It passes 5 IVs, rather than 3.

default IV inheritance is a randomly selected 3 stats from either of the parents, DK pushes this to 5, it's still random of course.

So combined with the power items to transfer a perfect, or nearly so, Pokemon's IVs, you then DK the result and swap the other...this is how people are getting great Pokemon. That makes sense.

Can you explain this to me? What do you mean swap the other?
