Trying to breed a shiny competitive Clefable, and got a shiny after 2 boxes with 31/31/31/x/31/31 IVs. I'm not complaining as I did get pretty lucky and I'm going to continue with this for a while longer.

I am curious, however, as to what are some of your stories for breeding competitive shinies? Any quick or long success stories?

Not worth it. Breed a normal 6iv or 5iv missing whatever it doesnt need and use powersave xD Not worth the time and frustration. Reason I say this. I was just breeding a modest larvitar and it was 31/31/31/x/31/31. IF I WAS BREEDING AN ADAMANT ONE I WOULD HAVE HAD THE MOST AMAZING SHINY EVER(TO ME). No, the game had to shaft me like always. Including my other shinies I have hatched. Skrelp, Modest (x/31/31/31/31/31). tyrunt, jolly, (x/31/31/31/31/31), chinchou modest (31/31/31/31/x/31) THEN a togepi modest with (31/31/31/31/31/x) <--- This one isn't so bad, but come on.

:D

Sadly, I don't trust anyone to Shinify my Pokémon.

Sure I end up with more than one 5IV, but...

Took awhile (maybe 100 eggs, so not a terribly long time), but I got a pair of 5IV Lucario and did some maths. Learned that I had a 1/5 shot of getting another 5IV from them, so I sent them over to my copy of X (it's in French) and got a female 5IV there. Sent it back to Y and started breeding with the Shiny Charm. 32 eggs in, shiny 5IV with a neutral nature. No shinies since, but I haven't been going at it much. Haven't even hatched 200 with that pair yet.
