Am I doing something wrong with breeding

#1GoldSupersonicPosted 11/11/2013 6:40:32 AM
So I'm using 2 5iv pokes one holding destiny knot and the other holding everstone, with same stats to get more.


but instead of getting more 5 iv I'm getting pokes with 1-3 iv sometimes 4. What gives I thought I was guarantee 5 iv getting passed down with same iv parents had

Parents combined have 12ivs. Destiny knot chooses 5/12

5 iv's are passed down from both parents, not only from the parent that holds the destiny knot

Probably getting 2 of the parents bad ivs, so unless the parents have exactly the same perfect IV's, chances are you're going to get at least 3 good IV's

You have to be doing something wrong if you're getting less than 4 IV pokemon if both your parents have the same 5 IVs.

If they have different 5 IVs (say one is missing attack and the other is missing speed), even then the lowest you'd be getting is 3 IVed pokemon.

If not, just keep at it. It's a 1/6 chance of getting a 5 IV kid.

If you have perfect 6iv Pokemon for male and female it should always be 5ivs perfect/imperfect
but lets say you have a male scyther and female scyther both perfect except for speed. You can have destiny knot choose speed from both of them which will leave you with a 3iv ya digg??

Thing is I'm using 2 pokes that have an iv of 31/x/31/31/31/31 so with destiny knot if it chooses 5 out of 12 iv why are the babies coming out with 1-3 iv instead of always 5 iv

And 3 iv I can understand with that logic but 1-2 iv really

It's a chance. Not always a guarantee.

I have a 6 IV'd Noibat breeding with a 5 IV'd Noibat and I don't even get 5 IV'd noibats all the time but the chances are much higher than breeding with 2 parents with 5 IV's. Hell, you'd get babies with just 2 perfect IV's. It's all luck, really.

Then you're doing something wrong. Either your parents don't have the IVs you think they have or Destiny Knot is not equipped.

Yeah I'm sure they have same iv and holding destiny knot does it matter if poke are different species or not cause I'm using male agron with female kangaskan
