Many boast of having lvl 100 Pokemon, how do you get up to that sort of level? Once I get to lvl 50+ it becomes very hard to train, I have battled all the trainers around Hoen and rebattled those that want a rematch, all that seems left is to kill wild Pokemon in Victory Road and defeat the Elite four over and over and even then it just gets harder and harder to lvl up not to mention repetetive and dull.

There is nothing else that I know of, other than to keep on battling wild pokemon and the Elite Four.

use the vs seeker on the trainers on victory road or trainers who had pokemon in their 40's
and they should be on a higher level when you battle them using vs.seeker or yes you can just beat the elite four over and over and over you get the idea that's how i usually get my pokemon to high levels and i never get them all them on Lv100 round about 70 or 80 and my starter on 100.

Several ways of getting more exp fast:
*Trade onto another game for the traded bonus
*Train them in FRLG, where the elite four are higher levels
*Attatch a lucky egg, a hold item which doubles Exp gained

Not much else you can do really, just run through the elite four millions of times. I had to beat them 400+ to get a team of 6 100s on RSE, but far less on FRLG.

My VS Seeker is my friend. It's probably the most-used item of mine besides my bike in LeafGreen. I just find a spot near a good healing area like that Chansey guy's house in FRLG or the Ember Spa, save, and start training. I don't beat the E4 over and over again because I have to use a ton of money to buy items for each run.

Many bouts with the "Elite" Four Five when you include the Champ.

Here's something though: As you go through your travels, fight every wild Pokemon you encounter, instead of running.

Yeah, I've pretty much done everything everyone above has mentioned.

Those of us who don't cheat rely heavily on the VS Seeker...I try to use it constantly in the Sevii Islands. And yeah, it's hard to battle the E4 over and over again because of the money problem...
My highest level in firered right now (I just got FR a couple months ago, but I've already beat LeafGreen and my starter is at level 91. I'm satisfied.) is at 74...so don't worry. It's hard work levelling them up after they've hit 50.

In firered, i go to the area before mt. ember and fight the karate guys there.
its a great place because ember spa is right next to it, so i won't have to waste as much time going to the poke center to heal and go all the way back.
my highest level was my level 65 haunter(i was using an emulator so i couldn't evolve) and my level 80 mewtwo.
In R/S/E, i either fought the E4 or fought in the top floor of sky pillar.
there was very few places to train up, but i still got a level 100 groudon from it.

I generally keep battling the Elite 4 over and over again until I get sick of it. It's a nice way of earning more money to buy stuff like TMs, but it can get very monotonous and tedious. When I get tired of the Elite 4, I generally battle where high leveled pokemon are like the Sky Pillar, Victory Road, Cerulean Cave, and other places. If you spend enough time there, you might get lucky and spot a shiny pokemon. That's happened to me before. The VS seeker is also good for rematches, but I prefer the Elite 4.

An easy trick is to just use traded pokemon or pokemon with a lucky egg to boost up Exp points earned. The easiest way of leveling up to 100 is just using a lot of rare candies. If you have a pokemon with the Pickup ability, you can get rare candies. That might be easier if you have an entire team of Zigzagoons and Phanpy. :)

I usually get my Pokémon up to the level of the Elite Four's, then after that, train in the area with the strongest wild Pokémon or just spam the Elite Four constantly.

In many cases, my first Level 100 is my starter, who I give unprecidented attention to.

um isn't it kinda obvious you battle people, and after that use the vs. seeker to battle them again, that or keep taking on the elite four. if all else fails use an AR

Two ways that I did not see mentioned yet:

1. Secret Base Trainers. Grab a friend (or possibly yourself), put some high-leveled pokemon on his/her/your cart, and mix records. I have a number of random secret bases on my game; even the ones whose pokemon are low-leveled still give a solid amount of EXP.

2. Item Cloning Glitch on Emerald. Use it for Rare Candies; a small amount of cheating
cloning work, and you'll have enough candy to level scads of pokemon to the top instantly. (Just be sure you've acquired all your EVs first.)

Man, My sister took her Blastoise to level 94 easily. I got and idea, If you have a friend who has Pokemon Emerald, tell him to clone RARE CANDIES and trade them over.
I raise my Pokemon in Pkmn Emerald by giving them a lot of rare candies.

you can try this if you want.

all you need is a pokemon with explosion(lvl 50 or above for sure shot kill) and TM17(Protect)and some revives. If you want to earn money just add amulet coin

all you have to do is battle the reporters again and again,
first use protect on your high level pokemon and then use explosion
on your another pokemon after doing this the expirience that your fainted pokemon (because of explosion) got will be passed to you high level pokemon that uses protect. 1500 for Magneton and 1700 for exploud total of 3200exp per battle.

it can even be faster if you trade your pokemon to another version and if you have a Lucky Egg

The location of the pokemon Reporters.

Right side of lavaridge town below the desert.
Right side of mauville just surf to other side and you will see them
Right side of foretree city just walk to the right until you see them
and then back to lavaridge

you can also do this on you low level pokemon. it can reach lvl 50 in less than 30mins

Thanks for all the replies, this is on Ruby so there is no VS seeker, I was already battling Gabby and Ty, so I'll just continue doing that, and I will trade some over to Fire red when I get nearer to completing it.

Fact: Most Pokémon take as much EXP to train from level 1 to 79 as from 79 for 100. So at level 79, you're not 79% done, but only half way.

