How to check the EVs of a Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet


EVs or Effort Points are hidden values ​​that your Pokémon’s stat gains when it defeats a certain species of Pokémon. For example, if you defeated a Murkrow, the Pokémon that dealt the final blow would gain +1 EV to Speed. Every four EVs is an additional point for a stat. Since each Pokémon can only have one 252 EV maximum, you may have to carefully manage your distribution. Here’s how to check the EVs of your Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet.

In fact, you can check the EVs of your Pokémon as soon as the game starts. That is how:

  1. Open your Pokémon’s status summary.
  2. Go to the Moves and Stats tab.
  3. Press L to change the stat graph to the EV graph.

the darker yellow the shape is its EV distribution. The larger, faded yellow is your Pokémon’s base stats (or the numbers you see in the Moves & Stats tab).

If you want to know if your Pokémon can still gain more EVs, head over to Levincia (where Iono’s gym is) and look for a NPC with a Luxio with her. She will tell you if your Pokémon can give “more effort” or not.

If you’ve messed up the EV distribution along the way, don’t worry. You can reset the EV distributions for each stat. You only need to use one of six specific types of berries on your Pokémon:

  • Pomeg Berry – Reduces HP EVs by 10
  • Kelpsy Berry: Reduces attack EVs by 10
  • Hondew Berry: Reduces Sp. Atk EVs by 10
  • Qualot Berry: Reduces defense EVs by 10
  • Grepa Berry: Reduces Sp. Def EVs by 10
  • Tamato Berry – Reduces Speed ​​EVs by 10

You can find many of these in Paldea (they are usually the Sparkles in grassy lands). However, this is a businessman in marinated port who sells a specific EV berry in bulk every day. So be sure to check what you have and buy them if they are what you need!
