Red’s Party Pokemon’s Battle Tree Item and Move Sets during the first battle
During your first arrival at the Battle Tree, you can challenge Pokemon Trainer Red or Pokemon Trainer Blue. Similar to the Main Story, there are no restrictions therefore you can freely use any Pokemon, level, held item, etc.
Pokemon Trainer Red’s party will consist of high-leveled Pokemon, thus you are required to increase your party pokemon’s levels first before you take on the challenge. The Pikachu Red switches out first can easily be countered with a Pokemon with the ability Lightningrod or a Ground-type Pokemon since they are immune to Electric-type moves. Therefore it is recommended to have one of these types sent out first, and if possible those which can be taught buffing moves.
Others that do not have buffing moves but belong to one of these types can be used provided that you use boosting items like X Attack to compensate for it.
Upon defeating Pokemon Trainer Red, you will obtain 9240 pokedollars.
