here's the link:
near the bottom, it gives an example. a parent with genes f5f8 fathers (since it must be male) an egg with stats 15ab. this works correctly with the formula at the site, but i think the formula for the special gene is wrong.
i've discovered all hatchlings have the VERY SAME special as the parent they get their stats from, but the "8" bit has about a 50% chance of being flipped. in other words, the f5f8 example meowth346 used could not beget an egg with 15ab. the egg would have to be 15a8 or 15a0. i come to this conclusion after 72 eggs from various species (i've kept track of genes of every egg since then).
if anyone else has any data on this, which theory does your data support? or if anyone might be willing to do some testing of their own?
as a side note: if this is correct, breeding a mother/ditto with ?f?7 or ?f?f genes has a 1 in 512 chance of getting you a max stat egg. a mother with any other genes would not get a max stat egg.
