Shiny Pokemon Question "releasing Pokemon count?"

#1zgfqsPosted 10/18/2013 8:04:46 AM
I've been trying to Get Shiny Fannekin and already have 20+..
question is does it count if i just release some of them?

and why almost my hatching eggs are Male??
#2RawrchuPosted 10/18/2013 8:05:54 AM
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?

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.
