I (being easily confused by large clusters of numbers) came up with the coolest idea ever.

Graphs on the Psydex stat pages!!
In particular, Radar Graphs. You can fit all of a Pokemon's stat values in the graph and actually see how good or bad its stats are.

These graphs can easily be made by Excel or any similar spreadsheet program.

*Example picture, not exactly the best one, but you can see where I'm going with this. Just think of HP instead of "Metric 1", ATK instead of "Metric 2", etc.

Whatcha guys think?

Bad if you ask me.
If an admin does that we might end up like Pokemon.com and say Blisseys have as much HP as a Vaporeon. One of the many reasons Pokemon.com sucks. :D

Personally, I like numbers more than graphs.

If you want graphs, pick up a players guide.

Rather than rely on a system that ranks each stat on a 1-5 scale or something similar, whereby you can end up with a "very low 2" and a "very high 2" looking like they're equal, just use this page to compare stats to all the others. Yes, I know you said you're not a numbers person, so don't worry about the numbers. Pick the stat you want to look at, then find the name and the single number "rank" next to it; very simple, no?
