How to Use the Destiny Knot in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl
The Destiny Knot has two major effects in Pokemon BDSP. To use it, give it to a desired Pokemon to hold. Any Pokemon that attacks it in battle has a chance to become infatuated with it. If it gets infatuated, it will then have a 50% chance to not attack your Pokemon. The other use of the Destiny Knot has to do with breeding Pokemon. If a Pokemon that is holding this has offspring, then the child will inherit five of the twelve IVs from its parents. This way, you can make some very powerful offspring.
