In earlier Pokemon games, getting everybody in your crew to degree 100 was a critical milestone in itself. Changes to the techniques in Pokemon Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee imply that energy leveling to achieve degree 100 will be completed extra simply than ever – if you know the way.
In previous Pokemon games, it sometimes took an age of monotonous grinding to even get one Pokemon to degree 80. The remaining 20 ranges have been even worse nonetheless – and consequently, I personally hardly ever endeavored to even trouble with it.
It’s a bit totally different in Pokemon Let’s Go, although, as a result of you’ll be able to completely benefit from the game’s new mechanics to game the system. Over the weekend, I took a Weezing the entire means from degree 32 to degree 100 in beneath an hour – numerous leveling, very quick. It was a bit mad, actually, however now Weezing can actually maintain its personal towards just about any coach in Kanto – apart from the Weezing Master Trainer, apparently, as a result of even after maxing Weezing’s Special Attack and coaching it to be 25 ranges larger, “Donnie” nonetheless has a greater Weezing. Training Weezing to degree 100; a supposedly enjoyable factor I’ll by no means do once more. Cheers Donnie.
Anyway, regardless of my Weezing nonetheless being a bit garbage at degree 100, I’ll let you recognize how one can get to degree 100 shortly. Hopefully your Pokemon aren’t as inherently feeble as mine and may truly carry their weight towards different Pokes in a while within the game.
For energy leveling, coach battles aren’t all that helpful – significantly
So, you know how you don’t need to battle wild Pokemon anymore (until they’re stationary, that’s)? Well, catching them nets expertise factors on your complete crew.
So, as an alternative of getting to coach one Pokemon at a time by grinding the Vs Seeker and battling Bug Catcher Doug’s pretty Weedles, you’ll be able to actively simply go and catch ‘em all and construct a powerhouse crew whilst you accomplish that. Speaking of that…
Why you need to catch ‘em all (except for changing into the perfect like nobody ever was)
Basically, the upper your combo is, the upper your expertise multiplier is. It truly will get a bit ridiculous after some time. I used to be pulling 21,500 expertise factors a catch over the weekend simply from lobbing Ultra Balls at unsuspecting Rhydon in a late-game space. I bought 10 Pokemon to degree 100 in a couple of hours – granted, 4 of these have been already 75+, nevertheless it’s nonetheless a powerful feat if that’s the form of feat you’re inclined to seek out spectacular.
Ideally, you need to discover an space wherein the Pokemon are a excessive sufficient degree so that you can earn greater than 62 expertise factors a catch. I take advantage of Cerulean Cave often (home to Mewtwo), however locations like Victory Road and the Seafoam Islands work advantageous, too. There are additionally exceptions for Pokemon which might be identified for being rarer/having higher stats, such because the Tauros that roam to the appropriate of Fuchsia City. Just decide someplace with decently-leveled Pokemon that you just like and don’t thoughts catching 100 of, since you’re in all probability going to catch 200.
The purpose is to stack as many multipliers as attainable. The catch combos add one multiplier, however you additionally get multipliers for measurement, throw, and approach. If you catch a Pokemon that’s greater or smaller than any of the Pokemon of that sort that you just’ve caught earlier than, multiply. If you get a wonderful throw on the primary throw and used the movement management to achieve the “technique” bonus, multiply by hundreds. You get the drift.
Aim for enormous or tiny Pokemon (they’re price extra EXP every) and attempt to catch them with a single glorious throw. If they break away, you’re higher off with out them anyway. Another Pokemon will recognize you for who you might be and get cosy within the first Ultra Ball you throw. (Ultra Balls are nonetheless for Tories, by the way in which, however Poke Balls don’t actually work towards huge and robust Pokemon. Rob them from the in-game Tories – you’ll be able to actually discover Ultra Balls everywhere in the ground in Cerulean Cave – and use them out of sheer spite.)
Change your crew constantly
So, clearly this method works. If you’re getting 21.5k expertise from a Rhydon each 30 seconds, you’re going to see Pokemon reaching degree 100 lightning quick. It’s vital to keep in mind that 100 is definitely the very best degree, although, so you need to in all probability swap your degree 100s out for degree 12s as quickly as they hit max degree.
It appears a bit counter-intuitive when you’ve performed different Pokemon games, as going round a excessive degree space like Cerulean Cave with a crew of degree 7 Pidgeys would land you a loss of life stare from Nurse Joy’s Chansey faster than you would say “Gust.” There aren’t any coach battles, although, so throw warning to the wind and go all out with the Pokemon equal of the Renford Rejects.
Why that is the most effective factor you are able to do in Let’s Go
Let’s be trustworthy – after you’ve crushed the Elite Four and accomplished the Pokedex, you’ll possible be shiny looking, battling Master Trainers, or constructing a crew for aggressive battling. This approach lets you do all three on the identical time, as catch combos enhance your shiny odds anyway. As said above, that is additionally the quickest option to achieve expertise in Pokemon Let’s Go.
If you need to deal with the final word post-game content material – the Master Trainers – you’ll want these high-level creatures to do your bidding. In reality, you’ll ideally want a degree 100 variant of every species of Pokemon on this game.
For reference – defeating Lance’s complete crew will web you lower than 10,000 expertise factors for a single Pokemon in your crew. Catching one Chansey on a sequence in Cerulean Cave can get your complete crew 50ok+. Why would you ever practice towards the Elite Four? You’re already the Champion, aren’t you? The neatest thing to do when you will have the title is to say, “Oh, my Champion title and I actually aren’t available to battle at the moment – sorry!” Also, the Elite Four simply straight up neglect their Pokemon after you battle them for a second time. I don’t see Bruno coaching his Onix to degree 100.
Anyway, the gist of that is – battling trainers is all properly and good, however simply don’t do it until you’re caught for money. The Elite Four, all eight Gym Leaders, and Red, Blue, and Green are all completely minted. Beat them up so you should buy a great deal of Ultra Balls and Lures after which simply catch a number of Pokemon in the way in which talked about above. That’s essentially the most environment friendly option to get your Pokes to degree 100 and also you may simply catch some shinies whilst you’re at it. The shiny may be garbage, however you’ll be able to simply practice it in the very same means after which it gained’t be garbage anymore. This is mainly magic.
