When focusing on getting through the main story, there's no need to be picky about IVs, as it's quicker to simply level up a Pokemon to improve their stats. However, in order to get through the story quickly, it's best to avoid Natures which lower Attack and Special Attack. It's advantageous to have your Pokemon able to deal as much damage as possible to make sure you can defeat each opponent swiftly.
