When you give Vitamins to a Pokemon with Macho Brace and Pokerus dose it multiply the effect by 4? Or no?

Vitamins give you 10 each.... the max is 10 vitamins.......
So that 100EVs
Macho brace+Pokerus= Multiplie by 4 i tought

Yeah .. but I don't know if that is just for EV's gained by battling..

Okay .. so if my pokemon has pokerus and macho brace and I give him a vitamin , he will gain 10 EV's , not 40 ?

correct. macho brace/pokerus only help with EVs gained in battle. vitamins never give more or less than 10 EVs.

Also, DE is misleading. You can give umlimited vitamins theoritically, but you can never give anymore vitamins once you have 100 EV's in that stat. So lets say you fight 100 Whismur (for HP) but never gave any HP UPs, you can not anymore, since you are now at 100 EV's. However, in Emerald if you decrease your EV's below 100 in that stat, you can then give another Vitamin.

Right , but I don't really see why anyone would do that ... thanks everyone .. i just needed to know because I just trained an Alakazam and a Jolteon and I used vitamins when they had Pokerus .. and .. that would mean i counted wrong .. so .. yeah
