Shiny Charm and Masuda Method

I will be more than happy to provide a control with just the Masuda method if you wish, for comparison's sake. All I need is my japanese ditto from white 2 :P
 
Updating - got a Shiny Treecko @ egg #299. Will continue updating my post at the top of this page on my way to 1000, alternating pokemon if/when I get a shiny.
 
After batch 4, or 400 eggs, I have that one shiny I reported earlier (darumaka). I hatched it at #312. Like Tortured_Soul, I'll keep updating this post with more results.

Edit: After batch 5 (500 eggs), still just the one shiny previously reported

Edit: Batch 6 completed, no new shinies. Totals so far: 1 shiny / 600 eggs.

Batch 7, no shiny.

Wichu, have you decided what data you are going to include? There are several people here pledging to hatch eggs, and following through with it. That's awesome!

However, Zoreia posted their results without already having pledged eggs for this study, unless they PMed you. Two shinies out of 60 eggs is certainly impressive and worth posting somewhere, but this sort of result could skew the data unless Zoreia had already promised to hatch the 60 eggs. People with positive results, who had not previously pledged to hatch eggs, are more likely to appear here and post than people with negative results.
 
Going by the 100s
Batch 1: 0
Batch 2: 0
Batch 3: 0
Batch 4: 0
Batch 5: 0
Batch 6: 0
Batch 7: 0
Batch 8: 1 (Egg# 793)
Batch 9: 1 (Egg# 869)
Batch 10: 0

Total hatched: 1000/1000
Total shinies: 2

EDIT: For my other 200 eggs ima switch out chikorita and go with mareep with same French ditto
COMPLETED

I'll do more, but I need a break for a while.

That's a ridiculous number.

I ask you people to keep all your updates in a single post. I'll edit the current posts when I'm home (unless you do it by yourselves until then). Standalone posts may go on, however.

And remember, people, it's important to say whether the pokémon is of a forein region or foreign language whenever you know the difference. And I'm not Wichu, but I'd guess it's better that whoever got shinies don't stop at the last shiny Egg and keep going at least until a round number.
 
Hey, just wanted to consolidate all the hatched eggs + all the hatched shinies in one post. Please add to the total with every post. Or not. lol.

Total number of eggs hatched: 5,960
Total number of shinies hatched: 15


I don't think I made a mistake, but I'm probably wrong on that. I have this strange feeling that I skipped 100 or so eggs. Could someone go and confirm my number? Thanks.

It looks like the probability so far for shiny charm + MM is .25%. Compared to just MM, it's 1/1024 or .09%. I know that 6,000 is a really low number and not really indicative of the actual probability, but I like to think that this method works lol. Either you guys are right or just really lucky with the shinies (especially the guy that got 7!!!).

Wish I had the shiny charm :(

Well my apologies for not pledging then. I'll fix it.

I pledge to do 300 eggs in batches of 100. I will be using the following parents:

Japanese Ditto + US Buneary

Batch 1: No shiny :(
Batch 2: ~~~~~
Batch 3: ~~~~~

I will be updating this as I go along. :P

I just got shiny charm. I'm planning to hatch 200 eggs. I am unsure of the region at the moment as I plan to get the parent(s) from GTS later.

Edit: I just hatched 200 eggs with a Japanese fletchling for a mother and an ENG/NA father. No shiny Pokemon yet, but I'll go for another 200.

Edit 2: I just hatched another 200 (bringing the total to 400). Still no shinies. I swapped out the Japanese fletchling for a Japanese Ditto, but the region/language still still be different. I am working on doing an additional 200, which would bring the total up to 600.

Got my shiny charm last week. I heard about what you guys were doing here and knew I had to help out. For starters, I'll pledge 300 eggs.

EDIT: Done

Eggs 1-35: JPN Kricketot (F) with ENG Kricketot (M) -- Egg #11 was shiny so I switched Pokemon.

Eggs 36-100: JPN Feebas (M) with ENG Feebas (F) -- Nothing

Eggs 101-200: Nothing

Eggs 201-300: Nothing

I'll probably continue with more batches but I can't commit to a specific number right now so I'll post again whenever I get the chance :)
