pokemon for the final trainer. Use pikachu because he has aerodactyl and he is vulnerable to thunder type. As for the rest just use ice type.

I like to have at least one good electric pokemon(Zapdos, Raichu, Electabuzz) for the 1st trainer, a good psychic or water pokemon(Alakazam, Mew, Mewtwo, Mr. Mime) for the 2nd, a Pokemon that knows an attack like earthquake, dig, or any strong earth-type attack for the ghosts and a psychic for the rest of the 3rd trainers, and an ice pokemon(Lapras, Cloyster) for the dragons with the 4th. You will need multiple types for gary at the end.

I have Charizard, Venasaur, Blastoise, Raichu, Alakazam and Mewtwo and that works pretty well. Even though I have two Psychic pokemon it's fine because their only weakesses are bug and ghost (but the only three ghosts in the game are also poision which psychic is super-effective on). As for bug, when have you ever heard of someone having a lvl. 100 beedrill or butterfree?

Dragonite(catch Dratini in safari zone then raise it, give it thunder[in power plant], ice beam[top floor of biggest poke mart and give the girl water, lemonade, and soda], surf or fire blast[fire blast won in fire gym], and hyper beam[learned]. The three legendary birds[when you meet with them save before facing them and if you do not catch them then just turn it off and try again! A psychic Pokemon(I ue venemoth and he works really well with sleep powder, stun spore, psybeam, and psychic). And aerodactyl(find the fossil and take it to cinnabar city I think to the lab, the last door, and they will bring him back to life. These 6 are basically unstoppable. Here are other strong Pokemon suggestions: pikachu, clefairy, rhydon, graveler, lapras, charizard, venasaur, blastoise, staru,maybe executtor, hitmonchan or hitmonlee, cloyster, arkanine, gengar. Sorry if this is long, but just trying to help! Here is the final successful team
Dragonite
Moltres
Articuno
Zapidos
Any Psychic Pokemon(venemoth for me)
Aerodactyl

 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 1st Apr 2012, ID #494572
Mew (or Mewtwo)
Dragonite (or gyarados)

Pidgeot (or Machamp)

Though these are more mine on preference of Pokemon then actuall stats.

Best team in yellow or any game possible with out legendary's
Riachu- just because it's the main electric
The 3 starters-just amazing
Lapres-great Pokemon and an ice type
And the greatist Pokemon in gen 1 with the best moves possible
Snorlax-rest-snore-double edge-and hyperbeam
With leftovers he just does not die.
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 19th Jul 2012, ID #524152
Pikachu (because you already spent time training, and it's a strong electric type if you take the time with it.)

Pidgeot

Charizard (Good fire type, and you get early, Arcaine works well too)

Eevee (Vaporeon for it's ice attacks, Jolteon if you don't keep pikachu, Flareon if you don't like the other fire options *but flareon, while my fav, is low on defense.*

Gengar (if you can) is what I use, but if you're new, I would use Alakazam (if you can) or Hypno (good strong fall back)

Dragonite (can learn good attacks and works really well against Gary)
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 23rd Jul 2012, ID #525248
I'm planning on using

Haunter - Trade to evolve into Gengar
Moveset - Hypnosis - Dream Eater - Confuse Ray - Night Shade

Cloyster - Defence is awesome
Moveset - Blizzard - Clamp - Surf - Aurora Beam

Kadabra - Trade to evolve into Alakazam
Moveset - Psybeam - Psychic - Confusion - Recover

Zapdos - Strong Electric type
Moveset - Thunder Shock - Drill Peck - Thunder - Sky Attack

Articuno - Strong Ice type
Moveset - Blizzard - Ice Beam - Fly - Rest

Moltres - Strong Fire type
Moveset - Peck - Fire Spin

Anyone have any recommendations on what better moves for the legendary birds would be? OR better moves for my other Pokemon?
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 28th Jul 2012, ID #526454
I'd go with the following Pokemon:

Pika/Raichu - Decent Pokemon
Blastoise - Every Starter
Venusaur - is Decent
Charizard - or Good
Machamp - Great attack
Mewtwo - Very high Sp. Att and Speed

I might change Blastoise for Lapras, Lapras has better types I think and his stats come pretty close to Blastoise's Stats.

Btw, Psychic Pokemon are Overpowered here because the maker made a mistake. Ghost would be super effective against Psychic. Even some in-game trainers say that. But the makers of Gen. 1 made it non-effective. That and the fact that Psychic Pokemon usually can learn a huge variety of different type moves makes a very Good/Overpowered type.
Due to that, another team would be:
Mewtwo
Mew
Venemoth
Alakazam
Kadabra
Hypno

As I only passed trough Pokemon yellow allways with only 1 main Pokemon .. I have little experience in team management.. But:

My preferred (mostly estetics and for purpuse of solo playing) team is as follow:

Nidoking - This "little" fella as been my favourite Pokemon since my first walktrough yellow Pokemon I used only him and no one else with this moveset...
(Earthquaque, Ice Beam, Tunderbold and Trash.. Yes Trash in yellow v. Is very good to clean up trainers with pokemons levels inferior to yours when you reach elite four you can change it of course for a better move like surf or flametrower.

