The game is a good bit harder without the starter. I am currently doing a mono bug run and the water and fire gyms are tough. but once I get golisopod it’ll literally eat the fire gym for breakfast.

I ended up keeping Rillaboom around, but I barely used him after getting a full team of Pokemon that I liked. Really only used him against Hop's Inteleon and against Nessa in the final portion of the story.

Intelleon is great because he's got the Frieza influence.

How so? Rillaboom is a motherf***ing beast.

I dont even like the new starter pokemon. the green monkey with drum looks stupid in the first place. plus the water pokey is a lizard or something? So its like the water version of Treecko or something?

My grooky is terrible. He NEVER hits with razor leaf. The accuracy says 95 but in game it’s been more like 1 hit out of every 5 attempts. And razor leaf is it’s only decent physical grass move.

Cinderace is pretty good in the main game, given he gets a 120 power Fire move with no downsides beyond imperfect accuracy.
