4-8 Hp and Atk IVs shouldn't make that much of a difference right? <_<

Those few points can mean the difference between victory and defeat. Every point matters.


Only if everything else is equal, which it usually isn't (skill level differences, team setup, luck distribution, etc.). Yes, a few points can make a difference, but the investment/return ratio isn't favorable. Instead of spending 5-10 more hours on breeding, he could play ranked matches for 5-10 hours, and that would overall benefit him more.


Yeah he can play ranked and lose to people who maxed their stats. Great.



False


I beat max IVs players all the time, with only the IVs that matter, because in most battles you face, 8 points wont change the outcome except in very specific situations.


And youre ok with losing those specific situations? You dont want to win in every situation? I hate that kind of thinking. Winners dont think like that.



A smart player would never let those situations happen.

An actually smart player would make their team as strong as possible. Because every point counts.

Alright I'll keep it; thanks for the reassurance.

Does anyone even like breeding? It's really annoying...


I enjoy breeding. I figure I'll just learn how to IV breed and trade stuff out since I've never been big on competitive play

my advice after today, is to try to get a perfect IV ditto or as close as you can. Following the guide in the sticky, I started this morning with bartering to get a ditto safari from someone, then catching the ditto with the nature I wanted, then getting a ditto with 4 perfect stats. From there I had to catch the hidden ability quilladin in the safari, then the breeding began haha.

I will probably try to use these little guys to barter, like you I'm not big on competitive play. I just saw all the new mechanics on the boards and I wanted to try it all out myself. It is a lot of work though. The most I see myself doing is a high performing team for the challenging in-game stuff! But you can get lots of good stuff in trades for these guys!
