The '''box trick''' is a method in the [[core series]] [[Pokémon games]] that allows a Pokémon to change its stats due to [[effort values]] without [[level|leveling up]]. It works in [[Generation]]s {{gen|I}} andthrough {{gen|IIIII}}.
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. This method can be used to EV train level 100 Pokémon by using [[vitamin]]s.
