Default Question on EV's

I'm not good with EV's, so bear with this noobish question, haha.

When training a Pokemon, do you train up the EV's as soon as you get the pokemon, even if it is not in the form it will be in eventually? Meaning, say I'm training an Eevee, but I want it to be a Umbreon; would I train it as an Eevee or as an Umbreon?

Sorry if the question is phrased weirdly. XD

EVs are permanent, and carry over through evolutions.

You would EV train a pokemon as whatever will be helpful in its final evolution. In your theoretical situation, yes you would train the Eevee as a Umbreon since that is what you will ultimately be battling with.

Okay so you people who do this for I guess "professionally" would breed it, hatch it, give it pokerus, train it for evs, and then level it to where ever?

I don't even know how to EV train.... EV/IVs make no sense to me.

While that may del be the case, it's hardly reason to bump a dead thread to tell people though. If you're interested in learning about EV training, please consult my guide, located in the stickies of this sub-forum or at this link.
