k, so just to be clear, if you were to reset bag, say, a level 89, and then super train in again, it would have some effect on it?

Define "some effect".

It would adjust your stats to whatever they would have been if you super trained the way you did after you used the Reset Bag in the first place.

Oof this is gonna take awhile for me to understand. So I understand that EVs are entirely different from stats (HP, Attack, Defense, etc.) but they do not determine the stats? Or at least not affect it in some way? I had thought that for every 4 EVs you allot 1 point for a stat for whichever the 4 EVs fall under. I understand there is a base stat for each species of pokemon, and stats can also be determined by IVs, correct? But are where EVs fall under in a stat category determined by a pokemon's nature if EVs affect stats at all? Or a better question would be how does a pokemon's nature affect its EVs if at all? Sorry if I misinterpreted any of your information. I'm just trying to be semi-prepared. I skipped X & Y but I'm highly considering Alpha Sapphire which would retain many if not all the properties of those 2 games. I also never bothered much with natures/IVs/EVs in previous generations. I have done a little in egg moves and abilities, and passing a nature down seems easy enough. With more online interaction it seems more necessary to bother with breeding stronger pokemon, though when ORAS comes around I'm only going to semi worry about it despite the fact that many other people will be breeding perfect pokemon. I simply would not have the time to do so, and it am far too impatient anyway to completely care though I would to some extent.

Yes.

but they do not determine the stats? Or at least not affect it in some way?


... But no.

Right, at level 100. Lower level = different conversion.

Or a better question would be how does a pokemon's nature affect its EVs if at all?


No, but it does affect the stats gained from EVs (because its 10% bonus/penalty is applied to the stat formula after EVs are.)

Typically the result of hours, days - maybe even WEEKS of Hot Skitty on Wailord Action.

So if you have perfect ivs does that mean each stat has 31 ivs in it or all the stats have a portion or diffrent amount that would add up to 31?

IVs, or Individual Values, are hidden stats that every Pokemon has. They range from 0 to 31 in each stat,


Yes, it is possible for a Pokemon to have 186 IVs total (though it's really rare).
