IV refers to "intravenous" enhancements (read: steroids) to Pokemon, and the number is the intensity of the "enhancements" being pumped through their blood system.

IVs are Individual Values that give your Pokemon extra points in each stat. If you see someone saying they have a 4IV Pokemon, that means the Pokemon has four 31 IVs, which are "flawless."

How would that work? You just put the needle in and then unplug the bag and squirt the fluid onto your arm?
