Well, normally, I just use the highest or the lowest (depending on my mood xD), but having a look at the IV calculator myself; I think going by the median would be the best bet.

Best bet as in the most accurate?

Well, I'm not sure about the accuracy. However, as I've found out through raising several Pokémon, if I go by the highest or lowest, as the Pokémon levels up, that range can change dramatically, so the median sounds like a safer bet.

Ok, it won't be accurate, so if you're planning for certain HPtype and can't get the HP Guide, it won't help there. But if you want to know if it's reasonably got good or bad stats this will help. It will tell you if your special attacker's IVs are low or high.

I'd not only take the Median in consideration but also the range too.

OK, I just got an Egg in a trade. Thing is, it's called "Ei" instead of "Egg". Any threat there?

6. Re: Simple Questions/Simple Answers v.4 (Gen IV/V)

@Flareth that...sounds like a bad thing to me...(ಠAಠ)

7. Re: Simple Questions/Simple Answers v.4 (Gen IV/V)

It says that it's "ready to hatch."

......0_0 I think I should release it.

EDIT: Damnit, you can't release eggs.
Wait, I haven't saved ever since I got the egg, have I? Not on my accord. Or does it save after every trade?

It seems like a perfectly normal egg in all way except name.

a quick google search of Ei brought me a post on /vp/ saying that a bad egg could be named Ei, though take that with an ocean of salt :X
hatch/save at your own risk i gather, unless someone else knows better.

OK then, I'm-a have to get rid of it somehow. Question is, HOW?!

10. Re: Simple Questions/Simple Answers v.4 (Gen IV/V)

trade it back to the original owner? or get someone with an AR to delete it.

"Ei" is German for "Egg". It's fine.

So if someone were to ask me the IVs of a pokemon and I used that one, what would I tell them?

And here I was getting all worked up for nothing. Yet again...
Anyways, thanks for the heads-up! I'll keep that in mind next time I go egg-trading.

You would tell them you couldn't calculate the exact IVs, but the possible range is x to y.

Then my last question is how people get the exact IVs of pokemon. Sometimes I'll see people give a IV spread, like 23/24/13/24/29/31. I wonder how they pinpoint it so exact.

EDIT: And another question, I'm breeding some pokemon, and I think something is wrong with the natures. Here http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Nature, it says Adamant raises attack and lowers Sp. Attack. But in my game, it has it listed as the opposite. Is it a glitch affecting all games or just mine?
