How long does perfect IV breeding take on average?

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.


On the contrary, all of the following will make the entirety of the breeding process easier:

-Flame bodied poke (T-flame, etc) = less hatching time.
- Hatching O-power lvl 3 (can be costly power wise) but effective
- Access to a wide variety of Friend Safari's, hence more available Pokemon/HA abilities.
-Access to a Ditto Safari
-Good IV'ed/ proper egg group Pokemon
-Destiny Knot (pretty much essential)
-Power items (if you need them for specific IV's)
- Everstone

It's also worth noting that if you have a bunch of friends and they all have Hatching power lvl 3 you can essentially enter an O- power spam, since if one of your friends is using the O-power you can use it at a free cost.

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.


Took me a week >->
