          I have previously looked up EV training and tried it, but I couldn't be bothered and I didn't really see the point of it, nor think that it would help me in any way.

            the point of it is so when you battle someone else over wifi you have a better chance of winning. non-ev'd pokes vs ev'd pokes will get crushed everytime

              I could EV train. I have the patience to do it. But I'd rather not.

              I don't play competitively because I personally think that it takes the fun out of the game. I'd rather not sacrifice Pokemon because they have 2HP left and they are considered "useless," and I'd rather not use Pokemon that are considered powerhouses, even though I really despise them in reality. That's just my opinion. You may think differently, and that's cool.

              So, I only play in-game stuff, and EV training in-game just takes the fun out of everything, like resetting for good natures. It makes everything too easy. I'd rather just train normally.

                Nope. It's completely pointless. They won't have the right nature or IVs in the stats you want, so competitive viability is 0. No need to waste precious early in-game time on that. I just use my starter like normal and EV train after I beat the game and have everything I need for it.

                  No, not on my starters...
                  But I did EV-train my Haunter for practice, since I'd never done it before. Noticeable difference, I freakin' saw it.

                  Still... I don't have the patience to EV-train a whole team, let alone my starters as well, so... in keeping on topic, no, I don't EV-train my starters.

                    Never. I never get a good natured starter so I don't bother. Of course I just wait till I get later in the game to catch a decent Pokemon.

                        I never bothered to EV train any of my starters. I play through the game for fun, then if I want to, I EV train a new competitive team. Considering how my teams have gone in Shoddy, though, it might be a while untill I get something worth breeding/training.

                          You could always get the right nature.

                          Personally, I don't usually EV train before the Elite Four, but I may undo their EVs, to start EV training them after the league.

                          Not the first time through, but after I beat the e4 I do. Its not worth it to fight 126 starlies and however many whatevers i have to fight for attack ev's. I just fight stuff and such. And just severely over level my pokemon, its much easier

                            Why would I EV train my pokemon in the beginning of the game when it's nearly impossible to do it (because of the lacking variety in pokemon that you run into) and also probably a waste unless you have been patient enough to SR for a starter with a good nature/good IVs?

                            Pointless in my opinion.. your starter is for playing through the game. If you want an Infernape, an Empoleon or a Torterra that's viable for competitive battling you should just breed your original starter with a Ditto until you hatch one with good IVs and a good nature.

                            Simple as that.

                                  If my starter happens to have a good nature and it so happens that I want to use it on a team it'll be EV trained. I usually ditch my starters though. :\

                                    Well the only reason I EV train my starters is because I usally get PWNed by the Elite Four >:O

                                    I tried it on my Platinum Empoleon. So not worth the effort (or the waste of EV reducing berries). I'd rather breed the starter anew so I can control its IV's and nature and everything.

                                      I don't EV train at all, I know how to but it's a pointless waste of time.

                                          Not exactly. EV training is a special process where you only battle one species of pokemon over and over again. After doing this quite a few times, your pokemon will have gained stat points known as EVs. For every 4 EVs you gain, +1 more than regular is added when you level up/when you reach level 100. For example, a Modest Magnezone (+ Special Attack, - Attack) would normally have 158 Attack on level 100 (If it has the lowest Attack possible, that is), but if you give it 4 Attack EVs while levelling, it would have 159 Attack on level 100.

                                          Do you understand this?

                                          And no, EV training isn't boring. At least not in my opinion.

                                          ill breed the starter for ivs and natures after the E4 because its too time consuming to ev train in the beginning of the game (and hard)

                                          Why bother? I don't have access to wifi. I'll never need to build a competitively viable team. Even if I did, I'd more likely just breed a new one instead of using the one I played through the game with.
