Now it's all this complacated stuff. i remember when you just grabbed the fire type. make sure its ten levels higher than the gym leaders and you would always win.

I'm sorry but what? Are you implying that you need to EV train during the main storyline of the Pokemon games? That strategy of being a higher level that you mentioned still works out just fine for me, I don't know what Pokemon game you're playing

Let's make this very clear people, EV training is only necessary for competitive battling, I've trained tens of dozens of them that way just for that purpose, but for the main game? I give no ***** about their stats, I just level them and then when I feel like EV training I breed a new team AFTER I beat the game

********! in Pokemon Black white 2. If you had a level 60+ ice pokemon (lets just say) and faced a fie type level 30< pokemon. That fire type, even if you won, would **** up your day. Levels just don't seem to apply anymore.

Oh my god super effective attacks hurt. Who would've thunk it, it's almost like super effective attacks are designed to do more damage and that fire types counter ice types, also I have a hard time believing a level 60 wouldn't oneshot a level 30, I think you pulled that right outta your ass

Was just an example, but No i didn't, I used normal type attacks, and almost one shotted him, but when he attacked I almost died regardless of the level diffrence. You see my point?

I disagree with your opinion. I can see why you feel that way, but for me, EV training adds a whole nother level of complexity. And if you do it right, EV training doesn't seem tedious. I personally like having a Charizard with an attack stat 50 points above everyone else's. How about a Porygon Z that can OHKO a Blissy? All this and more is possible with EV training. Other wise, it's a little function in the game you can simply ignore.

My question I pose to you is: Why do you give a flying ****? Clearly you're a whiny bitch if you're upset by the things other people like doing.
Also, you aren't even justified! No one not crazy does EV Training, it only matters in competitive battling and if you are competitive battling, you use a simulator, or you just Pokesav it.

And also to train up stats it was still tedious, MORE tedious than it is now the fastest way to max out every stat back then was to knock out 656 mews, a pokemon you couldn't fight without a glitch or hacking, come on now

You are a ******* moron. You argued that there are no EV's, then show how there were EV's. Remind me never to have you in a debate on my side of the battle. Youngchief, bobkiller, EV's were around, youngchief was originally correct. They just weren't the same, and ev training didn't exist. It's simple as that. This is ******* retarded, and bobkiller should feel like a *******. Take the picture you posted to youngchief and apply it to yourself. NEVER switch your side of the argument and keep trying to argue. you just sound like the ******* you are proving yourself to be.

i never understood EV training.
i just trained with my blaziken until he was a high enough level to actually beat the enemy, rather then fiddle around with silly stats.

as far as my opinion goes, and while i might get hate for it, people who EV train take the game way too seriously.

Yes, strange as it sounds. I put my Red version into the little expansion dealie you got with Pokemon Stadium and Pokemon Stadium 2, well, when I looked at my Charmander in Pokemon Stadium 2, it was shiny... so I transferred it to my Gold version which has now died and can't hold a save file anymore. You can play it, but it won't save anything.

bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Shiny_Pok%C3%A9mon#In_the_games

In Generation II, Shininess is determined by the IVs of a Pokémon. If a Pokémon's Speed, Defense, and Special IVs are 10, and its Attack IV is 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11, 14 or 15, it will be Shiny. This determination allowed for compatibility with Generation I, as if a Shiny Pokémon is traded back, then traded forward, it would retain its Shininess. Despite the bonus of backward compatibility allowing for a Shiny Pokémon to learn Generation I TMs, provided it was a Generation I Pokémon, Shiny Pokémon are only slightly above average in terms of IVs.

In Generation III, most of the data structures were redone. As such, a Pokémon's Shininess would no longer need to be linked to its stats due to incompatibilities between the previous generations. The determinant for Shininess is instead a calculation based on the Trainer ID number and secret ID number of the player encountering it and the personality value of the Pokémon. The same method is used in Generations IV and V.


All in all, a pokemon would need a certain combination of IV's in order to be shiny.
Now, the pokemon relies on the trainer ID of the first owner, your ID and the personality value. If the pokemon is not yours, (traded), you have a higher chance of breeding a shiny. It no longer has anything to do with IVs

No and in fact in the earliest possible generations to get shinies in they were actually statistically worse. Because of the equation they used they were impossible to have flawless IV spreads on. They do tend to be cool though
