Mega Stones, the final O-Power and more!
Published Feb. 4, 2014, 1:10 p.m. about Pokemon X and Pokemon Y
by Christopher Buffa
After beating Pokemon X or Pokemon Y , your first thought may involve selling the game for store credit or tossing it into a drawer. In the words of Capcom lawyer Phoenix Wright, “Hold it!” There’s still plenty to do in Nintendo’s epic 3DS adventure, so don’t let it collect dust without completing these 18 bonus objectives.
Trade Pokemon with your friend Shauna
She’s waiting for you outside your home in Vaniville Town. In fact, she’ll accept whatever Pokemon you wish to trade, in exchange for her Chespin if you chose Fennekin at the start of the game, Fennekin if you chose Froakie or Froakie if you selected Chespin.
Visit the Sycamore Pokemon Lab to Pick Up the Poke Radar
While in Lumiose City, stop by the Sycamore Lab on South Boulevard and talk to a lab assistant on the second floor to get the Poke Radar. This handy device lets you search tall grass for wild battle monsters of the same species. Pretty cool.
Trade Pokemon with Diantha
The former Kalos region champ is willing to trade her Ralts for any type of Pokemon. Even better, this Ralts has a Gardevoirite. To meet her, visit Café Soleil on South Boulevard.
Get the last O-Power
Providing you learned the available O-Powers from Mr. Bonding, visit Café Introversion and obtain the Hatching Power.
Enter Sushi High Roller
The champ is here! The champ is here! The staff will finally let you step inside this swanky restaurant, located north of Rouge Plaza.
Partake in a Battle Test
All of the Battle Tests are readily available at the Battle Institute located on North Boulevard. This is more than simple training. You’ll earn prizes and BP.
Snag the National Pokedex
Go to Lumiose Station and speak with Sina and Dexio. They’ll update your Pokedex, transforming it into the National Pokedex. Now you can register even more Pokemon!
Tip: While inside Lumiose Station, track down Professor Sycamore. He’ll give you a TMV pass to Kiloude City. Hop aboard a train and check out this area.
Get a Max Revive inside Kiloude Station
A youngster will quiz you on Pokemon. Select the correct answer to score a Max Revive. No pressure. You can guess as many times as you’d like.
Tip: Headed to the Pokemon Center in Kiloude City? If so, stop by the house on the way and show the woman a Pokemon that knows the Petal Blizzard move to get another Max Revive.
Get the Vs. Recorder
Once you exit Kiloude Station, a man will present you with the Vs. Recorder. This helpful device lets you record Battle Videos against players and make them public online for other gamers to watch. You can even retry battles you recorded!
Talk to the Judge at the Pokemon Center in Kiloude City
The honorable one will size up any of your Pokemon and tell you which stats are powerful or weak. Do you have several Pokemon of the same species? He’ll let you know which one has the best potential.
Grab the TM91 Flash Cannon
Don’t leave Kiloude City yet. Visit the southeast house and talk to the kid upstairs to get this special device. Now you can teach a Pokemon a Steel-type special move.
Now you’re ready to get the TM58 Sky Drop
Check out one of the northwest homes in Kiloude City. The girl who lives there will hook you up with the TM58. This two-stage maneuver lifts an opponent into the air, where it can’t take action until it falls to the ground the following turn.
Visit the Battle Maison
Located in the center of Kiloude City, the Battle Maison lets you partake in single, double, triple and rotation battles. You can also team up with friends for multi battles. Reach win-streak milestones for special prizes.
Go on a Friend Safari in Kiloude City
Register friends to go on special Friend Safaris, where you have a chance to capture Pokemon from previous games. This frees you up from the hassle of transferring and trading.
Visit Anistar City for a Mega Stone surprise
Complete one battle in the Battle Maison, and you’ll run into Serena or Calem near the north pond in Kiloude City. Defeat him or her and you’ll receive a message from Professor Sycamore asking you to visit Anistar City near a sundial. Doing this reveals some interesting information about Mega Stones. Even better, you can now use your Mega Ring to track down Mega Stones between 8:00PM and 9:00PM every day.
