Hypno or Kadabra in GSC?
Hello. I've started playing Pokemon Gold recently, and I've been doing fairly well. I've beaten the fourth gym leader, and my party currently consists of Quilava, Sudowoodo, Lapras, Heracross, and Kadabra. I'm still deciding who will occupy the final slot, and I could use some help for that too. But, what I really want to know is if I should keep Kadabra.
Kadabra is strong, even if it isn't fully evolved, since 105 speed and 120 special attack points are strong enough to propel it through the game. But, I was wondering if Kadabra could be replaced by a Hypno.
I'm aware that the drop in power is going to be immense, but Hypno has better defenses, and access to Hypnosis.
So, I'm wondering if it would be worth it to replace Kadabra with Hypno. It may be a sort of body blow to my team, but will it play a big role in deciding whether I win a battle or lose a battle? Would you do it?
