The concept of EV's and IV's are a lot like real life...

#1AuroraSonicBeamPosted 4/2/2013 11:07:13 AM
IV's stand for Individual Values. They are analogous to "natural talents" that people possess and it's part of what makes each individual unique. They cannot be changed. in order to reach your full potential in that talent or "gift" you need to work hard at it. Practice. Practice. Practice. This is where EV's or Effort Values come in.

So even though IV's aren't fair and seem hard to obtain "perfect" IV's just remember, they represent a concept part of the human condition, and should also be a reminder that life may not be fair, but you should always work at being the best that you can be.

Doesn't make IVs any less stupid.

It'd be like making Pokemon die because it's a lot like real life.
