Okay so in X&Y, I save my game right next to the Day-Care Man. After saving, I pick up my egg and hatch it. I get a male Eevee (I want female) and I check its IVs and they're all perfect IVs, all 6 stats.
I soft reset the game, pick up the egg again and hatch it. Same male eevee with the same ability and all 6 perfect ivs.
I thought in older games, the egg gets its nature/abilities/ivs determined ONCE you pick up the egg. So why is it that when I save before talking to the Day-Care Man and then reset, I still end up with the same result?
Did the mechanics for resetting eggs change?
I've currently done this 5 times. I really doubt I could land a perfect 6 iv male Eevee with anticipation 5 times in a row.
