I have 2 5 IV Fennekins in the day care the female with an everstone to pass on the modest nature and the male with the destiny knot... why do I keep hatching 4 IV Fennekins? I have yet to breed a single 5 IV ;_: what am I doing wrong? *looks at a box full of 4 IV males*

Because the 5 IVs passed by the Destiny Knot are randomly chosen between the parents, and it seems the one IV that isn't perfect in either parent gets chosen constantly. It's down to luck, unless you want to try the RNG method.

I spent a good part of last night breeding a 5 IV Ralts, it took awhile but I had a 4 IV male and a 5 IV female. The numbers are more in your favor and it just comes down to luck, lots of it. Took roughly 8 hours to get what I wanted (it was my first go at IV breeding).

Ugh... I am so confused so I save in front of the day care man when he has an egg, say no then reset? Then hatch one and check?

If you have 4/5 IV parents, it's not quicker to use the RNG method, it's harder, more confusing, and you have to think more.

Just keep at it, you're just getting very unlucky.
