First and foremost, lets start with the Pokémon: Smeargle Smeargle is a great all-round Pokémon, as it's the only one that learns Sketch. It will learn Sketch every 10 levels starting from level 1, meaning by level 31 it will have 4 moves. Sketch will permanently copy a move used in battle, meaning that Smeargle can learn almost any move. Using Sketch ...

At the opening sequence, press the following button combination: Up + B + X. This should prompt you for deleting your save file. The Up + B + Select no longer works on the X/Y series at the main menu, the button combination must be done at the opening movie sequence.

Phew. Man. This isn't super well documented. Here's what I've got: Location takes precedence over friendship: In the case that your Eevee reaches the correct friendship level while around say, the Mossy Rock, it will always attempt to become Leafeon over Umbreon/Espeon. See here. Fairy Move takes precedence over friendship: In the case that your Eevee ...

There are 18 confirmed patterns, and there are people who've managed to Catch 'Em All. Here's a YouTube video that shows them all caught: These are the locations I've managed to piece together from firsthand experience and digging all over the internet, including various forums, reddit & tumblr posts (linked below). ...

I'm sorry, but the Pokemon will retain the changed nickname. So if you have got a Pikachu you called "Pika" earlier, you may visit the house of the name rater and change it it to "Pikachu", but if it evolves it's still called "Pikachu" and not Raichu. (In Camphrier Town right after Lumiose City you will find the Name Rater in the Pokemon Center.) ...

Ditto excels at one thing in particular: scouting. Ditto allows its user to know exactly what moveset an opponent has without having to do any guesswork. This can be extremely valuable because several Pokemon can run multiple varied move sets and different roles. Determining a moveset is crucial to discovering what role a Pokemon plays in its team, and ...

Bulbapedia has the Pokemon damage formula. But the short answer is that it is multiplicative. Which attack is better depends on your opponent's defenses, but lets assume they have 100 in both Defense and Special Defense. You didn't specify a level, so I'm going to assume 50. Results below with differences in bold. For attack = (2*50 + 10)/250 * (110/100) * ...

To test this, I went to some wild grass and both killed and caught the same type of pokemon I caught a wild level 3 Pidgey with my level 6 Chespin and I was awarded 21 experience points. I killed another level 3 Pidgey while my Chespin was still level 6 and I was awarded 21 experience points. So yes, the experience is the same.

The Japanese trainers indicate IVs using the letter "V" and indicate each stat in the order they appear on the Summary of each Pokemon: H = HP A = Attack B = Defence C = Sp. Atk D = Sp. Def S = Speed If you have a 3 perfect IV Pokemon with perfect HP, Def, and Sp. Def, you would input something like: 3V HBD If you are looking for Pokemon with Hidden ...

I was very interested in your question, so I did some research. According to Bulbapedia on Moss Rock, some people have tested that location takes precedence over anything else. Even if Eevee has reached other evolutionary conditions, the Moss Rock will still cause it to evolve into Leafeon rather than Espeon, Umbreon, or Sylveon. So in your scenario, ...

Alright, I managed to find an answer after all. Here's what happened: I used light math and a well-known tool that helps with RNG abuse to craft myself 2 Pokémon on Gen V games with the following characteristics: PID 7914C235 Shiny Value 6 -> shiny PID 1B096AC5 Shiny Value 13 -> non-shiny in Gen V, theoretically shiny in Gen VI I then transferred both ...

While evolving a Sylveon for a trade, I stumbled upon a solution. Once I was ready to level up my Eevee, I noticed that he too was receiving boosted EXP. As it turns out, I had messed around Pokémon-Amie with Greninja and he ended up with 2 hearts of enjoyment. To verify this hypothesis, I played with a spare Gabite, defeating a wild pokémon after each ...

From my experience, there is no one guaranteed place that's good for rubbing (either Pokemon or otherwise...) There is one thing you can do to make sure raising your Pokemon's affection though. When you touch your stylus to the screen to rub your Pokemon, watch their expressions before you actually rub. Whenever their eyes form an upside-down U, that's a ...

When you have access to Dendemille Town, Sycamore will approach you beside a house. That house, which is near the Pokemon Center, is the house where the Move Deleter is. Talk to him and he will delete one of your Pokemon's moves.

It shows the highest IV, and its value modulo 5 (check out How do IV stats work? for information about IVs). If there are mutliple highest IVs, the value is choosed randomly depending on personality value (which is also random). It can be used to easily determine which IV is highest. Depending on value of IV, the following characteristics appear. For ...

Researching the answer to this question, I encountered two extremely helpful lists on Serebii.net: Pokémon X & Pokémon Y - Unobtainable Pokémon Pokémon Omega Ruby & Pokémon Alpha Sapphire - Unobtainable Pokémon Diligently comparing the two lists, the only Pokémon that appear on both are mythic legendairies such as Mew, Celebi, etc. Even all the ...

This is only possible in Pokémon Yellow (Pikachu only), and Heart Gold/Soul Silver (The first Pokémon in your party), where your Pokémon follow you automatically. There's also a special park on Platinum and a side-quest on Black/White 2, but these don't count as "walking Pokémon". Also in the side games Pokémon Ranger and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon ...

Two conditions must be met in order for Pancham to evolve into Pangoro: Pancham must be leveling to at least level 32. A Pokémon with the Dark type must be in your party when Pancham levels up. It doesn't matter if it is Something/Dark as long as it has a dark type.

The gender will be of normal Eevee distribution, which is to say 87.5% male, 12.5% female.

Mega Charizard X loses its Flying Type and gains Dragon Typing, affecting the Same Type Attack Bonus (STAB) of Flying & Dragon moves respectively. It also gets Tough Claws, an ability that increases the strength of physical moves. Its primary boosted stat is Attack Mega Charizard Y gains the Drought Ability (upping the power of it's fire attacks, and ...

Because most Pokemon increase their stats when evolving, you would not normally see a not-fully-evolved competitively. The most common exception to this is caused by pokemon holding Eviolite: Effect: Raises the holder's Defense and Special Defense by 50% if the holder is not fully evolved. It is important to remember that this will multiply not only ...

It doesn't as far as I know. I've been raising the affection level of some of my Pokemon since I started and have left some unattended; the affection level did not decrease over the ~70 hours of play time. There's this site/blog which says (emphasis mine): Do this five times and your Pokemon will have full Affection, meaning it will be more likely to ...

The only way to figure out is through a legitimacy checker, which can be found on the internet, but usually involves cheating to access the coding to find out. But, for the Time and Space part, all that means is that the Pokemon was from a previous game. Probably from Heart Gold or Soul Silver via means of Poke Transfer and Poke Bank. As long as it does ...

There have been no announcements even hinting at this as a possibility, but other factors make this seem highly unlikely. The underlying mechanics regarding stats and possible moves are completely different and would be difficult to translate from PoGo to the main series or vice versa. Pokemon Go is made by a different company than the main series ...
