    Oh, well, that's good to know. Pokemon from eggs generally have better IVs than pokemon obtained in the wild, right?

    Also, I assume you get Will-O-Wisp on a Ralts offspring from Shuppet?

    Edit: Can two ditto breed with each others?

    Oh, and just to be clear, the nature and IVs of the pokemon in the egg are set when you receive the egg from the old man, right?

    a pokemon holding an EXP. Share will gain as many evs as the pokemon that is actually battling, although if the battling pokemon has a Macho Brace the pokemon with the EXP. Share will not gain doubled evs. so your Torchic will still gain evs.

    +2 HP
    +3Att
    +2Def
    +2Sp.Att
    +2Sp.Def
    +3speed
    It Level 16 and for the last 3 levels it getting that much Stat increase.

    i'm working on SRing for a good groudon, and i think i have a winner, but would like some feedback.

    adamant nature, with these IVs
    HP- 26-27
    AT- 22
    DF- 23-24
    SA- 19
    SD- 26-27
    SP- 20-21

    with those IVs, and no EVs, at level 100 these stats are attainable:
    336 HP / 359 AT / 308 DEF / 201 SA / 211 SD / 205 SPD

    not sure of the EVs, but assuming maxing attack, i can jump to 429. hit points can only reach 399, but that's still a good number, and i can drop it down a few notches to maintain max lefties recovery and add more to defense or something.

    should i keep this bad boy or not?

    Everytime you gain EXP, you gain EVs. That's the general rule.

    I know how annoying getting legends with a good Nature AND IVs are, so that's a very nice Groudon. Go ahead and keep it.

    Yes, it's normal. You typically almost never get large stat gains from one level to the next except in extreme circumstances. What does matter is the actual stat, not the increases. Over many levels, you would notice a difference if compared with an equal pokemon that wasn't EV trained.
    A signature so short, it's
    Slim.

    Congrats on the new Groudon. A few months ago when I was working on my Shiftry bases for attack ev training, I decided to SR for a decent Groudon. On my first catch, I caught an adamant one w/ flawless SAtk IV. The other IVs included: IIRC 26 Atk, 19 Def, 30 SPDef, 24 HP(?), and 3 SPD.
    This groudon I concluded, was for to get the Drought on Kyogre and a general sweeper. It has hidden power poison which isn't useful against gengar. I want to raise a swords dance groudon but I can't figure out an EV Distribution and I don't have a salac berry. I was told a salac berry is a required for SD Groudon. Any suggestions?
    I have battled the Frontier among its 7 facilities... You might say I have some confidence in my ability.

    I also had successfully soft-reset for an adamant groudon quite some time again but held off on training it. Most all its stats are in the 20-30 range except for special attack which I don't really care about. Another pokemon I got from soft-resets was a mild kyogre with flawless hp/sp.def and near-flawless sp.atk/speed and above average defense. I made a cloned and raised one with an EV distribution of 252 sp.atk/speed, 6 HP though I could clone and make one with 252 HP/sp.atk and make it learn substitute possibly. Any other suggestions geared towards diamond/pearl for groudon & kyogre shall be gratefully appreciated.

    Salac Berry also requires that you get at least 264 Speed, which your Groudon can't reach. Just Max Attack and HP.

    Groudon
    EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 Def

    No, Huntail has worse Sp. Attack and can't even learn Agility.

    Gorebyss
    EVs: 24 HP / 232 Spd / 252 SAtk
    Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

    for UU play, which is where you would presumably be using Gorebyss. if you're using it in standard, go for 187 speed (188 speed evs).

    I'm going to evaluate 4 Sp.def. It may save me desperately from a mewtwo's ice beam though I doubt it myself. This one is going to be transferred to D/P since I have no further use for it in my emerald. The moveset will be determined by then also.

    EDIT: The togepi breeding continues for the flawless HP/SAtk/SPDef modest togepi w/ scene grace. I've hatched so many eggs where at times I was so close. Here's what the storyteller in the mauville pokemon center informed me since Wed.:

    When starting my togepi breeding 2 days ago: 1415 eggs hatched, the birth of a new legend!

    Yesterday night: 1465 eggs hatched, the birth of a new legend!

    Currently w/ 5 eggs in my party:

    Hatched EGGS

    1551 time(s)?!

    That is indeed magnificent!
    It's the birth of a new legend!
    ----------------------------------------------------------

    Golly gee!


    This is what intimate at the daycare at the moment:

    Togetic, Flawless HP/SAtk/SPDef

    Ditto, Modest, Flawless SAtk

    I just can't hatch a female togepi w/ a double flawless or even a modest one after 136 hatches. I recently hatched a wonderfully outstanding modest Togepi w/ flawless HP/SAtk. But still no help due to the pitiful female offsprings lately.

    Have to stay patient. Expert Evan do you know how many eggs you hatched. I would be in shock if it were over 5,000.

    Curselax should look like this

    Snorlax@Leftovers
    Careful
    Rest
    Curse
    Return
    Earthquake/Shadow Ball

    Shadow Ball is for Ghosts that are immune to Shadow Ball, EQ is for most pokemon that resist normal. What move it should have depends on your team really. I'm not sure about the EVs, but my CurseLax on NB has eitherr 501 or 496 HP, 330 SDef, and around 210 Def and 280 Atk.
