Ditto can be used as a replacement for a Parent Pokemon for all Pokemon that can produce eggs. If Ditto has a high IV, this makes the breeding process easier since you'll just need to breed the one Parent Pokemon.

Tera Type Selected By Item

Pokemon that appear in Raid have Tera Types that could be different from their own types, but this is randomly selected from the 18 types so it's difficult to get the one you want. Use the Tera Shard you can get from Raids to change its Tera Type.

High IV Ditto Can Be Caught

Ditto with a High IV can be caught from 6 star Raids, so you can catch a Ditto with a confirmed IV5 or higher. It is very useful when it comes to breeding, since it can breed high IV Pokemon too.

Legendary Pokemon can only be caught once, and you will be unable to breed them. If you want to catch a good Legendary Pokemon, you will need to do so when you catch them. When catching Legendary Pokemon, make sure to turn off Autosave and save before attempting to catch it. Nature cannot also be carefully selected.

Legendary Pokemon Koraidon & Miraidon Cannot Be Selected

Legendary Pokemon Koraidon & Miraidon's stats are fixed and cannot be selected. If you want to change their IV, you have to use items.

Also Applies To Paradox Pokemon

Also Applies To Paradox Pokemon

Paradox Pokemon, which can caught after clearing the game, are also unable to produce eggs. However, unlike Legendary Pokemon, there is no guarantee of their IVs and are completely random. That status should be changed through items.

Selecting Shiny Pokemon

Selecting Shiny Pokemon

Shiny Pokemon can be acquired with a very low probability from egg breeding or from the wild. To increase the chance of finding one, it is recommended to increase the probability of them showing up by breeding them or through Mass Outbreaks.
