Basically, Masuda Method is when you breed two different language Pokémon (English, German, French, Japanese, etc.) with each other in order to increase the odds of producing a shiny. The normal chances of breeding a shiny Pokémon is 1/8,192, the same as encountering one in the wild. But when you breed two foreign language Pokémon (make sure they are different from each other) the chances will increase to 1/2,048, which is 4x more likely to produce a shiny egg. This is useful because you can breed for egg moves, IVs, etc. In 4th generation, you can't pass down natures via everstone. In Black and White, the chances of producing a Masuda Method shiny are increased yet again to 1/1,365.3, and you can pass down natures via everstone.

A good example of pairs are Japanese Ditto and English Munna, German Pikachu and Japanese Pikachu. Make sure they are from other foreign language games (meaning you cannot use the German Magikarp you get in-game)

...I hope this made sense haha.

I'm up to 1,080 Charmander eggs, and you guessed it: not giving up.

It's been a while since I posted but I bring shiny news, I was bored RE and SR, so I decided to chain some more, and I got 3 new shiny Girafarig, I still high on sparkles, After the first I decided to keep chaining so I could get one for my sister, now I have 2 shiny females and one male which is very handy for the shiny dex in B&W. Sorry but I still shaking I'm so happy my 1 month drought is finally over, I wanted to keep going but I was running low on repels and I acidentally ran into a floatzel patch . But to everbody keep going you will get your shiny :D. I will update this post later with pics.

Edit: I probably get Black & White tomorrow I can't wait

Pics :

1st Girafarig



2nd Girafarig



3rd Girafarig

I finally made it to Iriccus City in Black. Since it's winter that means I get access to the double grass outside Dragonspiral Tower. I am going to dual hunt in there because it has nice shinies.

Right now I am playing in my White, trying to get an (two actually) Illuminate Staryu/Starmie to appear above level 40. I have found only one Staryu that was 40+ and it has Natural Cure. Ffffuuuu!

Oooh! Level 55 Staryu came up and it had Illuminate, then a few battles after a Level 57 Starmie came up and it had Illuminate. Yay :D

Okay, I average 45 REs every 5 minutes when dual hunting in double grass. So in an hour I should get 360 REs in, approximately.

I am bored so I am going to constantly update this posted.

@700 encounters.

I am going to do 200 one hour, then 100 the next, than 200 the next, until I get to 1000 today.

I have Serperior at level 53. I put these EV's on her:
252 Def, 252 SpA, 4 HP

So with my recent Masuda luck, I'm interested in another hunt. I am going to get as many boxes as possible tonight, and I will have 10 boxes when I hatch. I got a Japanese Tepig from the GTS for a Ditto, and bred that with an English Ditto to get a Lonely Tepig. I'm breeding Lonely Everstone Tepig with the aforementioned Japanese Tepig to try and get a Lonely Shiny Tepig.

The Golden Bacon will be mine!

After I get my 10 boxes, I will have 330 Tepigs hatched. But if I'm really lucky, there will be a shiny Tepig in those boxes! If I get that lucky, I'm going to focus on EVing it and leveling both it and Serperior to level 100. Then I'll MM Oshawott. I'm not too enthusiastic about this since I don't particularly like Oshawott or Samurott's shinies, but Dewott is cool. However, if I MM both of the others I might as well complete the set. Not looking forward to it, but I'll feel good about getting a full shiny trio.

So yeah, Happy Hunting! Wish Me Luck! Congrats on all recent shinies, especially those 3 Girafarigs! Did you give one to your sis?

Oh, by the way, if I can get the SD slot on my computer working I will have high quality Snivy, Servine, and Serperior pics.

Good luck with golden bacon, Shiny Doug!

I got to 1,000 REs at Dragon Spiral Tower. Tomorrow I might triple RE for it, using my step sister's DS XL. But the main reason I am posting this is because I recolored all the DW pictures for all Pokemon outside of Dragonspiral Tower and their evolutionary forms to be shiny.

hi everyone, congrats to every new shiny; they look cool.

Hatching section: well, nothing for now; currently 350 eggs and counting.

I will not be hunting for a couple of days; on saturday I'll continue were I left.

PD: I like the recolorings Landorus is making, they look great.

See you everyone, good luck in all your gameplays and hunts.

