    Default EV Guide Upgraded version! Place for EVs and more!

    Since the last one was not updated I have taken the liberty to write a new one, no offense to the person that wrote the last one.

    Before I get to the guide (Mods nobody is reading the Q&A so I have to size the font up)

    READ THE Q&A PART OF THE GUIDE BEFORE YOU ASK A QUESTION

    Thank you.

    Table of Contents:

    • What are EV’s?
    • What do you do with EV’s?
    • Where are the best places to EV train?
    • Items to Help EV train.
    • Pokerus.
    • What are IV’s?
    • Questions and Answers.
    • Conclusion.
    First of, hello I’m Kyogre35 and this is my guide.

    1. What are EV’s?
    EV’s are hidden properties that promote stat growth. They were first introduced in R/S, and later continued in the next games including D/P. Every Pokemon has a specific amount of EV’s that they give when you defeat it. The max EV’s for one stat on one Pokemon is 255, and the max you can use on all of the stats of one Pokemon is 510. Also 4 EV’s equal +1 in that stat. So EV’s are basically one growth in a stat. So an example is that Bidoof gives out 1 Hp EV when you defeat it, and if you defeat 4 Bidoof’s, that equals +1 in Hp. One way to know if your Pokemon has max EV's(510) is going to a woman in Sunnyshore City, I belive using Rock Climb, and if she gives you Pokemon in the first slot of your party an Effort Ribbon then that Pokemon has 510 EV's spit up among stats.

    Think of it like this….

    4 EV’s = +1 in that stat.

    Now onto what to do with these EV’s.

    2. What do you do with EV’s?
    EV’s are used to up a specific stat for a Pokemon, so they can be stronger in that stat. Most competitive battlers use EV training to max out a stat of one Pokemon, so theirs is stronger. Though this is not something you have to do, it’s highly recommended, but if you choose not to that is okay. So an example is you want a Physical Sweeper Machamp, so you look in Chapter 3 of this guide and see one of the best places to EV train in Attack is on Route 213 with Swimmer Sheltin. So you go to her and repeatedly battle her to get 252 EV’s in attack to Machamp, and so it got a boost of +63 in Attack. It is recommended that you only give 252 so if you give two stats 252 EV’s then you can give another stat +1 since there is 6 remaining EV’s. That’s a lot, and that’s the benefits of EV training.

    3. Questions and Answers
    Seeing a lot of questions repeating, I decided to put some of the most common one’s here and hopefully these questions will quiet down. I had to move this because it wasn't seen so READ THIS BEFORE YOU ASK A QUESTION!!!!!!!!!

    Question 1: I EV trained and got 252 EV’s in Attack but the next level up it only went up +3. WHY?
    Answer: This is a common question; the reason is EV’s are spread throughout the levels so you won’t see and immediate gain in one level up.
    Question 2: Is there a way that I can find the EV’s a Pokemon has? Because I think I miscounted.
    Answer: No there is not, we wish there was, but there isn’t. The best thing to do is use EV reducing berries to start all over again.
    Question 3: Does it matter what level I start EV training on?
    Answer: No, but there is a benefit of starting early. If you start early and max out the EV’s for that Pokemon, then you can level it up anyway you wish since you don’t have to worry about EV’s.

    NOTE: If you want a question add here then PM me and I’ll put it here to hopefully decrease the amount of those questions. But they have to be common; probably some people will have to ask the question twice.



    4. Where are the best places to EV train?
    This section is about where to EV train, so if you don’t want to EV train right now and want to know more about Pokerus, IV’s, and Natures then skip this section. Also if you have any other suggestions for this section of the guide, then post them, and I’ll update this as quickly as I can.

    I will use this format to explain the best places to EV train for every stat.
    Where (What Route):
    Who (What’s the trainer’s name, or if it’s a wild Pokemon):
    Pokemon and levels: (The levels aren’t exact so prepare for an over under situation)
    Total EV’s:
    Notes (If any):

    P.S.: I will only give wild Pokemon if there appearance rate is high.

    So here we go…….

    Total EV’s: 6 Spec Att EV’s and 1 Spec Def EV.

    Who:Scientist Shaun
    Pokemon and Levels: Two Alakazam around level 60

    Spec Def #######################
    ###############################################

    Where: Route 210 in tall grass in the bottom left.
    Who: Ninja Boy Davido
    Pokemon and Levels: Dustox around level 25
    Total EV’s: 3 Spec Def EV’s
    Notes: Good spot to train seeing Spec Def’s spot’s are hard to come by. Same thing with Ninja Boy Fabian, You have to talk to him first so he gets out of the tall grass so you can use the Poke’ Radar. Also get lots of Max Repels so you don’t run into Pokemon.