Anyway, I have Emerald so I now just mass-clone rare candies. But if you don't feel like doing it that way, or don't have Emerald, then there's two main ways.
The first is continuous E4 battles. I trained my first Salamence that way. If you can 1HKO all their Pokémon, and turn animations off, it takes around 15 minutes tops per run-through. My record is 12 minutes, I think.

Another way is to do secret base battles. This is only really viable if you have a few friends with high-leveled Pokémon or multiple games and GBAs. If you visit a friend's secret base after mixing records with them, you can battle a CPU trainer who uses the Pokémon they had when they mixed records. However, you can only do this once a day, and if you lose, you can't battle them again that day even if you reset the game. It also doesn't work unless you've beaten the E4 already, which I assume you have.

On the positive side, if you can get 5-10 secret bases using Pokémon of levels 80 and up, you can level your own Pokémon quite fast. It helps if you get them to use Pokémon with high base EXP rates, such as starters, legendaries, and Chansey/Blissey.

Finally, there's a trick to battling is secret bases more than once a day - mix records with someone. Every time you mix records, it resets the bases, meaning you can battle all the secret base trainers, mix records, battle them all again, and repeat. Of course, this is only viable if you have multiple RSE games, multiple GBAs, and a link cable.

I use the E4 a lot of the time. I am a fairly lucky trainer as i got Pokerus from a Bidoof. I tend to use the VS Seeker more than ANY other item in my BAG.

I have gotten over 20 Lucky Egg's because i used to hunt Chansey trying to get Calm natured one

The secret base battle sounds like a good idea, I'll do that aswell

Wichu
August 4th, 2008, 02:20 AM
Anyway, I don't really tend to level my Pokémon as much any more, due to the level 50 and 100 modes on D/P's Wi-fi. But you still need to level for moves and to evolve...

Well, good luck with the training - I can't do secret base battles any more, since I don't have another GBA, and my Emerald has the Berry Glitch (wasn't that supposed to be fixed?) so they won't battle me.

Guillermo

Quick Question...What is the Berry Glitch?

Back on topic i always train against people with Gyarados as they go down with 1 electric move but they give out so much EXP points xD

Wichu
August 4th, 2008, 03:23 AM
The berry glitch is a glitch which occurs in R/S after you've had it for a year. It stops the game's internal clock, meaning that no berries can grow (hence the name), among other things. It's supposed to have been fixed in Emerald, but in my Emerald game, it doesn't register days as passing, though the clock still works. It's probably a different glitch altogether, but it has practically the same effect.

Guillermo

That would suck then. Imagine if that happened in Diamond/Pearl and you didn't vs the girls in Hearthome City Gym and didn't see Drifloon. You'd be screwed

The only Lv. 100 pokemon I ever had was a Pikachu (the starter Pokemon in Yellow). I was constantly getting Pwned by Brock and therefore trained Pikachu like crazy in the Viridian forest (before I discovered the wonders of Pidgeotto and Butterfree). So by the end of the game, Pikachu Pwnz.

I'm playing Leaf Green at the moment. I'm also trying to find a way around Training and levelling up -- to tell the truth I'm at my wit's end. So far cheats (I use LoadingNOW's Action Replay 3) seem to be working. So I got to train a Phanpy at the start of the game (along with Squirtle and Pidgey/Pidgeotto), and I'm able to buy items...BUT there are no 'EXP.' cheats for Leaf Green and AR3/Gameshark Advanced.

I've seen those cheats where people claim that your pokemon get either 5000 or 99999 EXP after a battle, regardless of the level of the enemy pokemon -- didn't work; the cheats were either fake, not compatible (with game or cheat device) and for another game.

And I don't really use Rare Candies. Last time, I used 5 rare candied on a Lv. 28 Pikachu and it got pwnt by a Pidgey. So when my pokemon level up, I only use 2 or 3 Rare Candies on them.

Does anyone know where I can get some cheats for levelling up? Seriously, it's really frustrating!! D: *about to cry*

if all else fails use an AR

How?

Pretty much, the VS. Seeker, the league(FR/LG)
Lucky egg, or traded Pokemon.

I only have Lvl. 94 Rayquaza, Blaziken and Groudon. I am owning the E4 with an Exp. Share to Evolve the weaklings and fill the pokedex...
That takes double time from just doing it WITHOUT Exp. Share...


And you can fix the Berry Glitch bu linking with FR/LG and pressing Down+SELECT or something like that on the titlescreen and resetting the game after following the instructions

I have another idea, I don't use it anyway. If your friend has a 100 lv. pokemon and it knows a move like howl. Just ask your friend(if he has emerald), clone a 100 lv pokemon and then teach it howl etc. you battle that pokemon by using your best attacks while he should only use howl.

But I clone rare candies, simplest idea ever!

The VS seeker would have great to have in R/S/E. Late in the game, before the Elite 4, I'm usually stuck with training my Pokemon the traditional (and boring) way; fighting wild Pokemon in Victory Road. It was especially frustrating the last time in Sapphire, because I actually decided to use a Magcargo of all Pokemon for my Fire-type, and the thing is so slow that Pokemon 10-15 levels lower were still attacking first. Last time I ever use one of those. xD

Sigh, thread revival againnnn. D: I'll let this one go, considering it's only a few days past and there seems to be discussion happening again in it.

groudonlover, you really need to take a look at the rules (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=91723) before you keep posting. This is the THIRD thread.
