Question about Pokemon and EVs?

So I received a level one Happiny from an egg. I can't remember its stats when it hatched, but I fed it nine rare candies immediately, leveling it up to level ten. I then gave it five of each type of vitamins to compensate for the nine levels I gave it with rare candies. That should mean fifty EV points were added to each stat, meaning a total of twelve stat points for every category. (Four EV points equals one state point.) The reason I'm confused is my Happiny's stats read as such: Attack - 7, Defense - 9, Sp. Atk. - 11, Sp. Def. - 22, Speed - 12. Why are some of the stats equal to or less than twelve if the vitamins should've theoretically added twelve stat points to every category?

    First of all, each Pokémon can have up to 510 EVs total, and each stat maximizes out at 255 EVs. By giving five of each vitamins for each stat, your Happiny now has an EV spread of 50/50/50/50/50/50. However, you need to level up all the way to Level 100 to see the increase of 12 stat points, as well as your Pokémon's nature. If your Pokémon has a beneficial nature for a specific stat, it can raise that stat more than just 12.

    It's because your Happiny's level is only 10. When you EV train lower level Pokemon, (by feeding the vitamins or by simply EV boosting,) they are getting the appropriate EV's, however, it isn't very noticeable at lower levels because the stats don't change that much, (you technically don't get the EV's you earned right away.) You'll notice the difference your EV's are making once you level up your Happiny some more, (I would say either once you evolve it or once it hits around level 30, that you'll start to notice the difference your EV's are making.)

    its hard to tell of the pokemon like at lv 10 has EVs but if you go to high lvs like 40 or 30 you will see the stats change.