    Where: Any big area of water.
    Who: Wild Pokemon
    Pokemon and Levels: Tentacool and Tentacruel, Ranging from level 20 to level 55
    Total EV’s: Tentacool gives 1 Spec Def EV, Tentacruel gives 2 Spec Def EV’s.
    Notes: So this is half-way decent. The best route is Route 218. Also a good spot is the water in front of the Pokemon League. But with this luck is a big factor seeing Pelipper appear here often to. Just run away and you should be fine.

    Where: Route 230
    Who: Swimmer Sophia
    Pokemon and Levels: 1 Mantyke and 1 Mantine around level 50.
    Total EV’s: 3 Spec Def’s EV’s.
    Notes: Good spot, problem is that you’re on water and your Surf speed is SLOW. If you have good patience then go for it.

    Where: Route 230, at the top.
    Who: Swimmer Mallory
    Pokemon and Levels: Seel and Dewgong around level 50
    Total EV’s: 3 Spec Def EV’s
    Notes: Good spot, hard to reset the radar though. Also bring plenty or Max Repels.

    Where: Route 224
    Who: Dragon Tamer Hayden
    Pokemon and Levels: 2 Altaria at Lv 60 via Vs Seeker.
    Total EV's: 4 Spec Def EV's

    ###############################################
    Speed #######################
    ###############################################


    Where: Route 205
    Who: Fisherman Andrew
    Pokemon and Levels: 6 Magikarp around level 10
    Total EV’s: 6 Speed EV’s
    Notes: Terrific spot. Low levels and you can get more when holding an item.


    Where: Route 229 fishing with Old Rod
    Who: Wild Pokemon
    Pokemon and Levels: Magikarp with levels around 7
    Total EV’s: Magikarp gives 1 Speed EV
    Notes: Very good to. Magikarp is the only Pokemon that appears when fishing.


    Where: Route 225
    Who: Wild Pokemon
    Pokemon and Levels: Fearow, Raticate around level 50. And Rattata and Spearow around level 20
    Total EV’s: Fearow and Raticate give 2 Speed EV’s. And Rattata and Spearow give 1.
    Notes: Good spot, just watch out for the other wild Pokemon that appear here and run away from them.


    Where: Caves
    Who: Wild Pokemon
    Pokemon and Levels: Zubat and Golbat around level 10 to level 60
    Total EV’s: Zubat gives 1 Speed EV, Golbat gives 2.
    Notes: Now this is in here because almost every cave or Tower has Zubat of Golbat. The best places are, the Underground lake where you catch Feebas (SURF), and Snowpoint Temple Floor 1 (Sneasel gives 1 Speed EV to ).

    Where:Victory Road, inside the area where you go after you beat the Pokemon League, and battle with the girl with Arcanine. You also need Surf.
    Who: Wild Pokemon
    Pokemon and Levels: Golbat around levels 35 to 50
    EV's: Golbat give 2 Speed EV's
    Notes: Good spot to train. Nothing wrong seeing when you Surf here there the only Pokemon that appear.

    That’s the end of the Where to train section so onto Items that help EV train.

    5. Items That Help EV Train.
    There are a few items that help EV training shorter and more fun. Here are a few……
    Macho Brace: The Macho Brace gives you 2x the EV’s. An example is you face an Alakazam and you beat it while holding the Macho Brace and so you get 2x EV’s to get…….3 Spec Att EV’s(times) 2 = 6…….so you get 6 Spec Att EV’s since your Pokemon was holding the Macho Brace. But while holding Macho Brace, it cuts your Speed in half, so there is a price to pay.
    Then there are Power Items….
    These Power Items give you an extra 4 EV’s for every Pokemon defeated. Here’s what each Power item does…

    Power Anklet = 4 extra EV’s in Speed for every Pokémon defeated.
    Power Band = 4 extra EV’s in Special Defense for every Pokémon defeated.
    Power Belt = 4 extra EV’s in Defense for every Pokémon defeated.
    Power Bracer = 4 extra EV’s in Attack for every Pokémon defeated.
    Power Lens = 4 extra EV’s in Special Attack for every Pokémon defeated.
    Power Weight = 4 extra EV’s in HP for every Pokémon defeated.

