If you have a 6/6 Ditto with Destiny Knot and a 5/6 parent isn't it then therefore impossible to get a child less than a 5/6? There would be no way to get a 46 because there are not two stats on the parents less than a best, only one?

Actually, it is possible. As when you have a Destiny Knot equipped to one of the parents, it chooses 5 of the IVs from either parent at random. (Not 6 as people often misbelieve.) This means one of the IVs could end up being the one that isn't 31. On top of that, the last one is random. (Anywhere from 0 to 31.) With the combination you are proposing, there is a chance you will get a 4 IV child.

This happens to many breeders who go for 6 IVs, myself included.

The last stat is always random, so yes, you can get a 4/6 by pulling the imperfect IV from the 5/6 parent and then the random IV also being imperfect. It is, however, impossible to get less than a 4/6, and if you manage to replace the 5/6 with a 6/6 it would be impossible to get less than a 5/6.
