  148. 14-31 +         Use 2 candies atop Mt. Pyre (old strats, can get Altaria at +4 at Lv. 37)
  149.  
  150. NOTES
  151. - Must prioritize fast T&L fight when can get 122-144 on Lunatone (literally 25 seconds saved with no added risk)
  152. - Must prioritize outspeeding Norman's Vigoroth, Rival 3's Grovyle, Maxie 2's Mightyena and Matt's Golbat
  153. - Vigoroth without 295 exp. really sucks with any neutral
  154. - Slakoth can suck without good stats (need to check #s)
  155. - Winona fight really sucks with 2 candies, <14 +Attack and 20-27 Speed
  156.  
  157. (refine #s later)              
  158. (add Defense IVs for T&L)
  159.  
  160. PUTTING THE PUZZLE TOGETHER
  161. 14-31 +         Get 183 exp. and stop there (Vigoroth and Altaria are good as normal)
  162.                 Can tell with 27 @ 13 (and 24 @ 11 is 15+)
  163.                 Possibly get extra candies with 30-31 IV Sp. Atk (T&L)
  164.                 Definitely get extra candies with bad Speed
