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

    When I was kid, I used Mankey like the Players Guide said(I was 10 so Pokemon was a hard game for me).

    Now that I'm older and really know how to play the game, I used male Nidoran with it's Double Kick because Nidoking fits my team's elemental theme.

    A real gamer is one that plays for fun and enjoys a decent story.

    I don't know if I posted in this thread.

    I trained my Nidoran, Pikachu, Pidgeotto, and Butterfree up to level 25. Yes, it was a pain to do it while they are dealing with low level wild Pokemon. I used Nidoran's double kick to win my first badge.

    I have horrible nightmares of my Pidgey using Quick Attack in a futile attempt to take down Onix... I was young at the time.

    But then I saw sense; I caught and trained a Mankey.

    Like everyone says... Mankey did the job well.

    I used Butterfree. I also caught one of each kind of pokemon possible at that time to back it up.

    I did a Pikachu solo challenge in yellow. I trained pikachu up until it learned double team and them spammed tackle. Took me a while, but Pikachu didn't get that much damage.

    I caught a Nidoran (I think) and just finished the Gym with that.

    I got the game yesterday and caught a caterpie, then trained until it was a butterfree then spammed confusion. But when Brock's onix used bide I used confusion one more time, then switched out for a pidgey and used it as a sacrifice. It was pretty easy.

    I didn't have Yellow, but my cousin did. She got stuck on the first gym, and asked me to help. This was years after she got the game; I'd read about using Butterfree on the internet. I tried that, but it was hard. I don't rember exactly how I did it; there was no special strategy. It was a team effort which required every Pokemon. Pikachu wound up bearing the brunt of the attack simply becaust it had more hit-points. I had to buy poitions, if I remember correctly.

    Later I got a copy of Yellow, but it wouldn't save. Once I got as far as Mt. Moon; I got past Brock using the same desperate methods.

    I did things the hard way.... Raised Pikachu up to Level 20 so it could learn Slam. Took forever...
    Fortunately through my second playthrough onwards, I discovered Mankey.

    Mankey. I'd keep it around until I needed the space for something else. He helps for Gary's Eevee aswell.

    I just trained Mankey up until it learned low kick and nidoran until it learned double kick, ended up forgetting to use nidoran after Mankey fainted (three crits -.-) and used Lv 13 pikachu with quick attack until Onix fell.
