Hatched my very first shiny via this method today (actually my first shiny ever save the Gyarados everyone gets).

Shiny Torchic hatched on my White version, was my 750th egg exactly.

After trying to get a shiny Cacnea a couple more times, I gave up and restarted breeding Magnemites to get a shiny.

And I got it :D


Now I want more and more shinies :D

Hey, question here, I hope someone could answer?

I heard from somewhere that if you're the original trainer of any of the two pokemon your breeding for shines that the masuda method won't work. Like, for example I got a Japanese venipede off the gts and I want to breed it with an english ditto I caught in my game. Will this work?

Thank you^^

I have a lot of legit shinies but I'm really trying to get one through the Masuda Method.
I really want a shiny Venipede, and have over 100 eggs so far.

But damn Scolipede is just the coolest shiny.

As far as I know that's not true. The only rules for the Masuda Method are one of the Pokemon has to be from another country that speaks a different language or something like that. If you're the OT of one of them it shouldn't make a difference...lots of people have had luck to further stand for that fact.

So yes, you're good. It will work.

it has to be a different language so irish & american are classed as "english" for this

people often use japanese ones as it's very easy to tell it's foreign & not just nicknamed (due to the different letters/characters) but anything like german etc works too
so they just have to be a different language thanks siburke

I've only so far gotten a Shiny Squirtle with ~22 eggs, and that was on my luckiest.

I don't know how many Charmanders I've hatched and boxed/released so far on my Platinum; within 200 to 250 seems like a safe bet, though. Trying to get as many of the starters as shiny now.

Wow, some of you are really lucky!

This is the first time I'm using this method. I'm trying to get a shiny Sigilyph. I've hatched over 800 eggs now, but nothing yet.
I hope I'll get my shiny soon. ^_^

So since my question is more related to the masuda method i hope its ok that i ask here.....

So i have hatched 15 boxes of druddigon in a row plus about 200 before i started counting via depositing into boxes so if i left to go and train does it reset my odds persay or is it just every egg i get i have a 1/1600 (or whatever the # in gen 5 games is) chance of the shiny?

Thanks!
