Noob Questions Help Please

So i noticed some pokemon's stats like attack or speed can be blue or red tinted, what does this signify? Also if i put a ditto and a pokemon together at the daycare and they breed, does the egg have the same nature as the parent or is it random? Finally what are IVs and why are they significant and how do you calculate them? Thanks in advance.

the red and blue are their 'EV's' which is another discussion

breeding ANYTHING in the daycare, the nature will always be random, unless you give the thing with the nature you WANT an everstone, giving it a 50/50 chance to get that nature

IV's, are the thing that calculate the MAX and minimum of w/e stat youre looking at. the highest is 31, if you look on serebii it can tell you for example, the max attack a dragonite can get, and the lowest it can get. which is decided by the IV it gets for said stat

For EVs, they depend on the nature the pokemon gets.

there is also a lit of those on serebii

for example, an Adamant nature will give higher Attack and Lower special attack

there is a nature for every combination of stats, but only one will be raised/lowered

with the colors, Red is the higher one and Blue is the lower one

EV's and Nature are NOT the same thing. Nature determines stat growth, the blue stat will grow slower and the red one will grow faster. Has NOTHING to do with EVs or IVs, those are both seperarte things.

so let me redo what i said before

the red/blue are what the nature buffs/pulls back

EV's are the points you get in the super training, and every pokemon has an EV type that, when you KO them, your pokemon will get.

Quick overview :P

Nature determines stat growth, which is what is causing those red and blue stats. Red ones will grow faster than average, and blue will grow slower.

EVs are effort values, which are now referred to as base stats. Those are bonuses to your stats that you get for fighting other Pokemon or doing Super Training. 4 EVs = 1 extra point in that stat by the time the Pokemon hits level 100.

IV's are individual values, which are bonus stats your Pokemon gets. They're different for each Pokemon. They range from 0-31, and like EVs, represent extra stats your Pokemon will gain, and they're guaranteed to get 1 stat for each IV by the time that Pokemon hits 100.

The only way to pass a Nature on is by giving the parent with the Nature you want an Everstone, and like previously stated, only gives you a 50/50 chance of passing that Nature on.

So, let's say I wanted a specific nature... Would I be better off just searching for pokemon in the wild or breeding them? How do I know what IV's my pokemon has? If I used the supertraining thing and maxed out the stats I needed for that pokemon, would I then level it to 100 or would I wait until it's 100 to redistribute its stats?
