i cherish all my 'Mons. none of them are tools just to fill the dex.

well, i don't cherish the 10 or so Bunnelbys i have in the Pokemon Bank.

i even give most of em nicknames. i wanted to name my Lucario "Luca Brasi" but it wouldn't let me.

I did that in platinum with all but Absol and the legendary birds. Some of the nicknames I'm proud of (Giratina is named Lucretia for example) and others were just for the sake of having a name (pretty sure I named Spearow Sparrow ) but I do appreciate most of my pokes

I kept a consistent rotation going in Y too. I had at least a boxes worth of pokes all up to level during the main storyline up until the e4 when I narrowed it to 7

Oh hey so stupid question. Suppose I have the Exp Share on. For the 5 pokes that aren't leading the party, do their stats grow at a lower rate than those of the poke in the lead?

Like, say I have a Kingdra as my lead, and it averages +3 across every stat when it levels up. Would the other five only average +2 or +1 because of the Exp Share, or does that have nothing to do with it?

I believe Pokemon who gain experience through the exp share also gain the same EVs as the Pokemon who actually defeated the enemy Pokemon, so I think they'd grow at the same rate.

Not 100% on that though.

Actually yeah of course they grow at the same rate. That'd be weird if they didn't.

Ah, the stat boost actually has to do with EVs, which is different from Exp. You can read more up on it here, because I can't really explain it well myself:

http://www.marriland.com/black_whit...how-to-ev-train

Though the guide has to do with Black and White, keep in mind that EVs get transferred to each poke in your party in X and Y as well.

EDIT: You can use this guide below if you want to EV train in XY.

Well EV training is pretty easy thanks to that super training thing.

Unless I missed something entirely with that whole concept

But yeah I mean if they grew at different rates because of the Exp Share I'd never use it but now that I know I plan on turning it back on

Just make sure you fully EV train them before letting them gain any exp from battling or the exp share and you'll be fine.

So if I understand your question right... exp has nothing to do with stat growth. A pokemons stat changes shouldn't be affected by another pokemons exp. Unless they are in battle together and share exp via exp share, but then it would only be affected because they shared the same EP gain, not experience.

Does this make sense? Can someone explain better or tell me how I'm wrong? haha


Stat growth during the level up, so yes, this answered my question

i don't understand anything about EVs, IVs, or anything else involving stats and what moves are actually good. it's why i never bother with online matches, i suck.

you know how bad i suck? my cousin who has an attention span of zero and has caught a grand total of ten pokemon since he got the game months ago beat me not once, but twice when we tried playing together.

i called him an asshole and a cheater for the next hour or so.
