...other than codes?
I haaate spending forever leveling up Pokemon after Pokemon by way of random battles, so I just thought I'd ask what others do to level up quickly.

VS. Seeker, Exp. Share, and Macho Brace combined provide a quick and healthy grinding experience combined with EV training.

Basically the same as random battles, but you can at least control what you'll fight.

VS Seeker: A key item that allows you to re-battle opponents
Exp Share: A hold item that splits exp between the holder and the pokemon that was actually battling
Macho Brace: Another hold item. It halves speed but doubles EVs, which you dont need to worry about unless you're going to start competetive battling. It has no effect on exp so i dont know why they said it.

I use lucky eggs- its a hold item that doubles exp.

Usually, at the end of the game. I pick a baby pokemon, that let's say is level.. 6?
And I put it up to battle against someone at level.. 50? And then I switch the Pokemon right away, so it doesn't have to battle the other Pokemon. So you take the weak one out of the battle, but still get credit. That's my way of doing it.

If I want to level up fast I'll throw an Experience Share on the Pokèmon in question and proceed to destroy the Elite Four mutiple times within an hour or so. I don't really level up fast these days as I'm more focused on EV training.

Yes, i am more into EV training, but if i were to try and level up and stuff, i would use Vs. Seeker or Rare Candys. Of course, they are cloned!

Dont kill pokemon with one hit

they have to give you a little bit of a challenge and you'll gain more exp

use exp share to level up your weakest pokemon and alternate it around your pokemon so everythings equal

And if you get an Exp. Share and make the little Pokemon hold it, it'll do that for you without your strong one losing the initiative by having to be sent out.

Pretty much what I do is fairly basic and common: fight the Elite Four constantly with the Pokemon awaiting level-ups holding the Exp. Share and staying in rear.

Leveling up is the fun of the game. Granted it is boring sometimes and can get old, but I prefer leveling up the "correct" way.

Though, I am not going to lie, I have used rare candies and whatnot on pokemon before to get them to where I want much faster.

VS Seeker and engaging in many battles with Wild Pokémon. I keep track where specific trainers are though when I use the VS Seeker so I know who to battle next time.

Lucky egg + Elite 4 to 1 Pokémon, and it works better if that Poké's traded to you!

and while I do that to 1 Poké, 1 is left in daycare, and eventualy grow...

Where do I go to get mass quantities of rare candies? lol
I have a ton of new traded Pokemon and I am incredibly weary of battling level 1's against Margikarp's and only getting 4EP or battling level 14's and dying in one hit and not getting any EP at all. I'm ready to cheat!
