EVs explained! PLEASE READ!

I can't decide how to finish EV training Snorlax. I wan't to max his Atk, but don't know how best to distribute the remaining EV's between HP, Def, and Sp.Def.

Smogon's 'offensive' setup in B/W neglects HP completely, while others elsewhere have said to put some effort into HP. Advice?

(Sorry if this was asked in the topic further along, I just skimmed through the later parts)

Since we have Exp All this time around, does this mean I don't have to switch in my Level 1 Dunsparce when I'm EV training in Defense while he's holding a Macho Brace? I'm assuming that's the case, since he's still gaining Exp and that means gaining EVs. But I just don't know if items take effect...?

If I get a ghastly hatch from egg ( level 1 )

And I use super train for his speed and special attack till 252 each.

And the rest at HP.

From there's I start train up my ghastly after I max out the super trainer.

Will it be perfect?

As far as EVs go. Let's not overlook the importance of IVs and Nature.

2 EVs? Don't bother. 510 doesn't divide evenly by 4, so you'll always have two leftover EVs.

But to answer your question, Tamato.

HI Jay having read that im still not sure what to do with my team. Wanna finally start training them in EVs but they are all around lvl50. Some I have done a little EV training with (super training), some I don't think I have done any and some I have no idea (aquired through trade).

I guess they all have EV's all over the place so is the thing I need to get a reset bag, if so how can I get it and use it? Or if they won't have many EV's yet should I just start super training then?

I still can't understand what stats EV's get applied to if they are gained from battles either, are they just evenly spread around all of them?

It depends on what they fought.

Have your Pokemon punch the default black punching bag for a while to get random punching bags, including Reset Bags. Remember that you can only have twelve special punching bags, so if you already have twelve, use or discard some.

OK thanks im gonna try it.

But once im done so do I then do the soccer challenges in the stats I want, up to level 3 and then punch the bags. Or do I punch the bags after each challenge?
