Stadium 1 GLC

~~~ Team 8: Vaporeon, Electrode, Nidoking, Jolteon, Articuno, Zapdos
Rocket: Golbat, Raticate, Persian, Moltres, Dodrio, Parasect
Team: Jolteon, Zapdos, Articuno (A, CR, CD)
Notes: Thunder all, finish Persian with DK. Reset if you don't crit Raticate, or Parasect shows up.
Alt Elec Notes: Thunder first, but Explode on Raticate/Parasect, clean up with Jolteon/Articuno respectively (Double Kick Raticate/Persian after exploding) | Go Jolteon if crit Parasect

Lab Man: Kabutops, Magneton, Fearow, Hitmonchan, Poliwrath, Lickitung
Team: Jolteon, Nidoking, Zapdos (A, CU, CR)
Notes: Thunder all, can DK Lickitung to finish if possible. If Magneton shows, switch to Nidoking and EQ, then Horn Drill everything else.
Double Kick is 46-56 on Lickitung.
Alt Elec Notes: Thunder all but Magneton/Lickitung, Explode on them and clean with Jolt (Go Jynx if Magenton 35-50) [Double Kick only does about 20]
Swift does ~17 to Poliwrath, ~19 to Hitmonchan | Double Kick does ~22 to Magneton, Psychic does ~50

Cool M: Omastar, Dodrio, Tentacruel, Clefable, Zapdos, Pinsir
Team: Zapdos, Jolteon, Electrode (CR, A, CL)
Notes: Thunder all. Substitute on Zap vs Zap as Thunder Wave inc.
Swift does 19-23 to Clefable, 21-25 to Tenta, 17-20 to Zapdos, 15-18 to Pinsir, 6 to Omastar
DK is 34 to Omastar, 50 to Clefable, 12 to Tentacruel (PM is 15 per hit), 8 to Pinsir (PM is 5 per)
Zapdos Thunder is 89.7% on Omastar, Jolteon is 41% | Zapdos is 33.3/28.2% on Tentacruel/Pinsir (never Jolteon) - so always go Zapdos second unless DK range.

Giovanni: Persian, Dugtrio, Nidoqueen, Nidoking, Rhydon, Tauros
Team: Articuno, Electrode, Vaporeon (CD, CL, B )
Notes: Ice Beam everything. If Dugtrio shows up, switch to Electrode then switch back as he Digs. If Persian/Tauros are about to kill, switch to Electrode and explode.
If Dugtrio last and used Slash on Articuno, then instead explode and Quick Attack to finish with Vappy. | Dugtrio does 98-116 to Articuno, can risk this range if you want to since first gym
Vaporeon is 19-23 with QA on Dugtrio | Electrode selfd is 99-117, good odds.
QA is 17-20 on Persian, 14-17 on Nidoking, 13-16 on Nidoqueen, 12-15 on Tauros

~~~ Team 2: Nidoking Tentacruel Starmie Jynx Jolteon Zapdos
Judoboy: Raticate, Primeape, Machoke, Nidoking, Hitmonlee, Machamp
Team: Jynx, Starmie, Zapdos (A, CU, CR)
Notes: IP Nidoking, Psychic others (Finish Raticate with it too, just crit isn't OHKO)

Psychic: Slowbro, Alakazam, Poliwrath, Starmie, Jynx, Hypno
Team: Zapdos, Jolteon, Starmie (CR, CD, CU )
Notes: Substitute on Hypno, Sky Attack Zam, Thunder others (Can also Sky Attack Jynx if scared of not missing and crit doesn't matter. Does 86-102 with Ice Beam. Will switch to Slowbro tho, so be careful.)
Hypno: Thunder: 74-88 | Sky Attack: 100-118 (Sky Attack then Thunder to kill, imo)
SA is 87.2% on Zam (It does 100, 2 Seismic Tosses)
Jolt: 38/39 to OHKO Slowbro | VS Zam: Thunder is 59-70 (PM is 17-20 per) [DK is 14-16]
VS Hypno: Thunder is 67-79 (PM is 13-16 per) [DK is 10-14, 37/39 12+)
VS Jynx: Thunder is 79-93 (PM is 18-22 per) [DK is 38-46]
If want to play risky, can just Thunder on Hypno, and switch to Jolteon if put to sleep. About as fast if Starmie is in back. On Jolteon vs Zam, use Thunder turn 1 then Pin Missile (chance of para + shorter animations on Pin Missile if it kills)

