Pokemon Go 100 IV: How rare are perfect stats and how do you get them?

Finding a Pokemon with perfect IVs is very rare, so it’s no wonder trainers are desperate to find them in Pokemon Go.

Trainers catch Pokemon in their millions across the world, always hoping to find that one with 100% IVs. Pokemon Go players can easily catch more than 1,000 without coming across one.

Before we delve into how to put the odds in your favor, if you’re unaware of what IVs mean and how they compare to other stats, such as CP, you can read our article which explains the differences between IVs and CP in Pokemon Go.

Now, for those of you that know exactly what IVs are, let’s look at the big question: what are the chances of finding a 100 IV Pokemon? The short answer is that it depends but we break down each scenario below.

Lucky Pokemon Perfect IVLucky Pokemon are one way to increase your chances of perfect stats…

Perfect IV odds in the wild?

There’s a one in 4,096 chance, or 0.0244% portability, of finding perfect IVs from a wild catch. There is also a Weather Boosted wild catch though, which gives you a significant odds boost.

Instead of the 1 in 4,096 chance, a Weather Boosted catch increases your odds to a 1 in 1,728 chance. This is still very unlikely but still drastically better than before. Fortunately, there are ways to further improve those odds.

There are various other methods of obtaining Pokemon and these all provide better chances of finding that one highly sought after 100% IV Pokemon. Firstly, let’s take a look at Shadow Pokemon.

Shadow Pokemon and 100 IVs

When Team Rocket brought Shadow Pokemon into Pokemon Go they also gave trainers a much greater chance of perfect stats. While it might be costly for some species, purifying a Shadow Pokemon gives each IV an automatic boost of two.

That means if a Shadow Pokemon has, for example, 2 attack, 5 defense and 8 stamina, upon purification it will become 4 attack, 7 defense and 10 stamina. So, if you can find a Shadow Pokemon with an IV of 13 for each stat (or more) then you essentially have a perfect IV Pokemon.

You have a 3 in 16 chance of a particular stat being 13 or more. This means you have a 1 in 152 chance (just less than 1%) of getting IVs of 15 across the board every time you capture a Shadow Pokemon.

Trading Pokemon is a good way to take low IV Pokemon and make them more powerful…

Doesn’t trading increase the chances of perfect stats?

Yes, it does. Trading Pokemon between friends is a great way to increase the odds of finding perfect IVs. It’s also a good way to boost IVs, too.

With that said, the odds still aren’t great, and depend on your level of friendship. The odds are as follows:

  • Good friend trade: 1 in 3,375
  • Great friend trade: 1 in 2,744
  • Ultra friend trade: 1 in 2,197
  • Best friend trade: 1 in 1,331

This means if you’re relying on trading Pokemon to find those perfect stats across the board, you could be waiting a while.

What about eggs, quests and raid bosses?

Hatching Pokemon from eggs, earning them in quests or defeating them as a Raid Boss all provide the same chance of obtaining a 100 IV Pokemon – 1 in 216. That is because each stat is guaranteed to be 10 or more.

Pokemon hatched from eggs will have a minimum of 10 IVs across the board…

Lucky Pokemon the best way to get 100% IV

Should you be fortunate enough to catch a lucky Pokemon, there will be a 1 in 64 chance it has perfect IVs. You will also have a 1 in 64 chance if you decide to trade them, also. There’s a reason they are called ‘lucky’ Pokemon.

Thank you to Titleist12 for doing the initial research and sharing the findings. It should be noted that Niantic can change these percentages at any given time but haven’t to our knowledge in the last several months.

Best Type 63 loadout for Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War

The Type 63 is capable of dishing out some incredible damage thanks to its methodical firing pattern and excellent precision. Here are all the attachments you should be using when running and gunning with the Type 63. 

If you’re a fan of Black Ops Cold War’s Tactical Rifle class or a player that prefers a more methodical approach to combat, then the Type 63 is one weapon you’ll want to focus on leveling up. While burst fire weapons like the M16 and AUG continue to dominate the game, there have been a number of players picking up this reliable rifle. 

Despite its slower rate of fire, this tactical rifle is capable of killing an enemy in just two shots (one body shot and one headshot). The Type 63 is a great option for those that want the damage of a sniper, but wish to be more active in their playstyle. If you have a good trigger finger and decent aim, you’ll definitely want to add the Type 63 to your collection. 

In order to help you get the most kills with the Type 63, we’ve put together a loadout that you can use to crush the competition.

Best Type 63 loadout

Type 63

The Type 63 is one of the most lethal weapons in the entire game.

Here are the best attachments you can use on your Type 63 in Black Ops Cold War, filling every slot thanks to the Gunfighter wildcard:

  • Millstop Reflex 
  • Spetsnaz Compensator 
  • 18.3” Strike Team
  • KGB Target Designator 
  • Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip
  • 30 RND
  • Gru Elastic Wrap
  • KGB Pad

While you can still make a decent Type 63 loadout without the extra three attachment slots given by the Gunfighter wildcard, the extra kit makes this build extremely comfy. First up is the Millstop Reflex. This is one of the only optics available that doesn’t clutter the screen or provide a great deal of magnification. 

While the 2.0x and 4.0x optics may give you greater precision on the game’s larger maps and modes, the vast majority favor close-quarter engagements. This is also why the 18.3” Strike Team barrel has been chosen. This handy attachment increases your fire rate by 11%, allowing you to get out more shots onto the target. 

It also increases your damage by 9%. While this may seem like an incremental increase, it does make a noticeable difference when combined with a higher rate of fire. To alleviate the Type 63’s horizontal/vertical recoil, we’ve attached both the Spetsnaz Compensator and Spetsnaz Ergonomic Grip.

The Type 63 may not be the most popular gun, but its high DPS makes it a worthy pick.

These attachments make the Type 63 incredibly accurate across all ranges, allowing you to beam opponents with laser-like precision. The bullets will always form in a tight circle around your target, so there’s no need to wrestle with any recoil. Simply point and shoot. 

As you may know by now, visibility in Black Ops Cold War can be rather poor. Even if you follow our visibility guide, there will still be times where you get caught out by pesky head glitches. Fortunately, the KGB Target Designator adds 60% Reveal Distance when aiming down sights. 

The Gru Elastic Wrap is one of the most important attachments as it increases ADS time (30%), Flinch Resistance (90%), and enables aiming while going prone. Combine this with the Sprint to Fire and additional Aim Walking Movement Speed of the KGB Pad, and you have an incredibly mobile rifle that is capable of blistering fast kill times.
