Going to make a 6v6 team and want a defensive Sylveon that can still pack something a punch (hoping to acquire a hyper voice,) but I'm not exactly sure what nature/EV spread to use.

I'm assuming full HP EV's, but should I split the def/sp def EV's or go with one or the other? My team will have a separate physical wall, but I feel making Sylveon pure Sp. Def hampers its ability to take out dragon and fighting types.

Should I go...

252 HP/252 Def

252 HP/252 Sp. Def

252 HP/Some combination of Def and Sp. Def.

252 HP/252 Def but with an assault vest for the Sp. Def boost.

And bold or calm?

Thanks for any help!

HP & Sp Def. That thing ain't taking no physical hits even with max def.
I wouldn't just call the police, I would call the police.

It has the same defense as Florges and even more HP. It can take physical hits quite well, and from my experience using Florges, I heavily suggest HP/Def over HP/SpDef.

Steel types are the best!

No it doesn't LOL. 251 def. 394 sp def. It's not meant to take physical hits just like how Gliscor isn't meant to take special hits. But to each his own I suppose.

imo trying to build it both ways feels like a mistake
Either stick with HP and SpD or HP and SpA

252 Atk Garchomp Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Sylveon: 154-183 (39 - 46.4%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

You know there's something wrong if a pokemon with "weak" defense is 3HKOd by Garchomp's Earthquake.

Oh...SE?

252 Atk Garchomp Iron Head vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Sylveon: 166-196 (42.1 - 49.7%) -- guaranteed 3HKO after Leftovers recovery

Nope,it has pretty decent Def.

Serperior and Porygon-Z is better than any of your opinions.
