    That's such a horrible nature to have on a Geomancy set, no offense. I'd definitely go with Special Attack over Special Defense, it'd be more useful especially if Xerneas doesn't manage to pull off a Geomancy boost. I'd run the standard 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe but with that Speed-reducing nature I'm not sure whether it's really worth the investment.

    lol I know that the nature is horrible. I figured investing in Speed would be a waste considering that it has a nature that reduces speed, so I went with HP instead. (mainly for extra bulk/not knowing where else to put the EVs) If not a Geomancy set, maybe a Calm Mind set instead?

    Use a Destiny Knot, and make sure the other parent has good IVs as well.

    Don't be afraid of incest, if you have to.

    Ugh so I spent hours breeding Dratini with E-Speed and finally got an Adamant Marvel Scale Dratini with 6iv's...and no E-Speed! I've apparently taken out my two Day Care mons at some point to check their own ivs and didn't re-teach one of them the move before I put them back in. So frustrated!

    I have some Dratini that are Adamant with Extreme Speed. They aren't flawless though. I think most of mine are 3 IV, not guaranteeing which IVs. If you are interested, send me a VM.

    Thanks for the offer, but I like to breed for IV's on my own I'm churning out plenty of 4IV Dratinis, but no more than that until that 6IV let down! I haven't tried since, but when I do I'm sure I'll get it right!!

    Sorry if this has been answered before (my browser won't let me use the search function for some reason), but I heard that evs are capped at 252 this gen instead of 255 (which would make sense). Is there any truth to that?

    Hi... Hope I'm posting in the right place here. ^_^ I wanted to ask - exactly how much of a difference does iv breeding actually make?
    The team I've been training is already too far along to trash so I can breed a new one- but I'm curious, would there really be that much of a difference between them and 31/31/31/31/31 versions of them? .-.

    IVs of 31 add 31 points per stat at level 100. IVs don't do as much as Natures/EV training, but in super competitive battling 1 point can make a difference. If you are just playing in-game or in random match ups, then you are probably fine.

    You're not using the Destiny Know, are you? Normally, the egg inherits a combined total of three IVs from the parents making the other random, but if one of the parents is holding the Destiny Knot that total gets set to five combined IVs from the parents. Using this method, you will get 4-6 IVs (most of them will likely have 5), though getting the sixth requires luck unfortunately.

    Most of the time, unless you're breeding a mixed Attacker, 6ivs are usually unnecessary.
    With the right + nature and fully invested EV training you're able to max out a particular stat as far as it can go.

    Are you using the Destiny Knot? It guarantees 5 IVs will be passed down from the parents. If not, then 3 IVs are passes down from the parents and the rest are randomly generated.

    What are IVs? Can you train for them or do you breed?
    And why is 5-6 IV ditto so valuable? And what does 5-6 IVs mean at all?
    Do these IVs help in battle?

    Serebii's page on IVs
    Another page to look at.

    1. IVs are kind of like a pokemon's DNA: They are born with those values and they cannot be changed
    2. 6IV Dittos allow you to get 5IVs on a pokemon really easily, especially with the new Destiny Knot
    3. Yes
