'''Base points''' (Japanese: '''{{j|{{tt|基礎|きそ}}ポイント}}''' ''base points''), abbreviated '''EVs''' from its more commonly known fan term, '''Effort values''' (Japanese: '''{{j|{{tt|努力値|どりょくち}}}}''' ''effort values''), are attributes which give bonuses to an individual Pokémon's [[statisticStatistic|stats]] and improve differently depending which Pokémon they defeat.
In the context of [[Generation I|Generations I]] and {{gen|II}}, which have a different EV system, EVs are unofficially known as '''Stat Experience''', or "Stat Exp." for short. From {{game|FireRed and LeafGreen|s}} to {{g|Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon}}, EVs were also officially referred as '''base stats''' in English, but this should not be confused with the fan usage of ''base stats'', which instead refers to the [[Base stats|inherent stat values]] of Pokémon of a given species.
Effort values only appear in the [[core series]] and side series [[Pokémon games]]; they are not present in the [[spin-off Pokémon games]], such as the [[Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series]].
