    as far as i know the tag is the game version, when you start the game for the first time you choose your language and can not change it ever again! "mysterious music plays" so i guess thats where you set your game version and put the pokemon on the matsuda train. whould be senseless if they forbid you to change your game language just because the can.

    This is the part of breeding with egg moves that I don't like. Have to find a pokemon that knows the move you want then make sure it's in the same egg group. With my luck it never is lol so when it's not and it's the only one you have then you have to find a poke that can know it and is in the same egg group then level it up. I'm going from level 1 to 49 right now :( on level 34. Takes forever without the audino ladies in the battle chateau

    uhm, i level all my pokemon in the battle cafe things in the big city, i give them the exp eggs and use an o-power for exp.
    i then play the 3 pokemon battle with high level pokemon. the lvl 1 pokemon go from 1 too 40 in one go, goes pretty fast.

    Question about changing parents. Does it matter which parent is changed or can it be another local/your own Pokemon?

    I don't think it matters, the chances are the same as long as at least one is from another region.

    Another
    Another really good method is to have 2 Lucky Eggs on pokemon you want to level, put them in spots 2 and 3 respectively, go to Cafe Le Wow, Put a good lvl 100 sweeper up front with amulet coin, activate EXP lvl 3, go into a rotation battle. You easily go into the 40's or 50's and with amulet coin and the balm mushroom rewards you get your money back

    I hatched 50 more eevee eggs, and got a shiny! So that makes my total:
    550 hatched
    2 shiny

    This eevee was the last shiny that I really wanted and I probably won't purposely try to hatch another shiny, so I won't keep track of eggs any more. I had pretty good luck with my shiny quest. I'm happy.
    But wow, it's a female modest eevee, has its hidden ability, and Iv's appear to be 31/?/31/27/31/31 That is incredibly lucky! What should I evolve it into? I'm leaning towards espeon so I can name it Palutena. 'Cause espeon is green, like her hair. :) Decided on espeon.

    Ok, so at 600 eggs, no shiny.
    Decided to switch it up, I'm now using an English Fennekin and an Italian Ditto.

    I know it doesn't help my chances but I guess foreign Dittos are just a wives tale for luck >.>

    Hey there guys I just got my Shiny charm last night and I was wondering I'm gonna pledge 300 eggs but I'm gonna do things a little differntly I won't hatch my eggs I'm just gonna keep them in my boxes then use Mas Dumper to check which ones if any have a ESV that matches my TSV, since those would count as being shiny, plus I can just upload my progress with the spreadsheet that it spits out
