anybody noticed that when you trade with an NPC the pokemon they give you a pokemon with the exact same level as the one you gave him/her
you can literally get a level 5 Electrode this way! Electrode is the fastest 'mon in the game too by the way, level this bad boy up and get a free thunder Wave in every bite, MOFOs!
Yes. Known about that for years. And you can actually get a level 3 Electrode if you're playing on Red because you catch level 3 Pikachu's in Viridian Forest and give it a Thunder Stone, then trade it.
