    i said it was a bit slower then other generations but leveling a party at the same time pretty much beats anything, thats why i said "easier"


    the battle-chateau is the absolute best place to level @ it's max rank (level 80+ with the black invitation)



    Forgot to mention the Audino trainers that show up from time to time @ the chateau

    That's pretty lame. It doesn't make sense to give you an item after end game when multiple Pokemon can use it prior to end game.

    Hard stone?? I hate those stones. They sell for 50 pokedolars (or 500 if you went to the guy up in BW).

    Here's how I went about with my first (Heliolisk):

    1. Catch a few ralts>Make ralts egg's for synchronizer modest, adamant, jolly, timid nature etc. One time thing only this first time.

    2. Now go out and catch a decent IV Heliolisk, that has a 50% chance off the nature being correct cause off synchronizer.

    3. Now you got a heliolisk with average IV's, correct nature. Now give it everstone, so all egg's spwans with modest nature.

    4. Get a pokemon with good IV's to breed it with. This can also be another modest heliolisk.

    5. Skip 3 and 4. Catch a heliolisk straigth from the wild, hoping the IV's we're okay. I have done this before, and its okay.

    6. Now make egg's with the modest female heliolisk holding everstone + The good IV male pokemon holding Destiny knot, its nature dosen't matter. Actually gender dosen't matter if you breed the same pokemons together, but if you didn't it did matter

    7. Have flamebody inn your team. I suggest volcarona, cause it can also learn fly.

    8. Every 5 egg's you hatch now, you go to the IV person, so it can valuate them for you. This is why volcarona is nice, for fly.

    9. If you make a decent pokemon under 1 full box off egg's, witch is useally where I stop. so I'm not to bored, then good for you. Else you can just be happy with an OK one, like I useally am.

    10. Use the new supertraining for EV's...Easy and fast. And then look up movepools etc. Ofcourse you did this as you decided what pokemon you wanted ^^
    You could make it even easier by finding someone with a ditto in the friend safari. Having 3 Perfect IVs (maybe 4-5 if ur lucky) guaranteed is extremely useful for breeding. With that and destiny knot, getting 5 IVs doesn't take long. Getting the 2 pokemon with 5 IVs and destiny knot will allow you to mass produce the same 5 IV pokemon to trade with others or to breed under the same egg grp and enjoy the breeding shortcut.

    If you want perfect IVs, well you have a bit less than 1/31 (0.5% I believe) chances in getting it; if ur crossing 2 5IV parents.Higher chance than previous gen by a long shot.

    X/Y breeding is far easier than it was in Gen 4 I remembered. Destiny knot is a god send and atm my X/Y team is beating the pants of my SS team in terms of stats.

    I would go with x because you have much better ones to get. Not sure if there are any zone changes like in black and white.

  8. #1828
    I see, thanks. Is it possible to get the Y exclusives through trading? Tyranitar was and is a personal favourite.

    Sure ditto trick is great, but not easy getting that ditto
    One reason for WoW decline I often hear is that its an old game and naturally people get bored with it. But TV is much older and people still watch that. Surely if a thing you once enjoyed keept staying fun, you would still use it?

    Pokemon Wonder Trade stories!

    My first experience with Wonder Trade was a good one. I caught some random pokemon, and I put it up for trade. I was given a Vulpix (Level 1, clearly bred.) Along the way, if I caught what was listed as a "Rare" find on Bulbapedia I would throw it up for wonder trade, subsequently the pokemon I was given - Tentacool, Litleo(Bred), Litleo(Bred), Scatterbug, Sneasal, and Honedge.

    After I got these trades, I put it my head to go find a Ditto, and then do something nice to those who traded bred Pokemon, and maybe even help someone out along the way!

    I bred Charmanders out, 6 of them, out of the egg, ready to go, one with 11 health, and 6 on all its stats. I plan on doing this every couple days or so... The next time I breed out six, I'm doing Zoroark, (Zorua), and I'm sending them away.

    The results of tonight's set of 6, was -

    Farfetch'd - Electrike - Lunatone - Combee (Bred) - Growlithe (Bred) - Lunatone

    I have a Vespiquen, but I was super happy with the Growlithe. I'd like to see some more stories of Wonder Trade, good, bad, or neutral!

    {I'll be posting the results of the Zorua Wonder Trade 6 when I do it.}

    I was breeding Torchics and really needed a female with speed boost ability to speed things up (pun not intended). Anyway I decided to wonder trade one of my 3 IV Torchics as opposed to releasing it and what did I get. A 3 IV Female Torchic with Speed boost. Probably halved the time it would normally have taken to get the 5 IV torchic

    What's the point of the berry orchard? Is there anything useful about it?

    The sarcasm is strong in this one. To answer your question without being a smart ass Wakwazu, there are several berries that are used for competitive battling. It's useful for that.

    Thank you! It's hard filtering out what activities to do in game that aren't specifically for building competitive Pokemon.

    I haven't played since Red/Blue, and all of these mini-games and side-objectives are overwhelming :P

    I've been using the same Adamant ditto since Emerald. All it does is sit in the daycare.

    Well, before I begin, I have no expectations of getting good Pokemon through Wonder Trade, and as I mentioned, I'm sending out these rarish, bred pokemon in hopes of getting someone just starting off something amazing, giving a decent pokemon to someone giving our decent pokemon, or giving a rarish pokemon to someone with bad luck.

    That being said - I did not do well tonight. But I did better than last night. On the menu tonight was a pack of 6 Zorua. None of them had the perfect IV breed, but they were level one, and ready for love. In return, I received...

    Gourgeist (bred) - Bunnelby - Whismur - Lickitung (bred) - Zigzagoon - Pansage.

    The two bred pokemon were welcomed with open arms. I didn't have either of them. The other four I had caught along the way, or I had no interest in.

    Still looking for more stories! I'm not sure what I'm breeding out next, but I was thinking of doing a stack of 6 Froakie. Which, if it makes it to a trainer just starting out will give them a big ole' smile. What do you guys think? I'm open to breeding suggestions to pass out on Wonder Trade in packs of six too.
