Enter your Pokémon’s stats and other details into the Marriland IV Calculator to determine its IVs.

## IV Calculation Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the IVs from your Pokémon’s stats.

IV = (Stat - Base Stat - EV / 4) * Nature Modifier / Level

Variables:

- IV is the Individual Value of the Pokémon.
- Stat is the Pokémon’s actual stat.
- Base Stat is the base value for the Pokémon’s species.
- EV is the Effort Value.
- Nature Modifier is the effect of the Pokémon’s nature.
- Level is the Pokémon’s level.

To calculate the IV, you need to consider the Pokémon’s stats, base stats, effort values, nature, and level.

## What is IV Calculation?

IV calculation refers to the process of determining a Pokémon’s Individual Values, which affect its stats and performance in battles. Understanding IVs helps trainers optimize their Pokémon for competitive play by selecting the best candidates for training and breeding.

## How to Calculate IVs?

The following steps outline how to calculate the IVs using the given formula.

- First, determine your Pokémon’s stats based on its level and effort values.
- Next, determine the Pokémon’s base stats and nature modifier.
- Use the formula from above: IV = (Stat – Base Stat – EV / 4) * Nature Modifier / Level.
- Finally, calculate the IV by plugging in the values.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.
