What if they made a system where EV's effect IV's?

? This is exactly the same as how the system works by itself. Both numbers sum to make the stat so it does matter "which one" it adds to. Number of EVs increases stats by one point, add to IV and base stat to get total. You're suggesting, number of EV increases stats by one point and on a certain number increase a stat by 2 points instead of one. Add to IV and base to get total.

No what I'm saying is that the EV system can remain in place somehow but also make it possible to influence your IV's somehow.
So you still have the 510 EVs.
But whether it's EVs or another new hidden stat, your IVs would be able to increase too.
I don't know what you thought I was saying but in no way would it be the same. It's the difference between taking an unusable Pokemon with a 0 in Speed and being able to train him up to a 31 in Speed. Then adding the 255 EVs on top of that.
