Going for Shiny Zorua via Masuda Method

#1Neko_ShigiPosted 3/27/2011 1:19:33 AM
Already have a full box full of Male Zorua w/ Dark Pulse and Extrasensory. This isn't necessarily a trade topic, just stating this. Hopefully get that shiny.

I've actually started this myself a few days ago and managed to hatch a Shiny Zorua after hatching 30+ Eggs from a batch of over 70 or so.

Google is hard, huh?

The Masuda Method is breeding two pokemon from different regions- for example, a Japanese Ditto and a US Zorua- to increase your chances of shiny babies. The chances of having a shiny Pokémon in the egg will increase to 1/2048 instead of the usual 1/8192.

^ And that's a pretty sizeable difference. Then again, RNG can still screw you over.

Oh, that. I didn't know this was called the Masuda Method. Still wish I had a Japanese Ditto though.

Actually the odds are 1/1365.3 in 5th Gen with the Masuda Method now..

its not really that much, its still less then 1% of chance to get a shiny.

6 boxes of zorua and still no shiny... but i'm not breeding for shiny to begin with, i just throw in a jpn ditto and hope to get lucky.
