IVs are literally the best mechanic in Pokemon aside from luck-based events like evasion, criticals, etc.

Why? They're awesome.

Objection: EVs already create diversity!
Answer: Not when five out of six EVs are ripped directly from Smoron.

Objection: Breeders don't need IVs!
Answer: But without IVs, our Party would lack genes. Remove your DNA and see how that goes, okay? ALL OF IT.

Objection: Changing Hidden Power's tie is an easy thing to do!
Answer: Hello, abomination. Oh? My Volcarona no longer has Hidden Power Water? FFFF

Objection: Pokemon are still unique from EV spreads!
Answer: Again, Smoron.

Objection: EVs are already rewards for hard work!
Answer: Yeah, yeah, yeah. That's nice. Now if you'll excuse me, I'll go kill 63 Patrat with my Scizor by spamming Bullet Punch.

Seriously, IVs are the best aspect of Pokemon, and I was utterly shocked to see people who wanted to remove them. I can only assume that these are people who aren't very experienced with the mechanics of Pokemon and think complexity is inherently bad.

Agree. Random chance is, was, and always will be part of RPGs. IVs are pretty much the same thing as rolling for stats in D&D. If people don't like it, they're playing the wrong genre.

More of a Pokemon fan than TherianReturns will ever be.
Snowflame is greatest comic villain ever made. Shame on DC for letting him fade into obscurity.

They're so cute, though.

Also, I read topic title as "The only people who want IVs to begone are pregnant." >_<

I definitely need to go to sleep...night
