EV should be displayed on the status screen

Much like the EXP bar, or perhaps like the gauge for contest stats (only hexagonal). No need to hide what is simply secondary experience points.

Also I think the in-game Pokedex should be more comprehensive like the Pokedex applet, containing movelists and egg moves.

Agreed. And IVs should be deleted

These would be very nice. I don't see how anybody could disagree with this.

Agreed on all points. In fact, I think the exact number of EVs should just be displayed on a status screen (maybe only postgame, so casual players don't have to worry about it). It's not like it's any less "realistic" than displaying normal stats.

It doesn't have to, though. They could be easily explained in-game. Maybe use the help system that the computer has.

If they can't understand it, they don't have to bother with it.

How would it confuse them if it's explained and visible?

Would they really care? When I first got Pokémon Red I never even cared to check the status screens. But they could just have it be in options for the status screen to be "basic"(same as always) or "detailed"(with the EV's).

The pokemon breeders should be able to identify IVs.
The pokedex should also register what a pokemon's main stat is to make it easier to EV train.
There should be gyms that specialize in the different stats to train EVs.
IVs could also follow a system more like traditional RPGs where you can directly increase them.
