Gym Compendium (Yellow)

Contents

This page is designed as a comprehensive guide to all the Gym battles and the Elite 4 in Pokemon Yellow; Special Pikachu Edition. It will tell you the level and types of all the Pokemon each Gym Leader and Elite 4 member use, as well as what badges and TMs are given to you after beating the Leaders of each Gym, and finally what effects each badge and TM has in-game. You receive no TMs or badges for beating Elite 4 members, however.

The Elite 4

Lorelei

Type: Ice

The first member of the Elite his an Ice-type Master, however many of her Pokemon are also of the Water type, and so Thunderbolt is a very useful move here.

Pokemon

  • Jynx
    • Level 56
    • Ice/Psychic


Bruno

Type: Fighting

Bruno uses a number of very strong Fighting-type Pokemon which are most easily taken down with Special attacks such as Psychic

Pokemon

  • Onix
    • Level 53
    • Rock/Ground
  • Onix
    • Level 56
    • Rock/Ground


Agatha

Type: Ghost

Whilst Gengar have a low Defense stat, they are completely immune to the strongest physical assaults - Normal and Fighting type moves. They can also deal very large amounts of damage owing to their huge Special stat, as well as taking little from weaker Special moves.

Pokemon

  • Golbat
    • Level 56
    • Flying/Poison


Lance

Type: Dragon

All of Lance's Pokemon except Gyarados are weak to Ice Beam and Blizzard - make sure you can capitalise upon this weakness!

Pokemon


Elite 4 Champion Jolteon Team

Whatever you chose your Rival's name to be

Type: Multi

The Champion's pokemon are very strong and have a diverse number of types. His Jolteon is very fast and can hit very hard with Thunder

Pokemon

Elite 4 Champion Flareon Team

Whatever you chose your Rival's name to be

Type: Multi

Again there are diverse types, but Flareon is much easier to take down than either Vaporeon or Jolteon - he has poor Speed and Defenses and not many highly offensive moves

Pokemon


Elite 4 Champion Vaporeon Team

Whatever you chose your Rival's name to be

Type: Multi

Vaporeon may prove difficult to beat as he has a huge HP and Special stat, so super effective types such as Electric and Grass may not do much without STAB

Pokemon