So yesterday after my triple shiny luck, I catched the chaining bug again I forgot how much I enjoyed it. Before I got to sleep, I was chaining again on route 221 because that's where I got my Girafarig's and yet again shinies. I caught myself 2 nidorina's so I can leave one the way it is and evolve the other into a shiny nidoqueen. I very happy with these ones because they're purple. I will edit this post later with pics.

Whassup ppl.

I'm now hunting for secret shiny target, so far at 138 E. I know, I only started half an hour ago :'(

EDIT: For those who're interested, I do use an Watchog for hunting. Here is it's summary for people who don't know what the "perfect" hunting Watchog is:

(Nature doesn't matter)

(High level)

Those are the very important features:

Item: SMOKE BALL! (so you can always run)
Ability: ILLUMINATE! (raises the likelihood of meeting wild pokémon)
Attacks: HYPNOSIS! (puts the shiny asleep), SUPER FANG! (makes the hp of the shiny go to half) others doesn't matter.

I recolored Gothita and Gothitelle (but not Gothorita) as well as Landorus. Oh, if you click Landorus in my signature you see all my shiny Pokemon. Little fun fact there~



I am also at 1,800 REs at Dragon Spiral Tower. I want to get up to at least 2,300 today.

Star Pokemon sounds a lot better than Shiny Pokemon. lol Makes them seem glamorous.

It's like Watchog was intentionally made to be a shiny hunting machine! Good luck on your secret hunt!

Okay, as some of you may already know, there is a GTS glitch (since I doubt the GTS could be this easily exploited) that currently allows shiny Genosect, Meloetta, and Keldeo to be downloaded to your games. I don't think it's legit, but I downloaded them and am likely to soon release them.

You change your DNS on your Wi-Fi to a certain number (If you want it PM me to ask) your Wi-Fi won't work on your DS for anything except the GTS. Then when you log on you will recieve one of the 3 randomly.
This sounds like DNS poisoning to use an unofficial hax GTS. Most certainly not legit. inb4 no unsupported devices: Please see the Shiny Hunting Manual:
Quote originally posted by Shiny Hunting Manual, Article 4:
Article 4: Legality

Section 1:
An Unsupported Device is defined as any hardware device or data cable which is neither produced by Nintendo or bears their Seal of Approval.

Section 2:
A Pokémon (shiny or otherwise) is considered Illegal if it fails any of the following conditions:
Condition 1: Its data has been generated or modified within the software environment of an Unsupported Device. Examples of this include use of emulators and save file modification.
Condition 2: It was found or altered by interaction between an Unsupported Device and a supported device. Examples of this include modification of the game's RAM via AR, and communications with an Unsupported Device via a supported medium to receive a Pokémon failing Condition 1.
Condition 3: Its acquisition has been hastened through use of such a device to gain knowledge which is otherwise hidden. Examples would include finding your Hidden ID or the contents of Eggs using an Unsupported Device.
Condition 4: It was found via an inactive section of code or ingame event which is normally inaccessible outside of a promotional Event, but has been enabled using an Unsupported Device.
Quote originally posted by Shiny Hunting Manual, Article 4, Section 4:
Sometimes, a player may wish to perform communication with an Unsupported Device to move an otherwise legal Pokémon into or through it. Provided this Communication does not alter the Pokémon's data in any useful way, this is called Unsupported Transport and does not affect its legality. This means that a Pokémon can be sent to/from a flash reader, or through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection without losing its Legality.
These magic fake-GTS shinies fail Condition 1.

So I've gotten myself a shiny Cresselia on my Pearl version, after 8,179 SR's. Video:
You know you didn't need to throw the Master Ball. Once it's been released, its values have been set and it will be shiny each time you encounter it. Also just wondering, was it shiny in the little box you see before it flies off? I'd speculate not but just making sure...

8179 Cresselia SRs? You must've been at it since D/P's release!

I'm going to try and get a shiny spiritomb. my plan is to get a regular spiritomb on heartgold on the pokewalker, and then transfer it to black and use the masuda method.
will keep this updated.

Congrats on that awesome Dragon!

Also, you probably just saved it as a weird format (or your camera did) which ruined the quality.

This is why discussion of them and the glitch is banned here. (Although stating that they're not legit is fine, so I am not saying you broke the rule)

Just to make sure, your Heart Gold is a different language, right? The reason I am asking is because two Pokemon being from different games is not the Masuda Method.

