At the top end of Route 210 (east of Celestic Town), you'll find Bibarel (2 EVs), Machop (1 EV), Machoke (2 EVs) and Scyther (1 EV). You can also get Bagon (1 EV) with the PokeRadar and Zangoose (2 EVs) with Ruby in the GBA slot.


Surf on Route 42 to find Goldeen (1 EV) and Seaking (2 EVs).

Well, in my SS, I LUCKILY Got the Pokerus and trained my Sceptile to have excellent attack on wild Seakings in the water in Mt. Silver. My Sceptiles' attack goes up 4 points every lvl which is awesome. So if you have the pokerus in any of your games, you could trade or migrate them and get double the evs to get extra strong stats!
