Default Pokémon Diamond/Pearl/Platinum EV Guide

*Notice*
This is a guide on How to EV Train your Pokémon in Diamond/Pearl/Platinum. The guide was written by Eric Pelipper. You may not take or use this guide without permission from Eric Pelipper. The guide belongs to Floatzel.Net and my website, Generation Pokémon.

SECTION 1: Raising your Pokémon

Chapter 1: Nature & Stats
Capture more then one Pokémon, look for the nature you want. Read the information on what the nature + and what is -. Look for the highest stat that matches your nature.
  • Capture Several of one Pokémon
  • Check the nature
  • Look for the highest stat that matches up with the nature
Ex.Catch several Magmar. If the attack is high Fire Punch will be powerful. If the Sp. Attack is the highest stat moves like Flamethrower will be powerful.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 2: EV Battle Items
There are items that help raise and lower your Pokémon EVs. There are 6 items that raise your EVs, the max per item is 10 per stat. The EV + items are;
  • HP UP - HP EV
  • Protein - Attack EV
  • Iron - Defense EV
  • Calcium - Sp. Attack EV
  • Zinc - Sp. Defense EV
  • Carbos - Speed EV
There are 6 berries that lower the EVs. Those berries can be planted and grown[recommended]. These lower the EV that is being raised or any other EV.
EV -
  • Pomeg Berry - HP EV
  • Kelpsy Berry - Attack EV
  • Qualot Berry - Defense EV
  • Hondew Berry - Sp. Attack EV
  • Grepa Berry - Sp. Defense EV
  • Tamato Berry - Speed EV

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 3: Battling
There are many Pokémon you can battle to add EVs to your Pokémon. Below is a list of Pokémon and what EV they raise.
  • Bidoof/Shellos/Gastrodon/Quagsire/Grimer/Marill/Lickitung/Azumarill/Dewgong/Lapras - HP EV
  • Machop/Machoke/Scyther/Stantler/Bibarel/Bagon/Gyarados/Seaking - Attack EV
  • Geodude/Onix/Rhyhorn/Graveler/Steelix/Weezing/Skarmory/Torkoal/Magcargo/Koffing - Defense EV
  • Gastly/Gengar/Budew/Ralts/Roselia/Magnemite/Magmar/Gloom/Beautifly/Oddish/Natu - Sp. Attack EV
  • Tentacool/Tentacruel/Lotad/Lombre/Mr.Mime/Mantyke - Sp. Defense EV
  • Starly/Pichu/Pikachu/Staravia/Plusle/Minun/Meowth/Electabuzz/Floatzel/Wingul/Skitty/Fearow/Raticate/Spearow/Rattata - Speed EV
*NOTICE* All Pokémon locations will be added at the end of the EV Guide.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 4: EV Held Items
More EV Items can be obtained within the Diamond/Pearl/Platinum games. After obtaining a certain amount of Battle Points at the Battle Island you may buy the following held items to help raise your Pokémon EVs.
  • Macho Brace - More stat EVs
  • Power Weight - HP EV
  • Power Bracer - Attack EV
  • Power Belt - Defense EV
  • Power Lens - Sp. Attack EV
  • Power Band - Sp. Defense EV
  • Power Anklet - Speed EV
Ex.Macho Brace when held lowers the Speed of a Pokémon, but increases the Pokémon EVs.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Chapter 5: Move Set
Pokémon can only learn 4 moves. It is best to have both Physical and Special moves to be unpredictable. The best moves to have is moves that work against Pokémon you have a weakness to.
Ex.Lucario could know Force Palm & Aura Sphere, then the other 2 moves based on Lucario's weakness.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

SECTION 2: Mastering the Moves COMING SOON!

I would have written a shorter version, but I have been watching numerous EV Guide videos, reading up on GameFaqs and the Platinum Guide a bit, so I am going through all of my knowledge and posting it all, 5 sections.

I think the chapter is a little too brief. If I were you, I'd imagine myself writing a guide for people who absolutely have no idea about what EVs are.
But good effort, nonetheless.

This is the kind of thing I need for continuing to make my VGC team more powerful because it has a little more info than my books (ex:what pokemon raises whch stat). Good job Eric!

Yes, I was reading this imagining I didn't know about EV training, and it could use more info of what they really are. Unless you are intending to put this information in the reserved spots.

I would, but I think I might make a new topic on that due to the fact that you have taken the spot to reserve, but I could try to fix that into post one.

Read my reply to Shadow, I may put this info with the Nature Guide, but then I would probably need to rename the chapters/sections.

Looks quite simplistic, just how it should be.

Ya agree good job.

It's simpler then the way I do it during the first step, basically I hatch about 50 eggs and it's usually out of bad luck because it might take me a long time to get a good nature.
