You can increase the stats of a Pokemon through EV Training. Players can also reset the EVs of a Pokémon and readjust its stats. Follow this guide if you want to know how to reset EVs in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
Reset EVs in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
To reset the EVs of a Pokémon, you can do this by using EV-Reducing Berries. These berries can reduce a specific EV by 10. Through this, it is possible to readjust its stats. The particular berries with their corresponding reduced EV are as follows:
- Pomag Berry – HP
- Kelpsy Berry – Attack
- Qualot Berry – Defense
- Hondew Berry – Special Attack
- Grepa Berry – Special Defense
- Tamato Berry – Speed
There are two ways to gather EV-Reducing Berries. One way is to collect from sparkling spots. Some areas have a higher likelihood of having EV-Reducing Berries. However, not all sparkling spots are EV-Reducing Berries, but it is bound to come out if you are eager to collect them.
Another way to collect EV-Reducing Berries is to participate in Bargains. A guy is selling these Berries in Porto Marinada Market. However, you must first engage in a Bid War with other NPCs. To access this feature, you will need to complete the Water Gym Test. Save the file and change the Nintendo Switch’s date to reset the shop. The Action products reset every morning in-game. Make sure to think wisely and outbid the NPCs.
