Stats, short for statistics, determine certain aspects of battles in the games. Stats may also refer to the numerical values of each field in regards to individual Pokémon.

List of stats

Permanent stats

Hit Points

Hit Points, or HP for short, determine how much damage a Pokémon can receive before fainting. It is the most visible of the stats in battle, appearing both graphically (as a bar that is green, yellow, or red depending on how much HP is left) and as a current/total amount below the bar. Currently, Blissey has the highest base HP stat among all the Pokémon in the game, with 255. The average base HP stat is 68 for all Pokémon, and the average for all fully evolved Pokémon is 80.

If a Pokémon has more than half of its HP, its HP bar remains green. If the Pokémon has between one-fifth and half of its HP, the bar will turn yellow. If a Pokémon has less than one-fifth of its HP remaining, the bar will turn red and a beeping sound (Generations I-IV) or a change of battle music with the beep as a metronome (Generation V) will notify the player that his or her Pokémon is in danger of fainting. This beeping will continue until the Pokémon is switched out to another Pokémon which has at least one-fifth of its HP, has its HP raised to one-fifth or higher by any means, or faints.

The HP bar also affects the Pokémon's cry. If a Pokémon's HP bar is green, the player will hear the cry of the Pokémon in its normal sounding rate, but if the Pokémon has less than half of its HP remaining or has fainted, its cry will be lowered by a half-step to indicate its weakened state.

Attack

The Attack stat determines how much damage a Pokémon can deal using a physical move. Deoxys in its Attack Forme currently holds the trait of having the highest Attack stat among all the Pokémon, with 180. Rampardos currently has the highest Attack stat of all non-legendary Pokémon with 165. Black Kyurem currently holds the highest Attack stat of all non-event Pokémon with 170. The average Attack Stat is 75 for all Pokémon, and the average for all fully evolved Pokémon is 90.

Defense

The Defense stat determines how much damage a Pokémon receives when it is hit with a physical move. Shuckle currently holds the highest Defense stat among all the Pokémon in the game with 230. Regirock currently holds the highest Defense stat of all legendary Pokémon at 200. The average Defense stat is 70 for all Pokémon, and the average for all fully evolved Pokémon is 83.

Special

The Special stat determines how much damage a Pokémon both receives and deals in regards to special moves. The Special stat was divided into Special Attack and Special Defense in terms of base stats in Generation II, and further divided in terms of IVs and EVs in Generation III. Mewtwo, with 154, had the highest Special stat among all the Pokémon in the generation in which the stat existed.

Special Attack

The Special Attack stat determines how much damage a Pokémon can deal using a special move. Deoxys, when it is in Attack Forme, currently holds the highest Special Attack stat among all the Pokémon with 180. Chandelure currently has the highest Special Attack stat of all non-legendary Pokémon, at 145. White Kyurem currently has the highest Special Attack of all non-event Pokémon with 170. The average Special Attack Stat is 69 for all Pokémon, and the average for all fully evolved Pokémon is 83.

Special Defense

The Special Defense stat determines how much damage a Pokémon receives when it is hit with a special move. Shuckle also holds the highest Special Defense stat among all Pokémon with 230. Regice currently has the highest Special Defense stat of all legendary Pokémon. The average Special Defense Stat is 69 for all Pokémon, and the average for all fully evolved Pokémon is 83.

Speed

The Speed stat determines how quickly a Pokémon can act in battle. Pokémon with higher Speed will make a move before ones with lower Speed under normal conditions; in the case that two Pokémon have the same Speed, one of them will randomly go first. Deoxys in its Speed Forme currently holds the honor of having the highest Speed among all Pokémon with 180. Ninjask currently has the highest Speed of all non-legendary Pokémon with 160. The average Speed Stat is 66 for all Pokémon, and the average for all fully evolved Pokémon is 78.

The Speed stat is not used in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon; however, movement speed is considered its analogue in that series.

In-battle stats

Evasion

The evasion stat, or evasiveness, determines the percent chance that an opponent's move will miss. The initial value at the start of any battle is 100%. If the stat is decreased below 100% with a move such as Sweet Scent, then the opposing Pokémon has a better chance of connecting its move. If the stat is increased above 100% with a move such as Double Team, the opposing Pokémon will have a harder time connecting its moves. It was called "evade" in Generation I.

