I don't think it's realistic, because then there would have to be sixteen different combinations of the base stats of 65, 65, 60, 110, 130 and 95. And if my math is correct, there isn't.

If I have the math right, there's 360 different ways of arranging those. Start with the base 65/65. Only one way to arrange that, since they're the same number. Now add the 60. There are three places we can put it (before the first, in between, after the second). Now for each of those three there are 4 places you can add 110. And so on. So 3*4*5*6=360.

NinjaKitsune is correct. Little more roundabout than I'd do it, but it works out the same.

With any list of n objects, there are n! different ways to arrange them (n! = n * n-1 * ... * 2 * 1). With six different numbers, there are 6! = 720 different ways to arrange them... but two of the numbers are actually the same, so you can divide the number by 2 (every identical instance - with the two 65s in the same places but "swapped" with each other - will happen twice with 720) to get 360.
