I don't know how people IV Breed. I've wasted so much time today

You might want to do some breeding without the Destiny Knot to get the IVs you need to get all 5 31IVs across two parents.

With the Destiny Knot 31/x/x/x/x/x and x/x/31/31/31/31 parents have a greater chance at getting at getting a 31/x/31/31/31/31 child than two x/x/31/31/31/31 parents (its a 1/6 chance ontop of a 1/31 chance if you do it like that). Plus with the 31/x/x/x/x/x you can literally switch it out for a better parents with the missing IV.

Basically Destiny Knot can actually hinder your process if you don't know how it works and when not to use it.

How many ivs on your best male?
Maybe swap out the female and go for the best non-HA male.

5 on my best male but it's not modest. I've been trying for a 5iv modest regardless of ability for a while now.

Is the female modest?

Also which 5 IVs specifically for the M and F?

And what is your best HA Female's IV distribution?

IV breeding is always gonna be luck based. Have to hope in 1/6 chance that iv you dont want isn't carried . If that doesn't work then you have 1/32 that random iv would be 31.Sometimes it will take a few hours or maybe even 5 mins .

Not really. For all we know he could be running SW, a spinblocker, and something else to deal w/ Flying/Levitate Pokemon


I'm extremely tired right now, so forgive me if I'm overlooking something, but what does this have to do with breeding? What's the joke here?


No joke. Breeding for Modest is viable given proper team support

This just in, breeding pokemon is a chore with randomised endpoints.

I've taken about five to ten eggs and fluked into a 6 IV from a pair of 3 IV parents and I've struggled to get a 5 IV after four whole boxes with two 4IV parents.

The lack of control is infuriating.

Yes, its random (5% for 5IVs given two 4IVs) . Yes, it can be time consuming. Yes, for 90+% of battles it won't be worth it. For most pokemon you can just get the IVs in attack stat and Speed fairly easily and consider yourself done.

One thing I've found that makes it more fun is to just raise a 2-4IV Outstanding poke and use them until I care enough to go for 5. EV training takes ~ 6-8 minutes with Power items and getting them levelled is never really a problem with Le Wow, Battle Chateau, etc. and a free Lucky Egg and you can do multiple pokes at once for both.
