I'm going to start building up a team soon but first I have a noob question
252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
~ Belly Drum
~ Fire Punch
~ Substitute / Endure
What does the 4 defense mean? How does that work out? or if it was 36 Atk / 252 SpA / 220 Spe what would the 36 mean? How do they work out? I'm not understanding that part
One small thing, don't use this thread to request for EV spreads. There is the Competitive Rate My Team and the In Game Team Rate forums for that.
Post here about problems, questions about EVs and suggestions for first page please ;D
as for above poster, everything has an explanation.
if you invested 255 EVs in Special attack and Speed, you'd get the exatcly same Special attack and Speed as 252 EVs in each stat, this is the first reason that there is a leftover 4 EVs there. This single point on Defense stat is simply for the reason that "which would you rather, a Charizard with 160 Def or a Charizard with 161 Def?" This single point can save you many things and it's obviously better than just putting 255 EVs in two stats you'll use.
the other EV spread is very porbably that the Pokémon has reached the minium speed necessary for it to outspeed what it has to. if the 36 EVs were placed in Speed, they'd be meaningless, so pumping it on attack to power it up a little.

alright, thanks a lot ^ ^
alright, im in need of enlightenment. Im completely aware how the EV system works. 4 EVs = 1 respective stat point and all that. My question is, ive been training my machamp on iron island with all the gravelers, steelixs, etc. To my understanding gravelers and steelixs give you 2 EVs towards defense. When I entered the cave my defense was 89. Ive battling more than 2 gravelers, which would be theoretically more than 4EVs which would raise my defense stat. My defense remains at 89. What am i missing. Does your pokemon actually have to level up in order for the EVs to be added to your stats? because my defense is not going up. I apologize in advance if i read over this, i just read and took in alot
I think this is kind of a silly question and I probably already know the answer. But when you get a traded pokemon is it normal for it to say XXXX gained a boosted amount of exp

If I am using the EXP. share method to train a Pokemon, by fighting with an already fully EV trained Pokmeon, will the Pokemon that has the EXP. share get EV's?

There would be EV's gained if the pokemon actually had room for EV's to be gained. For example, if it was 100% not EVed, then it would still gain the EV's, but they wouldn't matter anyway, since it would be at level 100.

fight 10, remove the power item and finish off getting the ev points

It gradually happens at any level. You'll just see the full effects at level 100, since there's no reduction.

Hey, i was on Smogon and looking at the teams for certain pokes. I was wondering why they only had like say 100 EV's for something and 252 in another. why is it that they put only 4 in one and 252 in another? why not just 255 in all?
sorry if this is in the wrong place, if it is can a mod move it to the right place.
i am ev training my heracross in speed. he has pokerus and the right item to add 4 ev to speed and i gave him 10 of the right vitamin.
i only want to give him 160 ev in speed so with the 10 vitamin i just need 60ev so i defeat 6 magicarps i then go up a level and get +5 in speed.
is that all i should have got or should i have got more?
i also gave him 96 ev in hp when fighting shelloswith the right item to add 4 to hp and i got +8. should i have got that amount?
heracross is level 20 btw
thats fine, not all the EV's are applied straight away, they are spread out over all the levels upto lv100

just to check if they went up any more i leveled my heracross upto level 100 using rare candies (i didnt save it) but every level it went up it only added +2-3 in speed so did it actually work?
ok i have a chancy lvl 26 *nver batteled* how do you suggest i get the 714 hp monster it evolves into with max defence* and the other 4 evs into sp defence?
