Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why won't this work?

1 vote

I'm breeding a lv 100 female Swampert holding a Destiny Knot with a male Amaura that knows Avalanche. I get the eggs, but they don't know Avalanche!
Amaura doesn't know any other egg moves and my game isn't hacked for sure. I can provide any other info necessary. Please help!

It's possible that you don't have enough space for that exact move.

Don't take my word for this 100%, I'm unsure of it myself.

Prior to Generation VI, if the father knows any TM or HM moves (and in Crystal, Move Tutor moves) that the baby is also compatible with, it will inherit the move

If the father or (starting in Generation VI) the mother knows any specific Egg moves that the baby can learn, the baby will inherit the move. If the parents both know different Egg moves, the father's Egg moves are passed on first, then followed by the mother's.

The only explanation I can come up with right now is that the parents know some TM or HM moves the offspring can learn, along with the father knowing any possible egg moves(for example Mud bomb) and the offspring just doesn't have enough moveslots to learn Avalanche.

If you have any more info, tell me in the comment and I will help you and edit the answer as needed.
Otherwise I don't think anything can prevent it. :/

No I'm sure that's not it.  The offspring have 3 moves (none are avalanche).  Thanks for trying.  I just can't figure it out :/ If I find any more info i'll let you know
Alright, I'll be glad to help if I can.

Are you positive your Amaura still knows Avalanche? If it has leveled up in the Day-Care, it may have overwritten the move with a new level-up move.

Nope I just took it out and checked.
