FR/LG VS Seeker

FireRed and LeafGreen contain what I find to be the most useful method of rebattling beaten trainers yet. By standing with a few trainers on-screen and using this tool, any trainers who want a rematch will get two exclamation marks over their heads and start jumping up and down or raising their hands to get your attention. Some of them will even level up their Pokémon as you go along in the game, and end up with some quite powerful ones. When the Elite Four are using Pokémon around level 70, it will have become a bit of a pain to train all those level 40-50 Pokémon you've got - unless you know where to find those VS Seeker trainers who level their Pokémon up to around that level. I will list trainers with Pokémon of other level ranges as well, although they will most likely not be as useful. They are sorted primarily by the level of their highest-leveled Pokémon and secondarily by the total experience points they give.

Note that if you battle the trainer and he or she has lower-leveled Pokémon than shown here, don't worry; you just need to battle them again a couple of times and their Pokémon will level up (although I'm fairly sure beating the Elite Four is a necessity for some of the very highest-leveled ones). This shows their final levels. Also note that the experience points could possibly be off by a couple of points if the experience was split between many Pokémon when I battled the trainer, since the game rounds down. I figured it didn't matter enough to battle the trainer again for the exact value, but if you really feel like it and know better, you can of course correct me on some.

The effort points each Pokémon and each trainer in total give are now also in the list. By each Pokémon, they are shorthanded as HP for Hit Points, ATK for Attack, DEF for Defense, SPA for Special Attack, SPD for Special Defense and SPE for Speed. (Be sure not to get SPD confused with Speed.)

Click the word "Location" for a screenshot in which the female (if in Kanto) or male (if in Sevii Islands) main character is facing the trainer in question; I include descriptions of how to get there too, however, and if I have accomplished my goal, those should be clear enough for you to find the trainer even without viewing the screenshot.

High-Level Training Spots

Sometimes you just want to be able to train your Pokémon quickly and easily, and since the VS Seeker requires 100 steps between uses, it is always optimal to get as many trainers who give as much experience as possible on-screen at the same time. This section aims at giving you ideas for good training spots. If you know of a great one I haven't discovered, you are encouraged to contact me and tell me about it.

Location: Route 16

Number of Pokémon: 13

Levels: 28-49

Total EXP: 13427

Notes: It's not a very good spot compared to others - not really a lot of experience, but a lot of trainers and an awful lot of Pokémon to plough through - but I'm mentioning it for two reasons. One, it's great for slightly weaker Pokémon that can't handle battling everything in the other training spots without healing in between, especially since only two of them are using relatively high-leveled Pokémon and the others are pretty much something you'll faint easily in one hit, and two, it's Psychic-training heaven, since all their Pokémon are Poison or Fighting-types.

It does have the disadvantage of one of the battles being a double battle, however - if it's only one particular Pokémon you're training, it won't get quite all that experience.

Location: Sevault Canyon, Seven Island

Number of Pokémon: 10

Levels: 52-56

Total EXP: 19016

Notes: Pretty close to a healing spot, namely the house a little lower on the route in which a man offers to let you do the "Chansey Dance" which heals your Pokémon (without a doubt one of the silliest things ever to grace the Pokémon games after "I like shorts"). The types are rather mixed.

Location: Sevault Canyon, Seven Island

Number of Pokémon: 10

Levels: 52-56

Total EXP: 20239

Notes: You can't go wrong when you can get those two (what I'm fairly sure are the top two trainers in the game in terms of total experience) in one use of the VS Seeker. Additionally, both of them are standing just by the Chansey Dance house (which admittedly might be a little worse, since then you'll have to run randomly around to recharge the VS Seeker's battery between fighting them). Very mixed types, as one would expect of Cooltrainers.

EV Trainers

Tired of battling wild Pokémon and want to get some good trainers to battle for your effort training? Look no further than here.

Hit Points

There aren't a lot of trainers that give very much HP in FR/LG, unfortunately, but the following all give four HP and nothing else and are not too difficult to access:

Lass Julia

Location: Route 8. From Lavender Town, walk out the left exit and she is the first trainer you'll see when you follow the road down, standing just by the tres and facing left.

