    The characteristic is only there to tell the stat with the highest IV, rather indirectly. And you can't really tell exactly what it is by looking at the characteristic alone. For example, if your characteristic is "Likes to thrash about.", then your best IV is in Attack, but for all you know, it could be 31, or it could be as low as 1.

    It depends on the IVs themselves, and those are only somewhat manipulable. And once you get them on a Poke, they don't change.

    The best way to know your Pokemon's IV is really to get your Pokemon to a high level with a well-managed amount of EVs (if any at all), then look at an online IV calculator. (Google one up.)

    If you have about 6 rare candies you can use metalkids, so you can find out its ivs by the time its level 7ish and know if you should train it without giving it large amounts of evs before hand (wasting your time)
    If we are having a battle and I disconnect, it is 100% unintentional; my power goes off often and each time my modem resets.

    Gone until Aug, 10 or something for a trip w/out net access. C u after that. If I suddenly dissapear after that you can bet I got bad grades on my IGCSE's, since results are coming out the week afterwards.

    What I do is I take a lv 1 Pokemon, kill a high leveled Pokemon (you know, by sending the lv 1 out first then switching to something else that can kill the high leveled Poke), and just punch in the stats into Metalkid's calculator as it gains like 10 levels. You'll need an EV wipe berry for it afterwards, but it works for me. Alternately, you could go get an IV battle or use Rare Candies.

    ev wipe berries:

    to be honest any golduck or special attack ev giving pokemon will work but yes, that works. Or you could just give it an exp share, which also gives both pokemon all the evs gained from the battle.

    Well, if you want to EV train a Pokemon in a different spread, you'll need those berries to delete the EVs that the Pokemon gained. One Pokemon can have only a total of 510 EV points at a time. And I think it was 255 EV points per stat...

    you can have a max of 255 evs in each stat but the last 3 don't do anything so you might as well add the remaining 6 elsewhere.

    Not that the last two really do much...I've often wondered about that.
    So, just to clear you up lonewolf, the main reason you'd need to use EV berries is if you screw up EV training. That way, if you got to, say, 251 EVs, then messed up on the last one, you can take that last one off instead of having to redo the whole thing.

    Is it possible to EV train a level 100 Pokemon? I remember their being some kind of a box glitch in the earlier games but I'm not sure if it still works.

    If anyone cares, I'm asking this because congos (zerowing) traded me a Calm, level 100, 31/31/31/30/30/31 Heatran with 0 EVs during the tournament. I suppose it was intended to be a joke, but I still would like to use this Heatran if at all possible.
