If an EV trained Pokemon evolves,do its EVs get transferred to the evovled Pokemon?

I gave 252 speed EVs to my litwick that had a speed increasing nature and as soon as it evolved into lampent I used a dusk stone on it to evolve it into chandelure.When it was lvl50,it had 137 speed.It says on Bulbapedia that it should have 145 speed at lvl50.

But when I gave 252 evs to my gyarados that had a speed increasing nature,it had 145 speed at lvl50(only 1 point less!!!)

So my question is,why does chandelure have 137 speed at lvl 50 instead of 145?

The same thing happened to my conkeldurr

EVs remain there throughout evolution
In regards to why you're at less than what should be your speed stat, I say it's because of your IVs.
A Gyarados with a speed IV of 30 with 252 Spe EVs and a positive nature at level 50 has 145 speed,
Similarly, with your Chandelure it seems to have a speed IV of 18

Alternatively you didn't get 252 EVs onto it. :P
