The question is, i would like to train this pokemon (yes i know illumise and with this nature is pretty silly) but anyway, how can i make this pokemon the best it can be, what moveset would suit the bold nature or how can i make use of this shiny pokemon. Would it help if I traded it to diamond/pearl/platinum to improve it? I can use it as a battler or for contests. thanks for the help
IMO, don't battle with it as Illumise isn't very good at battling, just keep it in a box for the respect of having a shiny pokemon.
