Breeding shinies together for higher IVs

Recommended Posts

I have always thought when breeding 2 shinies together 2 highest IVs will auto transfer, then u can use items for other 2. But now I know that the 2 random stats will be picked to transfer, making it possible for the RNG to miss the 31 ivs that aren't held with items. Can anyone explain in detail how to make 5x31 shiny plx?

the average of 31 and 31 is 31. So the parents need to have overlapping 31s to achieve a 5x31.


It’s possible with 2 3x31 parents with 1 overlapping stat (x represents non-31 IV and stats are HP/Atk/Def/SpAtk/SpDef/Spe)



so Def overlaps in this case.


brace HP and SpDef. And the possible outcomes are:

31/31/31/31/31/x (best luck, ie atk and spatk get chosen for highest IV to pass)

31/x/31/31/31/x (medium luck, spatk and spe get chosen for highest IV to pass)

31/31/31/x/31/x (medium luck, atk and spe get chosen for highest IV to pass)

31/x/31/x/31/x (worst luck, def and spe get chosen for highest IV to pass)
