This is kind of a compilation of the information found in an earlier thread. Thought a list of Horde Encounters and EV yields from them would be helpful to myself and to others, so I sifted through it and pulled what could be taken.

The idea is to use the Power Items* with Pokerus and the easily sweep-able horde encounters to give your pokemon a yeild of 50-60 EV's in a stat for one encounter.

To begin this method, take the pokemon you plan to train and infect it with pokerus. The pokerus will double the effort value yeild when an opposing pokemon is knocked out. (For example, a pokemon gives 1 Speed EV; pokerus will double it to 2.).

Equip the power item for the stat you wish to train, (Weight = HP, Bracer = Attack, Belt = Defense, Lens = Special Attack, Band = Special Defense, and Anklet = Speed.). This will further your effort value yeild an additional four points. (Base 1 Speed EV + Anklet = 5 Speed EVS. With Pokerus = 10.).

Now using a pokemon with Sweet Scent, or the item Honey, you hunt for the Horde Encounter in the chosen area.
Once it is found, you kill them off with a multi-hit move like Surf or Earthquake. This will give you 50-60 EV's in the chosen stat. (Base 1 Speed EV + 4 Speed (Anklet) x 2 = 10 Speed EV's) x 5 Pokemon in a horde encounter = 50 Speed EV's.

The pokemon you wish to train does not have to participate in the battle if you have EXP Share on. However, it does need the power item equipped.


*Power Weight, Power Bracer, Power Belt, Power Lens, Power Band, and Power Anklet
All of these can be bought post Elite Four in Kiloude City, inside the Battle Maison, from the left side shopkeeper woman.

This is an incomplete list at the moment, as I don't know all the horde encounters, and would love some input about other encounter-able hordes.

I will try to update this if I can.

This is the information I have at the moment and would love to update this list with more horde encounters for those who prefer the previous generation(s) method of EV training, like myself.
Any help is appreciated, not just by myself but others who would use this.

This is sharp thinking OP. I've been combining super training w/ egg hatching for effecient EV training but this is even better.

Bump it up again. Anyone know what the policy on bumping a topic is on GameFAQs?

Nosepass hordes on Route 10 can be used to gain Def EVs. For speed, the Elektrike hordes can be found on the same route.

More speed hordes can be found on Route 11, Starly and Stunky.
