Everything is good ingame.

A poll doesnt change that; in fact it may very well prove it.

Porygon and Farfetch’d probably wouldn’t work. Generally you are right though.

Porygon works. (massive movepool, decent enough stats)

Farfetch'd works. (higher Attack than Dragonite after 1 Swords Dance)

And all of this s*** works.

Porygon’s movepool is really the only thing it has, its stats are pretty terrible especially compared to other 1 stage Gen 1 Pokémon like Scyther and Tauros. Farfetch’d is slow and frail, I doubt it would be easy to set up.

So I guess you’re right, pretty much anything works in-game. Can’t imagine that every Pokémon would be too fun to use, but sure, it could work.

Porygon’s movepool is the only thing it has

And the “only” thing makes a huge difference due to having Thunderbolt, Ice Beam and Shadow Ball, whereas Tauros has… Normal STAB? Crappy coverage of Earthquake and Iron Tail? (don’t use up the TMs, btw – strong as they are, they are not worth it)
Now, we could argue about whether Tauros’s stats make up for the lack of Shadow Ball, theorize, make damage calcs, all that mambo.

But is it really worth it on a game as easy as this?

“Yeah, for efficiency” in which case you would not use something so expensive as Porygon or rare as Tauros.
There’s no such thing as half efficiency. You either solo with your starter/Nidoking/Nidoqueen/whatever, or use a team of pokemon at your own preference.
This is because if you come up with shortcomings, levels, followed by movesets, are MUCH more impactful to make up for them instead of pokemon species.
It’s not important whether A is better or worse than B at beating ingame, because of a few pixels' worth of extra damage that can be compensated by just 1 or 2 levels.
For that same reason, legendary birds and early Snorlax may be the only things truly recommended for ingame (and Snorlax is already a bit of a stretch), because they come at a high level. Which still doesn't make them necessary in any way.

tl;dr:
Everything is good ingame.
There is no best ingame team.
Stop worrying about pokemon species and just pick your favorites.
Worry about levels and moves instead.


I doubt it would be easy to setup.

Well too bad for your doubts, because I’ve used it and it’s easy.
Also, trainers have 0 EVs on their pokemon; which makes slow pokemon not so slow.
