Since the name comes from online/guidebooks and not the games, I think it should have a citation.

'''Individual values''' (Japanese: '''{{tt|個体値|こたいち}}''' ''individual values''), abbreviated IVs, officially known as '''individual strengths'''<ref>[ Training Battle-Ready Pokémon!]</ref><ref>[ The Details of Discovering Pokémon Eggs]</ref> (Japanese: '''生まれつきのつよさ''' ''innate 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.
In theofficial gamesmedia, the term '''potential''' is often used to allude to IVs.
