    I dislike the look of most shinies I would use a regular mid iv pokemon than a shiny mid iv pokemon.

    shinies, could try to minmax for 0Atk/Spe if needed but that does not matter in the long run because Hyper Training is a thing

    IVs and nature dont matter I can buy bottlecaps and mints for cheap, every single shiny is viable (0 IV attack or speed is mental illness)

    Just get the Shiny and then use a golden bottlecap.

    Natures do not matter because mints exist.
    IVs do not matter because bottle caps exist, unless you're trying for 0 IVs for whatever reason.
    Abilities do not matter because capsules and patches exist.
    Egg moves do not matter because they can be passed on through mirror herbs at picnics.

    Therefore the only thing to hunt for now is shininess.

      There are marks and size if you want to get real autistic.

    If I like a shiny, I'll get a shiny. Stats can be fixed now so none of that matters.

    We live in a post mint and bottlecap world, when I go all out on a shiny I breed for a fitting nature and characteristic. Some projects I completed: Naughty "impetuous and silly" shiny Whimsicott, Lonely "strong willed" shiny Volcarona. God bless gen 7 fixed egg rng. I'm currently breeding a Brave "strongly defiant" shiny Paladin the hard way, the first one I got was female 🙁

    Shinies. I have 70-ish bottle caps and 3 gold bottle caps in SV, IV's are trivial to fix. Can't make a non-sparkle-sparkle sparkly.

    I'll try and do perfect IVs but if it's a wild encounter and shiny it's whatever honestly.

    In games I go for average IVs and a non-detrimental nature.

    If I really need any more I just inject.

        I injected nearly everything currently in my Home.
        My entire living formdex is 6IV, including unowns.
        Nobody cares.

    I still breed my pokemon, I know mints exist but I'm autistic about having the actual nature.

    6ivs are pointless on most Pokemon unless you're going for a Mixed set. The 5 in the relevant stats are usually enough.

    In fact in many cases, you'd want 0 for Atk and ESPECIALLY Speed.

    If I want a legend I don't want to shiny hunt, I'll just try to make sure it has the relevant stats and nature in most cases (yes, most of these are fixable now, but I like getting things as flawless as possible.)

    If I'm shiny hunting a legend it depends. Dynamax Adventure I'll take whatever, but if I were to do other methods I'd probably aim for the correct nature because of the above as well.

    For things I breed to use on teams, I usually aim for stats, but if I am aiming for shinies, I try to make them as flawless looking as possible, especially if I want 0 Speed on them.

    Like at least one anon said, most things are fixable in this game thankfully.

    Ideal IVs (6IV isn't useful) and large size.
    Shiny doesn't usually look very good.

    with bottle caps perfect IVs are pointless

    actually perfect IVs are pointless full stop, physical attackers don't care about SpAtk and special attackers want an Atk as low as possible

    And depends on the shiny, whether they look cool or not
