I am 100% new to competitive battling and training and hardly know anything about EVs. However, I compiled a small guide for myself for EV training and Annoyer Umbreon ("Umbreon's terrible for competitive! Blah blah blah!") This is mainly just so I can try it out and learn, and is mainly for entertainment. Is anyone willing to give a look at the guide and critique it, or mind looking over my EV training guide?
Here is the EV training guide:
"Use Calcium (Sp. Attack EVs) and Carbos (Speed EVs) to help EV train Umbreon; do note, however, that only up to 100 EVs can be gained from this method. Use Carbos (Speed EVs) most often to help with the speed; use 55 Carbos and 45 Calcium for Umbreon to maximize its speed and Sp. Attack, perfect for an Annoyer. -Remember, though, that you can only gain a maximum of 252 EVs, thus battle 63 Pokemon per stat. -Go to Route 35 in HG and use Surf; the only Pokemon you will encounter are Psyduck and Golduck, both of which give Sp. Attack EVs. -Go to Route 30 or Ilex Forest and battle ONLY Pidgey and Weedle for the Speed EVs. -From this, be sure to gain 63 battles of Golduck and/or Psyduck, and 63 battles of Pidgey and/or Weedle for Speed EVs.
To gain EVs faster use the Power Lens (Sp. Attack) and Power Anklet (Speed EVs) (Gained in the Battle Frontier)
-Also remember that you must reach Level 100 for the full efects of EVs.
-Also remember 4 Pokemon (must KO each one) = 1 EV (without item enhancers like Power Lens or Power Anklet)"
I think the EV training plan is flawed, specifically where it states the "63 Pokemon per stat" (sounds confusing when you need for per 1 EV, so wouldn't it be more around 252 battles?).
Thanks for any and all help given, I am just trying to better my skills so I can do competitive battling in the future and this is simply a test run.
Today I managed to obtain a male Eevee with a Rash nature who is Mischievious. I haven't saved yet, so I could be sure that whomever knows EV training might have better input before I finalize this.
I apologize if this is the incorrect place in the forum to ask such questions. If this is incorrect, could i be directed to the proper place for this?
