Rating 5


When you submit two Pokemon to the Pokemon Daycare in Solaceon Town, speak with the bald man directly outside immediately afterwards to see if your Pokemon are compatible. If they are not compatible, he will say something like "They prefer to play with other Pokemon". However, if he says anything else like "The two don't really seem to like each other that much" or "They are getting along great", it indicates your Pokemon can breed and have an egg. If you use two that are the same kind of Pokemon, for example, one female Eevee and one male Eevee, they will produce eggs quickly. After you have found out their compatibility, get on your bike, and go south to Hearthome City. As soon as you leave Route 209 and enter that gateway room to Hearthome City, you should have an egg waiting for you. Go back and talk to the bald man outside of the Daycare to get your egg. If you have the Daycare Check-up Poketech app, you will see an egg appear between your two Pokemon as soon as you enter the gateway.

Pomeg Berry glitch

First make sure you have a Pomeg Berry and a Pokemon who has not had their HP lowered as much as possible already through Pomeg Berries. (If the latter is the case, the use of HP Ups on the Pokemon will be enough.) Get the Pokemon to a very low level of HP (1 or 2 HP). Once done, in the field, use the Pomeg Berry on the Pokemon. This will in turn cause the data in their HP to cycle back to the top of the counter, giving the affected Pokemon 65,535 HP--almost 90 times the possible maximum in the game.

Easy Pokemon in mansion

Go to the mansion, and save the game. Speak with Mr. Backlot to figure out what type of Pokemon is in the garden that day. If you need it, capture it. If it is not a Pokemon you need, turn off the power, restart the game, and talk to him again. Repeat this until you get all the desired Pokemon. Pokemon that can be found in the garden are Igglybuff, Cleffa, Clefairy, Ditto, Pichu, Meowth, Happiny, Chansey, Bonsly, Mime Jr., Eevee, Azurill, Marill, Plusle, Minun, and Castform.

Level up an egg

To successfully execute this glitch, you must first perform the Pomeg Berry Glitch, which involves using a Pomeg Berry on a Pokemon with 1 or 2 HP so that its HP loops to 65,535 (displayed as ?35 in-game). Do the glitch, but instead with only one Pokemon and an Egg in the party, making sure the Egg in the top-leftmost slot of the party in the Pokemon menu. Once done, you can then enter battles and use the Pokemon Egg as if it were a normal Pokemon.

It will function as a normal Pokemon: you can view the stats it will have upon hatching, it can level-up by defeating Pokemon, it can learn new moves, and can even evolve. You can also alter the Pokemon inside the Egg in otherwise-illegitimate ways. For example, Pikachu cannot normally know Thunder when hatching from an Egg at Level 5. However, with this glitch Pikachu can. Similarly, you can hatch Eggs with fully-evolved Pokemon.

Increase the Odds of Shiny Pokemon

Before the release of Pokemon X/Y in 2013 there was a 6 in 65,536 chance to find one, and 12 in 65,536 after: these odds are commonly rounded to 1 in 8,192 and 1 in 4,096, respectively. However, to increase the odds of finding Shiny Pokemon to as high as 1 in 1,366 you will need Pokemon from two different real-world regions. For example, a Raichu from the U.S. and a Ditto from Japan. When you breed them together in a daycare, the child (usually the female of the Pokemon being bred) is much more likely to be Shiny than normal, a process commonly referred to as the "Masuda Method".
