    Default Advanced EV, IV, and Nature with locations and levels for every stat.

    Advanced EV and IV and Nature Guide: what they are, their hotspots, and more!

    Hello this is a guide to explain EVs to everyone but it has a little twist. In many EV guides they say: for speed go to Golbats in Victory Road or the Magicarp Fisherman. Well how about if your Pokemon is too good or too weak for those places? This guide explains a place for every stat and every level group and more.

    Table of Contents:

    1. What are EVs?

    2. EVs in competitive battling.

    3. Where the best places are for every level.

    4. Extra tips.

    5. Natures

    6. IVs





    What are EVs?

    EVs, or effort values are hidden properties in R/S/E/D/P which determine how much a specific stat grows. Each Pokemon gives one or more type(s) of EVs. Let’s just say you want your new lv. 36 Blaziken to be a physical powerhouse, you would train it against Pokemon who give attack EVs: Machop, Machoke, Machamp, Carvhana… Once you get 4 EVs in the same stat, you will get an additional +1 in that stat when you get to lv.100. So, if a Blaziken defeats 36 Machops (all 1 att. EV) when he levels up he will get an extra +9.

    EVs in Competitve Battling:

    In competitive battling, EV training is mandatory for all good battlers. Here is a simple way to put it. You have a Porygon-Z that is not EV trained and your opponent has one that is. You use Psychic, knocking him into the red-orange. He uses Psychic and it OHKOs you. Why? It’s the same move, same Pokemon. This is where EVs come in. His Porygon-Z might have had 405 Sp. Attack, the max because of EV training. You might have had 380 MAX. In this example you see how much of an effect it makes if you do or don’t EV train. 380<405.


    Best places for each stat and level:

    lv. 60 and up: none

    Extra Tips:

    Use Macho Brace to get double the EV points in any fight. So if you beat a Machop you will get 2 att. EVs. Pokerus helps a lot but it is very rare and has the same the effect as Macho Brace without the speed lowering. It can be permanatly kept if a Pokemon infected is kept in the PC.

    There are also Power Items, cut the Pokemon’s speed but only when it is holding it but adds 4 additional EVs in the stat it corresponds to, here is the list:

    You can get them at the battle tower exchange corner for 16 BP each.
    Power Anklet= 4 Extra Speed EVs (In every battle)
    Power Belt= 4 Extra Defense EVs (In every battle)
    Power Band= 4 Extra Sp. Defense EVs (In every battle)
    Power Bracer= 4 Extra Attack EVs (In every battle)
    Power Weight= 4 Extra HP EVs (In every battle)
    Power Lens= 4 Extra Sp. Attack EV’s (In every battle)

    Natures:

    Natures give a 10% Boost in one stat while decreases another one by 10%. About 4 natures raise every stat, but choose depending on the pokemon. Let’s just take Heracross, give him an adamant nature because it raises its dire attack stat, decreasing its not needed sp. attack stat. Some natures are neutral, meaning they raise no stat and decrease no stat.

    Here is a list of all the natures and what stat they raise and decrease: http://www.psypokes.com/lab/natures.php

    IVs:

    IVs, or individual values, like EVs, influence a lot on where a Pokemon’s strength goes. But unlike EVs, IVs cannot be changed. Every Pokemon has IVs, and they are most of the time, very different from one another. IVs are another way to class how strong a Pokemon is, they range from 0 to 31, 0 being the smallest. If you want to breed for the perfect Ninjask, you would breed for a Jolly one with 31 IVs in speed. But if they are random, how can I possibly find out what they are? Here is a link to an IV calculator:
    http://www.serebii.net/games/iv-calcdp.shtml

    Another thing that influences IVs are D/P specials: characteristics. Characteristics, like natures, influence how fast a stat grows. Like natures there are many different characteristic for each stat. If you get a characteristic that makes sp. attack better, the chances for you to get a higher sp. attack IV. Here is a link to chart for the characteristics:
    http://mountmoon.net/showthread.php?tid=4469
    Notice how they say numbers on the side of every characteristic? Those are the IV number you could get for that stat if you get that characteristic. One of these for each stat has the possibility of getting a 31, other lower. Some people would aim to get the characteristic in which you would get 31 in the Pokemon’s stat. So for that Ninjask you would breed to get a Jolly Alert to sounds one so you can get 31 IVs in speed.


    I hope you liked my EV guide and I hope it will be useful to all people.

    This is wrong.

    The Power items give extra 4 EVs to the respective stat after every battle. Like while battling a Bidoof holding Power Weight you get 5 EVs.
    Way superior than Macho Brace.


    You should also point out things like Pokévirus (More info) or that Pokémon doesn't get EVs immediately after a level up.

Now for those who might ask, all those 9 EVs probably wont come all at the same time or immediately the next level, but don’t worry, you won’t lose any.


    You should say 4 EVs = 1+ Stat in level 100.

    And all you said about Pokévirus was....

    Yes, it gets 4 EVs plus the EVs Pokémon normally gives (Even if it's not attack)

    Yes, Jirachi Bow, that is correct. In Trainer battles it still counts, but not in the battle tower.

    Sorry Volteon. I'll add that when you get to lv.100

    and Psychic is an example, I'll change it with Dark Pulse if you want.

    doesn't matter

    about every base 80 attack sux even dark pulse (on porygon-z that is)
    STAB Tri Attack w/ adaptibility = 160 base power
    Super effective darkpulse = 160 Base power aswell

    On the first post you should only state the best places to ev train (no higher level exept for Special Defence, witch can't be lowerd)

    also add:
    STABB, IVS and natures,

    then It's a great guide for nooooooooobs
