Default Help!

I have a huge problem. The thing is, I trained the Pokemon on my team without specific EV training, and now their stats aren't as good as they should be. I know your'e thinking I should just get new Pokemon, but (please don't make fun of me) I'm really sensitive, and, even though I know that video game characters don't have feelings, I would feel like I hurt my Pokemon's feelings if I used any Pokemon except the exact ones that I have now. Is there any way I could make my Pokemon's stats better even when they have full EVs? If you need me to post my team, just let me know, but I can't give you specific stats, because they're not at level 100 since I didn't bother training them since I can just do level 100 Wi-Fi battles. However, I know they're at max EVs, and I remember enough from checking their stats in Lv. 100 battles to know that their stats aren't good enough to beat most people. Thanks in advance!

You can perform an EV wipe, although doing it for an entire team may be nigh-on-impossible. It involves breeding enormous amouts of berries 21-26, each of which removes 10 EVs from a certain stat (Check serebii's berrydex to see which berry corresponds to which stat) and clearing a poke of EVs in stats where they aren't needed, which allows you to EV train normally.
However you are gonna have your work cut out for you. As an example, we'll assume that all of your pokes have managed to acquire half their allowance of EVs in the desired stats- that leaves you with 252 to clear. Since each berry clears 10 EVs, you'll need 26 berries to fully wipe the EVs you don't want. For a whole team, that's 156 berries to grow or acquire through trading- and it's doubtful you'll get so many EVs in the right places.

It really will be simpler just to start again, since it's unlikely their natures and IVs are any good either. If your irrational sentimentality is really gonna get in the way, use them as parents to rebreed and pretend they're passing on their lineage or something.

There's no need to panic. There are berries that you can feed to your pokemon to lower their EVs:

#21 - Pomeg Berry- Lowers HP.
#22 - Kelpsy Berry- Lowers Attack.
#23 - Qualot Berry- Lowers Defense.
#24 - Hondew Berry- Lowers Sp.Attack.
#25 - Grepa Berry- Lowers Sp.Defense.
#26 - Tamato Berry- Lowers Speed.

I'm not 100% sure on exactly how these berries lower the EVs, but from what I understand, if you have over 100 EVs in a specific stat, that berry will lower the number back down to 100. So let's say you're using an Infernape and you want its Attack stat to be stronger, but you don't care about its Defense or Sp.Defense. You could give it a Qualot Berry and a Grepa Berry to lower those two stats and then EV train its attack stat a bit.

Sorry about the double post, but something went wrong. Max-Attack's strategy was working, but then every time I give Infernape a vitamin after lowering another stat, nothing happens, and I can't EV train him since he's level 100! Please help!

Level 100 can never be EV'd, so you have no choice but to restart now.
