    I would try messaging the mods directly instead of posting about it here so they're more likely to see it. I'm not sure where you'd post about it on Smogon.

    EV spreading for level 50 means I need to distribute evs in 3 or 5 stats to not prevent having 4 evs left over?

    What are viable items for vikavolt and Arcanine? I was thinking iapapa berry and sitrus berry respectively, but I would like other ideas. I already have two z moves on the team.

    Those two items both work well on the respective 'mons. The question you should be asking yourself is whether or not it fits well given the context of the rest of your team. Other items you can consider for the two include but are not limited to: Assault Vest, Choice Specs (I'm not sure about this one), Sitrus Berry (instead of having it on Arcanine), and Life Orb on Vikavolt; other 50% berries like Aguav Berry, Life Orb (eh), Safety Goggles (in most cases I wouldn't recommend it, but it makes facing Torkoal/Lilligant teams easier if you find yourself having trouble with it) on Arcanine. Firium Z could work on Arcanine, though you already have two Z-moves on the team so it's probably not optimal to run three it can still be something to think about if you're working on your team and find that the other Z-moves aren't a great fit or something.

    I know that Grassy Terrain decreases damage from Earthquake, but does it decrease damage from a Earthquake-based Z-Move?
