    Default What level should my team be by the Cerulean Gym?

    I am playing pokemon blue, and am ready to challenge the Cerulean gym. I have a Charmeleon, a Pikachu, and a Mew. Their levels are:

    25 (Charmeleon)
    22 (Pikachu)
    11 (Mew)

    I know they are probably already a little high leveled, (with the exception of mew: still need to grind him a bit more) but I want some advice. I know that my Charmeleon is practically useless in this fight, and about 90% of the battle is riding on Pikachu, plus a little bit of Mew action. What level do you think they should all at least be before I challenge Misty?

    Thanks!

    If you just have an Electric move on Pikachu, that should be more or less enough to beat her in your current state. You can train Mew a little further if you want to as a security, but I think you will be just fine with what you have.

    Thank you! But I only have Thundershock. Is that enough? If not, At what level does he get Thunderbolt?

    Sorry about the lame questions. It's part of a challenge I'm doing. I can only get info directly from other people, not sites like Bulbapedia.

    It only learns Thunderbolt in Yellow Version iirc. What you might find more useful is going north of Nugget bridge and capturing a grass Pokemon there since it will come in handy for the next two gyms.

    The responses you've gotten so far are definitely good, but I'll add one more suggestion just because Mew is my favorite pokémon hands down. Your Mew is the strongest pokémon you have on your team right now... and Mew can learn anything. I think you'd be just fine if you taught Mew something useful for the gym and trained her up a bit. Mew is by far the most versatile pokémon in the 1st gen. games. Take advantage of how great she is.

    The Pikachu should breeze through it alone

    I don't think it'll like a Bubblebeam to the face, so I'd keep Mew (+- Lv. 20) and/or a Grass Pokémon (preferably at the level where they become second-stage Pokémon; look it up on Bulbapedia) as a backup.
    Vaporeon's a beast.
