Talk:Chain breeding

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.

Can anyone come up with a different example of a move that requires Sketching it to pass it down? The old Heal Bell example doesn't work in Generation III and onward since Skitty, a 25% male species who learns Heal Bell by level, shares both its egg groups with Snubbull and one egg group with Chansey. --Shiningpikablu252 16:29, 25 November 2007 (UTC)

Ummm... I think something with Vulpix and Energy Ball - although I believe any Grass-type Pokémon that are in the Ground egg group and can learn Energy Ball through TM could pass it down. However, since I uh.. don't have that TM anymore, I - waitasecond. Oh, wait, no. Meganium's not in the Ground egg group. Never mind. >__>; Anyway, I'm PRETTY sure you can only pass down Energy Ball onto Vulpix via Smeargle... 281Tinaδ281 17:14, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Girafarig would like to have a word with you. So would Seedot's evolution tree and Leafeon. In fact, a valid chain for Energy Ball on Vulpix is LotadSeedotVulpix. --Shiningpikablu252 17:31, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
Maybe a list of all possible breeding chains? Or would that be ridiculous? TTEchidna 19:26, 25 November 2007 (UTC)
I think it would be really helpful, but not really feasible. Unless some daring breeder wants to take that task on... Maki 06:00, 15 February 2008 (UTC)
How would you even organize a list like that? --LynnCreed 01:27, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

Energy ball doesn't work as it is still a TM in gen 5 so you could just breed it from a Ninetails.(Maybe we could add somthing about breeding gen 4 demoted TMs and tutor moves such as dark pulse and earth power that can be breed onto a Dieno only through a pokemon that learned them in gen 4?)Dragrath1 15:12, 14 April 2011 (UTC)


The sprite for the Garchomp is a male(♂), not a female(♀). There's a notch in it's fin.--sorou 22:38, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

All better now. —darklordtrom 22:46, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
But wait, it still shows a male Garchomp!--sorou 23:04, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
I think I fixed it. Turtwig A (talk | contribs) 23:09, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Oh, Garchomp. —darklordtrom 23:13, 31 December 2009 (UTC)
Ok, thanx! I was just about to take matters into my own hands!--sorou 23:15, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

Egg calculator

The current calculator, "waiting for seedot" is outdated, being for gen IV and down, but not for gen V, is there one for gen V? --VictoryStar 03:30, 14 April 2012 (UTC)
