Pokémon IV floor?


#1

What is the Pokémon IV floor for guaranteed lucky friend trade?


#2

I have no idea but most the ones I got coming into low 90s


#3

12-12-12 for all lucky Pokemon


#4

Thanks, @Necrozmadabest, so if we are lucky friend, we’d better trade Pokémon with IV 80% or lower to have guarantee higher IV lucky Pokémon for both of us after lucky trade, right?


#5

IVs in the beginning dont matter, as long as you are willing to trade it like this
But yup, under 80% you will be sure it gets better


#6

Thanks, me and my lucky friend are planning to trade some meta Pokémon, like 80% IV Shadow Ball Mewtwo.


#7

Thats a great investment, even if the IVs stay the same you still get reduced price


#8

I didn’t know anything about how trades effect IVs. A friend and I swapped 100 IV Shellder and Growlither (we had two of each) and the IV plummeted! lol


#9

TLDR:
IVs always get rerolled, floor is based on your friendship: 1, 2, 3 and 5 (I think?) for each friendship stage
About as good as catching a weather boosted Mon when trading with a bestie
Lucky trades have a floor of 12, doesnt matter if they were triggered by lucky friends or just random luck

Exactly, can’t get worse than what we currently have, stardust and IV-wise
