    I do the E4. Over 100k cash without the OPower for prize money and good experience using the XP OPower. Credits are easy to get past, when it starts scrolling, hold A and it speeds up. Just be sure to have a flyer with you.

      Nope. Its now a level 17 Charmeleon and I'm training its Speed and its speed is 33 and I added 12 EVs into it and noticed nothing increased, even though the Super Training chart says otherwise the actual stats are not increasing.

      Ah, I've realised the answer to your problem. You get one extra stat point for every four EVs at Lv.100. A Pokemon on a low level will need more EVs before you notice any stat increases. Even 12 is probably not enough.

      In previous generations the game was automatically saved after your team is registered in the Hall of Fame, so you could soft reset to skip the credits and when you loaded the game again you'd be back in your room. I'm not sure if this is still the case in X and Y, but I would expect so.

        Yeah I had a go at chasing it but by the time I got to its location, it had moved again. Any useful hints on tracking it down?

        Like R/S/E, the Pokedex tracks down the location of the roaming legends. It moves if you Fly to a new location or if you can't get to the legend's location fast enough.

Or do all the values have to have equal numbers or add up to a certain number or something? -confused-
        You can't see IVs (individual values); these are hidden numbers that are generated when you breed the Pokemon or catch it in the wild. There's one value for each stat, ranging from 0 to 31. They don't change as the Pokemon levels up, they are just added to the Pokemon's stats, the numbers you see in the Pokemon's page. Basically a Pokemon will have higher stats the higher his IVs; for example a level 50 Pikachu with a value of 31 in Sp. Atk. will have a higher Sp. Atk. stat that a level 50 Pikachu with only 10 in Sp. Atk.

        Again, you can't see IVs, they are hidden. You can go to the Kiloude City and ask the IV judge there; his ratings have been explained earlier in this trade many times

        It is. Unless you beat it for the first time, in which case you have to face AZ again, but that's probably irrelevant.

        PlatinumDude pretty much covered all that can be said. It's pretty hard to chase down, and very frustrating. I gave up purposefully chasing it after about an hour of trying. Instead I went around catching all the other Pokemon I needed to complete the Kalos Dex, and I ended up bumping into it 12 times through doing that. So my advice, as ridiculous as it sounds: let it come to you Unless you have the patience to run around after it all day.

          Possible dumb question..... I have a level 100 mawile that I need to reconfigure the EVs for. If I use a reset bag and rebuild him EV wise, will it have any effect, or will I need a new mawile?

            Yes, you can use the Reset Bag and retrain your Mawile, because the stats will be recalculated at the end of each battle, so the new EVs will be applied.

            Depends on the Dragon Pokemon. What are you currently breeding/plan to breed?

                Hello everyone,

                I'm new here so I hope that this is the right place to post my question. Just recently finished Pokemon X and luckily enough I received a Male Ralts with 5 perfect IVs with only Spd missing through a wonder trade. I ended up breeding that with the female Ralts that Diantha trades. It took me about three hours and 3 boxes to get my ideal Ralts but it was worth it.

                A Modest Female Ralts with Synchronize and 6 perfect IVs.

                Now, what do I do? Do I EV train this? Can I just Super Train this with my chosen stats? Do I just normally go through training and leveling and ignore EV training and super training?

                How do each of them really affect the Ralts since I still don't fully understand the end result of EV training other than higher stats.

                Please help, I really don't know where to go from here.

                  The new release date for American/European Poke Bank hasn't been announced yet. It's best that you wait until the Pokemon Company and/or Nintendo announce it.

                    What you do naturally depends on your preferences. You will get your EV's regardless, but if you want to specialize your PKMN (which is recommended), EV-training in particular stats is essential.


                    What I usually do is to either get a lot of Pokemiles through wonder trading and thus use them through mileage club (you get twice as many rare candies there!). I spend them on rare candies and give them to the bred PKMN. After the level 90-gain, I usually start EV training.

                    But you can start whenever you want, really.

                      I thought you lost stat points or EVs or something when you used rare candies? I don't know, maybe I read something wrong. But I've always stuck to the 'Defeat as many trainers and the Elite Four over and over and over again until I have Level 100 Pokemon' Method, so I'm biased.

                      That's a myth.

                      What happens in the older games (prior to Gen V) is, once you reach level 100, you cannot gain any more EVs. Using rare candies to level up does not grant any EVs, so naturally Pokemon who gained experience "normally" would have better stats than those who were fed rare candies to level 100.

                      Now you don't have to worry about that as even if you're level 100, you can still EV train and in XY you can even keep track of your EVs in Super Training.

                        1st thing I normally do is figure out the Pokemon I want on Pokemon Showdown, so I get the exact desired result.

                        After getting the perfect Pokemon I Super Train the EVs to my desire before doing any battling because if you do battles it will start filling in your EVs automatically. Once you fully train @ level 1 then it is set for life.

                        Also, don't forget you can get moves for Pokemon after they evolve with Heartscales that they don't learn from leveling. Example: Charizard can learn Air Slash listed as a level 1 learned move. After that you just need to level him to 50 to be fully ready for competitive battles.

                          Is it compulsory to save every single time you make a Wonder Trade? Is there a way to turn this off? The constant saving gets a bit annoying.

                            If they didn't make you save every time you did it people could trade then turn their game off/on and still have the traded Pokemon :O. So it is mandatory to keep things legit, no way to avoid that.
