Same IV%, but different stats, what to do then?


#1

Alright, so this is the first time I’ve ended in this situation, and now after using some hours trying to find something about the topic, then I thought I should hear others out instead.

Anyway, so we all want a beautiful 100% IV pokemon, which is hard enough to find. However, I did find myself an Eevee on 93%, which is still really good.

I do also know about the tricks to get a Umbreon or a Espeon, but they are out of this discussion, since I need a new Jolteon or a new Flareon.

Then I got this thought, what if, I get a Vaporeon, then I’ll end up with a second Vaporeon on 93% IV, however with stats displayed differently.

Then I’ll end up with the following:
Vaporeon #1 = ATK - 15, DEF - 15, STA - 12 = 93%
Vaporeon #2 = ATK - 14, DEF - 14, STA - 14 = 93%

Which Vaporeon(if that case should happen), would be the better one, since IV is the same?

This would also be a possible scenario in the future, with any other pokemon, that has the same IV%, but just divided stats in different ways. Then what would be the best thing to focus on?

The CP on #1 will go higher based on the Attack stat.
I discovered this by accident when I made my own spread sheet to list my Larvitar/Pupitar/Tyranitar, Chansey/Blissey, Snorlax and Vaporeons to get the best value for Candy and Star Dust spend. (This was under the old Gym system when big CP was king)
I had a 69% and a 60% Blissey that when I put into Poke Genie to check the Power up costs found the 60% went to a much higher CP than the 69%. The diffence was the Attack stat was higher on the 60%.
I then checked 2 of my 76% Vaporeons and found the same. One went 3 power ups higher than the other and again the Attack stats were the diffence.

The attack IV have a major contribution in the equation of calculation of CP. In resume, the final CP of a pokemon its calculated by three factors: ATK, DEF and STA (or HP) in which the ATK contibution its linear while the other two are raised to 0.5 power. In your case, your 93% pokemon with better IV attcack will have higer CP than the other one.
Of course this doesn’t apply if there is more difference in pokemon %IV, this is: if an 84%IV pokemon have 15 in attack IV and a 96%IV for the same type of pokemon have 13 in attack IV, there is more chance that the 96% have a higher final CP at the same level.
