Default Should I use this Houndoom?

I caught a shiny Houndoom, so I'm thinking of using it, does it have good Ivs and a good nature? If yes, in what Stat should I EV train it? Or what moves should I teach it?

Sp atk-60

According to IV Calculater relating to the Houndoom at hand I'll post it's minimal and maximum potential IV as follows (this is assumng no EV points have been used yet)-

HP- 29-31
Atk- 25-28
Def- 14-17
Sp.Atk- 20-23
Sp.Def- 19-22
Spd- 28-31

This is a better than average Houndoom, though it's obvious that it's Defense is a little Lax. The nature is benificial in every way seeing how Houndoom has a better base Sp. Atk than Attack, meaning you should be using Sp. Atk anyway. I'd use it if I were interested in Houndoom in the first place, but I think you should use if even if you just like it. I'm not big on being a stat *****.

Iv EV training, I'm not sure about what Houndoom's capabilites and purposes are, but I would personally raise it in Speed and Sp. Atk, maybe a little in HP, though that might not be the best idea. The defenses wil hold on their own, and Houndoom will get KO'd if hit by a solid physical move anyway, so raising it in Defense is pointless.

There's my input. Whether you wanna use it or not is up to you, though choose not for it's stats, but if you like it or not.

It's level is too low to gain an accurate reading from it's IVs. Use the daycare to level it up to 50 or have an IV battle over wifi and we'll be able to give you more precise stats.
