Hi guys, I've got a question about shinies in relation to the Masuda Method. When you breed a Japanese and English Pokemon together and get an egg, is the shininess of the Pokemon in the egg determined when the egg is created or when the egg hatches? I ask because I have a bunch of Feebas eggs and I was thinking of just getting a group of them very close to hatching then just saving and resetting if none of the eggs hatch to reveal shinies.

It's determined when you pick up the Egg from the Day-Care Man.

How do people find out these things? I mean, I'm sure you found out from a site or word of mouth, but how do the sites find out about this stuff? o.O

The coding I'd assume, unless the devs themselves told someone. But yeah, it's when you receive the egg, it's nature, stats, IVs and stuff is all determined.

Edit: It could also be if someone saved right before the egg hatched and then tried to reset for a nature or whatever and realized nothing about it changed.

Do you Guys know about these "Wings Power ups"
You find them at Bridgies
They may come in handy

There similar to proteins. I don't use them do just sell them for extra cash 1500 per wing is awesome. I though you could only get 1 wing item and then they were gone but no they respawn.

A member of Gamefreak, Junichi Musada or something, revealed it, hence the name 'Musada Method'.

Don't expect a shiny right off the bat do. On my SS I been trying to hatch a shiny poliwag using the "Masuda Method" for awhile. Where talking 13 boxes and counting. Still no shiny.

The chances of getting a shiny using the Masuda method are actually higher in B/W than in the 4th gen games.

It's completely pointless to try to get a shiny Pokémon on purpose. In the Sinnoh games you can get them with long streaks using the Pokéradar. But using the Pokéradar was a form of self-torture in itself. In this game the rustling grass is just random but at least you're guaranteed something rare even though it may not be a shiny.

Just get them if you run into them, trying to get them on purpose is wasting precious time of your life. The Masuda method is only a technique that makes an infinitely low chance of it happening slightly less of an infinitely low chance of it happening.

It is rather easy when you know what to do and not to do. Always head for the farthest patch, don't switch from glittering to rustling patches and don't use the Radar in a corner. My first shiny always showed up within an hour and once you've chained 40 Pokémon, you can just reset the Radar over and over until you see another shiny patch. My record is 11 shiny Stantler and I remember some girl from the GameFaqs message boards who caught 133 shiny Eevee. It took her 2-3 days though.

I really can't be bothered to do such a thing. Still, in Black/White, there's no PokéRadar to do it. My streaks of the same Pokémon never got much further than five. And even if you pick the furthest patch of grass, it's fairly rare to meet the rare PokéRadar exclusive pokémon. It's just to tedious for me to bother with all that stuff. I don't really care for shinies anyway. I capture them when I happen to come across one but it's not a priority to collect them.

There's a video of a guy who's game had Prof. Juniper encounter a shiny Patrat lol

Too bad he can't trade her for it. That must suck though... It's like the game is laughing at your face.

Is that possible. Many people hack the Pokémon games you know. But it'd be funny if it happened.

It's possible just like that Hoenn trainer in RS that you help catch a Ralts.If your lucky(or unlucky?) enough the Ralts can be a shiny.

Hack pokemon can't be traded or be put in the New GTS.
You also can go online with it.
So in other words, cheaters never win, be happy with the Pokemons you have now.

The Wings aren't much like Vitamins - they only add a single EV (as opposed to the 10 a Vitamin gives you), but they can be used all the way up to the full 255 EVs (Vitamins stop working once you've reached 100 EVs in a single stat)

The Wings are good for selling, you get alot of money out of them.
and I already max out my pokemon EV, hopefuly it will work out right.

Not so sure about that. I read a thread last week about a guy that received a shiny Zorua w/ Lucky Egg by the use of the GTS. I doubt that someone will give a shiny like that to a random person. I believe that cheaters/hackers can still PokeSav a Pokemon in a way that it looks legit.

I've seen a few very suspicious shinies on the GTS.

What they really should fix, though, is the possibility of requesting things like a Lv. 5 Zekrom. This is impossible without hacking. They should make restrictions for certain non-breedable Pokémon. This could reduce hacks as well. Why are there restrictions on gender for Pokémon like Jynx or Mr. Mime, which are only obtainable in one gender, but not on levels. You can't legally get a Zekrom at lv. 5 so why allow the player to ask for it. If you get one like that, it's hacked.
