  • ADV: Ruby / Sapphire / Emerald / FireRed / LeafGreen
  • DPP: Diamond / Pearl / Platinum
  • BW: Black / White
  • BST: Base Stat Total

  • OTR: Offensive Trick Room
  • SS: Swift Swim / Sandstorm / Sand Stream
  • VGC: Video Game Championships

BP is Battle Points or Base Power.
Ok, I'll add that. Thanks!
VGC stands for Video Game Championship.
I think that NVE is Not Very Effective.
