    They are known as Individual Values and they have something to do with stat points. They are different from Effort Values and Deter Values, but I really don't know what their purpose is or how they affect Pokémon's stats.

    Ok, first off, DVs and IVs are the same, IVs is just the more widely used term.

    Meowth's Site explains it the best:

    In summary, when you catch a Pokémon, a random number from 0-31 is given for each of the six stats that determines how near or far (along with other factors) from the species max that stat can be for that Pokémon.
