    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?

    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.

    On one playthrough I remember getting a Typhlosion, Furret, Togetic, Ampharos, Heracross and an Umbreon again.

    I don't know about you guys but I always liked how GSC displayed final evolutions as the strongest and most powerful in there images, like you can tell because they are bigger, tougher, faster-looking but also quite bright and colorful too. I kind of missed the 2D Pokemon sprites looking back at it, now the 3D sprites feel too much all the same and don't display that same awesomeness of GSC nor does it of Battle Revolution. Funny story about the Umbreon though, it look me up to around Lv. 70 to evolve it. I thought this was quite odd because I remember evolving it around the Lv. 40s but 70? I thought to myself am I doing something wrong here? This was back when I had absolutely no clue how to evolve Umbreon and just thought he evolved by levels during the dark time. Heracross was a fun one, I recall catching it on the first time I've headbutted a tree, curious what comes out. As for Furret, remember how I said a lot of fully-evolved Pokemon looked bigger, tougher, faster-looking but also bright and colorful. Furret fit this image well if I recall, looked bigger, tougher and faster than Sentret but also vividly colorful through it's simple brown and white coloring. Can't say the same for the 3D Pokemon games unfortunately.

    Had a lot of good memories on my Silver version. Loved my Feraligatr, liked it so much that I wanted to have it breed with a Gyarados to get a Magikarp with teeth. (This was before I knew about egg types.) I also got my first shinies in that game, a shiny Pidgey that I raised into a Pidgeot eventually and a shiny Poliwag. Worked hard in that game and had a blast in it.

    Typhlosion lv 99 (would have been my first 100, but my games and GBA disappeared mysteriously one day)
    -Flamethrower, Strength, other moves
    -Was level 74 the first time it entered the League (yeah, didn't know what I was doing)
    -I didn't like Quilava when I was younger, so I kept it as a Cyndaquil until Level 34. Which also helped me easily defeat Whitney's Gym on the first try.

    Togetic (Hatchey):
    -Fly, Psychic, Metronome
    -Had a lot of kids that knew Psychic right off the bat
    -Managed to clone this one successfully

    Noctowl
    -Hypnosis, Nightmare
    -Nightmare remains one of my favorite moves to this day, as it was how I took down so many strong opponents

    Ho-oH
    -Fly, Sacred Fire


    I had others but I don't remember them anymore. I really wish I still had my old cartridge.

    I don't know why but I have a strange hunch you overleveled your Typhlosion somehow.

    My original Gold team:

    [​IMG] Typhlosion
    [​IMG] Dragonite
    [​IMG] Aerodactyl
    [​IMG] Raikou
    [​IMG] Suicune
    [​IMG] Lugia


    This team was very memorable for me. I remember Typhlosion getting me through much of the main game, Dragonite being able to OHKO Red's Snorlax with Hyper Beam, getting Aerodactyl after spending ages catching a Chansey to do the ingame trade for it, and having a LOT of trouble catching the legendaries.

    I played the Gold version, the one which introduced me into Pokémon.

    - Meganium
    - Pidgeot
    - Misdreavus
    - Donphan
    - Houndoom
    - Kingdra

    Words can't explain how bad I was with the type compatibilies back then.
    Also, I got stuck in many parts of the adventure... A few at the top of my head: the Farfetch'd's chase inside Ilex Forest, finding the watering can for Sudowoodo, discovering Morty's gym path, reaching the lighthouse's top, the icy pavement of Pryce's gym, etc...

    Team Crystal Rollout.

    Start out by making a new game, choose Cyndaquil, catch Bellsprout, Zubat, and Geodude before even fighting Falkner, catch Slowpoke at the Splowpoke Well (Before Bugsy), then get Eevee from Bill later on (Before Morty). I had help back then with trading so I could get Golem. Otherwise, use Onix.

    I love this team because it gives you a valid set of very strong Pokemon with a variant of coverage, HM use, and most importantly, the speed of completion.

    This isn't new by any means, but it is my most favorite way to play the game. I actually did a playthrough of Crystal last year and catch a shiny Zubat to add to the team, so I had a pink Crobat. Fun stuff.

    My Silver team was: Typhlosion, Skarmory, Raichu, Scyther, Quagsire and Lugia. I always planned to evolve Scyther but I never met anyone to trade with so I could never get Scizor. :(
