EWB Play-Along: Pokémon FireRed

Recommended Posts

Ah, the arrogance of youth. Just rushed into a battle with Misty thinking that my level 16 Pikachu could handle it, two Water Pulses later and I had to re-think my strategy... which turned out to be die with dignity. Looks like I've got some painfully boring training to do in that little patch of grass outside Cerulean City.

My Pokemans:

Squirtle (Lv. 16)

Pikachu (Lv. 16)

Nidoran ♂ (Lv. 14)

Clefairy (Lv. 11)

Caterpie (Lv. 4)

EDIT: Also, where the fuck did you guys get Mankeys?

Skummy, your Oddish and absorb should destroy Misty's entire team.

Yeah. And so should Wartortle FUCKING UP HER SHIT.

Mankeys are on Route 22 near Viridian City, where you battle Gary. As are Spearows if you want one of them.

Beat Brock just now, on my way to Mt. Moon. Team consists of: Bulbasaur (level 14), Pidgey (level 12), Mankey and Rattata (both level 10), and a Weedle (level 8) that will be a Beedrill soon enough.

And I vote for an all fighting team, though that might fuck you over for Pokémon Tower.

That was exactly what happened to me with Misty. Walk in like I'm ready to be the new gym leader, bust out my Pikachu all cockily, WATER PULSE FTW! fuck.

Just beat Misty with my Squirtle, although Pikachu had done almost all the work.

My team, with levels in parenthesis.

>> Squirtle (20)

>> Pikachu (18)

>> Spearow (17)

>> Mankey (17)

>> Abra (15)

Spent ages trying to get that damn Abra, in the process of making him into a Kadabra as we speak... trying to figure out what type of Pokémon should get the last spot on the team (for now).

Defeated Gary, Visited Bill, and defeated all the trainers along the way to level my team up some more before trying Misty. Damn that Water Pulse to hell, but I managed to survive and beat her with Mankey and Pidgeotto still alive, thanks to a Poison Sting from my Nidorino that poisoned the Starmie early on.

Couple of evolutions, but my team now consists of;

Pikachu - Lvl 18

Wartortle - Lvl 16

Geodude - Lvl 17

Pidgeotto - Lvl 18

Nidorino - Lvl 19

Mankey - Lvl 19

My Current Team:

r9enfq.png

Forgot how much of a slag Misty is, her Starmie (?) (the second evolution one) made mince meat of Pikachu with Water Pulse, took two attempts to take it out. Just beaten the second gym and I've now arrived at Electric City, going to level up some before taking on the Sarge seeing how weak my Geodude is.

Went down to Vermillion City beat some of the trainers down there raised Kadabra to lvl 26, Got sick of trying to raising Pidgey, So I stuck him in daycare while I was doing this and he jumped up 4 levels to 18 when I got back, Also beat Misty and her underlings and beat everyone on the Ship, Including my rival once again, Tried to catch a lv3 Pikachu and wasted a TON of balls on it and it still wouldn't get in the damn ball, So I Psybeamed it to death and after that I beat the 3rd gym, Going to leave it there for awhile.

Also nabbed myself these three to add to my collection.

Meowth (lv16)

Drowzee (lv13)

Diglett (lv19)

Ekans (lv14)

and traded my Spearow (lv10) for a Farfetch'd (lv10) and another Abra (lvWho Cares) for a Mr. Mime (lv11)

Current Team

Kadabra (lv31)

Wartortle (lv26)

Geodude (lv22)

Pidgeotto (lv21) - Only needed 32exp to evolve after I got him out of daycare.

Beedrill (Lv17)

Ekans (lv14)

Fuck. I've got CUT and I get to the Gym where you have to use CUT to get to it. Turns out its an electric type gym. Fuck >.>

I just was reminded how much I hate the electric gym. Not because of the leader, oh no, but because of how fucking annoying it is to dig through those trash bins to find the switches, god forbid you pick the wrong bin for the 2nd switch. 20 minutes later and...

MY TEAM

pokemonfirered03.pngpokemonfirered02.png

Nidorino evolves to Nidoking with a Moon Stone if I'm remembering correctly? So I'm thinking about evolving him soon. Stuck him with Cut, as well. Defeated Surge, and just finished healing up my team.

In my PC, I've got

- Ekans (Lv 10)

- Spearow (Lv 6)

- Oddish (Lv 12)

- Meowth (Lv 10)

- Drowzee (Lv 13)

And I've got one question for you guys (besides confirming that Nidorino evolves with a moon stone). Who should I use my rare candy on, or should I save it?

EDIT: And props to Tkz for having a nearly identical team.

EDIT 2:

God damn you guys play this game a lot. I set this all up and I only just reached Mt. Moon. :@

Emulator + Speed Button = Win. I'd hate to be playing this on a GBA, it'd be way too slow. I've only played last night and tonight, probably for an hour a piece.

Started last night but only played for about 5 minutes, so my team is literally just Bulbasaur (Lv8), Ratatta (Lv3) and Pidgey (Lv3).

Annoyingly, I can't seem to super-speed the ROM with the GBA emulator like I can with the GB emulator...or at least, not in a way I've discovered yet. So it's a bit tedious to play as it stands... I can't remember which emulator it is at the moment, but I'll check when I get home and ask if anyone knows the speed button for it.

I could of course play Stokerina's actual copy of the game on her actual old GBA, and take it to play on the train and such...but it's pink. >_<

I'm going to get myself a 'Normal' type team! Not sure whether I might cheat slightly and keep Pidgey/etc. though, since they're Normal/Flying type.

Clefable

Tauros

Persian

(I presume I won't be able to get a couple of those on FireRed, but still.)

VBA is what I've been using and it's pretty simple to just apply the Speed Function to a certain button. I've been playing this whole time using a PS2 controller with one of the shoulder buttons for speed.

Oh, you have to apply it? That'll be why then... On other emulators I've always found it pre-assigned to the '+' key or some-such.

That's exactly how I'm doing it. You guys just clearly play more than I do. >_>

Also, is there any way to trade on a emulator? I really, really want a Golem. :(

I used to have a GB emulator yeeaars ago that allowed me to 'dual load' two save games side-by-side and link them both for trading etc. Unfortunately I have NO idea which emulator it was (except I think it may have been DOS rather than Windows based), and I've not looked around GBA emulators enough to see if any of them have anything similar.

You can get all of those on Fire Red. The question will be whether you have the patience to get your hands on a Tauros.

Also lol at everyone getting their asses handed to them by Misty's Starmie.
