Help with creating a semi-random/rotating variable

I’m trying to create a pokemon fangame in my free time, but I suck at using Harlowe/Twine and need help. I want the player to be able to choose one of 3 pokemon, however these links rotate so that on your second playthrough you may have different options than on your first. How would I go about making this? (I know this is very basic, but this is my 3rd time ever using Twine)

Other people might have better ideas, but this is one way you could do it:

In a startup passage:

(set: $option1 to (either: "pikachu", "charmander", "bulbasaur"))
(set: $option2 to (either: "evee", "squirtle", "magicarp"))
(set: $option3 to (either: "cottonee", "cutiefly", "meowth"))

And then in the passage where they choose their pokemon:

(link-reveal-goto: "$option1", "passage2")[(set: $pokemon to $option1)]
(link-reveal-goto: "$option2", "passage2")[(set: $pokemon to $option2)]
(link-reveal-goto: "$option3", "passage2")[(set: $pokemon to $option3)]

Thank you so much! I tried this, and it works perfectly.
