I made a list for all the final forms of pokemon I had in the game
and I wrote down all of their overall statistics. Doing this made me
know who is good in the game and who isn't good. I decided that I 
could help everyone else and  put the list on the internet. Remember
that this is the overall statistics of my pokemon. The ones you 
catch will be different depending on how you raise them. The difference
can be as big as 50 points. Since I raised all my pokemon the same way,
you don't have to worry about some of my pokemon being stronger because
I raised it differently.  This FAQ will give you an idea of who is
strong and who isn't. Makes me feel proud to be the only person to do
this. This is my first FAQ or actually anything I have ever wrote for a
game so please e-mail me for any suggestions or any mistakes I have
made to paulmolive0@yahoo.ca   But please, don't ask me to rate your
pokemon team.


There are 3 sections. The first section shows the lists of pokemon by 
their type and shows you their overall power. 

The second section is a list of all the final forms of pokemon and 
their overall power in one big list. 

The third section is a list of ALL the pokemon in the game. It will
tell you what all the final forms of pokemon are evolved from.
  
My way of overall power is adding the HP(Health Points) Attack, 
Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed together 
and then dividing the number by 6.

For example Ho-oh.  
 
HP + Attack + Defense + Spl. Attack + Spl. Defense + Speed   

362 + 313 + 249 + 269 + 357 + 241 = 1791 Divided by 6 = 299

You should know that even though you use someone like Lugia(Psychic),
it can still get it's butt kicked by someone weaker like
Umbreon(Dark).Pokemon's strengths and weaknesses can play a major role
in who is mightier in a battle. So can the item that the other pokemon
equips or the moves that it has.

IMPORTANT: If you use rare candy to level up you get less stats then
if you do it manually. However at the end (Level 100) you'll get the
same stats. When you get to level 100 manually you get the highest 
stat that the pokemon can get. But if you do it using rare candy 
you'll get much lower stats. Using items like Protein and Calcium
to the max while using rare candy to get  to level 100 will let you 
get the same stat as if you did it manually.

**********************************************************************
For the people who don't own Crystal/Gold/Silver. I put a * beside the
pokemon name to tell you that these pokemon are from Red/Blue/Yellow

- 2. POKEMON TYPES                                                  -

These are lists of the different types of pokemon in the game and the 
overall power they have. This will show you who is the strongest of
each type. Remember that these are just the final forms of pokemon 
and that these are the overall statistics of my pokemon. Your pokemon
will be slightly different. 
 
Some pokemon are on 2 lists cause they have 2 types.

Did you know about the Thick Club? This is an item that you can steal
(a 1.5% chance) from wild Marowaks and Cubones. Anyways, this item
doubles his physical attack power. With the club, my Marowak has an
attack power of 496 (Depending on the attack DV, it can be as much as
520!). Compare that to your attack stat for Tyranitar, Dragonite,
Mewtwo, and all the other pokemon who are supposed to be super strong.
None of them have an attack rating of more than 386, do they? With just
the club, Marowak should be MUCH higher on your list.

Thanks for pointing this out. Yes there is an item called "Thick Club"
But that is the only item that changes an individual pokemon's stat. 
Other items like Dragon Fang which increases dragon type moves is used
by all pokemon. So the stats shouldn't be showed for when the item is
shown. But for the Marowak, his overall stat is 251 when it
is equipped.

There is another item that doubles the special attack for Pikachu but
since he's not a final form of a pokemon he's not in my list.

First of all, I think you did a wonderful job on the Pokemon Overall
Statistics FAQ.  It is packed with info in 3 different sections and it
is really impressive considering you said this was your first FAQ. 
 
However, I noticed a couple of things said in your guide that by
playing the game (especially looking at pokemon stats over and over
while breeding pokemon) are not necessarily true.  Here's what I saw: 

1.  In your intro, you mentioned these were stats for your particular
pokemon, that the reader's might be different, but only by about 10 or
so.

- Actually, I've found that if you have two pokemon, one with at the
very minimum of potential and one at the very max, and you train them
exactly the same, at level 100 the max-pokemon will be 30 higher in
every category (HP, Atk, Def, Spc Atk, Spc Def, Spd).  And that is if
you raise them exactly the same.  If you feed one vitamins and not the
other, that is another about 40 points higher in each category that one
will get.  It also makes a difference in how you train pokemon 

- do you fight or rare candy? (you mentioned this part) Do you let them
get in the finishing blow or pull them back every battle?  All these
things make a difference.  I calculated the very min and very max for
Venusaur, and found each individual stat differed by almost 100, and
using your formula the minimum came out to 197.5 and the max was
290.5.  This means that depending on how you raise your pokemon, the
difference between your values and someone elses can be nearly 100, and
having pokemon with different potential, the rankings could be
different than the way you have them. 

2.  You also mentioned that by rare candying a pokemon up and then
using vitamins you would end with the same values as you would training
them manually. 

- Vitamins have a big impact but if you never actually fight and rely
on the vitamins you will not get the highest stats.  There are certain
stats that can only be obtained through battling.  You can get them
before L100.  Or, to get the very maximum stats after L100 you can
continue to fight with that pokemon until it has been in several
battles and gained more experience, then "box it".  Put it in a PC box
and leave it there for a while.  Retrieve it and it will have gone up
in stats.  However, this is a huge pain in the neck and it is much
easier to just train them right before they get to L100.

                                             Sent by: poke_breeder16

WOW! Thank's a lot for pointing out how to get the most stats from your 
pokemon you want. For me it doesn't matter since I raised all my 
pokemon the same way. So don't worry if the stats I have listed are 
wrong since some of my pokemon are stronger since I raised them 
differently.

I've been getting E-mails saying that there are lots of times when a
weaker pokemon can defeat a stronger pokemon. Yes, I am very aware that
you can get someone like Blastoise ,which has a stat rating of 250, to
totally crush someone like Ho-oh ,which has a stat rating 299, who is
much higher in my stats list. The reason I made this list is to just
show you what these pokemon's stats are at level 100. You make the
desicion who to pick and what moves to organise. But the list of what
types of Pokemon there are and who is the strongest in that type is
there to help you make a balanced team. You could get the strongest
Fire,Water,Psychic,etc. type of pokemon to make a party the way you 
like it to counterattack which type of opponent you're playing against.

Well here it is. I hope you put this information to good use cause 
this took me a LONG time to do. Not in making the FAQ. But in 
getting all the information and organising it all.

The sites where this FAQ can be found are at
     www.gamefaqs.com
     www.rpgclassics.com

If you find this FAQ anywhere else than whats listed here please inform
me.

If you want this FAQ on your page please notify me by E-mail first. 
I'll most likely say yes but I just need to know where my FAQ will be
so I can write it down here. If I do let you put it on your site then
do not change the FAQ in any way. Do not delete anything or add
anything. Just email me at paulmolive0@yahoo.ca
