Before you're like "Tavin, what the hell? What the hell is wrong with it being male or female?", hear me out.
As you all know currently, the Wi-Fi for the Nintendo DS & DSi systems have has been cut off since around 2013 - 2014. It's not easy to find another person that has these games in which I can connect with to trade over a Snivy or Ditto with good IV or EV that is female, so I could breed to get myself a competitive battle-ready Serperior eventually.
It's not like X & Y where I can still connect to the internet, and trade with other individuals. So my question is this. Should I keep this great Snivy that I have right now, and go on a journey to find someone across my city that potentially has the female Snivy ( or ditto ) I'm looking for, or do I soft reset endlessly until I get the perfect female Snivy?
I know IVs are apart of breeding, but are the natures and characteristics?
Important Note: It has a Timid nature, and its characteristic is scatters things often, so I think I'm pretty set in terms of a good battle ready Snivy. As someone mentioned in my previous post ( and as I did too ), my Pokemon's IVs are bound to be a bit all over the place while playing through the main game.
