So for some evolution there are variance in the multiplier when it goes onto the next evolution.
For example, a Pokémon has a 1.2 to 1.6 CP multiplier. When evolving, will getting a 1.2 multiplier put me at a permanent disadvantage against someone who had the exact same Pokémon and same level as me, but rolled a 1.6?
I know there is a disadvantage but could I make up for this by powering up the Pokémon itself or will my pokemon always be weaker than theirs because of a lower roll on the evolution?
Basically, does the evolution CP rolling affect the max potential of the Pokémon?
EDIT: I have heard in the last couple of days that IVs is what affects max CP, so a 95% IV will supposedly have a higher max CP than that pokemon with 70% IV. I don't know if this is confirmed but I will just put out the information I've found since others are also curious about this
