    If I wanted to EV train can my pokemon could I use vitamins on my pokemon until they have 100 EVs in every stat that I want (which is normally two I believe and then an amount less then ten for one other stat.) and then EV train the traditional way for the rest of the EVs?

    @Pokestar this really helped me understand it

    Pokemon.Marriland.com - How to EV Train your Pokemon

    just read that guide and it'll all make more sense.

    Ok, now that I'm back, I'm hoping to finish my sand team... the line-up so far, if I remember correctly is:

    Tyranitar
    Reuniclus
    Landorus
    Heatran
    Ferrothorn
    ??? (can't remember...)

    Also, I was wondering how this'd work for UU/OU, since Speed Boost Blaziken is banned to UBER:

    Blaziken
    Ability: Blaze
    Nature: Jolly
    EVs: 252 Atk & Spd, 6 HP
    IVs: preferably at least 31 Atk & Spd.

    Flame Charge
    Hi Jump Kick
    Flare Blitz
    Swords Dance/ Stone Edge/ Shadow Claw

    Strategy:
    Come in on something it threatens, like Evoilite Chansey or Blissey, use Flame Charge, but if Heatran is expected to switch in, use Hi Jump Kick.

    I'm not sure if it'll get the chance to use Swords Dance as much as it'd like, so Stone Edge can be used for coverage & to beat Flying types if Blaziken has enough speed or get them on the swicth. I thinking it may not need Swords Dance boosts because of it's high attack & the equally good BP of it's STAB attacks... I think this because of how well Staraptor can do without boosts.

    Shadow Claw could be used against Psychic Pokemon & is more accurate than Stone Edge, but has noticably lower power...

    Flare Blitz recoil can actually help, because when Blaziken loses enough HP, Blaze will activate & make the move even more fearsome, altough that may also end up being the end of it... at least it'll go with a bang.

    The question is:
    How often will it be able to use Flame Charge & how many boosts does it need?

    EDITED IN:
    I think Blaziken can use Agilty, but Flame Charge does minor damage, which stops Taunt from working & the small bit of damage will hopfully be enough to KO with the next attack.

    Blaziken with any ability, is banned from standard play.

    That's...
    stupid.

    OMG ITS BLAZE BLAZIKEN!1!1!

    Pssh, yeah, RIIIIGHT...

    But I suppose the ban is easier than to check weither or not it has Blaze or Speed Boost every time it's used...

    So, does anyone remember the last pokemon of my Sand team?

    @ soulless shadow:

    Ok, went back there & then remembered what I've decided on...

    Now all I need to do is to decide their movesets & then I'll post a RMT.

    It won't have pictures, but I'll still make it as visually appealing as possible.

    Do you guys realize how much difficult it is to script a ban of just one ability + 1 pokemon? and once they ban it, they would also be forced to make more such complex bans? They did a good thing. stop it calling stupid.

    i'm not sure this has been addressed yet, but here you go.

    ~smeargle is to slow to pull this off without a focus sash. even if you're in RU, you should use focus sash
    ~smeargle's stats aren't that high, not a very high attack. i understand that that is the reason for nasty plot, but outrage is a physical attack. no matter how many times you use nasty plot, it won't boost outrage. saw with sacred fire. both are physical attacks.
    ~smeargle is much more commonly used for support. theres a baton pass set and a hazard leech set for OU. i have to go more, i'll add to this later.

    Question EV Training in Generation IV and Generation V

    As stated here, I'm trying to learn how to EV train Pokémon in Generation V, specifically my Black Version. I've noticed, however, that the Sticky thread that should address my questions and the links that are of particular interest to me are no longer active. I've tried getting involved with Smogon's community, but it's a bit difficult for me to break into conversation since I don't know anything of the competitive battling world.

    Would someone be willing to walk me through EV training a Pokémon? I'd also like to know the differences between EV training a Pokémon in Generation IV since I still play HeartGold and SoulSilver a lot (call me a nostalgia fag.)

    I'm post-game at this point, just doing side quests when I feel my team is strong enough to do so. They're all either level 75 or 76.

    I'd really appreciate the help.

    a few things.

    ~Pokemon.Marriland.com - How to EV Train your Pokemon
    i personally feel that this guide explains it so that it is easier to understand.

    ~it's a smart idea to level up your pokemon to level 100. my ideal place to train is outside undella bay, i think route 12 or 13. it' the first patch of grass if you leave the northern exit. it's kind of shaped like the USA. just cycle until you see shaking grass, then battle audino. gives good EXP. also, on this route, there's a chance to catch wild crobat, which i got pretty good trades for on GTS.

    Alright, thank you for the link. I'll check it out!

    Also, why's it better to level up to 100 first?
