    785 eggs hatched no shiny.

    After egg 728, I switched from German Ditto to one I caught in my Friend Safari.

    I just hatched 900 Froakies with a Japanese Female Froakie and my own Ditto. None of them were shiny. I have to wonder if I'm doing something wrong :l
    I'm going to try switching my Ditto for a Male English Froakie, but I doubt I'll get anything.

    You're not doing anything wrong. It's all by chance. Though we've recently noticed if you switch out your parents every so often it helps. :) good luck

    Well too bad its a male 4iv torrent froakie and that's pretty bad if you really think about it considering a 6iv and a 5iv breeding. I do have to say it took 125 eggs only :D but i guess i have to go on .

    Guys, I just finished my pledge with a not so nice, but at the same time, good surprise: my fourth shiny! I was breeding a 6IV Unburden Treecko (no egg moves) with my 6IV Spanish Ditto and I got a 5IV (missing SpAttack ONCE MORE) Overgrow Treecko. Well, meh. But at the same time, YAY SHINY!

    Since I finished my pledge, I think I'll start the second one! 3000 more, what do you guys think?

    Eggs Hatched: 3000
    Shinies: 4

    I've just hit the 3000 mark, still 1 shiny...

    I don't suppose anyone has a non ENG Sigalyph or Ditto they would be willing to trade? Not really bothered about IV's, just need more options for parents

    Updated my post. I was wondering guys, I've been collecting the eggs and hatching them as I get them, but I don't do it contiously cause of college, maybe I should try like many of you and just get all the eggs I'm going to hatch and then start hatching each box???

    Im not sure really. I think it may have to do with my iv breeding. Since I iv breed along with shiny breed I tend to switch parents alot when I get a higher iv female I like

    Question: is it the language setting of the game (set at the very beginning) that determines the language tag of a pokemon? or is it the location set on the 3ds that determines the language tag? I ask because I know 3DS's are region locked meaning you can only play cirtain Cartridges. And someone who lives in Switzerland Told me that they get American games and play in other languages.

    I've been using a JAP pokemon for my medusa breeds and the last 5 times my shinies always appeared around the 300-450 egg range. Now I'm using a GER pokemon for the first time and it hass been over 2000 eggs with no shiny. But the person who gave me the parent is from Germany. So if they are Just using English games in German language, then will the parent sill produce the medusa odds?

    Yep it's there, but if that tag only appears because the game setting is in German, then it might not have been a medusa eligible

    As far as I know, as long as the tag is there it works for MM

    as far as i know the tag is the game version, when you start the game for the first time you choose your language and can not change it ever again! "mysterious music plays" so i guess thats where you set your game version and put the pokemon on the matsuda train. whould be senseless if they forbid you to change your game language just because the can.

    This is the part of breeding with egg moves that I don't like. Have to find a pokemon that knows the move you want then make sure it's in the same egg group. With my luck it never is lol so when it's not and it's the only one you have then you have to find a poke that can know it and is in the same egg group then level it up. I'm going from level 1 to 49 right now :( on level 34. Takes forever without the audino ladies in the battle chateau

    Question about changing parents. Does it matter which parent is changed or can it be another local/your own Pokemon?
