I was able to beat the game. I beat the game in 23 hours and 14 minutes.
I was inspired by Twitch plays pokemon. I wanted to see if I could beat Pokemon Red Blue without using a Starter pokemon or a legendary. Normally when i play I want to use Blastoise or Charizard and then also use Snorlax as well as Zapdos. Once you get Zapdos the game becomes very easy because you can use Fly and Drill Peck as well as Thunderbolt and that beats SO many pokemon because Zapdos has good stats as well.
So I wanted to see if I could make it through the game without using “good pokemon” I wanted to use pokemon that were “just okay”
When I made it to the Elite Four I wanted to see if I could beat them without using any items to see how my team compared. I lost to my rival who I named “Gary” I was able to get to his GYRADOS. (I also like to use Gyrados because it is OP, but my team did not have Gyrados). I was able to make it to the rival but not beat him on my try and I did not use any items. My main pokemon was a CLEFABLE, a KADABRA, a VAPOREON, and a Pidgeot. I also had a low level Nidoking and a low level Omanyte (in tribute to Lord Helix) from Twitch. Before I went back to try again I wanted to get TM 15 Hyper Beam for Kadabra but I did not have enough money and/or coins in order to get it.
I was basically ready to try again, this time I would use healing items.
On my second time through, I was able to beat the Champion!
My team to win the game was:
Clefable level 68 -Tri Attack, BubbleBeam, Thunderbolt, Metronome
Vaporeon level 48 – Ice Beam and Surf
Kadabra level 56 – Psybeam and Psychic and Recover
Pigeot level 45 – Fly, wing attack, quick attack
Nidoking level 31 – Strength, Thrash
Omanyte level 32 – Water Gun
The AI of the game is not that smart, it doesn’t really take advantage of chances to kill you, which I guess is why TWITCH could win with the Venomoth against Dragonite. Having my Clefable know TRI ATTACK and Bubblebeam was very important. Also, Vaporeon with Surf and Ice Beam was important. And Kadabra is strong.
You can definitely beat the game without using a Starter and you don’t need any Legendaries to win. You just need some “medium” tier pokemon and good use of the TMS.
(I will admit that Kadabra is a pretty strong pokemon, the game would be tougher if I could not use Kadabra … )
Thank you to all my fans and supporters!
