First off let me start this post by stating that I finally obtained every trade evolution item needed for trades in Pokémon Moon. Now that objective has been cleared I now need to figure out how to trade these Pokémon. I decided to buy a second 3DS, the new 3DS XL to be exact, and tried the process out by trading between my copies of X and Alpha Sapphire on my two 3DS.

                Through trading between X and Alpha Sapphire I obtained 16 Pokémon. This included Pokémon that needed and did not need items held to evolve. I will start with the Pokémon that did not need items to evolve after being traded. Pumkaboo evolved into Gourgeist. Boldore evolved into Gigalith. Gurdurr evolved into Conkeldurr. Kadabra evolved into Alakazam. Graveler evolved into Golem. Haunter evolved into Gengar. When I traded Shelmet for Karrablast, Shelmet evolved into Accelgor and Karrablast evolved into Escavalier. Now on the Pokémon that needed to hold items to evolve after being traded. Spritzee held Sachet to evolve into Aromatisse. Swirlix held Whipped Dream to evolve into Slurpuff. Dusclops held Reaper Cloth to evolve into Dusknoir. Rhydon held Protector to evolve into Rhyperior. Scyther held Metal Coat to evolve into Scizor. Slowpoke held King’s Rock to evolve into Slowking. One Clamperl that held Deepseatooth evolve into Huntail. While another Clamperl evolved into Gorebyss when it held Deepseascale. I am going to trade some the same Pokémon again in Moon with another copy of Moon or Sun latter on, so for right now these Pokémon will stay in either X or Alpha Sapphire.

                Although most of my Pokémon came from trades I did catch one Pokémon and had four non-trade evolutions. I caught Uxie in Alpha Sapphire, in the Nameless Cavern during 8:00 pm and 9:00 pm, making it the last of the trio from Gen 4 to be obtained. Then I evolved Klink into Klang at level 38. After that Tynamo evolved into Eelektrik at level 39. Eelektrik evolved into Eelktross when a Thunder Stone was applied to Eelektrik. On a normal week, any number of the previous mentioned PokÃmon would be made the cover Pokémon. However, that honor goes to Tangrowth which evolved from Tangela after learning Ancient Power at level 38. The two reasons behind picking Tangrowth are that I like the look of the Pokémon and I did not know Tangela evolved.

                After 21 Pokémon have been obtained I am now I only have 149 Pokémon left to obtain. To break this number down by generation, I would need 17 from Gen 1, 28 from Gen 2, 22 from Gen 3, 31 from Gen 4, 50 from Gen 5, and 1 from Gen 6. Going forward I will be focusing on obtaining, breeding, trading, and evolving as many Pokémon in Alpha Sapphire and in X as I can. While transferring Pokémon from Soul Silver, Leaf Green, Diamond, and Black or transferring Pokémon to Moon sparingly. Until next time, the PokeQuest continues.
