Steroids? No just candy. Rare candy... Pokemon's alternative to steroids.. Actually, using rare candies instead of battling other Pokemon to level makes your pokemon weaker. It depends on Effort Values. Pokemon

Although this is for first gen, who cares about effort values?

I only recently learned about them too, but I still have no ******* idea how they work.

Four Effort Points (EP) equals one actual point in that stat.
You get 1-3 EP for each pokemon you defeat, usually in one stat, but some give in more than one stat.

For example, Lucario gives 1 Special Attack and 1 Attack EP, so defeating four Lucarios gives a total of 4 Special Attack and 4 Attack EP. Since 4 EP gives one more in a stat, you get 1 more Attack and 1 more Special Attack in total.

You can only get a total of 510 EP, and only 255 EP in one stat. This adds up to a total of 63 more in a single stat if you max out the EP in one stat.

I'm sorry if it's confusing, feel free to ask if there's anything more you'd like to know. (If you even wanted to know in the first place :V )

I appreciate the effort, and for it you get a thumb, but no amount of explanation will ever allow me to understand any of it.

zubat gives 1 speed effort point killing 4 of them will give you 1 extra speed point at level 100 so killing 50*4 zubats will give you 50 exra speed at level 100 I'm sure you can understand it
User avatar #44 to #39 - messerauditore (03/01/2013) [-]
I've already made it clear I don't care.
User avatar #45 to #44 - drulludanni (03/01/2013) [-]
ah i mistook it as if you werent able to understand it. So you are just not willing to understand it?
User avatar #46 to #45 - messerauditore (03/01/2013) [-]
I don't understand it, but I have no need as I just play for the story of pokemon games.
User avatar #30 to #28 - garaichu ONLINE (03/01/2013) [-]
Glad I could help I guess.
If you ever wanna know more, just ask and I'll do my best to explain it.
User avatar #43 to #27 - daentraya (03/01/2013) [-]
That actually makes sense now

Actually, it doesn't make them weaker, unless you use like 50 rare candies on one pokemon so they don't have time to gain the effort values.

Also, in gen 5 Pokemon's effort values are added after battle instead of after level up, so a level 100 can still use the EVs it gains.

Remember Sun-Baby from Teletubbies? I just realised, it's their God.
Sun-Baby watches over them but why is it always laughing? You see it created the Tele-Verse and The Teletubbies. They live freely and happily but everyday when that Sun-Baby rises up, it's not laughing because it's happy to see it's creation at work, no, Sun-Baby is plotting their destruction. They have sinned and gone against the Tele-Bible. Tinky-Winky was gay, an affront to Sun-Baby God, it clearly states that in the Tele-Bible. They ignored Sun-Baby, forgetting it was what forged their existence. Sun-Baby was angered and destroyed the Tele-Verse. This is what happens when you ignore our God. Do you want to end up like the Teletubbies? PRAISE GOD!
Teletubby Apocalypse, it happened. It was a full on Tele-Caust, it was brutal. You try to deny it but we all know what happened.
DAMN YOU SUN-BABY AND YOUR SADISTIC TUBBY SLAUGHTERING! HOW CAN YOU SMILE ABOUT THIS? DO YOU HAVE NO SOUL SUN-BABY!
