How necessary is it to have a 5 IV pokemon?

Just out of curiosity. Will settling for 4 perfect IV's gimp a pokemon competitively?

I'm mostly wondering because my recent hatched Jolly Skill Link Shellder with the necessary Egg moves is only missing Special Defense as a 31 IV XD

She has a few losses under her belt. Most of them were fairly early on in her career though.

So long as it has at least 24-25 Special Defense IV wise you should be fine.

Its exactly as necessary as you feel it is.

If you're fine with sub-31, then that's your call.

Well it doesn't matter much I believe. I mean you will use Shell Smash anyway so your defenses will get lowered.

Nanoha exists because someone thought combining Magical Girls and Gundams was a good idea. It went horribly right.