Visit the Lonely Old Man in Anistar City
There’s a good chance you lent an old man a Pokemon long ago. While in Anistar City, visit his home. He’s gone, but you can reclaim that Pokemon, read a thank you letter and obtain a Comet Shard. Nice guy, right?
Capture Zygarde in Terminus Cave
This elusive Pokemon is ready to fight! Look for it while heading to the last floor of Terminus Cave, and prepare for one of the toughest battles yet, thanks to its Earthquake and Dragon Pulse moves. Weaken the critter just enough, and you might capture it.
Catch Legendary Pokemon in Azure Bay
By all means, soak up some sun while visiting this popular vacation spot. When you’re ready for business, check out the Sea Spirit’s Den at the north end of Azure Bay. There, you’ll have a unique opportunity to catch Legendary Pokemon Articuno, Zapdos or Moltres.
An all-new 3D Pokémon adventure packed with never-before-seen Pokémon has launched! Pokémon X and Pokémon Y presents a new generation of Pokémon and introduces players to an exciting new adventure in a breathtaking 3D world.
You’ll be able to go on your journey as a boy or a girl, and you can choose how your hero looks overall! Find a look that suits you, and then set off on your travels!
Your adventure takes place in the expansive Kalos region, where you’ll explore cities, meet people, and encounter many Pokémon. Don’t miss Lumiose City, the central hub of the region, where you’ll return many times on your journey.
Look for all-new Fairy-type Pokémon, the first new Pokémon type since Dark-type and Steel-type Pokémon were introduced almost a decade ago. Fairy-type moves are super effective against Dragon-type Pokémon. One such Fairy-type Pokémon to meet is Sylveon, the new evolved form of Eevee!
All-new battle formats are fun for new players and Pokémon pros. Sky Battles feature duels between Pokémon that can fly, and Horde encounters are massive competitions where one of your Pokémon faces many wild Pokémon at once! These new modes will challenge every Pokémon Trainer.
In addition to new battle types, you can also care for your Pokémon with the Pokémon-Amie feature. Feed, pet, and play with your Pokémon to increase your bond. The more you play with your Pokémon, the friendlier they’ll become—and perhaps perform better for you in battle.
Around the Kalos region, you’ll meet a lot of people. First there’s the brilliant Professor Sycamore. He’s researching Pokémon, and he’s looking to you and your friends for help. He may even challenge you to a battle from time to time. But you’re also likely to encounter members of the mysterious organization Team Flare. What they’re up to is anyone’s guess.
In Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, some Pokémon will tap into powers long dormant. This special kind of Evolution is called Mega Evolution. In addition to far greater strength, Mega-Evolved Pokémon may also see their Ability change, or even their type!
There’s a new method of Pokémon training: Super Training! With Super Training, it’s not your Pokémon’s level that goes up but its base stats, the underlying values that define your Pokémon’s skills in battle. These base stats could be increased using items and other methods in previous Pokémon titles, but in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, you’ll be able to raise them far more easily than ever before, thanks to Super Training.
The all-new Player Search System (PSS) gives you all kinds of new ways to interact with other players. With the PSS, you can battle and trade with players around the world, as well as share O-Powers, special abilities that will temporarily enhance certain gameplay aspects. And the Holo Caster feature of the PSS lets you trade messages with faraway Trainers and receive Pokémon X and Pokémon Y news bulletins.
The Pokémon Global Link has been completely redesigned to be easier and more fun to use! Now, directly from the PGL homepage, see your game progress, enter Online Competitions, and more. You can even share a timeline of your adventures with your friends and the whole world!

Closed 7 years ago .
I want to train up a good team in order to beat the Pokémon League and various trainers in-game. I’m not focusing on competitive (online) play at the moment, so I’m only asking for some suggestions for a good in-game Pokémon team.
I’m not looking directly for 6 “must have” Pokemon, just a suggestion of some good Pokémon to train (it could be 6/8/10 Pokémon etc) or some Pokémon types to have in my Pokémon team.

Sorry to give you that answer, but: It doesn’t matter!
Since the first Pokémon games (Red/Blue/Green) gameplay mechanics were really simple. As you have endless tries to defeat opponent trainers, you are also able to train your Pokémon to oblivion. So if you can’t beat on first time, just level 5 levels further and you go. In 6th generation, story mode has been made even more easier.