I am at 2100 encounters. Already thinking about my next hunt. Triple SR for Landorus? :D

oh no that's not what I'm doing, my heartgold is in english, so I wasn't planning on doing it like that. once my spiritomb is on black, I'm going to breed it with my japanese ditto.

Oh, alright then. Well, best of luck to you, and Spiritomb says good luck too!



Got to 2300 for my hunt~

So on White, seeing as how I already caught all the soft resettable Pokemon, I'm going to RE on Route 14. I like all the shinies there.

As for my SS starter hunt, I'm taking a break now, I'm at 5782 SRs. Ugh.

Unless you follow the SHC on Serebii, you might consider this a caught secret target.

Litwick, my new friend from Celestial Tower! Appeared after 597 REs on my Black Version! Modest sync failed, and I got one of the 4 natures that LOWERS his Special Attack (Jolly) so he won't be very competitive. I'm so happy I got this shiny, my first RE. It came so fast! I just glanced down and saw the camera zooming out from an RE with a shiny Litwick! I'm getting really lucky with my hunts. 2 early shinies in 1 week! I'll hatch my Tepig eggs next. I'm sad about the nature, but a shiny's a shiny.

The site won't let me post images all of a sudden. I need 15 posts. Good luck, congrats, and Happy Hunting!

How's it going fellow hunters! I just randomly encountered a shiny sewaddle in my pokemon white! my first 5th gen shiny!! I was training my Dewott in pinwheel forest using the Audino method. When i was trying to reach a shaking patch but got caught in a random encounter with a sewaddle. I almost ran away but when I looked at it closely it seemed different. So i checked online for a shiny sprite and to my surprise it was a shiny!! So happy to finally get a 5th gen shiny. I took a pictures here they are.
Congrats on Sewaddle! There's so many cool grass types in Unova... Whimsicott (duh), Lilligant, Leavanny, Sawsbuck... If I could do another run-through, I'd totally have Leavanny on my team. ^^

So I've gotten myself a shiny Cresselia on my Pearl version, after 8,179 SR's. Video:
nsfkldnskfl I always wanted a shiny Cresselia. Since she takes so long to SR, I gave up a while ago. Many congrats to your lovely shiny, though! :)

I have no dedicated hunts besides playing though White and hoping for a random shiny... /sad poster

As you probably guessed, no shinies here. (Surprise, surprise!) I think I'm going to start dual hunting again (two DSes, two games). I was dual hunting when I got my last shiny, and I just realized that it saves tons of time. I tried it yesterday, and even though I only had 3 hours to hunt, it's really 6 hours of shiny hunting! If only I had dual hunted during the 200+ hours I hunted over the past two months, "lol."

I'm focusing mostly on Mudkip and Drifloon right now. Mudkip is my top priority not because I particularly love shiny Mudkip, but because it opens up the door to Kyogre, which opens up the door to Rayquaza and Beldum, which are probably the two coolest shinies out there! My quest for all the Hoenn SRables continues!

I'm nearing my two month anniversary of my last shiny - it's only 3 days away! Hopefully that's a festival that will not be celebrated by G-Money.

Landorus (and ShinyDoug): Those recolors are incredible! They make the SHC much prettier. I love them!

pokewalker, I forgot to mention that I love your number of resets for Cresselia. That's about as close as you can get to the average! Talk about getting a shiny when you actually deserve one, "lol." You were only 13 encounters off of the average, which is incredibly close given the enormous scope. I don't think we'll see anyone get closer anytime soon, so it looks like you hold that obscure shiny hunting record for now.

Don't give up! That's a lot of shiny hunting but why give up when you've already done so much? I feel your pain though, I haven't had a shiny in a while and after days of hatching eggs for hours I took a break away from it. But, now I'm all ready to go again, so just keep going. Hopefully you'll get one soon!

Also good luck on Litwick! It's a cute little pokemon and a nice shiny. Hopefully you'll see some sparkles soon. I will also have to keep Axiom 22 in mind when hunting for something catchable next time.
Thanks! I won't give up! Shiny hunters don't quit and quitters don't shine! :D

Happy Hunting! *Gives Members Luck*
I think I just found the reason why I can't find any shinies; all the luck is being spread around to members, but not to co-owners! That's it! No wonder the regular members are the only ones getting shinies, "lol." Thanks for pointing out the source of my luck problem, ShinyDoug. :D

*hoping for someone to spread luck to a co-owner*

pokedex is almost complete on my SS: 490 caught, only 3 that I haven't caught are rayquaza, shaymin, and magikarp (the latter I'm going to get it last on purpose)
Wow, that's impressive. After shiny hunting, Pokedex work is the most fun thing to do in the game! I haven't completed a Pokedex since Blue, but it's something I've always wanted to do and have always been slowly working towards. 490 is a huge accomplishment - congrats!

