I don't know anything about IVs and today I started my shiny hunt for Anorith and I saw some Anoriths with same HP.
Does that means they have the same HP IVs?

Yes it does.

IVs (and EVs) are the only thing that could make a difference in the stats of two same-species Pokemon, provided they are the same level. (in your Anorith's case, it's level 1.)

EDIT- it doesnt mean they have exactly the same HP IVs.
At level 1, 1 or 2IVs don;t make any actual difference.

Don't worry, you get the right idea about IVs as they determine stats. Since they are calculated by the same formula, it is possible that they have the same IVs.
In fact, they would always have the same HP if they had no EVs or the same number of EVs in that stat.


Hope I helped.

Stop showing off with your fancy formulas.
Well it's easier to show it than explain it.
Show off...
Why is your comment flagged? o.o
Probably to make it stand out, people just think it's THAT accurate.
dat flag :x

No, it does not mean they have the same HP IVs. If they have the same HP IVs they'll have the same HP (assuming they all have no effort points), but it doesn't go the other way around - many different HP IVs can result in the same HP value.

For example, a level 5 Anorith with no effort points can have 19, 20 or 21 HP, but its HP IV can be anything from 0-31. Thus, you could have one Anorith with 19 HP that has an HP IV of 0 and another Anorith with 19 HP that has an HP IV of 9. At level 5 they're the same, but at level 100 the first Anorith's HP would be nine points lower than the second Anorith's.

If one Anorith's HP is higher than another's (assuming they haven't been in any battles), though, you can be sure that the one with the higher HP has a higher HP IV.

You can calculate your Pokémon's possible IVs from their stats using an online IV calculator such as this one.
