Actually the point of ev training is so that you can make stronger ANY pokémon. It's exactly what Karen means!
Strong Pokémon. Weak Pokémon. That is only the selfish perception of people. Truly skilled trainers should try to win with their favorites.

Otherwise you're forced to level up a lot more, and that just becomes a chore easily when you're doing the main game story...

I mean, Druddigon is terribly slow, Cinccino has horrible defenses, and Swanna is mostly kept around as death fodder and HM slave. But I liked them, and I used them. :up:
Magnezone really is the only competitive Pokémon there... OTOH both Lucario and Arcanine are strong competitive Pokémon with high BSTs. Nothing wrong in liking them (I like them too), but hey, don't judge! :wink:

Haha, I wasn't trying to go after EV trainers or anything xD;;

To be honest, I just don't understand a whole lot of that insanity so whenever I'd try to talk Pokemanz on the interwebs I was called a n00b for my team picks, so I just kind of threw that in there :P

Mmmh, well the idea behind EV training is quite simple and logical, and has been around since red and blue (just with different math).
Basically, the gist of it is that if you defeat a Pokémon that has a certain good stat, you should receive a small boost in that stat. So for example, defeating Zebstrika, which is incredibly fast, will gain you 2 speed EVs. This is affected by different forme of the same pokémon, so defeating a Darmanitan gains you 2 attack EVs, whereas Zen Mode Darmanitan gives 2 special attack EVs. There are also Pokémon with mixed EV yields. For example, defeating Shuckle gives you 1 defense EV and 1 special defense EV.
Along with this, there are held items which boost the EVs the Pokémon gains, along with the Pokérus, which doubles the gained EV amount. The various vitamins also increase the EV by 10 untill the Pokémon has 100 EVs in the stat, and the feathers introduced in BW add 1 EV each with no cap. Vitamins and feathers don't get the Pokérus boost, tho.
Finally, if you messed up something, using certain berries, you can easily delete certain EVs of a Pokémon.

Hope this clears things up! Don't be scared of the mechanics, they are part of the game for a reason. :)

Using this sentence to explain the Past Participle in class:

"What is a yellow pokemon owned by Satoshi (Ash)?"

Pokemanz all up in this bitch, yo.

Hahaha, so I might have already known this, but now that I have four Trainer Stars, Nurse Joy greets me by name and asks if I want the usual. When she first found out, she was all "Please can I heal your Pokemon (you sexy Pokemon master)?"

She may not have actually said the last part of that, but it was defs implied.

In my copy of Diamond I ran into/caught a shiny gold Geodude...then a week later I ran into a shiny Graveler :? Like...seriously? Don't get me wrong it's still awesome but I kinda wish it would've been something else lol. Oh well, now I have two shiny Golems :P
Oh and my first copy of Silver was rather loose with the shiny encounters. I caught a shiny Rattata, Golbat, Meowth, Tauros, and two others that I can't seem to remember atm 8-) On my second copy (first broke) I caught the same shiny Golbat xD

Going through the whole franchise again, but with a catch. Gonna do a mono-type run for each game. LeafGreen means mono-grass. There are only 6 grass types in Kanto, and one of them is Paras. >:|

Should be challenging though. :3

Speaking of shinies, I've only ever had two. Poochyena and Lilligant. Both were WTF moments.

Hey now, Parasect isn't bad. It gets one of the few perfect accuracy Sleep moves by level 27 plus useful resistances to Ground, Water, Fighting, and Electric. It'd be even better if Dry Skin were around in Gen III too, but whatchagunnado, eh?

I finally caught a female Drought Vulpix the other night, so I'm starting to put together a Sun team. I also started cleaning up my PC boxes, separating out the Pokemon I didn't particularly care about keeping (lots of extra babies, stuff I caught just for the 'dex, etc.). Final tally was nine and a half boxes of unwanted Pokemon. That's just shy of 300 mons. D:
