Basically, I've just got my 7th badge and I want to wait for my girlfriend to catch up to roughly where I am before I continue the story any furthur (she's only just got the 3rd badge, she doesn't have the time that I have to play as much). I've been battling a little in the Chateau but I dont want to overlevel my pokemon too much and make the 8th badge/Elite 4 too easy. Is there anything I can do to take a break in the storyline that wont involve too much pokemon levelling? Something like the Battle Subway or PWT would have been perfect.
You can try breeding Pokemon for competitive battling, or breeding for shinies using that method I can't remember the name of (I think it involves using a foreign Ditto or something like that). Take all your useless bred Pokemon and throw them into Wonder Trade.
You can try completing your Pokedex to the best of your abilities, if you haven't already done so.
My personal suggestion: play a different game. lol
Can anyone tell me if there are any mono-type challenges post-game, like the Type Tournaments in the PWT? Because I'd love to start training some more pokemon to take on those, if they exist.
No, I miss those terribly. There's the Battle Maison which has 20 rounds of Singles, Doubles, Triples (I think?), Rotational, and something else. That's pretty much it, along with the Battle Institute, which is the same thing but just 5 straight rounds, regardless if you win or lose.
