First, you might want to know why and how long it took for me to write this. The answers are: First, I wrote this because I could not find a guide pertaining to this subject on Psypoke and hoped that this could fill that vacancy. Second, it took three days, about two hours a day. So... either way... enjoy! :D

That's excellent! With your permission I'd like to stick that up on the main site (some time later... uh... unspecified).

There's also one other thing I'd like to add... a nice easy way of training up weak Pokemon is to have a "Bomb Squad" - let the weak Pokemon out in battle first, then switch to a strong Pokemon with Explosion. Use it and the weak Pokemon will gain all the EXP points intsead of half.

Yes, I'd be VERY VERY VERY VERY... happy to have it placed on the site. :P


I'll add a section on "Ways to Train"... just not yet. I don't really feel like getting carpal tunnel syndrome tonight. :wink: Tomorrow... I need to get off soon anyway.

There's also the Sleep Talk/Snore only trick, I think it only works with GSCRSE though.

Also i'm pretty sure Lucky Egg gives you 1.5 times the Exp. points, unless it's changed since GSC.

*Also Stickified*

First, what's the Sleep Talk/Snore only trick?

Second, Lucky Egg does double Exp. Points... I rechecked.

Edit: The new section will be called "Suggested Ways to Train" as Section 5 and people can "donate" their ways of training up levels to the cause. Wait about an hour or two.

The Sleep Talk/Snore trick is where you teach Ho-oh, Lugia and other pokes that give alot of points, only Sleep Talk or Snore.

Since the moves will fail every turn, you can knock them out to get alot Exp. Points.

Oh... or one that knows only Splash. (Gyarados)

Another way to do it is to stockpile up on Secret Bases and train there when you can.

Edit: Updated

How can I do the Harmless Enemy trick? How can I teach Ho-oh/Lugia a move? Do I have to use Gameshark?

In GSC you could, All you'd do is catch a pokemon that gives alot of Exp. Points, train it to Lv. 100 and use the Move Deleter and teach it only Snore or Sleep Talk.

In RSE I think you could do the same thing with the Secret Bases.
And there's a Move Rememberer so you can use moves like Growl, Focus Energy, Any move that doesn't hurt your pokemon.

Okay, now that I get to it...

Someone should be "in charge" of this topic (answering/adding FAQ/Training Suggestions). Who? (That I trust) (PM me)

Nooo... this is just experience points... there's already a guide to EVs and DVs.

Anyway, getting this put on the site is THE reward.

(Check the PsyLab for EVs and DVs)

I decided not to include the Pokemon Lists (they take ages to format, I'm lazy! :P) but even if I was going to include them, they'd be on the Psydex.

Thanks again, tiger10x :)

They took ages to type down... :P Maybe if you're not that busy they could just be added under each Dex page stat list... if you hadn't thought of that.

I like the site setup... it's awesome! And again, your welcome.

What do you mean by:

List of Individual Pokemon Difficulties and Exp. Stats
Here is the list of who needs what and who gives what. (Finally) I will give them in the following format. Example:


(#) (Name)
(Difficulty) (Stat)

That? Especially the "Stat " Aprt? WHich stat is it? That I don't get but the rest is OK.

# <-- Number of Pokemon (001 - 386)

Name <-- Name of Pokemon

Difficulty <-- How much exp. points required to level up to 100. (See that section)

Stat <-- Exp. Stat that determines how much exp. you get from it after a battle.

~
Does that help?

So you're saying Bulbasaur gives out 64 experience points? But isn't that dependant on the level of opponent's Pokemon?

It does. If you battle a Level 7 {caterpie} , you would get less exp. than battleling a Level 7 {geodude} . It probably depends on opponents stats. Either its stats are good or not. If good, you get more exp. If bad, you get less exp. well...i guess it doesn't depend on level. It depends on stats.
I mean. If you battle a level 7geodude, you would get more exp. than battleling a level8 caterpie. Caterpie's stats stinks and Geodude's are way better.
