    I remember I had a similar issue with a Ditto (Legit stats and not max IVs) I made in Pokegen back in April (I released the Pokegend Ditto and now use a fully legit one on Pokemon Black). I personally would feel bad about getting a shiny with a downloaded Ditto, just because it dosn't feel legit, can't explain why for me it just dosn't. I guess it depends which one YOU want more, If you want the perfect IVs more, the process of getting the Shiny might take a hell of alot longer then if you bred using Nincada and Ditto but you would have more chance of getting the perfect IVs and your desired perfect IV shiny Nincada. If you used the Masuda method with the first Ditto then the Shiny process might be quicker but you would have less chance of the perfect IV spread. I personally would stick with the 2 Nincada as Masudaring can take a while anyway and as I said above for me downloaded Pokemon don't feel that legit, unless it's an event Pokemon I missed. It all comes down to what you think about the downloaded Ditto.

      The Celadon hunts continue for me! 2900 Dratini, 1450 Clefairy, and 5961 Eevee so far.

      What would you do, personally?

      - Would you use the second Ditto, since you've gotten to a point where the full max IVs don't make a difference?
      - Would you use a specific Ditto, or either Ditto, since the primary objective is getting a Shiny, even risking the desired IVs?
      - Would you not use the Ditto because you didn't earn it via trading and/or because a downloaded Ditto feels illegal?
      - Would you not use the Ditto to squeeze the maximum IV potential out of it?

      Lastly, disregarding the legality of the second Ditto:

      - Would you in any way feel bad about getting the Shiny with the second Ditto as a parent?

      I have been rather intrigued over my personal thoughts and determinations on this and would like to see your thoughts, as well.

      Thanks for reading and have a nice time hunting!
      I would definitely keep doing what you've been doing, using two parents that you acquired yourself. For me, using the second Ditto would take away from the legitimacy of the shiny, since I wouldn't have fully acquired it myself - I'd rather have 2 perfect IVs that I got using only my own Pokemon rather than 3 or 4 perfect IVs that are a result of trading and using someone else's Pokemon. It's a lot more rewarding to be able to say, "Hey, I got this 2 perfect-IVed shiny from scratch!"

      As for the first Ditto, you'd be sacrificing your chances of getting the Shedinja you want in exchange for shorter time spent getting it (and by "it", I mean a shiny Shedinja without awesome stats). You'd basically be punting the more valuable, but harder to obtain Shedinja so that you don't need to spend as much time hatching...since you wouldn't be getting the "ideal Shedinja" that you've worked so hard for, I don't think this option is really worth it, either.

      It all comes down to two questions:

      1) Would you give up your chances of getting a really great competitive shiny Shedinja if it meant that you don't have to hatch as many eggs?
      2) If so, would you use a Pokemon not obtained through natural means to increase your chances of getting a competitively decent - but still not great - shiny Shedinja?

      I would personally say no to both of them, but I can see how someone might want to use the first Ditto if they were less interested in hunting for a competitively awesome Shedinja and just wanted a shiny. It all depends on what you're hunting for (but a competitively awesome shiny Shedinja with a perfect nature and excellent IVs would be really cool!).

        Yes, that's pretty much my view on it. It doesn't feel right for a very simple reason:

        It wasn't earned.

        Think about it: Why do we choose not to hack (outright creation/editing) or even abuse the RNG (in-game exploitation) for Shinies? Because doing either thing is predictable, 100% controllable and not done via natural in-game methods nor by our very hands.

        We enjoy the chance, the effort, the time and knowing we're the ones contributing to every factor along the way. Take one thing out and it gets devalued. For some people (like me), even the smallest bit of devaluing can be enough to bug them forever.

        Sure, hunting Shinies isn't skill-based. It's a huge time sink and very goal-oriented, but even multitasked, droned time can infuse the final result with more personal significance. Just have to strike an inner balance on what one thinks is worth the time and effort, then going ahead with the chosen goal.

          Bear in mind that I have never (and still don't) worry at all about IV's of my Pokemon. If they are weak so be it. But I don't do competitive battling.

