hermit17: Are you using any genderless Pokemon? It doesn't matter which one is holding the destiny knot.

RingoH: Happy to help! Everstone is optional, but highly preferred for its perk. Order of parents deposited into the daycare did not seem to influence the trick.

Noossab Blue: Dunno about SV. I've heard two different stories, where one person hatched a shiny and soft reset to switch out the parents, but lost the shiny forever. And the other story goes the opposite, where the person could hatch the shiny over and over when resetting. I guess you can tell if you're you getting the same gender and ability each time or not?

    I haven't actually been paying attention to gender because it hasn't mattered yet, and since Magikarp only have one ability I haven't looked at that either...

    But supposedly if I were getting the same gender/ability every time it would be safe to SR for a shiny? Not sure that I would chance it either way anymore with instacheck being gone...

      I think it would be hard to tell if it's worth doing or not. In past generations(at least in gen III and IV... do not recall how it worked in Gen V) the PID of the egg dictated Gender/Nature/Ability/Shinyness. If you were getting everything else the same wether it was shiny or not would stay the same as well. My gut says that if we do not know how these variables are being calculated, we would not know if shiny is tied to the other variable or not. I wouldn't personally want to keep collecting the same egg over and over to try it. But I like to err on the side of caution.

      Does this still work with the 1.2 patch?

      Yes it does. The patch had nothing to do with the game's internal mechanics.

        Can I keep soft resetting until I get a shiny so I can have a shiny with the IV's I need?

          Does anyone know if there is any predictable pattern to which stat is not being passed down? Also, is there any advice on the odds of that stat being a 31? My thoughs are that it should be about 1/32 , but realized there may be other factors involved in that particular odds. I just goofed up and had an egg that would have had speed be the non-passed down stat, and it would have been perfect..... then instead of soft-resetting to switch the parents I hit save..... (neither of my test parents had a 31vin speed but the baby that hatched did).

          Okay, getting a shiny through this method is possible. If it's worth anything, I do have the Shiny Charm.

          What I did was:
          1. Saved inside the Daycare. Deposited two English Gyarados, one holding Everstone and the other holding Destiny Knot, into Daycare. Biked, collected egg, hatched egg. Out came the shiny Magikarp.
          2. Soft resetted. From the PC storage I got two English Pumpkaboo, one holding Everstone and the other holding Destiny Knot. Dumped them into the Daycare. Biked, collected egg, hatched egg. Out came shiny Pumpkaboo.

            It doesn't seem to work with genderless Pokemon. I tried my hardest with a ditto and Porygon2 and it didn't work at all. :/

            Well, it works for genderless Pokemon. That's how I got my first Rotom.

            You need to use ditto + another genderless pokemon as testing parents. Otherwise it won't work
