I really don't like IV's but Natures are fun! My Sassy Gayrados is fabulous with its high sp def :)


My Adamant Jolteon is better


Jolteon is a poo-poo head. My Gayrados is so much better.

Well that's stupid. Steelix's speed is atrocious and it's not even good competitively.

You're not getting behind our jokes, are you? And I feel sorry that you're too engrossed in the land of OU, where everyone ponders around weather and Scizor, to care one bit about any of the lower tiers. I can't even. Good day sir.

So basically IVs are gone plus you get an additional nature and the EV system from RBY/GSC?

That's where the REAL players play, which you are obviously not.

Ahahaha, the REAL players. You must be one of those "hardcore" gamers that play CoD and say that Kirby is for little kids.

But then what would happen to Hidden Power?


Believe it or not, It's actually possible to have a move be randomized without a fun-killing mechanic. Pokemon Rumble, and Mystery Dungeon don't have IVs, and Still have a very usable hidden power.

The type would be randomized and the base power will always be 70. To bad for those with Technician though :(


Yeah... All two of the Technician users with a Sp. Atk stat higher than sixty will lose 20 points on a single move... Seriously though, Mr. Mime and Roserade have no technician-compatible moves of note that are worth the loss of their much better alternative abilities.

On Topic:

Removal of IVs: YES! Gone are hours of tedious, boring, skill-devoid, luck-based grinding for EVERY Pokemon on your party (assuming you don't "settle" for having an IV of 31 (or 0) only in speed).

Removal of natures: ...Why? A mechanic that, as of BW2 is almost completely luck free, and, unlike IVs, provides ACTUAL diversity, as opposed to binary superiority/inferiority, and unlike IVs, is a difference that can actually be noticed by a casual player without having it pointed out to them? Why would you remove that?
