After finding my old Red game with my old team still intact, I thought I might as well get it rated. Who knows, I might stumble upon someone who has some love left for his old Pokemon games.

Plenty of years ago I booked quite a few successes with this team on PBS, but some things must have changed, so new insights will be much appriciated. And yes, I know having a specialized team is not the best choice, but specialized teams make me special [Razz]

Jinx
-Lovely Kiss
-Seismic Toss
-Double team
-Rest

Pure evil defensiveness. Yes, I know this is an ice/psychic Pokemon, but last time I checked ice was frozen water.

Lapras
-Bodyslam
-Confuse Ray
-Icebeam
-Surf

Just trying to cause some status effects in plenty of turns, thanks to it's staying power. Also a good defense against grass Pokemon.

Starmie
-Psychic
-Thunderbolt
-Recover
-Thunderwave

One of the problems with water teams is it's ineffectiveness against other water Pokemon. Starmie solved a bit of this problem, but though it is annoying, it is not good at taking care of things fast. Advice is much wanted.

Vaporeon
-Haze
-Surf
-Icebeam
-Bodyslam

Not as defensive as one would expect of a Vaporeon and I don't really know why. I guess I have forgotten.

Slowbro
-Psychic
-Amnesia
-Rest
-Thunderwave

It almost like a Tobybro (a term that probably isn't very common these days), those good old days. I prefer psychic over surf, because of it special lowering qualities. And because psychic is all powerfull in RGB, of course.

Gyarados
-Fireblast
-Bodyslam
-Surf
-Icebeam

My sweeper and other offense against grass pokemon.

Jynx, as you know, is a great starter. I dunno alot about double-resting, since I don't care for it, but can she pull it off? 168 defense.. :S

T-bolt over Surf, Blizzard over IB

Blizzard over Psychic. I know it might be annoying not to have a STAB-move, but.. :S

If FE works properly where you play, put it over BS... otherwise, go with sand-attack, I guess

Surf > Psychic, due to PP-reasons

Gyarados
-Fireblast
-Bodyslam
-Surf
-Icebeam

I dunno much about this guy.. t-bolt over FB, blizz over IB?

Overall, milk >>>> water

Yea..I'm still debating having Fire Blast on Gyarados as well. If it's solely for Grasses, Blizzard does the job better. I'd say either T-Bolt or maybe even Hyper Beam over Fire Blast.

I had forgotten about the pros of blizzard over icebeam, thanks for the reminder.

As for replacing fireblast with blizzard, that is not a bad idea. As I remember it blizzard has higher accuracy.

As for changing my slowbro into a real Tobybro, I don't know. PP has never been an issue so far and was able to take out pokemon like Alakazam thanks to the stat lowering properties of psychic.

And as for Jinx double teaming, lovely kiss is a very reliable move and most players will wait a turn or two before switching out their sleeping pokemon. When you get two double teams in, you almost perfectly save.
