IV Breeding - Getting Max 6IV Question

#1EterniiiPosted 8/19/2014 10:06:50 PM
Hello, I'm trying to figure out how to IV breed to get pokemon with all IV status maxed, so all 6 IVs at 31. I'm using a Ditto that has Max 6IVs, and breeding it with pokemon that have 5 max IVs does that work? What are the chances I'll get an offspring with all 6 maxed? Is there a better way to do it?

More Detail:
Ditto [Shiny] (Japanese)
SPE - 31
ATK - 31
DEF - 31
HP - 31
Sp.DEF - 31
Sp.ATK - 31
^ Holding Destiny Knot


Breeding with...

Eevee (english)
SPE - 31
ATK - 31
DEF - 31
HP - Not Maxed, guessing somewhere in the teens or low twenty's
Sp.DEF 31 31
Sp. ATK - 31

I've just been getting eggs and hatching them and then checking over and over again, so far I usually get 3 Max IVs the most I've gotten being 5. Does it work like this or have I been wasting my time, or is there a better way? What should I do to get 6 Max IVs?

Your least should be 4ivs

Well I might have been mistaken, I thought the lowest I saw was 3 but I've been doing it for hours and hours so I could be wrong haha but 5 is the max I've gotten for sure.

One of the IV's will be completely randomly generated.

Chances of a 6 IV if you put a power weight on the ditto and Destiny Knot on the Eevee = 1/32

So what I'm doing will work, but its all random. So I just have to keep doing it into I get lucky is what your saying? There's no way to increase the chance of it? So people with 6 IV pokemon did the same thing and just got lucky?

Its better to have the Destiny Knot on Eevee than Ditto? Why is that?

Honestly read the sticky. Granted who you have the DK on doesn't matter, however you usually want to have an everstone to control for nature as opposed for IVs using power items.

If you put the DK on the Eevee and put the power weight on the Ditto, you'll make it so that no matter what iv is randomly generated, the other five will certainly be perfect. Thus, you're only hoping the randomly generated IV is perfect, which is a 1/32 chance.

Now if you wanted a good nature or something that'd be different lol.

Edit: The above poster is right, it doesn't typically matter who you put the DK on, but if you want 6 IVS, that's the best way.

If you want 6 IV's and the Eevee's nature, put Everstone on the Eevee and put DK on the Ditto. The chances of a perfect one is decreased slightly, but still are decent. You didn't mention natures so I'm not sure if you care about those.

Alright alright so if I put the DK on the Eevee and gave the everstone to the ditto (who has Nature Adamant which is what I want) Then I'll get the Nature right and by putting it on the 5IV Eevee also increase my chance of getting a 6IV Eevee with Adamant offspring?
