What if Game Freak made all pokemon equal next game?

What if they changed the IV system so there were no max IVs, no perfect pokemon, but every pokemon was equal? Like, say, there are 20 "points" each pokemon has. These "points" can go into atk, speed, sp. def, sp. atk, etc., so if a pokemon had high speed, it would take away from some other stat. This would be good to me.

20 EVs only with no IVs? I like that.

It's a stupid idea.

The better ones would be the ones who have the points in the right stats. They wouldn't be equal.

Marcus is the answer for anything except "best unit who isn't Marcus," but even then he is a strong contender. - PokeAMon

Some movesets would be better suited for pokemon with different stats. There would be no "perfect stats" for any pokemon. I think this is the closest pokemon can get to being equal without getting rid of all diversity of stats.

An infant sea turtle is actually capable of killing an adult African bull elephant. It does, however, require a substantial amount of surprise.

It would certainly help make some Pokémon more viable. It gets really boring when all you see is Garchomp, Tyranitar, Talonflame, etc...

One of the main attractions of Pokemon is the trade aspect. If all Pokemon were equal, there would be far less incentive to trade.

Balancing 300+ options (if we don't count NFEs), each of which has dozens of internal choices (move pool), is impossible.

I'd rather see continued efforts at better type balance.
