Expressions of the Effort Ribbon Lady - How many EVs your pokemon has.

#1TargetDogPosted 3/27/2010 2:52:56 AM
After meticulously EV training some pokes for a 252 / 252 / 4. EV spread I check the effort Ribbon lady quite a bit to see if i've screwed up my calculations along the way. I noticed that she was saying some different things. And curiously I tried looking it up on the internet. No Dice. So i figured I'd sit down, figure this out and for once in my life, contribute something to the pokemon community. (for anyone who could use it like me) Maybe this should be added to EV training guides.

EFFORT RIBBON LADY EXPRESSIONS.

0 - 505 EVs
Oh? Your [pokemon]......
It needs to work a little harder.
If it does I'll give your pokemon something nice.

506 EVs
Oh? Your [pokemon]......
It's working a little harder, I see.
But it will need some more effort.

507 EVs
Oh? Your [pokemon]......
It's working hard, I see
But it will need just a little more effort.

508 EVs
Oh? Your [pokemon]......
It's working so hard, I see.
But it will need a tiny bit more effort.

509 EVs
Oh? Your [pokemon]......
It's working so hard, i see. It's almost there.
Just the smallest bit of effort, and it'll be there!

510 EVs
Oh? Your [pokemon]......
It worked stupendously hard didn't it?
As its reward, please give it this effort ribbon.

Thanks!

I can pretty much confirm this, as I did the same thing and was very surprised that she says different things if you have 508, 509, or 510 EVs, but I didn't write them down. Very helpful.

I once thought I was indecisive, but now I'm not sure.

I just reconfirmed it on a different ev training pokemon on HG so both versions check out as the same.

I never knew that she said different things. Good info. This will especially help since I (and probably others) sometimes forget to train the last 2 EVs after making a spread.

This can't be true, I was EVing my Togekiss for Sp.Def and I'd kill 10 tentacool with macho brace and pokerus and talk to her.
She said that so many times I thought my game was broken.

She finaly forked over the ribbon an hour later.

I obviously didn't check at every single point from 0 to 500 butI never recieved a single deviation myself. Can anyone else assist with some checking on their own?

I just rechecked again. And found the same results. They are def. set for 505-510 at the very least.