Filling up the Pokedex is actually a really good way to shiny hunt. If you get one of every Pokemon, you're bound to have tons of encounters. It also diversifies which Pokemon you encounter, so you never know which one will turn out shiny! This is actually the way I got my shiny Magnemite - I was trying to fill up the Dex in Diamond, and I had transferred lots of final evolutions over from the third generation. I bred them because that's quicker than transferring first stage evolutions and then spending time on leveling them up, and so I ended up hatching at least an egg or two of most (not most, but definitely a lot) Kanto and Hoenn Pokemon. When I got the Magnemite egg so I could get Magnemite for my Dex, it came out shiny!!!

3 new shiny Girafarig

...

Edit: I probably get Black & White tomorrow I can't wait
Congrats on the Girafarig! I bet you wish you had a shiny of that Pokemon spelled backwards! :D

And do get B/W - they're a blast! I don't think I've ever had more fun playing a game before.

2 nidorina's so I can leave one the way it is and evolve the other into a shiny nidoqueen.
You're an awesome shiny hunter! Nice job! :O

For those who're interested, I do use an Watchog for hunting. Here is it's summary for people who don't know what the "perfect" hunting Watchog is:

(Nature doesn't matter)

(High level)

Those are the very important features:

Item: SMOKE BALL! (so you can always run)
Ability: ILLUMINATE! (raises the likelihood of meeting wild pokémon)
Attacks: HYPNOSIS! (puts the shiny asleep), SUPER FANG! (makes the hp of the shiny go to half) others doesn't matter.
It's great to have a shiny hunting Pokemon! Another perfect one is Smeargle - it can learn any move, so False Swipe/Spore/Mean Look/Recovery can be its moveset, making the chances of a catching a shiny maximized!

Quote originally posted by 2Cool4Mewtwo:
Congratulations!! Rayquaza is definitely the best shiny of all time. The color scheme is absolutely perfect - a menacing black dragon with bright yellow siding? It doesn't get any better than that! Awesome shiny, 2Cool4Mewtwo. You definitely deserve it.

So on White, seeing as how I already caught all the soft resettable Pokemon, I'm going to RE on Route 14. I like all the shinies there.

As for my SS starter hunt, I'm taking a break now, I'm at 5782 SRs. Ugh.
Wow, you should have a shiny by now! Each Johto starter reset is like three-in-one, so you actually have something like 17,346 encounters? That's insane. I really hope you get one soon! *gives luck*

SRing to get a shiny Kyurem.
Welcome to the club! Good luck on the Kyurem!

Do you have any other shinies?

Quote originally posted by ShinyDoug:
Unless you follow the SHC on Serebii, you might consider this a caught secret target.

Litwick, my new friend from Celestial Tower! Appeared after 597 REs on my Black Version! Modest sync failed, and I got one of the 4 natures that LOWERS his Special Attack (Jolly) so he won't be very competitive. I'm so happy I got this shiny, my first RE. It came so fast! I just glanced down and saw the camera zooming out from an RE with a shiny Litwick! I'm getting really lucky with my hunts. 2 early shinies in 1 week! I'll hatch my Tepig eggs next. I'm sad about the nature, but a shiny's a shiny.

The site won't let me post images all of a sudden. I need 15 posts. Good luck, congrats, and Happy Hunting!
...congratulations! You have great luck right now! 597 REs? Wow, that's nice. Good job on getting an awesome shiny.

*has nearly double the Litwick encounters and nowhere close the shiny luck* :/

My thoughts exactly. I'm glad to see all the shiny luck the club has! We're doing great!

Have fun playing through White! I estimated the chances of getting a shiny throughout the course of the game to be around 20%, so there is some hope! Still, enjoy the game and don't worry about shinies! If you get one, "nsfkldnskfl!" If you don't, you still get to play a great game, and now you have another place to hunt!
