Evasion (abbreviated as "EVP") is a stat that is the direct opposite of ATA. Similar to DFP, it helps protect characters from damage; but while DFP reduces the amount of damage taken from an attack, EVP works to avoid attacks altogether. Sometimes when an attack hits a character, they will throw up their weapon and "block" the attack, which bounces off their shield or barrier. No damage is dealt when this happens, and the higher the EVP stat, the more likely it will happen.
Most armor, frames, shields and barriers provide EVP bonuses. Some weapons also raise EVP, but interestingly, some weapons also lower EVP, such as some shots.
___/Legs units give EVP boosts when equipped.
