    This question that some one wrote on this forum buggs me alittle. How do you work it out, do we use maths or suitable pokemon reasoning?

    Anyway have a go and see what you get.


    Let's say I have two bulbasaurs of opposite gender. I breed them. The male bulbasaur has a 31 IV in attack and the female bulbasaur has a 28IV. What is the probability that the offspring will have 31 IV in attack?

    Neither, their offspring will actually be a Chikorita due to recessive genes in the Bulbasaur ancestry.

    It gets pretty damn complicated when you breed for IVs.

    No exactly but I want to know if this question can be answerd or if it is a stupid pokemon questions which you need to be a pokenerd to answer.

    I thinks it's 50% in genetical terms.

    Male Bulbasaurs are known for bad genes, so it'll probably only have 3 legs.

    You have to consider the genetic attack scores (when they are first born) as attack can also be gained environmentally through experience and 1-UPs.

    Seeing as Pokemon are very inexperienced when they are born, it is unlikely that any new Pokemon will have attack scores of more than 15.

    you instinctively assume the bulbasaurs are both heterosexual and fertile...
    the chances of this are roughly o.382...
    you're better off trying a pair of these: :pika:
    their fertility rates are second to none and they are homophobes in general

    good luck mate

    Wrong because bulbasaur has an epistatic gene ensuring that its offspring are always bulbasaur.
