Started EV training my pawnaird

#1shibulatorPosted 11/24/2013 8:02:21 PM
I caught a wild pawnaird at level 32. Its nature is brave and it likes to thrash about. I went to route 1 and fought 60+ patrats/lilipups but when it leveled up, it gained only +2 attack.

What went wrong?

you have to give it stat boosting vitamins and the stats show a bigger change further on not right away. also you gotta make sure the pokemon youre fainting give you the EV's you want.

Patrat and Lillipup give +1 attack EV. After 60 battles, I should gain +15 Attack when I level up plus whatever would naturally distribute due to its nature/characteristic. I haven't given any Proteins to it yet but that's because I don't have enough money and I don't feel like doing a league run.

The point is: after 60 battles with attack-rewarding pokemon, it only gains +2 when it levels up, which suggests that somehow all 63 attack EVs have already been distributed by level 32...which makes no sense...

Using a power belt didn't help either. I'm stumped.

do you have pokerus? that helps the EV training makes it go faster atleast not sure how that would help now but for future things but yea for me the stat boost started goingup more in later levels but yea the proteins are like the main thing as far as i know.

In pokemon black and white and beyond, stats are recalculated after every battle to include EV's. If you were to check a stat, add 4 ev's and check it again, chances are that it went up by 1 automatically. You might also need to check how ev's are calculated.

I recommend the following sites if you haven't looked at them already:

And do get yourself pokerus, and the power bracer if you're training the attack stat.

1 patrat = 1 attack ev
1 patrat + pokerus (doubles ev's gained)= 2 attack ev's
1 patrat + pokerus + power bracer(+4atk ev's) = 10 attack ev's

Thank you.
