Think back to the time when we were all newbies. The time when we had Ash's pokemon. Back to the time when Pikachu was great and Mewtwo was on every team. When Mewtwo had moves like Mega Punch and every one of them had Psychic, before the standards. The time when Slowbro's were considered weak and unpopular (Boy things have changed a lot since then ). So what was your FIRST team? Mine :laughs: was:

Charizard level 55
Slash
Strength
Flamethrower
Fire Spin

Pidgeotto level 20
Razor Wind
Sand-attack
Quick attack
Whirlwind

Spearow level 18
Fly
Take down
leer
Fury Attack

Farfetch'd level 21
Peck
Sand-attack
Cut
Body Slam

Nidorina level 17
Growl
Skull Bash
Double team
Thunderbolt

Lapras level 16
Water Gun
Surf
Sing
Toxic
Thank you Azure! If it where not for you I would have still been continuing my Newbie ways

Whoo boy. Good thing I re-started my game five months ago, or I'd be ashamed to post my team here (I posted this team on a UPN board before I came here, I used to be RocketKate).

Sandslash: Dig, Slash, Hyperbeam, Cut
Fearow: Fly, Drill Peck, Mirror Move, Agility
Vaporeon: Surf, Bubblebeam, Acid Armor, Mist
Raichu: Thundershock, Thunder, Quick Attack, Reflect
Alakazam: Psybeam, Psychic, Reflect, Recover
Articuno: Ice Beam, Blizzard, Mist, Agility

And although this isn't related to teams, I used to think, for some strange reason, that Eevee could learn Bubblebeam. I was so happy that my favorite Pokémon could learn such a cool attack that I e-mailed Pokémon of the Day Guy from pocket.ign.com and bragged about how powerful Eevee was even though it looked like a useless fuzz ball. Thank Goddish they didn't print it. Yeesh...I was a Goddish-awful newbie.

Har!

I have no recollection of my first team. Frankly, I was surprised I could get through Indigo Plateau. I had seen NO birds. I had had for a long while no idea how to get the last gym leader, since I couldn't get into Saffron (hey, the elevator didn't go all the way up!). Somehow I managed to raise a Dragonite, and the only two I remember clearly on my team was Venusaur, Muk (!) and Draggy. Draggy had Thunder, Surf, Strength and Fly (oy...) and Muk had stuff like Fire Blast, Mega Drain, Thunderbolt. I loved my Muk. He killed the E4, barely. Venusaur...well, I can only assume it was there, it might not ha' been. Heck, a few mere months ago my Moltreses had Fly and Peck and Fire Spin stuff! Just over last summer did I learn everything, learn about G/S, etc. And surprisingly I'm looked up to and sought after by lots of people to help with movesets (of which I learn my best from here ^_^). Crezzy...and no, I didn't have a Porygon on my team. I didn't know of such a critter. Took me a long while to find M2 and the Birds! Goodness knows I wouldn't go trying to BUY any. Chaa...

Oy.

Hehe... Boy, you sure brought back some good memories. I know my team sucked, but I still loved playing...

Blastoise -skull bash, hydro pump, water gun, bite
Zapdos -thunder, drill peck, fly, thunderschock (which I never used. "Paralysis? Hah!")
Articuno -blizzard, ice beam, peck, mist (nerver used. "Doesn't do any damage. Sucks!")
Vileplume -cut, sleep powder, poisonpowder, stun spore (Yes I switched Absorb for Cut, then evolved it before it even learnt Acid!)
Mewtwo -freshly caught and never trained at all
Some other pokémon I found good at the moment.

I actually beat a guy with this team, but it was all because my Articuno froze his Mewtwo! Hehe!

Heh. I think my first team went something along the lines of Vaporeon, Weezing, Alakazam, Venusaur, Rapidash and Zapdos. Which isn't THAT bad... until you look at the moves I had on them. ^_^;;

Good thing I can't remember all of them, I do remember that Vaporeon had 3 Water attacks, though. ¬_¬

I argued with Deranged that statistic afecting attacks where permanent, then Deranged found Azure Heights and countered with that, the 2 week long argument at GameFAQs ended up with my defeat, I was so ashamed that I beat myself up severly over the head multiple times with an ugly stick until I forggot any details of that dark-newbish period of my life...
...but I discovered stat bleeding by myself while others mocked me, I said that persians are good pokémon while everyone laughed at me, even Deranged, that was cool...

