This does work. You get on an acro bike and try to drive up one of the sand slopes that you need the mach bike to get up. Then, you put something heavy enough to press the up arrow and keep it held down, but not too heavy so it breaks your DS or GBA. Your Pokemon will be a huge level if you do it overnight. (This does not work in diamond or pearl) If you don't like that method, you have to keep walking or riding a bike. It doesn't matter where to, but every step is 1 experience point.

Here is a tip that many people do not know about the day care. You see, your Pokemon only level up when your character is in motion, in other words, they grow in experience while you are walking around. So, all you have to is move, and they grow in experience, and levels. So, ride your bike around everywhere, and leave it all night, with your character trying to go up a sand dune. Get something to press against the button, so that while you sleep, your character is still moving, and your Pokemon is growing levels.

Me to! Try putting like a small but fairly heavy stone on the key that you use to move and leave it overnight.

Neither my acro bike nor my mach seem to work for this trick in emerald. I am playing on my pc using vba. but its not working. It works really well for sapphire and ruby but not emerald. And now i can't defeat the elite 4.

This trick only works on Saphire and Ruby. It does not work on Emerald.
Guest answered:

When your Pokemon is in the daycare, go to one of the sand dunes with an acro bike. Then put something heavy on the up button (just heavy enough so it holds down) and do it overnight (you'll need the charger on) And your pokemon will be a huge level.

by sand dunes to you mean those slopes that allow you to clime up the mountain things?
Guest answered:

What I did was just tape the buttons and with my acro bike I went up a sand slope. It works!

Guest answered:

I just tried this, leveled to 41 OVERNIGHT!

Guest answered:

It works going up the mud slide but I'm wondering how much exp each step dose give you and the mud slide works with eather bike if you got you just don't have to get the run and go and I've got Pokemon up to level 40 anything past that takes some time for it to level but it dose take the night time and ad hours to game play but best to do it if you got a game cube with the game pack player it's great thats what I do

Where is this area

Beside vurdanturff i think u just ride on any bike up and down ect
Guest answered:

What kind of thing can you used to keep down the up button I once tried lot of pennis

Guest answered:

You don't have to use anything heavy actually all you have to do I s put like a folded up piece of paper or tape and close the ds or gba top screen and if you get it right position you can put it in your pocket and so anywhere you go you'll be able to check up on it if you want this method will work for everything except 4th gen. I'm pretty sure (diamond, pearl, platinum) and if you have black and white with 2 Pokemon in daycare you get double the experience although I'm not sure for both Pokemon or one

Guest answered:

Does this work for alpha sapphire?
Guest answered:

For ORAS, when you get to the Battle Resort put the Pokémon in the day care and go round the island and if you put something under the circle pad then it will move and you can do this while you go do something else

Guest answered:

I'm on a ruby ROM. Any cheat codes for instant leveling?

Guest answered:

Its easy! All you have to do is start here and sellotape your circle pad to go up! It's a continuous loop that will (if you leave if on overnight) level your Pokemon up to 100👍


Guest answered:

In Omega Ruby/Alpha Saphire, go to the Battle Resort. Put your Pokemon in the daycare. Get on your bike, and go to the left of the Pokemon center, where the water forms a corner where you can no longer go left or down. Once there, press up continually, and you will make a loop around the island as long as you hold up. I like to put something moderately heavy on the 'up' button on the control pad for a long period of time.

Guest answered:

If you want to do the same trick on emerald go to team skull base go to teleporter room and hold down. It's slower but works on emerald

Guest answered:

For emerald, if you go to the aqua hideout with the teleport pads you can use those. Find the area with several rows of them, and start by running down from the topmost one down to the middle one, which takes you back to the top one. Just hold Down key and have at it!

Guest answered:

You should also use it with the fast forward button that way it is 18 x fast when doing this cheat
