I tried once I had female pikachu have light ball and male pikachu with nothing but then when I hatched the pichu I didn't have volt tackle so I guess it didn't work what did I do wrong?

P.S Im using Pokemon "Alpha Sapphire"


XY and ORAS breeding mechanics are virtually the same, so this should answer your question.

In order to get a Pikachu with Volt Tackle either parents of the baby pichu have to be holding a light Ball. EX: A Male Pikachu holding a light ball breeding with ditto will produce a pichu with volt tackle.

wait so i need a diito?
sorry im new to breeding
Not necessarily, as long as the other parent is capable of breeding with the pikachu evo line you can get a pichu. The key to the hatching pichu to have volt tackle is for one of the parents to be holding the light ball.
