    ^ Well, essentially, stat boosts. Doesn't mean much in regular pokemon, but makes huge differences in competitive play.

    Question : My friend was telling me that some pokemon don't get the full benefits of their EVs until level 100, but I was saying that it didn't matter since in flat battles (we were arguing about having to train a pokemon to level 100 before doing some battle subway and such) they adjust stats to a level 50 pokemon anyways.... So... Who is right and why? o.o

    Pokedex is almost complete...

    IVs can account for as much as 31 points in each of a Pokemon's stats at level 100, which is little less then half the amount you'd get from EVs, but the average Pokemon rarely ends up with even a single flawless IV, which where breeding comes in.

    It's not as big of a benefit as EVs provide, but still enough to make the difference between winning or losing a battle, especially in regards to speed.

    Yeah, but due to the stat adjustment that happens, it doesn't matter right?

    also chandelure is an amazing special sweeper with 145 base so just sweeping might go better on it, and it can switch in on wow-ers and get a boost and usually 1hko depending on who it is :P

    thx for the info. i do know for a fact that i put 6 HP ups into chandelure and 3 max speed ups(cabos) into it cuz i was still undecided. as for the other useless stats(atk/defense/etc) i have no idea how many EVs i got into. ive been training it since i first cout it in the tower at lvl 26 and its lvl 44 now. thats why i asked if there was a way to decrease EVs just incase i have EVs in places i dont want.

    but i ya i decided i want to max out its HP and max out its special atk. i was considering speed mainly because i wanted to try and OHKO ppl by atking first. but looking at its base speed i know that wont really be possible since its speed will still be way to low.

    also whats best way to get a pokemon to lvl 100? in other words a easy way out lol. farming rare candies?

    I find exp share + League round two is pretty decent.

    then when it gets to a higher level and can take most of the league on by itself, just do that.

    Stats are pretty good,
    Although it looks like your Sp.Atk has some EV's wasted on it
    Atk isn't as high as it could be, do you know how many EV's you put into that?
    And your speed is pretty good also.

    In my opinion (Not sure how much it's worth :P) It's got good stats, but they're not perfect.
    However, it's attack stat is pretty beastlike anyway. XD

    If you're looking to use him competitively then he'll be outclassed, but for the main game he's delicious. Teach him Outrage and destroy the Battle Subway, lol.

    for lvl 50 only half of 31 would be in the stat since its gradual i guess and i know evs are dished out differently in gen 5, but anyway you wouldnt need to train to lvl100 because it doesnt look at its stats, but its evs and ivs then calculates it for lvl50 so even if youd only lvled it to 20 and went battle subway then it would be the same as if you bothered to train to lvl 100

    what about the larvitars you got from breeding with ditto? use those once you get both genders, unless your ditto has a perfect iv you want to pass on, breed around ten hatch them then take them to the judge, if he says it cant be better then its 31, once you get one stat youd want to get around to getting the power items, if they arent used then breeding is more just luck, if you get lucky and get a larvitar with the 2 ivs you want but not the nature, then give him a power item corresponding to one of the stats, breed until you get a gender opposite of the one you gave the power item, then take the power item and give it to the new larvitar, and then for the other iv give the power item to the original larvitar, then just wait till your nature comes up

    Oh I know and I normally don't bother, but I lucked out on the SpD and Attack so I'm just going to go for it this once :P

    cools. thats what i thought. the only reason i went for speed was because of its timid nature (+ speed, - attack).

    the only reason it has 250 is because i was training against something that gave 2 ev's and glaceon has pokerus so i stopped so i didnt waste any. i just need to find me a blitzle or something similar.
