Heal at Any Time, Even During the Elite Four!
Note: This requires a second DS and copy of Pokemon Blask or White. Using the C-Gear's Infrared trade function combined with a second DS and game, you can pull out various Pokemon from your team between each battle with the Elite Four. As you can trade from your boxes, you can switch your teams up and simultaneously heal them if you are having trouble with the Elite Four. With this same method, you can train more than six Pokemon with each visit as well.
Super Fast Day Care Leveling
You gain experience at the Day Care based on the amount of steps you take, one step for each point of experience. (It averages about 2 EXP per second, 120 EXP per minute, 7200 EXP per hour etc.). Bring a lot of cash when you pick up your Pokemon! Note: The moves that a Pokemon learns whilst in the Day-Care Centre will be taught to them, replacing random moves as the Day-Care Lady sees fit.
1.Drop two of your Pokemon off at the Day Care on Route 3.
2.Go to the Battle Subway in Nimbasa City.
3.Position your character in the middle of the round path that encircles the column in the Subway.
4.Find something heavy to set on the DOWN and A buttons on your DS. Rig your DS so these buttons are held down and you can leave and come back later.
5.Leave your DS On for a long time (Leave your DS Charger plugged in) while your character technically takes many steps.
6.Return to the Day-Care Lady for your Pokemon.
Change Your Online Player Class and Nature
Open up your X Menu and select the option that has your name on it (your trainer card), and it'll bring you to a screen that shows all of your gym badges. From here, click the icon on the bottom left of the screen to bring up your trainer card. There are 2 categories underneath your name that you can change. The top one is your class, and the second one is your nature. This effects how you appear in the Wi-Fi rooms or on your friend's DS when in a trade, battle, etc. At the very bottom there's even a personal quote you can enter that others can see when they look at your trainer card.
You must first have the National Dex. You must also have Thundurus and Tornadus in your party. Thundurus is from Pokemon Black and Tornadus from White so expect to trade for one of them.
Once you have both Tornadus and Thundurus in your party, head to the Abundant Shrine off of Route 14 and click on the shrine. Landorus will fly down to fight you. It is level 70 and has a low catch rate so be prepared with plenty of high level pokemon, pokeballs and medicines.
Battle the Rich for Lots of Money
Go to Undella Town and go west until you find a big mansion. The rich kid here will battle you every day for more money (make sure you have the Amulet Coin equipped). Each battle will be harder than the previous one but with more reward money.
The Masuda Method
Usually, the chance of encountering a Shiny Pokemon is 1 in 8192. By breeding two Pokemon in the Daycare that are from two different regions (Japan, Europe and America), the chance of breeding a Shiny is increased to 1 in 2048. The Pokemon cannot be from the same different region, but one from one region and the other from another region.
TMs That Change Across Games
There are some TM's that you might want to consider teaching your Pokemon before you transfer them over into the next generation. These are the 4th Generation TMs that will be replaced with a different move in the 5th generation. Therefore you should think about teaching a Pokemon that move before you transfer it. Probably one of the most notable TM changes is the replacement of Stealth Rock, so if you want a good Stealth Rocking Pokemon you better teach it in HeartGold, Soulsilver, Pearl, Diamond, or Platinum before you transfer it to Black or White.

Catch a Pokemon with a Good Nature
Note: This only works for the few Pokemon that you have a choice to battle, in other words, Pokemon that you have to interact with to battle them. An example would be fighting Victini.
Go up to the Pokemon, save the game, battle it and capture it. Look at the nature of the Pokemon to see if it's the nature you want. If it is, great, but if it isn't you can turn the game off, turn it back on, and resume at the last save point, which would be before you battled the Pokemon. Once you battle the Pokemon again it will have a different nature. Doing this will allow you to battle and capture it over and over until you get the right nature.
To get easy experience throughout the game, stock up on the highest repel you can get or place a Spell Tag on your lead pokemon and walk through the grass until you confront an Audino. Defeat Audino for a massive experience bonus. To multiply the amount, you can use a Lucky Egg or use traded pokemon.
Speed Up Egg Hatching by 50%
Having a pokemon with the ability "Flame Body" in your party will reduce the number of steps it takes to hatch an egg by 50%. (Note: A second pokemon with Flame Body will not additionally reduce steps.)
Pokemon that can have the Flame Body ability include Ponyta, Rapidash, Magby, Magmar, Magmortar, Slugma, Magcargo, Moltres, Heatran, Litwick, Lampent, Chandelure, Larvesta, and Volcarona.
