With 80% chance of an egg per cycle (Oval charm and either 2 pokemon of the same species and and same OT, or Oval charm and 2 pokemon of different species and different OT), it takes an average of 320 steps to generate an egg. The bike travels at 14.5 steps per second, and assuming no steps are wasted, it takes an average of 22 seconds to generate an egg.

The time from soft resetting to regaining control of your character is about 15 seconds (can vary with lag).

The time to enter the O power menu, activate Hatching Power, and regain control of your character is about 7 seconds.

The time to talk to the daycareman (when standing right next to him) and collect an egg is about 7 seconds.

The time to press b on "oh", watch the egg hatch animation, and regain control of your character is about 23 seconds.

The time to fly to Kiloude and have the Judge rate your pokemon is about 33 seconds.

The time to hatch an egg using Flame Body and Hatch O Power lv3, assuming no steps are wasted, is 27 seconds for Magikarp, 49 seconds for Togepi, 71 seconds for Skitty, and 93 seconds for Kangaskhan or Magnemite.

**Altogether, the time to complete an egg and determine inheritance using the Kiloude Judge is:**

**Magikarp (1:1) 134 seconds**

**Togepi (7:1) 156 seconds**

**Skitty (3:1) 178 seconds**

**Kangaskhan/Magnemite (0:1) 200 seconds.**

**These are average times assuming ideal conditions.**

On average, it takes **40 seconds longer** per egg to check inheritance using the Battle Institute than the Judge in Kiloude with a perfect 182IV and a perfect 0IV (or any other interlocking combination). Time saved per egg using the Kiloude Judge rather than the Battle Institute is:

**Magikarp (1:1) 30%**

**Togepi (7:1) 26%**

**Skitty (3:1) 22%**

**Kangaskhan/Magnemite (0:1) 20%**

Assuming the ideal situation that you are able to obtain/borrow 6IV parents to create your perfect 6IV testers, the average time to breed a perfect mother and father with 182IV and 0IV is:

Magikarp (1:1) 134 sec/egg * ( 32 eggs for first parent + (32 / 0.5 chance of being opposite gender) eggs for second parent) = ~12900 seconds (3.6 hours)

Togepi (7:1) 156 sec/egg *

{

7/8 chance of male as first parent * (32 eggs for first parent + (32 / 0.125 chance of being opposite gender) eggs for second parent)

+

1/8 chance of female as first parent * (32 eggs for first parent + (32 / 0.875 chance of being opposite gender) eggs for second parent)

}

= ~40600 seconds (11.3 hours)

Skitty (3:1) 178 sec/egg *

{

1/4 chance of male as first parent * (32 eggs for first parent + (32 / .75 chance of being opposite gender) eggs for second parent)

+

3/4 chance of female as first parent * (32 eggs for first parent + (32 / 0.25 chance of being opposite gender) eggs for second parent)

}

= ~24700 seconds (6.9 hours)

Kangaskhan/Magnemite (0:1) 200 sec/egg * ( 32 eggs for first parent + 32 eggs for second parent) = 12800 seconds (3.6 hours)

Note that the above is assuming that you breed a mother and a father of that specific species. Taking into account the fact that you can use different species in the same egg group, the time may be shorter as you only need to breed a perfect mother.

**Number of eggs needed to hatch to justify the time spent breeding perfect parents:**

**Magikarp (1:1) 323 (12 hours of hatching)**

**Togepi (7:1) 1015 (44 hours of hatching)**

**Skitty (3:1) 618 (31 hours of hatching)**

**Kangaskhan/Magnemite (0:1) 320 (18 hours of hatching)**

323 eggs looks to be managable at first, but remember that the whole point of this RNG method is to hatch as few eggs as possible to get to your desired result.

What I'm trying to get at with all this is that it is **probably not worth your time** to breed perfect parents in order to check inheritance using the Kiloude Judge instead of the Battle Institute.
