I recently got a Skitty from a friend and I want to breed it so I can have more. I read that if I put it with a Ditto that it should breed with my Skitty... the only issue is I don't want my Skitty to evolve into a Delcatty. How can I let my Skitty breed without fear of it evolving?

Fortunately, you don't have to worry about your Skitty evolving because:

Pokémon will not evolve while in Day Care, even if they meet the requirements to.

And because Skitty needs a Moon Stone to evolve, so even if Pokémon could evolve by level up in the Day Care, Skitty couldn't. – Rodrigo-kun Jan 31 '13 at 1:38
Even with (Skitty.getMoonStone() = false && Skitty.inDayCare() = true) stopping it from evolving, you could always give it the hold item Everstone to prevent it from evolving once more. It would then be the most prevented-from-evolving Pokemon ever. – pandorym Feb 21 '13 at 6:04
@pandorym it may be required! false * false = true? My head hurts. – Joetjah Mar 14 '13 at 10:10
