I know what EV training is, and I have EV trained quite a few pokemon, most notably my February event Mewtwo, who has a special attack stat of 406 (no, I'm not lying). But all his other stats (aside from speed, the other stat I maxed, somewhere in the high 300's range) are really kind of bad. Because I put all those EV's into Speed and Special attack, his defense and special defense are very low, and any strong hit will wipe him out (his main defense is hitting first and not being hit, which works fine until my brother pulls out his Arceus).
So should I EV train my Nationals team and max out 2 stats, or should I just level them up the old fashioned way (any trainer willing to fight me) and let them get fairly balanced stats?

I reccomend checking the Smogon OU/Uber tier list (Uber because they have their tiers based on their Pokemon Online server)
Also Mewtwo can die easily to Arceus because Mewtwos base stats are 680 whereas Arceus's are 720.
If you need help reccomending pokemon and sets just send me a messege (I will reccomend using a Sunshine team because Drought Ninetales and a Chlorophyll Jumpluff along with some other pokemon that can balance things out)

I totally failed to take abilities into account D: Oops. Trainer Fail Moment.
I think I will go look at that website. I wanted to do Nationals as sort of a half-thought-through kind of decision, but I think it's clear that I need to do my homework XD Otherwise, I will be squished. Like a Weedle.
