IV Breeding Issues?

  1. I'm following Terotrous's guide on how to breed pokemon for good IV's, I'm only going for 3 perfect IV's, rather than all 6, but I'm using his method anyway. If you haven't seen it, here's a link:

    So, I have taken an Abra, and bred it with a modest Ditto, while it held an everstone. Worked on the first try. The offspring was a modest Abra.

    Next I took that babie, and gave it the everstone, while I had it breed with a Ditto that had a perfect Sp. Atk stat, and made sure it held a power lens to carry that stat over. So far so good. The offspring was a modest Abra with 31 Sp. Atk IV's.

    But here's where it got weird. I took that baby, and gave it the everstone, while I bred it with a (Japanese) Ditto with two diffrent IV's, but it had 31 IV's in it's Speed stat, so I gave it a power anklet to carry that stat over.

    Now I'm getting random Abras, with totaly random IV's. It is still modest, but not even the Speed stat is perfect. I have nearly a box full of Abras now so I don't think I'm just really unlucky because at least the Speed stat should be carrying over right?

  1. Well, XDaylon, it might be because that Japanese ditto, did in fact, NOT have perfect 31 IV's in Speed.
