what i am saying is out the 3IV the SP DEF and SPD stat is never one of the 3 IVs its always HP, ATK, DEF or HP, DEF, SP ATK

You're saying that your 3 IV babies are HP/ATK/DEF and HP/DEF/SpA, yeah? That's because the Destiny Knot takes a total of 5 IVs from the parents...and they're not guaranteed to be the perfect ones. In your examples, the Destiny Knot is passing on the three perfect IVs you're getting (HP/Atk/Def and HP/Def/SpA, respectively), but it's taking the first parent's imperfect Speed IV and the second parent's imperfect Special Defense IV (a total of 5 IVs). The sixth IV is always random, so you have a 1/32 chance of getting a 31 there.
My great weakness is the love I have for the fair sex, and pretty much all my trouble comes from or can be traced to that charming source.
