Question Will this work?

OK. I have PKRS and the Macho Brace. So I'll quadruple my stats this way. Except for speed because the Macho Barce reduces it. So for this to work I'm thinking about catching pokemon whos nature increases their speed. Like timid, Hasty, Jolly or Naive.
Timid = (+ speed) (-attack)
Hasty = (+speed) (-defense)
Jolly = (+speed) (-special attack)
Naive = (+speed) (-special defense)

So that takes care of the speed problem. The speed will increase with these natures + beating pokemon that give 3EV points to it.
Then, for the (-) stats. All I have to do is challenge pokemon who will give me 3 Evs for them. So when I beat them I'll get a total of 12 EVs.

For ATK.
Swampert, Shiftry, Salamence, Groudon.

For Def.
Golem, Aggron, Metagross, regirock

For Sp. ATK
Vileplume, Alakazam, Beautifly, Gardevoir, Kyogre

For Sp. DEF
Articuno, Dustox, Ludicolo, Regice, Latias

Do you guys think this is a good way to make better pokemon?

(Yes, I'm aware that getting some of them to be a certain nature is going to be hard but, I'm patient so I have no problem with that.)

I think it is good but one problem.Like you said it will take a long time to get the natures.So the Pokerus could be gone before you get even one of them.

Not if he keeps it in his PC. And periodically changes pokemon's boxes before they stop spreading.

I don't get why would you try to compensate the stat the nature reduces. If you have a Jolteon and make it Timid, you don't need to EV train for Atk EVs.

You should always pick a nature that reduces the stat the pokemon doesn't need (or the stat it needs the least). It's sometimes useless to try to compensate the loss of stats from natures with EVs; you'd be wasting a lot of useful points

He's also forgetting that macho brace's speed reduction is temporary, and only happens when it is equipped.

Well it's because of the Macho Brace.It lowers the Speed stat so I wanted to get PKMN that would get a + Speed nature. Since the PKRS would negate the Macho Brace from lowering speed it would stay the same. So, thats why I want PKMN with + Speed natures. To actually increase it.

I have it equipped at all times. So, it's permanent in my case.
Until I switch it to another PKMN.

uh? Macho Brace reduces the Speed stat, not speed EVs. Having a +Speed nature just because you're using the Macho brace is useless, as the speed stat goes back to normal once you take off the Macho brace.

The PKRS spreads to other pkmn right? If so, than your method will work.

..................Oh. Now I just learned that.
Thanks again Lucavi.Oh, well. I still like having the upperhand in striking 1st in a battle.
It's good for inflicting status conditions.

I'll rethink my plans for the future. I'll be back with more ideas later.
