Xatu's Detailed Stats

Below you'll find a more detailed table containing Xatu's calculated stats, which are the stats that you actually see displayed in game. These are affected by a variety of things, such as level, Effort Values (EVs), Individual Values (IVs), and Xatu's Nature.

By default, the stats you see in the table below show four different possibilities, all assuming Xatu is level 100: its stats with 0 EVs, 252+ (max) EVs, 0 IVs, and 31 (max) IVs. Nature is not shown by default, so its maximum is 10% higher than shown here, and minium 10% lower.
