Normally I don't have a lot of beef with IVs. Call me a weirdo with way too much time on his hands but I actually like being able to combine all the best parts/genes/traits of both parents into one child and so on; I happen to find it an engaging exercise and do take some pride in a successful attempt. It's really just the relation between IVs and Hidden Power that I'm growing to dislike.It's especially weird given Game Freak's approach to IVs -someone said they wanted to keep them hidden to keep players from viewing Pokemon as numbers, and Masuda has his recent quote about not wanting Pokemon to be about breeding. I think it's weird to have IVs at all, but especially in the case of Hidden Power.
