Pokemon Leaf Green help!

Discussion in '3rd Gen RMT' started by superyellowduck, May 30, 2013.

    So I have four team members in Leaf Green. I know that I will end up with a Dragonite - probably anyway. My problem is that I cannot use egg moves since breeding isn't available till after E4. Also, I can't trade to Emerald to give Alakazam the Elemental punches - unless I was to do this by other means... Anyway, my team are as follows:


    Razor Lead
    Sludge Bomb
    Sleep Powder


    Ice Beam
    Confuse Ray
    Body Slam


    Dragon Claw
    Steel Wing


    Calm Mind
    Shock Wave

    I think your team is just as... Fine? Sure, you can't breed, but you can go through E4.

    Dragon Claw
    Rock Slide
    This will leave you with a neutral coverage. You do know how to work with this right? EQ+RS will leave you with a neutral coverage, so does Flamethrower+DC+EQ. This way you can past through E4 'like a breeze'.

    Thunder Bolt
    Ice Beam
    Again, coverage. Everything in-game involves coverage. The so know Bolt Beam is suggested to Lapras. Since its SpAtk isn't spectacular, Lapras needs to hit most things for, at least, neutral damage, and Bolt Beam + Return pretty much allows that. Surf and Ice Beam also are STAB, so you will deal reasonably good damage. It would be better if you had a Starmie, though, but you can go with Lapras.

    That's all folk, good luck!

    I won't even loose my time explaining that Ice/Fire/Eletric moves are all special attacks in this gen, so it'll use his SpAtk nor his Atk stat. Oh wait, I've explained...(?)

    You could try a Nidoking or Heracross for more coverage.

    Swords Dance
    Brick Break
    Rock Slide

    I haven't really made a 3rd Gen rate in a while, so bear with me.

    Heracross can only be obtained after beating the Elite Four, and Nidoking dosen't have the most workable movepool, iirc.

    I'd keep Body Slam on Lapras; sure it has 17 less BP, assuming max happiness, but the Paraylsis can be useful so that Lapras takes less hits and kills stuff faster.

    You seem a bit Rock weak, and you don't have any resists right now. How about Machamp? iirc standard set is Bulk Up / Brick Break / Rock Slide / Earthquake. Though, then you would have to replace some of Charizard's moves, but tbh Brick Break can be used instead of Rock Slide.

    Sorry, forgot about that.

    If your lapras has water absorb as its ability you could use a rhydon

    Rockhead (no recoil)
    -Rock Blast
    -Double Edge

    You'll have to level grind a little bit for this and the double edge move tutor is found at the end of Victory Road.

    Hope this helps.
