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
You look well, child.

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?
