10 Best Pokémon To Beat Generation 1

Gotta Catch 'Em All! Or maybe just these ten?


When Professor Oak pushes you out the door with a powerful monster shoved in your pocket on a quest to “Catch ‘Em All”, the task can seem very daunting. Not only that, Eight Gym Leaders, Team Rocket, the Elite Four and the Champion are all standing in your way. Luckily for you, the Kanto region is teeming with a variety of Pokémon for you to catch, raise and train to help on your road to victory.

But which Pokémon should you choose? After all, you only have six coveted slots in your party and you have to make them count. Sure the power of Legendary Pokémon like Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres and Mewtwo seems appealing, but these aren’t encountered until the end of your journey. You won’t be scooping up Mewtwo for your Gym Battle with Brock!

Thats where this list comes in, counting down the best Pokémon you can encounter along the way and to help you make the strongest team possible. These might not be the strongest Pokémon that the Kanto experience has to offer, but they can certainly get the job done.
