Hm I've read the bulbapedia article before, but I can't find where it says that it's 20%...
Quote:In Generation VI, any Pokémon, including male and genderless Pokémon, can pass down their Hidden Ability when bred with Ditto. Ditto's Ability is irrelevant to inheritance. If the male is bred with another Pokémon from the same egg group, Hidden Abilities will not be passed down.Quote:This section is incomplete.
Reason: Chance of Hidden Ability being passed down from a male or genderless Pokémon in Generation VI, and confirmation whether the female hidden ability transfer chance remains the same..

Oh did they ever find out the odds of passing down the hidden ability from a male paired with a Ditto? I know females had a 60% chance to pass down the HA in gen 5, and I assume it's the same in XY, but I don't know about a male + Ditto pairing, so I've been avoiding it.
Actually, I can't even remember the last time I used Ditto to breed, I only have 2 or 3 IVs ones from the Friend Safari, so I'd much rather use compatible males with much better IVs. I've bred Buizel before too, for a doubles team. I started with a female from the FS paired with a perfect Lotad I happened to breed. It's fun battling with them evolved as partners now actually hehe.

I've sent some Dream Radar Pokémon. It's easy to spend the 100 Orbs to double your chances of catching Pokémon, and there are three codes you can enter to guarantee yourself a catch every time you enter it (though up to 29 other clouds contain just Orbs, so it's best used after another round). The downside is they don't always have good IVs (rarely), but who cares; use a Destiny Knot on a perfect Ditto and you can breed the ability anyway now, male or female, with some of Ditto's IVs. While it's not a Dream Radar example, I just bred a batch of Buizel; one has 1IV, another 2IV, one 3IV, and the last 4IVs. I am going to do a second batch because I want to keep the 4IV or try to get a 5IV as I bred them for trade in the first place. I also want to avoid them all going into Dusk Balls. LOL

Oh I see, that's great. I've never even tried completing the 'dex in previous generations, but with the awesome connectivity X and Y have, it's a lot easier, so I thought, hey why not try it now, you know?
WT is pretty amazing, I actually got most of the starters from there, and the rest off GTS. I remember that right after Bank was released in Japan, there were so many Transporter-only Pokemon on WT, it was so lovely.

I actually have a completed Dex in Black already, so I can bring in anything and breed anything, thus giving me the hexagom icon and everything breedable technically being from Kalos (with that symbol). I actually decided to start by completing the entire Kanto Dex, though I will wait to do the three legendary birds until I catch my own. I just won a Power Saves, so I can clone soon. I probably won't use it for much of anything else, but I might have a little fun with NSMB2.
After Kanto is done, I'll take a look at the Central Kalos, which is close. Then Johto, and over to coastal Kalos. I've already imported Johto and Hoenn babies, sans Johto starters, but I got a Cyndaquil and a Todotile in WT; just missing Chikorita thus.

Hey, saw your post in the Shiny Hunters thread, and just wanted to wish you luck in your Shiny Charm quest, aka completing the 'dex! I'm trying for the same, and well, it's fun, though also a bit tedious. It's good that you're going for the Kalos 'dex first, is what I did as well, that way you'll at least have the Oval Charm to help during any breeding project you might want to do before getting the Shiny Charm.
Anyway, if you need any Pokemon, for the 'dex or IVed, I'd love to help, so just VM me whenever

Hey. Definitely after. I did trade with someone else after we traded, and I can't remember if I changed the router before or after that trade. I was actually going to look for the old router in the storage room and check if I can trade with it.

Found ya on another profile. When did you get the new router? Before or after we traded?

I do know that, but you still have to wait for the seasons to pass, so I just like catching a new one and name it after her season and keep her in the PC. I just like them a lot, they're cute :D

...you do know the same Deerling works for all four scientist visits, yes? After you show them yours, and leave, you return to find a new addition to the room in the form of a Deerling they just caught (in 2 seconds apparently) in one of four spots in the room. Yours changes with the game as long as it's out of the PC and in your party at midnite. I have an evolved one (Sawsbuck) as well, and it changes in the same fashion.

I don't get what you're saying, but it's basically like this: Illumise breed with any compatible Pokemon (i.e. males from the same egg group) and the baby is either Illumise or Volbeat. Volbeat breed with Ditto and the baby is either Illumise or Volbeat. This works only in Gen V apparently. So as long as you have one of them, you can breed it until you get the other.

The hell? I never knew that...you learn something funny every day.
So I have to catch Volbeats, I can't breed any...while White players have to catch their own Illumise...and if the baby breeds, it's exactly the same as what it is...that's just too strange. I suppose I'll have to wait for a Route 3 swarm to trigger (saw one the other day in fact, it seems to be common unlike some *coughRoute18cough*). Can't do it today - I went Landorus hunting - but could technically soft-reset to trigger it tomorrow and we can have a trade set up as soon as the weekend.

I think I got Minun the other day :D I already got Plusle through GTS, but I'd be interested in Volbeat, if I can't find Illumise in my game. You can get Illumise by breeding your Volbeat BTW.
August 28th, 2012 6:28 AMCyclone
You never told me you had a Minun! I'm looking for that and an Illumise!
I do have Plusle and Volbeat and can breed them.
