About Pokemon breeding
Pokémon breeding is a part of the Pokémon series gameplay that is used to obtain eggs. In Diamond/Pearl , Trainers could pay to drop off their Pokémon at Pokémon Day Care. In Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl , the daycare was replaced with a nursery. Despite having similar mechanics, there are some differences.
Anyone who wants more than one Pokémon of a certain species should use the Nursery. Some Pokémon in Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl are extremely rare and tedious to catch. So it’s easier to catch the Pokemon and breed it with another Pokemon from the same Egg Group, or a Ditto.
Where and what is the Pokémon Nursery?
Upon arriving in Hearthome City, Trainers will not be able to fight Fantina until they have the third and fourth Gym Emblems. They will then be taken along Route 209 to reach the town of Veilstone, but there is a town between Hearthome and Veilstone.
The Pokemon Nursery is located in Solaceon Town , which is the first city trainer you will arrive before reaching Veilstone. To get there, take the exit on the right from Hearthome City to get to Route 209 . Go north on Route 209 to reach Solaceon Town.
Fortunately, Pokemon Nursery isn’t hard to find. It’s the house northeast of Solaceon next to an area surrounded by Pokémon . While Pokemon Nursery is worth checking out, Trainers can also visit the house to the right of the Pokemon Center and receive Heart Scales by completing Daily Tasks.
Specifically, Pokemon Nursery will allow trainers to raise two Pokemon of compatible species . Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl players can get Eggs from certain NPCs (the walker in Hearthome and Riley on Iron Island), but Nursery is for those who want a specific Pokémon that doesn’t exist in the wild, or is hard to catch.
Inside is the Pokemon Nursery Lady. She will take care of a trainer’s Pokémon for 500 Pokémon Dollars, or two Pokémon for 1,000 Pokémon Dollars. Unlike the Day Care of previous generations, Pokémon left in the Nursery will not level up or learn new moves . Because of that, it’s free when taking Pokémon back from the nursery.
Getting Pokemon Eggs
Pokémon will breed with other Pokémon if they meet the following criteria:
- One parent Pokémon must be male, the other must be female.
- OR one Parent Pokémon can be male or female, and the other Parent Pokémon must be Ditto.
- Both Pokémon must share an Egg Group.
- Pokémon that are left in the Nursery and share the same Trainer ID are less likely to produce eggs . However, obtaining Morimoto’s Egg Charm on Route 213 (post-game only) increases the chance of Pokemon Eggs appearing in Pokemon Nursery.
Talk to the Pokemon Nursery Man outside the Nursery to check the Pokemon’s status or to get an egg (if any). If it says » The two prefer to play with other Pokémon more than with each other «, then the Pokémon will not produce an egg. This occurs if the Pokémon are of the same sex, do not have compatible egg groups, or are both ditto .
Pokémon will produce more Eggs if they are of the same species and have different Trainer IDs . However, as long as two Pokémon share a Group of Eggs, they will still produce Eggs, but the possibilities are much smaller.
