IV Breed: Deino
by, 4th November 2012 at 06:59 PM (373 Views)
Those of you who know me know that I don't use things like Action Replay or Pokegen, and I don't even go so far as to abuse the RNG. What I do for breeding is look for parents with favorable IVs in what I'm looking for (and the Nature, of course) and use them to breed.
In that sense, I got exceedingly lucky with this breed. I was looking to get a new Hydreigon (my third one!) and decided to breed this time, rather than catch in the Victory Road. In the process, I got one promising-looking Deino. Through some highly meticulous, stat-calculator-aided Audino grinding (I saved before this, so I didn't worry about stray EVs), I was able to pinpoint this Deino's IVs; it took until Lv.27 to pinpoint Sp. Defense. When I saw all the numbers, I was AMAZED.
Sp. Atk: 28
Sp. Def: 26
I kinda wish I could swap Attack and Sp. Atk, but aside from that, I'm very happy with this! The lowest IV here is 23!
For those of you who are curious, this is the strategy I have in mind for when it's ready for Wi-Fi.
Coincidentially, Hydreigon is the Pokemon I currently want to retheme myself around. The trouble is, I can't think of a good screen name related to this. Any ideas, Bulbagardeners? (It's become clear to me that "SharKing" will continue to bother me as long as I have that name, so I really need to change it.)
