Every four EVs = 1 stat point, but what about IVs? They are 1:1, right?

Yes. Same as EV's, they're spread out through your levels, so you don't get them immediately. But yeah IVs are 1/1

It's proportional to your level. So you don't get the 31 points at level 1. You get 31 points at level 100.

So if you're playing level 50 metagame, 30s and 31s are identical.

Only at Lv100, the effect is less at lower levels. For example, it's basically half at Lv50. An IV of 31 would provide you with a 15-16 point boost depending on your EV spread. Same applies to EVs, 8 = 1 Stat Point at Lv50.

Alright, I ended up with a Bulletproof Chespin that had 31/15/31/14/31/31, and I think I'm going to stick with it. I'm happy with max IVs in HP, Defense and Sp. Defense, and it has the right nature. So I'm fine with a little less Attack.

IV's are 1:1 at level 100.

EV's are 4:1 at level 100.

At level 50, I know EV's are 8:1 but I'm not sure about IV's.

Technically 30 and 31 are identical, but if you pump EVs into it, you can get 1 extra point if you're at 31 (lulz). I'm pretty sure this is right, the formula should be: [(IV + (EV/4))/2]
With an IV of 30 and 252 EVs, you get 46.5, rounded down to 46
With an IV of 31 and 252 EVs, you get 47

I could be wrong though.

Maybe 2:1? If it takes twice as many EVs at a lower level, maybe the same for IVs.
