NOTE: You can now use Shiny Egg Finder to do most of the grunt work for you listed in this post.
I am typing this from Ljubljana, Slovenia and the keyboard is different so I apologize for anz weirdness.
USING SHINY EGG FINDER:
1.) Open the Shiny Egg Finder tab. Itćs between the time finder and the parameters tab, or at least in that same area.ž
2.) Set the min frame to 70 and the max frame to whatever zzou are willing to chater to. I usuallz set it to around 200.
3.) Input as much of zour parents IVs as you know. If zyou know all of them, then RNG reporter will do the characteristic calculation for you, but I donćt know if itćs right 100 percent of the time, so buyer beware.
4.) Specify as much of nature and abilitz that zou wish.
5.) Hit generate. It assumes zou are saved in front of the daycare man, so it only considers frame 8 spreads. Itćll give zou useable frames.
This is the best fast summary I can give zou right now, as I donćt want to take up much more of the courtesz computerćs time!
Greetings from Ljubljana!
ONE STEP FURTHER: Flawless Shinies via the Genetic Method
DO NOT USE POWER ITEMS!!!
Shiny: Easiest way to breed shiny eggs, guaranteed!
When we breed for flawlessness AND shininess, we are fighting a losing battle against statistics. Thankfully, the best way of beating statistics over the head with a stick is the law of large numbers.
In other words by inverting the large number law we can see that by doing something with many outcomes an obscenely large number of times, we should
eventually achieve an "uncommon" result.
That's why we need the Genetic Method from above. Searching for a "flawless" spread is not likely to give us an easy time when finding a shiny frame without chattering 4000+ times, since we find very few seeds.
BUT, if we search for some permutation of X/X/X/31/31/31, we have magnitudes more seeds and therefore a much higher chance of finding what we're looking for.
- Everything you needed for the Genetic method above.
- Your TRAINER ID (TID) and SECRET ID (SID)
- I cannot help you find your SID. There are many ways you can find it. The easiest way is with an external device, Pokecheck, or IR-GTS. I don't have an external device, and neither Pokecheck nor IR-GTS work for me, so I had to resort to favors XD
Begin the process of searching for seeds as you did in the Genetic Method. We will be searching for X/X/X/31/31/31. Note that you can use any set of 3 IVs, but from now on the guide will assume you are using X/X/X/31/31/31, so alter your own steps accordingly. Now notice the "Shiny Info" on the right side of Time Finder. Input your TID and SID. Select "Shiny Only" and set the max shiny frame to 400 or so. Hit "Generate." You'll notice there's a lot more info when seeds pop up, now. It's mostly useless to you, as egg PIDs don't exactly match.
Examine your seeds for a suitable frame and acquire parents.
Start copy/pasting full seeds into "Breeding (BW)" on the main screen. Before you hit "Generate" make sure your TID and SID are in the main screen boxes, and hit "shiny only." It's quite often that the PIFs you find in time finder this way will have a reasonable (<400) frame. Check the nature, gender, ability, and inheritance stats. IN this case, we want to find one that inherits HP, Attack, and Defense from the parents and is reasonably low. (It's okay to use the everstone again).
NOTE: You may have to examine 100+ seeds to find this. It sounds tedious, but it's much better than chattering 7000 times, then realizing you overshot, and having to chatter 7000 times again. It doesn't take too long to copy/paste and hit generate. I can usually find a suitable frame by searching the first hundred returned seeds of a single month. It's all luck and it's much faster than finding a flawless frame with a low shiny PID frame.
Then, you just need to find/RNG parents as we did for the Genetic method.
Put in daycare and find your SSF.
There's nothing new here. Absolutely nothing! Just do it as you've done it before.
Advance with chatter and pick up your egg.
Chatter the required number of times (Target Frame # - SSF# +1) and pick up your egg. You'll probably want to verify your seed as mentioned before.
If you've done everything right, you should have a shiny egg with the desired traits! Hatch it and revel in your victory :)
