So I've been training some more of my Pokemon. The aforementioned shiny Electrike evolved to Manectric, and I immediately gave her my Manectricite (or whatever that item is called) so she could Mega evolve. The Mega evolution wasn't that impressive to me, which I thought it kinda would be as a shiny (then again, this is after witnessing my shiny Gengar Mega evolve and look infinitely more awesome), but oh well. My two Espurrs I had been raising also evolved, so I can finally tell them apart when I play with them in Pokemon-Amie (they're different genders). My Lileep and Anorith also evolved, but I have yet to find a good Bug attack for the latter.
The other day I organized my boxes. Now I have a few boxes for Pokemon of a certain level: "19 and under", "Level 20-29", "Level 30-39", "Level 40-49", and "Level 50+". This will make it way easier to get together a similarly-leveled team for training. Additionally, I now have a box for "Wonder Trash", that is, the crappy Pokemon I get from Wonder Trades, but want to keep for the purposes of having a better chance at the lottery.
While training some of my Pokemon on Route 10, whenever I encountered a Sigilyph, I switched to my Shedinja, because the only attacks they know at their level are Psychic-type (and Shedinja can easily OHKO them with Shadow Claw). Same thing if I encountered a horde of Yanma, as all their attacks are Normal-type (and they stupidly think that using Foresight will help them). Often times I hate training a Shedinja because the vast majority of wild Pokemon know a move super-effective to it, but having one around has proven incredibly useful in situations like this. I'll have to make a note to do this to the Sawk on Route 11 and the Mr. Mime in Reflecting Cave as well.
Also, while training on Route 17, I had two Pokemon with Rock Slide in my party, so whenever a glacier or pile of snow showed up in the battlefield, I switched to one of those two Pokemon. I got four Snowballs and two NeverMeltIces this way, though I'll likely never use the former. I'll probably just sell them. Also on my training team was my Growlithe, who got to level 43 and learned Outrage. That really surprised me - a cute little puppy learning one of the most powerful Dragon attacks out there!?
I also issued a Writ of Challenge in the Battle Chateau, so hopefully I won't keep encountering Baron(esse)s with a single level 10 Pokemon (or Viscount/esses with level 15 Pokemon) anymore. I still like going in there though, especially with those Marchionesses with a pair of Audinos frequently appearing.
