From what I hear from friends who have the game, Masuda's method (breeding two Pokemon from different regions in order to improve the odds of getting a shiny Pokemon) seems to be hatching shinies more often (in the hundreds of hatches rather than thousands) in X and Y than previous games. I read that the odds went up from gen 4 to gen 5 and I suspect they went up again with gen 6, I just don't know by how much. Is there anyone here who has hatched a shiny using Masuda's Method? Can you you say around how many hatches it took? Does anyone have more information on the probability for hatching a shiny in gen 6 using Masuda's method?

I've hatched about 300 eggs, with no luck. To be fair though, I haven't been specifically breeding for a shiny, just been using a Japanese Ditto while breeding Pokemon to EV train. if I get a shiny, awesome. If not, I still have my Pokemon ready to battle. I'm holding firmly on to my sanity, rather than trying for a shiny.

My first shiny was a pancham and i got it on my 38th egg. My 2nd shiny was a vulpix and i got it on my 33rd egg. Then i went for a shiny skrelp and hatched 280 eggs an no shiny and found out i wasted my time hatching all those eggs now that i know of the fish chaining, i've had a total of 6 shiny skrelps. I am now going for a shiny honedge. have like 2-3 boxes full and no luck yet.
