In the current state of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, there is no way for you to reset the EV of a Pokemon down to 0 although it could be possible in the future updates as it existed in previous versions.

How To Check EV

Select Check Summary

Select Check Summary
EV Check Procedure
1Open menu by pressing 'X' button
2Select the Pokemon and choose "Check Summary"
3Once the summary has been loaded, press 'L' button

You can see the current EV of a Pokemon from the "Check Summary" screen and an EV graph can be found on the upper right part of the screen after pressing 'L' button.

Graph Status Of Max EV

When the EV has a total upper limit (510), the graph color is while. If the EV of each stat reaches the max value (252), the applicable ability shines.

What Is EV

Hidden Parameter That Improves A Pokemon

EV refers to the stats breakthrough. A Pokemon's HP that has stopped at 100 can still be increased by raising its EV. There are several ways on how to improve a Pokemon's EV but it is not mentioned in the game.

Raise EV To 252 Per Stats

It is possible to raise the EV of each stat up to 252. A Pokemon has 0 EV initially. However, if you got the Pokemon thru trading with other players, it is likely that the EV of that Pokemon is not 0.

Possible Total Is Up To 510

The EV can get up to 510 at max for all stats. Therefore, it is recommended to raise 2 stats only then the excess 6 to HP.

Raise EV That Is Divisible By 4

The EV that is reflected on the stats is the quotient of the raised EV divided by 4. Remember that the remainder does not reflect so it is wasted if you raise the EV of a stat that is not divisible by 4.

Focus On 2 Stats

If you are unsure about your Pokemon's EV, it is recommended to raise the 2 main stats of a Pokemon according to its specialty. For example, a quick attacker is SPD+ATK/SP. ATK and to make a Pokemon durable, go for HP+DEF/SP. DEF. Usually, you are not going to have a problem if you choose to make your Pokemon more durable.
