How many eggs does it take to get to the shiny pokemon?

I got a Sneasel in B2 after about 20 eggs.

I'm currently taking a break from my Charmander breeding by offloading ~250 Modest Charmanders onto WT.


I'm considering filling up a couple of boxes with these Naughty Pumpkaboos. I wonder if anyone would be happy to get a free lvl 1 Gourgeist with that nature? lol

According to one poster, hatching 1000 eggs will only result in a 50% chance of getting a shiny.


The probability doesn't work like that -.-

AFAIK, every hatch is an independent event and therefore each hatch has the same chances as any other using the Masuda method.

Got interested in Masuda Method, thought I'll give a try with Fennekin, was expecting a while, from the stories.

To my surprise, 3rd egg turns out to be shiny.

...started with Ralts...and now, I understand the stories.

On my 307th egg...aiming for Modest Ralts.

FML.

Every hatch IS an independent event, but from the perspective of going from 0 to X amount of hatches, there is a given probability of having obtained at least 1 shiny. And for hatching 1000 eggs using masuda method, it should be a 45% chance of obtaining at least 1 shiny, from 0 hatches to 1000.

I was both very lucky and cursed with my Froakie. Roughly 60 for my first one, and 15 more after that for my second.

Too bad they are both torrent and not Protean...Was not too happy. At least I have something I can trade for a awesome poke.

Before I even bothered started hatching for a shiny, I bread for a specific nature. i want my shiny Gourgeist to be Naughty, so I continued breeding until I got a female with said nature. Now, she is in the daycare, holding an everstone. Every baby I hatch has a Naughty nature.

I also learned that since mama is a super-sized Pumpkaboo, all her babies are too!
