For those who shiny hunt with Masuda method, we all know how random the amount of eggs it can take for shiny pokemon to hatch. I am In the middle of hunting a shiny Joltik, with Masuda Method and Shiny Charm (assuming it works), I am at 885 eggs as of writing, although my longest hunt was for a shiny Roggenrola at 1344. What are your longest and shortest masuda method hunts?

My shortest intentional masuda method hunt was at 182 eggs for a shiny Vanillite, although my shortest shiny hunt involving Masuda method was via a random Goomy which I got in only 2 eggs whilst I was IV breeding it.

My longest was over 1000 eggs (didn't keep track because it's pointless) for a shiny Bulbasaur.

Shortest was a shiny Chimchar, which was probably like 10 eggs, but I wasn't even trying to breed a shiny. It just happened.

And I'm never, ever, ever doing another (intentional) MM breed again. F*** that s***.
