What are EV reducing berries?

0 votes

I have heard of EV reducing berries, but I would like to know what berries they are, what EV they reduce, and by how much. If this is a repost I apologize, as I couldn't find any original. I am playing Pokemon Platinum.

These berries also increase happiness.

they also increase the pokemon's happiness
He/She only asked for the EVs
and it's bad to let them know the other use of those berries why?  they obviously didn't know what the berries were since you know, they asked about them so i figured i'd add the other effect of the berries.
Ok, fine
Gawd. my ev training is always odd, (im on pixelmon so i can keep track of evs easily) i always get like 253. I dont think it makes much of a difference though if i have 1 stat on like 251 evs and one on 255

EV Lowering Berries

  • Pomeg Berry – Lowers a Pokémon's HP by 10 EVs.
  • Kelpsy Berry – Lowers a Pokémon's Attack by 10 EVs.
  • Qualot Berry – Lowers a Pokémon's Defense by 10 EVs.
  • Hondew Berry – Lowers a Pokémon's Special Attack by 10 EVs.
  • Grepa Berry – Lowers a Pokémon's Special Defense by 10 EVs.
  • Tamato Berry – Lowers a Pokémon's Speed by 10 EVs.

These berries also increase happiness level by 10, 5, or 2 depending on the current happiness level.

Each one of these berries lowers the EVs by 100 as long as the stat is above 100 EV points.
For instance: You have invested the maximum 255 EVs in Attack. It would take 8 Kelpsy berries to lower the EVs to 0. The first two berries would lower it down by 100 EVs each, bringing it to 55 EVs and then each of the following 6 berries would lower by 10 EVs.

I believe the first berry lowers the ev count to exactly 100 not down by 100. And then each additional berry lowers the ev count by 10.
