I'm having some difficulty. I first dropped off my jolly Torchic with an ever stone and a ditto with two perfect IVs and a destiny Knot. I got a 2IV jolly baby. Then I switched the ditto with the destiny Knot for one with different IVs and, after several babies got a Torchic with 3 IVs. Now, to make things easier, I figured I'd give the knot to the Torchic and the ever stone to a jolly ditto.

The thing is, all the babies so far from the 3IV Torchic have only 1 perfect IV. if the parent has 3 and is holding a destiny Knot (which transfers 5 from that parent) shouldn't each child be getting at least 2 perfect IVs?

Can you explain what that means? It can't receive 10 IVs.

You randomly get one from one or the other parent for 5 stats. So you're just unlucky. Breed more.

destiny knot picks 5 IVs from the 12 IVs from both parents. at random. so you're probably getting bad rolls. keep trying

It doesn't matter which parent holds the Destiny Knot, it'll pull 5 IVs randomly from the 12 IVs shared by the parents.

Alright, so would it make more sense to use the power items to transfer at this point?