Nerd: Electrode, Snorlax, Golem, Exeggutor, Muk, Cloyster
Team: Zapdos, Nidoking, Jolteon (CR, B, CD)
Notes: Explosion team, substitute first two then clean (Thunder Cloyster) | Switch to Nidoking and EQ Electrode if last | If Cloyster second, Electrode can/will be back, so go Nidoking if missed Thunder [If certain of this, actually faster by 7 seconds to use Sky Attack and take Explosion on Purpose rather than switch. Snorlax/Exeggutor lead seems to do this]

Blaine: Charizard, Arcanine, Rapidash, Magmar, Clefable, Kangaskhan
Team: Tentacruel, Starmie, Jolteon (CL, CU, CD)
Notes: Hydro Pump Everything. | Charizard does 93-110 to Tenta, if it'll kill just switch to Starmie and BB (98-116 on Jolteon) [Can go to Jolt if last and risky]
Arcanine is 114-134 on Tenta, 119-140 on Jolt | Kanga is 102-120 on Tenta, 107-126 on Jolt
Clefable: Hydro Pump: 90-106 | Acid: 23-28 | Earthquake: 68-81 | Bubblebeam: 43-51 | Thunder: 51-61 | Jolt Thunder: 84-99 | Double Kick: 46-56

Burglar: Ninetales, Vulpix, Ponyta, Growlithe, Charmelon, Rapidash

Medium: Gastly, Haunter, Gengar, Golbat, Lickitung, Tentacruel
Team: Nidoking, Jolteon, Jynx (B, CD, CU )
Notes: EQ all, but switch to Jolteon on Golbat. Switch back to Nidoking if last in Gengar (it'll probably Toxic, Thunder 2HKO is a bad range), Jynx is backup

DK is 44-52 on Lickitung, Thunder is 107-126

Sabrina: Alakazam, Kadabra, Mr Mime, Hypno, Exeggutor, Jynx
Team: Moltres, Electrode, Tauros (CR, CL, A)
Notes: Sky Attack Alakazam, Fire Blast others (Take Down on final hit). If put to sleep by Hypno or Paralysed by Mr Mime, switch to Electrode and finish with Thunder/Swift, then explode on second and clean with Tauros. |
If lead Kadabra, hit Zam once, then switch to Electrode and explode (then send back out Moltres, prob Exeggutor behind). If Kadabra crit and can't do this, Explode and finish with Tauros with Moltres as backup. If Zam crit, use Swift once before exploding and 1v1 with Tauros.
Alakzam: Psybeam: 39-46 to Moltres | 56-67 to Electrode | 61-72 to Tauros (Always dies to Fire Blast + Strength)
Tauros is 61.5% to OHKO Kadabra (outspeeds)
VS Exeggutor: FB: 61-72 | Strength: 56-66

Electrode Selfdestruct OHKOs Kadabra, 59% on Jynx, never Zam. 85-100 on Hypno
Swift is 26-31 on Zam, 34-41 on Kadabra, 31-37 on Jynx, 21-25 on Mr Mime, 17-21 on Exegg, 20-24 on Hypno | Swift + Explode always kills Zam, do that in 2v1, NOT 2v2 (Dig)

