    What determines if you get a Splash or a Dark from a BLRW egg? I'm new to all of this so please don't laugh if this is a silly question... Ok, go ahead and laugh:)

    BLRW follows the B/B/S rule.

    Blue X Blue = 50% blue, 25% black, 25% splash

    Blue X Splash = 50% blue, 50% splash

    Splash X Splash = 100% splash

    Black X Black = 100% black

    Black X Splash = 100% blue

    You shouldn't breed splash to splash for more than a generation or two, or it will turn it white.

    Quote:actually it will lighten your coloring but turn the red to white, it will turn the blue to white.
