Pansear I received before the first gym champion was really too bad.
With him, I couldn't OS a grass or bug type 6-7 levels lower than pansear (I precise the pokemon hold a coal to boost his fire attack). Pansear need 3 or more attack to beat his opponent.
I catched another one in the mooving grass and it's the same... he's not really strong. I am sad with this pokemon.
Finally, I think elementary monkeys are not for me.
I look forward to meet another Fire pokemon.
