Has anyone here managed to fight him in Gen I? I did it using the Ditto glitch. For those that don't know what I'm talking about, Professor Oak was supposedly going to be an opponent in the First gen, but was taken out. Going by his levels, he would've been either a champion, or bonus boss like Cynthia. His team is made up of Tauros, Gyarados, Exeggutor, Arcanine, and whichever starter you and your Rival didn't choose.
