    Also, wanted to take this time to post a tip for everyone.

    When selecting a pokemon, be sure to assign a nature, ability, hold item, EVs, and IVs! They boost a pokemon's skill in battle and you want to focus on the stat that your pokemon is capitalizing the most on.

    For EVs (Effort Values) :

    I'll be using Garchomp as an example. Here's how he looks at level 100 with base stats with no EVs



    From this, the best course of action on how to use him would be for his Attack and Speed. Granted, you can train the pokemon however you like, but it wouldn't make much sense to make him a Sp. Attack pokemon since that stat is way lower than his attack. You'd also want to use physical moves over special ones for that reason.

    So long as this hasn't changed (I don't think it has but idk), you can assign 508 EVs. People typically assign 252 to two stats and the remaining 4 into any viable one.

    For Garchomp, as stated above, you'll want to capitalize on his Attack and Speed. So let's add those to his EVs.



    See how much higher his Attack and Speed went up? Now he'll hit harder with EVs assigned than with them not assigned. He'll also be able to move faster than most pokemon since his Speed stat also took a boost as well.

    Now for IVs (Individual Values) :

    Basically they act as little stat boosts for when a pokemon is hatched from an egg, but since pokemon are already made on the website, you don't really get to see the impact they have since all pokemon are level 100 lol. The max any IV can have is 31.

    Honestly, this site is a major help since it puts the IVs in a list for you. You'll probably want to choose the all around 31 for all stats to make it easier ("max all" option), but you can also choose the one that has Speed at 0 if you have a pokemon that isn't incorporating Speed into its moveset. You can play with the slider and see how lowering IVs can lower a pokemons stat, but be sure to set it back to 31!

    Natures:

    Just as important as EVs! Natures add an additional stat boost to a stat, but also decrease a stat in the process. Since we're using Garchomp and I'm not worried about his Sp. Attack, I should give him an Adamant nature. This raises his Attack, but lowers his Sp. Attack.



    See how his Attack increased further and his Sp. Attack decreased? Be sure to choose a nature that accommodates the type of pokemon (Physical or Special) you're using.

    Abilities:

    This site also lists the available abilities a pokemon can learn. Garchomp has 2. Sand Veil and Rough Skin.

    Sand Veil - Raises the ability-bearer's evasion by 20% in a sandstorm. It also gives immunity to sandstorm damage.
    Rough Skin - When a Pokémon with Rough Skin is hit by a move that makes contact (Physical attack), the attacker receives damage equal to 1⁄8 of their maximum HP.

    Since I want this Garchomp to be a physical attacker, there's no point in having Sand Veil since that means that I either have to waste a turn setting up a Sandstorm, or bring him out only if another pokemon set it up for me prior. I would want to use Rough Skin because that means that anytime someone hits me physically, they also get damaged. That little chip damage adds up over time!

    Lastly, Hold Items:

    All pokemon can hold one item to help them in battle. Some items, such as berries are a one time use item. Meaning, once used, that pokemon will no longer hold an item until the battle is over. However, an item like Leftovers heals continuously throughout the battle at the end of every turn so long as there's HP to be healed. Try to use an item that either compliments a pokemon's move or their ability.

    Battling Tip! - The move "Knock Off" can knock an opponent's item off for the rest of the battle as well. It's always fun getting hit by this...

    For Garchomp, since I want his ability to be Rough Skin, I should give him the item Rocky Helmet

    Rocky Helmet - If the holder of this item takes damage, the attacker will also be damaged upon contact. (Should be 1/6 according to the website)

    See how this compliments my ability? Now if you hit me with a physical move, not only will you be damage by Rough Skin, my item will also kick in and further damage you on top of my ability.

    So to finish up, this is how Garchomp started:



    This is how he is finished:



    See how much the EVs effected his stats? Be sure that you have a clear mind on what type of pokemon you would like to make and I hope this helps everyone!

    Edit: Corrected some screenshots since some showed him with 0 Attack IVs lol my bad!
