Has anyone ever been able to figure out the EXACT odds of a shiny via Masuda?

2,000 eggs and no Shiny Charmander yet. I'm still at it. College has kept me busy and it's been 4 months of trying here and there.

I don't have the shiny charm yet, but I've heard from many sources that there's apparently a translation issue in the Shiny Charm description, unlike Gen 5. So we don't know if the Shiny Charm actually helps WITH the Masuda method, correct?

I'm just curious what the odds are of Masuda alone giving me a shiny.

Though, I, too, don't know the exact odds, I can tell you from experience of MM, I have gotten about 1k eggs without the Shiny Charm and didn't get a Shiny Poke, but after completing the Pokedex, I was able to obtain the Shiny Charm and continued breeding about 250+ or so eggs, I finally got a Shiny, shiny female Pichu. I wanted a male so about an additional 30+ eggs the egg hatched into a shiny male Pichu.

You can say by having Shiny Charm it works, you can also say the RNGesus answered my prayers and gave me luck to get the shiny. This is my experience and just want to shed some light to your curiosity of the Shiny Charm.
