Luna

Luna (Japanese: ルナ Luna) is the character of the day in Curbing the Crimson Tide.

Luna is a wealthy little girl who was causing trouble in a city with her Scizor. Her Scizor remained hidden in a cape so no one knew what it exactly was. She gave it the alias Red Lightning (Japanese: 赤いイナズマ). She also put a small radio around its neck to make it appear like it was talking, causing further confusion to whether Red Lightning was human or Pokémon. She used a microphone on her laptop to provide Red Lightning's voice.

Soon Red Lightning crossed paths with May and her Squirtle. Squirtle was easily defeated with a Hyper Beam attack.

With the help of Team Rocket's balloon, Ash and his friends were able to track down Red Lightning and discover Luna's antics. Ash then challenges Luna to a Pokémon battle. First he chooses Pikachu to battle Red Lightning. When Ash realizes that he'll need a Pokémon who can scale buildings, he calls back Pikachu and sends out Sceptile. Everyone soon finds out that Luna was using the wind to make it appear that Scizor was flying. Sceptile then copies Scizor's technique. During the battle, Scizor begins to fall but Sceptile saves it.

Luna's butler then explained to them that Luna only did what she did because she was lonely. Her parents were always on business and spent very little time with her. All she had was him and her Scizor. Then May starts to relate to her and says that she sometimes misses her parents while she's on her journey.

Soon, May challenges Luna to a battle with her Squirtle. This time around, Squirtle is the victor.

After the battle, Luna promises not to cause trouble anymore. But she made May promise her that she would come visit her again someday.

Luna's Scyther

Luna's Scizor
Scyther → Scizor
Luna's Scizor, also known as Red Lightning (Japanese: 赤いイナズマ), is Luna's only known Pokémon. She owned it ever since it was a Scyther when she was young. Sometime after evolution, it caused trouble in the city and defeated many Pokémon by disguising itself as Red Lightning and was given the name. Every Pokémon that got defeated by Red Lightning got marked on. After Ash's Sceptile battled Red Lightning, Red Lightning revealed itself to be a Scizor belonging to a girl named Luna. After Luna explained everything about herself and Scizor, Scizor then had a rematch against May's Squirtle and lost. Luna then promised to not misbehave anymore.

Red Lightning's known moves are Hyper Beam, Agility and Swift.
