Recall that at Lv100, a Pomeg Berry causes HP to lower by 2 points (10 EVs). Both max HP and current HP are affected, so a Pokemon with (200/400) HP would drop to (198/398).

The glitch in Gen III occured when a Pokemon had either 2 or 1 current HP when the Pomeg Berry was used, causing 2/400 to become 0/398 (fainting without whiting out) or 1/400 to become -1/398 or 65535/398.

The glitch was somewhat shoddily "fixed" in Gen IV by making current HP not drop if it was 3 or lower, so 4/400 would still be 2/398, while 3/400 would become 3/398. However, since in Gen IV Pomeg Berries can drop EVs all the way from 255 to 100 in one use, it was still possible to go from 37/400 to -1/362.

It was "fixed" again in B/W, not by altering how HP dropped, but just by making EVs always drop by 10, so current HP would never lower by more than 3. This prevents any effects of the Pomeg Glitch from occuring.

But now in B2/W2, the item "Slender Make-up 3" removes all of a Pokemon's HP EVs at once. What I am interested in finding out is,

**given a Lv100 Pokemon with 252 HP EVs, how does this item affect current and max HP?**

Here are some possibilities:

- The best one; Game Freak has done nothing since B/W's mechanics change, allowing 62/400 to become -1/337.

- Current HP no longer lowers if it is 63 or lower, therefore causing 62/400 to become 62/337. However, what would this do to a Lv10 Pokemon with 39/40 HP and 252 HP EVs? Does it become 39/34 HP or 34/34 HP?

- The most disappointing one, HP is recalculated so that the percentage remaining stays the same. 62/400 (15.5%) becomes 52/377 (~15.4%).

As I do not own or have the money to buy B2/W2, nor do I know enough about the Join Avenue mechanics, I cannot test this myself. Would anyone be willing to try it out?