Pokémon: Clefairy lv. 22 (319 EXP, 2 HP), Clefairy lv. 22 (319 EXP, 2 HP)

Total EXP: 638

Total Effort Points: 4 HP

Reward: 352P

Twins "First 2-on-2" Eli & Anne

Location: Route 8. From Lavender Town, walk out the left exit and follow the road down, left, up again and then left again. They're standing together just above the road.

Pokémon: Clefairy lv. 28 (408 EXP, 2 HP), Jigglypuff lv. 28 (456 EXP, 2 HP)

Total EXP: 864

Total Effort Points: 4 HP

Reward: 672P

Twins Joy & Meg

Location: Bond Bridge on Three Island. Head left from the town and follow the only possible path: up stairs, down, left, up another set of stairs and finally up the stairs on the right. They're standing there side by side.

Pokémon: Clefairy lv. 49 (714 EXP, 2 HP), Clefairy lv. 49 (714 EXP, 2 HP)

Total EXP: 1428

Total Effort Points: 4 HP

Reward: 1176P

Attack

The definite best person to battle here is Fisherman Tommy, who has a team of not-so-high-leveled Goldeen and Seaking for a total of 8 Attack Effort Points:

Fisherman Tommy

Location: Kindle Road near One Island. Surf right and up from One Island until you come to a beach; go up that entire island (keep to the left) and then enter the water again. Surf upwards until you come to a little sand island on the right that has a Fisherman on it, right below Mt. Ember. That is Tommy.

Pokémon: Goldeen lv. 33 (784 EXP, 1 ATK), Goldeen lv. 33 (784 EXP, 1 ATK), Seaking lv. 35 (1275 EXP, 2 ATK), Seaking lv. 35 (1275 EXP, 2 ATK), Seaking lv. 35 (1275 EXP, 2 ATK)

Total EXP: 5393

Total Effort Points: 8 Attack

Reward: 1260P

However, he takes a little long to reach (not to mention Surfing, where you will be finding bunches of annoying Tentacool you don't want), so you may prefer somebody like Fisherman Ronald, who gives one less Attack effort point but is a lot more accessible:

Fisherman Ronald

Location: Route 21, below Pallet Town. If you Surf down the route, you will soon come to two sand islands with Fishermen standing on them; he is the one on the left island.

Pokémon: Seaking lv. 28 (1020 EXP, 2 ATK), Goldeen lv. 28 (666 EXP, 1 ATK), Seaking lv. 28 (1020 EXP, 2 ATK), Seaking lv. 28 (1020 EXP, 2 ATK)

Total EXP: 3726

Total Effort Points: 7 Attack

Reward: 2016P

Then again, if you're feeling like some EXP and are using a pretty high-leveled Pokémon, you may want to just go with Cooltrainer Leroy and switch out when he sends out his Slowbro and Kangaskhan. Remember that he is right by the Chansey Dance house, so even though reaching him from a location you can Fly to is tedious, it won't be difficult to heal.

Cooltrainer "Most Experience for a Single VS-Seekerable Trainer in the Game" Leroy

Location: Sevault Canyon, Seven Island. From the town, go downwards on the bridge and through the grass patch below that. Then step up the stairs on the right, go down through another grass patch and a flight of stairs, all the way down through the grass, and then up the stairs on the right. Then just follow the path until you come to a large staircase; go down there, through the grass, and then either Rock Smash the rugged rock or walk around it through the grass. Go up the stairs on the left, and then head down until you have gone down another staircase. In the grass below, there are two Cooltrainers; he is the one that's further up.

Pokémon: Rhydon lv. 52 (2270 EXP, 2 ATK), Slowbro lv. 54 (1897 EXP, 2 DEF), Kangaskhan lv. 52 (1950 EXP, 1 HP), Machamp lv. 52 (2149 EXP, 3 ATK), Ursaring lv. 55 (2227 EXP, 2 ATK)

Total EXP: 10493

Total Effort Points: 1 HP, 7 Attack, 2 Defense

Reward: 1980P

Then there are a couple of trainers that give six points for Attack, but I can't be bothered to list those. If Fisherman Ronald's Goldeen and Seaking are giving you trouble for some reason, just press Ctrl+F in your browser and search for "6 Attack", which will show you the other options.

