Wondering what are the minimum recommended stats for your Nidoran at Lv.8 for a smooth run, also stats at 23 Nidoking. Finally, I am brand new and have not done a full run yet, I have been running to LT.Surge and resetting to keep practicing the first half. My strategy is to then make a save and keep running the second half for practice later. Any recommended spots to consider a "half way" point?, or just a good spot to run to for first half practice? Going to start making videos of my runs when I can crack the top 200 for sure.
