I plan on breeding two pokemon (one in a timer ball and one in a pokeball) and I want the pokemon to be in a normal Pokeball. Which one will it get?

For Female - Male breeding (standard):

  • The Pokeball the child inherits will be of the Female's Pokeball

For Female - Ditto breeding (no Male to breed with):

  • The Pokeball the child inherits will be of the Female's Pokeball

For Male - Ditto breeding (no Female to breed with):

  • The Pokeball the child inherits will be a Pokeball, regardless of what Pokeball Ditto is in

For Ungendered - Ditto Breeding (breeding Rotom, Unown, etc.)

  • The Pokeball the child inherits will be a Pokeball, regardless of what Pokeball Ditto is in

    Ditto don't breed with Ditto. (Yes, really) – Raven Dreamer Nov 20 '13 at 4:51

    The third bullet is wrong. I have bred several Pokemon with my Quick Ball Ditto and all the children are in Pokeballs. – Yuuki Nov 21 '13 at 0:49
  • "The Pokeball the child inherits will be of the Female's Pokeball", but this won't work with Cherish Ball and Master Ball, the child will inherit a Pokeball anyway. – pinckerman Feb 6 '15 at 0:00

Well now in X & Y, it is the ball that the mother was in. So if the female of the two breeding is in the timer ball the baby pokemon will also be in a timer ball.

"With breeding in the past, whenever you had an egg, the Pokémon that hatched from it would always be within a standard Poké Ball. However, as of Pokémon X & Y, this all changes. From now on, the Poké Ball the egg hatches in is now solely based upon the ball that the mother was caught in. So, if you're breeding a female Pokémon you caught in a Dusk Ball with a male Pokémon in a Cherish Ball, the baby will always be inside the Dusk Ball. This won't work with the Master Ball, however."

  • Dang. That means I have to keep searching for a Nidoran with Hustle – Shadow Z. Nov 20 '13 at 4:18
  • @ShadowZorgon I edited with quote and source if you wanted further proof. :) And why do you just want the regular Pokeball? I personally like the look of the timer ball anyway. – Fogolicious Nov 20 '13 at 4:20
  • In fact, the best Pokeball to use in breeding would be the Luxury ball, as it doubles the happiness earned for any Pokemon. This means that you can avoid the absurd costs for those Pokeballs and afford to have them on ever baby Pokemon you breed. – senpai Nov 20 '13 at 4:46
  • @Retrosaur - with Soothe Bell & Befriending o-power I've never had a need for luxury balls – Robotnik Feb 7 '14 at 0:50
  • @fogolicious I prefer to keep my team to one PokeBall unless there is a specific or one I can not easily change. My Nidoqueen was the only one w/out it. The only one w/out a normal PokeBall is my Shiny Spiritomb, who is in a Dusk Ball. – Shadow Z. Feb 7 '14 at 1:26
