Natures can make or break your pokémon.
For example, an adamant alakazam could be the worst thing you would want, reducing its all important special attack and increasing its useless attacks tat.
If it were docile, it would be an average alakazam because it is neither strengthened or weakened.
Then a modest alakazam, with boosted special attack and reduced attack, would be very powerful, without affects its speed or defenses.

If you want an Adamant Aerodactyl, then the key is to have one of the parents to be adamant, and make it hold an everstone. 50% of the eggs will be adamant.
So, if you have an adamant ditto, go nuts!

How long it takes for a pokémon to breed, depends on how much they like each other.
But all you need to do is repeatedly cross from one map to another, like repeatedly entering/leaving Goldenrod. You should get an egg very quickly.

Oh, and one last tip.
If you want to get an easy adamant (or whatever) ditto, or other breeding pokémon, do the synchronizer trick.
Put a pokémon with the synchronizer ability, and your desired nature, at the lead of your party. (It can be fainted.) 50% of wild encounters will have the same nature, including legendaries.

If you need a synchronizer, spend 200 coins at the Goldenrod Game corner on an Abra, reset as many times as you need.

...Phew, I hope that answers your questions? This is pretty much how to do breeding.

alternatively on the part where mtp mentioned to go buy an abra at the game corner you can just catch one ( its not so hard).

Then you breed the abra to get different natured synchronizers eventually getting an adamant one and then you can go synch a ditto.

i think if you dont already have different natured dittos you shoudl breed abras to get different natured synchronizers.

brilliant thanks fellas. must be a bit of a bugger though to keep getting abras with the natures AND ability you want?

It's much, much faster to get a few hundred coins from Voltorb flip, then keep on resetting at the shop.

Alright so I've got an adamant abra (at last) but it doesn't have synchronize. can you breed with a ditto at all to get an adamant ditto egg or do I have to breed my abra with another to get an adamant abra with synchronize? And how long do I have to wait do you reckon until the abras give me an egg?
