Stat-boosting gems in X/Y?


Best Answer Firestorm, 26 October 2013 - 05:14 PM

Normal Gem is the only gem that has been discovered in the game. It is very likely that the other gems do not exist and will not exist given that Game Freak seems to be going for lower power on moves (nerfs to the the old 95 BP and 140 BP elemental staples).

Has anyone found stat boosting gems such as flying/fighting gems in pokemon X/Y yet? If so, how do you get them?

Just glancing through my guide, I think many of them are in pokeballs. Give me a minute.

[edit]

Or not. Apparently the only gem you can "find" is that Normal Gem with the dowsing machine in Terminal Cave.

And by the way,does the Normal Gem work on Normal Type attacks that get "converted" by abilities like Aerilate/Refrigerate?

Gems can be found in Gen6 by using rock smash ...

Anyone confirm this?

 

And by what method? I'm guessing the rock smash thing!

i cant confirm the rock smashing thing myself as i havent found any yet and im beginning to think that this may be one big troll and there are infact no type gems found in Gen 6 yet (besides normal gem of course ...)

 

Although if anyone is willing to test i would suggest rock smashing in Terminus cave first to see if they find anything

One theory I came up with is that they would appear between 8 and 9 like the mega stones. But rock smashing Terminus Cave sounds like a plan.

I heard that once you max your stylishness and unlock all the different furfrou styles, you go to the place in luminose city to get your furfrou groomed and the lady will give you the gem matching the respective style after you get your furfrou groomed in that style (so the deputy style gives ground gem, pirate style gives water gem, etc)

If you haven't found out by now, the normal gem doesn't work on converted moves.

It is super easy to max out your style. Just go to the pokeball emporium and buy luxery balls one at a time. Just keep mashing the A Button. I had to buy 150 balls then the Mega Stones in the stone emporium dropped to 10,000 and I was allowed into the botique. I will try out the Furfrou stuff tonight and let you guys know.

DUDE!!!! Thank you so much! I've been trying to get my style maxed out for the last 3 days now for Hatching Power, and this did the trick!

do you have to buy all the luxery balls at one time or can you buy it in chunks. I would really appreciate it if you'd help THX :D  :)  :D  :D  :)  :)

I bought 100 premier balls, 1 at a time, and the price of megastones dropped from 500,000 to 10,000. Just keep pressing A to buy them 1 at a time.

Yeah, I had a suspicion that this would be the case this generation when I saw the BP dropped. Bit of a shame since I'm a fan of them, but the change does make things a bit more interesting.

 

I've seen conflicting information on the web about various methods such as the above mentioned rock smashing, but without any concrete evidence or follow-up.

Personal experience: I did try rock smashing at terminus cave for about ~40minutes - no gems found. Haven't tested at various times of the day.

 

I also tried that furfou thing for fun, but I never really expected anything out of it.

 

Cheers everyone for the responses.

I found the Normal Gem in Terminus Cave using the Dowsing Machine. I suspect that they can either be found using only the DM or through smashing rocks.. currently doing a search though the entire region with the DM. Will post back here with anything I find.

I'd say it's likely we used up all the Dragon Gems during VGC 2012-2013. Too bad GameFreak neglected to mention they were a non-renewable resource. Time to start looking for alternative options. Solar Power, anyone?
