Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Question about switching out for EV training.

1 vote

Let's say I came across a lvl 15 Basculin which gives 2 EVs in Speed, I send out a lvl 1 Torchic with a Power Anklet then switch out to a more powerful pokemon. Will both pokemon receive 2 EVs in speed or will it be split? Will my Torchic still receive the bonus from the power anklet?

Unlike experience points, which are reduced when multiple Pokémon are receiving experience, effort points are awarded equally to all Pokémon who participated in defeating a Pokémon. Though they are shared, each of the Pokémon will receive the standard amount of effort points.

Now I'm confused, the answer you posted contradicts the answer that was posted previously...
Because his answer is incorrect.
? How is my answer wrong.... it's the same as yours.
You are saying that with 2 points, each of the 2 Pokemon would get one. I'm sayng that both would get 2 points each.
oh.... well thats nice to know.
