Good Team to fight Red hint for Pokemon Heart Gold

 
 
 

Good Team to fight Red

Most people go crazy training to fight red, when if you've got some tough Pokemon in Fire red, leaf green, or any other GBA game, he's a breeze. Just migrate high level (mid 80's to 100) Pokemon of the following types: Ground, Rock, fire fighting, thunder and one Pokemon with a variety of types. What makes this easier, is if you've got a gameshark, because you can get (if you look up the codes) a level 100 shiny groudon what knows solar beam, eruption, volt tackle, and water spout. My team was:

Level 100 Marowak, (100) salamence, (100) groudon like mentioned above, 100 sceptile, (70) meganium, and (100) mewtwo. I recomend loading up on stat changing stuff like iron, but if you've got a gameshark, you're pretty safe.


*EDIT: Ok, so i see that he isn't that hard. A pretty good team (not gameshark): lvl 60 typhlosion, 54 snorlax, 45 feraligatr, 50 ho-oh, and some other tough pokemon

I used:

Level 86 Tyranitar
Earthquake, Payback, Stone Edge, Strength

Level 92 Dragonite
Outrage, Dragon Dance, Waterfall, Fly

Level 100 Typhlosion
Flamethrower, Shadow Claw, Blast Burn, Rock Climb

Level 92 Raichu(you heard me right!)
Thunderbolt, Iron Tail, Quick Attack, Focus Blast

Level 87 Sceptile
Leaf Blade, Leaf Storm, Dragon Pulse, Rock Tomb

Level 87 Vaporeon
Surf, Ice Beam, Brine, Blizzard

I trained like a mad man to get to these levels. The way I did it is that I got Erika's phone number and set my DS on Sunday morning. When I kept beating her with Typhlosion's Flamethrower, I kept on calling her over and over until my Pokemon got to these levels.

Bryan1996:

I've beaten Red several times and I never really had any problems with him. All of these pokemon and their movesets are accessible in this game and do not require any cheats or trades, just alot of time and patience.



Charizard-(100): Flamethrower, Steel Wing, Counter, Dragon Pulse

Dragonite-(100): Draco Meteor, Dragon Rush, Thunder Punch, Ice Beam

Snorlax-(87): Giga Impact, Solarbeam, Crunch, Body Slam

Pikachu-(94): Thunderbolt, Volt Tackle, Iron Tail, Quick Attack

Feraligatr-(92): Hydro Pump, Superpower, Ice Fang, Rock Climb

Steelix-(87): Iron Tail, Double Edge, Stone Edge, Earthquake



At first when you fight Red, Charizard is unavailable to you (until you beat Red the first time). So at first I used:

Ho-oh-(84): Sacred Fire, Extrasensory, Fly, Thunder



This team was very hard to put together and it took quite some time. When I first beat Red I had already taken up 347 hours!!!! Yeah, that's a whole lot of time. Training each of these pokemon was definitely a challenge but turned out to be fun. Trust me, this is a winning team that I sat and planned out for weeks. My strategies worked and I'm glad that I can share them with someone else. First, If you want a strong Charizard then teach it a steel type move. If you haven't noticed, Charizard is extremely weak against rock types. Because of the "Stone Edge Charizard" theory, people have pushed him to the side and pulled out a Blaziken, or Typhlosion. Well, don't push him away just because of one flaw. Overcome that weakness and teach it a steel type move. No one ever suspects it. His Flamethrower is extremely strong and can KO Red's Venusaur easily. He can also hold his own against Red's Snorlax with Counter. I chose to use Dragonite because it's really hard to get a Garchomp without trading one over. Dragonite's Draco Meteor is an instant KO towards any pokemon with a low special defense stat such as Pikachu or Lapras. His Ice Beam can take out Venusaur, and His Thunder Punch can take out Blastoise and Lapras. Watch out for Blizzard because it can KO Dragonite easily. Snorlax is great to have because of his ability to weaken Ice and Fire attacks. His Solarbeam can potentially KO Blastoise, Crunch can handle Red's Snorlax, Giga Impact can KO Pikachu, and Body Slam can possibly Paralyze any of them. Pikachu may look weak because of his size and defense, but he's not. His speed is unbelievable. Thunderbolt can KO Blastoise, Fatally wound Charizard, and KO Lapras. His Volt Tackle is insane. It can KO Blastoise, Charizard, and Lapras if used correctly. If you prefer Thunder because of the recoil damage, that's fine too. You can also use Ampharos if you prefer. Feraligatr is a must. If you don't have Feraligatr, I'm sure Meganium or Typhlosion can do well, but you will need a water type. His Hydro Pump can KO Charizard, and his Superpower can easily handle his Snorlax. Ice Fang can KO or deal alot of damage to Venusaur as well. Last but not least Steelix. His incredibly high defense repels any physical attack aimed at him though his speed does lack some help. Stone Edge will KO Charizard and even possibly Venusaur. Iron Tail can probably fatally wound Lapras and maybe Snorlax. Earthquake can KO Venusaur, Pikachu, and can hurt Lapras and Blastoise a little.

