Shiny Charm and Masuda Method

Breeding SPA Talonflame and ENG Fletchling to avoid rumors of Ditto/non-pentagon parents affecting results.
Egg count: 390 (doing batches of 30 because of standard box size)
Shinies: 0

Can't edit the spreadsheet so I'll just do it via this post.

EDIT: I'm retarded, boxes are 30 lol.

Hey guys,

I'd like to contribute to this, and just got the shiny charm last night.

I'll put up a mild goal of 1,000 eggs hatched. I'm 105 in now with the shiny charm and a Japanese Ditto with an American, pentagon'd Fletchling.

I'll let you guys know any/all results as they arrive.
 
HI all. I decided to contribute. I have the shiny charm,
Breeding 6 IV Korean Ditto with 5 IV Female Bulbasaur (ITA).
300 eggs = no shiny
I switched the Korean Ditto with a Japanese Ditto.
Another batch of 300 eggs = no shiny
Total: 600 (for now)
I'll keep trying. Can you add this on chart?
 
I just completed my dex and was hoping to maybe volunteer? I'll go with the 100 batch run for now, just to see what I can do~!

My first breeding session will be

English Mareep+Japanese Ditto
Let's see how it goes! My current counter due to running while posting it is

First batch completed~!
Eggs Hatched: 100 Shinies: 0, but oddly I did get four 6IV mareep babies.

Batch 2 will be much of the same~

Hey guys, here's my try :

Korean Ditto + French Amaura :

Eggs Hatched : 22
Shinies : 1

Japanese Ditto + French Eevee :

Eggs Hatched : 896
Shinies : 1

Total :

Eggs Hatched : 918
Shinies : 2

I had done a lot of Masuda without shiny charm and my odds feel definitely better with!
 
Ok so I contributed 810 to the other thread, but I finally unlocked shiny charm so Im going to start pledging eggs here. My intitial goal will be 3000 eggs, bred in batches of 300 eggs then hatched. I will use Kalos parents ONLY (pentagon). I usually hatch my eggs in random order, so I will state the box they are from but not the exact egg number. I will update shinies as they hatch here, and then enter my results in the doc once each batch is completed.

Hi guys,
I'd like to contribute my findings on here. I got the shiny charm a few weeks back and have been breeding poochyena's. I'm doing batches of 330 due to having 11 boxes empty. Batch 1 and 2 both had 2 mightyena's. Male was german.

Batch 1 - no shiny
Batch 2 - 2 shinies. This 1 had an extra egg and the extra egg just so happened to be shiny :)
Batch 3 - 1 shiny -Poochyena
Batch 4 - 3 shinies -Houndour
Batch 5 - 2 shinies -Froakie
Batch 6 - no shiny -Absol

Batch 7 - WIP - Treecko going to switch to batches of 300 cause I'm down a box

1,981 eggs hatched.
8 shiny
Eggs #381, #661, #875, #1081, #1242, #1262, #1401 and #1561 were shiny

Update to post #720

Batch 1 (1-100): One shiny
Batch 2 (101-200): No shinies
Batch 3 (201-300): No shinies
Batch 4 (301-400): No shinies

Updated spreadsheet and working on batch 5. Changing to a German Honedge and a French Honedge.
 
Are you guys needing more data? Because I'm willing to hatch 700 eggs. I got a female Mandibuzz (ENG) and a male Talonflame (JAP) and I'm curious to see how many shinies I may get, assuming I'll get a shiny at all. Since I both work and study my rhythm is quite slow, but I pledge to report data in seven batches of 100.

[EDIT]
Batch 1 [0 - 100] - None

I got the shiny charm the other day, and I was a bit disappointed to find it might not work with MM. I'm really curious to see what the results are, so I'll try and do my bit.
I'm breeding a (I think korean) ditto with a Musharna mummy, because I just discovered how short munna's egg cylces are. Doing them in batches of 90 before hatching them all, because I have 3 spare boxes in my PC

Batch 1 (1-90) - In Progress
 
Still breeding my 6Iv ditto with my 6Iv eevee. Results thus far:

1~100: Nothing
101~200: Nothing
201~300: Nothing
301~400: Nothing
401~500: Nothing
501~600: Nothing
601~700: Nothing
701~800: Nothing
801~900: Nothing
901~1000: Nothing
1001~1100: Nothing
1101~1200: Nothing
1201~1300: In Progress

Updating Post 672# and 711#

Another batch of 300 eggs = no shiny
Total: 900 eggs = no shiny

I'm going to switch the 6 IV Ditto non Kalos, with a English 6 IV Rhyhorn Kalos Bred and replaced the old 5 iv Bulbasaur with another Italian 6 IV female Bulbasaur I hatched.

Edit: Could someone kindly update the spreadsheet with my data? I don't want to make a mess.
