Let's get started!
EV UNIT 1
What is an "EV"?
EV stands for “Effort Value.” They determine what stats your Pokemon gets upon leveling up and are gained from battling any Pokemon you come across in the wild.
How do EVs affect stats?
For every 4 EVs you gain in a specific stat, you'll gain +1 to your Pokemon's base value in that stat
Is there a limit to the amount of EVs I can give my Pokemon?
There are two limits to the amount of EVs a Pokemon can gain. Each Pokemon can have a maximum of 510 EVs. One stat can have a maximum of 255 EVs. (Rule 252 is HIGHLY suggested as other 3 EVs are worthless)
When is the best time to start EV training a Pokemon?
The best time to start EV training is as soon as you get that Pokémon, either through breeding or catching it. As soon as that Pokémon participates in a battle in which it gains experience, it will have gained some EVs.
EV & IV UNIT 2
IV's and EV's are completely different!
EV stands for “Effort Value.” They determine what stats your Pokémon gets upon levelling up and are gained from battling any Pokémon you come across that award Experience points. For every 4 EVs you gain in a specific stat, you'll gain +1 to your Pokemon's base value in that stat. EVs are calculated at +1 Stat point per 4 EVs at level 100, which means you won't see the full benefit of the EVs you put into your Pokémon until it reaches that level; there will still be a benefit, just not as significant as when it reaches the maximum level.
Every stat has an IV ranging from 0 to 31 for each stat (HP, ATK, DEF, SPA, SPD, and SPE), and at level 100, their IVs are added to the Pokémon's stats for their total values. For example, a level 100 Tyranitar with no Effort Values and 0 IVs has 310 HP, however if it had 31 IVs, it would have 341 HP
EV TRAINING TIPS UNIT 3
You can often max out the EVs by level 20, which leaves the Pokemon free for use in-game; it will also be stronger than normal.
Spread EVs out a little.
Many guides you will see will tell you to max out your EVs in two stats (e.g. Attack and Speed) and forget about the rest. But this can leave some vulnerabilites.
With Speed, you're not going to be able to out-run everyone (and you don't need to), so try saving some EVs for other stats.
Maximize HP×Def and/or HP×SpDef.
The damage your Pokémon takes is directly proportional to the product of HP and the appropriate Defense stat. Therefore with defensive EV spreads you should put more EVs into the lower stat. Snorlax, for example, has a high HP and so-so Defense, so putting more EVs into Defense than HP will result in a higher overall defense.
