Re: Simple Questions / Simple Answers (XY Edition)
I was apologizing for diffusing your hopes for an easy shiny. You probably will have to hatch a lot of eggs in the near future for your goals. If you want an idea of your odds then put this in your url Pokemon X/Y - IV Breeding Probability Calculator. I'm not sure how the shiny charm effects this if it does at all or if you even have it. Regardless it's a good tool to tell you your odds and to help plan breeding methods.? I don't know why you're apologizing?? If I used a Braviary and a Ditto instead of a couple of Magikarps, then it's obviously going to guarantee an egg that will always hatch as male, right? Then if I replace the parents when the next egg is a shiny, I'd be able to get a guaranteed male shiny, right? I'm planning to get my shiny male Ralts that way instead of just blindly hatching eggs, hoping for the 50% chance of getting a male one.
Or will it not work that way?
This is pretty spot on here. The value doesn't change but it has different effects on the result depending on the parent species.Not quite. Basically, using the above scenario, say you got a egg with a gender value of 75. For Braviary, since it's only male, that would result in the hatched Rufflet being male. But a Ralts hatching with that same value would end up female. With different numbers (because powers of two), that's essentially how the game works.
