Struggling with the Elite four Phase 1? - Pokemon FireRed
Struggling with the Elite four Phase 1?
Heres some help
RECOMMENDED TYPES: FIRE and ELECTRIC types
Excellent choices vs everything but jynx: Zapdos, Jolteon, Electrode, Electabuzz, Raichu, or Your over-powered Venusaur.
Against jynx: Charizard, Moltres, Flareon, or Arcanine
These are just some of the faster pkmn of their types so they are worth raisng.
RECOMMENDED TYPES: WATER and a PSYCHIC or FLYING type
Excellent choices vs. Onixes: anything evolved that is WATER and is over LV. 35.
Vs. His fighters: Your zapdos, Fearow, Pidgeot, Golbat, Gengar, or alakazam definately will destroy him.
RECOMMENDED TYPES: you better have that Alakazam or Gengar handy because you'll need it but, if you like doing things the hard way, Zapdos can be a pretty nasty foe for them to face.
*By this point you may be thinking "why does Zapdos keep appearing in this?"
WELL it's because if you save before you fight him and keep catching him until his nature is benificial to his SP. ATK, w/o hindering speed then youll have a good Zapdos, Timid nature would be good because he gets more speed even if he loses
ATK. Let him know DRILL PECK, THUNDERBOLT, RAIN DANCE, and let him learn THUNDER on his own. DONT TEACH IT TO HIM IT'S A WASTE OF A RARE AND POWERFUL TM!!!
Excellent choices: Alakazam, Gengar, Zapdos, Nidoking/Queen, or a pkmn that has a powerful dark move like crunch.
RECCOMENDED TYPES: DRAGON, ICE, and ELECTRIC
Put Zapdos first and hit his gyarados with thunderbolt b/c itll kill him
He'll send out Aerodactyl next so strike that thing with Thunder. Then switch For Articuno if you have it or maybe that Dragonite you worked hard to desperately raise (or cheated to get). Or keep Zapdos out and hit it with Thunderbolt, then Thunder. Then beat his two Dragonairs. They aren't much trouble but don't use zapdos use maybe your blastoise that you taught blizzard to. Then waste all your healing items and brace yourself for one more challenge, which is obviously,
NAME: YOU RIVALS NAME
WHAT YOU'LL NEED: heres the match up
Zapdos vs. Pidgeot
Gengar vs. Alakazam
Vaporeon or Blastoise vs. Rhydon
Charizard or Zapdos vs. Exeggutor
Vaporeon or Blastoise vs. Arcanine
Zapdos vs. Gyarados
Zapdos vs. Blastoise
Zapdos vs. Venusaur
Zapdos or Vaporeon vs. Charizard
Your best team would probably be (this is with minimum damage and provided all your pkmn are lv 50 or above and all attacks hit)
Gengar (yes trading would be a good idea)
Vaporeon (w/ that much health you can't go wrong)
Alakazam (more trading)
Charizard (or blastoise too I guess w/ Ice beam)
Snorlax (i haven't mentioned him but if you do get in a tight situation w/ Lance or Agatha and he's LV. Like 50-ish then send him out because he can take a beating and keep using rest and snore while you use hyperpotions and revives)
RECOMMENDED ITEMS: 45 hyper potions at the most (stuff happens)
15-20 revives (Again, stuff happens)
10 full heals (status problems come along every now and then)