Sure, there are some little tips:
- Try to get a counter for each type (you can look up on effectiveness tables like this (German) to see which one counters).
- Try not to focus on one type one one Pokémon. If you’ve got a water Pokémon, don’t only teach him water type attacks. It maybe can learn ice type or others which can then be used to counter other Pokémons.
- Prepare for Gym Leaders. Read the signs or ask NPCs what type the next Gym Leader uses. Battle against him/her once to see which Pokémon he/she uses. If you got it, learn your Pokémon counter-attacks or even switch them with more effective ones.
For story mode there is no “perfect team” as you can win with every team. You can choose your own team of your own favor. It really begins to matter if you want to compete online – there you have to counter sets of Pokémon, strategy and tactics. But that’s a whole different story.
As you want suggestions for some good Pokémon: As it is totally opinion-based for story mode I can’t tell you “the three you must have”. You see a Pokémon you like? Catch it, train it, try it. You’re not happy with it? Replace it. This game is full of grindiness and you should experience this, too.
As for type suggestions I do have another link: Click here Unfortunately I do have this table only in German, but I’ll translate the introducing text for you:
In this ranking, types are ordered by how well they can put away attacks of all types (including double types). Morphers and Mega Pokémons are included in count [ger Anzahl]
Please note, that this won’t make your team good at the second thought. Grass type may be the worst type in attack and defense – but it may be wunderful if the opponent’s team consists of “strong” Ground and Water types.
- An Electric type (probably Jolteon or Raichu),
- A Steel type (Honedge evolutions or Steelix would be good),
- A Fire type (I would suggest the heat Rotom form),
- A Water type (Greninja would be good if you chose Froakie as your starter),
- A Psychic type (I have Meowstic and everything is going well),
- A Flying type (I don’t know what a good Flying type would be, this is just incase you need to have a sky battle.)
This list is from personal experiance and based off of my opinion, so please don’t feel offended if any of these pokemon are not that good ^-^”
Chesnaught: He’s a very solid Pokemon, in both Attack AND Defense. He can take a few hits, and throw them right back at the offender. His move set was/is Hammer Arm; Seed Bomb; Dragon Claw; Poison Jab.
- Hammer Arm was used PERFECTLY against most of Wikstroms team, and I switched out for the Klefki.
Blastoise: Again, another solid yet strong Team Member. He completely crushed Malva’s team, and even the Klefki on Wikstroms team. He also took out the Tyrantrum on Diantha’s team, and some of the Dragons on Drasnas team with his Ice Beam and Blizzard. His move set is/was Blizzard; Ice Beam; Surf; WaterFall.
Lucario: (Not the one you get. I caught and trained one with +Attack and -Speed): A very speedy and strong team member. GREAT in Attack and Special Attack. He wiped out most of Drasna’s team, and even beat Diantha’s Mega Gardevoir with his Mega form + Poison Jab. His move set is/was Close Combat; Dragon Pulse; Aura Sphere; Poison Jab.
- He is a very solid team member, and you should really use him :3
- I really sugest you to use him, cause he’ll plow through anything, and can be very useful if you wanna do a Rematch on the Elite Four.
UPDATE 3/4: Unfortunately, this has now been patched out on the 3DS! You can still do it if you don’t update, but it means not being able to play online.
Original article follows:
Some people turn their noses up at hacked Pokémon, in the same way that people look down, say, a fake Rolex. But let’s say you wanted a hacked Pokémon to play within your own copy of Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire or Pokémon X/Y. Here’s how to make one.
Earlier this week we covered how Pokémon cheaters figured out a way to use the 3DS camera to import Pokemon—premade Pokémon. Today, we’re going to walk you through how to actually make your own Pokémon, with moves that you pick, the level you want, and the build you desire—all without having to capture, train or breed it. You’re going to need three things:
1) An older 3DS. The New 3DS doesn’t work with this exploit.
2) This program, which is only available for PCs. Sorry, Mac users.
3) An internet connection. Your 3DS must be connected to the internet, and you must be able to move files from your computer to a website online.
And. that’s it. That’s right, you don’t need to purchase something like an Action Replay.
