The only way people found about it this gen is because Masuda did a tweet about it.

So what would be the easiest way possible to breed perfect pokemon then.

Have a Japanese shiny ditto with perfect IVs hold the destiny knot?

What would the other pokemon hold then? Everstone for its nature?

Breed 5 IVs across 2 parents. Make 1 parent be say, HP atk Def spd, and the other could be atk def spd spe. Now thats 5 IVs with a few common ones. The more common IVs the higher chances they pass. Eventually you can have Male with 3 IVs and female 4 and it becomes slightly easier.
