Whats the best moveset for Umbreon with Relaxed nature but no Wish egg move? Does it still need baton pass?
EVs: 252 HP / 4 Def / 252 SpD
- Heal Bell?
- Foul Play?
Thanks for the reply, I sucked it up and just bread my butt off. Getting a 6iv Magby took 8 generations but I finally did it.Welcome to suffering. I went that way when breeding a competitive hp ice Naive ha Pikachu.
You just basically suck it up and chainbreed the decent female Magbys if you want to preserve a ball. If you have one of those 6iv ditto thing become easier as you could use a 4iv-5iv female Magyar second generation with a desired father of the egg group.
God...i freaking loathe baby Pokémon...i can't actually believe people want more of these breeding speed bumpers every new gen.

Not too terrible but it was definitely annoying to have to level each Magby.
e: Now for the joy of breeding a physical Elekid with egg moves.
is there a trick to using endeavor in battles? its not for competitive but for play in casual battling. does endeavor have to run second or do you need atleast 99%HP for it to work?
Endeavor sets your opponent's HP to be equal to your own current HP. As a result, your HP has to be less than your opponent's HP, or it fails. Most use of Endeavor relies on Focus Sash/Sturdy to be effective, since surviving a lethal hit with either puts you at 1 HP, which will in turn allow Endeavor to do likewise to your opponent.
I have a somewhat difficult request:
Would someone here please teach me how to battle respectably?
Before I get bashed with 'use google' or 'this isnt the place for this' (sorry if it's not; I couldn't find anywhere else to post it), I want to say that I do not and will not use smogon.
Reasons being that they outright ban legitimate moves, abilities, etc. that are made into the game thus closing many options, and rank half the pokemon in existance in their 'PU' tier, which I find sickening.... Now that that's out of the way, I also want to say that I HAVE Googled numerous guides on this, and I've read the newcomer guides on team building, and learned absolutely nothing about HOW to battle. I need a living person to show me the ropes.
I know how to breed and I can breed basically anything with 5-6Vs, nature, moves, etc. but I don't know what setups I should use, what pokemon I should have on a team, or what moves I should use and when.
I've been searching google for forums and reddits (which was met with utter rudeness btw) and haven't found a single person who'll help me. I've been on Showdown! and that didn't really help me either. The reason I ask for this help is that I have friends IRL who play pokemon, and I really want to be able to actually DO things with them. The issue is that they are ridiculously experienced whereas I've only fought 2 battles (lost them both btw), one of them being with one of my friends. I can't ask them to teach me, either. Why would they help train their enemy...?
Anyways, if anyone can help PLEASE contact me ASAP. Sorry for the giant wall of text; I tried to space it out and make it easier to read :/ And thanks for reading it to begin with.
Ive seen some people asking for Ditto with certain HP. Why do they need them? I know why people need 6IV Ditto, but why does the ditto has to have certain HP? Isnt HP breeding kinda random since it depends on IVs which is calculated randomly?
If for example I want a HP Fire ditto, is the chance of me getting it 100%, if I breed a snivy with a HP fire ditto?
Right, now, I am not a very good battler myself, but, I'm decentish. Now, your problem is you do not wish to follow Smogon, which is totally acceptable. But, the tier system that is made on Smogon is very, very helpful in making teams. For Example, if you use two Pokemon from OU, they will be more compatible than any two random Pokemon. It also helps you decide a set for a Pokemon. If you do not wish to follow tier system, you can simply add a Pokemon, maybe a Pokemon with Rocks or spikes, or Set up some weather moves or even stat boost Pokemon. Once a set is decided for that particular Pokemon, you can make a team around it. More than anything, keep battling and adjust your team according to your needs. Battle as much as you can. More that that, ask your IRL friends to help you maybe?
Hello all! I will be participating in a competitive battling event at a local anime con as the Dragon Type Elite 4 (6v6). Last year I was the Dragon Type Gym Leader (3v3), and had done fairly well against my challengers. With the exception of the Skill-Linked Cloysters. I am hoping that some of you may have advice for me in regards to not being swept by the same fate this year. My team is as follows: Mega Charizard X, Dragonite, Haxorus, Hydreigon, Kingdra, and Goodra. However, I apologize that I will not be able to publicly list any more information about my team. Thanks in advance for any help you may provide!!
