    So I have a question about IV breeding. I have a Ditto with Max IV’s in HP/Attk/Def/Sp.Attk. Its Sp. Def & Speed have been Hyper Trained. I hatched an Eevee with Max IV’s in everything but Sp. Attack, so the off spring should guaranteed at least 5 Max IV’s right? Ditto has a Destiny Knot but the off spring got HP, Attack, & Defense at Max.

    I found my Ditto in the Wild Area Daycare Center. If you start from there, go straight & after you pass the Den on the right, go right past the 2 brick pillars and you will see a patch of grass surrounding a Den in the right corner. A purple light needs to be present for it to be a Ditto though. I think you can reach this area after the 3rd Gym?

    i have several Ditto’s i can trade, they are lvl 50-60 though & have at least 3-4 max IV’s, so if you are planning on using it for breeding, the lvl wont matter.

    Im actually going to try that in my Sword playthrough. I just traded myself a LV 50 Snorlax, so let me see if you can use it in 1-2 star raids.

    Hyper Training does not allow you to pass down iv’s of 31 it just raises the Pokémon’s stats to reflect a perfect iv. The Destiny Knot guarantees 5 iv’s chosen from the pool of 12 total iv’s from the parents will be passed down to the offspring.

    Snorlax obeys and win on the 1st turn.Lol

    Ok that explains it. Thanks for clarifying it for me. What threw me off was that I got randomly traded a 5 max IV Dreepy & every Egg I got had at least 5 max IV’s on every offspring, so I didn’t think much of it.

    What is the best method of getting a perfect IV Gmax Pokemon?

    5 star Max Raid Battles will have the best overall iv’s, but you can always use a Bottle Cap too.

    Sketchie it's about the CUBES

    Okay, I’m dumb and need help regarding the expansion pass. Is it one pass per game per switch per profile? So to get the pass for my boyfriend and I, who both own Sword and Shield, would we have to get 4 passes for both games and both profiles?? Help.

    Buy the Sword Expansion Pass and any copy of Sword that has started a save file on your system can use the DLC; likewise with Shield, obviously. DLC is system-wide. Every profile on your system draws from the same core of game data.

    To put it in your terms, it's one pass per game per Switch. No profiles involved.

    How often does the battle cafe give put the colored sweets for the evolution purposes?
  14. Auraninja

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    It's once per day, and apparently there are three (Motostoke, Hammerlock, Wyndon).

    That part I understand but I only got 2 sweets from all 3 cafes today. A sweet isn't guaranteed every yime

    Auraninja Try to understand.

    My apologies.

    If the items are equal weight (one item is just as probable as another), then you can look on Pokearth to get a probability.

    For example, there are 4 sweets out of 17 items in Hammerlocke Cafe, so the probability may be 4/17.

    np, yeah its around 5/17 chances. i only got 1/3 this round....

    yes and no. it depends on the profiles you create. or at least what region your profiles are set to. If you use a profile that is set to Australia to buy a game from the Australian eshop, you can't play that game with a North American profile.

    Unfortunately these forums aren't too big on competitive battling discussion. Your best bet might be to start a thread in the General Competitive Discussion section or Rate My Team section, although they don't seem to be updated for gen 8, or possibly the 8th gen wifi center, but that one seems to be all about trading.

    Question: I let 3 level-1 Pokemon do a job and the next day they came back at level 30.

    Would they have the same stats now if I had use them in battle? Or are they considered a little weaker (a la using Rare Candies)

    How are the accuracy of OHKO moves affected when they hit the barriers of the max raid pokemon? I remembered one miss from my past raids.
