Pokemon World Online 1.95.3
Hello, Pokemaniacs! We hope you are having a pleasant day. This post is to announce the addition of yet another much awaited feature: Effort Values!
*For those of you already familiar with the system, enjoy! Items like vitamins are not in yet, but they will be added soon once the bare-bones system is tested publicly.
For those who are unfamiliar with this aspect of the Pokemon world, here are answers to some FAQs about EVs:
[i]";What are EVs?";[/i] Effort values, or EVs for short, are bonuses gained by a Pok�mon from engaging in a battle and defeating its opponent no matter how strong or weak it was. In other words, EVs are affected by how you train your Pok�mon. *There are also items that can affect EVs, these are supported. They will be available in the near future, however!
[i]";How do EVs affect a Pok�mon?";[/i] - EV points in each stat are used to calculate the current value of the stat along with its IVs and nature boosts. - Whenever a Pok�mon defeats its opponent in a battle, the new value of each stat is calculated using the newest EV points corresponding to that stat divided by 4. - This helps your Pok�mon to become stronger *or more specialized in battles.
[i]";How can a Pok�mon gain EVs?";[/i] - When you catch a Pok�mon for the first time, it will have 0 EVs in all its stats. - EV points are added to the Pok�mon's stat after the battle or when the Pok�mon levels up during the battle. - Each Pok�mon species will yield different EV points in different stats, but each species may add from 0 to 3 EV points to each stat. - Your Pok�mon can have a maximum of 255 EV points in each stat with maximum of 510 EV points in all stats; that means you cannot not have a Pok�mon with max EV points in all stats, so you may need to train your Pok�mon wisely. - When the EV points are divided by 4, the remainder will be disregarded, so you just need 252 EV points to get the same effect as max stat. - There are also items that can make your Pok�mon gain or lose EVs, but these are not supported yet. However, they will be in the near future! - It�s important to note that even if your Pok�mon is at the highest level, it can still gain or lose EVs.
[i]";Where can I see my Pok�mon�s current EVs?";[/i] It�s the same as seeing its stats or IVs - just hover over the Pok�mon, and its information menu will pop up automatically. This includes the chat channels and trade windows. When you see that an EV stat is red, it means that your Pok�mon has reached the max amount of EVs.
