Hondew Berry (item)

Effects

Hondew Berry increases a Pokémon's Friendship, but also lowers its EVs in Special Attack.

Friendship is raised by 10 points if the Pokémon's current Friendship level is less than 100; by 5 points if it's 100-199; or by 2 points if it's 200 or more.

Special Attack EVs are reduced by 10.

Changes

In Generation 4, if the Pokémon has over 100 EVs in Special Attack, using a Hondew Berry will reduce them to 100. Further uses will reduce EVs by 10 each time.
