Yay, someone's actually reading this! ^.^
So anyway, I was preparing my Pokémon for the Battle Subway, so I decided to buy some Power items to help with EV training. After figuring out a good Speed to hit, I gave my Archeops a Power Weight and went to Route 3 to train on wild Basculin. After fighting about 10 of them, I figured that I had 60 more Speed EVs (2 + 4 extra from the item for each one I fought), so I checked its stats. Its Speed had gone up by 2.
With 60 more EVs, it should have 15 more points at 100, which meant it should have gained at least 7 or 8 points at level 50. What was wrong? Did I already max out my Speed? Didn't seem like it. Anyway, I had to go, so I saved and turned it off.
The next day, when I went back, I continued training, but still, its Speed only went up by 1 or 2 points. This assured me that I did not max it out yet, so what was wrong? I checked Bulbapedia to make sure Basculin gave Speed EVs, so that was okay. I checked that it was holding the Power Weight, and it was. Basculin, Power Weight, Basculin, Power Weight, what was missing? Wait a minute...
I took the Power Weight off and checked the description.
"A Pokémon held item that promotes HP gain on leveling, but reduces the Speed stat. "
tl;dr: I'm stupid.
