For $3 per month, you get access to my exclusive Patreon articles. In these articles, I discuss how I run custom sims to create additional rankings not available in the app (e.g. for a condensed Great League meta) and which Pokemon I recommend using based on these sims and my experience as a Rank 10 player.

Master Supporter

$25
per month
For $25 per month, you can request one custom sim per month. I personally use custom sims a lot to decide which Pokemon to use at Rank 10. For example, you could run a custom sim to see how a Pokemon with your specific IVs would rank (whereas the in-app rankings use Rank 1 IVs). Or, you could choose your own meta/format and run a sim with only Pokemon in that format to see which rank the highest.

About Kennan Mell

I'm Kennan, an avid Pokemon Go PVP player and the creator of PVP IV, a mobile app that has many features to enhance your Pokemon Go PVP experience.

What does PVP IV do?

PVP IV has many features (more on iOS than Android) including:
- Pokemon rankings based on an advanced algorithm to help you pick the best Pokemon for each league and cup
- A 1 vs 1 battle simulator to help you prepare for specific matchups. It's the most advanced & accurate one available, and the only one to offer charge move timing optimizations.
- An IV Ranker to show how good your Pokemon's IVs are compared to others of the same species.

Why does PVP IV need support?

My girlfriend and I spent a large part of our free time developing PVP IV. Right now it costs us hundreds of dollars a year to host pvpiv.com, keep the app available on the App Store, and create images that are used in the app and on the App Store page. Without further support from the community, PVP IV will soon become too expensive for us to maintain, and it will no longer be available. Your contributions - even $1 per month - will help ensure that PVP IV remans available long-term, and continues receiving updates and new features.

What do I get for becoming a Patreon?

All Patreons help keep PVP IV available and up to date. Patreons giving more than $30 per month can also ask me to run one custom sim for them per month. For example, if you want to see how a Registeel with your specific IVs would place in the rankings (rather than a Registeel with the maximum IVs), I can run that sim to tell you. Similarly, if you play in a custom format where rankings aren't available (or just want different Pokemon included in an existing format), I can run a sim to generate rankings for you. I often run custom sims myself to determine which Pokemon to use in each format (this has helped me reach Rank 10 myself) and will occasionally post about my findings on Patreon.
