What am I doing wrong? (breeding)

#1Wyvern56Posted 10/25/2013 6:31:31 PM
I have a Timid Magikarp (31 IVs in Attach and HP) with a Destiny knot and a Modest Magikarp (31 IVs in Attack, Defense, and Special Defense) with an Everstone

I want my final product to be a 5 IV Magikarp with Modest so I can breed a Protean Froakie (Through Inkay), but I seem to only get magikarps with 1 or 2 IVs

What am I doing wrong?

How do you plan on getting the 5th IV? You're only attempting to pass 4.

Otherwise, you don't seem to be doing anything wrong. It's still a whole load of luck, Destiny Knot or...knot.

You're not doing anything wrong, just remember that having the Destiny Knot doesn't force your 5 best IVs down, it still picks from them at random. Roughly your chance of getting a 4 max IV Magikarp is about 1/24 (a little better than that actually), so don't expect it to be super easy to get. Just keep your eyes out for improvements in new babies that you can switch in.

If you want, i can give you a froaky with 4 or 5 IVs max and modest nature. Just breed one myself the day before. Just tell me which IVs you need to be 31 and I can take a look at what I got.

Anything would be great! Thank you.

Preferably non-31 in Attack and Sp Defense, but I'll take whatever!

Okay, got one with maxed IVs in HP, Def, SAtk and Speed. Though the nature is timid. Is that okay?
