I totally hear ya man - was doing it with Eevee @.@ 3 boxes and nothing. I think I broke the chain somewhere... I forget what breaks the chain with masuda method.

Anything you want for a Chikarita? How about a high IV Eevee? Only IV's I can't get a 31 in is HP >.o (seriously like 6 Eevee's in a row hatch with all 31's except HP)

if you have any dusk stones you don't want? Make a Pokemon hold one and I'll trade for that. Otherwise just take it, it's free. I eventually got a shiny tho. Traded for it XD

As far as I know, there's no "chain" to the masuda method. It just generates the shiny number multiple times rather than once, so rather than having a 1/8192 chance you have a 1/1365 chance. Still rather low, though. I've bred 3 without trying to so far, 2 of which were without the masuda method.

Just keep at it. If you complete the pokedex you get a shiny charm, which further increases your chances of getting shiny pokemon via any method.

Ok thanks. I thought I saw something about a chain that can be broken, but maybe I misread something (if I find it again I'll post it int he guild). How many boxes did you fill before getting shinies with the non masuda method?

Hard to say, as I haven't actually been trying to breed shiny pokemon, but rather been IV breeding. I have filled up boxes and boxes, but I usually wonder trade them away (and release all of the starter area pokemon that I get in return) so that they don't build up. If I had to put a number on the amount of pokemon that I bred before getting a shiny without using a foreign 'mon.... 400-500? Again, that's counting every pokemon that I bred in this game up until that point.

When breeding a vulpix for someone else using my own ninetails and a japanese father, I got a shiny in that batch of 5 eggs. It doesn't have the hidden ability, which saddens me, but Shiny Ninetails is majestic as hell, so you better believe that I trained that one. Flash Fire is still good, right? Right?

Oh, and the chain thing only applies to the fishing method and the radar method.

It hates me as well. I got lucky once and hatched a shiny Charmander.

I've been hatching Cottonee eggs for like a month.. nothing yet.

I was trying for Marills before that and gave up and began breeding Gastly.

8 eggs in I get one with 5 IVs burning_eyes
