    I really want to do a RMT after I learn this.
    The easiest way would be to use 7 hp ups, then put on a macho brace and fight 4 stunfisks (or 2 with pokerus) and you will be all done.

    Thanks but Skarmory was an example, but still thank you, would fighting 14 Stunfisks with 10 hp ups add up to 248 EVs?

    Hello. I have something I like to ask of you. If I got a baby pokemon that starts from the egg and its at lv1, then I equip him with exp. share, then use my high level pokemon to battle for him. I'll EV train my pokemon. You see, I just got a Torchic egg. I was thinking of equipping Torchic with my Exp. Share item, then using my high level pokemon to battle pokemon to evolve from Torchic into Blaziken. After he evolve into Blaziken, then I'll EV train him and then raise up his level. I came here to make sure that I train him right. Should I ev train Torchic before evolve into Blaziken? You see, I like to bring out the best in Blaziken. It have an adamant nature. Would that will be the great way to raise up a new pokemon? Let me know when you have the chance. Please and thank you.

    Simple math

    Each HP Up = 10 EVs. So 10 HP Ups = 10 x 10 = 100
    Each Stunfisk = 2 EVs + 4 for Power Weight = 6 EVs each. 14 Stunfisk = 14 x 6 = 84 (x 2 from Pokerus = 168)

    So that is 268 EVs...

    exp. share also shares the base evs, plus any benefits the pokemon has(pokerus). so ev train as a torchic, unlesas you happen to have 35 rare candies lying around.

    Ah thanks, now I can EV train with different spreads instead of the 252/252/4

    I have a question:

    If i put a poke in the daycare and bred it, but it wasn't level 100 (to be more precise it's level 82), would that mess up it's evs?

    Just to let you know that characteristics also make a differance to EVs.

    Also a question. Say I got a pkmn I wanted to EV train at Lv1 and had a lot of rare candy's (that I got through uh *cough* a um.. a friend ) Would I be able to use these rare candies on my Lv1 pokemon to get it to level 60ish and then still have 0EVs?

    Yes. You can also use the Pokemon Daycare to do so.

    Sounds like just a run of bad luck to me. Though, the more stats you're trying to get perfect through the process, the more eggs you can expect to go through until you reach the desired result. But typically you would've got what you wanted by 40 eggs since it's still only 2 IVs you're after.

    im playin pokemon platinum and i got azelf and a pokeball YES!!!!!!! but i what to EV train it's modest nature and it's Lv 50 can you guys help
    I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature. (Started by Tyranitar)

    Put this in your signature if you think Ruby and Sapphire deserve remakes

    Does anyone know if the pokemon you are EV training actually has to knock out the pokemon or does it just have to be in the battle. I'm trying to EV train my shiny dratini.

    i think they only need to receive exp since you can use exp share to EV train a pokemon. Send out an already Ev trained pokemon or one you are trying to give the same EVs to then give your dratini the exp share. To my understanding, they should both receive the same amount of EVs from the battle. But then, i may have read it wrong and they split the EVs but either way, they both get them.

    What is the best way to check a Pokemon's IVs? Right now, I am using the battle subway to show my pokemon at lv. 50, and then write them in serebiis IV calculator. Is there a faster way to check their IVs beside the battle subway?

    So Battle Subway is therefore an optimal way to do it? I'm also curious to know if it is a popular method among other players to use the battle subway when checking IVs.

    I personally only bother checking a Pokemon that's rated as outstanding by the judge and has three or more flawless IVs and in the stats that matter most.

    I've been using Rare Candies (I can get IV values that are accurate enough for my tastes at level 30), since it feels faster then having to go through all the dialogue involved in getting on and off one of the trains.

    I see xD
    But if you have used 29 rare candies to raise your Pokemon to level 30 and its IVs are bad, do you then reset the game and delete the Pokemon? Otherwise, you have to use a lot of rare candies
