Don't forget Starmie. In RBY Starmie and Alakazam were literally what lead to everyone using Chansey. :/

I don't think Jynx and Exeggcute are great choices. Jynx doesn't have great stats, and you can't get it for a while. On the other hand, Exeggcute actually gets weaker (in my opinion) as it evolves. Alakazam is the best bet, but Starmie is good too. Hypno and Slowbro are the next best... unless you're using Mewtwo or Mew, of course. As far as Fighting types go, I like them, but they just aren't as good. Machamp is obviously the best (at least I think he pwns), and the Hitmon duo are behind him. Right behind the Hitmons (or maybe even before them) is Poliwrath, and then Primeape. However, if you want a Fighting, stick with Machamp. I mean, he has four freaking arms!

In RBY Exeggutor was a staple. One of the best leads in the game since he had the ability to Sleep Powder the opponent's lead and then Explode on whatever switched in after. The fact that he had a ground resist in a Metagame where Golem and Rhydon were on EVERY FREAKING TEAM is a big plus too. :]

Good point. I was actually thinking of G/S/C by accident though. *beaten by mob for being the umpteenth person to affiliate G/S/C with this thread* Exeggutor was never one of my favorites, but he was fairly important in person-to-person battles. However, I just used Butterfree because ground attacks didn't even hit it, and it could Sleep Powder too, with better speed. It couldn't Expolde and was weak to rock but, whateva.
