I accidentally gave my Kingdra...

255 ev's in sp. attack and speed. Is it worth going through the trouble of getting the stat reducing berries and battling some more?

Well, think about it this way... You'd only get one extra stat point from those 6 leftover EVs if you chose to give it 252 special attack and speed, and is that really going to make that much of a difference? It's just one stat point.

Every inch (or in this case stat) matters

Really? How often is one stat point in HP, defense, or special defense, going to make a difference?

It doesn't.
But I'm not a competitor so...
But I see little to zero difference.

I know that 1 stat to either tied defense or special defense matters when facing against Download ability poke. Ones like Porygon-Z relies on low sp.def for its sp.atk boost.

Kinda doesn't matter right now but if both defenses are tied and I'll imagine gen 6 will have maybe few Download ability around, it'll be worth it.

Because everyone makes their pokémon exactly the same, and perfect. If its missing 1 stat point it will be inferior to any other Kingdra. This is why I don't play competitive other than random on showdown, which IMO is a real test of skill because you have to figure out what to do on the spot.

Let me explain this. Basically, the ONLY time 1 stat point is going to matter is if it's in Speed.
