Breeding Q on Emerald?

0 votes

So I'm breeding for the RS Special Salamence set. As I just found out, a Bagon egg cycle takes 10,000 steps, and that's a long time. And to put icing on the cake, I don't get eggs often and I am going for a Modest nature. So, if I hatched one with Hydro Pump and put that in the daycare with a Ditto that 'The two play together', will it give me Bagons with Hydro Pump at a faster rate?

Breeding rate
Same species, different ID numbers
The chance of getting an Egg is 69.3% (has a value of 70). The old man in the Day Care will say: "The two seem to get along very well."
Same species, same ID numbers
The chance of getting an Egg is 49.5% (has a value of 50). The old man in the Day Care will say: "The two seem to get along."
Different species, different ID numbers
The chance of getting an Egg is 49.5% (has a value of 50). The old man in the Day Care will say: "The two seem to get along."
Different species, same ID numbers
The chance of getting an Egg is 19.8% (has a value of 20). The old man in the Day Care will say: "The two don't seem to like each other."
Different Egg Groups, same genders or Undiscovered group
The Pokémon are incompatible and therefore will not make an Egg. The old man in the Day Care will say: "The two prefer to play with other Pokémon than each other."

Actually, the fastest way to get eggs is to get a Male Bagon / Shelgon / Salamence with Hydro Pump and a Female Bagon / Shelgon / Salamence with one of the two traded. They must be the same species. In this way, you'll get an a 69.3% chance of an egg. You can do them both with your ID number, which is a lower rate of 49.5%. Or you can replace the female Bagon / Shelgon / Salamence with a Ditto (with a different ID number), and get the 49.5 chance also. These are really the fastest ways.

So, recap:

  • Same Species, different ID numbers
  • Same Species, same ID numbers
  • Different Species, different ID numbers

For all the above, make sure the MALE knows Hydro Pump.
