A perfect IV (of 31) is ideal, but IVs of 20-30 are acceptable, IMO. A 'mon with a perfect Attack IV would have the "Likes to thrash about" characteristic; a perfect Speed IV should display "Alert to sounds". But just because those characteristics are on the screen doesn't mean the IV is perfect, as that IV could be 26, 21, 16, 11, 6 or even 1.

To pass down IVs, have the parent with the desired IV hold a Power item. They can be bought at the Battle Subway/PWT for 16 BP each:
-Power Weight: HP
-Power Bracer: Attack
-Power Belt: Defense
-Power Lens: Special Attack
-Power Band: Special Defense
-Power Anklet: Speed
