Alright guys, what is going on? It is Hank here from Nintendome. So today, I’m going to be showing you guys how to get the strongest Pokemon possible in Pokemon Go. Now this can be accomplished by using the IV system and you guys heavily requested an explainer on this down in the comments section of my last video. An IV, which by the way IV is short for individual value, basically tells you the potential for your Pokemon. Levels and stats actually exist in this game. They’re just hidden from you! And each Pokemon actually has a maximum potential for each of those statistics. And yes, the stat that determines this potential is the IV stat.
Figuring out your Pokemon’s IVs is honestly not very difficult. All you need to do is go to the Google doc linked down in the description below and copy it to your Google drive. After that, you can edit it, and fill in each cell with the appropriate information as shown. If done correctly, the excel file will output with a rough estimation of what your Pokemon’s IVs are. So as you can see, I have 2 Nidorans here and enough candies to actually evolve one of them up into a Nidoking. And ultimately, I’m going to choose the one with the higher IV stats. Because while CPs can be powered up, IVs are locked with the Pokemon for the rest of its lifespan. As the game is right now, there are no ways to change these IVs. So because of that, if you want to be really hardcore, it makes more sense to evolve the Pokemon with the best IVs rather than the highest CP.
So yeah that’s pretty much what IVs are. They pretty much just offer you a little more insight into your Pokemon and can help you determine which Pokemon you should or should not evolve.
