=====Regional forms=====
If a Pokémon has [[regional form]]s, then its offspring will always hatch into the form native to that region. However, if a parent of a foreign form is holding an [[Everstone]] and is from the same evolutionary family as the offspring, then the offspring will hatch into that parent's form.

From {{game|Platinum}} onward, the baby will inherit three IVs, each from a different stat and from a random parent.
From {{2v2|HeartGold|SoulSilver}} onward, if either parent holds an [[EV-enhancingPower item]] (excluding the Macho Brace), the baby will instead receive the IV of the corresponding stat from that parent, then inherit two other random IVs each from a random parent; if both parents hold an EV-enhancingPower item (excluding the Macho Brace), the baby will inherit the corresponding stat to their held item from one of those parents at random. For example, if a parent is holding the Power Anklet, the baby will inherit the {{stat|Speed}} IV from that parent, and it will also inherit two other different IVs from its parents, such as Attack and Special Defense. As another example, if one parent holds a Power Anklet and the other parent holds a Power Weight, the baby will inherit either the Speed IV from the first parent or the {{stat|HP}} IV from the second parent, and it will also inherit two different IVs from its parents other than Speed or HP (whichever was successfully inherited will be the one not chosen).
====Generation V====
From {{g|X and Y}} onward, if at least one parent holds a [[Destiny Knot]], the baby will inherit five IVs instead of three.
This can be combined with an [[EV-enhancingPower item]] to ensure that one desired IV is always inherited; however, the offspring will still inherit only a total of five IVs from its parents (the EV-enhancingPower item simply guarantees which IV will be transferred for one of the five that the Destiny Knot allows).
