Pokemon Red and Blue Versions How many times must I beat the Elite 4 and Rival to max out the Stat Experience of One Pokemon? I was about to ask this question in the SQSA thread and saw that the latest post asked the same exact question. Instead of fretting, I went ahead and made a spread sheet and calculated it myself. Player Starts w/ Bulbasaur HP: 37 Atk: 31 Def: 32 Spc: 32 Spe: 34 Player Starts w/ Charmander HP: 37 Atk: 31 Def: 32 Spc: 32 Spe: 34 Player Starts w/ Squirtle HP: 37 Atk: 31 Def: 32 Spc: 33 Spe: 34 Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Crystal Versions # of Rounds HP: 34 Atk: 28 Def: 31 Spc: 32 Spe: 37 Look at how few battles must be completed to train for Attack! Lance's entire team, especially the three Dragonite, has a huge effect on that. The levels of the E4's Pokemon are much lower here than they are in RBY. If you're lucky enough to contract the PokéRus, cut those encounters in half. In other words... Do All Stat Experience Training in GSC!
