Egg.pngBreeding – The Master GuideEgg.png

Hey there, I'm Reshiwott! You might see me on the server with the nickname 'ReshiTHOT'. Thanks, Exies. I'm going to be walking you through everything to do with the magical process of Pokémon doing the sexy time – breeding!

Egg.pngWhat is Breeding and How Does It Benefit Me?Egg.png

Breeding is what happens when two Pokémon mate and produce a baby. This baby will be produced as an egg. Breeding can be beneficial in multiple ways because:


  • You get another Pokémon! (If you're breeding a rare Pokémon like Dratini or Eevee, this could make you money!) This Pokémon is the lowest evolution level of the female in the breeding process.
  • You can control the IVs and nature of a Pokémon! (More on that later...)
  • If two Pokémon with different original trainers breed, there is a 1/4096 chance of the offspring being shiny. This is double the normal chance! (1/8192)

Egg.pngSo What Do I Need to Breed?Egg.png

You will require:
  • 1 Ranch Block
  • 2 Pokemon (1 Male and 1 Female, or 1 Ditto + any non-legendary) that share an egg group
    Note: Genderless Pokémon (like Staryu) can only breed with Ditto, and Legendaries cannot breed at all.
  • Required blocks for types
  • Optional: Ranch Upgrades

Grid_Ranch_Block.pngRanch Block?Grid_Ranch_Block.png
A ranch block is a Pixelmon block which can be crafted like so: dimH9Bl.png
To put two Pokémon in a ranch block (this allows them to breed), you must first put them in the PC. Next, right click the ranch block and click 'Manage Pokémon'. Finally, select the 2 Pokémon you wish to breed and click on them in the GUI screen. This should put the 2 Pokémon in the ranch block.
Egg.pngBlocks?Egg.png

You can find the blocks that each type requires to breed here.
Each of a Pokémon's types needs 139 satisfaction points for it to reach maximum satisfaction. This can be achieved through:
  • 47 x Blocks that give 3 satisfaction points
  • 70 x Blocks that give 2 satisfaction points
  • 139 x Blocks that give 1 satisfaction point

You can right click a Pokémon while it is stood in the breeding area and it will give a message.
Different messages mean different things:

“Pokemon 1 has a crush on Pokemon 2, but it doesn't feel comfortable in this environment!”

This means the Pokémon will not breed. Adjust the environment.

“Pokemon 1 likes Pokemon 2 a tiny bit more every day!”

The Pokémon will take 2 hours 30 minutes to breed.

“Pokemon 1 is more attracted to Pokemon 2 every day!”

The Pokémon will take 1 hour 15 minutes to breed.

“Pokemon 1's love for Pokemon 2 grows rapidly every day!

The Pokémon will take 50 minutes to breed.

“Pokemon 1 falls madly in love with Pokemon 2 every single day!”

The Pokémon will take 37.5 minutes to breed.

“Pokemon 1 loves Pokemon 2 as much as possible!”

If both Pokémon say this, they have made an egg! You can collect this from the ranch block by right clicking it, then clicking 'Claim Egg'.

There will be multiple stages of hearts appearing above the Pokémon. For the first stage, there will be no hearts. Hearts will then begin to appear above your Pokémon in this order:
Grey -> Purple -> Blue -> Yellow -> Red
When both Pokémon have Red hearts above them, they will have made an egg.

Egg.pngWait, Egg Groups!?Egg.png

Think of an egg group like a Pokémon's typing, but for breeding. If two pokemon share an egg group, they can breed, provided they are opposite genders. Here's a list of every Pokémon and its egg group:

Grid_Ranch_Upgrade.pngRanch Upgrades? What?Grid_Ranch_Upgrade.png

A Ranch Upgrade is an item which can be obtained from Pickup, Bosses or Pokéloot. Right clicking a ranch with it will give you the option to expand the ranch by one row/column in that direction. (-X being to the left, +X to the right, +Z being upwards and -Z being downwards) This allows more blocks to be detected, making it easier to get maximum satisfaction. Ranches begin as 9x9 and can be maxed at 15x15. (The block under the ranch block will not be detected.)

