breeding nincada for best ninjask/shedinja build

#1InfiniSephirothPosted 2/12/2014 11:03:44 AM
Hello all,

I recently decided to breed Nincada just for the heck of it. I was wondering what the boards opinion is on getting the most optimal Ninjask and Shedinja with only one Nincada. What nature/IVs/moves would benefit them both the most? I imagine only speed and attack matter for Shedinja. Also to get sword dance on both of them would I need to evolve Nincada at level 25?

You can only get Swords Dance on Shedinja in Generation 4 or before. It was changed in generation 5, and has carried over to 6.

Still a bit new at breeding. So this means even if I find one that can learn it there is no chance it's offspring will ever learn it?

IIRC Nincada evolves at 20.

Ninjask's best set is probably a Baton Pass set. Something like this:

Ninjask @Focus Sash
Adamant/Jolly/something. Probably EV's in HP and a Defense or something I guess
Baton Pass
Swords Dance
Protect
Substitute

Set up Substitute whenever you can. Protect stall for Speed Boost to kick in. Swords Dance, then Pass it out. I've never used it but this is probably what I'd use it for.

As for Sheddy... probably physically offensive with this:

Shedinja@Focus Sash
Adamant 252 Attack 252 Speed
Swords Dance
Shadow Sneak
X-Scissor
Confuse Ray/Shadow Force/Dig/Toxic/Heal Block

Not sure on last move, just whatever you think your team would benefit from. Again, never used Shedinja before, but this is probably what I would run if I did. Just gotta watch out for residual damage from weather/stealth rocks.

Edit: Just read the above posts about Swords Dance. So I dunno. I guess swap out SD for some other move on both of the sets I posted.

Pretty much, unless it's in Nincada's level-up movepool or the line's egg moves list, it won't pass down.

Hmm it's looking like my breeding project may be a bust then without swords dance unless someone has a good suggestion. Thanks everyone so far.

Hone Claws could possibly be a substitute for Swords Dance, looking at the line's TM list again.
