Soloed Misty first try. Oh my god the amount of hax. Eipretac1 was level 31 during the battle, but leveled up during and evolved into Metapod (:
I plan on leaving Ruthless in the daycare for awhile, at least until I can fly back to get her. I use an emulator on my phone with a speedx2 option that i usually use for grinding, so he should level up pretty quickly while I'm training Cloverleaf and Leafy up to match Eipretac1's level.
(I own a copy of the game, but playing on my phone is more accessible to me, plus this way I don't have to Noah's Ark all of my beloved pokemon to a different game so I can restart.)
