This post was about the Pokemon’s most popular Poison from Johto, the players would be happy to read this article.
Ariados can just fall behind really quickly in any Pokemon Gold run. The only reason this is more popular than Qwilfish is that it’s featured in Koga’s Elite Four battle. Players can go collect the eight gym badges in Johto and not even know of Ariados’ existence. Game Freak even gave this Pokemon a signature move in Sticky Web. Unfortunately, though, it doesn’t have the best stats or movepool either. It’s exclusive to Pokemon Gold, and even then the only way to catch it is at night at Route 30. This is a shame, though, since Ariados is actually a pretty cool Pokemon with an interesting design.
Crobat is a perfect example of taking a slightly lack-luster Pokemon and improving on it to make it way more valuable. If not for anything else, Crobat is the most popular Poison-type Pokemon simply because it was an extra evolution to Zubat, one of the most common Pokemon in the game. With Crobat, players could get access to a very powerful Pokemon early on. This new evolution was a large step up from Golbat, with considerably more speed and power behind it. It can be a pleasant surprise when Golbat levels up at some random point and begins to evolve. In Johto, Zubat can be found as early as the Dark Cave, east of Violet City.
The players could only use Qwilfish for the final quarter of the game anyways. Qwilfish is absent through most of the Johto Region. There is one fisherman on Route 42 by Mt. Mortar who uses a Qwilfish in battle. The only way to catch this is to bring a Super Rod to Route 32 (or a couple of Routes in Kanto) and try to fish for it.
