Inkay will always have the Eviolite boost. Its EVs do not matter at all. However, if you evolve Inkay into Malamar, then it will not keep the 1.5x Defence and Special Defence boost from the Eviolite. The Eviolite only works on Pokemon that can still evolve. Malamar cannot evolve, thus it does not get a boost from the Eviolite.
