This is by far the easiest way to get Perfect / Flawless Pokemon with exactly the IVs you need without spending all day trying to breed one out!!!!
– Destiny Knot
– Hatching O-Power (optional but helps BIG time)
– Have beated the Elite 4 in order to access to Kiloude City, (optional, but the IV Judge is in the Pokemon Center which makes this ALOT easier)
– Decent pool of multiple Pokemon with superior IVs (Friend Safari guarantees at least 2 perfect stats)
– “Scouting Parents”: Gather two breedable Pokemon with different IVs from each other. Know both their exact IVs or atleast have narrowed idea of the IV ranges.
For this example we have 2 Pokemon with these IVs:
Male: 31 / 31 / 31 / 31 / 31 / 31
Female: 9-10 / 22 / 5 / 18 / 24 / 15
Put both your “Scouting Parents” into the Day Care. For this example we’re going to use a male Pokemon with six perfect IVs and a female Pokemon with crappy random IVs (as shown above). One parent must hold an Everstone and the other must hold a Destiny Knot. Bike around until the Day Care Man is facing the road and has a lovely egg waiting for you…. Reject the egg and save.
Keep bicycling around until he has another egg waiting. Collect it, hatch it, then note its nature and characteristic. We need to find out this baby’s IVs. Take it to to the IV Judge in Kiloude to figure out if it has any perfect IVs (max is of course 31). If you couldn’t figure out what it got from your Perfect Scouting Parent, go to the Battle Institute afterwards to check its exact IVs (I hate cabs but if you are easily lost it’s cheaper taking a cab to it from the Northern half of Lumiose City).
Start figuring out the baby’s inheritance.
In this example, our newborn baby has: 9 / 14 / 5 / 31 / 31 / 31
This means the baby inherited the flawless Sp.Atk, Sp.Def, and Speed from our perfect male Pokemon. The baby inherited crappy HP and Defense from the female Pokemon. The IV not inherited was 14 in Attack (which was the random stat the destiny knot didn’t transfer this time).
I’ll make note of the inheritance using a bold F if the female passed the IV down and an M for the male IV passed down. The wildcard IV is X.
F / X / F / M / M / M
Soft reset the game (using L+R+Start). Reload your save from the point where you had just rejected the egg. Go into the Day Care building and look in your PC storage for a couple matching the inheritance you need (In this example, the inheritance is great for a special sweeper). I need a female with perfect stats in HP and Defense so then I withdraw my desired female. It’s recommended that breeders use the marking system to note which Pokemon have perfect IVs in which category (Circle for HP, Triangle for Atk, etc) this makes it easier to figure one which one to substitute in. The male Pokemon is fine for me to keep using. Place the new couple for your desired species with Everstone & Destiny Knot equipped in the Day Care. Bike around for an egg. Collect it, hatch it, and take it to the IV Judge. It should have inherited the same IV distributions that you earlier found.
If you did not get an ideal inheritance: Reject the egg and set things up again.

Notes: Gender didn’t seem to change inheritance, but the baby may switch genders if you’re using different gender ratios than from the scouting parents.
You don’t have to use a 6 flawless father; just have different numbers from each other as otherwise, if both parents have 9 in attack, you can’t tell which one passed the stat down.
You don’t have to reject the egg in the beginning. I stopped doing that and this trick still worked. The inheritance was apparently set the moment I collected the previous egg.
