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.
