What do people use 0 IV stats for?

I've seen some people requesting things like a Honedge or Ditto with 0 speed but why?
I recently bred a Gastly which is perfect except that his ATK IV is 0, is that useful in anyway?

Low stats can have merit. Speed in particular is useful for slower Pokemon to achieve an almost certain chance to attack first under Trick Room.

Ensuring they go last.

Maximum speed under Trick Room

Maximum Power for Gyro Ball.

0 Speed makes you:

1- Always go last. Good on Aegislash to get you to change stances AFTER you got hit.

2- Gyro Ball hits for more in Pokemons that aren't gonna outspeed the others. Example, Ferrothorn.

Speed is the only stat you should aim for 0 really.

A Zero speed IV on a slow pokemon like Ferroseed can be very useful because you will be a few points slower for things like Trick Room, Making you very fast. Can also be useful because of moves that like to go last like Payback

not true...a 0 for attack can benefit a special attacker when it comes to confusion damage.
