I managed to breed for a male Pawniard (Adamant with Defiant) and I've been training the little guy, who I'm calling Casshern. (Get the joke?) So I have five of six covered but I'm lacking a sixth man. I haven't gone near the eighth Gym yet and I'm not quite ready for the E4...which in this case is a good thing.
Everyone is hovering at level 62--except for Dogū, at 63--and Casshern, at level 42. I really need to work on Casshern badly. He is severely lagging behind.
