No second gen team is complete without Girafarig (or Stantler).

But if you really want to be a legend you could rock a Dunsparce. With a BST of 415 he falls in line with the likes of Raticate and Furret except the stats aren't nearly as economically distributed and every single one of his level up moves are trash. He performs best once he's taught Return or, uh, Strength, and with Glare you get a slightly exclusive equivalent to Stun Spore. Through breeding he can learn such game changing moves as... Rock Slide? Bite? You actually get a choice between Rock Slide or Ancientpower! With so many options, why not both? And since you're playing Crystal you can move tutor either Flamethrower or Thunderbolt onto him once you've beaten the game. You might think that's a waste of time, 4000 Game Corner coins, a superior attacking stat (70 vs 65), or of move slots that were otherwise going to the likes of Take Down and Screech, but then again you've already committed to using a Dunsparce, and in so doing the next step of your Pokemon journey can truly begin.

For real though, Dunsparce may have the strength of an Aipom (something else you should use) combined with the speed of a Golem, but he's still objectively better than Lickitung.

Literally any Eeveelution. No team is complete without one.

Espeon and Umbreon take too long to get and the stones aren't available yet

I haven't played Crystal in a while, but are level 30-40 Pokemon good enough for the Elite Four? Hell, are they good enough for the last few gyms?

Anyway, what about getting a Dratini and training it up into a Dragonite? Muk has a decent stat total and can learn a decent variety of elemental moves through TMs. Gyarados and Arcanine both have really good stats. Honestly, I'd suggest just checking the base stats of gen 2 pokemon and seeing which one best fits your needs.

40 is the minimum level of the e4. As for dratini, I don't have the patience to train it. It takes way too long to evolve

Also, I took out Graveler since Piloswine has better moves and anything Graveler can take out Piloswine can as well.

Go give Mr. Pokemon the Red Scale for the EXP Share, give it to Dratini, and fight the Tentacool, Tentacruel, and Mantine around Cianwood. Around 150 EXP for Tentacools (per Pokemon), 300+ for Tentacruel, and 250 for Mantine. Really great place to grind. Especially once Dragonair is strong enough to fight on its own, and you teach it an electric move.