Defense

When training for Defense, Cycling Road is your best bet as a place to go, because it has the two trainers that give the most Effort Points in Defense, Biker William and Biker Ruben. Even better, Biker William's Pokémon are low-leveled. If shooting for more experience or just less time (since William has five Pokémon you need to beat but Ruben only three), however, Ruben will be a better choice.

Biker William

Location: The lower part of Cycling Road (Route 17). Near the bottom of Cycling Road (before the slope ends), it narrows a little into two clean lanes on which there are no trainers. Just above where it narrows, William is cycling around below a "lake". On Cycling Road, the best way to use the VS Seeker is to stop yourself in the slope by holding down B first and then pressing Start (or Select) while still holding B.

Pokémon: Koffing lv. 25 (610 EXP, 1 DEF), Weezing lv. 25 (925 EXP, 2 DEF), Koffing lv. 25 (610 EXP, 1 DEF), Koffing lv. 25 (610 EXP, 1 DEF), Weezing lv. 25 (925 EXP, 2 DEF)

Total EXP: 3680

Total Effort Points: 7 Defense

Reward: 500P

Biker Ruben

Location: The very top of Cycling Road (Route 16). There are six trainers on bikes there; he is the leftmost one in the upper row.

Pokémon: Weezing lv. 48 (1779 EXP, 2 DEF), Weezing lv. 48 (1779 EXP, 2 DEF), Weezing lv. 48 (1779 EXP, 2 DEF)

Total EXP: 5337

Total Effort Points: 6 Defense

Reward: 960P

Special Attack

Engineer Bernie is definitely your best bet here. Three Pokémon, six Special Attack Effort Points, and only level 28. The bad part is, of course, Magneton's many resistances. Higher-leveled Pokémon might want to try PKMN Ranger Madeline, with two level 55 Vileplume and also six Special Attack Effort Points, but she isn't the easiest trainer in the world to access.

Engineer Bernie

Location: Route 11. Walk down as soon as you enter the open area with the grass, road and trainers, and then walk right on the road until you come to a bald man in a white shirt. This is Bernie.

Pokémon: Magneton lv. 28 (966 EXP, 2 SPA), Magneton lv. 28 (966 EXP, 2 SPA), Magneton lv. 28 (966 EXP, 2 SPA)

Total EXP: 2898

Total Effort Points: 6 Special Attack

Reward: 1344P

PKMN Ranger Madeline

Location: Canyon Entrance, Seven Island. From the town, go downwards on the bridge and through the grass patch below that. Then step up the stairs on the right, go down through another grass patch and a flight of stairs, and you will see two Pokémon Rangers in the grass below. She is the one on the left.

Pokémon: Vileplume lv. 55 (2167 EXP, 3 SPA), Vileplume lv. 55 (2167 EXP, 3 SPA)

Total EXP: 4334

Total Effort Points: 6 Special Attack

Reward: 1980P

However, if Bernie and his Magneton's resistances are giving you trouble, you might just want to shoot a little lower and try Picnicker Kindra instead, or even Swimmer Female Abigail, although she requires a little Surfing:

Picnicker Kindra

Location: Route 15, fourth trainer you see below the ledge after you come out of the gatehouse from Fuchsia City and head right.

Pokémon: Gloom lv. 28 (792 EXP, 2 SPA), Oddish lv. 28 (468 EXP, 1 SPA), Oddish lv. 28 (468 EXP, 1 SPA)

Total EXP: 1728

Total Effort Points: 4 Special Attack

Reward: 560P

Swimmer Female Abigail

Location: Ember Path near One Island. If you swim right from One Island, she is just there on a little sand island.

Pokémon: Psyduck lv. 35 (600 EXP, 1 SPA), Psyduck lv. 36 (616 EXP, 1 SPA), Golduck lv. 37 (1378 EXP, 2 SPA)

Total EXP: 2594

Total Effort Points: 4 Special Attack

Reward: 148P

Special Defense

The most convenient person here is definitely Aroma Lady Miah. Her two Bellossom, while high-leveled, have many weaknesses, and they give six points total, the highest you're going to get from one trainer when it comes to Special Defense:

Aroma Lady Miah

Location: Canyon Entrance, Seven Island. From the town, go downwards on the bridge; she'll be in a flower patch on the right just as you've crossed the bridge.

