I'm back to hunting after about two months of hiatus. I think I needed that break. Though I did read the rest of the thread from my last post to motivate myself, and I can tell you that the suspense goes away when I can read your signatures and see that you got the pokemon you were hunting already.
Congrats to all who haven finished hunts recently. :3
Saturday I hatched 65 shinx, finishing off my current batch of them (and bringing me to 300 shinx hatched) and Sunday I hatched 65 stunky, bringing me to 265 stunky hatched so far. My multi-hunt total is apparently now at 1,765. Not great but not awful.
I find it interesting there have been so many people asking about others' method of hatching eggs as of late. Personally I've found you've got to play around until you find which is best for you. I know that if I spend too much time gathering eggs I get bored and if I don't gather enough eggs before hatching I get frustrated. I don't know how people manage with hatching five and then SRing, I'd never be able to keep track of the amount I've hatched.
iirc using 2 power items results in Random IV transfer. If you use 2 then the game will randomly choose which one to pass down. Also, there is a chance the game wont pass down either one! So its best to use only one power item. the best way to do this would be to have a flawless parent and another parent with 1-2 flawless IVs. Put the power item on the parent with the 1-2 flawless IVs then hope you get 3 IVs from the flawless Parent. This will give you 4 flawless IVs at a minimum (if your luck) and then the other 2 would be random.
Do you have a source for that possibility of getting none? Every thing I've read and all of my experience since the power items started affecting breeding tells me that you are guaranteed at least one of the two stats if you give both parents different power items. I'm curious now as to whether or not I've been giving people false information on that one.
Though it's still not the best of ideas because it's a 50-50 chance of either nature. If one is noticeably more important to you then it's best to stick to that one.
Grrrr, been dual encountering for a couple of days and didn't wanna turn off any DS. I wake up this morning and apparently the battery died on one even though it appeared more than sufficiently charged before putting it in stand by last night. Dunno if I can be bothered to continue now.
Oh dear. D: Never, ever leave your DS for too long in standby unless you are going to put it on the charger. :c
I think you should keep trying, but that's just my opinion. Show that DS battery that it can't control you. :3
