Hyper Training (Japanese: すごいとっくん Amazing Intensive Training) is a method of Pokémon training that allows the player to maximize one or more of a Pokémon's IVs through intensive training. This feature was introduced in Pokémon Sun and Moon. Unlike affection, Hyper Training is effective in link battles.
Hyper Training is conducted by Mr. Hyper in the Hau'oli City shopping mall on Melemele Island and the Pokémon Day Care on Route 5 in Kanto after the player has become the Champion of the Pokémon League. In exchange for a Bottle Cap, he will train one of the player's Pokémon, so long as it has reached level 100. A regular Bottle Cap can increase one of a Pokémon's IVs to 31 (the maximum value), while a Gold Bottle Cap will increase all of a Pokémon's IVs to 31. If an IV is already at 31, it cannot be selected for Hyper Training, and if all of a Pokémon's IVs are 31, Mr. Hyper won't allow that Pokémon to be selected at all.
Rather than actually changing a Pokémon's IVs, Hyper Training sets a modifier for the game to treat that stat as if it had an IV of 31. As a result, it affects neither the type of Hidden Power the Pokémon has nor the IVs it can pass down when breeding. IVs that have been set to 31 via Hyper Training will say "Hyper trained!" rather than "Best" when the Pokémon is judged by the Judge program in the PC.
If a Hyper Trained Pokémon is sent to Pokémon Bank, the stat changes will not be shown. However, if transferred back to Sun and Moon, the Pokémon will still be shown as Hyper Trained, and will still be treated as if it had perfect IVs in the stats in which it was Hyper Trained.
