to get our pokemon max experience?
Well, I've done the research, and come up with more-or-less conclusive results.
I did some research on the Azure Pokemon Center forum, and figured out how you could best level up your pokemon via Unowns. Meowth346 said that with fully doped (Carbos, Calcium) pokemon, you need 780 Unowns to reach full stat EXP.
Here is the work I did there:
If 780 Unowns are needed, and you fight ONLY Unowns, from level 5 on...
Normal/Medium Speed growths will have max stats before level 20!
(Formula was done on QBasic, being as such:
XP = 0
Level = 6 (You are growing into this level)
Loop until XP > 33540 (43x780)
XPNeeded = Level^3
XP = XP + XPNeeded
Level = Level + 1
After level 18, when going for level 19, it takes 6859 (L^3) EXP. After this time, the total is 35875. So, at level 19, you have max stats on normal growths.
Now, for Fast growths:
Same deal. By level 20, they'll have all they need.
By level 18!
By level 21, they have more than 34000 EXP. They grow faster than Fast pokes, but not by THAT much.
So, dupe up your pokes, and go fight Unowns. By level 20 (Or there abouts) You'll have max Stat EXP! (From these calculations...otherwise, it seems pretty easy...almost too easy...) Just give your pokemon Thief or something to wipe Unowns out, and bring potions.
I would try this with 390 needed....Wait, I will.
Normal: By level 17
Fast: By level 18
Slow: By level 16
Parabolic: By level 19
Not bad! Takes off a few levels, althou you'd expect more....anyways.
So, that's my research; Hope it's helpful/correct.
Now, people may consider the Elite 4/5 as being better for making your pokemon grow. This is what I did my today's research on.
I went through every pokemon in the Elite 4/5, and found out how much of each Base Stat it gave, as well as how much experience it gave. I could show exactly how much for each trainer, but I wrote it down, and don't feel like typing it out.
Basicly, from beating all 5, you get 2406 Attack, 2116 Defense, 2089 Special, 2040 Speed, and 1956 HP, in base stats.
Now, you need 65025 for max stats, or you can get 25500 from dupe-items, leaving you with 39525 points needed.
So, if the lowest stat is 1956...
You need (39525/1956)... 20.2, or 21 trips through the Elite 4/5, all with 1 poke doing all the work, to get max stat EXP.
Wouldn't it be just as easy battling Unowns?
Well, you'd need lots of PP-ups to be able to make it all the way, and diverse enough moves. Ethers and Hyper Potions to help, too.
Anyways, that's what I did. I figured out how many times through the Elite 4/5 one needs to max stat a poke.
Bah; it's nothing, right?
Well, I tried.
