Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does Leveling a Pokemon in it's Pre-Evolved Form Decrease it's Stats Than One That Has Evolved?

For example if you level up a chimchar after a battle it gets stat points. Would you get more stat points by battling the same Pokemon with an infernape?

Yeah, Ike is correct... but that has nothing to do with Pokerus...

Leveling a Pokemon even after its pre-evolved form will not lower its stats, and most of the time, you even learn some new moves quicker than evolved.

When a Pokemon evolves, the game will recalculate the stats regardless of level, and according to the evolved Pokemon's base stats.

Like how Magikarp's base Speed is 80, and evolved as a Gyarados is 81.
The game will recalculate the stats according to that.
(Bad example... but l hope you get the point?)

If you have a Lv 100 Feebas, and a Lv 100 Milotic, and both have perfect IVs, with max EVs in Speed, when evolving the Feebas, it will have the same exact Speed stat as the Lv 100 Milotic.

Good answer and i meant it wouldnt change the evs gained unless it gained pokerus after it evolved
Well remember that Pokerus only activates afterwards.
KOing one Pokemon isn't going to give them a billion or even noticeable stats.
And, what are the chances of even catching Pokerus without infection?
