Evolved Spinarak and boxed it, though I may bring it back if I need Night Shade to help capture ghost type Pokémon. Put Abra in the team so I can GTS it when it evolves and get a trade evolution. Unfortunately Teleport is no longer usable outside of battle.

I'm currently fighting the Elite Four, after two days of speeding through the game and relying on the Exp Share t keep me levelled up.

Stoutland - Lv53
Wishiwashi - Lv56
Vikavolt - Lv56
Minior - Lv54
Decidueye - Lv57
Solgaleo - Lv56

Vikavolt was worth waiting for, only evolving after going through three and a half islands as Grubbin / Charjabug. Minior has been OP with Shell Smash shenanigans, just like I hoped it would be. Stoutland is just great, Decidueye is okay-ish but it could have been better honestly, and Wishiwashi is so strong with Schooling. I'm likely to use Minior again on Moon, so I'm glad it wasn't deadweight at all.

 I think I just got to Poni Island? Just came from Aether(sp?) Island, generally just slowing down to train Pokemon that I might have missed or couldn't train because I didn't have fly yet.

 Wishiwashi - Lv.49
 Bouncee - Lv.50
 Araquanid - Lv.24
 Salazzle - Lv.45
 Toucannon - Lv.48
 Decidueye - Lv.52

 Araquanid is really cool, it grew on me pretty quickly. I'm mostly just slowing down to catch-up on stuff I missed earlier in the game.

I've been building up my Smeargle to use as a second catcher. It has the ability Technician and currently knows 3 moves: Hold Back (from event Snorlax), Spore (from Paras) and Echoed Voice. Obviously False Swipe would be just as good as Hold Back. The last move will be Soak, which will allow it to attack ghost type Pokémon, get normal effectiveness against rock and steel types, and allow Spore to affect grass types. I'm levelling up a Goldeen to learn Soak so I can teach it to Smeargle. Goldeen learns it at level 40.

The easiest way to teach Smeargle a move is to fly back to Route 2, use the move on a wild Smeargle so it sketches it, switch to your own Smeargle and use Sketch to learn it from the wild Smeargle. To get Sketch again you need to level it until it learns another Sketch.

In other news, I bred a female Litten and GTS traded it for a female Rowlet.

in party:
Incineroar F Lv.39 - Mamiti
Pelipper M Lv.39 - Golly
Snorlax M Lv.38 - Pancake
Charjabug M Lv.39 - <Japanese name>
Goldeen M Lv.33
Smeargle M Lv.27 - Farbeagle

in reserve:
Slowpoke M Lv.32 - Yergi
Magnemite Lv.25 - Sparkatron

I traded a Chinchou for a female Wimpod in Moon. The good thing is the owner wanted any Chinchou rather than the ridiculous Legendary or event only trades that are pretty common or demanding one below level 10 or above the level I had.

Goldeen got to level 40, learned Soak and then evolved. I taught Soak to Smeargle as previously described, then boxed Seaking and Pelipper, replacing them with my reserve Pokémon. If I'm going to use Pelipper, it may as well have Drizzle as it's one of its regular abilities now, just like Torkoal gets Drought.

Managed to find a male Alolan Vulpix the very first time seeing it in my Sun game and caught it. It is now known as Snow Paw. Then I found a Purple Minior as my first encounter in the grass in the place where you get Volt Switch and the second encounter was a Ditto. So I got two rare Pokemon rather easily.

It's been so long since I've done anything related to Warriors, yet I still remember most of it fondly.

In Pokemon I have almost finished the Pokedex. All I need to do is level up a few more Pokemon and trade with a friend for Solegeo, Buzzwole and the other sun exclusive UB that I don't remember. One of my Pheromosa beast boosts special attack and is capable of taking out the elite four on its own.
Sup ~ I RP and stuff.
Also called Cody on err... pretty much everything.
When I play Pokemon I follow my personal Rule: I can only use Each Pokemon once across all games that I can transfer Pokemon across. I have used 108 different Pokemon I think.

Evolved Slowpoke and Magnemite, then I reached Vast Poni Canyon which allowed me to evolve Charjabug and Magneton. I'm keeping Vikavolt in the party as it is very good with 4 different attacking moves, but I replaced Magnezone with a Zubat I got off the GTS. The Zubat is Spanish and has a nickname; I traded a male Litten for it.

Vikavolt Lv.55 - <Japanese name>
[Levitate] @ (no item)
- Thunderbolt
- X-Scissor
- Acrobatics
- Crunch

No item to make Acrobatics more powerful.

Smeargle Lv.55 - Farbeagle
[Technician] @ Silk Scarf
- Spore
- Hold Back
- Echoed Voice
- Soak

Catcher. Soak allows it to hit ghost types with attacking moves and grass types with Spore.

Incineroar Lv.52 - Mamiti
[Blaze] @ Incinium Z
- Darkest Lariat
- Fire Fang
- Leech Life
- Brick Break

Slowbro Lv.50 - Yergi
[Oblivious] @ Amulet Coin
- Water Pulse
- Psychic
- Grass Knot
- Slack Off

I usually lead with this so I get extra money from the Amulet Coin.

Snorlax Lv.49 - Pancake
[Thick Fat] @ Snorlium Z
- Giga Impact
- Crunch
- Hold Back
- Yawn

Catcher with Hold Back event move. Giga Impact is required to use the exclusive Z move.

Zubat Lv.20 - Yasuo Suja

I evolved Golbat into Crobat, then replaced Snorlax with a Carbink that I caught for the utility move Skill Swap. Skill Swap will be used to detect the ability of Pokémon before catching them. I taught it some extra attacks via TM.

Carbink Lv.43 - Binko
[Clear Body] @ Fairium Z
- Dazzling Gleam
- Ancient Power
- Psychic
- Skill Swap



Update:
I caught the Pokérus yesterday while messing around evolving some Pokémon for the dex.

I've also been using Pelago Isle Elelup to passively EV train some Pokémon. With beans it takes 16 hours to max a stat (even while not playing) and I upgraded the isle so I can do 12 Pokémon at once. Not doing this for my whole team as I haven't beaten the game yet, just trying the feature out for a few Pokémon.

I just found out some more information about this island.. the Pokémon gain 1 EV per play session if the island is level 1, 2 EVs if the island is level 2 and 4 EVs if the island is level 3. This means my Pokémon will not have gained the full amount of EVs and I'll have to leave them even longer to do so.

I exchanged some of the rarer beans for plain beans to upgrade the isle to level 3, so at least I will gain full EVs next time I use the feature.

Starting to really regret playing this entire game without the exp share on. I was expecting just as easy a ride as xy and oeras, but now im heading to the elite four with a heavily underlevelled team.
