I don't understand how you could get 255 EVs. Can someone explain? :3

And I'm asking about how you could get 255 EVs, not 252.

And one more thing, it says here that you can get 255 EVs in one stat

Best answer

You cant get 255 EVs. It must be a glitch of some sort, or a hack. The max is 252, as you know. It's impossible withut hacking, or using the AR. No other way. Whatever Pokemon you sw with 255 EVs is hacked somehow. I'm sure of it. As long as the EVs effect the stat points, then it's hacked or glitched. You can obviously have a lot more EVs, but it can't effect your stats unless it's hacked or glitched. Yes, it does say that, BTW. 252 EVs are the max EVs you can have when it effects your stat points. So, to wrap this up, yes. You can have 255 EVs, though remember this. The last three EVs will NOT effect your stats.

I said 255 EVs, not 252.
This is wrong. You can put 255 EV's in one stat. But you are just wasting some EV's for one more stat point.
Look at the bolded spot.
No. You can invest 255 in one stat. But there is no point.
I know. Have you read my answer?
You just edited to make it like mine. -_-
No, I didn't. And BTW you did that on my last answer.
Thanks LTBL.
The first part and the last part is contradicting each other...
This is worthless. You pretty much just copied my whole statement and posted it in a different way.
Thanks for what?
Lol. Fix your answer MF.
LTBL, thanks for BA. And whats wrong with my answer Flare?
You're welcome :P

You mean to say 252 right?

Yeah, that is the maximum amount of EV's that you can put in a stat.
This raises the stats by 63 stat points. After investing 252 EV's in a
stat, the stat is officially maxed out, after a beneficial nature.
Just EV train a lot and get the 252 EV's in one stat.

About 255:

Since every 4 EV's equal one stat point, there is no point in putting 255 EV's in one stat. Instead, putting 252 makes room for 4 EV's in another stat. The 3 EV's are then just gone and cannot be used.