First thing’s first. You need to download PKHeX , a program that lets you edit your Pokémon game. Open the program up. You’re going to see something like this:
It looks daunting, but don’t sweat it. You’re mostly going to be punching in info to the relevant boxes, and the entire thing should be over in about 25 minutes, tops.
The first thing you’re going to want to do is, click on “Tools”, and then select “Toggle Box Interface.” Your screen should now look like this:
On the first tab, you’re going to have to input all the relevant information. For PID, click on “reroll.” The program should give you a number automatically. This is short for “Pokemon ID Number,” and you can read more about that here —don’t worry about it for these purposes.
If you want this Pokémon to be shiny, click on the star icon next to the PID number. If you don’t care about that, leave it alone.
Next, select your species. What Pokémon do you want? You can pick anything, including Pokemon that aren’t actually released yet. But do note that you’ll have to jump through extra hoops should you decide to generate a hacked legendary or event Pokémon—so while your first instinct might be “LETS MAKE A HOOPA!,” it might be a bigger headache than you’re anticipating.
In any case, under that you can dictate the level of the Pokémon you’re creating. Don’t worry about figuring out the amount of experience—just type in the level you want, and it’ll automaticlaly fill in the specific experience amount to make that.
Under that, you can choose what nature the Pokémon is, and what they’re holding. All personal preference—go nuts.
Next, you can punch in how friendly the Pokémon is. 255 is the max, and there’s no reason not to max it out, really. If your Pokémon comes in different forms, then select your desired one right next door, too. Otherwise, don’t worry about it.
Then, you can decide if you want the Pokémon as an egg, if you want the Pokémon to have Pokerus , or if you don’t want it to be susceptible to Pokerus. I’d keep this simple. Don’t make a level 50 Pokémon into an egg. Don’t cure your Pokémon, either.
Finally, select your country and the region of you 3DS. Don’t mess around with this—put in your actual info. If you’re following along, you should end up with something like this:
In my case, I’m making a high-level shiny Bidoof named Butts. He’s jolly, friendly to me, and he’s American. Cool.
Okay! That’s one tab down. A few more to go. These ones should be a bit quicker. Next, click on the “Met” tab. It should take you to something that looks like this:
I would also keep things simple here. For origin game, set it to either ORAS or X & Y, unless it’s impossible to attain the Pokémon in either of those games. In that case, you’ll want to get specific about where this Pokémon would normally appear. For the rest of us, though, “AS” does fine.
Next, met location. If you care about making this look legit, select an area where the Pokémon would actually appear. If you don’t care, just select whatever.
Ball should be obvious: that’s where you can specify what ball the Pokémon will appear in. Met level is also up to you, but again, if you want to make it legit, you might want to look up around what levels the Pokémon in question appears at in the area you selected beforehand. Consistency!
Under that, you can say when you met the Pokémon you’re creating. It’ll default to the year 2000, but under the calendar menu, there should be something that says “Today’s Date.” Tweak as desired.
Then, you can select whether or not you met this Pokémon as an egg. Whether or not you want to say that depends on whether or not you want to make the Pokémon look legit—do you want to make it seem as if you hatched this Pokémon, for example? Is that actually possible with the Pokémon in question? If not, don’t select “as egg.” This is the sort of thing you’ll want to look up, if you care.
This is what I ended up with—I’m not really concerned about making this look real, because it’s not, soooo.
Now we’re getting to the fun stuff. Click on the “Stats” tab. It should look like this:
If you have a specific idea of what your Pokémon build should look like, input your numbers. This will only apply to hardcore players, but for the rest of you. IV determines how strong a specific stat is – 31 is the highest, 1 is the lowest. EVs determine how much training you’re giving a specific stat. You can read more about these hidden stats here —for now suffice it to say that, the higher an IV is, the stronger your Pokémon is. So feel free to click on “randomize IVs” until you get a sort of build that’s acceptable to you, that emphasizes your desired stat. Same thing with EVs. just make sure that the total at the bottom doesn’t exceed 510. Anything more than 510 is not actually possible in the game.
If you don’t care about the stats of your hacked Pokémon, simply click “randomize IVs” once and “randomize EVs” once. Boom. You’re done with that part of the program.
