I'm breeding Skarmories where I should have a 1/12.63 chance of getting a 31/31/31/x/31/31 with Sturdy, and am at 32. HP is the weak link where one parent doesn't have 31. So, naturally, I'm getting x/31/31/x/31/31 all over the place... Then, 13 hatched eggs in, I get one that the IV Checker tells me is 31/31/31/x/31/31 and think "Sweet!... Oh, crap, that means it almost certainly has Keen Eye... Yep, damn it." Now, at 32 eggs, I get a batch where 4 in a row all have 31 in HP, but of course, each of them lacks a 31 in one of the other 4 relevant stats- all of them different ones, too! It's like the game has a fetish for selecting Special Attack as an IV to pass down when I don't want it to. I've heard other stories like this before, and had a problem with the game almost endlessly throwing non-31/31/31/x/31/31 5 IV Adamant Swablus at me a few weeks ago I made a topic about too. Does hax luck apply to breeding, too?

... This gives me lots of Skarmory trade fodder. Almost 1/3 as much as the Swablus.

If you're getting frustrated, you could try to get an Ability Capsule to use on the one with the IV spread that you wanted.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. Might be worth a shot. Too bad I blew >120 BP on other items today. Not too hard to grind for though.

Hmm, compared to the Battle ___ doing things like Quick Claw + Horn Drill 3 times in a row, this is pretty tame...

I hate WoW missing.
The Nanoha that you've always admired is an invincible Ace who will not lose to anybody.

At least you get 1 BP per victory, instead of having to win multiple times in a row to get any BP...

True.

Finally got it 41 eggs in. There should be only a 3.39% chance of having to get that many, but... oh well, could have been worse.

I am never, ever going to try Masuda Method or anything else for a shiny. I just don't have the patience (or box space).
