Well, i finally actually GREW a pkmn up to level 100. After going through the elite 4 a couple of times, i decided to box.... when suddenly i realised... you can´t box!

The boxes are set differently from olden days, so you don´t ever really ´switch´ boxes. So what´s the consequence? You can´t box.

Does anybody have an alternative, or are we stuck with the low-stat ridden SOBs that we get at lvl 100?

Not sure what you mean by boxing, but the box trick still works, if thats what you're talking about. Depositing and withdrawing your Pokemon will still recalculate their stats based on effort values.

I just boxed my Groudon to final effort values. Yes, I drop him in my box and pull him back out and see stats increase.

Maybe your Groudon had already full effort by the time you tried to box it, DrFuko.

It takes a maximum of 510 (508, actually, but who cares) battles to fully max a Pokémon's stats in RS.

If your Lv. 5 Pokémon needs 1 000 000 EXP to reach Lv. 100, it has to gain an average of 1961 EXP *PER POKéMON* to require boxing at Lv. 100.

Not gonna happen.

Unless you faint NOTHING but Pokémon that raise nothing but one stat (attempted genocide of Tentacool, anyone?) or you just Rare Candy up to Lv. 100, you won't need boxing. Considering it takes roughly 100 000 EXP to get to Lv. 50, even Groudon and Kyogre won't need it. Rayquaza, who comes at Lv. 70, MAYBE. But I doubt that too, since most of the trainers will be gone by then. And this is all assuming that you get one point of stat exp per battle. You'll be fainting stuff that gives two or even three points at times, and with PokéRus and/or the Macho Brace, that figure is doubled and doubled again.

So whether it's in the game or not is actually pretty irrelevant, as you have to go out of your own way to need it.

Oh, tangent: Since all 386 Pokémon have stat exp bonuses attached to them, could that mean additional Pokémon are unlocked by E-Reader cards for you to catch/battle in the wild? Easter is coming up; I'll have to push for a stupid card thingie. [Frown]

In RBYGSC, the box trick never required you to switch boxes after deposting. Perhaps you're thinking of the cloning trick?

Wouldn't this be obvious by the effort ribbon?

I agree, ShadowHawk.

But DrFuko didn't mention he tried it. So, if he just go there to check... [Razz]
