Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

When does your starter begin gaining EVs?

0 votes

I was lucky enough to get good IVs on my starter Pokemon with the right nature and all.
In the beginning of Pearl, you and your friend get attacked by a Starly so I was wondering, does that Starly give your starter EVs or do the EV points start accumulating after this event?

The EV training starts from the Starly, as the attacking Starly is considered a wild Pokemon. So, Starly will give out 1 Speed EV. However, you can just keep count of the EVs and use EV reducing berries after you've finished the game. Or, just deposit it into the box and train it after you've finished the game with other Pokemon, as EV training for in game purposes isn't worth it.

Hope I helped :)

Are commas so important semp? :P
Punctuation is important to me. You learn to use commas and full stops for a reason, and it isn't so you can not use them.
Have some pride and punctuate your answers.
Your starter first gets EVs when it battles a Pokemon just like always.
