Once again guys, I have made a video aid to try to help any of the newer breeders that are not understanding some of the steps. Let me know if it helps anyone. I was thinking about trying to clean it up a bit if it's helping people.

Can someone explain to me how the power items work with regards to the stats. Does the pokemon need to hold it and battle something specific for it to work, or do you just battle anything while holding it and gain it's power. Do pokemon in your party holding power items gain the boost from the exp share or do they need to be actually used in battle while holding the item. How long do you let the pokemon hold the specific item? when will you know when you can switch to another item? also when the item lowers your speed does it lower it permanently or does the speed power item counter that?

I'm stuck, I caught a safari ditto with HP, Atk, and Speed IV's, and bred adamant nature and the 3 IV's onto a baby Larvitar. I have another ditto with Def and SDef IV's but don't understand how to pass them, while keeping the adamant nature and passing the 3 IV's already on the Larvitar.


if the Larvitar had the nature you'd want you give it the everstone so it will always pass the nature and give the Ditto the destiny knot as it doesn't really matter which parent holds destiny knot it passes down 5 IVs from either parent not just the one holding it


Ah ok, didn't know that. Will it take a few tries to get one with the correct IV's I imagine?


yes just keep at it and make sure to swap out the parents when ever you get better ones (such as hatching one with 4 IVs and swapping it for the one with 3 so it has a better chance to pass more perfect IVs)

I think I must be doing something wrong because I've bred ~20 babies and can't get ones with 4 IVs and am even getting very many with 2.

I currently have:

Joltik - Sp. Def, Def, and Speed holding Everstone
Ditto - Sp. Atk, Atk, and Speed holding Destiny Knot

Is this correct following the guide?


you're doing it right. bad luck i guess

Much thanks TC, I've finally bred a 5IV timid magic bounce female Espeon and HP ice Jolt to lead my IV bred eevee team with a box full of enough 5IV HA eevees to trade for my competitive team ^_^

In fact the ease of IV/EV training this gen, and specifically this guide, are the main reasons why I picked this game up after being poke free since gen 2. Always loved the competitive side but hated the absurd Disgaea like grind required to get good pokes.
