It used to be that I'd get all of the stats as high as I could, like a 28/29+. And I'd have a decent or perfect nature for that Pokemon and any egg moves I wanted. But I never usually got as far as EV training - I'd get bored and go on to the next Pokemon. I never really did it for the teams anyway.
But now I'm a lot more relaxed and just train the Pokemon as-is.
i usually iv breed with the everstone trick. i do advanced iv breeding and its hard though its pretty simple. i think if you dont have good iv's on a pokemon your going to be dissapointed and get a new one, so whats the point of training two pokemon, just wait till you breed a really good one.
How far you go with training?
Um,I..Train my Pokemon...I catch a Pokemon,and...Level it up,train it
..You know,let some hold experience shares,put a lower level on as my first pokemon then in battle let a higher leveled pokemon fight..Shower it with love <3
I don't care for natures,though I find them cute because then you know how your pokemon is,what personality it has.
I didn't even know about IV's and EV's until I saw them on Bulbapedia,even then I didn't think much of it. I just recently noticed IV's(or was it EV's?)in game when I compared two Onix..For no real reason,I didn't want them anyway ;__; So I released them.
Edit: Wait,what's EV training again?Effort Values?.....What?..That has to do with strenghting a certain stat,right?...Yea,I don't EV train,just level up my Pokemon...And walk around with my teams alot..And give them poffins sometimes,after I finish a contest,whether they win or lose,a reward for working hard XD
to be honest I have never ev trained a Pokemon because I dont entirely understand the whole concept of it. If I knew more about it and understanded better then maybe I would ev train, but who knows in the end lol
Back in the day I would catch the poke' I like. Make sure the nature didn't lower any of my good stats (aim for quirky) then train it to lv 100 and i called myself good at pokemon.
It wasn't until my little brother beat me six-out effortlessly that I decided to do the following:
1. mass breed with ditto/everstone for nature
2. Take all with good nature on battle revolution. free battle at lv. 50 all so I can get high iv in the most important stat. if it's speed it has to be 31.
3. Effort train with my own ev spreads.
4. Finally train to level 50 so I can see it's stats when i take my team online.
Simply soft reset for nature then skip to step 3.
Hopefully all this extra effort helps me beat my bro next time. He's a seasoned vet and knows basically every aspect of the game; he shoddy battles like every day.
I go all out...I breed for natures, IVs etc...I plan on getting an AR cause this time consuming process is getting in the way of my schoolwork -_-' is nintendo trying to make kids flunk outa school? xD
