Ugh... I can't seem to get my hatched Skitty to LG. After finding out what's wrong, I found out that I tried to trade way too early.
So, basically, I can't show my superior Skitty skills, but Meowth is always as good. Meow.
Until then, I'm going to train my Bulbasaur to learn Vine Whip and catch a Caterpie to evolve it.
