View Full Version : Two Questions

June 27th, 2008, 5:22 AM
Hey there guys, just recently signed up so greetings to you all...

I am about to have my first attempt at EV training but I have just two questions that i need help with:

Firstly i've been breeding Chansey's (10k steps each which is a real pain anyway) and the best two I have come out with are a Calm Natured one with Natural Cure and a Bold Natured one with Serene grace. Through using a few moveset guides on Seribii it indicated that Bold and Natural cure was probably the best way to go, and i can't actually be bothered with breeding any more Chansey's as its took me ages to get these two decent ones already, so basically can anyone point out which of the two i should focus on.
My second question is one about EV training, my query is this: say for example i get 5 HP evs from beating 5 caterpies and i level up, im assuming i will get +1 to hp, but my question is where will the other one EV go? will it be carried across to the next level?

Thanks in advance

1) The best chansey is calm with natural care

2) Ev's are random distributed, you may get 4 ev's at lvl 5 and never see them until you reach lvl 90, so yes they do carry over

Psypokes really helped me when I first started EV training. It has pretty much all the information you could need.

Your welcome. :D

You should try getting enough BP at the battle tower for the power items. They make EV training a lot faster!

First of all, nevar use Serebii for competetive advice. I suggest you use Smogon. For me, I actually would prefer Calm over Bold since I normally use Blissey for Specials and can predict when a physical attack is coming, and I just switch out.

And since you get 5 HP EVs this level, but only gain 3 the next level, it still adds up to 8 which means you would get 8 EVs and that equals 2 HP Points. So yes, they do get carried to the next level.
