Pokémon breeding

No change in size, 04:18, 30 October 2018
* Some unusual pairings of Pokémon can be found within the Egg Groups, such as {{p|Seviper}} and {{p|Zangoose}} (which are even said to be mortal enemies), and the most famous pairing {{Appendix|Fan terminology#HSOWA|Skitty and Wailord}}. However, the characters in the game make special mention of the fact that no one has seen Pokémon breed.
* {{p|NidorinaNidoking}} and {{p|Nidoqueen}} cannot breed, despite the fact that the {{p|Nidoran♂}} line and {{p|Nidoran♀}} can.
* Although [[Legendary Pokémon]], [[Mythical Pokémon]], and [[Ultra Beasts]] except {{p|Manaphy}} (and debatably {{p|Phione}}) cannot breed in the [[core series]] games, {{pkmn|Egg}}s containing {{p|Articuno}}, {{p|Zapdos}}, and {{p|Moltres}} can be hatched in [[Pokémon Snap]] and a baby {{p|Lugia}} has been seen in the {{pkmn|anime}}. Likewise, {{p|Manaphy}} can be hatched from a special Egg from {{ga|Pokémon Ranger}} in the Generation IV games.
* When a Pokémon hatches from an Egg during both [[Generation II]] and [[Generation III]], it is at [[level]] 5. However, many Pokémon from the wild can be found between levels 2 and 4, which is below the level of newly hatched Pokémon. This oddity had since been addressed from [[Generation IV]] onwards, where all hatched Pokémon start at level 1.
