I thought that I should post an update regarding my Pokémon X progress.
At the moment, I'm trying to reach and then defeat the Elite 4. Unfortunately, the holidays kind of put a damper on things, keeping me busy and all that.
I was hoping to be past the Elite 4 by Xmas, since that's the condition, as I learned, to get certain pokémon that I was hoping to put out on Wonder Trade. The reasoning - which I originally saw on twitter - was that a lot of kids would be starting their Kalos adventures on Xmas, so we should supply them with decent wonder trades, once they start doing that. It's still not long after Xmas, so I'm still trying to do what I can. I also looked up some egg moves for a pokémon that appears later in the game, so, failing anything else, I can always hatch a bunch of little egglings for them.
(FYI, I have six badges, so I need two more before challenging the Elite 4.)
I'm still sticking with only using Generation VI pokémon. The core of my team so far is Greninja, Doublade, and Hawlucha. I've trained various things off and on. At the moment, I'm working on leveling an Inkay, though I'll probably have Meowstic on my team when I face the Elite 4.
I do want to mention that the Battle Chateau is a very nice feature. I basically get unlimited trainer battles, so I don't have to fight mere wild pokémon when I play catch-up on levels.
