How is evs shared with the exp share? If I am not mistaken, with the xp share, the mon receiving shared xp also gets whatever evs the battling mon receives. Correct me if I'm wrong with that

With power items, which mon should be holding said item to gain the extra evs? Should it be the battling mon or the mon getting the shared xp?

Also, I am asking this from gen four to present so please mention any differences between the generations

If any non-fainted Pokémon in the party holds an Exp. Share, the total experience earned when an opposing Pokémon faints is split in half, with 50% evenly distributed between all non-fainted Pokémon who participated in the battle and 50% evenly distributed between all non-fainted Pokémon holding an Exp. Share. In Generation III and IV, any Pokémon that gains experience also gains all EVs awarded from that battle; from Generation V onward, any Pokémon eligible to gain experience, even if they are level 100, gains all EVs awarded from that battle.


Also 1 more thing, regarding the question about the power items. Since you cant hold a power item while holding an exp share in gen 4, it is not possible to gain extra evs through exp share. But it if were to be holding an exp share, it would gain the appropriate evs

If I'm understanding this right, the part about 'all evs awarded from that battle' means that only the battling pokemon has to hold the power item?
