I had a Shiftry my first time, so I'm going to use a ludicolo this time. A Taillow the first time as well, but he was so beast I had to get a second one! A pelipper was beast first time, but with a water/grass and flying already, I won't bother.
Mudkip as well is nice. I was thinking about a makuhita or possibly a meiditite?
Torkoal and aggron are a definite yes. Have an aron now.
so that's a firm 4 I want to use.
would love an eletric type (specifically to bring down gyrados's).
Pelipper (water/flying) could learn Shockwave. He was the GOAT pokemon for me when I went through ruby. But Electrike looks dumb and uneventful. I might just get a random-mon and give him thunder or something.
