Dataminers have once again brought new information on the inner workings of Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee.
Today we learn that EVs, also known as Effort Values, will not be used in Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee. The same goes for Skills. While both EVs and Skills aren’t used in any way or form in Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee, they still exist in the data of every single Pokemon captured in Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee.
This is most likely to ensure they are compatible with future Pokemon mainline games, as EVs and skills still exist for those games. Whether or not trainers are able to transfer them is another question for another day.
Despite the elimination of EVs, Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee uses a new system called AVs, also known as Awakening Values. Awakening Values increase whenever a Pokemon levels up or Candy is consumed, so you could say AVs are the EVs of the Pokemon Let’s GO series.
