    If you wait until friday, you can catch a Lapras in the union cave. Lapras can have quite a varying move pool through TM's, and of course that all important confuse ray.

    I'm kinda mixed. I usually have 1 or 2 with potential for future evolution (I'm breeding for shiny Meditite/Medicham, though I think it will never get a evo) and most of the time I go for the looks, though stats are also important. Sometimes I only had those with 3 evolutions but those times are over.

    What?

    Also i to was the guy who just trained my starter and only starter and recently I've been trying to get a team instead of just one pokemon.
    What are we without the sky?

    Classic case of misusing the "> <" signs. And yeah, like I said - all you need is one overly buff starter, it doesn't even need the best moves if it's buff enough. Back in Ruby my Blaziken decimated the Elite Four with just Double Kick and Flamethrower - yes, even the dragon trainer - sure it took some time, but again I was way overpowered.

    Made a new remix of unova gym leader music. Made it sound pretty much like it would be against Elesa or Roxie. Cause i love both their gym themes.

    Hello, I've been trying to raise a Sceptile for competitive play. I breed one with the right move set, nature, characteristic, and highest iv(as checked by the guy in the battle tower). I gave it 10 Calcium and 10 Carbos but nothing seemed to change, its stats remained the same. So I went on to ev train it with Pokerus and Power Anklet, defeating 15 zubats, 2 slowpokes, and 30 psyducks. However, upon plugging my stats into an iv calculator, it came up with very poor ivs which shouldn't be the case. The man in the battle tower said it was above average and it's best stat(special attack) couldn't be better. Since it's characteristic is "mischievous" that means the iv for spec attack should be 31. After subtracting 100 evs from spec attack and speed since the vitamins seemingly did nothing, it came up with what seems to be more correct values, with my spec attack iv at 31. So my question is, what exactly happened? Using the ev vitamins should have increased my stats, but instead they did nothing. Trying to give it more calcium and carbos yields the message "It will have not effect."

    Here are the stats:
    Grovyle
    Hasty nature
    "mischievous"
    Above average potential
    Special attack as best stat
    "Can't be better"
    Hidden Power Ice

    Level 18
    hp: 50
    atk: 30
    def: 23
    Sp. atk: 48
    Sp. def: 30
    Spd: 56

    Assuming I ev trained correctly, they should look like this: +4 hp, + 252 sp. atk, + 252 spd.

    So what's wrong?

    Just checking you know that 4 EV's = 1 stat point.

    And that is at lvl 100. At lvl 18 it's way less.

    Yes, I know the basics of ev training, though this is my first time doing it. I did everything according to http://www.serebii.net/games/evs.shtml

    Level it to 100 and look at the EV spread. Also I wouldn't bother too much about EV training. They are looking at it in a ultra competitive light.

    I thought ev training was a must if you want to do any battling online. Sort of like you need pvp gear to do well in pvp.

    Ev training is useful at critical levels but unless you plan to play in competitions it is not needed. I personally EV train my Pokemon but I can say it doesn't make much difference when faced with RNG (Paralysis, confusion, critical hits etc.), Pokemon that counter yours and Pokemon with a stat boosting move. Granted, EV training can make a lot of difference but it is not essential.

    Well, I want to be somewhat competitive, hence I came here and asked about it. If I didn't care as much, I would've just gone with my current sceptile without going through 60 eggs to get the perfect combo and training from level 1.
