So regarding breeding and IVs

This is what you do in a nutshell, correct?

1. Get a Ditto with 2 perfect IV stats from the Friend Safari
2. Always use the Everstone on whoever has the nature you want to pass down
2. Get the desired Female pokemon and breed her with the Ditto
3. Hatch the egg and have the female baby hold the Destiny Knot item
4. Swap the current Ditto for another one that has different perfect IV stats
5. Breed the new Ditto with the female baby holding the Destiny Knot
6. Hatch the egg and swap the parents again (the Ditto with a better Ditto and the mother with the female baby)
7. Rinse and repeat until your baby has perfect IV stats!

1. If the combined unique perfect IVs are 3 or less, and the combined perfect IVs are 4 or less, you don't want to use destiny knot, you want to use power items.
2. You only use everstone on whoever has the nature you want to pass down.

I read that using Power Items was only necessary in the beginning. So what you're saying is that you can just always switch out the Destiny Knot with the respective Power Item?

The problem with that method is the mother is often holding Everstone. So Ditto passes down Attack with a power item, baby has nature + attack + whatever RNG gave you. Baby becomes the new mother. Ditto holds another power item, but there is no way to insure that attack stat passes down now.
