Quicker way to get spore?

0 votes

Foongus learns spore at lvl 50, but Amoongus learns it at LEVEL 62, WHY. So basically, if I level grind at E4, will it be quicker to get spore if (I have exp point power levels up to 3 btw) if Foongus holds a lucky egg or an everstone?

it has always been like this, pokemon learn moves that both forms get at lower levels than if they're in their evolved forms.  you have to choose between power or learning a move earlier.  there are also moves that you may miss if you wait to evolve or may miss out on if you evolve early.

That other answer was a little cryptic, so let me help you out.

It's easy to figure out which one's faster if you do the math. Let's say you have a level 1 Foongus with an Everstone. To reach level 50, it must gain 125,000 exp. points.

To get Amoonguss to level 62, it must gain 238,328 exp. points, which is more, except you have the lucky egg, which makes it get experience at 1.5x the normal rate. So to compare the two, let's divide it:

238328 / 1.5 = 158,885

So even with the Lucky Egg, it would still take longer.

So to answer your question, it takes less time if you leave it as a Foonguss.

Oh, but there's more! You can give your Foonguss a Lucky Egg and mash the B button every time it tries to evolve. That way, it can reach level 50 at a comparative 83,333 exp. points! Of course, canceling the evolution every time it levels up can be a pain, so it's your choice.

And as a side note, going to Cafe le Wow is a ton faster than the Elite Four if you want to level stuff up fast (assuming you're playing XY).

Hope I helped!
