Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Is EV training worth it if you're not doing competitive, and only doing wifi and ingame?

When I asked my rate my teams, people kept bugging me to put the Pokemons' evs in.
I get that and EV trained Pokemon will be stronger than a non-EVed one, but since I don't do competitive, is it really worth it?

If you're posting on Battle Subway, you shouldn't be posting in-game teams, unless you're posting for something like the Battle Subway in Gen V games.
What the **** fondant, here's the link to my RMTs they're for wifi battling, and i'm just using to the Elite Four to train my team.

Let me have a crack at this :D

Wi-fi.

On Wi-Fi I think that it is worth it. Mainly because it allows you to outdo many of your opponents that do not use EVs, using your increased stats to decimate most Wi-fi battlers out there. however you can still be moderately successful without using them, so t's up to you to choose that one for yourself.

In-game

No, it is not worth it. To be successful ingame, all you need is to not share to many weaknesses and have a few different types to counter whatever you need to. Otherwise, there is no reason too as to beat enemy's you just need to grind those levels more. EV training isn't that important, and most likely you will pretty much be adding EVs onto Pokemon anyway as you fight constantly different Pokemon.

Hope I helped :D
