If you want the strong Pokemon, you need the best IVs. This guide explains How To Check Individual Values (IVs) In Pokemon Sword & Shield as although its a vital feature for those looking to breed the ultimate Pokemon team, it’s hidden behind some extensive game progress.
Individual Values, more commonly referred to as IV’s, represents a Pokemon’s stat point potential. It’s what makes a Pokemon unique. For example, you can fight 6 different Pikachu’s and each will be different, because their stats are assigned different IV’s. The higher a Pokemon’s IV’s, the higher its stats will become. A Pokemon with max IV’s is the strongest version of that Pokemon you can find, not including EV training.
How To Check Individual Values (IVs) In Pokemon Sword & ShieldYou can check IV’s in Pokemon Sword & Shield by unlocking the Judge feature. You must first complete the entire game, and then reach rank 4 at the Battle Tower. Once you have reached Rank 4, you can check your Pokemon’s IV at any box, even the one in your inventory.
Open your box, highlight a Pokemon and press the + button for View Stats, then press the + button again for Judge. This will give you a breakdown of a Pokemon’s IV’s. For the perfect Pokemon, you want the overall score to be Best.

The Let’s Go Eevee and Let’s Go Pikachu you can get at the start of Sword and Shield both have perfect IV’s, so that’s a good place to start.
