Question from death725

If you breed a shiny pokemon, will it be more likely to be shiny than a regular pokemon breeding?

I want a lot of shiny pokemon.

Stepswordsman answered:

No, pokemon being a shiny does not influence chances of it's offspring being a shiny in any way.

The only way to raise chance of hatching a shiny pokemon is to breed a pokemon traded from a different region. Shiny chance increases four times, but it's still very low.

Contrary to what Stepswordsman said, yes, breeding shiny pokemon increases the chances of getting shiny pokemon from an egg. If one of the parent pokemon is shiny, the chances of a shiny baby go up somewhat. If both parent pokemon are shiny, there is a good chance the egg will contain a shiny pokemon, but there is a chance the pokemon may not be shiny. Also, you can try to do as StepSwordsman said: if you take two pokemon that are from different regions (say, your vulpix and a japanese vulpix), the chances of a shiny egg increase from 1/8192 to 1/2048 (which is four times the chance of finding a shiny pokemon in the wild), but I'm not quite sure the odds if one/both of the foreign pokemon are shiny. On a lesser note, if you plan to try to get a shiny pokemon by this method (the Masuda Method) in Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heartgold, or Soulsilver so you can get a shiny pokemon in Black/White, do the method in Black/White instead: the odds would be 1/1366.

Yes

If 1 Pokemon is shiny, the chances go up a bit, if both are shiny, they go up a lot.

Also. Getting The Shiny Charm in generation's 5 and 6 also increases your chances and using a foreign also increases your chances.
