    Well I guess I'll start of by asking if there is any truth to the ev-reducing feature of super training? also was it possible to increase Iv? are Ivs maximized in wi-fi battles? Is the ev-reducing berries obtainable ingame and if so how much of a pain is it to farm them?

    That would be the best thing they could ever do for competitive battlers... I hope they did something to have max IVs in Wifi battles easier...
    When PokemonBank launches there will be lots of cheated flaweless Pokemon in XY and that is just unfair if you don't have flawless Pokemon...

    I don't think it's possible to alter the IVs of a pokemon. They're sorta like the DNA of a particular pokemon that set it apart from its counterparts of the same species.

    you cannot alter the IVs of pokemon because every specie has its own cellular parts so you cannot change the IV of a pokemon

    apparently they are not maximized it was confirmed on smogon earlier it seems... well it seemed unlikely anyways...

    @Vaizel
    the only thing Ivs determine anyways are how good at battling your pokemon is, a "genetic manipulation" feature would save a lot of time

    @Hasty Jynx
    Yeah the majority of pokemon used competitivly are probably cheated anyways, such a feature would reduce hacking for sure

    So the rumors of being able to raise your Pokemon stats to max IV's are squashed?

    in wi-fi battles yes (why didn't they make this an option I mean they have level adjustments so you can have a fair fight regardless of the level of your pokemon so why not iv adjustments)

    when it comes to if its possible in super training no one has confirmed it yet (at least that I know of right now)

    My heart fluttered to the idea of wifi battles having maxed IVs. Then I considered how wasted that would make some of the time spent breeding out one that was perfect or "good enough". However with bank doing hack checks I think that will even things out and make raising a solid iv/ev that much more satisfying.

    Does anyone know of a comparative guide for differences in Ev and Iv's from 5th gen to 6th? Or at least how exp share effects effort point distribution?

    Can you decrease unwanted ev's ? I heard you get to super train early but i want every ev to count on my pokemon.

    You get Super Train before the very first battle in the game.

    Yes. It was confirmed on smogon yesterday. Now the pokemon we use in the campaign will actually be useable post-E4

    Sorry I missed this on my first read-through of this thread.

    So does that mean I can min-max all 252 points in say, Spatk and SpDef and the spare couple in HP all before I've even been in a single battle?

    Yes, I just finished super training EV Braixen and got reset bag which resets all EV.

    Really happy about that as she got some random EVs on the way.

    I wonder if we only receive the reset bag when we fill the ev meter in super training, or also via regular battles.



    By the way @ super training.
    I noticed that different pokemon have different types of balls that they shoot.
    For example, my froakie shoots single balls which do fully charged about 160 damage.
    My Pikachu shoots machinegun-style balls and each only deals 10 damage, while charged do 30. Couldn't finish Tier 2 Speed & Special Attack with it, too many moving/quickly disappearing targets.
    Tier 2 requires 1500 points, btw.

    Haven't done super training so are these bags one time use or can you use them as much as you want on any Pokemon?

    one time use. you then have to get another one

    I've very uncertain about how i want IV's to turn out, one part of me wants it to be easy and the other one takes pride in having quite a lot of legitamete almost perfect iv pokemon ( I usually settled with not having perfect on the one attack type I didn't use..). Hopefully it has been made easier at least to get perfect IVs, cause as a lot of ppl have been talking about the fact that a lot of competative pokemon are hacked and it would be fun if they made it possible to be competative without cheating.

    Will have to super train later to check that. Feeling like we get it each time we finish EVs but I might be wrong.

    My Vivilion uses machinegun-style as well. They have different power-up attacks too.

    Might be a better idea to save Super Training for later on in the game when you have a better idea of what your Pokemon's base stats are. Wouldn't wanna Atk EV train a Pokemon with a strong SpAtk and low Atk.

    Agreed. I did it with Braixen as Smogon posted her stats by now. Was curious if you can reset them, now I can play without worrying.

    We already have a good idea of what virtually every new Pokemon's stats are like thanks to Smogon.

    I wonder why they don't just remove IVs in general. It just makes training, breeding and battling that much more difficult (and not in a fun way). I don't see why they couldn't have implemented a mini-game to affect the typing of HP or even the IVs. (As another user said up top a genetic manipulation machine (one you carry on your person) would have been viable and should have been implemented.)

    This is why some people use hacked Pokemon in the first place.
