    i think it does, if i remember correctly, if the pokemon gains exp, it gains EVs, unless its been EV'd.

    If an EV'd pokemon is in front of a Non EVd Pokemon, and the Non EV'd Pokemon is holding an exp share and it kills a goldeen, the Non EV'd Pokemon gets 1 speed EV (I think)

    Both pokemon get the FULL amount of evs.
    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.

    I have a question about IVs. I know the higher the better but what amount can be considered good enough?

    Speed you generally want a 31 since it can be a matter of outspeeding or not, which is a big deal. Unless its a defensive pokemon, where speed is irrelevent. the others I would say 25+ for most ivs which are very important (for attackers, their attack stat, for defensive pokemon its HP/defense/special defense), and for attackers I would say defensive above 20 are good enough if they are really frail (weavile, infernape), or 22+ if its a bulky attacker (metagross, scizor, Jirachi)

    Thank you for the quick answer. I also have another question I am curious about. When evolving a Scyther into a Scizor when should it be done? I am wondering if Scyther's much better speed stat has anything to do with when you want to evolve.

    After Level 9(when Scyther and Scizor learn Pursuit). Otherwise it doesn't matter when because most moves are either Tutor or TMs.

    As for the speed, it doesn't matter much. Scyther is much faster but more frail, and really poor coverage. Scizors speed stat should only be high if it's the Swords Dance set or the Choice Scarf set.

    A couple things:

    1.)Can Empoleon be a good user of Hone Claws?

    Empoleon-Leftovers (Torrent/Competitiveness) Not sure which to use.
    Brave (Atk+, Spd-)
    4 HP/160 Atk/200 SpAtk/80 Def/64 SpDef
    Aqua Jet
    Hone Claws
    Blizzard
    Earthquake/Brick Break/Rock Tomb

    Aqua Jet for priority & STAB, also great w/ Hone Claws. Blizzard gets 93% accuracy after 1 use of Hone Claws & takes care of Dragon, Ground, & Grass threats. Earthquake is a given, but I also thought Brick Break would be useful for those floating Steels that Earthquake hates to miss. Rock Tomb might seem strange, but I like the Speed drop it gives to opponents. This however, leaves me susceptible to those same Steels. Anything I can do to improve Empoleon's chances of using this move?

    2.)What should go in this Sceptile's final moveslot?

    Sceptile-Life Orb (Overgrow)
    Hasty (Spd+,Def-)
    132 Atk/200 SpAtk/176 Spd
    Giga Drain
    Earthquake
    Hidden Power (Fire)
    X-Scissor/Dragon Pulse

    Should I go w/ Dragon Pulse or X-Scissor on this Sceptile? X-Scissor helps against Pokemon like Zoroark, Reuniclus, & Espeon, but Dragon Pulse is great for coverage & helpful against Dragons (who really screw Sceptile over otherwise).

    Empoleon doesn't seem like a good user of Hone Claws due to its low speed and lack of a physical movepool to take advantage of the accuracy boost. If you want a physical Empoleon, use the standard Gen. IV Swords Dance set.

    Your Sceptile has an inefficient EV spread because you are 100 EVs shy of the 508 mark. I'd suggest giving it an EV spread of 80 Atk / 252 SpA / 176 Spe and a moveset of Leaf Storm / Earthquake /Hidden Power (Fire) / Dragon Pulse. Leaf Storm should be your primary attack because it can deal a massive amount of damage to most things that don't resist it and it allows you to potentially abuse Overgrow later in the match. Dragon Pulse hits Latias, Latios, Salamence, and Garchomp super-effectively and can revenge weakened Gengar. The final two moves provide coverage against opposing grass and steel types.

    You also may want to go with a Naive nature over Hasty. I haven't run any damage calculations, but Naive may very well leave you better protected from physical priority moves.

    Edit: Fixed the EVs
