Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Can using stat boosters hurt my EV's/IV's?

0 votes

For example, if I use the maximum amount (I believe it's only 9) of Calciums, Irons, HP Ups, etc on my Pokemon, could it prevent me from maxing out 2 stats on the Pokemon that was fed the stat boosters? I'm playing Emerald for the first time as I have just got back into Pokemon and don't know much about it past the second generation.

Maximum amount of vitamins you can use are 10.

They will not effect your Pokemon's EVs negatively. A Pokemon can have 510 EVs maximum, though in effect it's 508 (since every 4 EVs is a stat boost, 508 is the closest number divisible by 4). Using vitamins will increase your Pokemon EVs the same way training it will, but there's just a limit on how many you can feed a Pokemon (10 for any stat).

Vitamins are a faster way of EV training, since you can add 100 EVs to any stat without having to fight wild Pokemon.

You just love taking your time to answer something long and making our answers look bad, don't you? :P
jk, jk.
LOLOLOL xD
I'm kinda familiar with the max amount of EV's and how many of each booster can be fed to a pokemon. I guess I should have asked if feeding one pokemon ALL of the max amount of stat boosters can prevent me from maxing out two stats completely. Thanks for the answer!

Um, Calciums, Irons, HP Ups, all those add EVs, they don't raise the stat by a whole point. So no, using them won't be messing up your EV training, because using those items IS EV training. ;)
