I plan on going to the regional championships held in a couple of weeks, and I was wondering what you guys thought about running zero attack IVs on my specially oriented mons. For those of you who don't know what this would do, a 0IV Atk stat lower foul play damage and confusion damage.
Now here's my question. To get an attack IV stat of zero I was have to breed for six IVs... Thrice. Does anyone think it's worth it to get this attack IV stat, or am I just wasting my time?
(Also one of them would be Rotom-W, only breedable with ditto) ------ OGODSAVEME --- Black FC: 1808-3996-9939 X FC: 1435-3721-8226

Getting 0Iv Attack on a Poke that doesn't need it is usually wort it. Klefki is popular right now. Mawile too, and you sometimes see it on that. --- On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound just got re-released in the US.

Not worth it, IMO. The Ditto problem is not that big, since you could get a hacked Ditto with the spread you want from 4th/5th gen, but that is only a small point... --- 3DS FC: 2234 7128 7908

If possible, you should do it. Confusion is nasty.

It's a slight benefit, but a lot more work than just breeding for 5 IVs.
Bump, just want to hear more opinions --- Black FC: 1808-3996-9939 X FC: 1435-3721-8226

Opinions on what? If you're not using the stat, meaning there's no positives to having it, and there's clearly positives for NOT having it. Why wouldn't you do it? It's just going to be more work. Do it if you want to.
