Is a 510 HP a good EV spread for my Crobat?

0 votes

After you think about it, HP is like both Defenses in one. So, would it be good to do all out HP? Or, maybe I could do 340 HP and 170 Attack, since my moveset is Physical.
So, which one is better,

  1. 510 HP
  2. 370 HP/170 Attack

1 or 2?

Any stat can only have a maximum of 255 EVs, and since EV boosts are only seen every 4 EV points, you can only train it up to 252 EVs (the next 3 EVs will be wasted).

Crobat is frail anyway, but what it does have is good speed and decent attack, so the EV spread recommended for it competitively would be this set:

Crobat @ Flying Gem
Ability: Inner Focus
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly/ Adamant (would be best)
- Acrobatics
- Cross Poison/ Taunt
- Roost
- U-Turn

I didn't recommend Brave Bird since that's an egg move and needs to be bred onto a Zubat.

lol I forgot... btw I hate Brave Bird... Thanks!
With those stats you can be sure to land a strong hit early and not worry about a counter-attack.  Offensive thinking as opposed to defensive.

You can't do 1 or 2 it is not even possible, you cant go higher than 255 EV's on one stat.
