    Trick w/ Black Sludge is intriguing. I think that in most situations, it would be more damaging to the opponent to deal an extra hit with Sludge Bomb rather than using the turn for Trick. But the Trick/Black Sludge combo could be useful in one specific situation: when the opponent is a longlasting poke (say, with a recovery move) that has an item Gengar can effectively use.

    Though Psych Up is always a decent move, there might be three difficulties with using it on this Starmie:

    (i) Starmie won't make use of the At. advantage from Swords Dance,
    (ii) Starmie is already so fast that it doesn't really need the Spe. advantage, and
    (iii) Life Orb generally increases the utility of damage-dealing moves (viz., Thunderbolt) over stat.-altering moves.

    Then again, Starmie's versatility means it can put defensive and evasive state boosts to good use.

    Murr...Tina...no offense, but I think you were slightly off with your answer to me. I've been resetting for an Eevee egg, but though the IVs have changed, the nature's been the same all 3 times.

    Hm.. thinking about it, I think it's only the IVs that are set when you talk to the daycare man. XD;;;

    Sorry for misleading you. D:

    Yeah, all 3 times it was Naughty, but then it was "Somewhat Vain," "Often Dozes Off," and then "Somewhat Vain" again, so the IVs do change. Don't worry about it

    Off-topic but - I just noticed something, after I collected my egg once I immediately talked to the old men again and he said my 2 pokemon dislike each other.. -_-|| And I was like, if they disliked each other how did they breed an egg then?

    ...this isn't a discussion thread where you talk about breeding, this is a question thread where you post questions.

    Well, I'm back -- this time with a more specific breeding question.

    I have a Luxray with 30 Sp. Atack IVs, and a Shellos with 31 Speed IVs. I want to get those IVs onto an Eevee. I know Luxray can breed with Eevee, and I have a few Eevees produced that way. I also know that Bidoof can breed with Shellos, Eevee, and Luxray. However, when I tried breeding some of my Bidoof with my Luxray or Shellos, those IVs weren't always on par with the EVs from the parents.

    My latest Bidoof, bred from my Luxray, has these IVs: 0 - 29 / 10 - 29 / 0 - 19 / 14, 19, 24, 29 / 0 - 19 / 0 - 29

    The Bidoof before that, bred from the son of my Shellos, has these IVs: 0 - 1 / 10 - 23 / 6 - 19 / 14 - 23 / 6 - 19 / 23

    What's going on? I know the IVs of the Bidoof I used to breed weren't stellar, but I thought those would be replaced by the IVs from the other parent -- instead, while they're still higher than the parent Bidoof's, they're lower than the parent Luxray/Shellos. Can anyone help me out?

    Oh, by the way...my 31 Speed IV Shellos is female, so I bred it to get a male, but the same thing happened -- the male that hatched had good Speed IVs, but not the same as the mother's. My Luxray is male, and the only female Eevee I have has these IVs: Timid #133 Eevee: 29 - 30 / 21 - 24 / 12 - 14 / 0 - 2 / 31 / 10 - 12 (HP Fire)

    Can anyone suggest a move to round out this Heatran set?

    Buckethead (Heatran, M)
    Flash Fire
    Timid

    Lava Plume
    Earth Power
    Explosion
    Hidden Power (Dragon) <- I'm looking to replace this.

    I looked up its moves. Here are my options from what I can see:
    Dragon Pulse (for more power)
    Dark Pulse (for a bit of coverage on things like Starmie)
    Flash Cannon (for STAB)

    I'm also contemplating changing Lava Plume for a different fire move. It's good enough as it is (decent base power and burn chance) but Flamethrower and Heat Wave are stronger. Failing that I could always gamble with Fire Blast, Overheat or Magma Storm. So yeah...

    Ice Punch for sure. More power and still has the freeze effect.

    depends on whom you ask. Ice punch had power. But ice Fang has flinch and freeze. It's your choice.

    I'm finding it a little hard to follow your post, and I'm not sure *exactly* what you're asking, but as far as I can tell, you're not doing anything wrong, per se. I can tell you though, that the longer you try to make a breeding chain, the harder and more frustrating it will be to get an end result with the exact EVs you want. Seriously, even when I breed with two parents where each has one of the IVs I want to pass on to the baby, for a finished product, it takes FOREVER to get it on a baby that also has the right nature/ability. This is why people like to save in front of Daycare Man, so that they can reset for the IVs if the Pokemon has the right nature/ability. I find this to be extremely tedious and not much better than just hatching as many eggs as possible, though.

    Really, my best advice would be to try to get the 30 special attack IV from your Luxray on to an Eevee (preferably female of the right nature, I'd imagine) and then just use that Eevee and try your luck for a good speed IV. You could, in that case, just try to catch or hatch any male Pokemon in the field group with an IV of 31 in speed and just breed that with your Eevee (like, if you can get the 31 from Shellos on to a male Bidoof). Still though, expect it to take a long time to be able to pass both those IVs on to a final product Eevee.

    I suggest reading this article in depth, as it explains how IVs are calculated, and you can see why it may take so long before you get what you want.
