Theory on masuda method

#1CubeTheLwNoobPosted 1/18/2014 6:53:59 AM
I dont know if this has already been said or not so here it goes. Ive seen people saying that they get their eggs in 10 , 50 , 100 ,200 eggs. Ive also seen people say its been thousands and no shiny. What i think is that maybe the ditto is a fake JPN (or any other foreign) that is from an english game but language was set to jpn cause they thought it would work. If this is true then itd be true that masuda only works on region locked games and not language. Ive spent about 16hrs in total and counting on trying to get a shiny froakie and no luck. Anyone else think so?

There's your answer. I was breeding with a JPN ditto I received from an actual Japanese person on Wonder Trade. Bred Thousands of Pokemon with no luck. Switched Ditto to one from my game and put an ENG Finneon in with it, first egg was shiny. It's all about luck...

You're complaining after only 16 hours? I don't think you have the determination or patience to hatch a shiny froakie.

I dont know about you but 16hrs spent riding around lumoise tower hatching eggs (13hrs straight, 3hours today) is alot when i could be doing rl stuff but I chose to do it and im not going to stop untill I get it. My main question was that if a JPN tag poke from an english game counts towards masuda as it seems to be a weeaboo ditto lol. It took 54 eggs for my shiny growlithe but that was definitely a jpn growlithe.

No. People who aren't patient enough always look to invent theories on why they can't get their shiny. It's random. Be patient.

To be honest, I've thought about this too. I bred nearly 3000 Ralts with no results, and that was with a JPN Gastly I got off wonder trade. But then I got an Italian friend to breed 5IVs as masuda materials and I have been getting shinies left and right, at most taking around 400 eggs. I have obtained 8 shinies in the span of nearly 3 weeks, whereas for the Ralts I think I kept trying for a month before I gave up.

But yeah, I think it all just comes down to luck... :-/
