Well DPP made EV training quite easy, it takes just a bit over 30 1 point Pokemon to complete a 252 / 252 / 6 EV spread, if you do it right.
You are actually right about this, because some areas have more then one pokemon with that EV. Not to forget that 10 vitamines equals 100 EV, so thats quite a start.
And for the lazy people like i do, I use candies, pokerus and macho brace.
But i didn't knew that there was IV from the start.- There was IVs from the start, and EVs, except the IVs only went to 15 and there was no EV cap (so there might as well have not been EVs). But there was stat variation.
I said "that every move was either based on pyshical or special. So it was not more only based on types creating more variation."- There was always a physical special split, but it was done by types (eg. all Dark Moves were special), so the changes were huge, greatly affecting some Pokemon (like Alakazam, who lost the elemental punches), but there was always a difference.
Or maybe i was not being clear enough. One other thing about this is, it had also some negative effects. For instance, volt tackle became pyshical instead of special. Some pokemon have a movelist that totally does not match with its base stats.