Egg.pngItems in BreedingEgg.png

In breeding, a Pokémon can be holding an item, just like it would if you were to use it for battle. Some items are extremely useful, these items are:

Power Weight: Passes down the holder's HP IV to the baby. Grid_Power_Weight.png
Power Bracer: Passes down the holder's Attack IV/ to the baby.Grid_Power_Bracer.png
Power Belt: Passes down the holder's Defence IV to the baby.Grid_Power_Belt.png
Power Lens: Passes down the holder's Special Attack IV to the baby.Grid_Power_Lens.png
Power Band: Passes down the holder's Special Defence IV to the baby.Grid_Power_Band.png
Power Anklet: Passes down the holder's Speed IV to the baby.Grid_Power_Anklet.png
Destiny Knot: Passes down 5 random IVs between both of the parents, regardless of which Pokémon is the holder.Grid_Destiny_Knot.png
Everstone: Passes down the holder's Nature to the baby.Grid_Everstone.png

Egg.pngBut What Do IVs and Nature Mean?Egg.png

Ivs are a Pokémon's genetics. Once a Pokémon has spawned or been obtained as an egg, its Ivs are decided. These cannot be changed at any point. Ivs range from 1 to 31 in every stat. (0-31 in the games.)

For example, a Pokémon may have an IV spread of 17/23/28/15/31/13. This would mean it has 17 HP Ivs, 23 Attack Ivs, 28 Defence Ivs, 15 Special Attack Ivs, 31 Special Defence Ivs, and 13 Speed Ivs.

At level 100, these Ivs make a huge difference, as each IV counts towards 1 stat point. For example, A Starmie with 31 Special Attack Ivs will have 30 more Special Attack points than a Starmie with 1 Special Attack IV. You can do /ivs (Pokémon slot) to find out the Ivs of your Pokémon. (eg. If you have a Starmie in slot 1, do /ivs 1)

Usually, without any items in use, 3 IVs are passed down between both parents. For example, this could be 2 IVs from parent A and 1 from parent B, etc.

Nature is also unchangable once the Pokémon's existence has begun. A nature increases one stat by 10% and decreases another by 10%, or does nothing at all.
Here's a list of every nature and what it does.

Egg.pngGrowthsEgg.png

As you may know, Pokémon in the wild can have different growths, varying between Pygmy and Enormous. In breeding, these can be amplified even more: Say hello to Microscopic and Ginormous growths! Microscopic Pokémon are 0.33x the Pokémon's size at Ordinary, while Ginormous Pokémon are 1.66x larger than the Ordinary.

Now how do we get these, you ask?
Simple, we breed tiny/massive Pokémon. Two Pygmys breeding have a 1/3 chance to produce a Microscopic Pokémon, while 2 Enormous Pokémon breeding have a 1/3 chance to produce a Ginormous. Breed until you get there because size matters!

Egg.pngEgg Moves Egg.png


Egg moves are moves that can only be inherited through breeding. Some of these moves are extremely helpful in competitive battling (eg. Lucario with Blaze Kick) and some are... really not. (eg. Horsea with Splash)

How do we get these moves? Breed two Pokémon in the same egg group, with the male parent having the move you want to put on the offspring. (If the female has this move that is fine, just remember the female decides the species of the offspring!)

For example, I'm breeding a Male Lucario with a Female Machop. Lucario has the move Close Combat, therefore the baby Machop will have it, as it can inherit it.

Note: Look up a Pokémon on Google to see what egg moves it can inherit and from what Pokémon!


Egg.pngHatchingEgg.png

Alright, so you've bred your two Pokémon and you've got an egg. 'How the hell do I hatch it?' You say. Well, you're gonna have to walk. A really, really long way.

Eggs will hatch after the player has taken enough 'steps'. A step is the same as walking for the same amount of time as it would take to walk 2 blocks at normal speed. Any increases in speed (flyspeed, flying, potions, etc) do not make a difference on how fast the egg hatches, however having a Pokémon with the ability Flame Body or Magma Armour in your party will halve the time needed for the egg to hatch.

Thanks for reading this guide! If I've missed anything or you'd like help with anything breeding related, message me in game!
