Has anyone noticed that it's very hard to create varied teams using only Generation 2 Pokemon? It is my favorite gen gameplay-wise but this always felt like a drawback for me. Many times you would be forced to use Gen 1 Pokemon because of lack of options.
100 new Pokemon introduced.
6 are Legendaries: (Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-oh, Celebi)
6 are Pre-evolutions of existing Pokemon: (Magby, Smoochum, Elekid, Pichu, Igglybuff, Cleffa)
8 are Evolutions of existing Pokemon: (Scizor, Steelix, Crobat, Umbreon, Espeon, Kingdra, Bellossom, Hitmontop)
9 are Starters, 6 are therefore unavailable.
Only 74 left. Houndour and Houndoom aren't even found until after the E4 , they're in another region for some reason.
Anybody else notice this?
