    Hey guys - I've seen loads of online videos, guides and explanations of IVs, so I have a pretty good understanding of what they actually are, but I just need some practical advice regarding getting the right IVs for my Pokemon that I'm training for the Battle Frontier.

    For example, I plan to get a Blissey with the following stats:

    Moves: Toxic, Counter, Softboiled, Aromatherapy
    Nature: Bold (Def+, Atk-) or Jolly (Spd+, Sp.A-)
    EVs: Defence (252), Speed (252), Sp.Def (6)

    I'm just wondering - since I know IVs are unalterable after a Pokemon hatches from an egg, does this mean the way the IVs are determined will be completely random or will they be influenced to some degree by the parent Pokemon? (I know I can keep breeding and maintain the nature by equipping an Everstone to the mother). Can you please also give advice on what I should do to get a strong IV combo on this Blissey? Is it even important that I bother - will it make the difference between gold Frontier symbols, or is EV training and a good nature enough?

    Thanks a lot for the help guys.
