Because there's a 12.85% chance of it being female. And releasing doesn't do anything harmful to your breeding

Why would releasing help you get shinies??

And Fennekin is, I think, around an 85% male species.
On 12/02/12 I said I wouldn't change this until something impossible happened. Now, Earthbound just got re-released in the US.

Why would it matter if you release any of them? Each individual egg has a set chance to be shiny. It doesn't increase if you breed more.

Fennekin has a 1/8 chance of being female, so you're going to get more males than females.
YOU WANT SOME FUNERAL TO GO WITH THAT CAKE?
shut up before i make you shut up

Releasing pokemon has no affect on shininess

and female starters are very rare. something like 12.5% chance

What?

And also, female Fennekin only has a 12,5% chance of happening, so you're obviously going to get mostly males.

I see so It's a less chance to get female fannekins..
so I just can release my 20 fanns and not to worry about the chance of having shiny?

Nope, nothing. The thing is, probability always defers. It doesn't mean I hatch 8192 eggs, I'm entitled to a shiny. That's where masuda method comes in, with 1 in 1365. Good luck, mine was around 900+ eggs.
