    @soulless shadow

    After having received the approval of my fellow Battle Center staff, I am changing the link in the OP to the Marriland EV guide. The upkeep of the OP itself will most likely continue to remain in the hands of staff for the time being.

    If I were going to EV train and Eevee and evolve into a Vaporeon would it matter if it were an Eevee or a Vaporeon while EV training due to drastic differences in base stats?

    that is an interesting question. i believe that the amount of EVs would remain the same, but the stats would be for a vaporeon and not an eevee. say they looked like... 4 hp / 252 att / 252 spa. (ik, unrealistic) your vaporeon would still have those values, and the stats would be adjusted so.


    funny how eevee and EV are more or less pronounced the same, but with a different emphasis.

    How do you EV? And is that a simple question?

    you mean to ask "how to ev train"? yeah its a simple question.

    Actually, when your pokemon koes another one, it gains an "ev".

    Battlers make their mons fight against specific mons a specific no. of times. That is called ev training. So basically you get evs after every battle. But its termed ev training only if you do it deliberately.

    To add to what Conkel said, every Pokemon can only gain a maximum of 510 EVs (Energy Values). The maximum amount of EVs a certain stat (HP, Attack, etc) can have is 255, but since 4 EVs only equate to one stat point, you should never go above 252 EVs in any one stat; that is 63 stat points. Every time a Pokemon is KO'd, your Pokemon gains a set number of EVs. For example Magikarp gives one speed EV. By defeating various combinations of Pokemon you can make your Pokemon the best it can be in certain stats.

    And yes, that is a simple question.

    guess who just won that? this guy...

    @Mumzy i would also like to add that some pokemon give more then 1 EV in a stat. some give two or three. and some give EVs in more then one stat, but those aren't recommended.

    I had to look up Glaciate and I am disappoint in Game Freak. It's Icy Wind with 10 additional BP >_>

    To be honest, while that is unique, I think you shouldn't make so much changes to standard sets with Kyurem as it really is a one-trick pony, and that's all it seems to work as. For item, I'd definitely go with either a Choice Scarf, Choice Specs or a Life Orb. I guess you could try out a Lum if you wanted, but it doesn't fear status (except Par) all that much and the boost in speed or power it would get is much more preferable.

    Change Modest to Timid. It's at that funny speed where you need to run a Speed boosting nature to survive.

    I'm not too sure about the EVs. It won't be taking all too many attacks, and I wanna know why you put so much in HP.

    As for moves, they're pretty good. If you want, Dragon Pulse can go over Glaciate as you probably won't get much of an opportunity to slow down sweepers and keep them in to be KO'd.

    lol, that is a smogon set. there are 4. the point is to switch in on something that would fear a scarf kyurem or whatever, then nail the switch in with a glaciate. the rest is self explanatory. except draco meteor. i want dragon pulse there.

    Yeah, just because it's Smogon doesn't mean it's a good set. The only things that will switch in on that, don't care that their Speed has been lowered. Special walls aren't very fast and don't care for speed nine out of ten times: take a look at Blissey, Chansey, Cress, bulky waters and Lax even. The set itself just seems much worse than the standard sets.

    you are just looking at this in one way. what if terrakion, scarftar, scarftran switch into kyurem? and most often they will.