Pokémon: Bellossom lv. 50 (1971 EXP, 3 SPD), Bellossom lv. 50 (1971 EXP, 3 SPD)

Total EXP: 3942

Total Effort Points: 6 Special Defense

Reward: 1400P

However, if you feel like something a bit lower-leveled, you can try Swimmer Female Amara. There aren't a lot of other good choices, unfortunately.

Swimmer Female Amara

Location: Treasure Beach, or well, technically on the way to Treasure Beach. From One Island, Surf out from the pier and then go down. You'll see her on the way.

Pokémon: Seel lv. 36 (771 EXP, 1 SPD), Seel lv. 36 (771 EXP, 1 SPD), Dewgong lv. 36 (1357 EXP, 2 SPD)

Total EXP: 2899

Total Effort Points: 4 Special Defense

Reward: 144P

Speed

Now, this is something else. Speed is the easiest stat to effort train, ever. First and foremost, we have Picnicker Susie, whose five Pokémon give a whopping total of 12 Effort Points for Speed:

Picnicker Susie

Location: The Silence Bridge part of Route 13. If you go down from Route 12, she will be the third trainer you meet after entering route 13.

Pokémon: Pidgeot lv. 52 (1915 EXP, 3 SPE), Persian lv. 52 (1648 EXP, 2 SPE), Raticate lv. 52 (1291 EXP, 2 SPE), Raichu lv. 52 (1359 EXP, 3 SPE), Persian lv. 52 (1648 EXP, 2 SPE)

Total EXP: 7861

Total Effort Points: 12 Speed

Reward: 1040P

However, her Pokémon are rather high-leveled, and it takes a little while to reach her, so you might want to settle for a bit less. Lass Megan gives ten Effort Points for Speed in four Pokémon and then has a Nidorino, which you might either want to beat with the Pokémon you're training (if it's a physical attacker) or just switch:

Lass Megan

Location: Route 8. From Lavender Town, walk out the left exit and follow the road down, left, up again and then left again until you come to a cluster of four trainers standing together. She is the bottom one.

Pokémon: Pidgeot lv. 46 (1695 EXP, 3 SPE), Raticate lv. 47 (1167 EXP, 2 SPE), Nidorino lv. 47 (1188 EXP, 2 ATK), Persian lv. 47 (1489 EXP, 2 SPE), Raichu lv. 48 (1254 EXP, 3 SPE)

Total EXP: 6793

Total Effort Points: 2 Attack, 10 Speed

Reward: 768P

If you like trainers with only two Pokémon that give six Effort Points in the stat in question, you might want to consider Picnicker Becky:

Picnicker Becky

Location: Route 15 above the ledge. You need to go right along the length of the route to get to a Cuttable tree above you, Cut it and then go left; she's the first trainer you come across.

Pokémon: Raichu lv. 54 (1411 EXP, 3 SPE), Raichu lv. 54 (1411 EXP, 3 SPE)

Total EXP: 2822

Total Effort Points: 6 Speed

Reward: 1080P

On the other hand, if you don't care about being quick or getting a lot of experience and just want it easy, nothing beats the good old staple six-Magikarp Fisherman:

Fisherman "Why the Hell Haven't You Evolved Those Already" Wade

Location: Route 21, below Pallet Town. If you Surf down the route, you will soon come to two sand islands with Fishermen standing on them; he is the one on the right island.

Pokémon: Magikarp lv. 47 (201 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 47 (201 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 47 (201 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 47 (201 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 47 (201 EXP, 1 SPE), Magikarp lv. 47 (201 EXP, 1 SPE)

Total EXP: 1206

Total Effort Points: 6 Speed

Reward: 3384P

And if you want it really low-leveled, you can always go with Bird Keeper Perry.

Bird Keeper Perry

Location: Route 13, the "maze". He is situated right at the top of it somewhere in the middle, facing right and blocking one passage of the maze.

Pokémon: Spearow lv. 25 (310 EXP, 1 SPE), Pidgey lv. 25 (294 EXP, 1 SPE), Pidgey lv. 25 (294 EXP, 1 SPE), Spearow lv. 25 (310 EXP, 1 SPE), Spearow lv. 25 (310 EXP, 1 SPE)

Total EXP: 1518

Total Effort Points: 5 Speed

Reward: 600P

Hope that helped.
