'''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 {{IV}}s 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 {{DL|Hau'oli City|Mall|Hau'oli City shopping mall}} on [[Melemele Island]] and the [[Pokémon Day Care]] on [[Route 5]] in [[Kanto]] after the player has become the {{pkmn|Champion}} of the {{al|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 {{m|Hidden Power}} the Pokémon has nor the IVs it can pass down when {{pkmn|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 [[Stats judge|Judge program]] in the PC.
