    Default Breeding is really being made easier this time around...

    We already knew about the additions to the Pokétchi and the Emerald ability boosters also remai. Now here's the latest piece of news...

    Since Ditto is used a lot for breeding anyway, this is yet another neat convenience from Game Freak.

    Well now.

    That's certainly unexpected.

    Kinda like Smeargle, then, but without the annoying "wait 25 levels" thing. I like.

    Did everyone see that thing about Designing Pokeballs on Serebii as well? That sounds sweet as well! And a way to express my creativityness through girlish arts and crafts project!

    Can't use it in communication though apparently. Probably because it wouldn't work in so far as your opponent seeing you sending your Pokemon out or something.

    Also, breeding moves is so extremely tedious anyway so I'm heartily glad they've improved upon it with this alongside the other nice little bonuses they've been creeping in. Seems like Gamefreak are really looking to appeal to the hardcore fans now as well as the little "zomgzpikachu!" kids borne of the fad.

    Hmm... this seems useful, but what are the rules for it? Does Ditto count as the "male" for passing on TM's when breeding with a female? Otherwise, it would only be passing on level-up moves it had in common with the other parent. In previous versions this is untestable, as Ditto only had Transform, and no-one learned that move except Ditto and Mew. Not that I'm saying using this to learn a level-up move early is a bad thing!

    Unless they've changed the descent rules, of course.

    While I'd imagine that this is a bug, not intentional, it'd certainly make things a hell of a lot easier, in getting some of those breeding moves.

    if thats so though then you can guarantee it'll be fixed when the NTSC and PAL editions are released.

    NTSC and PAL are TV terms. The DS is not a TV.

    ...Mew can't breed though.

    I don't think it's meant to be implied that Mew can breed, just that Transform keeps the Pokemon's moves transform...transformed into.

    Right, so we're really only talking about Ditto here, since this topic is about breeding. Our favorite little amoebic blob of goo has proven himself ACTUALLY useful now twice over in recent years. Wish I could say the same about some other Pokemon. Like Nosepass. Come ON, it's based on the idea of the "compass" inside everyone's nose, make it help you navigate, or be a psuedo-Itemfinder, or do something useful for putting us through the agony of having to own one to complete the Dex.

    Has anybody researched Ditto move-inheritance alongside Ditto nature-inheritance? As in, could you breed an Adamant Ditto with Rock Slide and holding Everstone with a female Blaziken and get Adamant Torchics with Rock Slide? With a male Blaziken, same situation? In other words, can Ditto act as BOTH male and female at the same time, effectively killing two birds with one stone?
