What is your lowest, acceptable IV?


#1

Hello. Pokemons IV’s became for many of us an important thing in the game.
I’m curious what is the lowest pokemons IV’s that is acceptable for you to evolve/power up them? :slight_smile:


#2

I mean, I would power up any dragonite. But I tend to prefer above 80%!


#3

Before I will power up low to mid 80 IV, now it will be more selective & high 80


#4

My personal cap is fairly high. For ultra rare Pokémon it is 91%. For legendary Pokémon it’s 93-96. For most others it is 96 or higher. Generally won’t power up Pokémon without attack (except for defenders).


#5

For me the lowest is 0%. They are so rare, I collect them.
But apart of this special one’s 90%, or everything until I find a better one.


#6

I’ll keep anything if the IV’s are above 84% (for an average pokemon), i keep all legendaries regardless of IV and i keep pokemon if the IV’s are the exact same (like my 4/4/4 Swablu)


#7

Anything that I’m going to use as defenders in a gym or attackers in raids or gym battles has to be 80% or higher. If it’s one I’m just going to keep to complete my Pokédex then it doesn’t matter for me personally what the IV is


#8

Legendary are the rarest


#9

Depends, I would evolve any IV Pokemon but usually only mark as “would power up one day” only the best ones I have

And since I always max them out now, it takes time before I can power up a new mon

If I’m going to power it up, then the moment that I go to evolve I choose the highest IV.
If I’m not going to power it up, then the moment that I go to evolve I choose the highest CP.

What about a 3% IVs Shadow Claw Gengar ? Just did a trade and it didn’t turn lucky lol. My friends tell me to max it out but 3% is awful >.<


#12

I would look at the sims - does it beat Hex Gengar?
And also wait for a potentional Gastly Community Day in October


#13

It’s a legacy move that beats by far a 100% Hex Gengar (even at 0%) ! Gastly’s community day will definitly get Shadow claw move back xD


#14

Not really. I can pursue as many legendary as I want during their release. Pokémon like Beldom or Bagon are less common, there is no mechanism to find and catch them, it’s all luck.


#15

No


#16

Technically, mew is the rarest because you only get one


#17

For rurals they are…


#18

No? What about Unown? And other rare wild spawns? for a legendary you can just drive to a city, cant do that to get a Beldum


#19

I don’t include unown on my list because they have no meta value and I will never spend dust and candy to power one.
