Currently, I am trying to complete my Pokedex in Y for Shiny Hunting. However, I'm only about halfway there, and there are a few Pokémon that I need to level up in order to evolve. I have Pokemon Bank, so I can grind levels in OR if I need to. Right now, the best places in each game to grind for levels seem to be:
Y: Victory Road - Horde Encounters
OR: Sky Pillar - Horde Encounters
If there are better options, than I'd appreciate if I were informed on the best one. However, if these are the best options, which one is better of the two, in terms of giving me the most efficient method for gaining EXP? In addition, please note that I do not have access to the legendary Chansey or Blissey, as Chansey is locked behind a Friend Safari that I do not have (Happinys can be found in OR, however). For convienence, I'll list the Pokemon spwans in each location:
Y's Victory Road:
- Geodude (Common) [Has Sturdy and gives least EXP]
- Floatzel (Uncommon) [Gives most EXP out of the 3]
- Lickitung (Rare)
OR's Sky Pillar:
- Golbat (60% spawn) [Gives most EXP out of the 3]
- Ariados (35% spawn)
- Swablu (5% spawn) [Gives least EXP]
Also, in Y, I have a Bellossom that has Petal Dance, Acid, and Dazzling Gleam to do spread damage and hit every Pokémon (it also has Sweet Scent for the Horde Battles). While I can simply transfer it to ORAS, Golbat and Ariados resist all of my spread moves, which could be problematic. When I grind exclusively in ORAS, I normally have 1 slot for my Sweet Scenter, 1 for my attacker, and 4 for my Pokémon I'm leveling up. These 4 are worse than the 5 extra slots I have in Y, and an extra slot saves quite a lot of time when level up for Pokedex completion.
Out of these two locations, which one is the best? In addition, are there any places in Gen 6 that are better than either of the two mentioned? Please let me know if there is any more information you need to know.
Thanks, and sorry if this is more on the complex side.
