Some say that legendary Pokemon Always have 3 perfect iv's. but can it be less or more as well? or is it a hacked Pokemon then?
If not has it Always been 3 iv's or was it changed in a later generation?

Pretty sure it is random...

"Although the Ultra Beasts are not Legendary, they share some characteristics with numerous Legendary Pokémon: [...], are guaranteed to have at least three IVs of 31 [...]"

All Legendary Pokemon (as well as Ultra Beasts) have been Guaranteed 3 Perfect IVs ever since Generation 6. Before that, Legendary Pokemon were not guaranteed any IVs.

Also, some pointless trivia, but since some Legendaries have 3 Guranteed IVs, they cannot learn Hidden Power as a Fighting type move. :P

you can check any Pokemon's iv's in X/Y in kilos city pokecenter. For ORAS its battle resort pokecenter.

When did he ask to check IV's?
