Pardon for my intrusion, but how is the final stats for a Pokemon determined by the DV? It's a value determined for the Pokemon the instant you capture it, right?

The DV for each stat will be generated by a random roll of the die, 0 to 15, right?

Does that mean that a Mew for example would have a final stat for strength will be between 268 and 298 with a 2 point increments for 15 steps? (Depending on the roll) Or would it be 16? (counting the zero)
Therefore being impossible to get a odd numbered Mew... :P

Also, when a pokemon evolves, does it's stats increase the same amount everytime? Or is it somehow based on the current statexp?
Do different Pokemon Types raise stats by different levels?

Although these things aren't really important to the Trainer with a Shark, I was just curious...

The formula for pokemon stats is roughly:

(Level * (BaseStat + DV + StatExpBonus) / 50) + 5

That may be the exact formula, I dunno.
Therefore the DV bonus at level 100 is from 0 - 30. The DV bonus also only occurs in 2 point increments (at L100) like you suspected.

At L100, the StatExpBonus stats you get ranges from 0 - 63 (0 - 31 at L50). However I think these occur in 1 point increments (which would mean my formula isn't 100.00% correct), not sure though.

When a pokemon evolves, it effectively becomes a totally different species. It's stats can arbitrarily change to anything, even get weaker (dunno if any pokemons get weaker in any stat though, maybe Metapod -> Butterfree for defense). However for 95% of pokemons the evolved form has stats that are just like the baby form but scaled up.

Just did some testing, everything I said is correct, including the StatExpBonus stuff.
