Gold, Silver and Crystal Breeding: Breeding Compatibility |

You've probably noticed that not all Pokémon can reed, however some unusual combinations are possible. You can't breed a Primeape with a Machamp, but you can breed a Delibird with a Blastoise. Why is this? It's because all Pokémon fall into sixteen different breeding categories. Underneath is a guide to all the groups.

Group X

EXPLANATION: These Pokémon cannot be bred with anything.

Pokémon in this group: Nidorina, Nidoqueen, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Mewtwo, Mew, Pichu, Cleffa, Igglybuff, Togepi, Unown, Tyrogue, Smoochum, Elekid, Magby, Raikou, Entei, Suicune, Lugia, Ho-oh and Celebi.


EXPLANATION: These are the plant Pokémon. You can breed any two members of this group to get a baby of the female. For example, you can breed a Chikorita and an Oddish, two Jumpluff, a Sunkern and a Sunflora etc. You can also breed all of them with a Ditto to get a "clone" of that Pokémon.

Pokémon in this group: Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Golbat, Gloom, Vileplume, Paras, Parasect, Bellsprout, Weepinbell, Victreebell, Exeggcute, Exeggutor, Tangela, Chikorita, Bayleef, Meganium, Bellossom, Hoppip, Skiploom, Jumpluff, Sunkern and Sunflora.

EXPLANATION: The Bug group Pokémon. These can be all be bred with any members of the same group. They can also be bred with a Ditto. You'll notice Paras and Parasect are in both groups - 1 and 2. This is because they can breed with members of both groups. You'll also notice Gligar here - a Flying/Ground Pokémon. It doesn't matter - Gligar can only be bred with Bug types.

Pokémon in this group: Caterpie, Metapod, Butterfree, Weedle, Kakuna, Beedrill, Paras, Parasect, Venonat, Venomoth, Scyther, Pinsir, Ledyba, Ledian, Spinarak, Ariados, Yanma, Pineco, Forretress, Gligar, Scizor, Shuckle and Heracross.

Pokémon in this group: Goldeen, Seaking, Magikarp, Gyarados, Chinchou, Lanturn, Qwilfish, Remoraid and Octillery.


EXPLANATION: The final Water group. Again, they can breed with each other and with Ditto. Corsola was also in group 8.

Pokémon in this group: Tentacool, Tentacruel, Shellder, Cloyster, Krabby, Kingler, Omanyte, Omastar, Kabuto, Kabutops and Corsola.


EXPLANATION: The Monster group. This group includes all the starters except Cyndaquil. You can breed them with each other and with a Ditto. All the Pokémon here belong to other groups as well, except for Cubone, Marowak, Lickitung, Kangaskhan, Snorlax, Larvitar, Pupitar and Tyranitar.

Pokémon in this group: Bulbasaur, Ivysaur, Venusaur, Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Squirtle, Wartortle, Blastoise, Nidoran male and female, Nidorino, Nidoking, Slowpoke, Slowbro, Cubone, Marowak, Lickitung, Rhyhorn, Rhydon, Kangaskhan, Lapras, Snorlax, Chickorita, Bayleef, Meganium, Totodile, Croconaw, Feraligatr, Mareep, Flaaffy, Ampharos, Slowking, Larvitar, Pupitar and Tyranitar.

Pokémon in this group: Pikachu, Raichu, Clefairy, Clefable, Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff, Chansey, Marill, Azumarill, Hoppip, Skiploom, Jumpluff, Snubbull, Granbull and Blissey.


EXPLANATION: The Dragon group Pokémon. All these are members of other groups as well. They can breed with each other and Ditto.

Pokémon in this group: Charmander, Charmeleon, Charizard, Ekans, Arbok, Horsea, Seadra, Magikarp, Gyarados, Dratini, Dragonair, Dragonite and Kingdra.


EXPLANATION: These are all genderless Pokémon. With the exception of group X and group 15, all genderless Pokémon can successfully breed with a Ditto, but nothing else. These Pokémon cannot breed with each other - breeding one with a Ditto will give you a clone of the other Pokémon. None of these Pokémon are members of other groups.

Pokémon in this group: Magnemite, Magneton, Voltorb, Electrode, Staryu, Starmie, Porygon and Porygon2.


EXPLANATION: The final group contains only one Pokémon - Ditto. The exception to all rules. Breed anything in groups 1-14 with a Ditto to get a level 5 version of that Pokémon. If you have a male Pokémon and want to breed another, youd have to use Ditto. For example, if Bill gives you a male Eevee, the only way to get another is by breeding it with a Ditto. The only way to get more Tyrogues is by breeding one of the Hitmons with a Ditto. The only way to get another Tauros through breeding is by breeding with a Ditto.

Pokémon in this group: Ditto.
