    I've recently begun breeding pokemon for competitive battles, meaning I'm looking for that perfect combination of nature and IVs. It's a time consuming process and I'm wondering how I should invest my efforts.

    Let's say I'm training a pokemon that will be a special attacker. Is it more important that I find an egg with a nature that boosts Sp.Atk, or one that has a flawless 31 in the Sp.Atk IV?

    Alternately, is it best to keep a pokemon with great overall IVs but a hindering nature, or should I stick with my boosting nature no matter how lousy the IVs look?
