    Alright, so this is my first post. I'm currently playing htrough pokémon Black, and I need HM slaves. Since I can't access a rufflet, or at least I think I can't, I decided to go with Ducklett and Oshawott. Conveniently, Oshawott was my starter I stuck my male Samurott with a female Patrat in the daycare and biked around for an hour. After at least two dozen eggs, I still didn't get a single Oshawott. Is there a reason for that or am I just plain unlucky? And if so, what slaves should I use?

    When breeding with two Pokémon of different species, the female determines what the babies will be. Breeding with a female Patrat will mean the babies will always be Patrats

      Couple of other things to note now that I have some time:

      If you're in the postgame, you can catch a Ditto (in the Giant Chasm forested area) and use that to breed with your Samurott to get Oshawotts. When you breed with Ditto the offspring are always of the species of the non-Ditto parent.

      Samurott and Swanna together pretty much cover your HM needs, as Swanna can learn Fly, Surf, and Dive, while Samurott can learn Waterfall, Strength, and Cut (and Surf). Carracosta and Simipour also make for a good HM slave, as the former gets Surf, Waterfall, Dive, and Strength, while the latter gets Cut, Surf, Waterfall, and Dive meaning you only need Cut/Strength and Fly.

        Yeah... Unfortunately, I can't obtain Rufflet who knows Strength, Cut and Fly and I chose Archen... I fell like I made all the wrong decisions...