Wow, I was gonna start a topic on this myself today. Yesterday I was just clearing out a few overcrowded boxes on stadium when I found some of my old (crap) pokemon. I found my first Alakazam (psybeam over psychic, err...), and then it happened. I found my original first tourney team. Now, before I went, I had no intention in taking part at all (I only went to get Mew and I hadn't received confirmation of my place). I managed to get in via the reserve list even though my team was a completely random collection of rubbish.
Jolteon: t.wave, thunder, pin missile, double kick
Articuno: peck, fly, ice beam, blizzard
Gengar: night shade, hypnosis, dreameater, confuse ray
Dragonite: hyper beam, blizzard, thunder, flame blast,
Golem: Earthquake, strength, umm…
Exeggutor: toxic, leech seed, psychic, solar beam (the only halfway decent set)

The funny thing is, I actually got to the finals at the dome using this collection of jokers, even taking down some skilled players from this very board...
None of my stats were anywhere near max (Jolteon had about 307 hp).
I think that's why I love these one's so much. Even though they were criminally weak and badly thought out, they were my first winners and they performed when required. I now have a special n64 box dedicated just to these, my special cherished children. So umm... sentimental rant over with. Incidentally, with the more powerful pokemon that I played with at the dome, I lost miserably due to playing like a complete smack head. The moral, buggered if I can see it.

I think I'll post my second tourney team (yes, I was still a newbie even by the second tourney):

Blastoise
Earthquake
Hydro Pump
Surf
Blizzard

Mewtwo
Psychic
Substitute
Recover
Solar Beam

Jolteon
Thunder
Thunderbolt
Pin Missile
Hyper Beam

The strange thing was, it always ended up with me against another Mewtwo, 1v1. And every one of my 3 bouts finished in a draw due to time over. I still got all the badges though

A few months later a Mewtwo moveset come across my mind. It included Amnesia, Substitute, Recover... Yes, that's right. I invented Nintendo's GREP without any outside interference. How's that for a scary story? (I still shudder just thinking of it)

Charizard
- Fire Spin
- Strength
- Flamethrower
- Fire Blast

Articuno
- Ice Beam
- Blizzard
- Fly
- Mist (Later replaced by Substitute, only becuase I had bought the TM, and couldn't find a use for it)

Zapdos
- Thunder
- Thunderbolt
- Fly
- Light Screen

Mewtwo
- Psychic
- Reflect
- Recover
- Swift

Vileplume
- Cut
- Solarbeam
- Sleep Powder
- Petal Dance

I THINK....maybe Vaporeon
- Hydro Pump
- Surf
- Bubblebeam
- Water Gun

Back then, I decided the best Pokemon knew all the attacks that matched their element. I only used Thunderbolt because it was better than Thundershock, and only used Surf because I needed it. Oddly enough, I only lost with this team ONCE, when my cousin's Articuno used Blizzard and froze my Mewtwo.....his Mewtwo moved in and killed my remaining team......

Well, I know my first team members, but sadly I forget their movesets. I can't believe it was only Christmas of '99 that I got my first Pokemon Blue. My first ever Pokemon Hall of Fame team was: Raichu, Pidgeot, Venusaur, Vaporeon, Haunter, and Ninetales (I think). Would you believe I didn't have anyone to trade my Haunter to? Ah, the good old days...

Wow... Way back when...

-Zapdos (Drill Peck/Thunder/Fly/something)
-Moltres (Fire Blast/Fire Spin/Sky Attack/Peck)
-Articuno (Ice Beam/Blizzard/Fly/Substitute)
-Mewtwo (Psychic/Amnesia/Swift/Recover)
-Venusaur (Tackle/Sleep Powder/Solarbeam/Razor Leaf).

A funny story... I was a big newbie, but this trainer that otherwise easily beat me (his L:69 Blastoise beat my L:70 Venusaur because of its Surf/Hydro Pump/Ice Beam/Blizzard) thought that Amnesia was a useless move.

When I restarted, I used Blastoise/Dugtrio/Gengar/Pidgeot/Hitmonchan on my team. I still use that game...

Way back when my Charizard was the strongest guy on my team, i was facing the E4 with a L54 Charizard, some other crap, and a few L3 Pidgeys. My prized Charmander (named Flamesy) was the only guy I trained. After I had gotten gameshark, my team looked like this:
Charizard
Venusaur
Lapras
Alakazam
Zapdos
Kidoking
I learned bigger was never better. My Alakazam had Hypnosis and killed all my friends and my little brother so many times. All my PKMN then had moves according to their type. (Water Gun and Bubble for Lapras) Those were the days. I won't bore you with the stages of PKMN growth I went through after that. Grr.

Hoo boy, this was like a year and a half ago... lemme see.... I hated the starters, so I used....

Tentacruel

Barrier
Hydro Pump
Surf
Acid

Arcanine

Bite
Fire Blast
Roar
Double Team

Kingler

Strength
Stomp
Crabhammer
Guillotine

Tauros

Stomp
Double Team
Fury Attack (I think)
Rage (oh boy, now you see the crap emerging)

Primeape (okay, this makes no sense at all)

Rest (WHAT?)
Thrash
Karate Chop
Seismic Toss

and, the coup de grace....

Weezing

Toxic
Substitute
Smokescreen
Sludge


If I knew what I was thinking I'd tell you. I knew no one else who played, and had never talked to anyone about it or checked anything.

