To make the RPG mode a lot easier, stay a few hours in Pyrite Town's Duel Square, even though it is drawn as a circle. You can battle all six of the trainers there repeatedly. This makes purifying Shadow Pokemon a lot easier, and getting 99 of any desired items in the Pokemon Marts all over Orre, because they still keep giving you money. Unfortunately, you only receive a little less then the first cash prize that you received. For example, with the loner trainer on the right, Rider Vant, he will give you 300 for your first win, but every single time you defeat him after that it is 290. Although this takes time, their Pokemon are generally easy to defeat because they are at a low level and most of them are normal types. Note: Each of the Shadow Pokemon they used to have are now replaced with a different Pokemon (starting with lone trainer on right and going counter-clockwise. Also, the money amounts are the cash prizes that you win every time you win a battle with that trainer after the first battle.continue →

When the meter is only four "hate" bars long, your Pokemon will remember one of its original moves. When the meter is only three "hate" bars long, your Pokemon will start earning experience points, but will not be of any benefit until it is fully purified from hate. When the "hate" bar is only two bars long, it will remember a second move that you can use in battle alongside with Shadow Rush and the first one it remembered. When the meter is only one "hate" bar long, your move list will contain four moves, including Shadow Rush.
