I want some trick room Pokemon and I want to see if I can. I also want to lower attacks on physical attackers. Is this possible?

EDIT: If there is a way, please suggest the sword and shield way. I only have those games.

Duplicate, but idk if it counts since it's old:
https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/107377/can-you-raise-lower-ivs
The answers are really weird and they don't make any sense. So, I don't think it counts.
Why would you ask it again if the other one doesn't have an answer? If you think somebody might know the answer to it, then bump the original post, but I don't see a reason to ask the same question again.

I know this is for unanswered duplicates but I think this applies in this case as well. Maybe bump the original post instead of creating another dupe?
I didn't even know that existed. It didn't come up in the dupe section
It is still a duplicate question, even if you didn't see the original question first, and even if you don't like the answers in the original post. Those things don't solve the problem of answers to the same question existing in different places.
However, I changed your question to be for Gen 8 specifically so the two posts don't ask the same thing anymore.

No. IVs cannot be manipulated in any way. They are set when you catch or hatch a Pokemon. In gen seven, you can use a bottle cap to make the game think a mon has a perfect iv in a certain stat even though it doesn't. This is the only way to manipulate ivs, if it even counts anyway. However, there is no way to raise or drop a mon's iv unless you're using something like pksm

What's pksm
A program that directly alters a game's save file
Ah ok. Well I'm certainly not using that lol
There was a glitch when Home first released that altered incoming Pokémon’s IV’s, but to my knowledge has been patched.

When transferring Pokémon from Go or VC to Home or Bank respectively, new IVs are generated for each Pokémon, but only due to the games not having congruent IV systems to other main series games. :P
It's not even easy to get. You have to hack your 3ds to use pksm

Wait, did it actually alter? I thought it would just display wrong ivs?
The only thing you can do with IVs is to increase them using Bottle Caps on Hyper Training.
wym 3ds hacking is easy
Yeah if you know what you're doing. If you don't, press F
