    anyone with a 6iv non-english ditto want to help get a shiny shieldon? In my last medusa breeds i have always gotton my shiny pokemon within the 300-450 egg range. it's been well over 1200 and still nothing... i really want a shiny shieldon and i have a parent for anyone who can help me. I can clone pokemon using my roomates 3DS so you'll also be able to keep the shiny yourself. anyone interested?

    I've been breeding swirlix and have unfortunately lost count again. :(

    I'm using a shiny six IV japanese ditto, and have gotten four shinies in about seven hundred eggs. I wasn't keeping track very well the entire time, but that is about how many I've hatched.

    Is it okay to exchange friend codes here? I'm still new to this website and don't really know what the rules are.

    I put about 4 hours in yesterday and this morning (I have two and a half boxes full of Frisk Pumpkaboos but I threw away pretty much all the Pickups. If we agree on the 80/20 ratio for getting the female's ability, that would mean I bred about 100) and finally got my Shiny Pumpkaboo. I have both Shiny Charm and was using the Masuda method. Trying to go for a trick room setter and ended up with one with max Attack and Defense, and min Speed (with a Brave nature). Unfortunately had pickup as its ability, but Frisk is only a wee bit more useful...(mostly to determine the Megas in my opinion)

    Of course, that's my only shiny that I ever hatched, but I also believe it was the first hatching session I did after getting the Shiny Charm

    I was wondering if you were updating your eggs on another post or if you were just not reporting these batches? Just so I know for the sheet cause I haven't seen egg totals so I haven't updated it.

    Hey guys, any of you have a perfect Hidden Power Fire and/or Hidden Power Ice Ditto. It's because I want to start trying to breed a Timid 5 IVs Shiny Froakie with Protean and Hidden Power Fire, and a Modest 5 IVs Shiny Rotom, it might take the rest of my natural life xD.

    I've never done it, but some people I know have bred thos mons easier with Dittos that have the perfect Hidden Power IV Spread, and when they get a mon with that perfect Hidden Power IV Spread, they switch the first parent, so the chances are higher. To hatch it the way I want though, my take incountable hours of time xD. About the Dittos, they are all hacks I think.

    Yeap, it cannot learn anything else but Transform, but I think the IV checker can tell you what kind of HP it has.

    Hey, if you do get ahold of that HP Ice Ditto and you end up making your Froakie, can I hold onto it for a sec? I need it to breed HP Ice onto an Electrike :)

    Edit: Or, you know, anyone who sees this post that has an HP Ice Ditto, I'd thoroughly appreciate it.

    Sorry, I don't want to make anyone mad. I'm sure you'll hatch some more, too. It's all luck, please don't be mad at me. :(
    And I wasn't keeping count the whole time while hatching so maybe I actually hatched more than that.
    And I went through the trouble of getting the shiny charm in Black 2 and hatched a lot of growlithe eggs for months. I got no shiny at all from that game, and none from Black, and none from Soulsilver besides the red Gyarados. I feel that these shinies I got in X are kind of making up for that.

    Guys, another update with ANOTHER SHINY! I've just got a Shiny Timid Eevee, but the problem is that it doesn't have Special Attack. Well, I don't know if I should use my last batch to hatch more Eevees and see if I get a better one...

    Total: 2850
    Shinies: 3

    I just want to share this quickly. Just happened and I want to give it to you freshly.

    In my desperation I thought that it would be a better idea if I keep on filling boxes, like 5-10 per day. It could help a little about odds continuing changing without even hatching, so I've filled the rest of my boxes until I had the goal of 1000 to hatch. I will not update until I got the whole number hatched over, but I just hatched, lastly, my shiny Druddigon at the 881st egg.
    Female, Brave nature, Sheer Force, 4 Egg Moves (Poison Tail, Iron Tail, Sucker Punch and Fire Fang) with 31/31/31/31/31/?? I'm a little bit disappointed cause I do really wanted it so bad to have 0 IV's on the speed, I just hope that later when I level it, it's speed is less than 10 IV's. Yes, I was thinking in using it for trick room teams. Anyhow, I'm close to the 900 and certainly, the 1000 egg will be hatched soon, I presume yesterday. I hope to find another green dragon over there.

    I'm on 2700 hatched, 1 shiny still.

    I've switched parents to an ENG Sigalyph and JAP Ditto now, hoping for better luck!

    Ever since I switched parents, my luck has been awesome. The first, Froakie, came in 150 eggs. But they are usually coming within 300 range.
