PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

So when I breed my Pokemon I try to get the offspring the same nature and characteristic in hopes that it would double max out a certain stat.

Like for example my Electrivire is Proud of its Power (atk) and has Adamant nature (atk). Does grouping the two make any difference or am I just wasting stats and should aim for a different characteristic to its nature?

And anyways, even if you have perfect IVs and a good Nature, you're not assured to win..

These characteristic is actually telling you how many Individual Values the Pokemon has. THe characteristic doesn't only mean that the IV is for a specific stat, it just indicates which stat is highest (if all IV's are 31, it will randomly indicate a characteristic)

Also, look Here to learn more about IV's and what the characteristics mean.
Anyways, here's how many IV's a characteristic indicates a Pokemon has:
