Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: How to breed Pokémon | The Sun

THERE have been some changes to the way Pokémon breeding works in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

The Daycare is gone and a new method is here instead.

Pokémon breeding is a staple of the games, to create a team with good IVs, better natures, and to increase your chance of catching Shiny Pokémon.

Here’s how breeding works and tips for tricks for different kinds of eggs in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: How to catch a Ditto for easy breeding

Ditto has long been a staple of Pokémon breeding, as it can breed with any other Pokémon.

Usually the species depends on the female, but you can only get a Ditto by breeding two of them.

They can be found in Areas Two and Three in the West Province, but they will be disguised as other Pokémon.

If you see a random Pokémon wandering off on its own, encounter it for a chance to find one.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: How does breeding at picnics work?

You create eggs at picnics, which can be set up in any area that isn’t a city.

If you have two compatible Pokémon in your party, eggs will slowly appear in your basket over time.

The basket can hold up to ten eggs, and you can choose whether to retrieve them or throw them away.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: What food makes eggs faster?

Food is a big part of the new Pokémon game, and eating different food gives you a boost for 30 minutes.

One of these is called Egg Power which increases the frequency that Pokémon create eggs.

In our experience Egg Power 2 will create 10 eggs in around five minutes. If you collect them all, they’ll start laying again.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Does Flame Body hatch eggs faster?

Despite what many originally thought, having a Pokémon with Flame Body on your team will cause Pokémon to hatch more quickly.

In fact it only takes half the time. Coalossal can have this ability, or Fletchling’s evolution Fletchinder, which can be caught in the first area.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Does the Masuda Method work?

The Masuda Method, where you breed a foreign Pokémon with yours is still the most reliable way to find a Shiny Pokémon.

There is a community Ditto for Ditto trade system. Go to Link Trade and have your Ditto ready to go before entering 4448 8444 as your code.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet: Items for competitive breeding

There are certain items sold at Delibird Presents that can help increase your Pokémon’s stats via breeding.

If the parent holds one of these items, then it changes the stat of the baby. Destiny Knot is the obvious one, which passes down five IVs.

Next is the Power Items. These items will guarantee one of the IVs from a parent will be carried over, depending on which item you use:

  • Power Weight – HP IV
  • Power Bracer – Attack IV
  • Power Belt – Defense IV
  • Power Lens – Special Attack IV
  • Power Band – Special Defence IV
  • Power Anklet – Speed IV
