Bad very bad, it takes up to 30 if it hasnt fainted and just play it safe, but maybe shorter if you do all possible to please it --- "I Shall Hump this Stack of Pancakes And Drink Teh Rums or I'm not Captain Drunken arse" Person666
Mine fainted a few times and still evolved at level 20.
i guess its not like DP/Pt cause it was hell trying to evolve it, i could never get it to evolve below 25 --- "I Shall Hump this Stack of Pancakes And Drink Teh Rums or I'm not Captain Drunken arse" Person666
I got Lucario at around level 17 and when it was Rioulu it did faint once, so I would say not that badly. --- GT: ozy8080. Blame the OCD and autocorrect. If your not playing a GAME for FUN your doing it wrong.
I think mine is about to evolve at level 18. Bianca says she's jealous, so that should mean it has max happiness. I've had my Riolu from level 5 and haven't let it faint once. --- HOME ROWED they're not rocks, they're minerals
I had given it a massage shortly beforehand, but I had Azurill evolve at level 19 - just a level away from Marill learning Aqua Tail. :) Not planned; simple dumb luck. (This is relevant - Azurill and Riolu evolve the same way, except that Riolu must evolve during the day and Azurill cares not. They also have the same base happiness.) --- Creator of Jay's Journey (see quote!) "It's not ten years old! Therefore, it sucks!" - Nostalgia whores everywhere
It mainly depends on how much time will you spend walking with him. Mine did evelve around level 17-19 while fainting once or twice. My Leavanny on the other hand evolved on level 21 just after evolving into Swadloon. Almost same thing with my Globat (i cathed him on level 15 to be exact). It's just take a few more rounds around Castelia City with the bike.
