I went to Showdown to do some team building. I wanted to try out balanced hackmons, but I'm not sure how it works. I went to pick out Zenmode Darmanitan's EVs and it maxed ALL of them out. I now have -1002 eve left. what's happening?

I am 90% sure that's how Hackmons works but I need someone else to back me up on this.
Yeah, that's how it works, all right. Most abilities and moves can be used on any Pokemon as well! However, it still bans wonder guard excadrill.

Yeah, that’s just how Hackmons works. The team builder is designed for legal EV spreads ingame and doesn’t take format into account, so maxing out everything will make it mad at you, even though that’s allowed in hackmons. The team validation checker will still approve your team.
