So long as you continue hatching with that same pet that talent will always be in it's gene line.

So my answer is mostly: keep hatching and eventually you may get it out.

If you want a BETTER chance at getting it out, use one of your new pets to hatch (before it give the fail gene.)

Try to hatch with pets that have all things you want, but don't have the bad talent. Sometimes it takes a few tries but you can get it right.

If you have a pet you know does not have selfish talents, use that. If you want to keep your storm elf with storm talents, then you might think about hatching with another storm pet.

Don't hatch the same storm elf with another you have with the same talents. They will mirror each other and you will never get the selfish talent(s) out of the gene pool. Try to find someone that has an excellent storm pet, or someone who has an excellent universal pet (with balance blade as it's pet card + all universal talents).

A universal pet is one who does not have any school-specific talents. I'll use one of my pets as an example:

Damp Demon (comes with Balance Blade card)
MC Dragonblade
MC Tower Shield
Sharp Shot
MC Balance Blade
Pain Giver (+6 damage)
Proof (10)
Sprite
Defy (5)
Fairy
Unicorn

On this pet, I know what every possible talent is. This is also an all 250 stat pet. The ones highlighted in bold are the ones that manifested. MC=may cast. I use this pet (and many more like it) to hatch with other not-so-great pets so I can get the talent pool I want.

It does take time and patience, but with a bit of hatching, pretty soon you'll get the talents you don't want out, and the cool ones you want in.

Good luck!

It's a possibility.

It's less likely to happen since it hasn't manifested in either pet but yes it is still a possibility.
