    Question How did you make it past the first gym in yellow?

    In Pokemon Yellow, you are forced to have Pikachu as your starter. Unfortunately, the first gym is all Rock/Ground types, and Electric doesn't effect ground (not to mention that Ground is also super effective on Electric). So what did you do to get past Brock in Yellow version?

    I caught a caterpie, evolved it into a butterfree, and taught it psychic. That was pretty much my only hope.

    I caught a Nidoran and trained it until it learned Double Kick, then used it against him.

    Unfortunately Electric isn't weak on Rock, it doesn't affect Ground which Onix and Geodude are.

    I was dumb and as i remember i trained my pikachu to like level 20 it took like a week considering i only had level 3 pidgeys to kill and then i challenged Brock and i used tackle throughout the whole battle i should have caught a caterpie to evolve into a butterfree.

    I caught a Mankey in Route 22 at level 3 I think so that help in defeating Brock.

    I hated Yellow because of the hurdle in the first Gym. I remember fighting Brock with Pikachu, Butterfree, and Pidgey but losing since nothing I used really made a difference. I decided to just trade over a level 10 Poliwag from my friends Blue version and I beat Brock using that type advantage. I used to hate training so I never really tried to beat him on my own

    I caught a female Nidoran and just kept using it and Pikachu until I FINALLY beat him.

    It took forever. :/

    I remember taking ages to even kill the Geodude and by the time Onix came I only had a Pidgey of lvl 5 left or something.

    I just trained my Pikachu to lvl 11 and used quick attack all time.

    The easiest way to beat Brock in Yellow is to catch a Mankey in Route 22 and train it till it learns one of its fighting moves.

    Butterfree. Such a simple solution, although it was a ***** to train to evolve fully.

    The first time I played:
    After stocking up on a few potions (as many as i could afford), I had a lv 16 Pikachu, and lv 9 Pidgey, and a lv 7 Metapod.
    Sent in metapod for geodude, spammed harden, then spammed tackle. The metapod died.
    Next, spammed pidgey's gust. After a few potions, the geodude died.
    Brock sent out his Onix, I spammed sand attack, which was quite helpful. The Onix missed quite a few times, but that led to my Pidgey's death.
    Sent out my Pikachu, after using nearly all of my potions, it finally died from a quick attack. That took forever. ButIwas like, 4 at that time

    I caught a Caterpie and trained it to a Butterfree. I also trained a Nidoran-M and taught it Double Kick. Nidoran-M was mostly backup.

    I used Nidoran, Butterfree, Mankey, and Pikachu. All at level 17. I beat Geodude with Butterfree, but Onix fainted her. Then i sent out Nidoran and used Double kick, then i won Training isn't really that hard, even metapod takes forever to raise for some reason.

    Mankey+ Low Kick and Nidoran M and F with Double Kick, because I always overprepared for that gym.

    The first several runthroughs, I just over leveled my Pikachu. On the most recent try who knows how long back, I think I used a Butterfree. I never even thought about using Mankey. D:

    In previous files, I'd use the Nidoran - Double Kick Combo to beat Brock, but in my most recent file I decided to make it more challenging. None of my Pikachu's moves could hit Geodude or Onix, so I had Pikachu use Tail Whip/Growl (mainly Tail Whip), then Pidgey would use Quick Attack, and I won the Badge.

    I always used Mankey. This is the only point in any game where I catch a pokemon for battle that I plan on ditching right away. Normally I pick a team and stick with it.

    There are wild Mankeys by Gary's second battle location
    One lowkick equals 2 hits for Geodude and one for Onix
    Pretty easy

    It's a Forretress, what else needs to be said?
