    An EV is a point you get from batling a wild Pokémon.
    Different wild pokémon give different EVs, and when EVs build up you get more points in that stat when you level up.

    Tentacruel (I think) gives 2 Sp. Def Evs, so if you battle lots of Tentacruels, when you level up you will get more points in Sp. Def.

    Crude explanation.

      So, since OG is getting rid of this system, your stats that you get by leveling up will just be set values rather than those stats you get by battling certain Pokémon?

      If it's the only way to get rid of the bug, then I don't care. (Don't ever do much with them.) As long as I can play the game, I'll be happy. And I am pretty sure that getting rid of the EV values will indeed have set values rather then using EV points to make them stronger, but don't quote me on that.

        I agree 100% (except for the "don't quote me" part, just because I didn't want to quote it.) But I just play a game simply to play a game. I don't go through a game, thinking, "Ok, this one is my fast and strong attacker, this one will be my tank, and that one will be my all-arounder. The only "smart playing strategy" I use is keeping a well rounded team.

          EVs won't really cause too much trouble to the game anyway, since there is no online Battle System.

          Go for it!

            I agree with The Smell. I'm fine with no EVs since i'm not gonna play this game competitively anyway. I've told myself to be ready just for the epic story. Even in the main games, i never set up my team balancedly or even EV them through story or anything. I only do so once i completely beat the game or at least E4 (in the main games)

            So yeah, i don't mind Raptor without EVs. We can't play with others also, right? Anything works ingame, although i know this game is gonna be HARD.
            Thanks for all the hard work, OG!

                I was quite dissapointed that the EV system is gone so now i cant play strategicly but hey if you still have imets like zinc and stuff in there then maybe i could manage.

                  I don't think they've got rid of the EV system yet- its just an option if the bug can't be prevented. Personally I don't think it would make a difference having or not having the EV system.

                    That just threw me away from the game a little bit.

                      Since this game wont be played competitively, the system really isnt needed. I mean of course given there was no problems, Id rather have the system. If it needs to be fixed so badly, then out with the system, as it isnt essential to this game at all.

                        I think taking EV's out would be fine, but would it also be possible to make the vitamins (protein, carbos, zinc, etc.) so that they just give you a direct stat boost? instead of doing it with EV's?

                          i thought they already did that? or do they increase both in the games?

                          as for me i don't care if it's in or not i never even new about it till like 2 months ago so i'm not gonna be worried.

                            each vitamin gives you 10 EV's, which is usually about 1 or 2 more stat points when you level up

                            They will be in the game, but the demo is from before all of those pictures and updates you saw past page 14.

                              So I've decide guys. Now I'll temporarily disable the EV system untill I found a better way to fix it.
                              Thanks for understanding me. By the way, the testing progress goes on pretty well and I've finally reached MASTRIC CITY, where the 6th gym located.


                              I'll post screenshot on my testing progress weekly.
                              Explaination of the screenshot:
                              Spoiler:

                              I've reached MASTRIC CITY. I still can't challenge the 6th gym since the JIRACHI event haven't ended. I found a house with TEAM HUNTER GRUNT outside of the house. I guess there is something in it. Who knows, there are 2 leader from CHAOS SIXTEENTH working inside. They are twins.
                              So I've to fight them.


                              Current progress:
                              MASTRIC CITY -- Done
                              MINING Minigame -- Done
                              BAKE-A-CAKE Minigame -- Done

                              So I'm almost there. There are still 3 gyms to go. Stay tune~

                                Good luck with the testing and hope you find a fix to the EV system or if you remove it for good I hope people cope well with it.

                                  I don't mind the missing EV... I never thought that strategically.

                                  Lets hope the testing is complete soon

                                    I haven't been following this thread in ages but the news of the state of the game are great
                                    Myself I think you should try to fix that EV problem but if it's impossible it's not so bad if you leave it out.

                                      Slightly dissapointing with the EVs, but seeing as there are zincs and carbons and such I'll just have to think more strategetically (spelling?) rather than 'go with the flowing' - it may actually improve game!

                                        I never really understood EVs in the first place, so no biggy! :p

                                        Anyway, great progress and I really can't wait to play!

                                        You're an inspiration to all game developers here, showing that it IS possible to come near finishing a game! XD

                                            It's not a hack... It's a custom game made with the Pokémon Essentials Starter Kit.

                                              Well, ya gotta do what ya gotta do. Seeing as there is little use for them w/o the online feature anyway, I'll agree with the others and just say go ahead with nuking the EV system & let the RPG aspect do the talking.

                                                No need for EV's for a non multiplayer game. Keep up the good work, I can't wait for the release.