    3. Berries: There are a few berries that lower EV’s. They are berry # 21-26. They lower EV’s by 10 if the total amount of EV’s for that stat is below 100. Or they lower the EV’s to 100 if the total amount of EV’s for that stat is above 100. A reason to lower the EV’s is that you think you miscounted your EV’s when training and need to start over. Here are those berries…..

    1. Pomeg Berry – Lowers HP EV’s by 10 or to 100
    2. Kelpsy Berry – Lowers Attack EV’s by 10 or to 100
    3. Qualot Berry – Lowers Defense EV’s by 10 or to 100
    4. Hondew Berry – Lowers Special Attack EV’s by 10 or to 100
    5. Grepa Berry – Lowers Special Defense EV’s by 10 or to 100
    6. Tamato Berry – Lowers Speed EV’s by 10 or to 100

    4. Energy Boosting Drinks: You can also raise EV’s with items. These items are Iron, Zinc, Calcium, Protein, Carbos, and HP up. All of these items give 10 EV’s to their particular stat which I will show you in a bit. But there’s a limit when using the vitamins, once a Pokémon's stat completes 100 EVs, you can't give it more. So if you want to EV train you can use these to speed it up before doing so. You can buy these drinks in Veilstone’s apartment store for 9800 bucks so start saving the money. Now onto what Drink gives what….

    1. HP Up – 10 HP EV’s
    2. Protein – 10 Attack EV’s
    3. Iron – 10 Defense EV’s
    4. Calcium – 10 Special Attack EV’s
    5. Zinc – 10 Special Defense EV’s
    6. Carbos – 10 Speed EV’s

    6. Pokerus.
    Pokerus was founded in R/S and is in D/P. Pokerus is a rare disease that gives your Pokemon the ability to gain DOUBLE EV’s. Pokerus is basically a Macho Brace without the Speed deduction. Usually people get this disease by trading on Wi-Fi, also you can fight wild Pokemon and your first Pokemon can get infected. I’ve heard the rarity of getting Pokerus in the wild is something like 1/5000, which is better than seeing a shiny in the wild without Chaining. But if you get a Pokemon that is affected with Pokerus do a few battles with Wild Pokemon and trainers to get it spread to other Pokemon in your party, and then put the Pokemon affected into the PC to have Pokerus stay on that Pokemon. If your going “O no my Pokemon that was affected got rid of Pokerus and I was just going to EV train it”, then listen to this; a Pokemon that was infected will stay infected, but it can NOT pass the disease on if it has a Smiley face by it. In other words once a Pokemon gets it, it will always have the 2x EV boost. This boost applies for Power Items boost as well, so battling a Bidoof with Power Weight and Pokerus, you'll get 10 EVs ([1+4]*2). When the Pokerus Pokemon is in party, the disease will wore off in the first midnight the Pokemon spends in party. That’s pretty much all you need to now about Pokerus and onto the next chapter, which is always related to EVs.

    7. What are IV’s?
    IV’s are hidden values that made even the most similar Pokemon different. Every stat has an IV attached to it. The values of IV’s go from 0 to 31, 31 being the best. They add on to the max stat of a Pokemon. I think Chaos Emerald said it best…..
    The IV adds that many stat points to the stat at level 100. So let's say the max stat for a Pokemon's Atk is 300. If it has an IV of 0, the most that Pokemon can ever get, even with full EV training, is 269. If it has an IV of 29, the most it can get is 298, and so on.
    That is what IV’s do, so you want the highest IV’s in the stats that are the most useful for that Pokemon, as an example, you want a Physical Sweeper in Heracross, so you don’t need a 31 IV in Special Attack, you need it in Attack. You can breed for good IV’s to. Usually 3 IV’s from BOTH the parents are passed down to the baby. Right when you get the egg IV’s are already determined. The way IV’s get passed down is complicated so read carefully.
    1. 6 random IV’s are chosen for the baby
    2. One random stat’s IV from one of the two parents IV’s is chosen and overrides the random IV chosen in step 1.
    3. Then another random IV in one stat, that is not the HP IV stat, is chosen from one of the two parents and overrides the random stat in step 1.
    4. Then the final stat’s IV (baby), from one of the two Parents is chosen, that is not the Defense or HP IV, and overrides the random stat in step 1.
    That’s it! Now here’s an Example using all the steps above…:

    Let’s say you want a baby Chimchar; so you breed two Infernape’s that have these IV (going in this order HP/ATT/DEF/SPEC ATT/SPEC DEF/SPD)
    Father: 23/4/16/27/11/15
    Mother: 2/13/30/12/3/19

