I'm a little bit confused about EV's. It says that for every 4 EV points you gain from battle, you gain one point in that stat at lvl 100. Does that mean if you earn 4 EV points (lets say defense) on a pokemon lvl below 100, no stat change will occur until your pokemon turns lvl 100? I remember EV training my other pokemon and when I got the fourth EV point, my stat would go up one point, even if the pokemon was below lvl 100. But now, I was trying to EV train my Vaporeon for someone, for defense. It's lvl 23 right now, facing lvl 10 roggenrola which gives one defense. I got 8 EV's in defense, yet it hasn't budged from it's original 37 from lvling last time(was a +1). It even has Pokerus. Does it have to lvl for changes to occur (although that wasn't the case for my other pokemon) or what? I'm really confused, as you can see. Will anyone help a poor soul out please?
Ev's will update at the end of each battle, or if the pokemon changes forms (like shaymin or giratina). When a pokemon levels, the EV's determine the +X stats they gain, so if you max out your vaporeon's def EV's (252) then every level or very close to that you'll gain +3 def, while you may or may not get +3 in def if its not maxed out.
When you have very low values of EV's the changes are quite minor, so its harder ot see the change. Plus at higher levels the changes become even more dramatic. I had a gardevoir with maxed EV's in SpA/SpD, and those stats on her were over quadruple all of her other stats at lvl 50-ish. So over time you'll see stronger values, while lower levels just don't have enough time to really show off the EV's.

Summary: lower levle pokemon only slightly show EV's in their stats, while higher levels change a ton. And ev's are calculated at the end of each battle, so you cna EV train lvl 100 pokemon.

Hmm I would recommend a fire type, perhaps litwik/lampent? That could replace your deerling is doubling up on both of his/her types.

Unless you plan on doing competitive battles, you don't really "need" to have a perfectly balanced team though. What you have is just fine for doing anything in game. :D

Just so you know, this thread isn't for trading. :3 Instead, send a visitor message or a private message to the member, or alternatively, there's a trade section for trading as seen [ here. ]

does the pokemon you send to the dream world affect the amount of points or interactioon in DW. for example would sending a lv2 lilipup have the same affect as a lv55 stoutland?

Why not a Herdier?

Nope, the Pokemon you send in doesn't make a difference at all, though the actions you take within the DW, aka, watering, etc, make the difference.

It...depends what you mean. This thread is where you ask questions, yes. By dream world neighbours you mean dream pals, yes? The best way to get dream pals is by (while you're in the DW) clicking "dream pal map" and clicking the name in the bottom right corner, it'll take you to their world, and then you just click dream pal request in the top corner of their world - and once they accept, they become your neighbour in a sense, easily accessible once you click on dream world map. The people you can visit are random, though.

You go to their islands and you press the chat button in the upper right. It opens up a menu that has a list of preset questions you pick from. You can't write anything, so it's kind of useless.

Of course, that's not what you meant, is it?

Sounds like it's a flash issue (or really bad Internet). Upgrade your flash player and try again, make sure you're using a browser like safari or chrome too, 'cause later firefox versions could also cause that issue.

On a fast Internet speed it goes through the numbers really quickly and on slow it doesn't, but when it loads, you'll be able to tell because it'll progress from zero. XD

I usually go from 0% straight to 53%, then 80-something and finally to 100%. Then it goes again for like three seconds and I'm in the Dream World.

Something I've been thinking about, is there a great desire for EV'd pokemon only because of the time it takes to grind it out? When I feel like it I can EV train any pokemon in an hour or so, which doesn't seem like that much time, though I guess I can't judge on that considering I live a very relaxed life style.

If EV training was desired because of the time investment, is there also a very high demand of EV trained pokemon? In that if I grinding out an EV trained haxorus, what would it be normal to trade it for something like a shiny furret? Would the haxorus also need to be lvl 100 to be considered EV trained?

Perhaps a simpler question is, what does it mean when someone wants an EV'd pokemon? Just maxed EV's? Or maxed EV's and maxed level? Does it depend on the person trading? And is an actual EV trained pokemon valuable in common trades? Or are they for specialty trades where you only trade EV'd pokemon for other EV'd pokemon?

When people ask for an Ev'd Pokemon, they usually expect the Ev's to be right, I.e not just any old junk and also a good movesets, most people use the competitive battling movesets from Smogon. They're not really in high demand but people just collect them. If the Pokemon is really wanted then I guess a shiny Furret could be traded for it.

So then its more of a convenience to have an EV'd pokemon that already has a moveset? Makes sense, but I was still curious to see if there was something more to it than just training them. XD Thanks.

I have recently been to the Dream World for the first time and met some older generation pokemon friends. But I only have 4 badges and I've heard that you don't get your national pokedex until you have beaten all 8 gym leaders. So what will happen if I try to import an old pokemon into the game when I don't have a pokedex that recognises it?

It shows up as a ??? number until you get the National Dex, that's all. You can still import them and use them in-game with no problems.

Most have been released, including HP healing, status healing, super-effective damage reducing, EV berries, etc.

But stat up berries haven't been released yet. Nor Enigma Berries, I think.

The same way you RNG for IVs, but you switch your target to the PIDs that call for shininess.
