Hi! This post has tips for making the game easier to play. I'm sorry if these are obvious and old, but some people seem lke they should know. Feel free to add your own tips on this post. And, if at anytime you want to ask me something directly (which probably won't happen; if it does, then it probably won't happen often) address your question to "pokemonfan". And jsyk, I'm a girl. Does that surprise you
Tip 1: This tip is to help reduce the use of Max Elixir and making sure your partners don't use unnessacary moves. First, open up the menu by pressing X. Then go down to "Team". Select a team member's name and go to "Check IQ". Unswitch the "Exclusive Move-User" skill. That way, your partner won't use moves every time if you battle; they'll use their regular attack move.
Tip 2: This tip is to help in battling. Okay, when you're battling a boss like Dialga. keep the "Exclusive Move-User" skill on. Then switch any moves you would like your partner to use in battle. That way, your partner will use the moves you want them to use. I also like switching on moves like Endure first, switching it off, and then switching on attack moves. So, my partner (Riolu) will be protected throughout the battle unless I repeat that process.
Tip 3: This tip is to help keep your Reviver Seeds when your need them. I personally don't like using my Reviver Seeds on my teamates other than my partner because if your other teamates die, it doesn't matter. You'll only get kicked out of the dungeon if you or your partner dies. So, do the same thing in which you go to the list of your teamates' IQ Skills. Switch off "Item Master". Then your teamates won't have used up a Reviver Seed if they die because if they die, it doesn't really matter.
Tip 4: This tip is to organize your Treasure Bag and Storage. You probably already know this, but the button in the bottom left corner of your Treasure Bag and Storage menu that looks like stairs organizes and groups the items on your Treasure Bag and Storage.
Tip 5: Just so you know, this tip isn't my own. Anyway, this tip is to help with Monster Houses. When you encounter a Monster House, try to go into a hallway, or pathway. This way, you'll battle one pokemon at a time rather than like 6 surrounding you.
Tip 6: This tip explains a secret about the Marowak Dojo. If you complete all of the mazes, a secret maze will open up. It took a long time to get through it and a lot of tries so good luck!
Tip 7: This tip is to help get past Keckleon if you try to steal from him. Once you try to steal from him (and you don't want to battle him; it's nearly impossible ha!) I suggest using a pure seed so that you'll get to the stairs with the stolen items. You can either go straight to the stairs or if you're worried about your teamates, then at this point use a rollcall orb. Then go straight to the stairs.
Tip 8: This tip is for the Secret Bazaar and the Keckleon Shops in dungeons. You may not want to, but sometimes it's good to bring in some extra money in dungeons just in case you find a Keckleon Shop or the Secret Bazaar!
Hope I helped! Again, sorry if these tips are obvious, old, and if they don't help you.
