Considering the prevalence of Foul Play, I would say so.

No I'm talking about does it matter about what my attack IVs are on my parents?

Nope. Since all HP moves are locked at 60 BP, you don't need to worry about ATK IVs.

I know that.

I just want to know should I care about my attack IVs for my parents when it comes to getting 30 Attack IVs?

If you're trying to get 30 ATK IVs, then yes you have to have a parent that has 30 ATK IVs to pass down to the egg. I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to ask.

No. Destiny Knot picks 5 different IVs from either parents and passes them to the offspring. So with a Destiny Knot, the egg will have 5 different stats obtain their IVs from the parents, while 1 stat will has its IVs generated by random.

If you want 30 ATK IVs, you would need at least one parent with 30 ATK IVs otherwise you'll be leaving it to random chance.

As a simple example, if you have two perfect 6 IV parents (31/31/31/31/31/31), then the eggs will get 5 of them from either parent and one stat will be generated at random. So the egg could be (31/x/31/31/31/31) or any other combination at random.
