I'm soft resetting for a good Zygarde and got these IVs. I'm running a standard defensive tank set on it and I got decent IVs, although I'm not sure if it can be detrimental.

Zygarde-Complete @ Leftovers
Ability: Power Construct
EVs: 252 HP / 4 SpD / 252 Def
IVs: 24 HP / 27 Atk / 16 SpA
Impish Nature
- Thousand Arrows
- DRagon Tail
- Rest
- Sleep Talk

Are there any significant interactions that change with these IVs versus a normal 6IV Zygarde set?

Clearing flags, this is fine. If clarity is needed on why: https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/meta/64973/

Special Attack doesn’t matter, because your Zygarde isn’t using any specially offensive moves anyways. HP and Attack are the stats most important to your tank, so you should soft reset for at least perfect IVs in HP. If you really don’t want to, you can just level up your Zygarde to 100 and use either 2 Bottle Caps on it, or 1 Gold Bottle Cap. The easiest way to find them is by saving next to a fishing spot with swirls around it, and fishing. Every time you find anything that isn’t a cap, soft reset. Also, there’s an event going on this month at GameStop where you can get a code for a level 100 shiny Zygarde holding a Gold Bottle Cap. (If you’re playing the Ultra version of Sun or Moon.) So, you could just get that Zygarde, soft reset for an Impish Nature, and use a Gold Bottle Cap on it.

Not exactly what I was looking for, but I never knew that you could fish for bottle caps. Thanks for the info!
