While Pokémon Let’s GO Eevee and Pikachu have simplified some elements of the Pokémon games, they still retain much of what makes the series so popular. You collect and battle Pokémon, defeat Gym Leaders and try to become the very best.
And the way to do that is to make sure you’re training and using the best Pokémon. By checking a Pokémon’s Individual Values, otherwise known as IV, Trainers can discover which Pokémon are stronger, faster and better.
The six IV each Pokémon has relates to; HP, Attack, Defense, Speed, Special Attack and Special Defense. By checking how your Pokémon stacks up, you can determine whether or not training it is worth your time.
Pokemon Let’s GO IV
In Pokémon Let’s GO IV assessment can be done via the Pokémon Box in your bag, however, you aren’t able to do so until you progress somewhat.
After you have defeated Brock and Misty, you can head east out of Vermillion City along Route 11. After you make your way through the battle against trainers and the Pokémon you can catch here, before you reach Fisherman’s Bridge, you’ll enter a small building.
Head upstairs in this building to find one of Professor Oak’s assistants.
As long as you have caught 30 different types of Pokémon, Oak’s assistant will add the ‘Judge’ function to the Pokémon summary screen.
To find it, go into your Bag, then select Pokémon Box. From here select any Pokémon and click on it, then click Check Summary. The summary screen will tell you the Pokémon’s nature, how you caught it and its characteristics.
To see the Pokemon Let’s GO IV, press Y to Judge your Pokémon. You’ll then be shown a screen similar to the one above and below.
While you won’t be given an exact number, you will be shown how well your Pokémon’s IV is for each stat. This will allow you to make educated choices about which Pokémon make the cut and which you send to Professor Oak.
Pokémon Let’s GO Eevee was provided to PowerUp! along with a Pokéball Plus by Nintendo.
