People often specify whether IVs are perfect or imperfect.
Perfect = 5IV in the right Spread
Imperfect = 5IV without right Spread
Flawless = 5IVs in right spread with 0 in the non desired stat


Sorry but I think it's wrong


I agree, surely perfect means 6IVs at 31 regardless of what build they want.

Well it depends on how you interpret "perfect". In a lot of cases, a 5IV correct spread pokemon is slightly more "beneficial" than a 6IV pokemon in battle.

For example, a 5IV pokemon that is a Sp Atk sweeper have no need for its Atk stat. And having a low Atk IV help makes it even lower. So whats the point for it? In cause the pokemon got confuse status, and hit itself. It it has a lower Atk, it will do less damage to itself.

There are cases where 6IVs are needed for a pokemon in battle, such as a Mix-Sweeper that use both SpA and Atk.

Additionally, not all pokemon want IV that is 31. Say if you want to put Gyro Ball on a Steelix. Then the IV you would aim for is actually 0 in Speed.

So in this regard, I think both of you are correct. But just missing a few details you guys forgot to add. :)
OBJECTION!!! Your testimony stinks!
