Playing Soul Silver & Playing White
Perhaps I should've worded it differently.
Before, when an egg was created, the nature, gender, and ability were fixed, but not the IVs, so you could save before taking the egg, check if it had the right traits other then IVs after it hatched, and if it did, then just keep soft resetting so the only random factor you had to deal with was the IVs.
Now, if that indeed isn't possible, it means you have to hope that all of those things end up the right way each time you take the egg, and with the addition of passing down Dream World abilities getting added into the mix, getting that perfect Pokemon is going to be more time consuming then ever.

On the bright side, when doing the "pacing path" the old man will yell at you when an egg is produced and you run by him (making your character face him). Very nice! It was always a pain looking for what direction the old man was facing in D/P/Pt or getting spammed with phone calls in HG/SS.
i have 2 different language pokemon in the daycare currently. i'm going to find some Everstones next and see if Everstone natures works with different language pokemon now.
Does anyone know of a good method for checking IVs? There doesn't seem to be a way to set your Pokemon to Lv100 anymore.
The best thing you can do is check your Pokemons, nature, characteristic and hidden power. Check with the IV dude for a good measure of your pokemons potential and any perfect stats. Save, then write down your pokemons stats from lv. 1 to lv. 10 and use Metal Kids calculator.
It's evil and fairly inaccurate, but it's your best alternative.
Make a wish Eevee!
Oh, how I dread breeding for good Pokemon, now that I've personally tested it, and determined that everything I mentioned before is true.
Though on the bright side, it only takes about 30 seconds of running for me to hatch a starter with a combination of Flame Body and the High Link power-up.

question, if I do mass breeding between certain pokes taking move tutors and egg moves that are only obtionable on certain pokemon cross gen (third and fourth) could those moves be passed on to a dream world baby in the 5th gen? I also want to know if this works with 4th gen tms.
(damn, seems like there is gonna be alot of trading and mechanics being used throught all 3rd 4th and 5th gen games plus the orre games)
wat happened to the competitve section? why is the 5rmt just there?

So, for example, Torterra learns Stealth Rock in Gen IV via TM, but is not possible for it to learn it via TM or breeding or level up in Gen V. So, it is not possible to have a Shell Armor Torterra with Stealth Rock.
So...question for the room.
I love and want Tsutarja like crazy. No other way to word it. It's my favorite starter. The only problem...the attacks that it has available to learn. Is there anyone in here that thinks it would be wise to SR for a female and bread it with something that has a useful egg move it could pass on?
It's a lot of time and effort...I just don't know if it would lead to an effort payoff or a time bankruptcy.

Well, you could breed for your Tsutarja, but I have to wonder what the point is. The only egg move which is really viable on it would be Glare, but of course, it depends exactly what you plan to do. Personally, I performed soft resets until I obtained a female Tsutarja and have put it aside for breeding.
Is there any possible way to get both Dark Pulse and Earth Power on a baby Monozu? I think I have exhausted all possible breeding partners and it doesn't look like it, but I'll ask anyway in case there is something I have missed.
Is there any way to breed Dark Pulse and Extrasensory onto a Zorua? I've been trying to think of a way but it's been driving me crazy. If there isn't a way then it's completely fine.
All the credit to this awesome sig goes to Skiyomi.
Pm me if you wanna chat.
Also, both Nuzleaf and Vulpix learn Extrasensory by level-up and can be taught the Dark Pulse TM in Gen IV.
lol I find it funny how some Pokes gained Cut as an egg move.
How does a Shellos cut??...=\

Does IV passed down lock by this method?Before, when an egg was created, the nature, gender, and ability were fixed, but not the IVs, so you could save before taking the egg, check if it had the right traits other then IVs after it hatched, and if it did, then just keep soft resetting so the only random factor you had to deal with was the IVs.

if I breeded a female dampert with a male 4thgen stealthrock swampert does the baby have dampert+stealthrock?
Nope as Stealth Rock isn't an egg move.
