How long does perfect IV breeding take on average?

I'm trying to breed perfect Eevees, and it's taking me significantly longer than Solosis did. I'm just wondering.

For 5IVs, about 2-3 hours tops.

For 6IVs, a millennium and a half.

That's not even a hyperbole.

~30 minutes or so starting from scratch with the required tools. (No egg move specific breeding, etc).

In any case, no one poke should take you over 1-2 hours, bad RNG, etc aside.

Normally, a couple hours tops, but Eevee has that awful gender ratio, so good luck.

That too.

87% male gender ratio..... Getting a perfect female could take awhile.

Ok. Well, I'm not in a huge hurry, I can be patient.

All the following things will make the entirety of the breeding process longer:

- steps taken to hatch (different for different species)
- egg moves
- uneven gender ratio
- functional gender differences (Meowstic, Nidoran, etc)
- number of abilites / breeding for HA
- all male / genderless

And of course, the almighty RNG can make the whole process range from 20 minutes to possibly a day or more.

It's easier the more pokemon you have with good IV's. Breed 2 pokemon with 5 max IV's and it shouldn't take too long to get what you're looking for. Egg moves are another story though.

Eevees are a pain to breed because they have a skewed male:female ratio and their eggs take forever to hatch. In general it takes about 30 minutes to an hour to get a 5-6 IV baby if the RNG isn't being a jerk, provided you've acquired some good male breeders from other breeding projects.
