I'm thinking that Geodude and Diglett should switch places.
-Geodude has shit sp def and low speed.
-Despite high def, is weak to ground/fighting moves which are plentifull in some areas
-Is almost useless vs e4
-Geodudes one good use is beating Surge, and Diglett does it with massive speed and ground stab. And we can get a lvl 28-29 Dugtrio in the same cave.
-Mega Punch is highly contested by Squirtle/Nidos/Mankey/Charmander/Pikachu/Clefairy(and jigglypuff if you want to count it)
-natural EQ, and comes with Dig/Magnitude.
-Fast as Greased Lightning
-Takes care of Grass types with AA
-Rock SLide/Tomb for Flyers/Ices
-Tri Attack hits plenty of things neutrally and has a nice side effect
-We can get it at lvl 28-29 in the diglett cave en route to getting flash
-Rock Slides Loreleis Jynx, AA Brunos Hitmons, Rock SLide Agathas Golbat & EQ her Arbok.
-and stab EQ hurts Gary motherfucking Oaks nonfliers/grasses.
-Rock slide dents lances mons.
-Its like a Physical Electrode with BETTER movepool, stab and comes earlier.
Ok, lets see what they do ingame
vs Rival [1st battle in cer.}
Unless it has rock throw, its not that good
Ok, but Diglett/Duggie wins due to speed and hitting first and hard.
Geodude has to deal with double team set-up.
Both kinda fail, but Diglett/Trio is better due to no 4x weakness and secret power hitting first.
TM for secret power is in Celedon Mall
VS Giovanni [1st]
Stab Dig/Magnitude rapes his grounds, but Geodude can take Kangaskhans Mega Punch one or two more times.
VS Rival in ss anne
Geodude is slow compared to this, and this guy packs a Kadabra. If your starter was Bulbasaur, you do better.
Still, Geodude is stopped by Kadabra and Squirtle/Bulbasaur
Diglett/trio is only hindered by Squirtle/Bulbasaur
VS Rival in Ghost Tower
See above, but if Rival has Eggcecute, both mons stop in tracks.
Gyrados is handled by Rock Slide/Throw/TOmb
VS Rival in Silph CO
Geodude is slow as fuck and the only thing it can fight here is Growlithe/Pidgeot.
Dugtrio can outrun and deal with all but Squirtle/Bulbasaur/Eggxecute, and if it has AA, it can deal with the grass one.
VS Giovanni [2nd battle]
Geodude is good here, due to Giovanni using rock/ground and poison/grounds. And can take Kanga's hits.
Dugtrio still performs well, and could have EQ by now.
Outspeeding low def psychics and hitting with AA/EQ is what Dugtrio does to her
Geodude can deal with Venomoth, but the other 3 shit over it
Kinda more or less even, but Geodude has more HP and better defense
Even with 4x Res to fire, Geodude is outrun here, and stab fire blasts hurt its crap sp def.
Dugtrio outruns and EQs
VS Giovanni [gym]
Geodudes weak to EQ, nuff said.
Its slow, and will get asswhooped.
Dugtrio is doing more, due to earlier EQ than Geodude, and outrunning everything.
VS Rival [pre-road battle]
Geodude gets raped by ll but Rhyhorn/Growlith/Pidgeot
Dugtrio is fast enough to take Alakazam, Charizard, Pidgeot, Growlithe and Rhyhorn, as well as making a huge dent on the Grasses/Gyrados.
Geodude wants no part of this
Geodude can deal with the onix, but so can almost anything.
Dugtrio, doesn't sport that fighting weakness.
And can AA/EQ the low def hitmons and 2-3HKOs Machamp
Geodude can deal with Arbok and Golbat by EQ/Rock Slide/Tomb/blast
Dugtrio deals the same way and Rock Slides Haunter and could outrun the Gengars!
Fast mons, all flying, and pack EQ or a powerful SP att base move
Dugtrio outruns them and does damage, Geodude gets IBeamed, EQd, Hydro Pump'd, DClawed and Outraged.
Pidgeot-both are even
Arcanine-Dugtrio does better due to being faster. Geodude is slow as fuck, low sp def, and cannot survive 2 hits
Gyrados-Rain Danced Hydro pump or DDd EQ. equal, because on set-up, GDUDE can blow up. Duggie Rock Slides
Alakazam-Duggie does better. EQ and having better speed
Charizard-Duggie does better, unless a lvl 48-51 GDude can take a Fire Blast.
Venasaur-Both suck, but Duggie does more damage.
Walking coconut tree-Duggie again, because Geodude doesn't want to be hit by solarbeam or psychic.
Blastoise-both fail, but Gdude can explode!
Rhydon-Duggie wins due to fast EQ
So, I believe that Duggie>Geodude
