    (1)I've been wondering if evolved pokemon has better stats that un-evolved pokemon. I mean better stats as in do they gain more stats per level up, or do their base stat changes. I am also wondering what a base stat is. Is a base stat stats that are predetermined for all pokemon of the same species? Are base stats a factor in the amount of stats you gain during a level up?

    Example1: I start out with 2 Piplups, the two are exactly the same, same Iv's and are going to be Ev trained the same way. One Piplup evolves exactly when it is supposed to evolve (Piplup->lvl14->Prinplup->lvl36->Empoleon), while the other is trained to Level 98 as a Piplup, and then evolved into a prinplup at level 99 and finally an Empoleon at level 100.

    1. Will the 2 Pokemon have the same stats? (yes or no question).
    2. (if no) What contributed to the stats being different.

    Example2: Start out with the same Piplups at the beginning of example1. They are trained in the exact same way to level 14. One Piplup remains a piplup, while the other evolves into an Prinplup. They each level once, trained the same way.

    1. Will they both gain the same amount of stats? (yes or no question).
    2. (If no) Which Pokemon gained more? (Piplup or Prinplup)

    (2)I've also wondered about the effects of rare candy on a Pokemon. Yes, I am aware that they level up your Pokemon at every use, and they also raise the said Pokemon's level of happiness(?), but I've heard much negative talk about the use of rare candy on Pokemon. Does a rare candy lower the amount of stats you gain per level?

    Example1: I start out with 2 equal (stat wise, level wise, gender wise, nature wise, and all the other wises) Piplups. I Ev train them in the same exact stats, same exact way. When they hit level 36, the Piplups evolved into Empoleons and have gained 510 Ev's, 252 in attack, 252 in special attack, and 6 in defense. (

    but this is pokemon plat that we are talking here, doesn't each pokemon have their own EV and IV values, so i don think that 2 of the same pokemon will end up with the same stats, there will be some differences.

    As for your first question, if i am correct, seriibii has some info on that, but generally, the evolved form will have a different growth i guess

    Yes, it may seem the Stats are less because you may not get the EV.

    Thanks guys. This was really helpful.

    Now, correct me if I am wrong.

    A base stat varys between species of Pokemon. Base stats affect how much of a certain stat a Pokemon gains during a level up(Aside from Ev's). Evolution not only affects a Pokemon's looks and move sets. but it also affects the base stats.

    Rare candy's sole purpose is to level up a Pokemon. If a Pokemon gains 510 Ev's, rare candy's will have no negative effects. (That is to say, it will not make the Pokemon inferior to an exact same Pokemon stat wise)

    That is what I gathered from these questions. If you have anything to add, it would be highly appreciated.

    Thanks again.
