Fire Red Scramble #1 Results (from LVP to MVP)
Lv.47 Lax nature
- Petal Dance
- Sleep Powder
This Poké, aside from Sleep Powder and exterminating Ground-, Rock-, and Water-types, was not very useful. It fought well, nevertheless, and was a good balance to the team. Thanks for the Poké, chomzloh.

No Repels or resetting allowed. Regardless of what it is, it may never be within 7 levels of the highest levelled member of your party. (e.g. if your highest levelled member is Lvl 40, this Pokemon may not be Lvl 32 or more.)

Lv.47 lolTimid nature
- Rock Tomb
- Rock Blast
This dude cannot take a special hit to save its life, seeing as it almost dies from the Champion's Arcanine's NFE Flamethrower, but I wouldn't have it any other way. It had a fun time soloing Agatha's ghosts, which made it more useful than Low Lassie. Thanks for the Graveler, Futachimaru.

That's why every time another one of your pokemon is hit with a super effective attack, you must switch in Primeape. Name it UMAD? IMAD
Lv.47 Lax nature
- Aerial Ace
- Low Kick
- Cross Chop
This thing can really devastate, if Cross Chop actually decides to hit. Fighting/Flying coverage is amazing, hitting the entire game except Zapdos, and piercing Koga's stupid Minimize Muk. The gimmick was frustrating, though, seeing as it couldn't survive the attacks that are super-effective against its allies. Thanks for the Primeape, kingofkongs.

Lv.47 Gentle nature
- Quick Attack
- Brick Break
- Thunder Wave
This thing, after a while of grinding, finally managed to 2HKO the Champion's Pidgeot, and for that I'm thankful. It is the fastest Poké on the team (tied with Behemoth, who is eight levels higher), which is a great asset, but there are still things that outrun it. It has a nasty Thunderbolt, too. Thanks for the Raichu, Iggdrasil.

It is also mad at you for taking it from its original Trainer, so you must intentionally simulate its disobedience by rolling a 6-sided die every other time it wants to attack. 1-4 correspond to those moves in your move list, 5 is roll again, and 6 is your choice. To let off some steam, Jynx may solo Blaine. If it does this, you may disable the die requirement for the rest of the game.
Lv.46 Mild nature
- Lovely Kiss (1)
- Psychic (2)
- Water Pulse (3)
- Ice Punch (4)
Seeing as the die gimmick was randomly choosing moves for me, I decided to put together one of the best movesets for the occasion. Lovely Kiss was a great asset, and clearly outclassed Low Lassie's Sleep Powder, despite them being the same moves with different names. Zynx was faster and could lay down a huge beating with Psychic and the special-in-3rd-gen Ice Punch. Thanks for the Jynx, Dummy007.
And finally, the MVP:

Lv.55 Bold nature
- Mega Kick
- Substitute (PP Up'd)
- Fire Blast (PP Max'd)
- Focus Punch
This thing was amazing. Obviously, it's higher-leveled than everyone else, but it was for Low Lassie's sake. Its level is not the reason I like it. Even though its only Fire-type move was Ember until it soloed Blaine, it actually performed quite well with the move. Substitute is an awesome in-game move that blocks status and works well in conjunction with Focus Punch. That and Fire Blast could at least 2HKO anything (especially Fire Blast, if it didn't miss so much). Surprisingly, I found that Mega Kick hit more than Fire Blast overall. Anyway, thanks for the Charizard, Its_A_Random.
