last week i stumbled across a youtube video describing the basics of breeding, IVs and EVs...

my mind was blown. i hadn't played pokemon since third grade and i had no clue these existed. so i dusted off my old copy of emerald and i can't believe how adaptive this game is i enjoyed this game ten years ago and now i'm enjoying all the number manipulation that i didnt even know you could do.

tldr: pokemon is magical.

Hmm, not sure. I knew since yellow that "all pokemon are different" and that "trainer pokemon are stronger," but I don't think I knew the specifics until gen 4, when my friend started EV training

Gen 3. I either didn't know or just didn't care in Gen 2.

Long before I even got my first game (SoulSilver).
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

3rd gen, but still didn't get the true complexities of the system, all i knew was if i kill X amount of Y then i should have a boost of Z stats near/at level 100; i don't battle competitively though.

I knew about IVs back in the first two gens (when they were DVs) because I started to get interested in hacking and such. I'm not sure if I knew about EVs (or Stat EXP). Really, it was more of a passing interest; I knew what they were, and a little bit about how they worked, but not much else.

Then when gen 3 came out and the IV and EV systems were overhauled, I got a lot more into the intricacies of how they worked, made my own IV calculators, stuff like that.
