Super Training 100% for me. I tried EV training via hordes just to switch it up (and hunt for shinies), but it is just too time consuming unless you have Pokerus or Power items (I had Macho Brace, but that didnt help too much). I just buy 10 of each vitamin I need and Super Train the rest. After 20 vitamins, even a level 1 Pokemon can train pretty quickly.

I like that you can watch about how many EVs you have in each stats, but the mini game gets old really fast when you train someone to max EVs. I like the idea though. It would be a bit cooler if there were different mini-games for different EVs, like if to train speed you had to do something similar to the hurdles mini-game in the Pokeathlon.

I like the Macho Brace EV training on hordes, but I was glad to have the Super Training option for my Umbreon. The only area attack he can learn is Snarl, and Mime Jr. usually have 3-4 Soundproof in one horde; Making it pointless to grind on them. Super pain in the rear-end.

I also got tired of trying to find Mareep hordes when leveling SAtk on my Luvdisc. Had to finish her training on Super Training as well.

I'll have to try the vitamin thing... plenty of disposable cash floating around after grinding XP at the battle house.

Super training is plain annoying IMO. I usually slap on the power bracelets/anklets etc, and beat hordes.

Same here, not to mention that some pokes have that "Rapid Fire" ball type which is really horrible in Super Training.

I want to get into horde training as I recently just acquired pokerus and heard it gives you boat loads, but right now I use super training. Plus there is the added benefit of super training, training your reflexes as well

If you get the power items and Pokerus, it really speeds it up. Last night I fully EV trained two Litleos in about 20 mins.

The way I see it(note this is my opion)
Super training is more fun.
Horfe battles are fasrer with Power items and Pokerus(but more boring sometimes)

I haven't tried regular EV training before, but from what I've read and been told, it sounds a lot more tedious and easier to screw up than super training. With a combination of hordes and Pokérus, I'm sure that regular EV training can be faster for some stats, but I still find super training easier, personally.

I actually don't regularly use super training for EVs anymore bar maybe that odd 4-8 points. It's useful for collecting bunch of rare evolutionary stones, though.

I was supposed to do Super Training until I discovered it was more faster to do Horde EV Training. You only need a sweet scent, EXP Share and Pokerus and you can max a specific stat in less than a minute.

I just get so bored smacking pokémon about, I did all my original EV training back in GenIII with a notepad & pen keeping track of the points and DREAMED of an easier way. I've still not actually tried Super Training yet, but considering I already run from hordes rather than stay & slog my way through... lets say the horde method is not looking good.

I have been using Super Training for my Charmander and work it to the bone. I've never been the type to try and get perfect EVs, but now that I'm starting I think it's a great and efficient way to get them!

Is there some kind of faster way to get hordes? /noob.
