The '''box trick''' is a method in the [[maincore series]] [[Pokémon games]] that allows a Pokémon to change its stats due to [[effort values]] without [[level|leveling up]]. It works in all generations until Generation V. In Generation {{gen|I}} and {{gen|II}}, this method can be used to EV train level 100 Pokémon.
 
Usually, a Pokémon's stats are calculated upon leveling up; however, Pokémon stored in the [[PC]] have only the numbers used in the calculations stored, (namely the [[Effort values|EVs]], [[Individual values|IVs]] and [[base stats]]) so depositing and withdrawing a Pokémon from the PC will cause its stats to be recalculated. By training or by using [[vitamins]] or {{cat|Friendship-raising Berries|stat-reducing Berries}}, the number of effort values can be changed between levels.
