'''Effort values''' (Japanese: '''{{j|{{tt|努力値|どりょくち}}}}''' ''effort values''), abbreviated '''EVs''', are attributes which give bonuses to an individual Pokémon's [[statistic|stats]] and improve differently depending which Pokémon they defeat. Officially, they have been referred to as '''base points''' (Japanese: '''{{j|{{tt|基礎|きそ}}ポイント}}''' ''base points'') in Japanese since {{game|Gold and Silver|s}} and in English since {{g|Sword and Shield}}. They were previously known as '''base stats''' in English sincefrom {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} to {{g|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon}}.
In the context of [[Generation I|Generations I]] and {{gen|II}}, the effort system is unofficially known as '''Stat Experience''', or "Stat Exp." for short.
