How to beat the eigth gym leader and get your badge
As you can assume, beating the 8th gym leader is VERY hard. this is my guide to beat and get your 8th badge! If your starter pokemon was a Cyndiquil, this guide would especially help you, because I made this guide based on the typlosion route to victory, as it is hard to beat Claire with a Typlosion. If you have a Magainium, this guide is not for you, as a Magainium could easily beat her. If you have Feraligator, this guide would sorta help you, but I have never got NEAR getting far in the game, as I always got stuck when you have to battle your rival in Azalea town, because with that razor leaf of his, ohhhhhh that gives a naaaaaaaaasty kick to it. anyways, I need to start the guide part.
When you get to claire, as far as I remember, the first pokemon she sends out is a level 35 seadra. Don't use typlosion just yet. Use your 3rd most pokemon, and makesure it knows fly. Use fly until it faints. Then, she sends out dragonair. Watch out! The first move is to use fly! And maybe another bird type move like gust, or maybe hypnosis.(hypnosis recommended)then, use fly. Use fly until it faints. Switch pokemon, because it probaly fainted also. Use your second most powerful pokemon. (Must know dragonrage, fly, dig, or rocksmash. Use dragonrage on claire's second dragonair. Then, use fly until it faints. Now, here is the tough part-Claire sends out-KINGDRA!(it's level 40!) Use your typlosion! (must know dig, swift, strength, and cut.) First, use dig. Then, strength. Then, dig, as kingdra will use either ice beam, or hyper beam. Use dig again. Then strength, then dig. Then swift.Finally, use strength. Tada! (Might be wrong, but I gave my best effort, and it's harder than it sounds, I battled her 6 times, then finally won.)But, she won't give you the last badge. don't panic, all you have to do is go to dragon's den, and when you get to the entrance, the man won't be blocking it. Go through. surf south-west, then go east, then go to the land with an item on it, and that's dragon's fang. Then, claire comes and gives you your badge and tells you how to get to the kanto region. Now, your on your own!
