Are IV's worth it?

I mean that like in the long run do they matter that much. I'm mostly wondering this because I just don't have the patience to catch good dittoes and breed for hours on end.

An IV of 31 adds 31 points to the stat at Lv. 100. You decide the use of that.

Depends on whether you plan on going competitive or not. Even then, some stats might not be all that relevant depending on what niche you want your poke to fill.

people here will tell you that speed is the only one that matters
if you're breeding for competitive, get a 31 speed and the right nature, the rest are not really important as long as they aren't all terrible
if you're running in game, don't worry about them, just make sure the nature isn't detrimental to your poke's important stats (ie. minus attack on a physical attacker)

I always try to get a 31 in both stats that I'll be EV training, but really, as others have said, Speed is the only one that truly matters in a lot of situations.

the other wildcard is if you need the move Hidden Power to be a certain type and max base power (70)
most of the time if you need that you would have to RNG to get the right IVs
