For more, pick up a copy of the Pokemon X & Y Official Kalos Region Pokedex & Postgame Adventure Guide.

Trade Pokemon with your friend Shauna

She’s waiting for you outside your home in Vaniville Town. In fact, she’ll accept whatever Pokemon you wish to trade, in exchange for her Chespin if you chose Fennekin at the start of the game, Fennekin if you chose Froakie or Froakie if you selected Chespin.

Visit the Sycamore Pokemon Lab to Pick Up the Poke Radar
