I want to use the subway trick in Pokemon white, where I go around the subway in a circle since you get 1 exp ever step you take. I fear that my Pokemon will not obey me if they become too high of level.

plz just tell me

To clarify, badges allow Pokemon you receive in trades, transfers, and certain gifts (Like the Zorua in B2/W2 or the event Beldum in OR/AS) to obey you at increasingly high levels. This is obviously to prevent the player from sweeping the game with a powerful, high-level Pokemon from another save.

All the Pokemon who fall under this do so because of their Trainer ID, which is different for every save. If a Pokemon has a Trainer ID that differs in any way from that of your current save's ID, badges are required to have them obey. If a Pokemon has a Trainer ID that is completely identical to yours, they will obey you no matter what. Pokemon you have personally caught (and the majority of gift Pokemon) have the ID of your save.

So, to answer your question, yes. Your starter will obey you no matter what. You could level it to Level 100 without any badges and it will still always obey.

Yes, your starter will always obey you, along with any Pokemon you catch yourself in that specific save file, no matter how high of a level it is.

Hope I helped!

certain gym badhes earn you how high a pokemonsevel will be to obey (example lvl mew with 0 badge wouldnt listen)
this is a false answers
Shiny hunter luna You are right
Nope over level it without the proper badge and it won't work
That's for pokemon not caught in your game. If you catch it, it doesnt matter what level it is... you people should really look into it before accusing me of being false.
if your thinking of traded pokemon your still wrong its just they level up faster so their more likely to level over the badge requirement
Jfc I know that! I was talking about pokemon that YOU catch in YOUR save file! Stop trying to prove me wrong, already. I know what I'm talking about.
