What Are Base Stats?

Fixed Stats Shared Across A Pokemon Species

What Are Pokemon Base Stats

Base stats are shared statistics across one Pokemon species. These do not change and they determine a Pokemon's statistic's traits & strengths.

Base Stats Determine Pokemon Traits & Strengths

A Pokemon's base stats determine its strengths. For example, a Dragonite's Attack is higher than an Electrode's but the Electrode's Speed is higher than the Dragonite's.

Base Stat Difference Example:

Pokemon HP Atk. Def. Sp. Atk. Sp. Def. Spd.
ElectrodeElectrode 60 50 70 80 80 150
DragoniteDragonite 91 134 95 100 100 80

Base Stats Are Fixed & Don't Change

Base stats are hidden and don't change. There is no way to check a Pokemon's base stats in-game.
