If you breed 2 perfect IV pokes is a perfect IV poke guaranteed?

The odds depend on the way you're breeding. If you use the Destiny Knot, then two 6IVs will produce another 6IV about 1 in 32 times (SalvadorWarhol was on the right track, as IVs only go up to 31, but since 0 is a possible IV, there are a total of 32 possibilities). If you're not using the Destiny Knot... well, just use the Destiny Knot. Otherwise you've got a 1/32^3 chance. Which is really, really low.

thanks guys, would giving destiny knot to both parents increase that chance at all? or would the 2nd knot overlap the 1st creating a possibility of 2, 0's?

Using two has the same effect as just one, I've heard.

Most Pokemon do not need 6 perfect IVs so it's unnecessary work unless you're breeding for a mixed attacker.