Accuracy

The accuracy stat determines the percent chance an attacker's move will hit. The initial value at the start of any battle is 100%. Along with accuracy-raising moves, in Pokémon XD the player can also raise a Pokémon's accuracy by using the call action.

Formula for accuracy and evasion

The probability that a move will hit is calculated as follows:

Accuracy calc.png

Where:

  • Abase is the base accuracy of the move (in percent - e.g. a base accuracy of 95 is counted as 0.95),
  • Accuracy is the current accuracy stat of the user (in percent - e.g. raising accuracy by three stages raises this number to 3), and
  • Evasion is the current evasion stat of the target (in percent - e.g. lowering evasion by two stages lowers this number to 0.6).

If P is greater than 1, the move will surely hit. In a 2-on-2 battle, it is possible for a move that hits two or three targets to miss some of the targets and hit others - the probabilities are calculated individually for each target.

Belly

The Belly is a hunger statistic appearing only in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series. As the team leader explores a mystery dungeon, over time its Belly will diminish, represented by a number decreasing from 100. Running or holding certain scarves will cause the Belly to decrease more quickly. Other items will cause the Belly to deplete at a much slower rate, or not deplete at all. While a Pokémon's Belly is empty, its HP will decrease with every step it takes until it either faints or eats something.

Belly can be replenished with items such as food, seeds, Berries, and gummis*. When a Belly-replenishing item is used at maximum Belly, the maximum Belly will increase temporarily, and the Belly will increase to the maximum Belly.

Determination of stats

Base stats

A Pokémon's base stats will most often have the greatest influence over their specific stats at any level. Disregarding individual values, effort values, and Nature, a level 100 Pokémon's stats in Attack, Defense, Speed, Special Attack, and Special Defense will be exactly 5 more than double its base stats in each, while the HP stat will be 110 plus double the base stat (except in the case of Shedinja, whose HP is always 1).

For a list of Pokémon by their base stat values, see the list of Pokémon by base stats.

Level

Main article: Level

When a Pokémon grows a level, its stats will increase. For each level gained (ignoring Nature), stats will increase by 1/50 the base stat value, and 1/100 the combined individual value and effort value. This means that it is impossible, through leveling up, for a Pokémon to ever lose points in a stat unless it evolves into a Pokémon with a lower base stat value for that specific stat or an EV-reducing Berry is used. It is also impossible for any Pokémon other than Shedinja not to gain HP upon leveling up without using a Pomeg Berry (Pokémon Emerald onward) as no evolutionary line has members with a lower base HP than the pre-evolved forms.

Nature

Main article: Nature

Most Natures enhance the growth of one stat, while hindering the growth of another. After all other calculations are finished, the stat that the Nature enhances will be 110% of what it would be without the Nature, and the stat hindered will be 90% of its normal value.

Individual values

Main article: Individual values

Individual values cause two Pokémon of the same species to have different stats. Between generations there are different manners of determining them.

Effort values

Main article: Effort values

Effort values are what cause a trained Pokémon to have higher stats than an untrained counterpart of the same level. For every 4 EVs gained, a level 100 Pokémon will have 1 extra point in its stats. Variance of stats caused by EVs reaches a maximum of 63 points at level 100, as a Pokémon can gain a maximum of 255 EVs in a single stat.

Formula

See also: Damage calculation

In Generations I and II

The stat is rounded down if the result is a decimal.

HP calc.png

Statcalc gen12.png

Example

Consider a Level 81 Pikachu with the following IV's and EV's:

HP Attack Defense Speed Sp.Atk Sp.Def Total
Base stat 35 55 30 90 50 40[1] 300
IV 7[2] 8 13 5 9[3] 42
EV 22850 23140 17280 24795 19625 107690
  1. In Generation I, this stat did not exist. The Pikachu's Special stat would simply be 50.
  2. This is calculated as shown in the IV article.
  3. In the first two generations, the Special IV was unified.

Its HP can be calculated as follows:

StatExampleHPGen2.png StatExampleHPGen2 2.png

Its Speed can be calculated as follows:

StatExampleSpeedGen2 1.png StatExampleSpeedGen2 2.png

Its Special Attack and Special Defense stats simply rely on the Special EV and IV.

