    It appears that EVs do indeed cap at 252 rather than 255. Awesome.

    Any confirmation if this 'super training' can indeed raise a Pokemon with a poor IV to match a Pokemon with a 31 IV and 252 effort points? So basically can a Pokemon break the 252 effort point barrier if they don't have a 31 IV? Thanks.

    Won't you get unnecessary Defense EVs the first time you use Super Training? I saw in a video where it sort of had a tutorial making you participate in a Defense regimen before unlocking the other five.

    Just catch a defensive Pokemon and use it for the tutorial.

    Is this confirmed? I'm lazy so this would be perfect!

    Is it definitely confirmed that you can Super Train before the first battle of the game? I'd like to max my Fennekin's EVs before playing. And I know this was asked but I haven't seen a definitive answer yet so will we be able to view IV's?

    Having tried Super Training, wow this is stupid. I'll stick to my grinding, thanks.

    Hitting the punching bags on the bottom screen's been cool for me, though. I like improving some of my stats a little in-game while I'm just riding around, talking to NPCs and whatnot.

    This is why I caught a random pokemon and made it do the practice tutorials.

    Then my Froakie did the ones I actual wanted to use.

    hi, just a noob question. does the dark inner areas in the super training status screen represent the pokemon's IV? because i've been trying to SR torchic for a jolly one, and i noticed that its ST status (the inner dark area) does not seem to change. even though its characteristic changes every time i reset.

    I don't believe it is. But it's possible. I think it's more of a guide on what stat you should be Super Training. So new users get an idea of what their Pokemon is best at.


    Also. Anyone who has trained to 252. Does it tell you when you hit the 252 mark, or do you keep going aimlessly? Don't wanna waste hours maxing out a stat that I already maxed out.

    If the characteristic changes then the IVs must change as well. That dark inner area must be the base stats.

    It tells you. Also can't use a bag on it if it's maxed. And the yellow pointer on the mainscreen will touch the edge.

    You'll be getting +0 every time you train at a maxed out stat. That's how you know.

    For anyone wondering how long it takes to fully EV train your starter right from the start it took me around 2 hours to fully EV train my Chespin's atk/def.

    At first that may seem like a long time but compared to how long it would have taken if I grinded on wild Pokemon instead at level 5 I would have been EV training for at least another 3-4 hours.

    Plus if you unlock tier 3 minigames with your starter it will make EV training for the rest of your team go much faster.

    Anyone have any idea on how to check ivs for the starter?
    I am capable of manipulating matter on a subatomic level by speaking. A mere flick of my finger is sufficient to alter the gravitational pull of the planet. I shelve physics texts under "fiction" in my personal library. I consider the Laws of Thermodynamics loose guidelines, at best. In short, I am grasping the reins of the universe's carriage, and every morning I wake up, look the heavens and shout "Giddy up, boy!" You may never grasp the complexities of what I do, but at least have the common courtesy to feign something other than slack-jawed oblivion in my presence. I, sir, am a wizard, and I break more natural laws before breakfast than of which you are even aware.

    Are Super Training and Core training separate things? Also let's say I want to raise Froakie is speed and attack, should I hold off super training, and just abuse the ev boosting punching bags after I unlocked them?

    I've been doing ST for two hours, only found one (which I wasted on accident) I'm currently looking for another (such a pain) So I can get rid of 4 defense EV's on my Fennekin >_> Is there a way to just remove those small amount of EV's?

    Also. No the punching bag and ST games both help boost EVs.

    Just fully Super trained my Gible, 252 Atk, 252 Spe, 6 HP. So its 510 EV's. Also after i maxed out my Gible i hit the black training bag and got a Reset Bag so maybe you get one everytime you full train a pokemon.

    I got an EV-reducing berry from the berry farm.
    A tree had a mutation and there was one Qalot berry.
