I don't really favor any Pokémon in general. I just cycle the optimize button until I see a configuration I like (I do like having Sabeleye as my mega, though).

Same here. 100% truth here.

Umm… Care to have some gravy?

Oh wow Lopunny is pretty though.

So far the only normal level that I have had to retry more than once to beat.

I must say I'm enjoying this far more than I ever thought I would.

I've pretty much just been using my turns to keep progressing rather than going back to pick up any Pokémon I've missed. Makes it feel like I'm not wasting any turns. It can be kind of annoying not catching a certain 'mon twice in a row, especially after doing well on the stage. I also refuse to waste my Great Balls on just anyone.

It's advisable to get at least two of each type.

The later levels tend to rely on the elemental match ups.

what are the catch rates on the ex stages? thinking about saving my great balls for those

My avatar is from here

StableInvadeel

The only extra stage I have managed to beat is Lucario, it's base catch rate was 1% and each remaining second became another extra 1%

It's brutal I know.

Those will require a lot of grinding and/or luck.

Got Mew yesterday from the event. But I can't beat the Expert levels... Any advise on how to beat Absol (EX -1) quickly and with a chance to capture him?

Makes sense. I'm also trying to use the same Pokémon when I need their type to help with levelling (until I get someone much stronger like their evolution).

For a game that I haven't spent a cent on, it isn't that bad... yet. I'm currently around stage 78, so maybe about halfway through?

I find it incredible that you are already at stage 78. I thought I'd been playing the game a lot, and I am only at stage 22ish. I do keep replaying stages until I catch the Pokemon, and I have been trying to get S-rank on everything. Are you doing that too?

@utopianmachine No, I seem to have 31 non-S-ranks out of 89 cleared in main mode, and there are many Pokemon I haven't caught. And by clearing the stages only once I have gained more money per match than you - 100 coins vs 30 coins for repeated wins.

Still, I've now found myself against a brick wall called Mega Mawile; in spite of buying that 5 extra turns thing I haven't manage to beat that yet. Sounds like I'll try to catch more Pokemon and try to train the ones supposedly strong against that one.

Ah, I see. Different ways to play. I also keep retrying the Expert Stages, trying to catch those really low-catch-rate Pokemon. And yeah, I noticed the money different in first time vs later tries, but I haven't spent any in-game currency yet. Just waiting to see if I'll ever need to. I suppose if you just keep trying all the stages forever, you're bound to eventually beat the percentages and catch everything.

So far that I've seen. It seems they start at level 1, and you level them up through using them and winning in battle.

Oh, does it? Good to know.

What I can't figure out is why Pokemon not in my party also appear on the battlefield sometimes. I haven't seen any in-game tips that say why that is yet.

They're a different type of interference. Instead of rock or unbreakable blocks, they throw in Pokemon that won't benefit you and your matches. For example, I recently beat a Mega-Mawile stage where Eevee's would appear to stop me from making solid combo chains - Normal is ineffective against Steel, on top of that.

It's funny because the dragon pokemon I have found have that kind of interference, and dragon is effective against dragon so they usually end up helping me.

Definitely a difficulty spike to those Expert levels. I'm on level 73, have caught all of them up to that point with an S (S rank is fairly easy, I think) rank on all levels. No money spent.

But I can't catch an Expert Pokemon. I've beaten the level, but the Catch rate is so low.

A person without a sense of humor is like a wagon without springs. It's jolted by every pebble on the road.

I managed to catch Absol when I beat the stage with ~32 seconds remaining, and Lucario with 51 or 52. For the latter I think I had to use 2500 Coins on a Super Ball, though, as I was fed up with it and needed him desperately for Mega Mawile.

The catch rates there are ridiculous nonetheless. I imagine I'll leave most of the Expert levels for after I'm done with the Normal ones, perhaps trying to catch one now and then if they can come in really handy for the more complicated Normal stages.

In terms of game progression, I've beaten level 60, and have caught all Pokémon up to that point as well (I haven't S ranked all of them, but most of them. Unless you finish with 1 or 0 moves, you seem to always get S).

I haven't paid attention to the Expert levels, though. I tried one a few days ago, and haven't went back since losing, lol.
