Breeding for HP[Ice]

#1JoJoX200Posted 6/10/2014 3:19:42 AM
I never really used Electric types, mostly because most of the good ones need an unjustifiedly high effort to breed thx to bad movepools and the need of Hidden Power because of it. I only have 2 Hidden Power users, and both took terrifyingly long to breed and I only got them through insane luck.

Now, with Gen6 improving IV control by a lot, I wanna try again, because Mega Manectric looks awesome. I have lots of breeding resources including a flawless Smeargle and Ditto, so my only problem are the 30IV stats.

Any idea, how to get them the fastest? Them not being identifyable by an NPC ingame is a pain, since I like to use my lengthy train rides for breeding and don't have a connection on there.

Match HP with any non-31 IV's by taking them to the HP checker and then take any you suspect of having correct 30's to Battle Institute to show their Lv50 UT'd stats and match them with an IV calculator. If their stats match up, then you have a winner.

Fastest (legitimate) way is to get an N's pokemon of that egg group. For example, if you want to breed HP Ice Jolteon, get N's Zorua (which will be male).

Optimal IV spread for HP Ice is 31/x/30/31/31/31.

To continue the above example, breed a good female eevee with N's Zorua until you get one that has 30 defensive IVs and is male. (you can check with an IV checker) Give the Eevee a name that denotes what IVs are at 30, and then breed that Eevee with your good female until you get an eevee with the required IV spread.

@Chaosmaster00 Thank you very much. I forgot the HP checker even existed since I never ever used Hidden Power since Gen5.

@Rojse I'm looking to breed Manectric, but since Zorua is in the same egg group, this will be good to fall back on. Thanks.

@bwebber17 You didn't even read the opening post, right?

Pretty sure N has a pokemon suitable for each egg group. I'm breeding HP Vivillon and I've got N's Joltik (30/30/30/30/30/30) to breed with it to get HP Fire and HP Rock.

That's even better! I just hope I did find all of them back then(and kept them). Otherwise I might have to play through White 2 again. The N pokemon only appear when synced with a BW1 version with a Hall of Fame entry, right?
