    To be fair, ev training is pointless and time wasting until you complete the game, mainly because you will lose a hell of alot on the first few routes, fighting things like Bidoof.

    Well im not very far in this game(just 4th gym but 3 of my pokes are lvl 38-40 XD[got took away by training),but i chose chimchar too,he quite the best,since he can learn lots of strong moves(i =3 close combat) an he will kill fast like hell.
    But u may have some problems witht he first and 4th gym with it(4th aint a prob with a shinx/luxio/luxray).
    Also i want to say something about the 2 other,useless u really need a wall then take the water one,but ll have a hard time at start(his first strong move is at 24,bublebeam >..>,through at his 3rd form he can earthquake ^^

    Well thats what i think but u can take whatever u want

    Chimchar is what I went with in Diamond, and I'm working with Piplup in Pearl.

    Infernape is an incredible sweeper. It's fast and it can use retarded sweeping moves like Close Combat and Fire Blitz.

    I haven't gotten too far with Piplup other than evolving it to a mere Prinplup, as I don't have too much time in on Pearl.
    But from comparing stats on serebii.net, Empoleon is slow but heavy on the defense and SP defense while having a good type advantage of Water/Steel.

    Turtwig, I've no experience with, nor do I plan on having much experience with.
    I've never really liked the grass starters =/
