I got a Gmax Butterfree with 5 best stats. Sp. def. will not raise! Can anyone help?

  1. This Butterfree has been sent to the Hammerlocke University Poke Job for sp. defense, and it will not go higher than decent. All the others are at “best” Is something wrong with it?

  1. They're two different things. The PC ratings judge your Pokemon's "individual values", aka their genes. You can't directly change it, but if you get Butterfree to level 100 and Hyper Train it by trading a bottle cap, you can artificially raise it (it will act the same as if it were "Best"). The Poke Jobs raise their "effort values", which are customizable stat boosts that you can choose where to allocate.

  2. Thanks! To be honest, I also want the satisfaction of seeing all six stats saying "best", but this will work too! Though, feels like a slight waste on a Butterfree...

  1. Don't worry, IVs cannot be raised by training, but if you get the Pokemon to level 100, you can exchange a bottle cap at the battle tower to artificially raise the missing IV to the max. The rest of your stats will come from EV training by using vitamins, battles, or jobs.
