This. This so much. I was such a stupid kid, I ended up beating her by sheer force, because of cyndaquils whole stats shift thing, I suppose.And the fat that Cyndaquil was the only pokemon I bothered to raise, at all, really. That being said, I remember the rest of the game being easy enough.

Whole nother story when the remakes came out.

I was ready.
