1OmniOmega979Fri 15th Nov 2013 Hi! I just have a bit of a question as to getting the masuda method to work. I understand that you need 2 pokemon from different countries, but does that count if that pokemon is foreign AND traded to you from a friend? Allow me to explain my situation. ( Please note I'm from the US ) I have a Japanese Ditto that i got from a wonder trade, and my friend got a French Scyther from wonder trade and traded that to me. Will the Masuda Method still work in this case since the scyther was traded over to me? Or is it worth it just to recapture one of the two and retry? I haven't done the method for very long, i just wanted to make sure i wasnt wasting my time. Friend code is 1736-1218-0285 In game id: Dustin. Poison Safari: Seviper, Ariados, Toxicroak.
