Gotta Breed Them All: Poochyena / Mightyena – Best Egg Moves, Ability, Nature and IV spread

This is the first post in a series ‘Gotta Breed Them All’. In this series I outline what I believe to be the ideal breedable break-down of each Pokémon. My intention is to go through most of the Hoenn Pokédex.

A lot of the break-downs are based on smogon and/or other sources. If available I will always breed the Hidden Ability (HA) of a pokémon, regardless of whether it is more competitively viable or not. The reason for this is because of a HA’s rareness and because HA pokémon still hatch non-HA pokémon. As such, it would still be able to obtain the more competitively viable ability.

Pokéballs: My aim is to always breed down a cool pokéball when possible. As such, if you’re someone who doesn’t care for the pokéball then breeding will be a lot quicker for you.

And now, without further a-do. I shall start off with my ideal breeding set-up for Poochyena.

  1. Pokémon: Poochyena
  2. Nature: Adamant
  3. Ability: Rattled (HA)
  4. IV’s: 5IV (-Sp.Atk)
  5. Egg Moves:
    1. Fire Fang
    2. Thunder Fang
    3. Ice Fang
    4. Play Rough
  6. How I did it:
    1. Finding a Female HA Poochyena:
      1. Searched for a Female HA Poochyena using Dex Nav.
      2. Once found, caught it using a Luxury Ball.
      3. Check Poochyena’s moves and see if it knows any egg moves already. Make sure to remove any unwanted egg moves, otherwise it will mess up the breeding process.
    2. Getting pokémon for breeding Egg moves:
      1. For Poochyena’s egg moves, they could all be passed down from a Stoutland.
      2. Obtained a  Male Stoutland off the GTS.
      3. Went to the Move Reminder and taught Stoutland: Fire Fang, Thunder Fang and Ice Fang.
      4. Levelled Stoutland to level 63 and taught it Play Rough.
    3. Getting a Poochyena with the right egg moves and ability:
      1. Placed Poochyena and Stoutland into day care.
      2. Bred Poochyena’s until I obtained a Female HA Poochyena with 4 egg moves (18 hatched eggs).
      3. Checked IV’s at battle resort: 1 perfect IV (+Atk).
    4. Getting the right IV’s and Nature:
      1. Placed the 1 IV Poochyena in daycare with a 6 IV ditto (holding destiny knot).
      2. Bred until I obtained a higher IV Female HA Poochyena (3 IV’s +Atk,+Sp.Atk,+Sp.Def) (+3 hatched eggs)
      3. Swapped 1 IV Poochyena with 3 IV Poochyena
      4. Bred until I obtained a higher IV Female HA Poochyena (5 IV’s -Def) (+8 hatched eggs)
