Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does the EV wings (muscle wing, swift wing, etc) make effect on the Effort Value points when you level up?

0 votes

Or they rise up the EV point right at the moment I give it to my Pokemon? I'm giving swift wings to an Excadrill but it didn't rise.

So I will get those points when I level up or is something else going on?

It is at lvl57 and I doubt it has already reached the speed limit

The EV points are applied as soon as you use them. Remember that for every 4 wings you use the stat goes up once.

EV points aren't gained according to level, they are gained according to items used/ battles won.

When you battle a wild Pokemon, you gain the EV(s) after you've defeated the wild Pokemon.

When you use an EV increasing/ decreasing item on your pet, it will take effect immediately.

If you have not been keeping track of the wild Pokemon your Excadrill has battled, then it's probably used up its 510 EV quota, which means that it cannot gain any more EVs in any stat.

Additionally, a Pokemon will only take 100 EVs from Vitamins (so 10 vitamins) in one stat, and then it will reject them afterwards. Also, it will only accept the vitamins for its first 100 EVs in the specific stat, so if you already have some speed EVs then it won't accept the full 10 vitamins.

 Berry             EVs removed
Pomeg Berry     -10 HP EVs
Kelpsy Berry    -10 Attack EVs
Qualot Berry    -10 Defense EVs
Hondew Berry    -10 Sp. Atk EVs
Grepa Berry     -10 Sp. Def EVs
Tamato Berry    -10 Speed EVs

These are a list of EV reducing berries, and if you give 11 of each berry to your Pokemon, it will have 0 EVs, which means you can EV train from the beginning.

11 berries are needed because the first berry reduces the EV in a stat to 100, and the other 10 take away that 100.

"When you use an EV increasing/ decreasing item on your pet, it will take effect immediately." - This was basically the only sentence in the answer that actually answered the question, everything else was unneccassary.
"It is at lvl57 and I doubt it has already reached the speed limit" - I just thought that they were also asking why their Excadrill wasn't accepting wings.
He didnt say it wasnt accepting wings, he said the stat just wasnt changing.
That's right Ravens, but the berries information is quite useful. Thank you both :)
