Pokemon in same egg group wont breed?

0 votes

So a while back I got given a 6iv rotom through the wonder trade and was hoping I could breed it. Since it came through the wonder trade I thought it was a legit Pokemon however it wouldn't breed with any of the Pokemon I have in the amorphous egg group, so I thought it was because it was a traded Pokemon so I needed to breed my own using a ditto.

The problems I'm having however is that now I have multiple rotom's with 4iv's that i'm going to use to breed and get one with 5 or 6iv's when I go to breed them the message that pops up from the daycare lad is that "they prefer to play with other Pokemon" so there is a 0% chance of getting an egg from them, its the same for all of the 4iv rotom I have no matter the combination.
So my question is, what am I doing wrong/ what's the problem with the rotom I am hatching?

The only item I am using is the destiny knot, I'm playing Omega ruby and using the daycare on the battle resort.

The reason you can't breed Rotom with other Pokémon in the Amorphous Egg Group has nothing to do with it being traded.
Rotom is a genderless Pokémon, so regardless of its Egg Group, it can only breed with Ditto. This is the same for all genderless Pokémon.

Thanks for this, I just assumed that because it was in an egg group with other pokemon it could breed, my mistake then
No problem
