Interesting result on breeding, may already be common knowledge tho .....

I've confirmed (if this wasn't already confirmed) that one parent may pass down four stats while the other may pass down one stat while using Destiny Knot. I've recently bred using:

Male Eevee w/Destiny Knot (Bold)
Max HP, Atk, Sp.Atk, Sp.Df, Spd

Female Growlithe w/Everstone (Adamant)
Max Df, Sp.Atk.

After a few batches of Eggs, one of the Eggs produced:

Male Growlithe (Adamant)
Max HP, Atk, Df, Sp.Df, Spd

Very lucky for me, but it crossed my mind that it was a bit bizarre to already get a Growlithe this good. So I checked out all the stats.

The random stat is definitely Sp.Atk, since both parents have max Sp.Atk and the baby Growlithe does not.

The other stats were passed down via Destiny Knot, and are all maxed on the newborn. So my female Growlithe passed down only its Df, while my male Eevee passed down the other four stats.

Just some info I wanted to throw out there. If it seems like it's taking a bit longer to progressively get better Pokemon as you breed, the lesser parent could occasionally be passing down four of its stats. I would think that this is a rare occurrence though.

It's actually possible for a single parent to pass five stats and the other to not pass any.

It's also possible for only three IVs to be passed - if two different IVs are chosen twice each

Cool, so this is very common knowledge then. Figured I'd make a point of it just in case.

This also explains why it took me waaaaay too long to get a good Pangoro .......

Well this explains why I would keep getting 5 31iv -defense on my Fennekins from a parent with the same spread so many times breeding it and a 6 iv Sandshrew.
