Default Pokemon D/P EV Spots / EV Training Guide.

THANKS TO ARCHOFICLE OFF IGN BOARDS FOR THIS!!!
First off...what is EV training?

EVs (or Effort Values) are gained when battling Pokemon. Each Pokemon that you battle gives out a certain amount of Effort Values. Effort Values are hidden from view though, so it is up to you to keep track of this.

Each Pokemon gain up to a total of 510 EVs. Every 4 EVs equals one stat point gained when you level up (if you gained 4 EVs of that stat while training). Out of those 510, 508 of them are usable (508 is divisible by 4 and 510 is not). However, each stat can only have a maximum of 252 usable Effort Values. That means you can max out 2 different stats. 252 EVs translates into 63 stat points. (63 times 4 is 252). Also, this can be supplemented by a nature. (A beneficial nature adds 10% more stat points overall, while a hindering nature takes away 10% overall. So a Pokemon with an Adamant nature gets 10% MORE stat points in Attack but 10% LESS stat points in Special Attack).

Now on to where you can do this in Diamond and Pearl?

SPECIAL:
~*added by me* Unowns (((+1 EV for SP. ATK and +1 ATK EV.)))
~TIP: *contributed from Beech Daly* Fight Low level pokemon so you don't gain alot of EXP while getting a good amount of EV's. High levels make pokemon grow faster and make EV training a tad harder.

HP:
~Shellos at Valley Windworks north of ignore the Buizel (+1 each)
~Gastrodons at Fuego Ironworks or Route 213 ignore Floatzel (+2 each)
~Gastrodons outside of Pal Park (+2 each) *are there Floatzel here?*


Attack:
~Kricketune and Bibarel at route 212 (rainy route) (+2 each)


Defense:
~Cave with Geodudes and Hippos off route 214 (+1 each) *name?*
~Onix and Gravelers on Iron Island in the second room ignore Golbats (+1 Onix) (+2 Gravelers)


Special Attack:
~Gastly at the Old Chateau in Eterna Forest (+1 each) (Haunters +2) (Gengars +3)
*Need GBA Game in GBA slot and National Pokedex for Haunters and Gengars*
~Golducks surfing in the water at the Resort Area (+2 each)


Special Defense:
~Surfing any ocean/sea area for Tentacools (+1each)
*North of 8th gym town has been good ignore Pellipers* (Mantykes +1)


Speed:
~Raticates and Fearows Northwest of the Fight Area (+2 each) *name?*
~Zubats in a cave (+1 each)
*anyone know whats the best cave?*
__________________________________________________ ______________________________
*Vs Seeker Trainers*


HP:
~Route 209 - Cowgirl - L14, 15, 15, 15, and 16 Bidoof (5 HP)

Attack:
~Route 203 - Lass - L38 Staraptor, L38 Bibarel (5 Attack)

Defence:
~N/A

Special Attack:
~Route 214 - Collector - L20, 22, and 24 Roselia (6 Sp. Attack)

Special Defence:
~N/A

Speed:
~Route 205 (on the water bridge) - Fisherman - L10, 10, 10, 10, 10, and 10 Magikarp (6 Speed)

__________________________________________________ ___________________________________
*Power Items and Pokerus*


Power Items:
These items boost the number of EVs gained per battle with a pokemon in their respective stat.

Power Ankle: Boosts Speed EVs

Power Band: Boosts Special Defense Evs

Power Belt: Boosts Defense EVs

Power Bracer: Boosts Attack EVs

Power Lens: Boosts Special Attack EVs

Power Weight: Boosts HP EVs


Equation goes like this:

x + y = t

x = EV's from pokemon
y = EVs boosted from Power Items (+4)
t = Total EVs


Now with Pokerus we multiply the whole left side of the equation by 2 so...

2(x + y) = t

Now assume we have a pokemon that grants 2 points per battle...

2(2 + 4) = 12
Speeding up EV Training

Macho Brace
- Lowers the speed of the holder, but doubles the amount of EVs you get from one battle. (example: If you fight a Starly for Speed EVs, you get 2 EVs instead of the normal 1 EV.

Pokerus
- Doubles the amount of EVs you get from a battle.

Vitamins
- Adds 10 EVs to a stat, but stops working if that stat already has 100 more EVs in it.

EXP. Share
- Not only does the wearer gain half the experience from a battle, but it ALSO gains EVs. So, for example, if someone battles a Pidgey for one EV of Speed, the both the Pokemon that battled and the wearer of EXP. Share gain 1 EV in Speed EACH. (If, say, a Pidgeotto battles and a Gastly is wearing the EXP. Share, then both Pidgeotto and Gastly each get 1 EV; the amount of EVs gained is not split in half.)

Reducing EVs
In Pokemon Emerald version, there are 6 berries that can reduce EVs. Each one reduces 10 EVs from their respective stat.

- Pomeg Berry - HP
- Kelpsy Berry - Attack
- Qualot Berry - Defense
- Hondew Berry - Special Attack
- Grepa Berry - Special Defense
- Tamato Berry - Speed

If you want both Attack and Special Attack EVs - useful for total sweepers (which are both physical and special sweepers) - you might want to fight Unowns. Where, perhaps, do you see those? Well, they are in the Solaceon ruins. It's in the west end of the city.

Unown is 1 point for both Attack and Special Attack. Xatu and Charizard might be the perfect ones for there. Maybe even Giratina.

I have a question...

Will you get more EV's by fighting a bunch of lower-level Pokemon and slowly gaining EXP than by fighting a bunch of higher-level Pokemon and gaining EXP more quickly?

I'd go for the lower level ones. Mainly because the higher level ones give you much more experience points, which means they will level up quicker, but with less EVs.

I used to think the higher ones were good to train upon, but seeing how my Crobat's stats sucked at level 100, I was dead wrong.

Yeah, that would seem like the most logical thing to me. So that means I should train my own Pokes, since they gain less experience?

5F of Lost Tower is a pretty good place to train Speed (Zubats and Golbats, low levels). It might also be good for a Special Sweeper, since there are Ghastlys there too (sorry if I'm wrong about Ghastly raising Sp. Attack).

And I think the cave on Route 214 is called Ruin Maniac Tunnel, or Ruin Maniac Cave... not sure which

Haelleah, you are correct. Gastly is 1 point for Special Attack. And the cave at Route 214 is Ruin Maniac's Cave.

How many different Unown have you caught? The more you caught, the deeper the Maniac digs into the cave, and it's where Hippopotas is at.
