Emerald EV lowering berries not working?

  • Emerald EV lowering berries not working? corroded

    I am EV training my lv 45 gyarados so I'm trying to reset (or at the very least estimating how much it has). According to the ribbon girl, it had full EVs already (gave me the effort ribbon) so I started giving it my newly harvested berries.

    According to a guide I read (serebii.net), it takes a max of 11 berries to reset your EVs (if your EV is over 100 in a stat, the first berry lowers it down to 100, then 10 every time so 252 EVS will first lower to 100, then 10 every time, making it a total of 11 berries per stat).

    I tried this idea to count the EVs of my gyarados and these were the results:

    • hp - 80 (8 berries)
    • at - 90 (9 berries)
    • def - 50 (5 berries)
    • spa - 100 (10 berries)
    • spdef - 60 (6 berries)
    • speed - 160?! <-- 16 berries

    Yeah, I was amazed that my gyarados kept eating and lowering down its speed even after 12 berries and went on to 16. I tried to compute the speed EVs depending on its other stat EVs and adding them all up means the speed could have had a max of 130, which makes the 16 berries still way over. How could this have happened? Am I missing something important here?

  • In Pokemon Emerald, each berry lowers EVs by 10. It wasn't until Generation IV (Diamond/Pearl) when the mechanic changed and the first berry reduced EVs to 100. So in theory, Gyarados could scoff 26 of those berries before it gets full ;)

  • Do the berries that lower 10 EVs each also lower your stat points? For example, let's say a lv 90 Gyarados eats 11 Kelpsy berries to lower its attack EVs. Will its attack actually lower down(assuming it had some EVs on attack) iF it doesn't, is it possible to keep "resetting" your pokemon's EV's then retraining them back again?

  • I have minecraft server with a bunch of mods: here the list. The thing is after I explored a big part of world my server began to lag (before that server worked good). When I replaced world with old version of the same world (before exploration and with the same set of mods) lags disappeared. So, I think, I found something in the world that causes lags. How can I find that lagging region and remove the source of lag (kill problem mob, for example, regenerate region)? This is what I get in console when server starts to lag: 16:24:11 [WARNING] The server is going slow. Last server tick

  • In previous generations, EVs only took effect upon level up, meaning that a level 100 Pokemon was stuck with the EVs you had previously trained it with. With the edition of Super Training, and specifically, 'Reset Bags', you can re-spec your EVs at any time. But do these new EVs still only take effect upon level up? Say I have a Gardevoir with mixed EVs on level 100, and I want to respec them into Special Attack & Speed for example, is this now possible? or will Resetting & Reapplying do nothing?

  • . Does my swing speed have any impact on the distance in this game? I know it is part of learning the clubs but I want to make sure I have the theory down correctly first. ... 65% Club: 7 iron Aim Marker: Right on the hole and it says 87% Again if my understanding is the bottom of the swing is 100% and that number is 140yds, 87% of that would be about 120. So am I 120...I just got Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 for my IPod.

  • I already know that the max EV points a pokemon gets is 510, and that the max for a stat is 252 so you get 252 for 2 stats and 6 on another. Question is, how do I know if I maxed out a stat already?(Im using emerald by the way) so does the Ribbon girl give you a ribbon if you have 510 or if one of your stats as 255? How do I know when to EV train the other stat?

  • As a strategic motive, I would like to speed up less, but I don't know how running velocity is calculated? Is it fixed to the meters run, so not much can be done about it? Or to coins, so I could collect less coins if my primary goal was to maximize distance or score? Or is the speed caused by your score, or perhaps something else altogether? P.S. Found some helpful tips on how to temporarily slow down here: Does anything slow down or reset running speed?

  • I've read a lot about EV training, and from what I understand, every 4 EV points will give you 1 stat point from the EV (say, 4 EV points in Speed will give me 1 Speed stat point when I level up). Let's say I have a level 70 Gyarados, feed him all the EV-resetting berries, then battle lots of level 4 Poochyena or some other Pok√©mon to raise my Attack EVs. Of course, even if I max out his Attack EVs, he won't be able to level up with that little amount of EXP, so when he does finally level up, will I see HP + 3, Attack + 65, etc. or something?

  • I've decided to look into EV training to make my Pokemon stronger in a competitive battle. I know about how to train EVs, using items such as Macho Brace or Power Bracer etc, but I was wondering what routes/caves/surf areas/other places were best for each specific EV stat. My version is Pokemon Black, and I've beaten the Elite 4 and Alder and have access to all areas of the game. I know that on Route 1, all you can find are Lillipup and Patrat, both of which give +1 Attack EV. That makes for a 100% chance to get +1 Attack EVs per kill. I also know that in the cave beside Route 3, all
