    Competitive Breeding/Training Guide

    Part 1: Terms

    IVs:

    Whenever a Pokemon is caught or hatched, it is given an IV in every stat. This IV is a number ranging from 0 to 31. This number effects the Pokemon’s overall efficiency at said stat. If you caught two level 50 Skarmorys, the differences in their stats can be explained by IVs. IVs stand for Individual Values, and are hidden, uncontrollable amount. However, through breeding you can manipulate it to make an ideal number

    Hidden Abilities:

    In game the average game, a trainer will have a starter with the ability Torrent, Overgrow or Blaze, however, each starter has an ability on top of this, called their Hidden Ability. Most Pokemon have one of these hidden abilities, abilities that aren’t available by just playing through the main game. Certain Pokemon, like Slaking, don’t, but in general, most Pokemon do

    Natures:

    In the game, a Pokemon can have one of twenty natures . Each nature raises one stat (attack, defense, special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed) and lowers another one. These are the red one word personality trait said in game (Naughty, Adamant, Docile).

    EVs:

    EVs stand for Effort Values, like IVs they help determine your Pokemon’s growth, however, unlike IVs these are totally controlled by the player. However, unlike IVs, you can’t just max out every stats EVs.

    Egg Moves:

    Pokemon have the ability to learn moves beyond what they learn through leveling up. These, are either move tutored, tmed, or past down through an egg move. If a father has a move it’s child can learn as an egg move (or mother as well) the egg move will be past off to the child. Egg moves are moves that fall in moves you have to get to a Pokemon species through breeding

    Part 2: Items

    To Breed Pokemon, two items are very useful and necessary for breeding your Pokemon. Everstone and the Destiny Knot have additional effects beyond their normal effects that make them useful in the breeding process

    Everstone

    The Everstone is normally an item in game that prevents a Pokemon’s evolution, however when attached to a Pokemon, it both passes down the holder’s nature to it’s child, but also increases the chance of the ability being passed down. The Everstone can be found in three specific locations.

    Geosenge town contains the first everstone, located northwest of the Pokemon center.  Head to the purple house circled below, and talk to the scientist in the building to receive your Everstone.



    The second location is on wild Geodude, Graveller, Roggenrola and Boldor. They have a chance to hold it. To get the item without catching endless of those species, have a team member use the move thief on these Pokemon to take their item.

    The third location is for defeating Inver in an Inverse Battle. By using a few not very effective moves (1-3) you will be rewarded with an evolutionary stone, one of the possible 10 is an Everstone. Inver can be found on Route 18.

    Destiny Knot

    The Destiny Knot normally deals with infatuating Pokemon that Infatuate your Pokemon, but in the breeding process it passes off a random 5 IVs from the parents to the child.

    The first one can be found at Hotel Cyllage. Head inside the hotel and talk to the maid, and she will give you a destiny knot.

    In the back Allies of Lumiose is the location of the next Destiny Knot. Trainers will randomly spawn, and upon being defeated, will reward you with an item. Beauty Aimee will reward you with a Destiny Knot.

    IV Breeding: 

    We will be going through the steps to help breed your first perfect IV Pokemon here. In order to do this you will need access to the Destiny Knot Mentioned above, a person who can identify IVs (the cooltrainer in Kiloude City Pokemon Center) and a place to easily get Perfect IV Pokemon (The friend safari) 

    any Pokemon caught in the friend safari is guaranteed to have 2 perfect IVs. pick a species and catch a male and female variation of it, and have their IV's examined. (pretend we caught a 2 Phantumps here, one with perfect HP and Defense, and another with perfect Defense and Speed). He will tell you the stats and then say it cannot be beat. For breeding through this purposes, using the destiny knot attaching to one of them will pass off a total of 5 random stats between the two parents. In our example, we would attach it to one of the kids, and keep having eggs until 1 has all three stats. 

    Now, we have a Phantump with 3 perfect IVs, and we'd find another with one of the missing stats (ideally both) and breed it with out 3 perfect IV Phantump until we got one with 4, or even 5. As long as all five stats are within the pair (ie. one has HP, Attack, Defense and Special Defense max, and one has Defense, Special Defense and Speed) you can replace one parent with it's kid provided it fills the same role, and adds another stat to their side. This increases the chance of a perfect IV child to be made.

    A pair with the stats (HP, Attack, Defense and Speed) and (HP, Attack, Special Defense and Speed) are more likely to have a 5 IV perfect child than a pair of (HP, Attack Defense) and (Special Defense and Speed). So, within your breeding process, consistently cipher through your Pokemon. After breeding and replacing Pokemon consistently, you will eventually get one with Perfect IV in 5 stats. To make future breeding easier though, I suggest you aim to make your first Pokemon bred, male
