ok, nevermind... after seeing gyarados' stupid strategy, i figured a way around it...
god, i REALLY hate fighting gyarados because the AI always finds the most irritating way to use it... and it didnt help that i didnt have anything strong against it.
except for gyarados, i managed to go through the elite four fairly easily.
i still dont see how people handled gyarados at lower levels, though... when it powers up to the point where it always goes first and kills even the strongest pokemon in one hit... that is just stupid.

Only place I found is the route before victory road and victory road itself. I use those routes and Restaurant Le Wow in Lumiose City to evolve Pokemon to complete my Kalos pokedex. The restaurant cost 100,000 pokedollars to enter lol but the trainers there have Pokemon level 65+. And in the end, you gain experience and they give you about 23 Balm Mushrooms which can be sold for about 143,000 pokedollars
