PoJo's Pokémon Gold & Silver
(There are some Fan Breeding Tips at the Bottom of this page!)
In Gold and Silver Pokémon have genders so they can be Male and Female Poké’ critters, but if you take them to the Day-care Centre (on Route 34 south of Goldenrod city) they might… well have a little baby.
How do you get a Poké’ baby?
First of all you need to catch two Pokémon a Male and a Female Pokémon.
(= Female and = Male)
Then go to the day care centre and give the day-care Man the Male Pokémon and then give the Female Pokémon to the day-care Lady.
Keep the egg in your team of six and then go off on your Poké quest. Sometime when your just walking around you’ll stop still, and at the bottom of the screen a text box will appear and read ‘Huh?’ then the screen will go white with a egg in the middle of the screen. You’ll see the egg hatching then a little baby Pokémon will jump out! CONGRATULATIONS! You have a cute little baby Pokémon!
Can’t Breed Won’t BreedSome Pokémon like Jynx or Tauros can only have one gender so for them to have a baby you must follow these steps
First of all catch a Ditto, secondly go to the breeding centre and give e.g. Give a Jynx (which can only be Female) to the day-care Lady, then give the Ditto (no gender) to the day-care Man.
You can do the same with Tauros, (which can only be male) just give the Ditto to the day-care lady and the Tauros to the day-care Man.
Some Pokémon can’t breed these include; Articuno, Cleffa, Elekid, Entei, Ho-oh, Igglybuff, Lugia, Magby, Mew, Mewtwo, Moltres, Pichu, Raikou, Smoochum, Suicune, Togepi, Tyrogue, Unown and Zapdos.
To get Pichu, Elekid, Magby, Tyrogue, Smoochum, Cleffa and Igglybuff you’ll have to breed certain Pokémon here’s the list.
Male Pikachu / Raichu with a Female Pikachu / Raichu or a Male / Female Pikachu / Raichu with a Ditto = Pichu
Male Electabuzz with a Female Electabuzz or a Male / Female Electabuzz with a Ditto = Elekid
Male Hitmonchan / Hitmonlee / Hitmontop with a Ditto = Tyrogue
Female Jynx with a Ditto = Smoochum
Follow these tips and you’ll be amazed how many Pokémon you can hatch!
More Breeding Tips from Fans
I just read the new Article about
Pokémon Breeding in your Gold & Silver section. You wrote
that you’ll get a Cleffa by breeding two Clefairy or a Clefairy and
a Ditto. That’s only half of the truth, there are many other
combinations to get Cleffa.
You can breed a female Clefairy
with a male Snubbull for example.
The real rule to get a baby Pokémon
Female Pikachu + any male Pokémon
that likes Pikachu = Pichu
Female Magmar + any male Pokémon
that likes Magmar = Magby
Female Jigglypuff + any male Pokémon
that likes Jigglypuff = Igglybuff
Female Electabuzz + any male Pokémon
that likes Electabuzz = Elekid
Female Clefairy + any male Pokémon
that likes Clefairy = Cleffa
Female Jynx + any male Pokémon
that likes Jynx = Smoochum
+ any female Pokémon that likes Hitmonchan/Hitmonlee/Hitmontop =
Hope this clears things up.
Of course this rule is for all
Pokémon. A baby will always be of its mother’s type and have (some
of) its father’s attacks.
Here are some highlights of the
great attacks that you can get through breeding:
Male Pokémon with Baton Pass +
Female Scyther = Scyther with Baton Pass
Male Pokémon with Crunch +
Female Feraligatr = Totodile with Crunch
Male Pokémon with Safeguard +
Female Scyther = Scyther with Safeguard
Male Pokémon with Rock Slide +
Female Feraligatr = Totodile with Rock Slide
Male Pokémon with Haze + Female
Blastoise = Squirtle with Haze
Male Pokémon with Haze + Female
Dragonite = Dratini with Haze
On the Pokémon above (and many
other Pokémon), breeding is the ONLY way to get these very special
attacks called “Egg Moves”. You can’t teach them by TM, HM or

I've been reading what people have to say about the level of the Pokemon
having to do with the time it takes for the egg to hatch. i have
info here which took a LONG time to gather (trust me, roughly 230
breeds later...) and here it is:
time for eggs to hatch is dependent of the species of egg.
please note: the species mentioned in here are the LOWEST EVOLUTION,
like magby, and cleffa, or weedle, dratini, ect.
the egg is a Magikarp, it takes 1,280 steps to hatch.
the egg is a Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, or Togepi, it takes 2,560 steps
the egg is a Caterpie, Weedle, Pidgey, Rattata, Spearow, Zubat,
Geodude, Sentret, Hoothoot, Ledyba, or Spinarak, it takes 3,840 steps
the egg is a Onix, Mr. Mime, Scyther, Pinsir, Misdreavus, Heracross,
Mantine, Skarmory, Tyrouge, Smoochum, Elekid, or Magby, it takes 6,400
steps to hatch.
the egg is an Omanyte or Kabuto, it takes 7,680 steps to hatch.
the egg is an Eevee or Aerodactyl, it takes 8,960 steps to hatch.
the egg is a Chansey, Lapras, Snorlax, Dratini, or Larvitar, it takes
10,240 steps to hatch.
If the egg is anything else, it takes 5,120 steps to hatch.
And also, i have noticed that the message that it gives when you breed 2 pokemon is different and that it has to do with the ammount of time in needed for the two pokemon to lay an egg.
If it says “It appears to
care for (the other
Pokemon).” that is the fastest one to lay an egg. this
one is said when the two pokemon are different species and have
identical trainer numbers.
If it says “It’s friendly with (the other Pokemon).”, that is
the second fastest. this message appears when they are the same
species and have identical trainer numbers or when they are two
different species and have different trainer numbers.
If it says “It shows interest in (the other pokemon).”, that is
the longest. this message appears when they are the same species
and have different trainer numbers.
hope this helps the younger pokemon trainers out there.
I was reading your breeding section and you guys forgot to add the most basic rules to get a baby, 1) the two parents must have the same symbol in your pokemon lineup, and 2) the baby will be whatever the female parent is, unless you are breeding with ditto. for example, i got an eevee when i bred my female eevee with mt cyndaquil. that's just how it works out, i hope this can help other gamers. - Studmaster
In Pokemon gold and silver pokemon can be mix breed with other pokemon. Pokemon are set out into 15 different classes, several of whom overlap into a second class. Both pokemon must be opf the same group and the male must know the move that you wish the bred pokemon to know, this works also for TM's and HM's. This argueably is the best was to breed pokemon since mix bred pokemon are hatched knowing tricks that they would other wise not learn.
A Nidoran (M) that knows double kick that mates with a female Ponyta
will pass on that move.
A Hitmonlee can pass on the move rolling kick to either an elekid or
machop through a female elctrabuzz or machop.
Mix breeding does work! I have a Blastiose that knows Confusion ( via Golduck), a vulpix that knows hypnosis (via Stantler), A psyduck with psybeam (via Remoraid), and a totodile that knows crunch, rockslide, and thrash (via Tyranitar). - babysticks
