Right now, I am in the process of having only one of each Pokemon, and having it be the best of it’s kind. LOL. I am playing Pokemon Pearl, and I do not have wifi for it right now, nor do I have any GBA Pokemon games to enhance my current game. So I am limited on which pokemon I can acquire at the moment, in-game pokemon only.
I am starting at the beginning, which means #16 in the national Pokedex, Pidgey. First off: breeding a Pidgey egg. I choose to hatch my perfect Pidgey from an egg instead of catching one for a couple of reasons. Hatched pokemon are said to have better stats than ones caught in the wild. But my main reason for hatching my Pidgey is for the egg moves. This way, my Pidgey can learn moves that it could not know otherwise, and can also learn moves earlier than it would normally.
To breed my Pidgey, I have to have a female Pidgey so that is will leave a Pidgey egg. Done. A wild female Pidgey can be caught during a mass outbreak on Route 229. I already had a female Pidgey, so I did not have to wait for another mass outbreak.
I need to know what moves are available to breed into my hatched Pidgey, and then decide which one(s) I want my Pidgey to have.
Here are all the “egg moves” available to be bred into a hatched Pidgey, and which male pokemon you will need to breed it with in order to give your hatched Pidgey that specific move (note: the male will have to actually already know the move before he can pass it on to the egg!):
