starter type hint for Pokemon FireRed

starter type

Here a good reasons for starter chosing

Charmander:if you chose charmander the first two gyms will be harder since charmander is fire type and the first gym is rock and the second is water charmanders biggest weaknesses but the rest of the gym's are easy

Bulbasaur:I would pick bulbasaur because like I said the first two gym's are rock and water those are weak against bulbasaur but on the 7th gym is fire type but by the time you get to the 7th gym you have to have a water type by then just to get to the island

Squirle:Squirtle would be good for the first gym then tie at the second then it's tough at the 3rd gym since your going up against raichu a lightning type

There are all my tips for starter Pokemon and please rate thanks

All of you guys forget that Charmander can learn METAL CLAW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!AGAINST BROCK..........the second gym you can get an oddish near the nugget bridge

Charmander, beacuse youll encounter bug pokemon all over viridian forest and charmander would come in handy.

Try not to worry to much about gyms after the 3rd, because by then you would have caught enough to counter them. But I do agree with the guy who said to catch a Mankey, just in case you need the extra help with Brock

Charmander or squirtle will be good because chamander learns metal claw at lv13 and squrtle learns better moves if u fight all the trainers and win

charmander is not that strong .squirtle is the most effective.he can learn many attack e.g.ground type moves.w/c is effective against electric pokemon.and it has a very high defense.

If you choose Charmander(I choose it because there are not much good firetypes) it's easier to beat Brock if you catch Mankey, he'll learn Low Kick at lv7 which is supereffective vs Geodude and especially Onix. And for 2nd gym, just catch Bellsprout.

If you choose Charmander, it's actually pretty easy to defeat all the gyms, because you should always catch different type pokemons so that they match up.