Dragonite - When I was a kid, for me this was the most rarest, precious and strongest Pokemon.. Today my opinion is very much changed, but anyway as soon as I could obtain dratini in the safari zone by fishing I would go immediatly train him intensely and then make the choise of only using dragonite or nidoking

As for the rest.. Me and Tradable Evolution Pokemon allways were very close to each other xD often used for tm's (I'm sorry alakazam!)

Golem
Gengar
Machamp
Alakazam

I´m still planning on making a solo run with one of the traddable evolution pokemons.. I think I will give both machamp or alakazam a try and I will not regret it.

He beat the elite four and rival alone at level 62. Had to use an elixir cause he ran out of moves. Afterwards I used pp ups to up the amount of surf, hyper beam, and body slam.

Guest answered: Added 10th Feb 2013, ID #570165
The good thing about pkmn yellow, blue and red is that you can use a big lot of different Pokemon because they are a lot more powerfull than the other versions of pokemon.
For example, parasect is a good Pokemon in ybr and not in the others.
So this is a good choice for a team:
Parasect, electrode, starmie, flareon, machamp, and dragonite

Guest answered: Added 28th Jun 2013, ID #594324
Dugtrio (Dig)
Jolteon (Thunderbolt, Thunder)
Nidoking (Fissure, Drillhorn) Can learn tons of variety type moves.
Charizard (Fly, Flamethrower, Fireblast)
Mew/Mewtwo/Kadabra/Alakazam/Hypno/Haunter/Genger (Physic, Psybeam)
The sixth can be of your choice here are some that come to mind.
Lapras, Blastoise, Pika/Raichu, Articuno.
Here's the setup for the best and easiest way to walk through the Elite Four.
Open with Jolteon for Thunder/Bolt. Stick with Jolteon until Jynx. Use Charizard Flamethrower then switch back to Jolteon for the other Pokemon.
Nidoking/Dugtrio/Charizard. Dugtrio Dig for the rock Pokemon and Charizard Fly for the others. Nidoking's moveset will vary on what you want. Nidoking 'could' solo the whole Elite Four with the right movesets.
The third, by far the easiest, Dugtrio for everything except goldbat, use Jolteon/Charizard for it.
Lance the fourth. Assuming one of your Pokemon has Ice Beam (I think Nidoking can learn it). Send out Jolteon first for his Gyrados, switch to a Pokemon that has ice type moves for the dragons.
As for the last.. His type of Pokemon vary on what you had during the playthrough. Dugtrio Dig can easily demolish most of his team.
Here are moves that is a must have.
Dig, Fly, Ice Beam, Surf, Thunderbolt, Flamethrower,
Psychic

 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 4th Jul 2013, ID #595330
I just about walked through all four with a level 52/53 (leveled up through the competition) Hypno. The combination of Hypnosis, Dream Eater, Confusion and Seismic Toss results in a versatile fighter that, once Hypnosis is effective, can knock out anything either psychically or physically.

Supporting characters were Articuno (it's Ice Beam is lethal), Zapdos (save the Thunder TM for it), Moltres (ditto the Fire Blast TM), Dewgong (the Surf HM is good against fire/ground types) and Gloom (use Sleep Powder in combination with Mega Drain, the Cut HM and Solar Beam TM).

My strategy throughout was to lead with Hypnosis/Sleep Powder and then rotate the most effective Pokemon in to finish, or finish with force via Seismic Toss. Make sure you have some ethers or elixers as you only have 20 shots with Hypnosis.

Incidentally, this strategy worked wonders even against the psychic gym leader, as psychic defenses are generally weak and, so long as they're hypnotized, they cannot use their regenerative abilities.

I would choose a balanced team:

Alakazam
Machamp
 
 
 
 
Guest answered: Added 3rd Oct 2013, ID #604554
Pikachu- thunderbolt, thunder, agility or thunder wave(useful for catching Pokemon throughout the game), and slam---- next option would be zapados or jolteon

Charizard- fireblast, flamethrower, fly, and slash---- next option arcanine, not big on moltres

Venusaur- solarbeam, razorleaf, cut, and megadrain

Lapras(very versatile)- icebeam, surf, psychic, and hydro pump---- next option articuno (only legendary bird I would use because of type)

Dragonite(most versatile)- icebeam(tm), thunder(tm), hyperbeam, and slam

Alakazam- psychic, psybeam, flash or reflect, and recover

Once lapras and dragonite are strong enough, you could run through the elite four with just ONE of them and use weaker Pokemon with exp. Share to level up

I like this lineup, but it is not statistically the strongest in the game.

With this selection it's possible to defeate the elite 4 with all Pokemon at level 45.
