                          1.  What Egg Groups Are                        [WHAT]

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 To breed your Pokemon, just drop them off at the Daycare Center in Solaceon
(shown above), then bike around until the man is facing east (this indicates
that an egg was created). Talk to him with an empty party slot to get the egg.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

An egg group is what determines whether two Pokemon are compatible or not, when
breeding. Every Pokemon belongs to either one or two egg groups, no more. For
example, Pikachu and Clefairy are both in the "Fairy" egg group, so they can
successfully breed. Pikachu also belongs to the "Ground" egg group, so it could
breed with a Vulpix or an Eevee (both in the Ground group). A Pikachu could
never breed with an Oddish, since Oddish does not belong to the "Fairy" group
OR the "Ground" group. You can often tell whether two Pokemon are compatible or
not just by looking (birds can generally breed with birds, plants with plants,
etc).

Because of overlapping and/or broad egg groups, there are some decidedly odd
combinations, such as Skitty and Wailord (both in the Ground group). This
particular pair has spawned a meme known as "Hot Skitty on Wailord Action"
(HSOWA).

Also, one quick tip when breeding Pokemon--bring along a 'mon with either Flame
Body or Magma Armor as its ability, and the number of steps that any egg would
normally take to be hatched will be halved. So any Pokemon with roughly 10k
hatch steps would then have just 5k, for example.

                3. Passing Down Moves Through Chain Breeding             [PASS]
===============================================================================

Chain breeding is the act of breeding different species of Pokemon across
several generations to produce one final Pokemon with the desired species and
move. It's important to know about egg groups, so you can design a successful
chain. Here's an example: 

You have a Golduck (M) who has learned Amnesia through leveling up. You have an
Azumarill (F) who is compatible with the Golduck. You also have a Clefable (F).
You breed the Golduck and Azumarill, and Amnesia gets passed on to the
offspring, a Marill (M). You breed the Marill (M) with the Clefable (F) to get
a Cleffa that knows Amnesia. 

Neither Azumarill nor Clefable could normally learn Amnesia unless it was
inherited from a parent. Clefable can't breed with Golduck, which is why you'd
need to first get an Amnesia-knowing Marill. 

Veekun has created a chain breeding calculator of sorts that'll show you the
quickest way to pass down any given move:

NOTE: Moves are only passed down if a) the offspring can learn that move and b)
the move-carrying parent is male!
