I have a Frillish. I killed a Swadloon (Macho Brace held) and did not grow a level. I know that EVs are applied after battle but my defense stats after beating one went from 39->40 and then the next one I killed didnt raise my defense at all. Shouldn't my stats raise by more than one since Swadloon is 2 Defense EVs x 2 for macho brace.
Second Question: If I vs 2 Swadloons (Double Grass Wild) and have my frillish in the battle and kill both with the Macho Brace Equipped do I get 8 Defense EVs? (@ Swadloons = 4 x 2 for Macho Brace = 8)
