values ranging from 0-31? whats the probability that there will be a good number for 5 of the stats when you catch a Pokemon, anyway to determine them
maybe by looking at the power of the stats or by leveling up when the stats increase, some don't increase, some increase by 2 and some by 1, can we conclude something about the IV's so that we can quickly release Pokemon and catch new

Here's what you can do:

  • Make sure that your Pikachus EVs are set to 0. You can do this by giving it lots of berries that say they lower stats and raise happiness (you can also use a reset bag in the super training screen if you're playing 6th gen). Use them on your Pikachu for every stat until it tells you it doesn't have any effect. That's when it's stat has been lowered to its minimum.

  • Get your Pikachu to around the level 30-50 range. This will make it easy for you to get the correct or nearly correct IVs calculated.

  • Go to a Pokemon stat calculator (here's a link to it), and just fill in the requirements in the boxes. Once you press submit, it will calculate the exact/approximate IVs of your Pikachu.

I hope I helped!
