This guide contains whether Pokemon Legends: Arceus has an IV or Individual Value. This also includes information about the IV replacement called Effort Levels.
Is There An Individual Value (IV)?
There Is No Individual Value (IV) In This Game
In this game "Pokemon Legends: Arceus", there is no IV unlike the other Pokemon series game. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to carefully select Pokemon with high Individual Values (IV).
Effort Levels Instead Of Individual Value
Instead of Losing Individual Values, it is being replaced by a new system called "Effort Levels". The Effort Levels is a numerical value that indicates how much each status is strengthened and the higher the Effort Levels, the stronger your Pokemon is. It is a system that mixes "Effort Value" and "Individual Value".
The Maximum Stats Of The Effort Level Is The Same For All Pokemon
Since the maximum level is the same for all Pokemon if they have the same Pokemon, the same personality, and the same level, the status after raising their level will always be the same. The initial value of the level is random, but it will be the same in the end, so there is no need to forcefully select it.How To Raise Effort Levels Guide!
What Is An Individual Value (IV)?
Hidded Status (Talent) of Pokemon
The individual value is the hidden status of a Pokemon, and it is like quantifying the talent set for each of the 6 ability value (HP / Attack / Defense / Speed / Special Attack / Special Defense). Individual values were randomly determined when Pokemon were caught or hatched from eggs.
There Are 32 Stages From 0 To 31
There are 32 individual values from the lowest 0 to the highest 31, and the larger value, the higher the max stats. In addition, there are individual values that have a special name, such as calling the IV "31" "V". See below for details.
