    .. my current battle team. I've got a versatile mix up (not fine-tuned to my preferred Pokemon team), that worked out.. kind of. I currently have 5 Pokemon that I am trying to get some effective EV training on. I'll list below what my current team consists of, their levels, stats, and all other related traits.

    What I'm trying to get advice on, is where to go / what to fight to get the most effective build for my current group. Any and all assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Power Hitter / Lead: PALKIA
    Level: 70 Nature: Impish
    HP: 220
    ATK: 230 Slash: Normal
    DEF: 174 Earth Power: Ground
    Sp.ATK: 220 Dragon Claw: Dragon
    Sp.DEF: 180 Spacial Rend: Dragon
    SPD: 170

    Purpose: Effectively kill / defeat stuff. No EV Training on this Pokemon.

    EV Growth 1: Fire-Type: INFERNAPE
    Level: 55 Nature: Naive
    HP: 158
    ATK: 130 Cut: Normal
    DEF: 107 Rock Smash: Fight
    Sp.ATK: 148 Calm Mind: Psychic (Will be changing)
    Sp.DEF: 88 Flame Wheel: Fire
    SPD: 158

    Purpose: All around Power House, with a good bit of HP. EV Training: STR, Sp.ATK, HP.

    EV Growth 2: Flying-Type: STARAPTOR
    Level: 35
    HP: 116
    ATK: 101
    DEF: 71
    Sp.ATK: 57
    Sp.DEF: 44
    SPD: 78

    Purpose: Super fast Sweeper type. Unsure of what EVs needed for such a build. P.S. Not going to keep putting Nature and Movesets in. Too tedious. Lol.

    EV Growth 3: Electric-Type: PIKACHU
    Level: 39 (Is using Exp. Share Item)
    HP: 88
    ATK: 74
    DEF: 33
    Sp.ATK: 58
    Sp.DEF: 40
    SPD: 87

    Purpose: Fast Special Ability Heavy Hitter. EV Training, I believe, would be Sp.ATK and SPD.

    EV Growth 4: Water- Dragon-Type: GYARADOS
    Level: 36
    HP: 118
    ATK: 100
    DEF: 67
    Sp.ATK: 56
    Sp.DEF: 85
    SPD: 67

    Purpose: Heavy Duty Tank. EV Training, I believe, would be HP and DEF.

    EV Growth 5: Rock- Ground-Type: ONIX
    Level: 35
    HP: 78
    ATK: 52
    DEF: 114
    Sp.ATK: 32
    Sp.DEF: 44
    SPD: 70

    Purpose: Secondary Power House Hitter. Assumed EV Training: ATK, HP, Sp.ATK.

    Plans for next Growth Batch:

    MACHAMP - Fighter-Type
    ALAKAZAM - Psychic-Type
    MISDREAVIUS - Ghost-Type
    LUXRAY - Electric-Type
    PACHIRISU - Electric-Type
    PONYTA - Fire-Type
    EEVEE - Evolution Training, EV Training, and Multiple Type breeding. (Will need help with DITTO usage to accomplish.)

    More will come after this stated group is finished up.

    I intend to give PIKACHU a Thunderstone after he reaches roughly Level 50, to evolve him in to RAICHU.

    What I'm trying to get help on here, is where to go, and what to fight to try and get the desired Team Role for each Pokemon. I would like to join the WiFi competitive Battling, but I don't know squat about EV Building.

    I've intentionally excluded EV building for any of my Legendary Pokemon, because I know they are not permitted in certain events, and are mostly just for a story element to their respective games.

    As an aside: I also intend to do some work in the Battle Tower, so any suggestions in regards to that would also be greatly appreciated.

    Again, I thank any and all for any advice, suggestions, or help that they can offer.

    HeartGold, Black, and Black 2 FC's Coming Soon!

    Since advice and ratings on Pokemon teams, both competitive and in-game belong better in the Battle Center, I'll move it along there. I'm assuming this is more of a in-game team.., however if I'm wrong, just inform Wolflare, and he'll handle the thread for you accordingly. :)
