[Guide] How to Breed and Raise Competitive Pokémon

  • 14 posts

No cute title, no charming little inserts, just information. Enjoy.

---------------------------------- Introduction - Definitions ----------------------------------

Visible Stats:

Level: This is a decoration and has nothing to do with your pokemon's potential. It just divides your stats by some formula depending on your current level.

Main Stats: HP, Attack, Defense, Sp.Attack, Sp.Defense, Speed. Self-explanatory.

Gender: Genders are used for breeding and personal preference. They do not affect main stats.

Natures: Each pokemon has a fixed personality when created. Your pokemon's nature contributes to your pokemon's main stat growth. If a main stat is colored on the status screen it means there's a nature modifier dependent on your nature. (Green = x1.1, Red = x0.9, No color = 1.0 )

A list of all natures can be found here: http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Nature

Individual Values (IVs) = Numbers 0~31 assigned to each main stat of a pokemon. They are determined when the pokemon is created and can't be changed, unless edited using pixelmon points, which are explained Here. Each IV point translates to 1 visible stat point at lv100.

Effort Values (EVs) = Numbers you gain when defeating pokemon. They fall into the six visible stats, and have a total limit of 510, with a maximum of 255 in one stat. Every 4 EV points translates to 1 visible stat point at lv100.

Invisible Stats:

Base stats = Static numbers assigned uniquely to each pokemon species. (ex:Jolteon has 130 base speed). They help determine visible stat growth, and can't be changed.

Egg Group: The group of pokemon a pokemon can breed with.

Btw, I thought gender depends? Like female gives 1 extra defense and males 1 extra attack c;

Sorry, I didnt mean evs I meant that I thought that males have 1 more attack stat than females and females have 1 extra defense than males


I just think that my brother told me something like that some years ago

It's just a myth, gender does not affect the stats of a Pokémon.

Every newbie who doesn't know how to breed will know how to breed when they take the time reading this. It explains everything you should know and more.

I know this is a noob question, but what gender decides the pokemon. E.g: Dratini(male) x Charmander(female). Do I get Charmander or Dratini?

Just do /warp mgshop. #teamelitecomingsoontm

The female always decides the specie, the male will just pass the IVs or some egg moves; when referring to mother in the thread I do mean the female one.

Ok. Thanks so much!

Just do /warp mgshop. #teamelitecomingsoontm

what about the environment is that on the hoenn 3.4 server? 


Breeding environment is disabled on all of our servers.

I'll be sure to read through this soon! I am going to try breeding soon. It might not be right for me, as I have to be very patient.
