How do Little Cup EVs work?

Self explanatory. Obviously you can't use the normal 508 EVs on level 5's, so how do Little Cup EVs work?

One thing to remember is that simply maxing out two stats is often a waste in Little Cup. After investing heavily in two stats you can often get free points in others, for example a Steelix (why would you use that anyway???) with 252 Atk / 252 Spe would have 21/16/12/9/11/15, while a player who made a more careful spread of 236 Atk / 12 Def / 252 would end up with 21/16/13/9/11/15. The extra defense point may not look like much, but it means that Steelix will take Physical hits 8% better.

80 EVs = 1 Stat point
1 Base stat Point = 8 EVs
1 IV = 4 EVs
