    Default Maggyo's Breeding Challenge II

    PLEASE NOTE: Given the minor snafu in the previous thread due to people being unable to access certain IV calculators, I am going to endeavor to find breeding strategies that don't require the use of an IV calculator at all. Thankfully in B/W we have the wonderful Subway Guy. Love that guy.

    ALSO NOTE: I am only using pokemon that are native to B/W and available on either game, so that anyone with a copy of B/W can participate even if they don't have wifi. If you have access to another pokemon in the same breeding group and want to breed that instead, feel free. Advanced breeders are also welcome to show off and go beyond the mission requirements.


    This is a Black/White Challenge for beginning breeders. It will be using a common pokemon in B/W: Lillipup.

    LILLIPUP: Puppy Pokémon
    Type: Normal
    Gender: 50/50
    Ability: Pickup/Vital Spirit

    Evolves to:
    STOUTLAND: Big-Hearted Pokémon (final form)
    Type: Normal
    Gender: 50/50
    Ability: Intimidate/Sand Rush

    GOAL: Adamant natured Lillipup with a 31 IV in attack

    Catch yourself a FEMALE LILLIPUP if you don't already have one, then look through the pokemon in your boxes to find an ADAMANT NATURED MALE (+atk, -spatk) of any species that is in the FIELD egg group. There is a list here: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wi...28egg_group%29 Since the Field group is the biggest breeding group, you are likely to already have an adamant male that's compatible, as long as you've been catching a decent number of pokemon on your game.

    Give the adamant male an EVERSTONE. If you somehow missed getting one of these you can steal them from wild Roggenrola and its evolutions. Everstone gives a 50% chance of passing down the nature and can be held by either parent in Black/White.

    Put your lillipup and your adamant male Field Group parent in the daycare in Route 3, then get on your bike and ride up and down until the guy calls you. Talk to him and he'll give you an egg. Get three eggs, retrieve your parents (to save them leveling up too much and costing you huge amounts of money) and then ride around until the eggs hatch. Having a Flame Body or Magma Armor pokemon (hint: Volcarona) in your party will make the eggs hatch faster.

    You have a 50% chance of getting the Adamant nature. With any luck, at least one of your three eggs will contain an adamant female. If you didn't get one, get more eggs and try again until you do.

    Check your boxes again to find a male Field group pokemon with a 31 IV in Attack or Speed (or both, if you're lucky). You can locate one easily by just taking groups of pokemon to the guy in the Subway and showing them to him one by one. If he says a stat "can't be better", it's 31. Hopefully you'll have at least one somewhere. If all your Field Group pokemon are somehow complete trash, I can probably trade you something with a 31 ATK to use.

    Now, give your female adamant Lillipup the Everstone, and put her in the daycare with your Field group parent that has the 31 ATK.

    MISSION: Breed a Lillipup with Adamant Nature and a 31 ATK IV!

    If you've done everything above, you have everything you need. Collect a bunch of eggs, five is a sensible number, then hatch them and take the Adamant babies to the Subway guy to see if any of them inherited that 31. Repeat until you have an adamant Lillipup with 31 ATK. Then, use Metalkid or another IV calculator of your choice to get the rest of its IVs and copy-paste them in this thread. The best Lillipup posted gets an adamant male Smeargle with 31 ATK and SPEED IVs. Everyone else gets an adamant male Smeargle. The worst Lillipup (you still need that 31 ATK or it doesn't count!) gets an adamant male Patrat with 31 SPEED. Deadline for this challenge is 12:00pm 30th November 2011.

    Not to try and run your project, but I have a suggestion.

    I would first start out with a Ditto collecting project. Have people catch a certain nature Ditto or maybe looking for a Ditto with a 31 IV. Collecting Ditto can be done in the Giant Chasm. You can use a Synchronize ability Pokémon to speed up your process. I usually make a collection of Synchronize Pokémon as well.

    Having a DItto collection takes some time, but it is a great way to jump start your breeding projects.

    Please can you hold onto this challenge for a bit? I'm having trouble finding an Adamant mum.
