Breeding a 5IV. Terrible luck or doing something wrong?

#1Z_hunter91Posted 12/27/2013 2:59:22 PM
I currently got the two following Pikachu's in daycare:
Male: Def/Sp.Atk/Sp.Def/Speed <--Holding Everstone
Female: Atk/Def/Sp.atk/Speed <--Holding Destiny Know

I am aiming to get a 5IV Pichu with Attack/Defense/Speed/Sp.Atk/Sp.Def, but I can't seem to get one after a day of breeding. So far I'm only getting 4IV Pichu's. Am I doing something wrong with this setup?

I've bred a few 5IV's before in only 2 hours, but this is getting ridiculous and tedious.

Well, it's possible to inherit the attack IV from the male and the special defense IV from the female, so it's very possible that you only get 3IV babies.

Keep at it, and replace the parents if you get any babies with better IVs.

That would explain why I keep getting the wrong/low IV's then I suppose. I never thought of that.

Try breeding a porygon with only 3IV dittos available, it will make you go insane. The last two days have been hell, now I have actually given up for the time being until I can somehow get a better ditto. I am currently breeding two gligars with all perfect IV's except sp. atk and they both have immunity and I still get 4IV children most of the time, one of the last batches almost all had sand veil and stupid me didn't mix in the nature beforehand so now if I'm lucky enough to get 5Ivs it has so far been a unfavorable nature. I'm tempted to switch back to a 4IV parent with the right nature and everstone and take it from there....
