If both parents have HA can they still pass it down?

Of course.


Cool thanks

Was Kinda confused since I read this on serebii(last sentence):

"If the father has got the Hidden Ability, there is a small chance that the offspring will also have their Hidden Ability. However, this only works if you are breeding with a Ditto."

That appears to be incorrect. However, the odds of getting an HA with an HA male and non-HA female are quite bad.

I have a question about IV breeding. I've been reading many guides about IV breeding and many of them differ about one thing: power items. Some say you need them, some you don't. Like guides I've seen on Serebii and here says you need power items to transfer perfect IVs faster, while this guide on IGN (http://www.ign.com/wikis/pokemon-x-y/How_to_Breed_Competitive_Pokemon_from_Scratch) says you don't need them if you're breeding Pokemon from Friend Safaris. Since I already got the Friend Safaris I need for my team and I do not really want to spend time gathering points at the Battle Maison to buy ALL the power item. What is the fastest way to breed 5 IV Pokemon, power items or no power items?

I've a question.

If I pair a 5 IVs pokemon (+destiny knot) with a 2 IVs foreign safari ditto (+everstone) for the shiny chance... how many IVs will I get from the egg?

I read that destiny knot inherits 5 IVs from the parent holding it..
Does that mean I'll get the 5 IVs from local + 1 IVs from foreign?

I have a question about getting a 6 perfect IV pokemon.

Let's say you have 2 Pokemon, both with 5 perfect IVs. They don't have the same 5 perfect IVs though (ex HP/Atk/Def/SpA/SpD and Atk/Def/SpA/SpD/Spe).

If you give one of them a destiny knot and the other a power item on the stat that the other doesn't have (in the example the second pokemon would hold Power Anklet), would this not increase the chances of getting 6 perfect IVs (1/12 chance if this works I believe)?

Who holds the Destiny Knot does not matter, it just means you inherit 5 stats instead of 3.

In this case, it would be random, but most of your eggs would have 2-3 perfect IVs.

As I said, they're optional. They will speed up breeding a little (and they speed up EV training a TON), but the Destiny Knot and Everstone are much more important.

A power item uses up one of your 5 stats.

Thanks! I heard EV training is much faster than super training. I just read on another forum that EV training combined with hordes, Pokerus, and power items, only takes about 5 minutes for each stat. Is that true?

Destiny Knot vs POWER "Items" .. hello well well my curious question is there any difference in making them using Power Items. well besides the fact the Power Item on affect one stat and Destiny Knot "5" , but if i have a Ditto with 3 "Max" IV i guess is it better to use a Destiny Knot or just use 1 of the 3 Max Iv he has and use a Power Item ?
