Zero. Losing by IV's alone is just theoretical - you'd sooner find a legit Shiny Pokemon.

Who knows? Hacked stats are so close to legit you can't tell the difference.

By Hacked Legit Pokemon, of course, I mean Pokemon hacked to have legitimate stats/movesets, not this Wondertomb crap or 999-stat Flamethrowing Dittos. The worst-case scenario here is fighting an all-31 IV Pokemon.

How many times have you lost solely because the opponent had a few stat points higher than you due to an IV you wouldn't normally boost? (i.e. surviving with 1 HP or so because of a good Defensive IV on a perfect-IV Pokemon) This is going to mean a very close match, of course, since if you're losing by any margin larger than one hit, you were getting outplayed, not outhacked.

EDIT:
Just to clarify, this topic is NOT about the morality of bicycle riding while you watch TV.

Indeed it is. I included options for everyone, including the option to lie about your personal experiences. You may choose to say One, Two, or 3+ instead if it actually happened. :3 ... I'm starting to think the results are going to be skewed by people not reading what they're voting for.

Aww man, I wanted to use that as an example of why hacking is bad.

There's no such thing as hacked stats in your case.


They all have the same stats, it's how they got them.


But people usually use stuff like that as an excuse when they lose in wifi, so they can feel better about themselves.

"hurr I lost, it's because his pokemon have the best stats they can get and mine dont! Wahhhh!"

I use hacked legit Pokemon. I still lose a good deal because I just roll with favorites. But I have beaten a few OU teams with lame teams just because they don't know what to predict from my NU's and UU's.

Other than that, it really doesn't matter. I've fought more people who actually spend days just to get perfect IV'd Pokemon without RNGing than those who have hacked, and there's pretty much zero difference.
#9overmaxxPosted 1/11/2013 3:37:23 PM(edited)
I wouldn't know, I don't play with people who hack, and if I did face hacked Pokemon without knowing, then I have no way of knowing if IVs decided anything.

The only practical way I can see of it mattering is speed when two of the same Pokemon are on the field. I always breed for 31 Speed IV and don't care about the other stats.
