    Iodise's Ev Training Guide
    EVs are a staple to any future competitive pixelmon player, they are the backbone of a team and are in line with importance with natures. EVs, also know as Effort Values, are values that improve the stats of a Pokemon based on strengths of a Pokemon they have defeated.

    Pokemon can gain six different types of EVs, HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defence and Speed. Once you become more familiar with EVs, you may start to recognise these as Hp, Atk, SpA, SpD, Def and Spe for short. Pokemon can gain a maximum of 510 EVs, and allow of a max of 255 EVs in each stat, however, after gaining 252 EVs in a stat, anything over will not longer contribute to boosted stats thus making them worthless. These 510 EVs can be spread over multiple stats and not just two, this can be especially common on bulky Pokemon or setup Pokemon who may need the extra bulk to be able to sweep a team.

    Gaining EVs at levels do not matter, if you gain the EVs at level 10 and level it up to level 100, you will still see the same effect of EV Training if you was to EV train the Pokemon at level 100.

    The most important part of EV training is items, this will help accelerate how fast it will take you to EV train your Pokemon, these I will be going over later in the thread.


    Berries
    Berries are used to decrease a Pokemons EV stats, this is especially useful when being new to EV training as you will likely have already defeated wild Pokemon which will add unnecessary EVs to Pokemon, you can check what Evs you Pokemon via the /Ev [Slot] command, which will bring up a list of each EV you have in each stat and how much percentage you have left until you have no more EVs left to gain. Berries will decrease EVs by 10 and increase Pokemons happiness, making them an expensive but fast way of increasing happiness on a Pokemon. To remove certain EVs, you will need certain berries, these will be displayed here.

    Remember, all of those only decrease the EVs by 10!

    Power Items
    Power Items are key to EV training Pokemon, it greatly reduces the time spent trying to EV train and is extremely convenient. This becomes even more easy with the fact EvolveCraft has provided us with a EV training centre, you can access this through /warp EV. Power Items increase the gain of EVs by +4 based on what type of power item you are holding, this means if you defeat the correct type of Pokemon, you can increase your yield of EVs from 3 to 7.

    Although it is not recommended, you can also kill a different type of Pokemon that does not give the same EVs that the power item does, this will in turn give you 4 EVs of the power item you are holding, and 3 of the Pokemon you killed.

    If you are missing Power Items, you can purchase all 6 of them from /warp Pokemart.

    Defeating 36 Pokemon of the correct type with the Power Item on will get you exactly 252 EVs in that stat!

    Pokemon
    As mentioned before, different Pokemon give different EV yields based on their strengths, all Pokemon at /warp EV give of 3 EVs on each type, and are clearly labeled. These Pokemon will give 7 EVs with the correct item. All Pokemon and its given EVs are here :

    HP (Hp)

    Wigglytuff

    Attack (Atk)
    Victreebel
    [​IMG]

    Defence (Def)
    Poliwrath
    [​IMG]

    Special Attack (SpA)
    Beautifly
    [​IMG]

    Special Defence (SpD)

    Slowking
    [​IMG]

    Speed (Spe)
    Jumpluff
    [​IMG]


    All of these Pokemon naturally give +3 EVs in their stat without held items!

    Vitamins
    Vitamins are essentially for lazy people, yet I would not recommend them as it makes it harder to EV train in the long run as your stats will not add up perfectly and it will be harder to EV train normally. Vitamins will increase certain EVs by +10, but once you reach 100 EVs in a stat or over, you will no longer be able to boost that stat with Vitamins any longer, why they might actually make EV Training take longer then just doing it normally. Vitamins will also increase happiness.

    Each stat has its own vitamin, they can be seen here :


    HP Up

    Boosts HP (Hp) EVs by +10
    [​IMG]
    Protein
    Boosts Attack (Atk) EVs by +10
    [​IMG]

    Iron

    Boosts Defence (Def) EVs by +10
    [​IMG]

    Calcium
    Boosts Special Attack (SpA) EVs by +10
    [​IMG]
    Zinc
    Boosts Special Defence (SpD) EVs by +10

    [​IMG]
    Carbos
    Boosts Speed (Spe) EVs by +10
    [​IMG]

    Vitamins can be brought on the second floor of the /warp Pokemart!

    Thats the end of this guide, I really hope it helped! Be sure to answer the survey at the top of the thread!
