What if the "bond between you and your Pokemon"....

Was in fact a "IV maximizer" of sorts? As in, maxing friendship would give your Pokemon an effective 31/31/31/31/31/31 in it's stats, even though genetically the IVs would still be imperfect.

This would allow the "no two Pokemon are the same" thing to stay, but at the same time, remove it's influence on battle at endgame.

I don't think it'll be something so hidden and subtle.

Serebii said to not look into that quote too much.

Prepare to be disappointed.

But apparently it's a new "battle mechanism", according to Masuda.

It must be of some importance, otherwise I don't see why they would talk about it.

The "bond" thing does sound like it's of some importance. The Japanese logo has a DNA symbol so maybe some sort of fusing of energies will occur. The more your Pokemon loves you the stronger his attacks will be. OMG It would be really cool if you could "tamagotchi" your Pokemon to get them to love you more.
