    Like other people said, I only use EV training for competitive purposes. Implementing it as part of your run-through of the game takes the fun out of it, in my opinion. Besides, I had absolutely no trouble getting through the game without EV training.

    EV training in game could only be done easily after getting surf and fly usable. This cuts the time it takes to get to the needed pokemon down and gives access to Frillish(1 EP for special defense) and guranteed Stunfisk(2 Hp EPs). Other then those 2 I use woobat(1 speed EP) and rogenrola(1 defense EP(sturdy is annoying)) at the cave near the first gym, route 4(the desert(all pokemon -hippopatas provide 1 attack EP)) and Celestial tower for Litwick(1 special attack EP) to EV train my pokemon. My most recent one is a Level 100 Lugia 252 hp 252 def and 4 S.atk with calm mind, thunderbolt, ice beam, and recover for it's move set.

    No need to EV train to take on Gym Leaders, In most games they're relatively easy and with a small amount of strategy you will take them down with no problems.

    On my first three play throughs, no, I didn't. I was against EV training back then.

    But now, I've done it before. It's hard for me not to; it's part of our training regimen, and it actually helps with like, level grinding.

    I couldn't care less for EV training cause it seems to be too much of a hassle. All my level 100 Pokemon have never been EV trained and a lot of them didn't have Pokerus when I started to level them (only got pokerus in Pearl about 3 years ago when just randomly battling Pokemon).
    Thankfully, I am not really into competitive battling anyway, but I think my Pokemon would definitely be a problem if I did actually get into that, lol.

    Default I don't quite get EV Training...

    I've fully EV trained my Riolu, Skyle, in Sp. Atk, but his Sp. Atk stat is only 44. with 252 Sp. Atk EVs, he should have a boost of 63, so how is this possible?

    You won't see the complete benefits of EV training until Level 100 in Black and White, however the EVs are still present.

    so if you train a pokemon to level 100,fully EV trained, when you do the battle subway and everything basically gets chopped in half stat wise does the EV stat get chopped to level 50s worth aswel?

    Ever since Platinum I've felt the need to EV train, even if it's just for the in-game battles.

    *facepalm* This topic has been necrobumped...

    But anyway, I did EV-train throughout the story line. Though every time I accidentally defeat a Pokémon, whose EVs given aren't the ones I wanted, I would either have to just suck it up or restart the battles (I would usually save between every battle), especially since I didn't have any EV-reducing berries/items on me at the time. :/

    I'm not sure what you mean here, but the EVs you gained for that Pokémon aren't affected.

    I actually started EV training for the first time the other day because unlike all the other Pokemon games, After the main story was over it felt like there was nothing in game to do for MONTHS. So I took up Ev training. Right Now I'm MMing for a Shiny Shellder to add to my team. It will be the second Pokemon I've ever EV trained by myself. I'm so excited!

    ^They're easy enough to get the hang of unless you have trouble with numbers, look them up.

    I started EV training before I thought about IVs. I resurrected my original Silver team and EV trained them and some of them didn't even have the most optimal natures.

    I now EV train every shiny I want to use to the best it's nature can offer and if I'm chaining something I catch more than one and use a synchroniser so I can get a good mix of natures and IV spreads. Now when breeding I keep tab of IVs too. They don't have to be perfect if I just want a certain pokemon for my playthrough team but I like the natures to be good. When catching my Litwick for my team I caught many and only kept the Modest one.

    I started breeding Scyther for a competitive team but it's quite annoying trying to get the perfect IVs, natures and egg moves on it.

    The first time I EV trained during my first playthrough of a game was in White. I did it with my Axew after spending ages hatching eggs for a shiny, after it shone I EV trained it and did the same with my Rufflet. I also EV trained my Litwick after all that time looking for a Modest one and I'm pretty certain I did it with Tirtouga too. So the majority of my team are EV trained, something which I've never done before unless it was a pure shiny or hatched team.

    My shiny team. Do not ask for a battle, they're just for personal taste.

    I just asked this in another thread too. I think overall stats are something like EV x Level (well that would be the core of perhaps a more complex formula at the very least), so your EVs stay the same, the level is halved, and the overall effect of each attribute is then halved.... can anyone confirm this?

    I always loved EV training my Pokemon all the time in my games, even if I'm not a competitive battler. I like it because it helps me dominate against other trainers. :P

    I never EV Train for in-game purposes. I do EV Train for Competitive Purposes, though.



    I have officially claimed Mew (Pokemon), Poo (EarthBound) and EarthBound itself.
