Stat won´t go lower - happiness effect applies, ev-reducing not

Won´t have any effect - neither effect applies

The first one means that your Gardevoir can still raise its friendship, but the Defence is already lowered to the max. So you can use the berry still just to raise the friendship.

The second one means it has maxed Friendship and defence was lowered to the max, so the berry wont have effect on it anymore.
