I know the usual post is always about how to make eggs hatch faster with stuff like Magma Armor and Flame Body, but I want to know how to recieve EGGS faster.

What's it linked to?

It can't be the number of steps because (Parents and the pokemon remaining constant) I have biked for maybe 100 or so steps for an egg and other times it would take over 1000 steps for the guy to have an egg.

Bulbapedia talks about different relationships having a breeding rate which gives a percentage chance for the man to have an egg. I don't understand how this works either.

Take this for example:

The chance of getting an Egg is 49.5% (has a value of 50). The old man in the Day Care will say: "The two seem to get along."

Does that mean every time I see the guy on my screen I have a 50% chance? Do I have to leave the route and come back to reset the chance? Is it a matter of time for the chance to reset?
