Agreed. Why put this mechanic in the game when you can't even see it?
While any semi competitive player knows Pokemon is a game of numbers, Nintendo and GameFreak want the game to remain "mystical" for kids, casuals, or idiots who don't understand that.
Really, with the internet, this kind of information control is near meaningless. IVs should be removed and there should be a device in the game that just plain tells you EVs, as well as an easy way to reset or decrease EVs so Pokemon you go through the "story" with aren't trash.
1. The only fool bigger than the person who knows it all is the person who argues with him. 2. They're all complacent sheeple. <==]-<(-_o)>-[==>
