    Catching up on older episodes. Have you read the web comic super effective? So many jokes on Brock. I am sorry to see him go. I wonder though how many nurse joys are there in the Pokemon world? When I train I check how many evolutions there are and check how powerful they become. I love having three evolutions. I do EV train with the poke-virus but I don't pay attention to the specifics of ev's. I love the poke-virus I got it back in my sapphire and moved it around to all my games. I always train in high level areas using exp. share. I stooped doing the elite 4 because in the new games later areas have better pokemon to battle against. I grow really attached to many of my pokemon, that's why I have tones of team boxes. When I have trouble ev training I just use the stat supplements, works a ton faster, if you don't have the poke-virus that is. I dont pay attention to nature though, I think its a cool idea that changes it a bit. OMG Ploywrath! I still prefer Polytoad, he is cute and powerful. I hated that time issue. It was the start of the modern hating on pokemon. Being Canadian I don't know what pokemon I would want to claim, definately not Bidoof, or Bibarel. Don't give into the trading card game, stick with the games. No one when I was little played we just collected them. Go Deathcoffin! Anyways on to listening to the rest!

    Just wanted to say that there is a pokemon ev training app for the iphone. It seems like the best one is called "Pokemon EV Training Helper" but it does seem like there are others.

    I'm gonna be honest and admit that while I do ev train, I use cheating devices in order to do it faster. I would generate things like lvl 1 Machamps to get 6 ev points in atk. I like battling but I hate the tedium of training. Also I don't do stuff like max ivs, that's too much cheating. I tend to train lesser used pokemon like Persian and Dodrio. I think using the weaker guys are funner than having like 6 legendaries on a team.

    EV training is easy. Infact right now I'm EV training an Infernape for the Gym leader Challenge in the Forums.
  • Robusken - July 8, 2010 2:42 p.m.

    @Phazon117- Yes! Thats the exact app I have, I should read the comment before ...commenting.
  • Robusken - July 8, 2010 2:39 p.m.

    Yes I do EV train. Yes it looks like one of the most confusing things, once you get into it though its pretty simple. I also do have a notebook where I do all my team planning and training notes. Its under my bed somewhere...As for a pokedex app, there isnt one for EVs but theres a really specific pokedex one. I rushed to buy an Ipod touch after my friend showed it to me.

    When I pick out my party, I usually go for multi-type Pokemon with the least weaknesses like Spiritomb and Kingdra. But in terms of actual training, it's spooky how similar I am to Carolyn. I just finished EV Training my first entire party (off the cusp of a break-up), having planned out each and every Pokemon's moveset and primary EVs before even catching them. From there, I carry around dedicated sheets for each Pokemon's EVs, since I only train one at a time, counting in tallies of four. And I've got most of the common EV givers memorized by now. The only drawback, though, is that I didn't bother taking a look at each Pokemon's base stats before starting, and now my party is just a little less awesome than it could be. But hey, I'm starting to get attached to the critters.
  • Phazon117 - July 7, 2010 3:36 a.m.

    Also, sorry for the double post, but I do agree with Carolyn's philosophy of Pokemon play.
  • Phazon117 - July 7, 2010 3:35 a.m.

    I EV train quite a bit, I mean, I have to have the best possible Pokemon I can have. I also IV train. @Carolyn - There are really good Pokemon apps for iPhones. The best one, imo, is 'AAA Pokedex', which is $2. Kiss those papers goodbye!

    I EV train. It's daunting at first, but becomes quite easy with the help of the Power items. I only got into it in the last year or so. I've never understood IV breeding at all though, so I don't bother with that. So there's my tip, Power items. That and, a very in-depth and helpful Pokemon fansite. Oh, and notes are absolutely essential, because if you're EV training, you have to be fairly exact with the numbers.
  • irishthunder - July 6, 2010 5:25 p.m.

    don't worry Carolyn you are not the only one with that problem i forget if i've counted ev's when i am training as well, its because its just so boring and tedious, but in the end its all worth it!
  • VictorRay - July 6, 2010 5:12 p.m.

    I try to EV train, but then get sort've bored. As for IV training, I've never even attempted that. has anyone ever gotten the pokemon virus?
  • philipshaw - July 6, 2010 5:10 p.m.

  • GreenLikesGreen - July 6, 2010 4:35 p.m.

    EV training is sooooo worth it, i always do it and it doesn't take much time.... and i've actually found 2 shiny's while ev training in platinum :D also, ralts and wurmple don't like you
  • shyfonzie - July 6, 2010 2:37 p.m.

    The ruins of Alph are great for EV training. 1 attack and 1 Special Attack for a bunch of lv. 5 pokemon that know one move.
  • JayBeat - July 6, 2010 1:17 p.m.

    I don't EV train, to me it stops being fun and starts being a chore, like a lot of people have mentioned; but it seems to be rewarding for the more serious people.
  • IChooseUAntistaMON - July 6, 2010 9:44 a.m.

    Oh also i EV train after u beat the game
  • IChooseUAntistaMON - July 6, 2010 9:41 a.m.

    Two things why is this never on iTunes until later like tuesday. Also it should be called PokeMonday
  • Crabhand - July 6, 2010 5:42 a.m.

    EV training is a pain to get used to, but super easy and fun once you understand it completely. I had a Pokémon infected with the Pokérus the other day and I was ecstatic, really speeds things up.
