The EV mechanics in B/W are the same as in the Gen III and IV games except that the EV gains are seen after battle rather than after level up.

So you have to finish a battle and the ev comes right.

Yes that is correct. <: You'll be able to notice the change in stats.

In addition, since it seems you're into EVing Pokémon within the games, you may be interested in our EV Training Guide for Black and White. ;) It may help you in case you have any questions that may provide an answer for you there.

What are the guidelines around using Action Replay?

I only use it for a few reasons, one would be to quickly train my Pokemon to level 100 rather then taking a longer time. Another is also to hatch my eggs extremely quickly.

But what are the rules around using it to create Pokemon? Because I know there aren't too many prior generation Pokemon available in Black and White, so I use this to build my team but I'm not sure if that's against online play or just shunned upon? I remember reading something about it and that rules still apply even if the Pokemon has 'legit' stats.

So what are the restrictions on using Action Replay for team building for online play?

I think this section is forbidden to talk about action replay. Just enter the code and follow instruction. You don't need no guide lines.

In the white pokemon. What is the legend called there? On the front cover.

You cannot go over the limit of 510 Ev's and your Pokemon must only have the correct stats. I.e Your Charizard cannot have 999 Special attack. Just make them according to min/max stats and such on Serebii.

That's just for code's. \: Anyway, if you're on about White version; it's Zekrom, Black version; Reshiram. <:

For speed, any water/sea route would do fine. Basculin gives 2 Speed EVs and usually the best way to EV train in that stat. If your Pokémon is at a low level, I'd suggest surfing the area in Striaton City for Basculin, as they are usually around their 10-13's if I remember so correctly.

As for Defense, Sewaddle or Venipede should do. They only give 1 pt each but they're pretty easy to come upon within Pinwheel Forest.

Hope this helps. :)

For Defense, defeat Venipede's and Sewaddle's in Pinwheel forest. For speed, defeat Woobat, Blitzle's and Basculin's, dotted around the region. For more help, go to the; Ev training guide.

Wow, thanks. I am about to start EV training for the first time. All my Pokemon are around the level 50s. I want to face Alder--well, first, the OVERPOWERED LVL 75 Elite 4...then Alder.

Edit: What's so special about Shinies other than they are...rare. And...color changed?

If you're EV training for the first time, I'm sure you'll be interested in taking a look at an EV Training Guide I have in specific for Black and White. :)

Also the deal with shinies, is because they are pretty rare to encounter, many tend to be really proud and excited to find one. There are those who don't really care about encountering them though. There's not really much of a story behind shinies besides the fact that they are a different color for a Pokémon. That's all there is to it about 'em, and why they are considered special.

Yep. It's called EV training! If you'd like to take a look at how it works, you can see how in my Frequently Asked Questions sticky under "EV Training Guide".

Should I use AR to hack and get shiny pokemon and any pokemon that I want? Or should I play fairly? Orrrrr, should I play fairly the first time through the game and then hack the second time?

Thanks!

Well, just play the game without cheats, it'll give you a better gameplay experience. However, if you wanna use cheats go ahead and use em'. n___n

Also, if you do end up hacking your shiny's. Do not. Trade them to others, as trading hacks is against the rules. :x

They both have different rare occuring Pokemon in them, for example a surfing spot might spit up a Poliwrath while a fishing spot might give you a Feebas.

It's good to check somewhere like Bulbapedia and it'll give you all the Pokemon and their occurring rates for both.

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Unova_Route_4

In this case, the rippling water when surfing will either give you a Jellicent or a Alomomola. But if you fish in the rippling water then you'll get evolutions and rarer Pokemon from normal fishing such as Huntail, Kingler, Relicanth, whereas if you just fished you can get a Krabby, Clamperl etc.

Thank you!

Also, if I have a Deerling will it change with the seasons? Or do I have to catch separate Deerling if I want all the different seasonal forms?

Your Deerling will rotate and change forms every season. There's no need to catch another.
