I wasnt aware I couldnt use VItamins AFTER ev training for a bit

I EV trained Def for 152 EV's then I wanted to use 10 Irons for 100 EV's to finish it off at 252

but when I tried to use an iron it said they will not have an effect

the hell?

Have you put EVs in any other stats? Are you sure you only put 152 into Defense?

Vitamins can only take you up to 100 ev's in a stat. If you've already got 152, you're above the limit.

Sorry!

I caught a wild pokemon, never battled, went to Relic Castle to EV train DEF

EV trained DEF to 152 (kept track)

went to use Iron and the very first one said it "wont have any effect"

Yes. What's so hard to understand?

whats hard to understand is that, you or anybody else did not mention it having to be the FIRST 100 EV's in a stat.

You can spread 510 EV's total , 255 is the max one stat can get.

I know one Vitamin gives 10 EV's to the stat, so why, despite only using 152 EV's in one stat, does it say " no effect"

seems like a game flaw more than anything

A game flaw… it was clearly implemented the way it was intended. They just didn't want you to EV train without actually training. Of course, you could still use the dojo in Join Avenue to do just that.

Actually, if you read up on EVs, most places will say that vitamins will only give the first 100 in a stat.
