Pokémon Silver Tips

When batling red i sugest you have the following:
Ampharos: Helps for His blastoise and mabey charizard
Tyranitar: All around great. Use for espeon, charizard and pikachu (helps eh?)
Dragonite: Not really significant for this. He's just cool
Typhlosion(or houndoom): Use him to burn up his Venusaur
Misdreaveous: For the surprise snorlax. It learns perish song at Level 46. NOTE: if using him, keep meanlook. I didn't and whenever the perish count gets to zero red withdrws him and my misdreaveous dies.
And a nice Backup for your weakest one!

hope it helps
