Ruby, Sapphire & Emerald Emerald-specific Stuff: EV Training Spots |
You're great. You're fantastic. You're simply amazing. You're the best trainer ever to walk the humid soil that lies on Hoenn.

Or so they tell you.

You've managed to beat the Elite Four and the Champion with amazing skillz, excellent.

Now you go to the Battle Frontier, expecting all the trainers to crumble under your skill like matchsticks trying to hold a Snorlax up.

You go fight Greta, the Arena leader just to discover she thrashes you. Well no, she destroys you.

You wonder why your AMAZING Pokemon aren't good enough, you say you've trained them to a high level but you keep losing. You sit there and cry for hours and hours, until something in your mind lights up.

Didn't some chap called Rex say something about EV training in RSE? Oh yes! You think you yourself; you must do more of that! So after spending countless hours hatching eggs, and drugging up your Pokemon, you're ready to start EV training.

But where do you do your EV training?

You see, Emerald is an upgrade of RS, yes? With the upgrade, locations of some Pokemon have been changed, so now you need a list of places to EV train? Well, okay, I'll do one.

Attack: Remember the Shuppets in Mt. Pyre, they're still there; they give out 1 Attack EV each. Think that's bit slow? Head over to Meteorite falls where Solrocks will give you 2 EVs each. If you're really lucky, there will sometimes be an outbreak on Nuzleafs outside Meteorite falls which also give 2 EVs each. Route 120 houses Mightyenas, which give out 2. Also, on Route 117 (Daycare Centre route) Poochyena are pretty common, and give out 1 EV each.

Defense: Silcoon and Cascoon both give out 2, and are found commonly in Petalburg Forest. Head to the Magma Hideout where Torkals and Gravelers will give out 2 defense each! What's more, besides the one-defense Geodude, nothing else is there.

Speed: Ruby and Sapphire had the perfect place to EV train speed, outside Petleburg forest. But Emerald ruined it by removing most of the Speed giving Pokemon, and replacing it with Poocyenas. Be sad, very sad. Cry. Are you still crying? Good. I will tell you a suitable replacement. In Route 119 you will come across the farily common Lioone, they give out 2 speed EVs each. Or you could just be really clever and visit Artisans Cave in the Battle Frontier. The only mon you'll meet is the 1 Speed EV-giving Smeargle! Or failing that, go to New Mauville where you shall see many Voltorbs, who also give out one speed.

Special Attack: Spindas outside Fallarbor town, are extremely common and will give you 1 special attack EV each. Glooms in the tall grass outside Mt. Pyre will help you muchly. Additionally, Oddish are very common on Route 117 (Daycare Centre route), and give a decent amount of Exp along with 1 EV each.

Special Defence: Wild Tentacool and Tentacruel in the seas. Tentacools will give you 1, while Tentacruels give you two. Route 114 is another good place, with Lotads who give you one, and sometimes the rare Lombre who give out two.

HP: Marills in the body of water on Route 115 give out two.

A good tip if your desired training Pokemon is too weak: is to bring a strong Pokemon with you. First you send out the EV trainer, switch to the stronger Pokemon to knock the foe out. You still get the same amount of EVs.

After you've done, you should have a strong team. Now go to the Battle Frontier and (read: Try to) show the Battle Brains what you're made of!

Thanks to Rex for this! Aslo special thanks goes to Robovoir and TotalEclipse for other locations

Kyogre Fan on Sat 19 May 2007 03:59:52 EDT.
but what if you're trying to stay at lvl.50 for the battle frontier? you'll go up a lvl eventually, rendering you're pokemon useless!
b1g on Thu 19 Jul 2007 00:11:33 EDT.
use the open rank? o.o
Sizacu on Fri 20 Jul 2007 14:43:51 EDT.
Or use Vitamins? o.o;

Or just bash your own head in because you're too stupid not to use the cloning glitch to create a copy to keep at level 50 while you keep leveling up the other one? o.o

if you are training Sp.Atk the slugmas outside of fallarbor town are also fair game. slugmas and spindas are pretty much the only things out there so feel free to just smash a

um. so can you get like a torchik &&rare candy it tell it turns into blaziken, then give it nothing but protein for attack &&carbos for speed, then
ev train it for attack &&speed, it should be like umm, beast mode.? :D

On Pokemon Emerald there's the Altering Cave. You'll encounter only Zubats there! Perfect for EV training in Speed!

In the Rusturf Tunnel there are only Whismurs. Although they give you only 1 point in HP, it still can come in handy, especially if you want to start EV training your Pokemon on a low level.

i've found that fighting electrikes and manerics on route 118 in front of the berry master's house s good for speed ev training too.
millerray on Sat 18 Feb 2012 00:55:39 EST.
and linoones too
The5thburrito on Tue 11 Sep 2012 03:54:07 EDT.
look i know one thing... meteorite falls is awesome for attack and speed ev training since the only pokemon there are solrocks and golbats which give 2 evs each.
Guest on Sun 14 Sep 2014 11:40:48 EDT.
so the best option for me who wants to make two eevee's spec attack maxed would be to fight spinda over and over again...I think im going to just get a charizard and use my other game boy to create a trainer on sapphire that has nothing but a party of ditto's and use the charizard to gain 3 evs from transforming the dittos. Any one know if this would work?
Guest on Thu 18 Dec 2014 05:28:26 EST.
@Guest: It would work, if you have the patience to stack up on Dittos. Anyways, does the Macho Brace stack if you're going to use the EXP share on a weaker Pokémon until Ralts levels up to where she can fight Spindas on her own?
Guest on Thu 18 Dec 2014 15:07:43 EST.
I don't think you can do this with dittos, you need to gain experience in order to gain effort values, and you do not get experience from battling other real life trainers.

pokerus is really rare but i got it and spread it to all my pokemon. Now they're op.
Guest on Mon 26 Jan 2015 20:43:11 EST.
that's not how pokerus works it increases the ev yield that a pokemon gets not just make it op
Guest on Sun 15 Mar 2015 23:57:56 EDT.
For sp. attack training I would reccomend New Mauville. Magnemites give 1 each and Magnetons give two.
Guest on Thu 28 May 2015 13:53:53 EDT.
I have Pokemon Sapphire how can i EV train with Solrock? Because in Sapphire you dont encounter Solrock only Lunatone. Does it also works with Lunatone?
