Checking your IVs

- The IV Checker can be found in the Kiloude City Pokemon Center. He tells you a ton of information about your pokemon, and understanding it all is essential to creating good pokemon.

- The first thing he tells you is the overall potential of your pokemon. This is simply a measure of all of your IVs added together and is not particularly helpful. "Outstanding" is the highest grade that isn't totally perfect.

- Next, he will tell you your best IV or IVs. All of the IVs he mentions here have the same value, and are higher than any of your other IVs.

- Next, he will tell you how good those stats are. If he says "Stats like that, they can't be beat", it means they are 31. So if he named HP, Attack, and Defense, then said they can't be beat, you have 3 perfect IVs.

- Finally, if you have any IVs that are 0, he will mention them at the end. Otherwise, the last part is the end of what he tells you.

- Go to the Pokemon Storage System afterwards and use the Marking System to mark the perfect IVs on your pokemon. This will be useful when breeding.


Chain Breeding for the Perfect Pokemon:

- The key to creating a perfect Pokemon is chain breeding. The basic idea is to incrementally create better and better babies each generation and have them become the new parents.

- Note that this part of the guide assumes you want perfect IVs in all useful stats, but there are some rare instances where 0 is desired instead of 31. You can pass 0s in exactly the same way as 31s, you just can't easily catch Dittos that have them and will likely have to roll them randomly.

- The first step is to obtain a pokemon of the species you want. The only thing about this Pokemon that matters is its ability. If you want the hidden ability, you must get a hidden ability pokemon to start with. If you want one of the standard abilities the ability does not matter either.

- Next, we're going to breed for Nature and Egg Moves. Select the Ditto that has the appropriate Nature, and give it the Everstone, then breed this with your pokemon. If your pokemon and the Ditto have great IVs, you can give your pokemon a power item or the Destiny Knot to speed things up a little, but this is not vital in the long run. The result will be a baby with the correct nature, which will replace your original parent. Note that if you are breeding for hidden ability, you must breed until you get a baby that retains the hidden ability (this will be the case at every step). If you want Egg Moves, you must breed until you get a female. Once you have the female, breed it with the male pokemon that has the egg move you want to hatch a baby with the right nature and egg move. If you want multiple egg moves, you must get another female and continue bringing in the egg moves until you have them all.
