    Lightbulb Poké Academy's Guide to EV Training and Hidden Abilities

    So looking around the web I have yet to find a guide that combines everything you can do while training into one guide. I for awhile was using vitamins and the super trainer to train my EVs because I did not feel like counting EVs. It cost me way too much money and then I found out that in Gen 6 your EVs can only go to 252 max and not 255 like in past generations, so that means if you are maxing out a stat in EVs you cannot go over so just go nuts.

    Some tips for EV training in hordes.

    Sweet Scent and Honey will spawn a Horde every time, unless it is raining. Also have your EXP. Share set to On and you can train every Pokémon in your party, which means you will need multiple Power Items. Also moves that hit multiple opponents at one time makes for a quicker battle. Moves like Surf will do this, but if you are out doing hordes and you see trees, boulders, grass, sand piles, etc in the background, you might as well be collecting items while training those EVs, so moves like Heat Wave, Rock Slide, Blizzard, Surf, Petal Blizzard, Twister, Air Cutter, Razor Leaf, Muddy Water, and Hyper Voice are good moves to invest in.

    Of course with EV training you are going to need supplies.

    Random Chance POKÉRUS has a 3 in 65,536 chance of being generated on a Pokémon, either wild or bred.
    After a Pokémon has POKÉRUS it can pass it to other Pokémon in your party during battles. It can only pass to Pokémon beside it in the party and neither Pokémon need to battle.

    POKÉRUS will not be able to be pass if you leave your Pokémon out of your box for 24 hours, so before midnight put it in a box to save your status condition. The effects of POKÉRUS will still be in effect, but will no longer be able to be passed.

    Now the effects of POKÉRUS, POKÉRUS will cause a Pokémon to gain double the EVs it normally would gain.
    Sweet Scent Select Pokémon The follow Pokémon can learn Sweet Scent by Level Up.
