Hi! Thougt I should giva an update. I have now hatched 5220 eggs and gotten 10 shinies. Im very happy with those odds!
Well it's been months since my last update, I've barely had any time to masuda method since summer ended, but I decided to really go for that shiny tyrunt over the Christmas break.Well I've finally got the shiny charm in my Y version by making a Living dex, so i've been masuda breeding for a shiny electrike while I finish my first batch
of Tyrunt in X.
Batch 24: 0/300 German Electrike X English Electrike
Batch 25: *in progress* Spanish Tyrunt X English Tyrunt
Total eggs hatched: 2635
Thanks man, last night was a lucky night! Shiny Charmander (bad nature but good IVs overall, Dragondance all the way for the speed lack ) and a bunch of eggs later, shiny Treecko (good IVs Special attack missing is not a problem) both male.Keep up the hope Ogard, i also got my shiny after 1930 eggs, hoping to get some better stats while i'm breeding some more ^_^
Oh wow 1900 should really hurt :(. Just curious what shiny were u hunting first? Tomorrow night I travel 7.5 hours by plane so plenty of time to Masuda breed :DLavazard those pokemon should be good indeed for masuda breeding. To bad you haven't hatched a shiny yet. My first took over 1900 so don't give up the hope yet, sometimes it can just take some time to hatch one. :)
I understand your reason for closing the thread, and I actually agree as well. We have hatched enough eggs to conclude the shiny rate with charm and MM is 1/512 or something like that, so practically this thread became a "bragging" thread about how quickly someone got a shiny. Maybe we should make a new thread, about people their shinies and how they got them. It would be a lot better than "brag" on a thread that isn't about bragging, but about the shiny rate.All right, time to do something about this thread.
It seems to be a magnet to new people for some reason. People with one, two or ten posts (rarely more than a hundred) who keep pleading eggs, reporting hatching numbers, or bragging about shinies. I don't know why this is, but after observing the phenomenon for a while, I've decided to have a second look at this thread.
Thing is, the thread is effectively dead. Or at least dormant. Examining the spreadsheet in the OP, it seems like it hasn't been updated in a year and a half. Wichu, who posted the thread, hasn't been active since August 2015. Pleading more numbers is useless now, since they apparently aren't read by anyone, never mind put into the spreadsheet. If nothing useful is said here, we might as well put the thread down.
I'm going to let it stay open for now, but if it keeps being Shortpost Central of OI, with only micro-messages by people reporting their Shiny hatchlings, I'm going to lock it. There are probably Pokémon forums out there with dedicated "tell us about your Shinies" threads, but Smogon is not the place for it.
So, no more "I got a Shiny Whatever after hatcing X eggs" posts, please. The more posts like this I see, the greater the chance I'll lock the thread. If people can convince me it needs to stay open, of course we will keep it open, but for now the threads lives on the edge. Or lies there dead, it kinda depends on whether the OP is planning to come back or not.
