How do you this? I have the Ditto 5.

I did not really mean 31/31 perfect, just close enough like the ditto 5. Probably my fault for not being specific. Anyway can you make the answer more centered on getting good IV Pokemon with a good nature, using the ditto 5?

Breeding a Pokémon with 6 IVs is never easy. The Ditto 5 are only good for getting started, since they only have one guaranteed IV each. You can use them to pass down natures, but other than that, I would recommend using breedjects or Pokémon from SOS chains (length of 30+) instead, since they should have more perfect IVs.
After that, you’re going to want to have one parent (with your desired nature) hold an Everstone and the other hold a Destiny Knot, and you’ll need to remember how many perfect IVs they have before depositing them in the day-care. Then whenever you hatch a Pokémon with better IVs than the parent of its corresponding gender, replace that parent with the new Pokémon (remember to give it the item). Also note that by “better IVs” I’m only referring to perfect IVs; if the parent has 17 IVs in a stat and the child has 23 IVs in that stat, don’t bother replacing the parent since only perfect stats matter in the end.
Keep in mind that it’s going to take a while even with all this. The Destiny Knot only passes down 5 IVs, so even if you’re breeding with two 6 IV parents (which you probably aren’t) you would still only have a 1/32 chance of getting another 6 IV.

Please read the question more carefully, and change your answer, or hide your answer
I think that SOSing ditto (preferably with synchronize, and can be hard if you don't swap often) is the best way to get a good breeding ditto in SM/USM. If you want an 'easier' way, you could transfer a Ditto from X/Y's friend safari or the R/B/Y/G/S/C virtual console, as Ditto from all of those have 3 guaranteed IVs. :P
What IVs do the Ditto 5 have? EDIT: Never mind.

I went searching and found some information that should be helpful. Just leave a comment if you're having any difficulties and I'll see what I can do.

You don't actually need max IVs. Kind of like how Kyogre doesn't need attack.

Just so you know, there is better ways for breeding Pokemon than the Ditto 5. The Ditto 5 is actually not close to the best Idea for breeding powerful competitive Pokemon.

Buying virtual console version of Gen 1 Pokemon games (I got Pokemon blue) is a very good investment. Not only do all Pokemon transferred over from R/B/Y have their Hidden Ability, they have 3 Ivs of 31. To make it better, the nature of the Pokemon transferred is based on its experience, basically so that you can select its nature. Also, you have Pokemon Ultra Sun or Ultra moon.

What IVs do the Ditto 5 have? Are they worse than 3 perfect IVs?
Depends on the pokemon you are breeding.
Aren't the Dittos' IVs preset? How do they depend on the Pokemon you're breeding?
The Ditto 5 have one perfect IV each, so this answer is correct in the sense they aren't very good for general-purpose IV breeding. None of them have pre-set HP IVs, so they're unhelpful for that purpose as well.
However, you can also inherit 0 Speed and 0 Attack from a couple of them, so they might help you if you're playing TR or want to optimise confusion interactions as well.
