IV Inheritance

The parents of the egg are able to pass on up to 3 of their IVs to the child. These IVs are selected randomly from the IVs of both parents. The first IV can be any IV from either parent. The second can be any IV except for HP. The third IV can be any except HP and Defense.

Note: IVs can overlap. An egg could receive the father's Attack, then the mother's Attack, and then the father's Attack again. Though it would appear only one was passed on, all 3 were calculated by the game.

Get 2 pokemon with good IVs in the stats (no more than 3) you want, then breed them until the baby inherits those IVs.

I find it much easier to breed pokemon with a right natured ditto with hacked ivs. i usually just hack a bunch of dittos with adamant, jolly, etc. natures who have 31 ivs in all stats, so if youre lucky enough to find someone who will trade you these marvelous creations, it will save you tons od time.
