Pokemon Scarlet and Violet continue the trend of making EV and IV training Pokemon more legible to casual players. While the systems are still somewhat obtuse, and the in-game resources aren’t always the best to guide players, it’s still a step in the right direction. If you’re looking to use vitamins to train your Pokemon, you might wonder how many EV vitamins give Pokemon. We have the answer for you below.

How Many Vitamins to Max EVs in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet?

Let’s start with the basics. Several vitamins in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet will boost a specific stat’s EV (Effort Values). The following vitamins and the corresponding stat are listed below:

  • HP UP: HP
  • Protein: Attack
  • Iron: Defense
  • Carbos: Speed
  • Calcium: Special Attack
  • Zinc: Special Defense

So once you’ve determined the stat on which you want to use vitamins, you’ll need to purchase them. Each vitamin will increase the specific stat by 10 EVs. Every Pokemon has a total of 510 EVs to be distributed among the six stats. Each separate stat can be maxed at 252, meaning you’ll need 25 vitamins of a specific stat to make it out.

You’ll need a total of 51 vitamins to max out a Pokemon’s effort values. The most common split is 252/252/4. This lets you min/max two specific stats that the Pokemon will make the crux of its power. For instance, Azumarill uses physical attack and HP to use the Belly Drum Play rough combo. So you would max out its Attack and HP with vitamins.

To fully EV train a Pokemon with vitamins will cost 510,000 Poke Dollars per Pokemon. It’s a very pricey way to complete this task.
