    Any recommendations for levels, moveset, and Pokemon for this?

    You don't need Flash to traverse the cave if you have a map. I was able to solo beat him with my Extreme Speed Dragonite at level 84, although I had other Pokemon in the party at the time so achievement didn't trigger at the time.

    You need solo run once you step in Kanto. My Typhlosion it was Lv55 after the first Elite4. Traveling with all gyms (and all trainers) of kanto get a lot of exp to grew until lv73 (it as a good level 70~75).

    My moveset it as Flamethrower, Thunderpunch (TM from Goldenrod dept store), Flame Wheel and Smokescreen.

    This one should be missable, since he goes away after you defeat him once.

    @NewWizKid He comes back after you beat the Elite Four again.

    Did this with a Level 82 Typhlosion. You can easily cheese this by using a Guard Spec then using 5 X Attacks / 5 X Specials and then wiping Red's entire team (if you outspeed all his Pokemon). Honestly the hard part of this achievement is reaching Red without the move Flash. I recommend doing this achievement before picking up the items in Mt. Silver so you have some visual reference of where you are in the cave. Otherwise you have to solely use audio cues which can be hard.

    Did this with lvl 88 Electabuzz with Thunderbolt, Fire + Ice Punches and Flash.

    I solo'd red with only quagsire in my party but I can't get the achievement to trigger. Is there a bug?

    I managed to get this achievement by bringing a Lv. 92 Espeon with Psychic, Swift, Morning Sun, and of course Flash because venturing through Mt. Silver in a pitch black screen to find Red’s room was just not something I was willing to try. I grinded at Mt. Silver until lil’ Espy got to Lv. 88 and then gave it 4 Rare Candies. It didn’t really take that long (with fast-forward on, of course) thanks to Exp. Share.

    I did this with a lvl 80 Dragonite with Thunder punch, fire punch, ice beam and extremespeed.

    this is the order you have to walk if you don't wanna use Flash.

    I did this with a lvl 80 Furret, the only move I needed was Return!

    Level 90 Ho-Oh, AncientPower/Zap Cannon/Gust/Flash and a couple full restores because snorlax has infinite luck

    Got this done with a level 68 (up to 69 in the fight) with ThunderPunch, Flamethrower, Flame Wheel and Iron Tail. Set up a Guard Spec turn 1 and got lucky with the Pikachu spamming Charm so managed to set up 4 X Specials and Swept
    radu987 4 May 2024 09:21
    Did it with level 84 lantern and 6 x specials with flash surf thunder I just saved before fighting him and if thunder missed I'd reset but I got the x items off by flashing Pikachu and using a max potion if I got low one shot everything with thunder
