    Wooo! I got my 2 Fire red teams into SS.

    I am sooooooo very glad I don't need to spend hours getting the coins for Porygon again, oh and Scyther, Kabutops, Charizard, Raichu, and Persian!

    operation breed for elite 4 is going without a hitch! everything has hatched, i'm now starting to delve into ev training and stuff

    looks daunting

    especially cause i don't have any pokerus or power items; although scratch that i might have pokerus on my diamond cart and i could transfer that over

    still not interested in iv's yet considering i don't think there's an easy way for me to check without wifi

    overkill for the story mode hell yea!

    from what i've heard anecdotally

    no they are easy apparently

    but my team didn't have good enough type coverage

    so i'm now making it an excuse to get done with my urge to breed a team i've been having

    Gold/Silver elite four were the silliest of easy geese.


    I think Lance's strongest pokemon was like 49. (Old G/S/C)

    I don't understand the Block system in the safari zone.

    Do I have to put blocks in Area A to attract new pokemon to area B?

    alright

    so if my tyrogue's attack has to be lower than his defense to evolve into a hitmonchan

    wouldn't it be really hard for me to make an adamant hitmonchan?

    or am i missing something here

    EVs balance out the nature. Train up your tyrogue against geodudes and you should be fine.
    There is also a chance that the tyrogue's IVs will counteract the EVs if it has like, a 31 Atk and 0 Def IV...but that's really unlikely.

    I did it three times.

    first time it I didn't realize it was increase attack, lower defense.
    Second time it didn't get the ability I wanted.
    Third time was the charm.

    yeah but what if my EV training doesn't want EV's in defense? i haven't planned that out yet, but is that the only way? i mean i'll do it because having a hitmonchan is more important than having a perfect EV set, but it would be nice to dictate it totally and not have to spend some in defense

    i feel so dumb at pokemon for once

    edit: oh woops didn't see the rest of the replies

    so where would I get these berries? can i get them if i only have hg/ss? or would i have to find them somehow in diamond

    there are berries that actually lower the evs of a pokemon, like anti-vitamins

    so after your evolve your hitmonchan just feed it a bunch of qualot berries and you're done

    edit: qualot berries are only in d/p/pl which is weird because some of the other ev lowering ones are in hgss

    Don't want to inconvenience you, I'll just hatch it myself. I have an extra Swift Swim Modest Lotad, if you want one. E: it has a 31 speed IV, too.