If you need Steel Wing for Charizard or your own Pokemon, it's right outside of the house next to Mt. Silver. Clair will give you Dragon Pulse for beating her gym. If you want Counter, then find a Slakoth on Route 25 and level it up until it learns Counter then breed it with a Rhyhorn at the day-care (make sure the Rhyhorn is a female). Baby Rhyhorn should learn Counter, and then breed that with your Charmander/Charmeleon/Charizard(Baby Rhyhorn must be male). If you want Thunder Punch for Dragonite, you will need a heart scale. Go to the Move Rememberer in Blackthorn city and it should be in Dragonite's move list. The old lady sitting by the table in that same house with the Move Rememberer will teach it Draco Meteor if you two (You and Dragonite) have a strong bond. If you want a Volt Tackle Pikachu then you will need to catch a Pikachu in Viridian Forest that has a light ball. Breed the Pikachu holding the light ball with a normal Pikachu and the offspring should learn Volt Tackle when hatched. If you want Iron tail then you need to keep the TM that was given to you or you need to find a Smeargle. Use Smeargle when fighting a wild Onix or Steelix and try to time Sketch correctly after they use Iron Tail. If done correctly, Smeargle will Sketch out Iron Tail and learn it as a new move. Then breed Pikachu (which must be female) and Smeargle (Which must be male) and the offspring should know Iron Tail. If you want both moves (Iron Tail and Volt Tackle), take the Pikachu that knows Iron Tail and give it the light ball. Breed it with another Pikachu and the offspring should learn both moves. That's pretty much it for moves. If you want a Steelix, go to Cliff Cave and be patient. It's only a 10% chance of finding a wild one, so it's going to take some time.

When I was training my pokemon, I was training them individually and I would usually level one up 30 levels, and then train another one. I stocked up on Carbos, Calcium, Zinc, Protein and Iron so if one of my Pokemon needed extra base points, I would use them. I'm an EV trainer, so I don't particularly like using Rare Candies, but it is a faster way of leveling up your pokemon, so if you want, you can use some of them (P.S. If you use too many Rare Candies on your pokemon, it will grow weaker than the average pokemon.) If you need a good place to train, go to Mt. Silver or Victory Road. Each of the Pokemon give you anywhere from 600 to 2000 exp. I would recommend catching a Chansey because they can sometimes carry lucky eggs. Finding one is difficult and I believe they can only be found on Route 15. It's only a 1% chance of finding one, but if you do and it's carrying a lucky egg, then it's your lucky day. The Lucky Egg multiplies the amount of experience you get by almost 3x. I would carry some ultra balls before I go looking for a Chansey because they can be hard to catch.

Trust me, it's not easy training your pokemon without cheating or trading, but I did it and look at my team, it's unstoppable. If you want to copy my team or model your own after mine, then so be it. You'll see what I'm talking about. If you want a good team than it will take a whole lot of time and effort as you can see. I hope my advice was a lot of help and If you need extra advice, go to serebii.net. It'll tell you everything and anything you need to know about Pokemon like where you can find a certain item or where you can find a certain Pokemon. It was a lot of help for me.Anyways, good luck with your training and discovering your perfect team. I will continue to experiment with new Pokemon Teams and new strategies for beating Red. Thanks -Bryan1996

Lapras-Kadabra Lvl 80

Snorlax-Hitmonchan Lvl 70

Lvl 67 Typhlosion
Flamethrower, Blast Burn, Cut, and Strength
Lvl 67 Feraligatr
Aqua Tail, Ice Fang, Bite, and Hydro Cannon
Lvl 67 Meganium
Magical Leaf, Hidden Power, Rock Smash, and Frenzy Plant
Lvl 89 Dragonite
Dragon Pulse, Thunder Wave, Protect, and Rock Climb (I like to breed in moves)
Lvl 90 Dugtrio
Sucker Punch, Magnitude, Dig, Hidden Power
Lvl 67 Poliwrath (I agree with KoolKat Pokemon-This one is useful)
Surf, Waterfall, Drain Punch, Hypnosis


My alternates are Mewtwo Lvl 80, Kyogre Lvl 79, and Hitmonchan Lvl 83.

Typhlosion's moves were Flamethrower, Eruption, Cut, and Return. My other Pokemon's purpose was simply to revive my Typhlosion. Note: Flamethrower used once on his pikachu from Lvl. 79-80 will be a one-hit-faint without a critical hit.
