    Im looking to restart my Fire Red and am trying to plan out a team. Help please?

    P.S. I will be starting out with BULBASAUR and will be getting Growlithe later. Also, no legendaries.

    I've been wondering this, too.
    I have this so far

    OT: If anything you might wanna get some kind of electirc type to get rid of those flying types, and a water to get rid of the fire, then usually a sweeper like gengar,tank like Snorlax (Don't know if thats considered 'Legendary")

    There's no "best" team. Personally, I plan on using Venusaur, Starmie (or in your case, since you're using FireRed, Cloyster), Ninetales (which you can swap for Arcanine), Snorlax, Dragonite, and Dodrio.

    The most recent team I used was -

    --- These are the main Pokemon I was rotating with throughout my journey..

    But in general I would advise Blastoise, Dragonite, Nidoqueen/king, Magmar, Aerodactyl, Lapras - there's so much to use in this game, just pick something that works synergetically :]

    I tired to suggest some unique but still good Pokes. Probably "UU" for most of them.

    Greatemboar The White Warrior

    Venusaur Arcanine Pidegot Lapras Snorlax (key members and first 2 can be changed depending on your starter) then you have your free choice which could be Electabuzz Ditto a Hitmon or anything

    this is a link to a guide I made on another forum 0_o

    It depends on what you are going for... Fastest clear time? Best meta-game pokemon? My favorite is Bulbasaur, but in game, Charmander is better, and even if I am going to go for the best meta-game pokemon, I would still have to recommend Charmander, because of Suicune. If you are bent on a no-legendary, Bulbasaur run, I would end up with:
    Nidoking (higher offensive stats than Nidoqueen)
    Tentacruel/Lapras/Starmie (LeafGreen only)
    Arcanine (Rapidash if playing LeafGreen)
    Alakazam/Mr. Mime (recover vs. screens)
    Dragonite/Tyranitar (late-game heavy hitters)
  13. Infernape4ever

    Infernape4ever Experianced Trainer

    in start select charmander(starter, can defeat brock as charmeleon metal claw-evolve him to charizard), pidgey(evolve him to pidgeot), pikachu(i caught him in viridian forest accidentally he apeared, made him evolve in raichu on lvl 56), nidoran(male,evolve him to nidoking),abra(evolve him to kadabra at 36lvl believe me it had inaf power to wipe out saffron city gym) and the last one is magikarp(water pokemon, evolve him to geridos-(start a battle with him against some pokemon or trainer but quickly change it to someone else to gain experiance)-------> that pokemon i used to conquer elite 4 and pokemon league and catch mewtwo, also try to catch as much as pokemon as you can (they will come to use)

    My FireRed team is Charizard, Primeape, Arbok, Gyarados, Rhydon, Electabuzz. The fact that there was no physical/special split yet hurt Gyarados, but it's still great and its Hyper Beam wrecks everything. Arbok's stats are kind of mediocre but it has decent attack and it can be good if you invest the right TMs into it (Oh, how I wish reusable TMs were around in this game, so many members of my team could have used Earthquake). I was surprised how good Electabuzz was and it made me wonder why they gave it an evolution in the next generation, but I guess they just did that to make it more usable in Gen IV because of the physical/special split and new moves that were introduced. Charizard and Primeape wreck almost everything, and Rhydon you have to put in the right situations, but when you do, nothing stands in its way. Also, how unnecessary was Rhyperior? It's the exact same thing as Rhydon. It got minor boosts in every stat except speed, but it's still basically the same thing.

    You should make a team with the Elite Four and Champion in mind, and pick Pokemon which are both strong enough, and learn SE moves without having to use one-off TMs.

    These are the E4 teams:

    Lorelei - supposed to be Ice but in practice has a lot of part water types. Weak to Electric, fighting.

    Bruno - Fighting and rock/ground. Weak to psychic, water, grass, flying.

    Agatha: Poison/ghost. Weak to psychic and dark.

    Lance: Dragon, weak to Ice and dragon.

    Gary: Various.

    These are some recommended Pokemon:

    Lapras: Has surf and Ice beam, good against Bruno and Lance. (Vaporeon functions similarly).

    Kadabra: Psychic type, good against Bruno and Agatha but can't take any Shadow Balls.

    Jolteon: Has thunderbolt, and double kick which is good against Lorelei and some of Bruno's Pokemon. It also has Bite/Crunch which is good against Agatha.

    Clefable: Doesn't have very good level up moves, but can learn Thunderbolt, Shadow Ball, and Ice Beam from TMs which you can purchase from the Game Corner (for a lot of in-game money).

    Starmie: Similiar to Clefable in that it can learn a lot of good purchasable TM moves: Thunderbolt, Psychic, Shadow ball, and can also learn Surf from the HM.

    Venusaur: Frenzy Plant,Sludge Bomb,Strengh,Razor Leaf
    Lapras:Blizzard,Surf,Perish Song,Hydro Pump
    Pikachu:Iron Tail,Thunder,Thunder bolt,Quick Attack
    My team maybe isn't very good.

    The team i recommend mostly is the following -

    Victreebel (It's movepool is terrible, but it's quite a decent Special Attacker. Quite good when you teach it Giga Drain.) Can replace with Exeggutor.
    Dragonite (OU, but a really good late-game hard hitter.)
    Nidoking / Clefable / Alakazam (Nidoking is a great early game Physical Attacker, Clefable doesn't really shine in it's stats but they are half-decent. But Clefable has a great movepool like most normal types. And Alakazam is really great Special Attacker in any point in the game. You can also switch this with Exeggutor.) You can also use Pidgeot.
    Pidgeot is my favourite Pokemon, it's Speed is good, and it can hit surprisingly hard with Fly because of it's decent attack and STAB.

    Well my team when I beat the Elite Four today was

    Chansey: Fire Blast|Softboiled|Egg Bomb|Thunderbolt. She can tank Lorelei's team.
    Dragonite: Sure|Outrage|Slam|Wing Attack - Wing attack and surf can kill Bruno's team easily.
    Raichu: Thundershock|Strength|Thubderbolt|Mega Punch - I used Raichu usually to finish off water or flying pokemon. Since my Raichu was lvl51, while Chansey was 69. And Dragonite was 62.
    Pidgeot*: Wing Attack| Gust|Agility|Fly - Used in the same matter as my Raichu. Just finished off whoever
    Alakazam:psybeam|Psychic|Flash|Trick (You can use a Kadabra, but you'll have too train it more than usual I guess)
    Marowak: Strength|Bonemerang|??? <Forgot, and replaced>|False Swipe - Okay I didn't use him to battle. He was just in case I needed to revive someone.
