So lets say I have a Froakie that has been hatched and need EV training on Special Attack. The Froakie has Power Lens equipped (which increases Sp. Attack), and is infected with Pokerus.
I go to Frost Cavern and use Sweet Scent to attract a horde of Vanillite (5 of them with each 1 EV in Sp. Attack). Exp Share is used and the Pokemon battling the Vanillite is a Pokemon that has a multi-target attack with Froakie sitting on a different slot in my party.
How much in total of Sp. Attack EV's combined with Power Lens, Pokerus, and Exp Share do I get with the Froakie?
"In the case of a horde of Gulpin, the formula would be: (( 1 + 4 ) x 2 ) x 5 = 50 HP EVs. Where 1 is the Base EV. 4 is the additional EVs from the Power Weight. 2 is PokeRus. And 5 is the number of Gulpin in a horde."
Thank you everyone as well as thank you for the link.
