Yes, Elite 4 + Champion as well as Red. Sorry, should've put that.

You mean Electabuzz? Is Typhlosion not all that good a fire Pokemon then? I mean, I know he doesn't have great moves right now, but I'm intending to train this team right up.

And ho-oh is damn hard to get it Crystal - you've got to catch all the legendary dogs. >_<

Mabye I'll trade him over from another version.

Any other suggestions from anyone else?

If you've got Silver, get a Lv. 40 Lugia from there so it knows Aeroblast.

I'm going to buy Silver today (along with Red) so I will try and trade over the Lugia when I get him. :)

Changes are in bold above.You need to level your team up to about 60-70 before facing Red.You have a big Water/Ice weakness.I would recommend to replace Lugia with Stamie.Starmie with Ice Beam,Thunderbolt,Surf,Recover.

Typhlosion is better then Ho-Oh.With the moveset I got post there,its a good sweeper.

Wow, thanks! I ordered Silver today, which should arrive soon, so I'll trade over the Lugia from that, and get Ho-oh from it too

(Crystal Lugia can't learn Aeroblast and Ho-oh is tough to get in Crystal).

No problem.Yeah you would be better off to get a Lugia in your Silver version so you can use Aeroblast if your going to use Lugia.
