If you are EV training a level 1 pokemon with pokerus and you battle a pokemon that gives it 2 EVs (4 with pokerus) in a certain category, but makes your pokemon level up to level 4, will the EVs count for only 4, or 4 for each level? Also, if I the pokemon were to be giving 1 EV (2 with pokerus) and it gains multiple levels, will those not count because they don't equal 4, or does it just have to be in increments of 4 in the long run?

None of that matters. All the EVs will count, it doesn't matter when you get them.

^With Pokerus and Power Bracer, you get 10 EV's per 1 Attack EV pokemon, so you need to beat 25-26. If you use 10 Protiens before you begin training, you only need to beat 15-16.

Should I use Scrafty or Mienshao?

They're both great pokemon, but if you already have your Jolly Mienfoo, train that.

If you want speed give Mienshao a try, but if its low defenses worry you, use Scrafty, who has nice bulk, and access to Dragon Dance.

Should I use Scrafty or Mienshao?

They function in very different ways, so it all depends on what you need. I use Scrafty with Dragon Dance, which is just ridiculous in-game (it ripped through Cynthia's whole team when it was about 10 levels lower than them). I think it would also do well with bulk up, seeing how bulky it really is. Mienshao is cool, awesome design in my opinion, and a pretty great attack stat it can use with for example the U-turn regenerator combo. Works well with life orb, but it can also use Acrobatics and the flight jem.
I personally use and love both of them^^

Whats a good move set for a competitive physical charizard?
I was thinking Adamant w/ life orb
Substitute
Belly Drum
Flare Blitz
Outrage
thoughts?

substitue, belly drum are an effective combo but with life orb and flare blits you probably are not lating more than one attack, I suggest trying to go for salac berry(If you got it) and change flare blitz for other move, oturage makes the fire dragon combo but it may make you lose as it gets you locked I would change it for eartquake

Okay thanx it makes sense but no STAB moves? Do you have a whole moveset suggestion for a physical charizard?

As a In-Game team there is not to much perfection that you need but there is something I need to point, sableye´s ability will make him always go last so take in mind that, all the other thing are well.

when I said change flare biltz I meant for another fire move say fire punch or fire fang, the idea is not killing youself with recoil, and you have max attack thanks to belly drum you should kill anything in one hit
