Specifically, Rotom -_-

Agh. Frustrating. Breeding is *reasonably* easy with most Pokemon because as you get better Pokemon of both genders, you swap out the parents and increase your odds of passing down more perfect IVs.

But with bloody Rotom, I'm stuck using a Rotom and a Ditto-- the latter of which I only have a 2 IV max one.

My Rotom has 4 IVs, and even then, I got really lucky (my 2 IV Rotom + a Ditto popped out a 4 IV one instead of just a 3 IV one first).

After what feels like dozens of cycles later, I've yet to get the 5 IV Rotom. It takes so damn long to get eggs from the Day Care man ;_;

Any better way to go about it?

RNG abuse. I've never caught on to it. Would you care to explain at all?

I got 3 31/31/31/x/31/31 Rotoms in 2 boxes with a 3 IV Ditto, terrible indeed.

Theres no abuse of the RNG involve. The pokeradar guarantees max IVs after a certain point in the chain. 60+ for 3 max IVs. From there you have about a 1/32 chance or something like that to find a 4 IV Ditto which are pretty good odds.

Pokeradar is an ingame item, not one of those RNG or Pokemon generators.

But in the safari, ditto is guaranteed to have 2 max IVs meaning you have a 1/31 chance of getting 3 max IVs right? Isn't that easier than getting a chain of over 60 to possibly get higher IVs?

You have the same chances to find a 4 iv with the pokeradar so that's why it's better. Unless you think chaining ditto is hard then I don't know what to say.
