I have tried and failed so many times hatching within my own pets which have proof, defy, and sprite in the pool but can never get them all in one pet. Is there a certain way to incrase the chance to get it and am I doing something wrong? Does the pet need to have just those talents unlocked then hatch to get it in new pet? And no one will hatch with me in the hatchery, people just stand around or twirl . It frustrates me because I can't even get a good pet. All I truly want is 2 defences but sprite i can live without but it would be nice to have. Please give me any tips on how you or someone you know has got a SPUD pet.
It is mostly luck. The child pet has higher chance to manifest talents that were manifested in its parents. Also, unless your pet has these talents unlocked / manifested, these talents might not get passed to the child. So, your best bet is to hatch with a pet that has manifested (or unlocked) all the talents you want.
The people in hatchery is most likely waiting for someone. Or, they are there to look for better pets (just like you). Your best option is to post a hatching request in [Pet Mixing Meet Up] section.
Not sure how many times is "so many times". Pet hatching is mostly luck. My latest pet project, 16 hatches later and I'm still no closer than when I started. One of my friend, 2 hatches and wola! Yep, life is not fair.
