Best training locations
When you want to get more XP so as to beat the Elite 4, you need the best locations to train your Pokémon. The location you choose depends on the level of your Pokémon.
Here are a few tips for easy training locations:
- Train at the Granite Cave for Pokémon of level 20.
- For level 30, Pokémon train at Route 117.
- Route 120 and 121 are perfect for training Pokémons at around level 40.
- For level 45 to 50 Pokémon, the best training ground should be outside Mossdeep City.
How to unlock rare stones
You will find these rare stones under the water near Mossdeep at the Hunter’s House. Here’s how to get each of the rare stones.
To get the Fire Stone, give a Shard Hunter a Red Shard.
You’ll get the Leaf Stone when you give the Shard Hunter a Green Shard and the Thunder Stone when you give away a Yellow Shard. To get the precious Water Stone, just give the Hunter a Blue Shard.
How to unlock scarfs
To get the Blue Scarf, make sure your lead Pokémon comes with maximum beauty.
You can also get the Green Scarf when your lead Pokémon has maximum smartness, the Pink Scarf when the Pokémon has maximum cuteness, and the Red Scarf when your lead Pokémon comes with maximum coolness.
For the Yellow Scarf, ensure that your lead Pokémon comes with maximum toughness.
How to beat the elite 4
