Does the stat boost of the macho brace affect all stats and does the debuff of speed only affect it when it is equipped? Also does a macho brace along with pokerus quadruple the stat boost?

Best answer

The macho brace doubles the EVs gained for all stats but it reduces only the speed in battle

Example taken from the DBs EV page:
A Starly normally provides 1 Speed EV, but with your Pokémon holding the Macho Brace, it will receive 2 Speed EVs.

So that means when you kill something that gives 2 hp evs then with the macho brace you would get 4 hp evs
and it is only in effect when your Pokemon is holding it

Hope I helped :)

Thank you! Does pokerus quadruple the stat boost?
yes it does
Okay so it only reduces your pokemons speed WHILE it is holding it right?
