Ok is it just me or do these games actively prevent you from EV training in sp.atk before at least the halfway point of the game? I just got my 4th badge in black and still there is absolutely nothing I can EV train for sp.atk on except maractus which has a 10% encounter rate. I really want to use my Victini and Zorua in the story, but I don't wana ruin their EV's, esp since there's no ev reducing berries in this game yet. Anyone know when I can finally start cranking up their sp.atk?
I noticed the same thing when I was leveling a couple things. I believe the next things you run into that give sp. atk EV's are Litwick and Elegyn. Then as far as I can remember the last place and only place I train sp. atk EV's at, is the Heatmor's at the bottom of Victory Road.
For curiosity sake, are there any stronger places anyone can think of? I'm training a nearly-perfect Petilil but the tower is slow because of exp. share and it's not able to fight the ghosts on it's own so no macho brace. Another area that would yield better experience or at least let it fight itself would be cool.
