I decided to start EV training a newly hatched Charmander this morning, and with it I kept track of every battle it went through and every stat EV it got. I also kept track of the amount of vitamins I gave it as well. However, something a little weird happened. I gave 9 Calciums to Charmeleon, however, when I tried to give it the tenth one, it said it wouldn't have any affect. I checked, and it still had 150 EVs left for Sp. Atk and 224 EVs overall. Thinking that perhaps 9 was the new limit, I decided to try the same thing with Protein and it stopped at 8, with still 152 EVs left for Attack and 144 overall. I thought that perhaps I miscounted, but all my records add up correctly, and I in fact only used 8 Proteins and 9 Calciums. Is there an obvious reason for this that I'm missing?
Edit: Nevermind, I think I figured it out. The vitamins will stop working after the EV stat has reached 100 or over. Calcium and Protein stopped working because Sp. Atk reached 104, and Attack reached 100 exactly.
Not sure if this is true or not, but that's what it seems like... I'll try on other Pokemon when I get more money.
