Information for evolving by tameness: When you talk to the Night Trainer on Route 39, she tells you that because she caught her Meowth there, she can level it up easier and it becomes more tame. This is also true for your Pokemon. Visit the Pokemon Seer in Cianwood and she will tell you when and where you caught your Pokemon . Go there at that time and fight Pokemon.

It canhatch into one of seven Pokemon: Tyrogue, Igglybuff, Pichu, Cleffa, Magby, Elekid, or Smoochum. Whatever the Pokemon is, it will have Dizzy Punch. There are only two ways it can go in terms of stats. It will either be shiny with bad Attack, or it will be 0000 for DVs.
