I am using this IV calculator by the SilphRoad Community to compute IV values. Recently, I managed to have two Pinsirs with the same Perfect Percentage, as shown here:
As you can see, both Pinsirs have
95.6% Perfect Value, and comparing their IV Values, they have
14-15 DEF and
14-13 STA – not much of a difference I think? But I noticed the difference on the Pokemons' Level it is
20.5. The tooltip says:
From that I assume that a Pokemon's level is proportion to how many times it takes to power up that Pokemon to reach its current CP. So is it just another description of a Pokemon with no application in battling them?
What is a pokemon's "Level" and it's purpose? I hope you can also explain the difference in my example – why is it
