I've been trying to EV train my shiny Litwick, but nothing has actually been happening. I was doing what I've always done, and it worked back when I EV trained on Heart Gold - Pokerus, the appropriate power item, with a Pokemon that gives the specific EV stat points that I want. However, it seems that my Litwick just hasn't been gaining the EV points, just levelling up as normal. Any idea what's happened?
It definitely hasn't used up all of its EVs, by the way.

Ev's are added on after every battle this time, so instead of adding on after a level up. They get added on after every defeated Pokemon. :3

Also depends on the level at which you're training it. If it's leveling up rather quickly, it won't really show a significant difference, regardless of it being there or not. Though, with Pokerus and the items... I suppose it should show. XD

Really? Thank you for clearing that up, I don't feel so frustrated now xD

It doesn't seem like it has done a great deal though, even though my Litwick only grew two levels throughout the time I was training her Special Attack. She's currently level 30 - will I see a change as her level increases?

    Yes, if you max out sp. attack you should see a large difference as it goes up.
    The very max a litwick can have at level 50 is 128, but I'm betting you will evolve it before then, which will make it even higher since those forms have better stats.

    Yeah, you should see a significant change as it grows in levels. It'll really show once it evolves though (if you do plan on doing that of course.)

      Rare Candie-ing your Pokemon to level 100 after you've distributed your EV's won't effect its stats, it'll be the same as leveling it up normally.

        There is more of a WiFi battle question but anyhow:

        Do I have to train my Pokemon to level 100 or do they instantly get put up to level 100 online?

        You're going to have to train your Pokémon to LV 100. The only level they can set you up as is LV 50. If your Pokémon are under the level of 50, they will remain at that level so keep that in mind as well.

          Not sure if this should go in glitches, but there has to be some kind of explanation for this.

          My lvl 63 Volcarona was v.s.ing a lvl 64 Psyduck. Volcarona has a base speed stat of 100 while Psyduck has a base speed stat of 55. My Volcarona has a Timid nature (benefits speed) and has a good number of EVs on its speed as well, and has 23 IVs for speed. On the first move I chose Whirlwind, but for some bizarre reason, the Psyduck got its hydro pump in first. Then my Volcarona did whirlwind!

          Can anyone explain this besides it being some kind of glitch? This is a genuine game, not a ROM or a hack or anything.

          Were you fighting a trainer? I'm guessing it's possible for trainers to have EVs on their Pokemon just like your own.

            Yeah, but is it even possible for a psyduck at that level to out-speed a volcarona, ev-trained or not? Don't forget mine is also ev-trained and has a beneficial nature for speed, as well as high IVs in speed.


            WAIT wait wait... I feel like an idiot now. I just realised it was probably holding quick claw.

            You would know if it was holding a quick claw, it would tell you right before he attacked "Psyduck used his Quick Claw!" Was it raining?

              Oh... well it can't have been holding a quick claw. No it wasn't raining, it was indoors and it was the first move of the battle.

              Whirlwind will always go behind most moves as it has a decreased priority.

              Whirlwind does indeed have decreased priority akin to Roar, Dragon Tail, Avalanche, Revenge etc. This means it'll go after increased and normal priority moves. It's not a glitch but it is indeed regular battle mechanics that have been in place for a while now.

                  If a pokemon is shiny in the grass or a cave will it be most likely to be in a shaking grass or a dust cloud?

                  No. Shaking grass/dust clouds either have another kind of Pokemon or a higher level Pokemon than the others (or an item in the case of dust clouds), not a higher shiny chance. For example, in Giant Chasm, the shaking grass yields Audinos, Clefables, and Metagross. Each of these still have the 1/8192 or whatever chance to be shiny, it's just a set of Pokemon that can't be found in normal grass.

                    I don't think there is, unfortunately. :/

                      In route 8 I've been to the Moor of Icirrus and now I am trying to get to Tubeline Bridge, which I checked on the map is east from Icirrus City. And these two Team Plasma geezers are blocking my way saying:
                      Apparently some of us are working in the Relic Castle in the Desert Resort!
                      I've been to the museum place and I talked to everyone they did nothing.
                      And I've also got 7 Gym Badges.
                      What do I do to get past?
                      Plz Help ASAP

                      I think that's your answer right there. Seems pretty obvious to me.

                        As for every other pokemon... I have no idea where a list would be, sorry, you might have to use a cheating device to encounter them or ask a friend who may have it.
