'''Individual values''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|個体値|こたいち}}''' ''individual values''), abbreviated IVs, officially known as '''individual strengths''' (Japanese: '''コジンセイリョク''' ''individual strengths''), and sometimes referred to as '''determinant values''' (DVs) in the context of [[Generation I|Generations I]] and {{gen|II}}, are the Pokémon equivalent of {{wp|genes}}. They are instrumental in determining the [[stats]] of a Pokémon, being responsible for the large variation in stats among untrained Pokémon of the same species.
