Does it worth to train Butterfree speed?

I was thinking about this for some time. Does it worth to EV train Butterfree speed? Compundeyes + Stats Effects ability = Oh god.

I think it is the only "early bug" that has worth using, so I was thinking of that ability.

For ingame, EV training is very unnecessary and highly discouraged. If it's competitive, then sure, Butterfree could use the Speed.

If I know, killing Koffings raises speed very well, and that weird motorcycle dudes on the Bike park does help at training before going to the last Gyms.

Koffing raises Defense. Remember the EVs given by a pokemon usually reflect its best stat. Speed is anything but that one. >_>

Aw.

Fail.

Then ponyta raises speed? No problem, this is the highest wild level monster in the game on the moment.

you can always check here http://www.serebii.net/pokedex-rs/ to get a list of pokemon sorted by what EVs they give

edit: yes, ponyta gives 1 speed

The best when it mattered.

probably because serebii can conveniently list all pokemon which yield the desired type of EV, while that FAQ requires checking each pokemon individually to see if they provide good EVs or not

trying to use that FAQ to see what you can battle for a specific type of EV would be horrendously inefficient
