I don't understand how you could get 255 EVs. Can someone explain? :3

And I'm asking about how you could get 255 EVs, not 252.

And one more thing, it says here that you can get 255 EVs in one stat

The other answers are wrong. Yes you can get 255 EVs in one stat. The thing is, the extra 3 above 252 are worthless as each 4 EVs makes one point on your stats.

There is also an overall maximum of 510. So if you have 2 stats and get 255 EVs in each you hit the 510 limit and get 63 points on each of those 2 stats (with 3 EVs wasted on each stat). But if you only get to 252 EVs on each stat, that's 504 total, meaning there are 6 EVs left where you can get 1 extra point somewhere.

Note that 2 EVs are always wasted, whatever EV spread you have.

You mean to say 252 right?

Yeah, that is the maximum amount of EV's that you can put in a stat.
This raises the stats by 63 stat points. After investing 252 EV's in a
stat, the stat is officially maxed out, after a beneficial nature.
Just EV train a lot and get the 252 EV's in one stat.

About 255:

Since every 4 EV's equal one stat point, there is no point in putting 255 EV's in one stat. Instead, putting 252 makes room for 4 EV's in another stat. The 3 EV's are then just gone and cannot be used.
