What I meant was that it was untrained. It just turned out that way because I kept swapping the parents so the moves were actually passed down. Helioptile was one of the first Pokemon I did IV breeding for in Kalos, started with a 3IV Japanese female, and landed a 4IV shiny within my first box. I didn't even know what shiny Helioptile looked like

...in other words, I'm right! LOL
July 12th, 2014 11:41 PMMiau
Haha, mine is level 1.

Oh, and yours doesn't know Parabolic Charge yet. But I'm guessing it's under Lv.25 by the moveset.
I'll keep that in mind if I have trouble.

I think one of my babies (I have about six or seven untouched 5IVs sitting there now) has Attack as the missing stat, but I may be mistaken. One is missing SpA (it's going out LOL) and I think two are missing Defense. The parents that I used to get this 5IV were a 5IV xx/31/31/31/31/31 and a 4IV 31/31/xx/31/xx/31. I can upgrade this by restoring the 31 in Defense with one of the female babies from the last group, giving a better chance right there of five 31s being selected; if the Attack is randomly skipped (and at some point, it will be), then I have the baby to breed for the best results. Though getting a 6IV to breed it with WOULD be ideal. However, the natures would be the same, so I have to sub in an opposite-nature male (I think I have that too).
We'll see how tomorrow goes. I'm still happy with it, but it could be refined slightly to get an almost guaranteed set of 31s. At least I can guarantee either Timid OR Modest from the two parents however I do it, and I intend to have the option always there.

Oh okay, congrats! Though if you want to breed it 5IV (minus Attack, the undesirable stat), the offer still stands

You're just a little late on that one. See this from the last post before the breeding challenge thread got closed.Spoiler:

Man, I was all caught up in the E4 challenge last night, I didn't realize I had a 5IV female Helioptile I could trade you. It's Timid, and it has the ability Dry Skin. Moves: Tail Whip / Mud-Slap / Quick Attack / Razor Wind. Let me know if you want it
[EDIT] Forgot to mention, it's 31/xx/31/31/31/31, so missing out the undesirable stat.

No, it's MY room...oh, fine, you can have it for today.
And...success! But I still have one more phase to complete. I need to get a female from the same breed without a missing 31 in Speed or Speciak Attack (I have males missing either form of Defense specifically, but otherwise 5IV). What I've read is that Timid or Modest are the way to go because those natures boost either of those while only lowering Attack, which keeps their lower Defense stats (compared to some) intact. I've decided I'll give my Modest Ditto a rest and pull it out, and replace it with my Timid one; BTW, I inherited a Ditto factory, I'm only missing Bashful - which doesn't change a thing anyway.
So...once I have a 5IV from the Timid one, I'll train both to learn the same fourth move (undecided, but I'm thinking Parabolic Charge is a nice one), then anyone who later receives the bred babies from these two will have the option of replacing any Egg Moves they don't want. The only thing not there is Camouflage, and I might add it later if there's a request for it, but this one needs an attacking move (Glare paralyzes, Agility improves speed, Electric Terrain changes the field look to an Electric field where nothing can sleep) so I'll pick either Parabolic Charge or something else more powerful, but I like the energy-sucking aspects of that move.

It'll be nice seeing you there. Looks like you're almost there with your project, good job!
I'm just about to finish the post-game challenge, just beat the E4 and on my way to the Champion's room. So basically, my room
July 12th, 2014 3:02 PMCyclone
- 5IV with all but Speed, knows Glare and Agility.
- 3IV knows Electrin Terrain in addition.
Time to breed the 3IV with a Ditto as I noticed the Egg Moves still carry down (at least from a female with a Ditto). I just need a 5IV covering Speed and I have something for the breeding forum. Think it would serve as a good introduction.

I'm working on that 5IV Electric Terrain addition to the contest Helioptile. My goal is to finish it by midnite.
It should be well before. But I'll post a picture. May even have one for trade.
July 12th, 2014 11:45 AMMiau
Oh, I managed to trade-evolve it in the meanwhile, but thanks for the offer!
I don't think we have, hmm.
July 12th, 2014 11:20 AMCyclone
Still need to evolve Gourgeist?
Have we added each other?
July 11th, 2014 4:45 PMCyclone
Yay, I got one. LOL
