    Ok guys I have been pretty busy because Christmas is coming up so soon, first year in our new house and relatives are coming over so yeah we have stuff to do. I will edit it when I have more consecutive free time and I'll make sure I fix my grammatical errors.

    I'll see what I can do about the overall tone but does anyone else see as issue with it? I mean from what I can tell its pretty informative and for the most part, gramatically correct.

    You should also say in th attacki EVs section that Gyarados are found in Twinleaf town too with teh Super Rod. You should also say Seeaking can be found with the Super Rod.

    EDIT:

    western. Challenge. Raticates. Andrew.

    small, little. Surf. Gengar.

    A few other places I've noted to do EV training.

    Eterna Forest is good for Defense if you've got FireRed or LeafGreen in your second slot, as both Metapod/Kakuna and Silcoon/Cascoon give 2 def EVs.

    Route 227 is also nice for Defense EVs, with Graveler, Skarmory, and Weezing giving 2 and Rhyhorn giving 1.

    Route 225 can be good for speed with both Raticate and Fearow (who give 2 EVs).

    When EV'ing for attack you can also go to Route 209 and chain some Machops. I recommend that only for the people who are good at chaining, because 50% of the time are Geodudes which are annoying.

    When I train for speed, I always go into Victory Road (using Rock Climb and Surf) and on the way to where Shayman's Rock is, there is some water that you can Surf on inside of the cave. Golbat appears 100% of the time (2 Speed EVs each)

    Dr. Mudkip, What can I say, nice Guide, however I recommend adding in Alt. EV locations for Pokes that cannot beat others. For example trying to EV train a Torkoal in Attack won't work in Twinleaf as Gyra and Seaking both rape him throughly.

    I suggest adding in the level ranges of the pokes you find in those locations, and offer lower or higher level locations for those with higher level pokes with the need of EV training. EV training new hatches can be a pain when they only thing they can beat is Bidoof's e.t.c

    Also Quick Question, I heard that if you have an Exp. Share on a poke, they also gain EV's? Is this true?

    The Pokémon with the EXP. Share gets the regular amount of EVs from the Pokémon defeated. PokéRus and Power Items/Macho Brace won't be passed on. So if the Pokémon you beat only gave 1 EV, and the Pokémon you beat it with had a Power Item and PokéRus, your Pokémon with the EXP. Share would still get 1 EV.

    Nice article, quite useful to me since I only started EV training recently.

    One thing you could add in is that when EV training you might want to turn battle animations off to speed through the training quicker.

    Forgive me if this has already been mentioned but about PokeRUS... When your Pokemon is active with PokeRUS, it -is- contagious and can spread it to other members of your party. However, I remember reading somewhere that even if it has passive PokeRUS (the PokeRUS icon changes to a smiley face looking symbol), it's not contagious but the effects of PokeRUS still affect that one Pokemon.

    I've heard that on cycling road, third trainer from the top there's a guy with two Staraptor (6 Atk EV's) The catch is that on some games (Mine ;_; ) he has two staravia instead. (dead serious...)

    Anyway, just an alternate option if you're EVing something relying on Ice Beams or something...

    I'm quite sure that Palmer's Milotic has Dragon Pulse, not Ice Beam. That said, this means you can safely lead with Garchomp against Palmer. Dragon Pulse doesn't OHKO Chomp, but Outrage will be a 2HKO on Milotic. Trust me, I speak from experience.

    But I doubt this information will be of much consequence anyway, since this isn't a Battle Tower Guide.

    The Tycoon's Milotic has a different move...Dragon Pulse. It ripped through my unexpecting Salamence...

    Just a small note, but in Pastoria, Tentacool aren't 100%. Many times you will find Wingull, and also an occasional Tentacruel.

    Looks as if there could be some nitpicks done to this guide (encounter rate fixes, and it looks as if one of the movesets is wrong). I don't think it's ready to be htmlized until someone who has a wealthy knowledge of ingame proofreads this.

    Just a small thing about cornflake's comment a while ago - if you hold Alt Gr and then press any of the vowels, it will appear like this:

    áéíóú

    Just a small tip for the future.

    In the Pastoria Pool, you can also find Wingull (1 Speed EV) and Pelipper (2 Defence EVs)

    If you would like, I can incorprate all of the suggestion into this guide so it can be HTMLized.

    Edit: Ok ghandi

    For HP in Pokémon Platinum, the two Tubers on Route 203 give 3 HP EVs (Azumarril) and 3-6 HP EVs (three Shellos/Gastrodon) respectively. One of them is named Tuber Jared, but I cannot remember the name of the other Tuber. They're right next to a healing location (the booked hotel) and they're right next to each other, making HP training pretty easy.
