  220. - Use Safari Zone Carbos on Super Repel menu if you pick it up (and swap + YOLO scroll)

  223. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  224. SILPH RIVAL RED BAR GUIDE
  225. - If good Speed, use X Acc + X Special, then evaluate HP. If QA does too much, X Speed on Growlithe
  226. - If used 2 X Specials on Pidgeot, can 1-shot with IB with 5+ DV Special
  227. - With bad Special, use second one if possible. If HP is too low/high on Gyara, can risk range
  228. - Silph Rival Growlithe: 8-10 with Ember after X Special, 20-27 with Take Down (17-23 if Lv. 35)
  229. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  230. - Heal before Nidorino if can't survive 2 HA; do not heal on Nidorino
  231. - Giovanni's Rhyhorn does 15-21 damage
  232. - If HP is high enough to survive Selfdestruct, Elixer on second Juggler's Drowzee or Hypno
  233.  
  234. *ERIKA*
  235. - Remember to YOLO scroll if using Carbos normally
  236. - With proper route, should never risk any range except 98% on Vileplume
  237.  
  238. *BLAINE*
  239. - Should never risk Arcanine range
  240.  
  241. *SABRINA*
  242. - If out of PP vs. Mr. Mime, X Acc if possible (enough X Accs + PP); otherwise, Elixer
  243.  
  244. *GIOVANNI*
  245. - X Special + Leer = can 1-shot Machoke with 6+ DV Special
  246. - Leer = can 1-shot Machop with 11+ DV Special
  247. - If need to Elixer before Giovanni and only 1 Elixer left, use Elixer on the way back from Black Belt, and pick up Revive
  248. - If using Drill BB strats + X Special strats vs. Giovanni to save time, can Elixer after Giovanni to save more time
  249.  
  250. *VIRIDIAN RIVAL*
  251. - If Speed DV is 0-4 and have enough X Specials, double X Special
  252. - If NEED red bar from Rhyhorn (for YOLO Lance), use X Acc on it (subsequent turns: X Special if you have one, then TB Growlithe)
  253. - If Rhyhorn uses Tail Whip, kill it immediately
  254.

  262. - If can afford to, Potion before Onix with 14-20 HP (14-23 if bad defense)
  263.  
  264. *AGATHA*
  265. - If Aerodactyl range is a concern (i.e. good time) and can't double X Special or X Speed on it, don't X Acc
  266. - Use Full Restore before fight if one is true:
  267.         > Slower than Gengar, 15+ seconds ahead of goal time, and have 0-2 Super Potions
  268.         > Slower than Gengar, 30+ seconds ahead of goal time
  269. - If Gengar uses Confuse Ray, kill it instead of using X Acc
  270. - If Golbat uses Haze, you have an extra X Speed and HP is ~28-56, use one on Arbok
  271. - If Arbok paralyzes, heal after fight
  272.  
  273. *LANCE*
  274. - Never Ether on Dragonair
  275. - When YOLO Drill hits, use X Special + X Speed + Ether/Elixer on first Dragonair (if on risky strat, use X Speed on second Dragonair)
  276. - If time allows it, heal before Champion to HP at which Sky Attack won't kill after badge boost + Super Potion
  277.  
  278. *CHAMPION*
