At level 50, 8HP EVs = 1 point raised?

I read this somewhere, forgot where. Is this true?

If I go with a standard sweeper set for example (252/252/4HP), does those extra 4EVs do absolutely nothing at level 50? I know that one point will usually not matter in the long run.

Just curious.

At level 50, if the IV for the stat is odd, it takes 4 EVs for the first stat point, and 8 EVs for every point afterwards. If the IV is even, it's always 8 EVs.

Cool. Thanks for explaining it in a simple way.
