    There are infinite rare candies once you get access to Battle Points. You can buy rare candy with them.

    Technically, rare candy does not harm your Pokemon's stats unless you raise it from 1 to 100 with just the candy.
    If you happen to get a ton of rare candy (Pokesav, or BP), make sure your Pokemon have the Effort ribbon before using them to level your Pokemon to level 100.

    You can the effort ribbon by fighting a lot of monsters for EXP.

    I believe you can buy Protein and Calcium to boost stats before using a candy though....though I may be wrong?

    Yes, vitamins help towards getting the effort ribbon, although you shouldn't be using each one. [​IMG]

    If you're not into the whole training mechanics (which can get complicated), just use vitamins and get that effort ribbon before using a rare candy to get to level 100. This will avoid potential stat loss.

    Battle Tower would be a nice start. After the E4 and National Dex.

    Rare Candy = BAD >_>
    Level 100 Rare Candy Aruseus will get wiped by a level 75 properly trained gliscor.

    Lol hooked on candies [​IMG]

    Yeah, at that time I was the only person who knew of the cheat though, they all had their levels in the 80s and voiced amazement at my level 99, amazement soon turned to laughter after the inevitable can of ass whoop was opened.

    it recalculates your stats... so you regain the stats you would have gained if you lvl'd up to 100..

    (i magically start from 0 EV's to 510 EV's at lvl 100) i would deposit the pokemon.. and withdraw it.. and the stats will be as if i had the 510 EVs from lvl 99 and lvl'd to 100..

    do you get it?

    Actually, I read that EV training will NOT work in D/P at level 100 anymore. You only get EVs by getting EXP, and you can't do that at level 100.

    I haven't tested it yet, but people have confirmed it. You can only use vitamins at level 100, but even then you can't use more than 10 for each stat.

    Hate to say it, but from Gamefaqs. Do a quick search of "100" and go to the topic that talks about EVs at 100.

    EDIT: If you don't have an account, here are some posts about it:

    "You can gain EVs from Vitamins at Level 100, but not from battles.

    Pokemon only receive EVs from battle when they receive Experience Points from battle.

    Level 100 Pokemon no longer receive Experience Points from battle."


    "You don't gain EVs from battle if you don't gain EXP. Level 100 Pokemon don't gain EXP anymore."

    To put it in a nutshell, every time you get a new Pokemon, they have a total of 0 Effort Values (EVs) points out of 510 (hatching or catching).

    Each stat has a max total of 255 possible EV points.

    You can get EV points from Vitamins and battling. As long as a Pokemon that gets exp from an enemy Pokemon, they'll get EV points from the monster. Each Pokemon gives different EVs. Absol gives 2 EV points in Attack, while Muk gives you 1 EV in HP and 1 EV in Attack.

    Vitamins give 10 EV points in their respective stat, but you can't give a Pokemon a vitamin if they have already 100 EVs in that stat. For example, if you have an Eevee with 0 attack evs, you can give it 10 proteins before the game doesn't let you give anymore to Eevee.

    Now, what do EVs affect? Basically every 4 EVs you have in a stat you get +1 point to your Pokemon's final stat at level 100.
    You can get a total of 63! extra stat points if you were to have a total of 252 EVs in one stat.
    You can only manually record your EV points, and once you get a total of 510, that lady in Sunyshore gives you the effort ribbon. You can reduce EV points using certain berries.

    There is a much better detailed guide over at GFaqs in the Pokemon Emerald section FAQs. [​IMG]

    I'm getting better at explaining this XD
