How Do EVs Improve Pokemon Games?
EV's create more depth and controllable customization in multiplayer battles.
IV's do not improve current Pokemon games in any way.
They never have.
Here, let me explain the system because you don't understand it. Lets use Vaporeon as an example. A regular Vaporeon with no boosts of any kind would look like this.
Well I doubt you are getting that "perfect" eevee on the first hatch. But I will go with the breeding analogy and assume the other eevees are given away as pets lol.
Anyway I should have put IVs in the title instead of EVs. Sorry.
IVs have always kind of sucked but they make more sense in a breeding term. IV or individual values are unique to each pokemon. In pokemon x & y they cap at 31 per stat. Breeding a perfect pokemon is a lot easier now thanks to the new mechanics like the Destiny knot and everstone trick added awhile back, but still very time consuming and rewarding for us breeders. Makes us wanna pull our hair out at times but eh, its still fun. W/o it id prolly of put down my game a few days ago since i beat the elite for in 2 days heh...I enjoy it.
When breeding dogs for Eukenuba or w/e the dog show is called breeders are very careful when they pick the parents. Making sure every trait is as perfect as can be, and even some of the kids from these near perfect parents might be worse off than any parent. It takes a lot of effort for "marginal" boosts. For instance a pokemon with very high Sp.atk who doesnt use physical moves wont need a perfect Attack IV so u can sorta ignore that particular stat. high/perfect IVs and nature are most important to have in the stats ur pokemon specializes in.
Its still just more depth in favor of the game to have IVs and EVs otherwise all pokemon would be bland clones of each other and lose their individuality. And people would be using cookie cutter builds with most coverage than what they use now, Varied builds with lots of coverage.
Some pokemon are just better than others in terms of stats, not all pokemon are created equal. Its just a fact, but how you use your pokemon is still more important. You could have the most powerful team ever and still be beaten if you don't use your skills well.

I mean there is no "Kill this pokemon option" available to you. You can trade it or release it.
Also people within the pokemon game do eat pokemon just fyi. Yes it's cannon. Started in gold and silver with Team Rocket cutting off slowpoke tales and selling them for human consumption and stretches all the way to X and Y and the 3 star restaurants serving you those same delicacies.

It's an extra thing for rpg to play with. They know that players love getting "higher" stats or ocd to perfection. So they added all these IVs and EVs to make perfectionist players to sink more time. It's optional for me since I can't sink too much time.
