When I was a kid, and I was playing Red, and my sister was playing Blue, I had very limited English knowledge. As the older one, she knew marginally better than me, but she didn't like reading text in video games.

We both picked Charmander, and started our journey innocently enough. Got through the Rattata and the Pidgey that we faced, then the Caterpie and the Weedle, until we reached Brock's Gym. We knew that we had to beat him, but Charmander proved useless, and it was the only thing we had been training until that point, since it destroyed everything in the forest.

We didn't know what to do, and I trusted my sister to figure it out. She didn't figure it out, and instead did a stupid thing.

She told me to evolve my Pidgey and then get it to Level 20, because that's what worked for her.

And that's how, as a kid, I used Pidgeotto against an Onix and won. It took a lot of training, though, especially considering I never had the idea to go to the Viridian Forest, as types were a foreign concept to me.

    It helps that Brock don't know how to Rock-moves in gen I as well.

    I'm pretty sure that's the only reason his Onix didn't defeat Pidgeotto.
