That Gamefreak gets rid of IVs? I think they're unnecessary. I don't mind breeding for a move set. Or breeding for a gender. But breeding because I wasn't lucky enough to get good IVs is a little much. Especially when there are some pokes that have a 5% encounter rate. I like the idea of EVs. Customizing your poke's stats to your liking is great. But IVs is luck based. It really sucks for those who want a good legendary pokemon but got the shaft because they weren't lucky enough. Idk, I just think they should get rid of the whole IV thing. What do you guys/girls think?

Either get rid of them, or in some way allow their manipulation i.e. not in a luck-based way, as you stated.

Would be nice. It would remove the torment of hours of egg hatching somewhat.

Then again, i'd also prefer they do away with EV's.

Yea. I just think it's not needed. IVs help promote the need to hack. And that's not good lol

EV's are good though i can understand IV's but without EV's every pokemon with the same nature would be the same.

No it wouldn't. you could make a new system of allocating stats to a specific Pokémon.

I completely agree but how would hidden power types be determined?

Hidden Power could easily be based on some other aspect of the personality value. If you can draw from that value to determine Unown's shape, Spinda's spots, and Wurmple's evolution, then you can pull Hidden Power from it too.

Or better yet, just have it completely randomized (have it determined by the frame that you first encounter the Pokemon or something), with an in-game way to change it.
If you actively hate Justin Bieber... then you don't know what "intended audience" means. Hate Twilight instead, it's far worse.
