Default Pokemon's special note

Hi all,
in the dp version,
when u l0ok at a pokemon's summary (not in battles),
there is a different note 4 each poke (although another poke might have the same one as your current one),
and my question is,
is it related to the IV (indivdual vlue) of a pokemon?

Yes it is, although I'm not sure exactly how. The only one I remember is "Likes to thrash about", because it indicates 31 in Att.

And its IVs, not IV.

"Likes to trash about" gives the highest ivs to attack.
So, are IVs divided to all stats?

I'm not really sure what you mean by divided to all stats, Each stat can have 0-31 ivs.

What i mean by divided is i think that example, a pokemon has 31 IVs, i thought it was divided 2 all its stats.

Ah, no. The number isn't divided. It's randomly assigned to each stat before you ever catch a Pokemon.

31 is the max IV number, 0 is the min number.

Here is a very basic guide you can read if you'd like to learn more about IVs.

What they do is they give a clue as to the Pokémon's highest IV. There are 5 different characteristics for each stat, and each characteristic gives a hint about the last digit of its respective IV. So, "Likes to thrash about" indicates that its highest IV is in attack, and the last digit is a 1 or a 6. That means it could be 1, 6, 11, 16, 21, 26, or 31. (hopefully 31!)

Lists of the characteristics and what they mean can be found all over the internet, including the place the post above mine links to.
