IPod typing is so slow -_-..... Newby noob: For Pearl, take a Blisssy named "Lulzy". Must have a final moveset of Calm Mind and three attacking moves. Only evolution restrictions are that you need to evolve from Happiny during the battle with Malene, and evolve from Chansey during the battle with Candice. For FireRed, take a Pikachu named "Easter" to save you from your water weakness. Following the story of Easter (sorta), Pikachu has only three real life days to construct it's final moveset. You can however choose when these three days will commence, with Pikachu being unable to learn any moves past it's first four until then. Oh, and have it sOlo Misty. Gl and have fun.
