Default Do you breed for IVs?

I do, but it's not like I've gotten anywhere with it other than a Rhyhorn that I didn't want.

i have other people to do it for me cause it seems to me to take a long time and i dont really want to waste lots of time so its just easier to have other people do it for me and then just trade them something like a shiny

When I used to play, yes, but I didn't go for like the 31 in the stats. I just picked the one out of the 3 with the best IVs.

My only IV bred pokes are a Calm Vaporeon with 31 HP IV and good other IVs and a Jolly Ice Punch Weavile with 31 Speed.

Those were all luck. My second try with the Eevees, for a Timid Jolteon, kept taking Glaceon (the mother)'s horrid Speed IV, and I had to discard about 8 Eevees because of that.

No, at least not yet. Once I get into competitive battling I will, but for now it's too much of a hassle. I know, I'm a lazy bum.

Yes I do, I'm actually a pretty decent breeder I go to Smogon so yeah maybe that's why I breed for IVs .

Nope, considering that I still have to breed for EVs and Natures, I hate breeding for Hidden Powers and IVs. If I ever breeded that too, I think I'll lose interest in the games.

No I caught it myself just after I had the worst luck ever on runescape when I played it.

I'm attempting to do it now, but it takes so much work. I'm not a very patient person, either.
