Noob EV Training for Support Orbeetle


New Member
Hello, I am looking for how I should spend the ev for a gmax orbeetle that I would like to use in Duo's as a support role.

Here are the stats:
IV: x/31/31/31/x/31 (will hyper train them)
EV: 0 spent
Ability: Telepathy
Nature: +Sp. Attack, - Attack

I am thinking of arraying the EV as follows:
Sp. Defense / Speed. Then spend the rest on Sp. Attack

I appreciate any feedback!


Back when Tigers used to smoke.
I'd just go full HP and Sp. Atk but that's just me. I'd imagine the average competitive player however would recommend to go for full HP and invest in either full defense or a mix of defense, special defense or speed for the support options like Sticky Webs.
