Clarifying something

The article seems to imply that what we call the EV yields of Pokémon are referred to in the guide as "stat growth rates", making that their official name. Can someone with the guide please confirm or deny if this is the case? If it is, then it means we need to start discussing the moving of pages relating to EV yields, adding to the list of pages that are going to have to be moved in the effort values vs base stats mess. - Blazios talk 12:23, 18 March 2014 (UTC)

"Stat growth rates" is the guide's phrase for what we currently call base stats. It uses the phrase "base stats raised through defeating Pokémon" to refer to EVs, and I just used EV yields, since it's simpler and nothing looks to be coming out of the base stat/EV discussion. Seems Pikachu Bros didn't realize what I was referring to. glikglak 12:37, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
So it was a mistake in the article then. Thanks for clarifying. - Blazios talk 12:48, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
I meant to mean "base stats" (not base stats), but I made an error. Pikachu Bros. (talk) 13:28, 18 March 2014 (UTC)
