Actually in hindsight I'm kinda greatful. I managed to start again, give a Puplip back to my pal & I'm keeping the levels of my Pokemon more even than before.
Before I ended up using some too often & others not enough. My Turtwig was Lv 12 & my Starly was still Lv 5. Right now I'm about to go into the first gym & all my Pokemon are Lv 7 or 8
I've got my new Pal Code
Code: 2106 1422 2345
