Video proof:

Why is it upside-down? Why were there video cuts conveniently around the part where he checked the Larvitar's IVs for both the parent AND the child?

And you're telling me you don't find it suspicious at all that he would specifically hatch just ONE egg - as though he knew it would hatch with less than 5 IVs?

'Proof'. lol

I have had it happen several times with 2 5iv patents that they would only come out with 2 or 3 ivs

3IV is perfectly possible, depending on which IVs were perfect.

Male parent has 31/x/31/31/31/31
Female parent has 31/31/31/x/31/31

Destiny bond picks: HP, Attack, Def, Sp.Att, Sp.Def, and rolls for speed.
HP from: Irrelevant, both are perfect
Attack from: Father
Defense from: Irrelevant
Sp.Att from: Mother
Sp.Def from: Irrelevant

Child has 31/x/31/x/31/x IVs

You can't get a child with only 2 max IVs if both parents have at least 5 max IVs, but 3 is possible, yes.

if both parents have the same 5 perfect IV's its still possible to do 4 perfect IV's

5 will be transferred (one of them is the non perfect IV) that leaves 4 and then the final non copied is random (in this case not perfect) that leaves 2 unperfect IV's and 4 perfect. assuming they are the exact same perfect 5 iv's you should be unable to get less than 4 perfect IV's.

however if you have 5 perfect IV's on both parents that are not identical, then you could copy both unperfect IV's and 1 random to get 3 unperfect IV's

2 perfect 6 IV's should be breed a no less than 5 IV poke because it will always pull 5 perfect IV's and a random

Destiny Knot doesn't overlap IVs. Full Stop.

if you are getting different results you're doing it wrong. If this was even remotely true, it would take MUCH longer to ever get to 4 or 5 IV pokemon starting with just 2s from the safari.

If this legitimately is happening then its another unknown variable at play here, unless you can tell me why I have boxes full of 5-IV pokemon hatched consecutively from the same parents.

My understanding:

Father
HP - A
Atk - B
Sp Atk - C
Def - D
Sp Def - E
Speed - F

Mother
HP - G
Atk - H
Sp Atk - I
Def - J
Sp Def - K
Speed - L

Child (if one parent holds Destiny Knot)
HP - A/G/X
Atk - B/H/X
Sp Atk - C/I/X
Def - D/J/X
Sp Def - E/K/X
Speed - F/L/X

Where X = a random integer from 0 to 31

X will only be the value ONCE, the other stats have to come from the other options

im pretty sure its

6 iv - 5 min
5 iv - 3 min

Because logically, it is!

if the 5 iv's are not identical on the parents yeah

if youre going for 6 ideally you want parents with 5 identical IV's as it lowers the chances of getting imperfect IV's just a bit

You were just lucky with your knot, then. I've used 2 5iv parents and consistently gotten 3 and 4 ivs; it's entirely possible for the knot to choose the same iv from both parents.- all 12 ivs have a chance of being chosen.
