    I need advice. I'm trying to get a Pichu with Volt Tackle. I have two good females, but I can't pick which one to use. I'm going to transfer the baby to Diamond when I get it, so attack > special attack.

    Female 1:
    HP IV: 18 ~ 22
    Attack IV: 22 ~ 26
    Defense IV: 24 ~ 28
    Sp.Atk IV: 12 ~ 16
    Sp.Def IV: 8 ~ 12
    Speed IV: 31 *

    Female 2:
    HP IV: 18 ~ 22
    Attack IV: 26 ~ 30
    Defense IV: 28 ~ 30 *
    Sp.Atk IV: 16 ~ 20
    Sp.Def IV: 20 ~ 28
    Speed IV: 16 ~ 20

    The * means it's the best stat. They're both "quite impressive" according to the breeder guy.

    The 10% increase is insignificant, so something like a stat-boosting berry would be more useful in the long run.

    And that's a Megayanma.

    Yes it is save. Rare Candies only have an influence on the level and not on the Ev's.

    Once you finish EV training it is safe to use rare candies.

    I have here 2 different kangaskhans that both know substitute & focus punch from father snorlax and have the IVs as follows:

    HP/attack/defense/sp.atk/sp.def/speed
    1. Jolly: 31/31/24/14/09/31 (impressive)
    2. Adamant: 31/31/31/08/23/27 (wonderfully outstanding)

    My guess is the adamant one should be the sub-puncher to use though am not certain if it being off just a little in speed might be of any concern as its defense is flawless and sp.def is above 20 at least.

    the adamant one is clearly better, and should be used instead of the jolly one in any and all instances that i can think of right now.

    Hmm would a calm mind + Elemental + Explosion sudowoodo work good?

    Sudowoodo

    -Calm mind
    -Ice punch
    -Thunder punch
    -Explosion

    Would that be good to use over wi-fi.

    if that's for DP then no.

    calm mind boosts special attack and special defense, and elemental punches are physical attacks in the 4th generation. sudowoodo wants a STAB rock attack anyway. maybe over calm mind and CB it?

    EDIT: hatched an impish aron earlier this morning too, quite impressive and with Rock Head as a trait so i can abuse double-edge.

    29 / 30 / 31 / 10 / 20-23 / 11

    working on a modest CM blissey right now as well, already have one with flawless HP in there so hopefully can get impressive special scores on a decent one. i'm going back and forth between the ability as 20% freeze seems tempting on CM ice beam, and 20% paralysis is equally fun.

    My EV'd team of Mettagross, Slamance and Starmie have swept the Frontier. All I have left to do is get the Battle Palace Gold Symbol. Which I think I can do. But once I've done that I'll stop the breeding for the frontier and think for the future in DP.

    Aipoms Evo? Gligars Evo? Magneton's Evo? Rhydon's Evo? Kirlia Split Evo? Dusclops Evo?

    Are those Pokemon Evo's any good stat-wise?


    My TC credit to myself. Pretty good aye?

    I think you are reffering to a EverStone.Put an Everstone on your Quilfish. And every time you get an egg there's 50% chance it's an Adamant natures Quilfish.

    And IMO that Quilfish you caught is crappy IV wise. **** Speed and Def and SP Defences always means trouble IMO. Hopefully you can breed one with Flawless ATK HP with reasonable DEF, sp.def and SPD.

    Not all Pokémons must have a STAB attack. Sometimes their stats won't allow it. Metagross is never recommended with Psychic in its moveset, because its SAtt isn't very high, and its not smart to ignore the high Att stat. Salac Berry can only be ontained through special methods. Its can be obtained in Pokémon Colosseum or it can be held by Jirachi when traded over. Salac Berry increases speed when HP below 1/3

    When breeding with Ditto, make the ditto hold the Everstone. That way, there is a high chance that Ditto's nature is passed on to off-spring. Hence, you must capture an Adamant Ditto. If you are breeding it with a female, then make sure the Female is holding the Everstone. This only works in Emerald

    They are all good. Its has pushed some pokémons from the NU/UU to the OU groups. You can easily check thier stats and movepool in the dex.

    For Vaporeon, Modest or Bold Natures are best. Depending on your Vaporeon's full moveset, you can select one of those two natures.

    Wtf, never Modest on Vaporeon. Never. Always Bold please.

    While trying to breed to get Blissey with flawless HP/Def (with Bold Nature and Natural Cure), does the defense stat (of the hatched Chansey) have to be 7 (at level 5) for its defense to be a flawless IV (or close to)?

    yes. 7 for defense, 41 for hit points or your chansey isn't up to par. i am actually breeding for blissey right now as well. im currently trying for a CM blissey, modest, i have a wonderfully oustanding flawless hp/def/sp atk (and maybe attack too) but its special defense is only 3-4. is it that important since im boosting it with CM? granted ill be switching in on a special attack, and at that point, it may be too late once they see how much damage it does to really CM up. i posted this on smogon too, but what IVs are most important when breeding for blissey? defense seems pretty obvious, but does special defense trump HP or vice versa?
