I have a Adamant Mandibuzz with its HA and I would like to have a new Mandibuzz with Roost.
What do I need to know for breeding Roost and passing down the HA and nature?

Every Pokemon on this list (under "by level up") other than Dunseparce and Dragonite is in the Flying egg group, you need to breed your Mandibuzz with one of those (that isnt a legendary, ofc.)
That includes (gen 5):

  • enter image description herePidgey and evo
  • enter image description hereSpearow and evo
  • enter image description hereHoothoot and evo
  • enter image description hereWingull and evo
  • enter image description hereChatot
  • enter image description herePidove and evo
  • enter image description hereDucklett and evo


Breed a male Unfezant (learns Roost at level 18) that has Roost with a female Mandibuzz and the offspring will have Roost.


Since your Mandibuzz is female, you'll have an 80% chance to get it's ability on the offspring.


Give one of the parents (the one with the ability you want) an Everstone, and the offspring will always have that parent's nature.

Roost can be obtained by breedin with these Pokemon:

  • Pidgey, Pidgeot, Pidgeotto
  • Spearow, Fearow
  • Hoothoot, Noctowl
  • Wingull, Pelliper
  • Chatot
  • Pidove, Tranquill, Unfezant
  • Ducklett, Swanna



If Mandibuzz is female there is an 80% chance that the ability will be passed down.

>Starting in Black 2 and White 2, there is an 80% chance that the Ability slot of the female will be passed to the baby.


Just give the parent whose nature you want passed down an Everstone. It will work every time.

>From Black 2 and White 2 onward, if one parent holds an Everstone, its Nature will always be passed down. If both parents are holding an Everstone, a parent's Nature will still always be passed down, but which parent's Nature is passed down is randomly determined.

Hope I helped.

Yay! unnecessary information!
...what exactly is unnecessary here? Pretty sure I answered what I asked.
...and added how to breed for nature and ability...
