Discussion: EV Placement

#1RPCShadowclawPosted 11/11/2013 11:08:24 AM
I keep running into conflicting sources and need some clarification. Okay, we've got two groups of EVs - Offensive (The Attacks + Speed) and Defensive (HP + The Defenses).

I've seen EV Training done in so many different ways.

1) Likes bulking out for maximum offence and speed so they kill faster.
2) Likes walling up for maximum defense so they last longer.
3) Focuses on the stats which give the highest numbers
4) Builds up the smaller useful stats for biggest %gain.
5) Boosts the highest offense and the smallest defense.

So, I'm curious. Which of these is the right way to EV Train, and also when exactly is it relevant to put EVs into HP rather than one and/or both of the Defenses?

There's no wrong way to eat a Reese's. I mean EV train.

It all depends on what you want to use the Pokemon for.
