So how will we find out IVs for new Pokemon?

#1WiseWarrior101Posted 10/7/2013 10:11:59 PM
One of the Pokemon I plan to use online is Greninja. It will probably be the weakest on my team, but I love it, and judging by what I've seen so far it will still be a worthy addition. However, how on earth will I find out the IVs? I've used Metalkid's site to find out IVs for older Pokemon, but since the game is brand new, what should I do? I don't want to go through the whole game not knowing only to find out there's straight 0s all across lol.

Also, if there's an easy method available, please excuse me, as this is the first Pokemon game I'll be playing competitively, so I don't know much yet. :)

Don't worry about EV/IV's until Post-Game. Then you can start focusing on breeding and more info will be available.

Eventually the base stats will be figured out, either by cracking the game or by pure mathimagics. From there, the Pokemon will be added to IV calculators, and you can calculate their IVs. I'm sure there's an in-game dude who tells you the best IV(s) and the overall potential.

Also, if you use your in-game Pokemon competitively, you're doing something wrong.

that, but then most of Gen V's competitive battle was simply "Pokegen or GTHO"

Probably this. You're gonna wanna wait for the finer details to be confirmed.

I'm assuming you'd need to find the obligatory IV checker, then obtain a Pokemon that has a perfect IV in one or more of its stats.

Then you'd be able to estimate its base stat by getting it to level 100, then subtracting any increases from IVs and EVs.

Pokegen or something similar will exist in gen 6. It might take some time, but it will happen sooner or later.

Even if by some miracle it doesn't, people will actually have to breed their new gen 6 Pokemon or older Pokemon with new egg moves, and they will do it, and they will complain about it, but they will still do it.
