    As the title says. What Pokemon Teams did you have on your Gen 1 playthroughs? Any great memories? Any Pokemon that in particular stood out?

    Red's Team happily and victoriously coming out of Cerulean Cave...

    It's funny you'd post a picture of Red, because I seem to recall taking direct influence from him in my most fun playthrough of the original games (Red) to trade them over to Silver.

    I had a Pikachu, Primeape and a Poliwrath, for sure I recall. And I only used those six, which made the whole experience a bit more... what's the word... memorable.

    Thought it was a fitting image since it represents a lot of players happy moments of finally defeating a powerful opponent with their team of Pokemon they captured throughout the entire journey.

    Ash's original team because I was clearly a creative child

    I personally played Gen. I after Gen. II but I do still remember what my Team was on Red: Venusaur, Butterfree, Wigglytuff, Lapras, Hitmonchan and Flareon.

    The majority of my memories are actually the laughs about the sprites.

    LanceAndMissingNo. Ow! That's tragic!

    In Gen I, I make a team with those facts:

    >I choose Bulbasaur from starter (almost ever it's Bulbasaur)
    > I catch a wild Pokémon of the first routes (Rattata, Pidgey...) to train him along the adventure. /// Or I do the Trainer Escape Glitch in the Veridian City. Usually, I get Gengar or Slowbro.
    >Before start a battle with Surge, I catch a Dugtrio, Lv 30 barely.
    >I slept Snorlax to catch him.
    >This slot will be reserved for a Legendary Bird, like Articuno or Zapdos. Moltres it's not useful for the League.

    It was terrible lol

    Lvl 75+ Pikachu and I think the next strongest was Ivysaur or Machamp (Ricky) and I don't even remember the rest of them (yeah the furthest I actually got in that game was beating Lance and no more)

    I had most of my teams under-leveled back in Gen I except for my Starters like Lizardon and Kamex in Red and Blue, which always managed to get to Level 100 since I used them the most. I was just bad at balancing my team as a whole.

    Kamex. Now that's a name I haven't heard in a while... during childhood, in a lot of my playthroughs, Dragonite was always a must-have. I barely remember how things went down in my VC Gen 1 playthrough on my first try. The team consisted of...

    And as of now, they've been transferred to USUM and are at a Lv. 100 with full IVs thanks to hyper training.

    My gen 1 teams were pretty odd considering what Pokemon are generally popular in this region. Of course, I do use some of the popular bunch though.

    Team 1:

    Team 2:

    Team 3:

    As a bonus, my two Let's Go teams were:

    LG 1:

    Then I did a SBQ for my second playthrough and my final 6 members were:

    I had a Tentacruel and Golem but ended up boxing them since they didn't put in as much work as my other members. Mostly bc the others had 4IVs due to the shiny method and these two were from chains of a differing Pokemon.(Staryu for Tentacruel and Machop for Golem)

    I played Yellow via Virtual Console...early last year? Anyway, the BIG thing that stuck out to me was just how GOOD Mr. Mime was. No Special stat split, psychic being god tier, not evolving meaning it has better stats overall, and it can only be a traded Pokemon, meaning it will always get an EXP bonus = powerhouse of my team. I also naturally used Pikachu, Venusaur, Blastoise, and Charizard, because you're legally obligated to when playing Yellow. I also used Nidoqueen, because Nidoran F can learn Double Kick super early and that's good for going up against Brock when all you have is Pikachu, Butterfree, Pidgey, and Rattata.

    From what I recall, I used Jolteon, Kabutops, Venusaur, Hitmonlee definitely. I probably used one of the legendary birds, most likely Moltres or Zapdos. I think I used Nidoking or Nidoqueen, probably a Snorlax too. It's been so long, so I can't remember exactly. I definitely used a Lapras at some point, and I know I used a Wigglytuff in Leaf Green / Fire Red.

    My original team was Charizard, Snorlax, Hitmonlee, Vaporean, Persian, and Ninetales. I had a Nidoqueen but I traded her to Gold and taught her Dynamic Punch and was unable to trade her back.

    My original team in Pokemon Red was Venusaur, Pidgeot, Gyarados, Arcanine, Jolteon, and Scyther. Young me made a pretty solid team without really any knowledge of the game back in '98.

    After playing through the games again, this team is still really fun to use and one of my favorite overall first playthrough teams.

    I had to take a look at the sprite sheet to help me remember the very first team with which I finished the game. So if I recall correctly, it was this one:

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Yes, there are 7, but unfortunately I can't remember which one did I ditch. I think it was Beedrill, but I can't say for sure.

    I used Charizard, Pidgeot, Gengar, Jolteon, Dewgong, and Primeape in Blue version. I didn't think much of my team back then and I just kinda stuck with Pokemon that I liked.

    Yellow was the version I played with for Generation I.
    I remember myself putting as soon as possible that starter Pikachu in the Pokémon box, because I knew it wouldn't have been able to evolve.

    - Venusaur
    - Starmie
    - Ninetales
    - Electabuzz
    - Primeape
    - Dragonite

    Yeah. Mankey was my starter.
