"Individual values, also known as determinant values (both often shortened, respectively, to IVs and DVs), are the Pokémon analogue to genes.
They are instrumental in determining the differing stats of Pokémon, most specifically of the same species."

It is basically breeding to achieve the best desired IV's/stats in a Pokemon.

Say for example you wanted...Oh I don't know, say a Marowak with the largest possible Atk or Spe stats, you would have to breed two Marowak with high Spe and Atk stats.
Each parent contributes two stat IV's to the child...I think it's random. Don't quote me on that.

I am still new, but hopefully I wasn't totally wrong.
"Articuno used Mind Reader
Walrein used protect
Maveric withdrew Walrein
Maveric sent out Electivire
Articuno used Sheer Cold
Electivire fainted"

"Ha, what are the odds?!"

"I hate you..."

A possible total of 3 IVs can be passed from both parents combined.

So I could inherit all three or none from either parent, and possible less than three total if the game chooses the same stat twice and a row. The other stats are random.