Cool F: Marowak, Chansey, Parasect, Nidorina, Nidorino, Lickitung
Team: Articuno, Cloyster, Jynx (CD, B, CU )
Notes: Ice Beam all. If Chansey shows up, continue to Ice Beam until asleep. Then switch to Cloyster and kill (probably boom) and clean with Jynx | If Freeze Chansey, finish with Sky Attack instead (use Ice Beam first, may switch)
Sky Attack: 243-286 | Selfdestruct: 38/39 to OHKO | Spike Cannon: 26-31 per hit
Can switch straight to Cloyster and hope for Sing miss. Definitely do this is Chansey is lead, can argue right option if second too. If so, still go Jynx If Marowak/Parasect lead, back is almost certainly a Nido

Double Kick does 44-52 to Lapras/Dewgong,
18-22/34-42 to Jynx (Reflect), (PM is 10-11/17-19 per hit)
8 to Slowbro (PM is 10-11 per hit)
Selfdestruct does 71-84 to Lapras/Dewgong, 56-66 to Slowbro, 60-71 to Articuno, 61-72/121-143 to Jynx | Swift does about 12-15 depending on Poke
Jolt Thunder is a range on Dewgong/Slowbro (Zapdos slightly better), Electrode gets 1HKO on Cloyster, Jynx/Articuno are always 2HKO. So basically, go Zapdos if full HP Dewgong/Slowbro, otherwise Electrode | 20.5/76.9% on Dewgong, 79.5/100% on Slowbro

Bruno: Onix, Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Machamp, Golem, Rhydon

Agatha: Haunter, Golbat, Arbok, Muk, Venusaur, Gengar
Team: Jynx, Nidoking, Jolteon (CU, B, A)
Notes: Switch if Paralysed, not if put to sleep.
If 1v1 with Golbat, use Ice Punch, but Psychic to start as he'll prob switch. | If Muk lead hit with Sludge and Haunter comes out, switch to Nidoking straight away as TBolt is coming
If Venusaur is alive, but on 62 or less HP after a Psychic on Gengar leads, send out Nidoking and use Earthquake. Also do this on Venusaur leads that did not hit Toxic. (will bait probably Haunter, potentially late Gengar)
If Muk lead and Venusaur second, finish with Jolteon as back is Golbat
If Glared by Arbok and it's not last, then switch out (it'll Fissure) | If hit by a Muk Sludge, you can survive a Golbat Swift so stay in and go for the kill

Lance: Gyarados, Dragonair, Aerodactyl, Lapras, Charizard, Kangaskhan
Team: Articuno, Jolteon, Electrode (CD, A, CL)
Notes: Ice Beam, head to Jolteon/Electrode if you see Lapras and clean with Thunder. If lead Dragonair and it dies, and Gyarados comes second, switch to Electrode and Thunder from there (faster) | Double Kick does 44-52 to Kanga/Lapras
Articuno outspeeds Dragonair, but it uses Thunder Wave if Jolteon is out. So use Thunder once before switching back. | Kanga outspeeds Articuno and uses Rock Slide (for 115-136), so switch to Jolteon if you're gonna die.
Go Jolteon on Lapras if Kanga/Charizard lead, go to Electrode from Dragonair/Lapras lead. Explode with Electrode on Kanga if Jolteon still in back, otherwise it needs 2 Thunders from Electrode.
If Electrode can explode on Lapras and kill, especially from Dragonair leads, do it. Dragonair will come back out (assuming you killed), so send Articuno back in (It's 71-84 just like Lorelei's)

Rival: Exeggutor, Slowbro, Ninetales, Clefable, Electabuzz, Pinsir
Team: Jolteon, Zapdos, Nidoking (A, CR, B )
Notes: Switch to Nidoking on Electabuzz. Pin Missile Exeggutor, Thunder the rest. If Ninetales goes underground, switch to Zapdos and Thunder. Nidoking outspeeds Clef/exegg/slowbro, can Horn Drill if in a pinch | Double Kick does 46-56 to Clefable
Zapdos speed ties Ninetales, so if switch to it while it's underground, might be best to Sky Attack so you don't waste a turn attacking while underground (does same damage) | Sky Attack is a range to OHKO Exeggutor.
EQ: Clef: 68-81 | Slowbro: 51-60 | Exeggutor: 30-36
