Simple Breeding Guide


Recommended Posts

Hi ! Do you want to get 5x31 pokemon with the correct nature and breed it by yourself?

I'll show you the method simply here. Let's go!

 

Before we start, there is something you need to know about pokemon.

 

1.Egg Groups

Under normal circumstances, two pokemon can be bred as long as they are in the same egg group.

The offspring would be the same as the female one.

Though most pokemon follows the rules above, there still some exceptions.

●Genderless:

Genderless pokemon can only be bred with the same variety or Ditto.

●Ditto:

Ditto can be bred with all pokemon except for itself and the Undiscovered.

●Undiscovered:

Undiscovered pokemon cannot be bred with anyone, but some of them would change their egg group after the evolution.

 

2.Individual values(IVs) & Nature

Nature:The nature generates randomly.

IVs:The value of the IVs of the offspring would between its parents' IVs, just like the picture below.

Though the nature and IVs are generate randomly under normal circumstances, there are some items that can help you to control them.

 

●Power item(Weight, Bracer, Belt, Lens, Band, Anklet):

Each power item can be used to control the specific category of IVs.

●Everstone:

The nature of the offspring will be the same as the parent who brings an everstone.

3.Egg moves

There are some moves that pokemon may learn from breeding.

Example:Xatu can learn Quick Attack from breeding.

By the way, Particle Effect can also be inherited to the offspring from its parents.

4.Breeding

Now, let's start breeding!

Simply speaking...

1x31+1x31->2x31

2x31+2x31->3x31

3x31+3x31->4x31

4x31+4x31->5x31

 

Take the picture below for example, you will get a 2x31 pokemon.

●Gender choosing

Watch out! Remember to choose the gender correctly, or the offspring might have a gender that you don't want!

Since choosing gender only cost a little, don't ignore it ~

price:

Male:Female -> choosing male:choosing female

1:1 -> 5000:5000

1:3 -> 9000:5000

1:7 -> 21000:5000

3:1 -> 21000:9000

7:1 -> 5000:21000

 

What about 3x31 pokemon?

Since we can only control 2 category of IVs, we can control others like this.

9-2.PNG.5b60cbb5a156ed4d86eb15f5d272062a.PNG

※The parents' IVs of sp.atk are 31, so the IV of sp.atk of the offspring will be absolutely 31.

 

With the method above, we can also get 4x31 pokemon, and then a 5x31 pokemon.

But what about the nature?

Sadly, we can't control the nature while breeding for a 5x31 pokemon.

If the 5x31 pokemon's nature is correct, you are so lucky!

But if not, we need to breed for a 4x31 pokemon with correct nature.

Just like this:

892984320_4V.thumb.png.82e69a05405f52545c6419643ec6abb2.png

Let the pokemon with correct nature take an everstone and continue breeding.

 

After you got a 4x31 pokemon with correct nature, let it be bred with the 5x31 pokemon, and you'll got a 5x31 pokemon with correct nature.

The complete mind map is here.

5x31 pokemon + 4x31 pokemon with correct nature -> 5x31 pokemon with correct nature

Here it is now~

Others for breeding:

 

OT&OT*:

The egg is OT only if the parent that's same species as the egg is OT, otherwise egg is OT*.

 

Price:

Price for a 5x31 pokemon with correct nature (suppose gender choosing cost $5000):

Power item x55 + pokeball x30 + gender choosing x19 + the cost for pokemon X

=550000+6000+95000+X

=651000+X

 

This is the end of this guide.

Since English is not my mother tongue, please remind me if there is anything wrong.

Thanks for visiting.

Overall everything seems fine, it's just that this sentence below seems a little off.

Maybe replace "and breeding" with "and continue breeding" or just delete "and breeding" all together.

 

Also, do you want to add a few sentences regarding OT, OT* and Unknown OT? So that those who refer to guide can also learn about them. Just for completeness, remember that

 

Quote

The egg is OT only if the parent that's same species as the egg is OT, otherwise egg is OT* if both parents are non-shiny and it is Unknown OT if both parents are shiny.

 

There are also some special mechanics and notes about breeding for certain cases like breeding male only pokes, breeding some of the babies, passing Volt Tackle to Pikachu etc. You certainly don't have to include every single exception. I'm just reminding them in case you want to mention.

 

A lot of players asking for breeding guides daily in the chat so it'll be nice to refer them here. Thanks again.

Hi. just a quick question.

 

I am confused at this part.

 

image.png.8c0db114a0facf5d8ccece4a6fa1f5c8.png

 

If you let the 1x31 with the desired nature hold an everstone, and the other 1x31 one with a power item, how come the result is a 2x31 offspring?

 

I am really confused.

Hello, may I ask how this works? Because everytime I choose a gender it costs me 21k which kinda makes me at an disadvantage

3:1 -> 21000:9000

7:1 -> 5000:21000

it depends on the female pokemon (ie your breed)

if you choose to breed starters, eg Charmander etc, they are always 21000 for a guaranteed female egg

OMG...Thanks for reminding me for the mistake!  I don't know why I can make such a mistake...

I have replaced the wrong picture with the correct ones.

Thanks again~
