    Hello I am having an issue with the Server reading my IVs where it concerns Hidden Power.

    When I am in the teambuilder, I am trying to give my Xerneas Hidden Power Rock and it gives the correct IVs.

    But when I am in a battle it shows as Hidden Power Ghost.

    Xerneas must have 3 perfect IVs (31) or something

    The only problem with that statement is that my first screenshot contradicts it. My Xerneas has a 30/30/31/31/30/30 IV spread which is a Hidden Power Rock spread.

    30/30/31/31/30/30 only has two 31 no? So the server gives it another 31 when you log on

    Why? Does this mean I can't have Hidden Power Rock on Xerneas?

    Ok that fixed it but there is still a bug because I got that original spread when I hit Hidden Power and chose Rock. Meaning that the spread retrieved by Rock gives Ghost.

    The Android client forces the Xerneas to have 3 31 IVs by turning its Speed IV to 31. This changes the Xerneas so that it can be used, but has the effect of making its Hidden Power be Ghost-typed.

    This goes back to the report I posted - if all clients, including Android, made the default IV selection for HP Rock be 31 HP / 31 Atk / 30 Def / 31 SAtk / 30 SDef / 30 Spd, this would be resolved.

    @OP, make sure you have the most recent version of the Android client, and then use the "Manual IV" option, and set your IV combination to the combination I listed above.
