I think the current stat system is well balanced and easy enough to understand that adding anything more would just upset that. More than that, base stat totals for all Pokémon as well as the number of EVs a Pokémon can have will have to be readjusted. To me that's just creating an unnecessary complication for players, and some newer players or those getting introduced into competitive battling already think the current system can be confusing as it is.

Also, a stat for evasiveness? Yeesh! Could you just imagine a Pokémon with a high evasive stat, an ability such as Sand Veil or Snow Cloak, and a move that lowers their opponents accuracy? That's like a battle nightmare!

A fitting quote for this would be, "Why fix something that isn't broke?"
