I've soloed the game with Meganium easy. The secret is that if you're soloing a game, the Pokemon your soloing it with will be at such a high level that it will just stomp through everything on it's path. Stats, movepool and typing become completely irrelevant because you're just too damn fast and hit too damn hard for anyone to come close to beating you (people have soloed the game with Magikarp, to give you an idea of what I mean)They all have their ups and downs, their 'class'. I'm assuming you're going to evolve them.
Meganium is a supporter, Feraligatr is a Physical Tank (ATK/DEF), and Typhlosion is a Special Sweeper.
If you're going to solo the game, Meganium, I think, is out of the picture because it's typing has many weaknesses and it's offensive stats aren't that great.
It's not worse or better than the others. It's different. She takes a defensive approach, which means that she won't hit as hard but will take plenty more hits. The strategy's not as fast, but just as effective.Despite what people say, Chikorita isn't all that bad. I had one in a previous save and really enjoyed training one. I would consider one if you have room for a mixed defender/supporter or just like it.
Despite my sentiments towards it, it isn't as good as the other two.
Pryce's Pokemon are all composed of part Water types. Meganium hits them super effectively. Moreover, she's the only Starter that can hit Clair's best Pokemon (Kingdra) with her STAB and not get laughed at. She can also take out Gyarados the same way, unlike both Typhlosion and Feraligatr.First of all, stay away form Chikorita. You'll have a hard time with most the gym leaders if you solo it. Heck, I'm not sure you'll pass Pryce.
We're talking about soloing the game, aren't we? In that case, it really doesn't matter since all the experience from all the trainer battles will go to her. She'll be just as able to take out the first few opponents as Totodile and Cyndaquil with the same battle experience.but you would have to train meganium to a higher lvl then the other two at the start.
