Breeding question for Salamence?

0 votes

So I am trying to breed a good Bagon for Mega Salamence in ORAS. The Bagon I am aiming for is below:

Bagon
Ability: Rock Head (becomes Intimidate, is Bagon's normal ability)
IVs: 31/31/31/x/31/31
Jolly Nature
-Dragon Rush
-Dragon Dance

Now I have a female Salamence that's Adamant, 6IV, and knows Dragon Dance. I've also got a male Garchomp that's Jolly, 6IV, and knows Dragon Rush. If I was to give Garchomp an Everstone and Salamence a Destiny Knot, would I get the Bagon I wanted quickly? Thanks!

Your Bagon will have the "Jolly" nature, due to the new effects of the everstone (Definite chance, http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Evolutionary_stone#Everstone) and five of those IVs you wanted because of the Destiny Knot (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/In-battle_effect_item#Destiny_Knot). However, now that BOTH parents can pass down egg moves, your Bagon will, if all goes according to plan, know the moves.
(Sources for that: Experience, general knowledge from this site-look under "Game Mechanics", "Breeding and Egg Groups", scroll down to the "Passing Down Moves" subheading; http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Egg_move).
Hope I helped!
