Pokemon Scarlet & Violet is the latest game from the Pokemon franchise. If you have been playing pokemon games for a long time, you will know about the individual value of Pokemon. If you are playing the game for the first time, the individual value is the hidden stats of the pokemon which includes HP, attack speed, defense, special attack, and special defense.
In this game, you will be able to check your pokemon stats once you complete all the main chapters. After that, you need to visit any Pokemon center and there you could check the individual value that will be shown to you as a graph ranging from Best to No good.
Bottle caps in this game are used to hyper-train your Pokemon and increase any one stat of your pokemon and gold bottle caps are used to increase all the stats. So you need to check if the pokemon whose stats you are trying to increase have any maxed-out value. If it has any maxed-out value, using a gold bottle cap will be a waste on it.
