Map to find all the Pokemons in the game
If you are still struggling to find and catch 'em all in "Pokemon X and Y," this new discovery may help you in your quest to get all the Pokemons in the new game.
Escapist Magazine has found a "Pokemon X and Y" map via Reddit, and it features all of the locations and details of Pokemons that you can catch. It's very detailed, as it gives you not only the location or city where the Pokemons are, but even in the actual place where it is (bushes, shallow water, rocks).
The map also helps you know which kind of technique to use when catching a particular Pokemon. Reddit user and creator Bobdor has even included some of the easiest ways to catch the Pokemons in the map.
One example of the list of Pokemons that you can get as per the map is that, in Route 10, you can catch 9 Pokemons. Six of them, namely Eevee, Snubbull, Sigilyph, Emolga, Golett, and Hawlucha, can be caught via a Special Catch. Three Pokemons can be caught in hordes. These are Yanma, Nosepass, and Houndour for Pokemon X and Electrike for Pokemon Y.
Check out the map in the link above and try it out on your next "Pokemon X and Y" game.
Easy ways to level up your Pokemon
Apart from getting easy money in the game, another way to boost your "Pokemon X and Y" game is to level up your Pokemon's level. Gearnuke found some ways to do this easily.
The first is by using the Exp Share and the Lucky Egg. The Lucky Egg can be found in the hotel in Coumarine City or you can scavenge for them in Friend Safari. If you want to spread the Experience of your Pokemon in battle, just have them do battle while holding on to the Lucky Egg, which allows the experience to also be shared to your team.
The more Lucky Eggs you have, the bigger your points will be. Basically, your battling Pokemon holding a Lucky Egg can only share half of its experience points with those who are not participating in the battle. But if the Pokemons on standby in your team are also holding Lucky Eggs, they will get more experience points than normally allowed.