In fact, I used the blizzard TM on Arcticuno as soon as I got him, and the Thunder TM on Zapdos.

...and I used Psywave on Mewtwo....

Swift on Electrode... bubblebeam on Starmie.... solar beam on exeggutor... oh my...
[size=-1]ice beam on marowak...[/size]

When I first started playing, I didn't know HMs couldn't be deleted, so I taught it to Charizard (who was, of course, the ABSOLUTE coolest! Well, even I never thought that in my newbie Days).

Charizard: Slash, Fire Spin, Flamethrower, Cut

Then there was my first tournament (Nintendo's famous tour where everyone received a Mew). I did the Poke-Cup. I remember my awesome team...

Cloyster: Spike Cannon, Ice Beam, Withdraw, Clamp
Raichu: Thunder, Swift, Thundershock, Quick Attack
Mr. Mime: Confusion, Psywave, Barrier, Substitute

I was actually able to beat a kid with Charizard, Venusaur, and Blastoise. I still remember how it went:

Go, CLOYSTER!
Go, CHARIZARD!
CHARIZARD used FLAMETHROWER!
CLOYSTER used ICE BEAM!
CHARIZARD used FLAMETHROWER!
CLOYSTER fainted!
Go RAICHU!
RAICHU used THUNDER!
CHARIZARD fainted!
Go, VENUSAUR!
RAICHU used BODY SLAM!
VENUSAUR used RAZOR LEAF!
RAICHU used BODY SLAM!
Critical hit!
VENUSAUR fainted!
Go BLASTOISE!
RAICHU used THUNDER!
BLASTOISE fainted!

I was soooo happy that I won. Unfortunately, I had lost before that to a wicked hot 14-year old girl with Lapras, so I wasn't qualified to get picked to face a Gym Leader.

And that's what I remember. What fun!

I still have my first ever squad saved on my brother's Mega Memory cartridge! I trained them all to level 100 by going through the Elite 4 again and again, I insisted on having every pokemon in the squad with a HM, and I always lost to Squall in our Mewtwo vs. Mewtwo fights! The squad was:

Blastoise
Strength
Bubblebeam
Bite
Hydro Pump

Raichu
Flash
Thundershock
Swift
Thunder

Sandslash
Cut
Dig
Earthquake
Rock Slide

Articuno
Fly

My First Team... almost 2 years ago *sniff*.

Tentacruel (Octo... so lame....)
Surf
Barrier
Lscreen (I think...)
Hydro Pump
(He won me all my battles, period. Max special helped him out.)

Arcanine (Kest)
Bite
Fire Blast
Double Team
Hyper Beam
(offense ho!)

Exeggutor (Dormamu)
Hypnosis
Solar Beam
Psychic
Stomp
(Stomp, eh? I kept him because he's got almost max stats, except for attack, down by about 4. He was the first I ever caught, and I was under the impression that all Exeggutor had super-high stats. Nope, just him.)

Weezing (Choke)
Smokescreen
Rest
Toxic
Substitute
(???)

Dragonite (Romulus)
Rest
Strength
T-wave
Double Team
(I thought I invented this, I still have him too because he's got max stats except for speed)

and the coup de grace...

Mewtwo (Disaster)
Psychic
Psywave (ugh...)
Recover
T-bolt
(the game said psywave was powerful. The game was wrong. My mewtwo sucked anyways.)

Ah... those were the days...
No wait, no they weren't.

I remember how simple it all seemed... ahhh. I still have my Venusaur from way back then I think my team was:

Venusaur:
RazorLeaf
SleepPowder
DoubleEdge
Cut

I loved this thing, RazorLeaf almost ALWAYS got a critical hit, and I remember how annoyed I was that Cut would not go away! It is the only thing I trained pretty much until it reached 100.

ButterFree:
Whirlwind(???)
MegaDrain
Psychic
StunSpore

TV show inspired...

Kangaskan:
CometPunch
Rockslide
Earthquake
Bite

Still one of my favorites, but it took me SO long to capture one in red.

Articuno:
IceBeam
Mist(Had NO idea what it did)
Fly
Blizzard

Amazingly enough, I caught it pretty easily with an UltraBall (I threw away my first MasterBall-I seriously didnt know what it did, and I needed room in my computer, so I thought "I only have one of those" and tossed it...)

Gengar:
NightShade
SeismicToss
Psychic
Metronome

I really liked the way SeismicToss's animation looked.And Metronome was what I thought to be one of the coolest attacks!

Jolteon:
Thunder
ThunderWave
PinMissle
ThunderBolt

I think Thunder's animation looks better in R/B/Y than now.Also, I never knew Paralyzation slows down a Pokemon until I got Stadium.

Well, thats it, ahh.. the good ol days. I remember getting it like two weeks after it came out just thinking it would be cool to get a new RPG for gameboy.
