In Scalemons, every Pokemon's stats, barring HP, are scaled to give them a BST as close to 600 as possible, meaning that some BSTs might be a bit lower or higher than 600, with all recalculated stats being rounded down. This is all done using the following formula:
Stat * (600 - HP) / (BST - HP)
For example, using this formula, Toxtricity would go from 75 / 98 / 70 / 114 / 70 / 75 to 75 / 120 / 86 / 140 / 86 / 92 with the following calculations:
Atk: 98 * (600 - 75) / (502 - 75) = 120.5 = 120
Def: 70 * (600 - 75) / (502 - 75) = 86.1 = 86
SpA: 114 * (600 - 75) / (502 - 75) = 140.2 = 140
SpD: 70 * (600 - 75) / (502 - 75) = 86.1 = 86
Spe: 75 * (600 - 75) / (502 - 75) = 92.2 = 92
Mechanic: A formula is used for every Pokemon's stats, barring HP, to give every Pokemon a BST of about 600.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is HP affected by the formulaic changes?
Q: Why aren't Ubers banned?
A: With a metagame that gives Pokemon like Blipbug more bulk and Speed than Zamazenta-C after their stats are scaled, I don't believe any Pokemon needs to be banned from the get-go.
Q: Is every Pokemon's BST guaranteed to be 600?
A: No. The goal of this metagame is to allow Pokemon to have BSTs as close to 600 as possible to make everything as close to equal as possible, not have everything be the exact same.
Q: Why do some Pokemon have lower BSTs than others?
A: If a Pokemon has a stat that exceeds the base 255 stat cap, the excess is removed. For example, if the stat cap didn't exist, Onix's Defense would be 258, and it would have a BST of 598.
Q: Why is only Huge Power banned?
A: Meditite doesn't exist.
