i was told that I was going to get a 31-31-31-31-31-31 Brave Yveltal

but at the end I got a 31.31.30.31.30.30 one instead. I told the trader about this and he said that he thought it was perfect 6 IV (even though stuff like the IV checker exists)

Would you consider this a scam or a small mistake?

It's only a scam if he refuses to take it back.

Not a scam, there is absolutely no difference between 30 and 31 at level 50. It has the exact same stats as a 6IV one.

This used to be true but now they can clone your Pokemon then give it back and fein innocence.

It depends on whether you can receive your old pokemon back or not, and whether they later trade copies of your pokemon that they may have cloned or not.

The best way to deal with this is to talk to the poster via the trade thread (or PM) and see if they want to trade back with you.

technically, the difference between an iv of 30 and 31 at level 50 is 4 evs, which can make a small difference especially if you use complex ev spreads

Meh, if he clones and trades back, he hasn't swindled you out of anything but time. It wouldn't be entirely scam by definition. Dishonest, yes. But ultimately unharmful.

Only when uninvested. You can never reach max stats with 30 IV

It's not a scam if he honestly didn't know, it was more of a small mistake. If you traded something really important for it and you would rather have a 6IV one, ask him to trade back so you can get a different one from someone else. If he won't trade back, then that's a problem.
