''[Insert name here]... looks like it can try a little harder.''

I just want to beat something up so badly right now... EV-training and me aren't really compatible with each other.

Here I was, creating my future team in Black for a New Game in White (y'know, for the hype of B2W2), and with Snivy being my first candidate I immediately gave it 10 Proteins as well as 10 Carbos. Then, I went straight ahead to the training, starting off by battling some Patrat and Lillipup, with my Snivy being infected by PokéRus, as well as carrying a Power Bracer (I think?), so naturally I had it face 15 Lillipup/Patrat. Then I did the same thing for the Speed stat, and later I also added four EV's for HP.

I felt like I had counted correctly, aiming my complete attention towards the game, and being very cautious, so confident (and stupid) as I was I saved the game. Then, I went to the lady in Opelucid City, just to confirm that my training had gone correctly, even though I already was 99% sure that it was just perfect. But then, it happens....

''Your Snivy... looks like it can try a little harder.

WHAT?!?

Excuse me, but can you repeat that? *Presses the A-button once more (y'know, just in case my eyes were playing me a trick)*

''Your Snivy... looks like it can try a little harder.

..... Kill me.

''Alright, it's not that bad,'' I first thought. ''I probably just missed a battle or two at either Speed or Attack.''
So, I went back to the routes, facing one more Lillipup, and then one more Basculin. Then I returned back to the lady, only to hear the same darn phrase. And then I saved again, since I already have saved earlier and messed it all up, so it really didn't matter, and I decided to try and add some Zinc, just to see how many EV's it lacked, or if it even could take a Zinc considering it comes with 10 EV's.

Snivy could take 6 Zincs...

I went completely furious, and turned off the game. Apparently, I must've made some huge misses, since it was quite a lot of EV's that were missing, but I was too angry to face it, so I just threw the DS away, and I'm not planning on picking it up anytime soon.

EV-training sucks.

    yea that happened to me with my game of Pokemon Platinum. i tried and tried again and again to beat the elite four and when i got them out of the way, i had to defeat the champion. she whipped my ass so hard it sent me to the moon and landed in the kanto region. not really. and then i got my DS taken away plus the ds cards that i owned. so then i could never try ever again. so keep trying for all of us who does not have the chance to do what you will be able to do in the future! go west young Trainer! whip their asses for all of us! just like the way they did to me! But harder!
