How does the Masuda Method work in this game?

#1thomasfreidPosted 12/28/2013 8:39:52 PM
I have a JPN marked Ditto that I use for breeding.

Is the JPN mark the only thing necessary for the method to work?
Just curious as I have bred over 6 boxes worth of Pokemon throughout my game and no shiny.

I'm guessing I'm just very unlucky compared to my Platinum game where I got about 8 shinies just from breeding for specific natures (I don't breed for IVs so it doesn't take too long).

Or am I missing something?

6 Boxes is nothing. I heard stories were people bred 15 boxes before getting a shiny.

Oh no I'm extremely patient.
In fact I never breed for specific shinies. Just hope that I get the odd one while team building.

The only reason I asked was because of the immense success I had with Platinum.

Thanks though. Good to know I haven't missed anything.

For masuda, both pokes have to be foreign.

no one really knows how exactly it works yet. i need to examine the breeding code like i did last gen. the assumption is that it's the same as last gen.
