Yeah, you need to your AR sparingly or you risk getting carried away. :P

Or not at all, Boo! Hiss!

I have a question; I waited until my Growlithe was level 48 to evolve it. Does this mean, at level 100, it will have the same stats as a Growlithe evolved at a much earlier level?

If not, would I have to breed the moves I levelled it up for onto a new Growlithe, and start again?

Yes, the stats will be the same. Base stats come out the same no matter what level you evolve your pokemon at. The only sources of variation in pokemon stats are EVs, IVs, and Natures.

Yeah, base stats rock.

And apparently there is no reason to keep pikachu from evolving after you like the moves, ain't like the olden days at all, nope.

And stats can drop sometimes, nincada has more defense than ninjask, and murkrow and scyther are faster until they evolve too. But it's almost always better to evolve later, so 48 is good. I should have let my shiny ponyta evolve at 50... Gonna have to send it to 100 eventually now.

Hurrah.

I trust the same is true for the Beldum I just caught.

Yeah, I'm pretty proud.

... But you'll want to evolve Beldum as soon as possible, won't you? It doesn't learn any moves either than Take-Down while it's a Beldum.

Yeah, but you can only catch it at level 53, long past it's natural evolution level.

Beldum can't breed, unfortunatley.

Except that, like Magnemite and all its genderless friends, it can, with ditto.

Or at least Metagross can, anyway.

Yeah, metagross can breed with ditto, almost anything can. But not legendaries (with the exception of Manaphy to get Phione.) and unown. I dunno about the Nidos.
...
Is Beat Up any good on Ambipom? Seems weak to me unless it's a 6vs6 battle.

Is the Math for Technician-Double Hit 35+100%(50%+50%)=70x2=140?
or is it:
35+50% = 52.5+50% = 78.75x2 = 157.5?
Return is 104 power, 156 with STAB. That's a whole 1.5 power less... lol..

Also.. Is there anything more unique than a shiny spinda?

Edit: Hehehe, I now have twelve level 50 fully EVd Shiny Pokémon. And a level 61 Shiny Rhyperior with Rock Solid ability! Hahahahaha!!..

I got 5 Beldum stored in one of my boxes that say otherwise.

Well, of course some Pokémon must evolve to a non-pathetic form to breed, beldum, pichu, etc. you know, the baby pokémon. (yes. beldum is a baby.)

All baby pokémon are first forms, but not all first forms are babies. Yup.

good luck anyways. (jes bloom'n 'volve a bleed'n beldum to ah bleed'n metagross.)


Pickup is awesome. 60+ rare candies. Legal. WOOT! I only use them on rare/lazy occasions. or to get a 49 to 50.

rare candy is one way to check for IVs so its a good thing to have. Plus once you max out EV rarecandy is a pretty good way to max out especially once you get to about lvl 70 when level up is a pain in the bum.
