I am starting to get into breeding on Pokemon X and I don't know a whole lot about what I am doing. I have managed to put together multiple lightning rod pichus with volt tackle of various natures but I have no idea as to what the IVs and stuff are. I know there is a person you can talk to in one of the towns to see what the IVs are but I don't know which town that is. I am not too incredibly far into the game atm, I only just got the 2nd badge. I am aware of some of the finer details such as the Masuda method. I was wondering if there is anything else I should know about breeding? The main thing I am curious about is how people are getting perfect IVs. Are they taking pokemon that already have 31 in a stat they want and breeding the pokemon while it is holding a destiny knot? Any tips would be most appreciated. I also have a handful of the pichus left if anyone is interested in getting one. FC and safari info is in my sig if anyone is interesting in it, --- Black 2 friend code: 2066 0570 4228 3ds code: 3325 2516 3488 Fire Safari with Growlithe, Slugma, Elite 4 not beat

Breeding for competitive play is mostly a postgame thing. Don't worry about it for now and just enjoy your first playthrough as you don't need perfect pokemon. Even if you insist, it'll be near impossible for you to do so anyway since you don't have the resources yet.

The guy who tells you your perfect IVs are found in the last town in the game. You can also (with great difficulty) catch Dittos there (which have 2 perfect ivs) and then use those for breeding. I wouldn't worry about breeding till you get there. --- Black 2 FC: 0605 5786 7352 Y FC: 5343 8947 6844

I mainly wanted to collect tips and stuff so that I can have them ready for when I do start to really get into breeding. That way I am not scrambling to figure the whole thing out when I start breeding. --- Black 2 friend code: 2066 0570 4228 3ds code: 3325 2516 3488 Fire Safari with Growlithe, Slugma, Elite 4 not beat
