i also considered swapping Metagross for Dialga.
EVs for Excadrill and Hippo are off.
EV spreads for Metagross, Forretress, Excadrill, and Hippowdon are illegal.
You are missing 10 EVs on Terrakion, and you are wasting 2 EVs on the HP.
so why are certain EV spreads illegal anyway???
Because you have more than 510 EVs
ugh got dang it Bobby....i an never workin two 12 hour shifts in a row followed by a 10 hr shift...   soooo glad im off tomorrow...... apparently i can't count afterwards xP