StatExampleSpAtkGen2 1.png StatExampleSpAtkGen2 2.png

StatExampleSpDefGen2 1.png StatExampleSpDefGen2 2.png

In the end, this Pikachu's stats are:

HP Attack Defense Speed Sp.Atk Sp.Def
Base stat 35 55 30 90 50 40
IV 7 8 13 5 9
EV 22850 23140 17280 24795 19625
Total 189 137 101 190 128 112

Note that some numbers may be off by one due to rounding.

In Generations III, IV, and V

The stat is rounded down if the result is a decimal. It is also rounded down before the Nature multiplier, if any, is applied.

HPStatCalcGen34.png

OtherStatCalcGen34.png

These formulas mean that, aside from Shedinja's HP, which is always 1, the lowest a stat can ever possibly be is 4.

Example

Consider a Level 78 Garchomp with the following IV's and EV's and an Adamant nature:

HP Attack Defense Speed Sp.Atk Sp.Def Total
Base stat 108 130 95 102 80 85 600
IV 24 12 30 5 16 23 110
EV 74 195 86 23 48 84 510

Its HP can be calculated as follows:

StatExampleHPGen4.png StatExampleHPGen4 2.png

The Adamant nature raises Attack and lowers Special Attack. This means that when calculating the Attack stat, Nature = 1.1, and when calculating the Special Attack stat, Nature = 0.9. So this Garchomp's Attack stat will be:

StatExampleAttackGen4 1.png StatExampleAttackGen4 2.png

And its Special Attack stat will be:

StatExampleSpAtkGen4 1.png StatExampleSpAtkGen4 2.png

Its Speed stat, on the other hand, has no Nature multiplier, so it is calculated as:

StatExampleSpeedGen4 1.png StatExampleSpeedGen4 2.png

In the end, this Garchomp's stats are as follows:

HP Attack Defense Speed Sp.Atk Sp.Def
Base stat 108 130 95 102 80 85
IV 24 12 30 5 16 23
EV 74 195 86 23 48 84
Total 289 280 193 172 136 171

Note that some numbers may be off by one due to rounding.

Stat modifiers

Some moves and Abilities can change stats during battle, raising them and lowering them as part of the effect. Some items will also do this.

In-battle stat modifiers multiply specific stats by a certain amount, meaning that a higher starting stat will have a bigger change. For each stat, there are six stages of increase, and six stages of decrease. The stages are cumulative: adding a stage of increase, and then a stage of decrease, results in no net change to the stat. The six stages of increase are x1.5, x2.0, x2.5, x3.0, x3.5, and x4.0. The six stages of decrease are 2/3, 1/2, 2/5, 1/3, 2/7, and 1/4. Accuracy and evasion modifications are calculated in a different manner[1]. However, in the Generation I handheld games, the accuracy and evasion modifiers are the same as the normal stat modifiers[2]; this was changed in the Japanese version of Pokémon Stadium and all international versions.

Some modifiers, such as Huge Power and Pure Power, do not work with the above stages, and thus can stack on top of them. For example, a Pokémon with Pure Power and six stages of increase in Attack would have eight times its normal attack.

In Generation IV, during a Sandstorm, all Rock-type Pokémon gain 50% Special Defense, which does not work with stages.

All stat modifiers listed below, except the vitamins, wings, and the EV Berries, will increase the corresponding stats only for the battle that they are used in.

Stages

When a status move is used that is meant to increase or decrease a stat of an in-use party or foe Pokémon it will be measured according to the following fractions[3]:

In the anime

Stats in the anime appear to leave out the Special and Physical concept. It is more dependent on attack power and the amount of damage inflicted instead of Attack and Special Attack, and endurance rather than Special Defense and Defense. One example was seen in Pedal to the Mettle! when Paul's Weavile used Swords Dance, an Attack-boosting move, which boosted Blizzard, a special move, as well as Ice Shard and Metal Claw. Another instance was in Shocks and Bonds, where Johnny's Aggron's Harden, a Defense-boosting move, appeared to defend against Tyson's Sceptile's SolarBeam, a special move.

Notes

  1. According to this post on the Smogon University forums, the formula simply uses a base numerator and denominator of 3 instead of 2 (that is, the modifiers are instead x1.33, x1.66, x2.0, etc. on the plus side and x0.75, x0.60, x0.5, etc. on the minus side).
  2. Pokémon Wiki page on Hit calculation (JP) The first section pertains to Generation I.
  3. Stage numbers from Psypokes.com, some fractions simplified.
