What's the stat difference between a Pokemon hatched with 6IV to a Pokemon whose IVs are from Hyper Training?



  • This would be the first time I would attempt to get a 'perfect' Pokemon, but there is one mechanic that puzzles me so: Hyper Training. I would like to know if there is a range of difference between the stats of a Pokemon that was hatched with 6IV when compared to another Pokemon that was Hyper Trained.

    Suppose I have two Pokemon— say, a Dunsparce— that are identical in every which way (EVs, Nature, etc.) except for how they attained the 6IV status. One from breeding, and the other, Hyper Training. Would this result in a big stat difference between them once I got them to later levels? Or would they ultimately have the same stats in the end?



  • Not ultimately. They will immediately gets same stats when you hyper-trained a Pokemon.

    Leveled stats only gets affected by https://www.serebii.net/games/evs.shtml , which can be increased by battling wild Pokemons / using Vitamins and Feathers, and decreased by using certain Berries (I suppose the Vitamins / Feathers / Berries works same as Sword / Shield, but I'm not completely sure). Information for SV are found at https://www.serebii.net/scarletviolet/effortvalues.shtml .

    However, quote from https://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Hyper_Training (emphasis mine):

    Rather than actually changing a Pokémon's IVs, Hyper Training sets a modifier for the game to treat that stat as if it had an IV of 31. As a result, it affects neither the type of Hidden Power the Pokémon has nor the IVs it can pass down when breeding.

    Since (as of now) SV doesn't have Hidden Power so you don't need to worry about it, though if you want to breed 6IV by using hyper-trained Pokemons (which I personally think there's no reason to do so), they won't get transferred by breeding.
