Pokemon Y Tips and Tricks
Once you’ve restarted your Pokemon Y save data, here are a couple of tips and tricks that will help you kick off your adventure in the best way possible.
Right after you get your Pokedex, save your game, press Start + Select + L + R to reset it, then navigate to the Mystery Gift and “Wi-fi.”
Doing that will get you a special Torchic, which you can get from the delivery person on the left of the counter at any Pokemon Center.
One of the best ways to earn money in the game is to use the Amulet Coin on your front-loaded Pokemon for the entire game. You won’t need to use any other boost item.
The Amulet Coin can be obtained at Parfum Palace between the first and second gyms and will double the coins you earn from trainer fights.
You can save some money by not investing in too many potions since you won’t be needing them. If you want to heal, you can simply ride back to a Pokemon center and heal for free.
You can use the money you saved up on buying Pokeballs since they’re one of the most important things to have in your inventory.
There’s a bug that will crash your game if you save outside in Lumiose City, so be careful and don’t save there.
If you don’t pay too much attention to your starter Pokemon, go with Froakie or Chespin. That way, you can get your Torchic to cover fire. Next, pick Bulbasaur or Squirtle, and you’ll have a powerful Grass/Water/Fire trifecta.
If you want to feed your Pokemon Poke-Buffs, you need to hold the puff in front of their face rather than drop it on the floor.
Catching Pokemon increases the rate you’ll unlock for a “Critical Capture,” which means that you can instantly catch a Pokemon after throwing a ball at it.
O-Powers, while vaguely explained in-game, are very useful. They provide buffs and special abilities to your local and online friends.
Don’t hesitate to use them when you see someone online as they regenerate over time.
Pay attention to the different patches of grass as each type of patch has different properties and potential Pokemon encounter rates.
As an example, you can find an Eevee much easier in a yellow patch of grass than you would in a green one.
If you want to evolve an Inkay, hold you 3DS upside-down when he reaches level 30 in combat. If you want to be extra sure, you can just keep the 3DS held up upside-down throughout the whole fight.
