IV breeding is making me really appreciate how easy RNG is in comparison. >.< Still working on getting a 31/x/31/31/31/31 Bold Eevee with Wish in a Premier Ball. Had to start completely from scratch and it sucks. D: But by horrible I mean the IV checker says they have terrible IVs or no 31's. All I care about is perfect IVs so I don't know exact IVs.

Do you have a friend with a Ditto safari? If not I wouldn't mind sending you a couple good ones to help.

They really make IV breeding a ton easier because you can alternate between dittos with 31 in different stuff until you get good parents. Destiny Knot makes this gen super easy to IV breed imo.

    I think being able to RNG spoiled us all. But I used to IV breed in Gen III. I have not yet finished the game, but I am looking forward to getting there. Trust me, from what I've been reading this gen gave us practically stupid easy breeding. True, it's not RNG easy, but it's much easier than hours(or days) of chain breeding IV's like I used to (and oh, the fun of finally getting the Pokemon you wanted only to realize an egg move got bumped off by a father somewhere in the chain leveling up and deleting your egg moves and needing to start over... )

    By the way...
    How long should my 3DS battery last? I am getting very annoyed that I can only play for about an hour between charging. My 3DS was new in June, and Pokemon X/Y was my first actuall 3DS purchase (up till now been playing my DS games on it, and that is it, but was not using it often as most of the summer was not playing at all, or was using my Lite to RNG on). I have the brightness set to 1, and power save set to "on". and I keep the 3D set to off(gives me a headache), and the wireless set to off as well(until I decide to wonder trade, which so far is my favorite new feature). I get about an hour to hour and a half and then warnings pop up that the battery is about to die. I have nowhere I can sit and play next to an outlet so it can be plugged in while I play. Do I have a deffective 3DS? Or is this what the new generation of games really does?

    It's not the IVs that are giving me trouble. It's the gender ratios and egg hatching times hnnnnnng. I got super lucky though and got a Bold natured female to breed with my quad flawless male Eevee so now it's just a matter of time until the game decides to give me a quint flawless Eevee that I want...

    Yay go Mia :D That Gyarados is going to be scary D:

    My 3DS battery lasts a good while but I don't know times. I know it's longer than an hour though even with wireless and 3D on and mine is not that new either.

    I got a second one, but I gave her to Mac. XD
    I'm training her while trying to get a DW one.
    I think I'm going to breed Espurr next or Litleo.

      Yep. Gender ratio's on any of the mostly Males can be a pain. And egg hatching times on certain ones used to drive me bonkers... FYI: I never got into AR codes for fast egg hatches, so even when RNGing I deal with the long hatch times... Of course the big difference is that when you know you did your RNG correct you're only waiting on one egg to hatch.

      I think the thing to learn is how PID/Gender/IV's are handled now. If I recall at one point Gender/Nature/Ability/Shiny were determined the moment the egg was ready, and IV's were generated the moment you accepted the egg. I do not recall how this was handled in Gen V as I never hatched eggs in Gen V. But if it works similar still, you can save in front of the day care man, take an egg. Do your long bike ride, and if you like the gender/nature/ability but not your IV's you reset and try again. Does anyone know if any kind of variation on this can work this generation???

      Lastly:
      Hidden Power breeding will certainly be effected by this all. I typically breed for a Hidden Power rather than all perfect IV's. That's going to be a little more guess work and trial and error now.

      So I got a question, they have people that trade Pokemon on the GTS in which you can receive over and over again as many times as you want, are those Pokemon legit or are they hacked?

      My 3DS typically lasts about 3 hours so I'm not sure what's wrong with yours.

      I finally have a Ditto Safari (didn't get it on this site, so don't bother asking). Wasting lots and lots of pokeballs and money to catch a triple flawless Ditto. Yay! Also, I have two male quad flawless Goomy now. Except that one's got a terrible nature and neither have the 31 in Special Attack. Yep, more breeding.

      YAY! Finally got a quint flawless Eevee :D It's female with Wish in a Premier Ball and IVs are 31/31/x/31/31/31. \o/ Now to breed it for more and then I can start adding some stock to my Gen VI section of my shop for all you guys who want them. :P

      As far as I know there are no hacks since the coding hasn't been broken yet so those should be legal.

      So many quint karps, but all lacking HP or DEF or SPDEF or SPEED.
      ;-; I'm getting closer and then on to Goomy!

        I'm not sure what's the most sought after but I do know that useful Hidden Abilities are being wanted a lot.

        So I managed to breed the exact Eevee I wanted. 31/x/31/31/31/31 Female Bold with Wish in a Premier Ball :D Also got a 31/31/31/31/31/31 Male which I still can't believe I got. Keeping these to use as parents now for my massive Eevee army lol

          So I haven't gotten to the Safari thing yet in X, but I was curious if they'd set up a special "trade thread" or anything just to trade FCs for it.

          imreedeer - EV isn't offering it, she's just showing people what she's gotten. You need the Quick Trade thread. Trading isn't allowed in this thread.

            Congrats Mia!

            I am a tiny bit jealous of all the people who have finished the main story and are working on such cool breeding projects. Tonight I am buying my son a 2DS which will stop a little of his jealousy over the 3DS.... and means I can trade between my X and Y, which means after my son goes to bed I plan to trade over a few of my German poke's and reset for starters (hahaha... shooting myself in the foot on getting through the game I know). So I have fun plans with my weekend... and if I comment again on not being far in the game I will have to admit there is a reason why...

              For my breeding update. I have 5 male Goomy now all with 31/x/31/31/31/31 and finally just got a female with 31/x/31/31/31/31. Gotta use it to get one for Wiilio. :3

              Surprisingly realized one of my Imposter Dittos have 31/31/x/31/31/x (It's Korean, by the way). I also have an English Honedge I got from wonder trade that has 31 Def IV. Perfect matchup? (Natures suck, though)

              That sucks a lot :( Although there is Luck Incense which can be bought in Courmarine City that also doubles the amount of money earned when held by a Pokemon.

              You're very lucky lol You can always breed until you get the nature you want and then stick an everstone on that one and breed with it. I did that for my Eevees. Took awhile but better than having a bad nature with flawless or something lol

              Bred a couple new things since Shroomish. :D

              Protean Froakie w/ 31/31/31/31/31/31 Timid

              Ferroseed w/ 31/31/31/x/31/0 Relaxed and Stealth Rock/Leech Seed/Spikes Egg Moves

              Really liking breeding now because it's like a Pokemon a day rather than a week or more.

              Icy Snow and Sandstorm Vivillons... They're impossible to get, I'm telling you.
