Guide to breeding pokemon with Perfect or near-Perfect IVs ver 1.1

Thanks to Gen 6's new breeding mechanics, obtaining perfect Pokemon is now possible and doesn't even require a huge amount of work. As always, attaining total perfection is optional and is not really necessary in most cases, but it can be done and some people are going to want to do it.


Preparation:

- You must have beaten the game so you can access the Friend Safari, which is in Kiloude City

- You need a friend safari that has dittos. Dittos caught in the friend safari always have at least two perfect IVs, are are indispensable when breeding. Unfortunately, the word has gotten out that friend safaris with Dittos are valuable, so some people have become stingy with them. Note that the person does not need to KEEP you on their friend list, they just need to see you online once, afterwards they can delete you and you can still continue to access the Ditto friend safari to your heart's content.

- Once you have a friend safari with Dittos, go into it and catch a lot of them. This is super easy, put a Magikarp that only knows Splash (use the move deleter, you can fish for them with the Old Rod on Route 3) and holds the smoke ball in your first slot. If you find a Ditto, just let it transform into magikarp, switch to someone with False swipe, and start throwing pokeballs. If the wild pokemon is not a Ditto, just run away. The goal is to get a ditto having every nature (except all the neutral ones). If you can't find a specific one, you can try using a ralts that only knows growl and has synchronize and the right nature instead of the Magikarp.

- Once you have a set of Dittos, take them to the IV checker in the Kiloude City pokemon center (see below for how to understand what he tells you). Use the marking system to track what perfect IVs they have. There's 6 marks and 6 stats, so just mark them off in this order: HP, Attack, Defense, Special Attack, Special Defense, Speed. If any of them have 3 or more perfect IVs, those ones will be especially useful, but 2 is good enough.

- Catch a fletchling (with its non-hidden ability Big Pecks) and evolve it. Teach it Fly. This will be your egg hatcher. When this pokemon is in your party, eggs hatch twice as fast. It can also fly you between Kiloude and Camphrier, which you'll be doing constantly.

- You must obtain the Everstone from an NPC in Geosenge Town, and the Destiny Knot from an NPC in Cyllage City.

- The Power Items (Power Brace, Power Band, Power Anklet, etc) from the Battle Maison are useful but optional, you can make do without them, it will just take slightly longer.


Breeding Basics: (IVs, Hold Items, Natures, Abilities, Egg Moves)

- Every pokemon has 6 IVs, one for each stat, and they range from 0 to 31. These are determined when a pokemon is born (or encountered in the wild) and can never be changed. An IV of 31 is considered a perfect IV, as it gives optimal stats.

- Under normal circumstances IVs are chosen randomly, but when breeding you can pass down IVs from parents to babies. There are many ways to manipulate what gets passed down, and if done properly, you can get 5 perfect IVs fairly easily.

- Under normal circumstances, babies inherit 3 random IVs, each chosen from a random parent. However, if the parents hold certain items, these passed IVs can be manipulated. Holding a Power Item guarantees that parent will pass down that stat, for example if the mother holds Power Anklet her Speed IV will always be passed down. However, only one parent can hold a Power Item, you cannot pass 2 IVs this way. If a parent holds the Destiny Knot, 5 IVs are inherited instead of 3.
