Convince me why IVs should stay.

Why should they be removed? They are the only way to stop hackers, they go against GF's policy that "any Pokémon is good as long as you work with it" and they discourage players from going into competitive Pokémon. All three are true whenever you (or GF) likes it or not.

I can't, mainly because I don't care. I breed, but I don't care if I no longer need to or need to keep breeding.

You know why spiders know how to spin webs when they hatch? Because F*** You! That's why.

I think he worded that badly. He means that the -main- reason hackers hack is to produce perfect IV'd pokemon.

If making pokemon with all 31s were no longer needed, most people wouldn't bother to hack. Seems like a reasonable argument to me.

Frankly, the stupid amount of time and effort that breeding requires made me stop bothering with it. I Just played PO instead. All the fun of battling and team building, none of the IV/luck BS.

I have yet to see a good reason anywhere as to why IVs are any good. Somebody who's REALLY into repetitive tasks, maybe?
#6Sir_BadassPosted 9/30/2013 5:34:44 PM
The only people who really defend IVs are hackers who will have perfect IVs and want everyone they fight to be at a disadvantage.

Because if they got rid of IVs, do you have any idea what unspeakable horror Gamefreak would put in it's place?
#8jamieyelloPosted 9/30/2013 5:36:37 PM
It would add less variety. Still, how awesome would it be to, i don't know, catch the pokemon you use?

Maybe they could make pokemon caught in the wild have a really high chance of getting 31 ivs. Nah, that's still crap, ivs should go.

They shouldn't and for those who want them to stay, fine, but they should be changed to be lesss repetitive and just generally dumb.
