So a friend of mine told her it's a hell of a lot quicker to EV train on hordes than anything else, so I'd like some help.

I'll be EV training a Fletchling. It will have 252 Atk EVs, 252 Speed EVs and 4 HP EVs. I'll easily take care of the HP ones in a super training session, but the rest I'd like to take care of with horde training, so I'd just like to have some stuff addressed.

The Pokemon WILL have Pokerus. It WILL have the Power Bracer/Anklet.

I plan to have the helper be Greninja with surf who is already maxed out on EVs, weather or not that matters.

Say I run into a horde of Bellsprouts who grant +1 Atk ev. I have the exp share on. Fletchling is holding the Power Bracer. I use surf and take each bellsprout out in one hit.

+5 EVs are ready to distribute.
Pokerus Doubles = +10
Power brace doubles = +20

Each time I take out a squad of Bellsprouts, Fletchling is given +20 attack EVs, correct? I repeat this process until 12 hordes are defeated, leaving my Pokemon with 240 Attack EVs and then get the remaining 12 through super training.

Do I have the right idea?

Yes. You can also just fight one more horde battle since the EVs will cap anyways.

As long as you have EXP share on you'll be fine.

This number is correct. You need to kill 5 hordes for 250 evs. 6 for 252 because I'm pretty sure that's the max number of evs allowed this gen.

Ugh, can someone explain how the distribution works though? Do I get 20 EVs per fight or more?

Actually, the Power item gives the +4 to the original +1 from defeating a Bellsprout, so that is +5 x 2 because of Pokerus giving 50 EV per horde. You have the right idea though, yeah.

you gain an extra +4 (from the power item) for EACH pokemon you kill (you murderer.)

therefore, you start with the 5 from the 5 belsprouts, and +20 from the power item (4 x 5 for each pokemon) and double it to take into account the pokerus
