This is from the infamous "Help Thread" I made before. Let it be forever remembered. Natures: Increase a stat by 10% and decrease another stat by 10%. Adamant- Increase Atk, Decrease SpAtk Brave- Increase Atk, Decrease Spe Lonely- Increase Atk, Decrease Def Naughty- Increase Atk, Decrease SpDef Bold- Increase Def, Decrease Atk Impish- Increase Def, Decrease SpAtk Relaxed- Increase Def, Decrease Spe Lax- Increase Def, Decrease SpDef Modest- Increase SpAtk, Decrease Atk Quiet- Increase SpAtk, Decrease Spe Mild- Increase SpAtk, Decrease Def Rash- Increase SpAtk, Decrease SpDef Calm- Increase Sp Def, Decrease Atk Careful- Increase SpDef, Decrease SpAtk Sassy- Increase SpDef, Decrease Spe Gentle- Increase SpDef, Decrease Def Timid- Increase Spe, Decrease Atk Jolly- Increase Spe, Decrease SpAtk Hasty- Increase Spe, Decrease Def Naive- Increase Spe, Decrease SpDef Bashful- neutral Docile- neutral Hardy- neutral Quriky- neutral Serious- neutral Everstone Trick = Give a Female Poke'mon or a Ditto an everstone in the daycare. And it shall have a high chance of passing the poke'mon's nature. This trick doesn't work all the time. I believe it has a 50% chance of passing on the nature. This is extremely useful for breeding correct natures. Effort Values (EV's) = Points that are gained when training a poke'mon. There is a total of 510 per poke'mon. 255 is the max in a stat. 252 is required to max out a stat. Only 2 stats can be maxed out. If you do the math correctly, 6 EV points are leftover when you max out 2 stats. Tier Rankings: Uber: Banned poke'mon from Standard Competitions. OverUsed (OU): Most commonly used poke'mon. BorderLine (BL): Poke'mon whose power is shifted between two ranks. UnderUsed (UU): Poke'mon that are not strong enough to be in OU. NeverUsed (NU): Poke'mon that are not meant to be in battle too much. EV TRAINING GUIDE: Hp = Cowgirl South of Solaceon. She has 5 Bidoofs.
