If you use the Grepa Berry on a Pokemon with less than 10 special defense EVs, it will decrease the special defense EVs by the number of special defense EVs you have. For example, if you have a Pokemon who has 8 special defense EVs and you have it consume a Grepa Berry, it will decrease the amount of special defense EVs by 8.

The amount of items that a Pokémon can consume is proportional to the number of EVs it has in its respective stat. For example, a Pokémon that can eat two Pomeg Berries before its HP stops decreasing has between 11 and 20 EVs in HP.

Here's another example using the thing about eating two friendship raising berries. If you had a Pokemon with 16 special defense EVs, it can eat one Grepa Berry to decrease the special defense EVs by 6.

This Berry increases a Pokémon's friendship by and lowers its Special Defense EVs by ten points (but not below 0)

Still using the 16 special defense EVs example that's down to 6 special defense EVs, because the EVs will not drop below 0, it will decrease by the amount of special defense EVs you have, meaning a Pokemon with 6 Special Defense EVs that eats a Grepa Berry will have its special defense EVs decreased by 6.

Hope this helps.
