Is there anything im doing wrong? Masuda Method

#1TacoOfTheOperaPosted 10/23/2013 5:32:11 AM
I've been breeding a Male Japanese Froakie with an American female Froakie. Have about 400 eggs that ive gone througha nd still nothing. Am i having just really bad luck or is there something more im suppose to be doing?

Well considering the odds of getting one even with the Masuda method are not 1/400, it's 1/1365, I'd say you're still in the realm of statistical possibiliy. It would actually take a **** ton of eggs to be in the realm of statistical impossibility actually <_<.

Dude, it's about 1/1200 chances of getting a shiny by doing the Masuda method. It's not easy and it requires a bit of chance/luck.

Every egg you hatch has a 1/1200 chance. Hatching 400 eggs doesn't mean you will get a shiny in the next 800 egg, that's not how it works.

You could hatch 3000 eggs and not get a shiny, I can't believe how many people have such a poor understanding of odds

You must be confident and patient that you will get your shiny if you arnt you will have a negative influence on the random number generator and make the likely hood of getting one so slim.

Of course now that you are ware of this your chances change in one direction or the other as well, just breed with an empty mind if you want to actually experience the RNG working as intended.
