Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Are their any significant attributes between level matches such as 50 v 50 or 100 v 100?

I know that in little cup you need a lot of EVs to raise a stat. I'm asking about if the 8 EVs required to raise a stat have any significance in a 50 v 50 competive.

For example, how many EVs would a level 50 metagross require to 0HKO a level 50 Tyranitar with hammer arm if tyranitar has 0 Defense EVs and metagross uses hammer arm?

I'd love to be the guy figuring this out. Technically this question is too broad to be allowed xP

Here is the calcs for a Lv. 100 Metagross' Hammer Arm versus a Lv. 100 Tyranitar:

252+ Atk Metagross Hammer Arm vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Tyranitar: 452-536 (132.1 - 156.7%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Here is the calcs for a Lv. 50 Metagross' Hammer Arm versus a Lv. 100 Tyranitar:

252+ Atk Metagross Hammer Arm vs. 4 HP / 0 Def Tyranitar: 240-284 (136.3 - 161.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO

As the calculations show, the damage difference between two identical Pokémon levels 50 and 100 is virtually nil. There is a 5% difference between two nearly identical layouts. This leads us to conclude that the damage output at Lv. 50 is simply the same as the damage output at Lv. 100. The reason Little Cup Pokémon need so many EVs is because they are Lv. 5, meaning that they can take advantage of complicated spreads better than their higher-tier counterparts.

Here are some further calcs to demonstrate the level 50/100 damage correletions:

Porygon-Z vs. Rotom-Mow: Level 100

252+ SpA Choice Specs Adaptability Porygon-Z Tri Attack vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Rotom-C: 278-328 (115.3 - 136%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Porygon-Z vs. Rotom-Mow: Level 50

252+ SpA Choice Specs Adaptability Porygon-Z Tri Attack vs. 0 HP / 4 SpD Rotom-C: 146-172 (116.8 - 137.6%) -- guaranteed OHKO

Palkia vs. Kyogre: Level 100

252 SpA Palkia Thunder vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Kyogre: 200-236 (58.4 - 69%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

Palkia vs. Kyogre: Level 50

252 SpA Palkia Thunder vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Kyogre: 106-126 (60.2 - 71.5%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

To calculate more, use the Smogon Damage Calculator and set the levels to 50.
