- "IVs" should be called "genes" and "EVs" should just be called "effort", dangit.
- Egg group names are semi-canon (mentioned by a single NPC in Stadium), but not very helpful. I have some possible alternatives.
- Body types may also need some totally awesome names, though note that they seem to be absent from gen 5.
Anything else? There have been some scant mentions of standardizing how we refer to generations and games, but I really don't think anything we're doing now is vague enough to be confusing.

But, I guess if all the major websites changed at relatively the same time and people went around to all the major forums and explained the change, we might be able to do it.
