    Thanks. It's just a shame that I can't evolve my Haunter into a Gengar unless I trade it to some other Gameboy. That's something you can't do with an emulator. Shame too, Gengar is one of my favorites.

    Oh well, I can still have one beast ass haunter though lol.

    sometimes they get the best moves when they don't evolve for a long time.
    Learned that when breeding Torchics in Sapphire, you have to keep it at Torchic till pretty damn close to when it should be a Blaziken but if you want Flamethrower and some other good fire moves it is so worth it. Same way with most Pokemon from what I've seen. It's just a matter of getting the breeding to work just right, and I do mean just right.

    Well right now my Haunter is almost level 50 with Toxic, Confuse Ray, Night Shade, and Hypnosis as his moveset.

    I don't think Pokémon Red/Blue has breeding lol.

    ah, my bad, first generation of the games I had sadly was Ruby/Sapphire. still not evolving a pokemon still can mean it gets moves that it's evolved forms wouldn't.

    I'd like to get Haunter another poison type move to replace Hypnosis. I generally prefer to use moves that the Pokémon type is best with and Haunter is a ghost/poison dual type.

    I've never been big on moves like hypnosis/yawn/sleep powder I usually prefer my status effect moves to hurt as bad as the effect might, plus I usually try to keep my Pokemon a level or two above where I'm heading sometimes more if I can, so hitting with hard attacks and wearing down health is my main strategy usually, course it depends on the Pokemon in my team a lot of times.

    I have a really good strategy for level up weak Pokémon quickly.

    Go to an area with Pokémon on a much higher level then the one you want to level up. Get into a battle and then immediately switch to a stronger Pokémon and beat your opponent so the weaker Pokémon get's half the exp points.

    That's how I usually do it until I get expshare, once I get that though I focus on passing it around so my Pokemon all stay in the same level range even if I focus on a different Pokemon. Half the time I focus most of my effort on my starter, never understood why I do it but I do.

    Ah, right now all my Pokémon around level 40 or higher.

    Except Kingler, he's level 30. He's my newest team addition and I've been grinding to get him up to speed with my other Pokémon lol.

    I hate Oddish, if I find a wild one after catching one and have a fire type with me, I just roast them, I've roasted hundreds upon hundreds of the damn things.

    I had to train one to get my Vileplume though. Annoying as fuck to fight if you're low on poison heals and awakening potions lol.

    I know, they always do Supersonic and it breaks the Pokemon I'm using, but the second I make my Zubat do that to a Mon they are hardly bothered

    It always seems like the odds are stacked in your opponent's favor when you're fighting equal leveled ones lol.
