    As the title says. What Pokemon Teams did you have on your Gen 2 playthroughs? Any great memories? Any Pokemon that in particular stood out?

    Untold stories of hundreds, maybe thousands of Pokemon Trainers, both new and experienced, sending their trained teams of trusted Pokemon to deal with the berserking Tower duo.

    Well, I've only played Crystal, so my final team was Feraligatr, Fearow, Lanturn, Arcanine, Espeon and Nidoking. I remember spending days to make Eevee happy enough to evolve, and I also didn't want him to evolve too early because I wanted him to know Bite.

    Coming from Pokémon Red, I always made a point of only using 'new' Pokémon when playing GSC. As in, not using any of the original 151. It's something that stuck to this day. At the time, I didn't know some of the 'new' Pokémon could only be found in Kanto...

    This is the team I use the most when I replay the games:

    But my very first team, if memory serves, was: Feraligatr, Noctowl, Ledian, Quagsire, Umbreon and Lugia. So, it was basically the same.

    I don't remember my original Gold team because the game is just that bad but I do remember having a Typhlosion and Quagsire

    Typhlosion is a favorite. I thought Flame Wheel was the coolest thing back as a kid.

    I thought Typhlosion was the "lesser evil" of the 3 but I did love it moveset.

    Silver was my first ever Pokémon game and everything about it is a great remembrance. My team consisted of Meganium, Miltank, Lanturn, Xatu, Houndoom and Heracross.

    I recall using all three Gen II Starters in Gold version, as well as Entei, Lugia, and Mewtwo. I had to trade for most of them, which in itself was a memorable experience.

    I believe on my first playthrough as a kid, I had Pokemon Crystal. The Pokemon I caught I believe was Feraligatr, Onix, Haunter, Growlithe, Electrode, Scyther, Sudowoodo, Skarmory, a red shiny Golbat, a red shiny Gyarados, Mantine, Donphan, Poliwhirl, Quagsire and Umbreon.

    I can't really remember which Pokemon I focused on except for Feraligatr but I recall catching a lot of Pokemon that couldn't evolve yet because I didn't have a trade link cable or that evolutionary stones weren't available at the time. Pokemon Crystal Version was my first Pokemon Main Series game actually so I was probably like six or seven at the time and I thought Steel Type were just the coolest. Funny thing is I never actually beat the game at the time, I was stuck after the 8th Gym Leader having no clue what to do afterwards lol, not realizing there was an entire new region to explore next to Johto. Although Feraligatr was definitely a memorable Pokemon, I can still remember his colorful evolution animation. Scyther was a Pokemon hard to catch only to find out I couldn't evolve it to Scizor lol because of no trade cable. Sudowoodo was a fun surprise and Skarmory was quite unexpected, finding it after the 8th gym. However a really unexpected counter was that I found a red shiny Golbat in Mt. Mortar.

    I had Gold but I misplaced it along with my Gameboy Advance pretty early on. I didn’t get to far, but I know I had Chikarita as my starter. I found my game again several years later and tried to play it again. I don’t think I’ve ever beaten the Elite Four.

    That reminds me of the time on my first playthrough that I not only didn't beat the Elite Four, I had no clue there was another region on the other side of Johto.

    Pokémon Gold Team:

    Greatest memories:
    Using Totodile, my favourite starter ever;
    The numerous trades and battles with friends;
    My friends always telling me I'm the only person in the world who uses Sunflora. They did obsess me a lot with this story back then, but this is a very funny memory;
    Getting stuck in so many parts of the Johto journey.
