I have read that special attackers should have 0 IV’s in Attack because of Foul Play damage. I’ve bred several 5IV Pokémon and can not seem to get a 0IV in Attack.
Example: I have a Timid Crobat on my team. It has 5 IV’s at 31 except for Attack.
I think that stat has 2 or 3 IV’s. Would this be good enough to use, or should I have to keep trying for a 0 in Attack?
It really doesn’t matter what your Atk IVs are at all if you’re using a special attacker. While yes, it is technically most optimal to make the Atk as low as it can possibly go, but the chance that the lowered attack will actually make a difference in practice is slim to none. For all intents and purposes, it’s fine if you completely ignore the physical attack stat on your special attackers. Same goes for special attack on physical attackers.
