I'm assuming you didn't fill in the part where it said EVs in the IV calc? Since if you didn't you won't get the correct IVs.

well, your pokemon gets EVs from battling, whether you know what they are or not. and if you don't factor them in, you can't know your pokemon's IVs.

are you goin to rebreed or not on this?
If you are.... timid(+Spd,-Atk) or Modest(+SpAtk,-Atk) would be better.

Without Endure then Flail is kinda useless. Also Confuse ray is Haxor.
Lanturn IS the best BoltBeamer/surfer around IMO.

Starmie has Lanturn beat IMO.

Also, Lanturn does not need Max Spd and SpAtk as it’s not built for pure sweeping (especially not with mediocre SpAtk and below-average Speed).

well, duh! starmie beats lanturns STATS hands down. but the lanturns i've caught(20) ALL have volt absorb, but starmie only has illuminate. i still love starmie and use her in my fronteir battles w/lum berry.

No, Starmie also has Natural Cure (rendering Lum Berry useless).

Yep, just as Aragornbird said Lum Berry is useless with Starmie if it has Natural Cure. Leftovers is standard if you want to go with Starmie.

Its not really useless if you arent using it on another pogey. Saves a switch out.

well i do gots a timid starmie w/natural cure. i'll replace my current starmie for it instead. lanturn also just got me through the first battle pyramid round! i'll use it in that round just in case i lose. lanturn also got me to anabel, even though i lost... oh well. quick claw/belly drumed snorlax pwned my lanturn and my meta. hera was able to kill it, but a critical fire blast from entei made him faint.
