Mirre (Togekiss) - Level 42
Nature: Sassy, Item: Charti Berry
- Shock Wave (to replace Extrasensory)
- Metronome (he may use it now)
- Ancient Power
An Absolute Beast! It soloed Chuck and Karen; When Ancient Power got the speed boosts it was my only hope of taking out Nasty Plot Houndoom. The challange itself was nice too, I liked all the little mini quests that could be completed in a small run (Although I stand by my actions of not doing the pokethlons 7x for this one. Charm ruined Lance's Gyarados, opening the chance for Santa to open his bag of X-items. I rarely used Metronome, but the few times I was allowed to were fun. It wants Airslash for Christmas!
DrummerBoy (Typhlosion) - Level 42
Nature: Jolly, Item: Charcoal
- Lava Plume
- Fire Blast
- Focus Blast
He soloed Falkner, Jasmine and Koga. Lava Plume was awesome to burn stuff, I only needed Fireblast to OHKO Steelix (I suspected Flamewheel to fail). I guess Choice Scarf Eruption would have been nicer, but Sunny Day Fire Blast was good enough on him.
Rudolph (Stantler) - Level 42
Nature: Gentle, Item: Brightpower
- Calm Mind
Why Stomp? Because it's just that awesome. It always seems to flinch or crit on me, so I'm dead afraid to replace it. I got haxed by way to much Miltank and Rapidash with this crappy move to underestimate its ability to hax. Flash is mandatory and pretty awesome for helping a team mate complete a solo. He was useful soloing Morty and Will using Calm Mind. In his final solo, Flash and Brightpower were actually pretty nice. He was a true boss mid-game, but started to decline once Drummerboy and Mirre evolved. Intimidate made the lead restriction pretty fun, and he lead the team through the Rocket Admins and Rival Battles (I ended up soloing most gyms.. )
Lights (Victreebel) - Level 42
Nature: Bashful, Item: Shell Bell
- Razor Leaf
- Solar Beam
- Sleep Powder
- Sunny Day
Weepinbell even looks like a christmas light. Good choice. He really wants Sludge Bomb and for Christmas, I was too lazy to go and find it. He solo'd Pryce with a whole lot of luck (and a few resets) and horribly failed to solo Bruno. That Hitmonlee with his Blazekick was a real hinderance to my team. It seemed to get 100% confuse rate on Swagger and left me switching around all the time. Unfortunately there wasn't a proper double battle to do with Rudolph. He ninja'd Bruno's onix nicely with his Sunny Day.
Santa (Delibird) - Level 44
Nature: Bashful, Item: A bag with Presents and a fake beard (duh!)
Yeah, I couldn't really be bothered to grind him with Present. Save that sort of thing for my next hard scramble, eh! He did solo two of Clair's pokemon using only Present and Attract. And in the end he even soloed Lance!! This guy is definitely MVP material!! Oh wait, he needed ALL X-Items I had left in my bag to do that :( Meh, he could have been way worse had I stuck with present and might have ended up a glorified HM-slave. So in that respect, good ol' Santa turned out to be quite the asset to the mini-scramble.
