A larger answer; You have a few ways you can check the IVs of your Pokemon, the Method mentioned by Toujours is one of the more time consuming but at the same time easier ways to do it if you have access to either an AR or had prepared before hand.

Another way you can check is to set up a mock battle between yourself on two se[erate DS's using two different current Generation games. You can set the rules so the Pokemon auto level to 50 and then use thier calculated stats from that on one of the IV Calculators found across the internet. These calculators give more accurate results IF you go to the IV Checker and input what he tells you as well.

These are the two most used ways to check IVs. I believe you can also upload the Pokemon to Pokecheck and they can give you an IV for the Pokemon. There may be other sites like that as well.
