  1. It is a 50% chance.

  2. If one parent is holding the Power item, then the baby is guaranteed to have that IV. If both parents are holding a Power item, only one of those IVs is guaranteed (50% chance of each).

  3. Before HG/SS the Everstone only worked when held by females or Ditto. The Power items work for any Pokemon, but only from HG/SS onward.

GameFreak should change so that we can get IV from power items from both parents :<
