So is there a particular way to raise my Pokemon's stats?
So, fully evolved Pokemon in this game is so crap. Ginchiyo turned from a beast to something that couldn't land a single hit.
Charizard is an absolute monster, for instance; Flamethrower and Flying-type give it insane range, and it can have Last Bastion, which makes it an unstoppable soloing machine. The hero's Glaceon makes Nobunaga trivial. Both Hideyoshi's Infernape and Kanbei's Chandelure have Fire Spin, which can be catastrophically powerful. Kai's Darmanitan has Fire Blast, which covers a truly impressive area. And for generics, Gyarados is just a terrifying beast as always.
You're bound to get duds, and fully-evolved Pokemon are slower in general. But Rhyperior, Luxray, and Serperior are pretty much the only Pokemon off the top of my head where it's almost certainly not worth evolving them. For most Pokemon it's a matter of playing style: faster and a bit weaker, or stronger but slower?
So I have Muneshige at 66.87% link with Staraptor but he didn't transform, and Ginchiyo wasn't anywhere near him. Are you unable to transform them until the main campaign is over? The same problem with Ginchiyo, and Motochika. I've met all their requirements but they won't evolve.

Is there an easier way to beat Spectra and her army? I only have a Sneasal as my only dark type, and I don't have any Ghost types with me. Plus her kingdom is mericless on my Pokemon.
It was kind of weird for them to mention it being a rare occurrence. Oh well, I guess this means I can one-up that annoying Masamune now since he keeps invading Cragspur...when Ginchiyo is stationed there. Crappy move or not, its still OHKOing everyone.
s Charizard is pretty nice, although I preffer my Charizard with one of my warlords who has the Added Bonus warrior skill. Charizard is strong as is, leaving enemies burned with diminished attack is wonderful.
Any pokemon with Fire Spin is great. Fire Spin with the right warrior skill is incredible. I had a flinching warrior skill, so with 4-5 hits in and FS's AoE, it was making my battles incredibly easy.
I would add Ampharos to those bad fully evolved Pokemon. Serperior is just incredibly weak. Rhyperior is worse than Luxray/Ampharos because it doesnt have the Range it needs to position itself for its attack. So if a pokemon is riding your @** your SOL. Accuracy sucks, and it can only be used once every other turn. God forbid you use him in snow...
Eevee, Jigglypuff, Rhyperior, Gallade, Gurrdurr, Kirlia, Charmeloen, Prinplup, Simisear, Simipour, Onix, Sandile, Sneasal, Tepig, Sewaddle, Venipede, Carnivine, Luxio, Machop, Timburr, Ralts, Spheal, Wooper, Starly, Staravia, Rufflet, Ekans, Pineco, Pichu, Drilbur, Meowth, Rhyhorn, Darmuka, Cubchoo, Pansage, Panpour, Beedrill, Aron, Arnith, Magikarp, and Chingling.
Rhyperior's only use for me is on a small battlefield; somewhere like Illusio, where most of the fights take place on each of the 4 main platforms, which are quite small. It can be played defensively really well there, using Shingen's ability to boost it's damage. Even if you do miss, Shingen's ability lasts for 3 turns, so you have plenty opportunity to smash something for an incredibly high hit, while having great Defense and Health, making it great for defending the banner.
