So IVs really don't make much of a difference?

Apparently, my Modest nature Delphox at level 100 with a Sp. Atk of 334 and 252 EVs in that stat only has an IV of 8, yet at IV of 31, it would only be 359? Only 25 points difference? Wow. I am not going to give a f*** about IVs anymore. What a waste of time.

oh, if you only knew. and the IV that probably matters the most, is speed. while having 5 31 Iv's is just going to make you hit harder and take a hit better

Fun fact, before nature adjustments a full 0-IV pokemon has a full 186 stat points less compared to a full-31 IV pokemon at L100.

And having a 31 IV is equivalent to having 128 EVs in the stat.

I'm dead serious about this. I did the math, and fretting about perfect IVs is pointless unless you're a pathological perfectionist with no life. I mean, sure, a Speed IV could be seen as important given how a couple points makes a difference who goes first, but with Attack and Defense stats, it just isn't worth it.

I just did the math and the numbers conclude that your math is incorrect and should probably repeat third grade.

Not at all. I just look for decent natures or just a serious nature so everything is even. Then I ev train 2 stats and call it a day. I manage to beat most of the local kids.

The only thing you need 31 one is speed, everything else is negotiable
