PostSubject: EV training guide. The basics   Tue May 25, 2010 6:54 am

Hello everyone. This here is a guide to explain to casual pokemon trainers how to ev train their pokemon. This is a basic lesson, and if you thought you were good without this, just wait until you have an ev'ed team.

1. What the f*** am I talking about?

EVs (effort value) are the result of ev training. They're stats that were added to your pokemon. Every pokemon in the game ends up with an EV spread, even if you didnt do it properly. Controlling your EVs, it is possible to make pokemon considerably harder, better, faster, stronger.

2. I can make my darlings into warmachines!?! How do I do it!?!

Although it may seem compicated at first, it really isn't. Here are the basics:

-When you defeat a pokemon in the game, the defeated pokemon hands out EPs (effort points)

-Every time you get 4 eps in a stat, your stat gets 1 EV (in other words, the stat goes up 1)

- There is a maximum of 255 EPs in a single stat

- There is a maximum of 510 evs total

- You can see what kinds of evs a pokemon gives on sites such as serebii.

-Items exist to multiply the EPs gained. : those are the macho brace and the power items (power armlet, band etc)

- There exists a virus your pokemon can catch that doubles the EPs gained.

Yeah, the virus is called Pokerus. I't's really rare though. I only got it once in my SoulSilver.

One way to do that is to simply find an area in game where there are Pokemon to train against that award the correct EV's. Another way to do it--which takes far less time--is to find a trainer that has a set of Pokemon that only give you a certain type of ev. For instance, in the fourth generation games, there was a trainer that had 6 Magikarp, which would give you speed. As far as I know, there was a trainer for each of these except for the defenses, I believe. Basically, though, that second method depends on which game you're playing.

As for what you can train them against to give you certain ev's, I'd recommend this page: http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-bw/

If you scroll down, you'll come to the part that lists every Poke by the type and amount of ev's each one gives. Just click on the type that you want.

^Platinum EVing "hotspots"

http://www.serebii.net/games/evs.shtml
^At the bottom of the page it should have a list of good places to EV.

Trainers are easier to train against IMO, but there's nothing you can do if you can't rematch trainers whenever you want... (ex: HGSS and BW)

Well no has mentioned the 3rd option which is using AR and the modifier code which allows you to repeatedly battle the same poke at whatever level you want.

Those are listed here...

Defense has one, but Special Defense does not.


Oh, and Darki, what's a Power "Armlet"? Razz
