    does macho brace double speed or leave it normal? and i think this i right but i want to make sure. If you are battling and u switch out and win do they both get the same ev, split evs or only the one who beat it gets evs ? and i f u lose and switch out to another pokemon does the one who fainted get evs 2?

    reverend_tweek - The EVs do carry over to the Shedinja, just like everything else. From the FAQ:



    There's your problem.
    so can the shedinga still get more evs in that stat? and how much can one stat have again? Sorry for not being smart im so sorry

    Macho Brace actually HALVES Speed, not doubles it, but only while it's attached (in battle). After it's gone Speed goes back to normal.

    As explained in the FAQ, if it gains EXP from the battle, it gains FULL EVs from the defending Pokemon. If it faints it does not gain EVs, because even though it participated in the battle, it did not gain EXP.

    Yes, the Shedinja above can still gain more EVs. You can't use Vitamins after that stat has 100 EVs in it, but it can still gain the rest from battling. You can have 255 EVs in one stat.

    You don't need to apologize for asking questions, but most of yours were answered right in the FAQ. Instead of having to wait an hour for an answer you can find it out right away by just reading the FAQ.

    Like if u battle a zubat do u lose evs or do u get double the evs like if it was another stat (i think zubat gives you speed ev) with macho brace.

    Macho Brace does not effect Speed EVs--it doubles ALL EVs while it's attatched.

    It just halves your Pokemon's actual Speed STAT while it's attatched. So if your Pokemon's Speed is 50 it would be 25 in battle with Macho Brace.

    You will only be awarded the EVs for fighting a single Hariyama, no matter how many levels it causes the Pokemon you are training to rise. Also, your Spheal with Exp. Share will get the regular amount of EVs from the Hariyama, not the double amount, even though your Salamence is holding Macho Brace. (Only the Pokemon holding Macho Brace gets double EVs.)

    When would be the best time to start EV training? I started it straight after I started a new game but it is getting quite tedious having to record all the EVs. My first priority is to get through the main game. Any advice?

    Edit: can u use reducing berries an unlimited amount of time or can u only use a maximum of 10 like protein etc.

    I've never EV-trained during the actual game--I find it's tedious, and it's much harder to control what EVs your Pokemon are getting, plus it's not just really needed. I EV-train afterwards, for the Battle Tower, battles with other people, etc.

    You can use an unlimited amount of EV-reducing Berries, until the EVs are gone.

    Yes. EVs ADD to your stats, but a Bagon isn't going to have the same stats in, say, HP at LV 20 that it does at LV 5, even if you don't EV-train in HP. This has to do with Base Stats, and the simple fact that higher level Pokemon have higher stats than lower level Pokemon.

    Right I think it covered this in the first post but I need to double check. I have my level 7 Lileep, just hatched. So I train it against weak Lotads with the macho brace on. Now just say I beat a Lotad, thats 2EV (MBrace) i beat another thats 2 more so +1. Say I beat another 2. That would be +2 to the stat but when i increased to level 8 all stats (barring HP) went +1 up.

    Now the first post says that it's not wrong, it's still there and I'm assuming it will add on another time. So is this to keep all my stats kinda even at a low level, when I get to level 20 maybe they'll be more diverse then at level 50 which is when i'll stop training it, they will be how I want?

    Thanks, just clearing up so sorry if this is an annoying post ^_^.

    OK, I have a dumb question that I think I know the answer to, but I just want to confirm. If I breed my Pokemon in Emerald and trade them into Fire Red (where I have more money to buy vitamins) and apply the vitamins in Fire Red, then trade it back to Emerald to complete the EV training, will I lose the EVs from the vitamins during the trade?

    Or, an easy way to ask the question is does trading change or negate unapplied EVs?

    PkmnBreederLuke - If I understand your question correctly, then you're right. Stat gain from EVs is added up gradually to prevent lower-level Pokemon from having huge stats. As your Pokemon gains more and more levels you will begin to see more of a difference between the stats you have EV-trained and the ones you haven't.

    SandwichDad - Nope, trading doesn't affect EVs at all. The ONLY way to reduce EVs is by using the EV-reducing Berries in Emerald. They don't change or "reset" when you trade, evolve, anything.

    Ok I have a Question:

    Lets Say I Purify And Fresh Shroomish From XD, Then Transfer It To Emerald, Give It EXP Share And Battle With My Mew Until The EXP Share Gets Enough To level Shroomish Upto LV 30 And Evolve Into Breloom, Did Breloom Get Any EV Points?

    If So How Do I get Rid Of Them?

    My Breloom Has 31 In Attack And Defence With And Adamant Nature, Also Knowing False Swipe, So I'd Like To Keep Her

    Thanks Jessie.
    XDOO1 yeah they do get ev points as if they were in a regular battle.

    Are These It:

    Pomeg (HP), Kelpsy (Attack), Qualot (Defense), Hondew (Sp. Attack), Grepa (Sp. Defense), and Tamato (Speed) Berries?

    And Is It True, When You use Them On Lv 100 Pokemon You can Do The Box Stat Trick?

    This works for Pokemon that are not Level 100. If you Effort Train a Pokemon, but it doesn't Level Up, you can place it in the PC to force the stats to be recalculated. But, if you try to Effort Train a Pokemon that is already Level 100, it does not gain any Effort Points from battling so there is nothing to recalculate and the Pokemon's stats will still be the same after you pull it out of the box.

    ...I'm sorry, I'm not getting it. What do you need help with, exactly?

    If you're fighting only Pokemon that give Attack EVs, and Absol hasn't fought ANY other Pokemon before, then you're doing everything right.
