I feel kinda silly for asking this, but what are EVS and IVS? I keep seeing them every where on this forum, and I wanna know!
Here's your answer:

IV stands for Individual Value, and they are randomly generated things that affect your Pokemon's stats.

EV stands for Effort Value, which is points contributed towards a stat when you knock out a Pokemon or use a certain item.
