Chimchar evolves at level 14, but learns Nasty Plot (sharply raises sp atk) at level 23. if i wait until level 23 to evolve it, will its stats be lower than if i evolved it at level 14? since Chimchar has lower stat gains than Monferno?

No, it won't. It doesn't matter when you evolve a Pokémon, its stats will be the same. --- Pokemon Diamond Version: 2706 8992 9335 Super Smash Bros. Brawl: 5413 1491 5440

It's times like these I wish people weren't afraid of math; one read of the stat formula would put all these questions to rest once and for all. --- PKMN HeartGold: 5414-2589-3228 | SSBB: 4253-3152-9910 ACCF: David @ Mac Anu 3008-2385-3167
and chaos, i truly appreciate that incredibly useful and thoughtful answer. ever considered the fact that i might not be aware of what a "stat formula" is? keep in mind that not everyone's as educated in the respected field of pokemon as you are.

Stat = (((2 * BaseStat + IV + (EV / 4)) * Level / 100 + 5) * Nature) For HP the formula is: HP = ((2 * BaseStat + IV + (EV / 4)) * Level / 100 + Level + 10)
There isn't any term there for Level of Evolution. Therefor, the level of evolution doesn't matter. --- ars adeo latet arte sua

Don't insult TC; His idea is quite common among newer people and is definitely not intuitively obvious. I mean, it would seem, to somebody who doesn't know the stat formula and doesn't even know that there really is one, that the longer you spend training as a more powerful pokemon, the stronger you'll be.
There are some bad questions, but this doesn't really warrant sarcasm IMO. --- The Ninja Spider --- Platinum FC: 0818 0004 7798 "It is even harder for the average ape to believe that he has descended from man." - H. L. Mencken

feel free to point out a word that i spelled wrong. And please explain how I would google "stat formula" if i wasn't aware of it in the first place. logic is a beautiful thing, you should look into it. <3

I meant grammar, really. Also, googling 'pokemon evolve stats' or searching 'evolve' on this very board would give you your answer. Assuming who you are talking too isn't a jerk is a beautiful thing, you should look into it. --- http://aevelocity.com/ Webcomic of awesome. You should read it.
