Cerulean City Gym & Misty!
Okay so if you chose Charmander, this is one of the most annoying battles you’ll probably face in the entire game.
The first Pokemon she dishes out is Staryu. It actually isn’t too shabby of a Pokemon, but if you have anything grass/electric it’ll take her down quite easily. Staryu won’t cause you much of any problems and should be taken down quite easily. The strategy I chose was to put the bastard to sleep and two quick confusion’s to knock it out completely.
The real pain starts and ends with Starmie. This guy has a whole lot of spunk, being half psychic only adds to more of the problem. Starmie knows Water Pulse, which has the chance to confuse you if hit. Charmeleon or Charmander normally will be virtually useless against Starmie by himself. Often only requiring to hit one Water Pulse depending on your level. I suggest if you didn’t start out with Bulbasaur or Squirtle, to go pick up a grass type just for this. Maybe an Oddish.
My Strategy was surrounded by luck. I sent out ButterFree and put Starmie to sleep first thing. I then switched out to Charmeleon and hit him with a total of three smokescreens before it woke back up. I then landed three Super Punch’s and took Starmie out. Being extremely lucky that he was asleep so long, and that all his Water Pulse’s missed.. I got the badge nonetheless. Regardless, I trained up before facing misty, and still found her to be a problem. I suggest some much needed training!
I’m off to Surge! Peace!
