Please rate and offer advice - Leaf Green GenIII
Below is the combination of the team I am putting together for getting through leaf green for the first time. As you can see I have the ability to trade between my fire red and leaf green emulator games.
I have done a fair bit of looking around however I am finding it difficult to get my head around all the latest changes and how best to plan out my abilities/moves for the below team makeup. I am also extremely happy to take advice on what to replace when and why.
I realise having the HM’s in my makeup absolutely ruins the team from a competitive nature, but please consider that I am levelling up and currently moving through the game. I just got to Saffron city and have 4 badges currently. I intend on using a Nidoqueen as my HM Pokémon and move all those moves onto her unless I level up my fire red game to get a Psyduck.
Anyway without further ado below is my currently planned team for a first run through. With their current skillset and some of the ones I know that I should be changing to.
Charizard lvl 36
Wing Attack – Replace with Hyper beam?
Fly – Eventually replace with Strength?
Metal Claw – Replace with Dragon Claw
Ivysaur lvl 29
Cut - Eventually replacing with Sunny day?
Vine whip – Replacing with Solar beam
Wartortle lvl 28 – Replace with Lapras?
Water gun – Replace with Hydro Pump?
Rapid Spin – Replace with Ice beam?
Pikachu lvl 28 (When to evolve into riachu?)
Shock wave – Should I replace this with Thunderwave on island 2? Or relevel a Pikachu?
Thunder shock - Replace with Brick Break?
Kadabra lvl 30 – When is the best time to evolve him? Or do I run 3x Elemental Punch and Psychic?
Teleport - Replace with Shadowball?
Confusion - Should I replace this with Recover on island 2? Or relevel a Kadabra?
Graveler lvl 28 – When is the best time to evolve him?
Manitude – Replace with a fighting type move?
Rock Throw – Replace with earthquake?
With regards to Graveler I have a Nidorino that I got at a low lvl and he is sitting at lvl 25. I am confused about these two as to which one is better to take through and completes my team. I believe that the newer Rock/Dark Pokémon I can get later in the game is certainly going to be a better option once I get access to the GenIII Pokémon.
Anyway I realise that there is plenty missing holes in my skill choices, I just don’t know it all well enough yet. I haven’t played in like 10yrs, I’d love some advice on what skillset to use and of course advice on what Pokémon to build up to even if you see fit.
