Got a cheat or hot tip for this game? Found a secret, or a strategy for success?

Easy EXP and Money

During your adventure you will come across a News Reporter and her Cameraman, they are named Gabby and Ty. You will first find them on Route 111 after you have used rock smash to eliminate the rocks blocking the path north of Mauvile.

The 2nd time you meet Gabby and Ty they will be located on Route 118 and the 3rd meeting is at Route 120 after Fortree city. When you defeat them a 3rd time they will head back to Route 111.

Their patterns are always the same and when you beat them they will always travel to the next location. Repeatedly defeat them 255 times, after which they will remain stationary at Route 111 forever. You can then beat them, travel up and left to reload the area, and then ride back down to re-battle them.

This is the BEST place in the game to train Egg mons, all you require is a 2nd Pokemon with an AOE (Area of Effect) attack like Earthquake or Surf; make sure your eggmon has Protect as a technique and that your sweeper is at a high enough level to either OHKO both pokemons or be strong enough to KO the last Pokemon on the 2nd turn. Within half a day you will be at 9999999 Gold. Also note that you will gain 2 HP and 2 Sp.A EVs each time you win against Gabby and Ty.

Good luck becoming the BEST.

How to get regieleki and regidrago
To get regieleki and regidrago you must have the extension DLC for both isle of armor and crown tundra. When in the crown tundra follow all of the objectives until you get to the missions. To get the regi's you need to do the second mission, which is to collect all the regi's. To collect the regi's you need to find the temple and to enter will need to do a riddle for each of them. The temples are spread across crowned tundra. Once in the temple you must light every dot except the last temple where you have to do a pattern to get one of the regi's you will need to catch the regi's once you entered the temple. Dusk balls are the best for catching the regi's. When you collected regirock, regice, and registeel you can enter the temple with regieleki and regidrago. But beware once you choose a regi you can't get the other regi. The only way to get the other regi is to trade.
