==Length of time to breed==
After getting frustrated by the time it took to breed on my old silver version, I looked around for information on how long it takes two pokemon to have an egg, and I found [http://www.angelfire.com/wizard/rossos_pokemon/breeding.html this site]. This is information I think bulbapedia needs. The problem is, I don't have any other sources on it, it doesn't say if the formula holds true for later Gens as well, and the author admits that his numbers are estimates. Does anyone know anything about this topic? [[User:Cheesus Is Lord|Cheesus Is Lord]] 22:09, 24 April 2008 (UTC)
:I do not think that those numbers are accurate. I searched all up and down the Smogon breeding explanation, and I can't find anything discussing that. Because they go into detail about 3rd gen. egg taking/hatching methods for different egg counter numbers; I believe it would be integral to include, if they exist, the amount of 'time' it takes for a new egg to be available. As far as my (brief) personal experience goes, there have been times when I have so many eggs to take from the man that I'll have to take one of the parents out of the daycare so they stop breeding so fast. There have also been times when I have had to do 2 or 3 more passes before they have one. I am sure there is some formula for it, but it may have more to do with random numbers.--[[User:Lamb|<span style="color:green">Lamb</span>]]<small>''([[User talk:Lamb|<span style="color:brown">talk</span>]])''</small> 03:10, 24 February 2010 (UTC)
== Female Eevees ==
::In the game data - the user wishes to know if once the player receives the egg, the gender of the hatched Pokemon has already been set. In my experience, yes, along with the nature. But I could have just been really unlucky. &mdash; <small>[[User talk:The dark lord trombonator|<font color="#0000C8">THE TROM</font></small>]] &mdash; 20:54, 1 February 2009 (UTC)
::: It is definitely set when it hatches. I have hatched an army of Scyther (trying to get one with a "Rash" nature) and the gender and nature were always the same for the pokemon, even if i saved the game before it hatched, had it do so, and restarted it. So yes, gender and nature are determined when the Egg is conceived. Also, if makes since if you think about the hereditary moves, TM it can learn, etc when you pick which Pokémon you want to breed to get the egg. --[[User:Blaziken=Tahu|Blaziken=Tahu]] 20:50, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