    1. The Baby’s random IV’s: 17/31/20/5/6/9
    2. Then the game chooses the Mother’s Attack stat to be the baby’s. Baby’s IV’s now: 17/13/20/5/6/9.
    3. Then the game chooses another IV from the parent that isn’t the HP IV. Let’s say the father’s Speed IV. Baby’s IV’s now: 17/13/20/5/6/19
    4. Then finally the game chooses another IV that isn’t the HP IV or DEF IV. How about the mother’s Special Attack. Baby’s IV’s now: 17/13/20/12/6/19.
    5. And these are the final IV’s for the baby: 17/13/20/12/6/19.
    And that’s how the game determines IV’s! So it pays to have Parents with great IV’s.

    Also since you can’t find IV’s straight in the game, here are some IV calculator’s…….

    Metalkids:
    http://www.metalkid.info/Pokemon/OnlineProgram/Calculators/IV.aspx#instructions

    Serebii’s:
    http://www.serebii.net/games/iv-calcdp.shtml

    ….these are used to figure the IV’s of your Pokemon.

    P.S. Metalkids is more accurate. But if you’re looking for a rough estimate use Serebii’s since it takes less time to fill out.

    8. Conclusion
    Thank You for reading my guide! And I hoped it helped.. And thank you Serebii for some of the info I got from you. And THANK YOU to the people who made suggestions to this guide. Please feel free to rate, suggest, and ask questions about the guide and EV training. See ya!

    First thank you so much for the commplement!

    Second do you mean the girl that has the Misdreavus? If you do she is under Special Attack.

    Edit: I'll be gone for about 8-10 hours. But still post your questions and somebody will answer.

    Hi, new guy here. I have a question regarding working out a Pokemon’s IV states using the IV calculator. Basically, so you cannot work out a Pokemon’s IV state with the calculator if you have not kept track of your Pokemon’s EV over the course of its training as you wouldn’t know what EP to put in the calculator. Is that correct?

    If that’s the case, then I would actually have to tally and keep notes on all the EV my Pokemon gains or is there another way of working it out?

    Yes you would of had to keep track or it's unvalid.

    First, There is? Well I'll check out Route 214 and see.

    Second, people if you want me to add some then just give me a little more detail and I'll add it as quick as I can.

    Yes it is. It's Psychic Abigail, she has a misdreavus that you have to sub for when training.

    Again if you have any suggestions then please feel free to post them.

    It doesn't matter, you just need to get 252 EV's or below in one stat. It does not matter what level you do it at. Unless it's level 100.

    I hope you don't mind me asking about how to calculate evs..I'm ev training for my first time in special attack with a mild porygon, and its holding the power lens. So for example say I defeat 10 golducks...so golducks are 2 ev points each, so that means porygon recieved 20 evs so far right? How do I factor in the power lens?

    Edit: Oh, so it doesn't matter what level you start ev training in? I have some level 50's pokemon with the perfect natures, but someone told me that starting at lvl 50 was too high for ev training..

    Edit II: This is probably a noob question XD, but once you get 252 evs in one stat, can you do another 252 evs in a different stat on the same pokemon?

    Since the golducks give 2 ev's each, you would add 4 ev's because of Power lenses effect. So every golduck would be 6 Ev's (2 + 4=6) so if you beat 10 golducks, you would gain 60 ev's. Since the max ev's are 255 for each stat and 510 overall, you could max out two stats.

    how does that work? i dont think i fully understand ev training cos i can get loads of evs at a certain lv group then 3 lvs later i stops working.

    and where at the resor area our only golducks? inside that contest building (which they wont let me into yet XD)

    It does not matter how many points you gain per level, It will ALL be added at level 100.


    AND if you actually READ the guide questions and answers, it has the answer in this question:


    Question 1: I EV trained and got 252 EV’s in Attack but the next level up it only went up +3. WHY?
    Answer: This is a common question; the reason is EV’s are spread throughout the levels so you won’t see and immediate gain in one level up.


    Doesn't anyone read everything anymore?

    Thanks. I calculated the rest of my ev's and it turns out that I way overtrained in sp attack, I could have stoped a while ago XD. At least now I'll know how to do it for the next one.

    ok, there is a trainer with two alakasams...apparently he's a secret...you go to the marshy area to the west of pastoria city, and just as you enter the rainy area there is a bike trial that you have to cut to get to. cut and ride along and there is a scientist there. you might need to fight him couple of times to get the kasam's but yeah, there he is! hope this helps!
