How to beat the elite four! hints and tips for Pokemon LeafGreen

How to beat the elite four!


LEADER: Lorelei
Pokemon TYPE: Ice
Pokemon: Dewgong lv. 52 ; Slowbro lv. 52 ; Lapras lv. 54 ; Cloyster lv. 51 ; Jynx lv. 54
HOW TO WIN: Zapdos is the Pokemon to use here. Use thunder on Dewgong, thunder on slowbro, thunderbolt twice on Lapras, thunder on Cloyster, then switch to Moltres (or Charizard if you have him) and use flamethrower on Jynx. When you win, you get a little over $10,000 for winning. Then move on to Bruno after you do necessary healing, switching etc. Switch your leader to Dragonite then head on to Bruno's room.

Pokemon TYPE: Rock/Fighting
Pokemon: Onix lv. 51 ; Hitmonchan lv. 53 ; Hitmonlee lv. 53 ; Machamp lv. 56 ; Onix lv. 54
HOW TO WIN: Using your Dragonite, surf on both onixes, they will go down in 1 shot. Use wing attack on the remaining 3 pokemon. Machamp will require 2 wing attacks. You will get your money after defeating Bruno. Use necessary potions and put Alakazam in the leader slot.

LEADER: Agatha
Pokemon TYPE: Ghost/Poison
Pokemon: Gengar lv. 54 ; Golbat lv. 54 ; Arbok lv. 56 ; Gengar lv. 58 ; Haunter lv. 53
HOW TO WIN: Use psychic on the Gengars and Haunter. Don't even mess around with the Golbat and Arbok. Use Zapdos's thunder on them to kill them in one shot. They can poison you and that's not good at all. Use necessary potions and switch your leader to Zapdos.

Pokemon TYPE: Dragon
Pokemon: Gyrados lv. 56 ; Aerodactyl lv. 58 ; Dragonair lv. 54 ; Dragonair lv. 54 ; Dragonite lv. 60
HOW TO WIN: This guy is hard. Kill his Gyrados in 1 shot with a thunder from Zapdos. Kill his Aerodactyl by using Kadabra/Alakazam's shadow ball until Aerodactyl is at about half life. Then use Psychic and he should be through. I don't know what to say about the Dragon types, but to use brute force and knock them down little by little. Don't use a fire type for the dragonairs because they know surf. But I suggest using a hyper beam when you get the Dragonite down to half life. You should be able to get by with thunderbolts and thunders on the Dragonairs. Lance will admit defeat and almost crown you Pokemon League Champion. Then he mentions that someone did it before you and his name is GARY! You're not done yet, you have one more challenge. Use potions as needed and prepare yourself for the hardest battle yet.

Pokemon TYPE: All/Against you
Pokemon: Pidgeot lv. 61 ; Rhydon lv. 61 ; Alakazam lv. 59 ;
IF YOU HAVE A CHARIZARD: Blastoise lv. 65 ; Exeggutor lv. 63 ; Arcanine lv. 61
IF YOU HAVE A BLASTOISE: Venusaur lv. 65 ; Gyrados lv. 61 ; Arcanine lv. 63
IF YOU HAVE A VENUSAUR: Charizard lv. 65 ; Gyrados lv. 63 ; Exeggutor lv. 63
HOW TO WIN: Thunder his Pidgeot, Surf his Rhydon, Flamethrower his Alakazam. Here's where your birds take a huge role. If you have a Venusaur, send out either Dragonite or Articuno and water down that Charizard. If you have a Blastoise, get out your Moltres and use the most powerful fire attack you have on the Venusaur. If you have a Charizard, get out your Zapdos and use thunder on the Blastose. Use a fire attack on Exeggutor and your special attack on Arcanine after it's life is below 3/4.

The first time I beat the Elite Four I used Charizard, Jynx, Dragonair, Gyarados, Victreebel, and...Lapras, I think. But after a lot of training and more adventuring, my Lv. 100 Mewtwo was able to beat it all by itself. It knows Confusion, Psychic, Ice Beam, and Flamethrower. So, after beating the Elite Four once, when you get Mewtwo just teach it Ice Beam and Flamethrower (you can also replace Ice Beam with Thunderbolt, but it's easier to defeat Tyranitar if Charizard was your starter pokemon with Ice Beam), level it up a bit and you'll have no problem beating the Elite Four however many times you plan to do it.

It depends on what moves it knows and what moves you choose to use.

Dragon is afraid of ice. I used Dewgong's blizzard twice and Dragonite a super effective way.

I have the zaptos-52, moltres-51, articuno-50, charzard-71, hitmonpee-34 and gyarados-32 what is the best way to level them up enough to beat the elite four?

True, but there are plenty of other Pokemon who you can catch and train that would have a better chance against your rival's starter. Say you chose Bulbasaur, he would obviously choose Charmander. All you need to do is to catch a water type, like Poliwrath or Gyaradose (when they evolve)

And I'm not saying that Blastoise isn't a good choice, he is a beast when used properly, so I see where you're coming from (:

Dudes, the best starter for leaf green is Blastoise.
Because even if your rival choses Venusaur, Blastoise can learn Ice Beam and it can defeat Venusaur easily.

I would recommend evolving Pigeotto into Pigeot, and Kadabra into Alakazam. As for Zapdos, he's not aa necessity, if you can find another strong Electric type, he would work just as well. And if you would post the move sets of those three Pokemon, I'll tell you whether they're good or not.
