So, lets say I breed a perfect 31/x/31/31/31/31 Jolteon... I only have a 1/18 chance of getting HP Ice?

Why do people come up with the stupidest suggestions for YRs? Is there some sort of secret challenge I don't know about?


This 1/18 chancr isn't bad actualy, such a jolteon would probably get dark or dragon.


If you're breeding for HP, you're probably doing it for 4x SE. Like how Jolteon wants to do as much damage as possible to pokemon like Gliscor and Garchomp, who would otherwise treat Jolteon as a free switch.

252 SpA Choice Specs Jolteon Hidden Power Ice vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Garchomp: 400-472 (111.7 - 131.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO

252 SpA Choice Specs Jolteon Hidden Power Dragon vs. 4 HP / 0 SpD Garchomp: 200-236 (55.8 - 65.9%) -- guaranteed 2HKO

You use Thunder and Garchomp switches in, it's dead if you have HP Ice. You're dead if you have HP Dragon or Dark.


Yes, but if you're breeding for HP ice, it wouldn't have 5 perfect ivs, if you want both the 5 perfect ivs and hp ice, then the randomized HP is a good thing.

My HP Ice Jolteon has 31/x/30/31/31/31. I'd much rather breed for that again than go for a 1/108 chance of getting a perfect 5IV HP Ice Jolteon.

Keep in mind, you had to go through a 1/32 chance to get a parent with an IV of 30 in that stat.

Let Hidden Power be passed down through breeding rather than being completely random.
