I am breeding a Togekiss for the Generation Showdown, and I was trying to get my first 5IV Pokémon via breeding. But, I ran out of time. I managed to narrow down my 15+ Togepi to these two: Togepi A and Togepi B.

Togepi A: Perfect IVs in HP, SpA, and SDef, with terrible Atk. That's what I want, as perfect Sp. Attack will help take out opposing M-Rays faster.

Togepi B: Perfect IVs in HP, Def, and SDef. It doesn't have the horrid Atk, but I can live with that. It resists Foul Play anyways. It has the Defence IVs to help it tank Dragon Ascent easier, but it loses out on the Sp. Attack boost. Which Togepi should I use for my team? (The whole team can be found in the comments of this question.) Thanks a mil!

If you can trade me a Togekiss or Togetic I could breed a 5IV pretty quickly.

Togepi A

Out of all honesty I would say both aren't good at all.

However out of the two Togepi A would be better. Terrible Atk is fine as it will do less damage to itself when confused and I doubt that Togekiss will be equipped with Physical Moves anyway.

252 Atk Life Orb Mega Rayquaza Dragon Ascent vs. 252 HP / 4 Def
Togekiss: 394-464 (105.3 - 124%) -- guaranteed OHKO

(0 Defense IVs )

252 Atk Life Orb Mega Rayquaza Dragon Ascent vs. 252 HP / 252 Def Togekiss: 298-352 (79.6 - 94.1%) -- guaranteed 2HKO after Leftovers recovery

(0 Defense IVs)

If Togekiss had max investment in Defense and HP it would survive a DA from Rayquazza.
However this would cut down the number of EVs you put into SpA. But with a perfect IV in SpA and a positive nature for SpA then I guess it would work.
But like I said I'd much rather recommended that you try breed for a better one if you can.

Hey, Astro. Personally, the second togepi is better since with a togekiss you want defenses since you'really going to be taking hits. However, to make your process easier, you can give me any of the 3iv togepi and I will do my best to breed you a 6iv one, or 5iv without attack. Have a wonderful day.