          I wouldn't really be that worried about using either ditto to get a shiny. A shiny is a shiny, and using MM is a legitimate thing intentionally introduced into the games.

          If I were doing competitive battling, I would not use the second ditto. To me, I would be getting an extra strong fighter that I didn't earn. The first one would be fine, as it seems a random encounter. But the second one would feel like cheating.

          Just my 2 cents worth.

            I agree, it's better doing things yourself than using easier methods like hacking or RNGing. There are a lots of methods to get shinies; masuda, chaining, shiny charm, normal hunting, random encounter, SR. The person who likes to hack it's for 2 reasons: 1)they are too lazy and preffer things the easier way 2) they do it just for fun when a game gets boring for them but still do things with their own effort and don't use hacks to troll people.
            I think there are more, but im just stating that not everything is black or White.
            In breeding mechanics, it always have a chance to choose 1-3 of either parents IV's and the others are random, and since the offspring is generated inside your game, it will always be legit i think, as long as you don't hack your game to have better offsprings or shinies. In other words, if you use natural ways, it's legit, if you hack obviously it's not. If the ditto is hacked to pass all it's IV's to the offspring always, it obviously is hack, but i don't think that exists, and the game always generates acording to IV values and random.

            I think I'm writing too much, better stop now before i end up writing a thesis or something similar.
            Still for moral purposes, it's better doing things with your own effort and/or luck than using cheating methods to get what you want.

              Well hey guys! I'm new to this club, as you can tell, and since I didn't see any sort of formal introduction, I figured I'd just hop in. Today is pretty special, because I caught my first shiny in 10 years, an exeggecute. The thrill is just the same now as it was then! ^__^

                Welcome to the club, KurtSnowee! Good luck on the hunt for a shiny Steelix!

                Welcome to the club, ViIsOP! I'm sorry to hear about the Koffing.

                Welcome to the club, Bobith! Congrats on the shiny Exeggcute!

                @Runasutaru: I agree with everyone else that you should stick with the two Nincada. The reward will feel more special doing it that way. Good luck!

                  Welcome!

                  That's a cool and fairly uncommon one to have. Were you looking for that one in particular or was it just a random one?

                  Agreed it feels great to get one!

                    Welcome, Bob! Can I call you Bob? Your Shuckley face makes me think "Bob". Poke the Shuckle and it goes bob... bob... bob...

                    It's quite nice to get a Shiny after such a big drought! I know I was excited enough to tremble a bit when I first chained a Shiny, since it was the first Shiny I'd acquired after all my Gen I-III games (and my GBA) were stolen.

                    I hope you keep having good fortune!

                    I was already going to stick to my guns, but it's intriguing to see everyone's replies on the matter. I hope the discussion was (or may still be, if anyone else replies) interesting for all of you! I feel it helps us get to know each other more.

                    Would you like any similar morally/personally ambiguous scenarios to be brought up in the future, if I come up with or run into something?

                    Speaking of which: Do you guys think it would make sense to include the Shinies I got from GTS trading on my Shiny Hunter card? They're legal for sure and their catch locations seem innocuous enough. With them being a Graveler and two Raticates, I think it's possible to assert the equivalence of the legality to legitimacy. In any case...

                    Good luck on your hunts, guys!

                      Of course! Everyone's always invited to bring up stuff to talk about in the club, and it adds fun things to post about. We can also have a discussion about cool hunt ideas and then vote on the best ones for the August Quest, so feel free to suggest some hunt ideas for the club!

                      To answer your question, I personally wouldn't put traded shinies on my card, but that's just me. I like to catch all of my shinies myself, and the fun is mostly in the hunt and knowing that I went through the work of getting them. That said, they're still legit shinies, so there's nothing wrong with having them on a card. I just like showing off my own shinies a bit more, as they seen infinitely more special to me.

                      I should probably update my card at some point...it looks like I haven't touched it since 2011! I'm two shinies behind and still using a nonstandard pluralization of "shinies"! But shoot, only two shinies behind...I really ought to catch more than one per year, haha. Time to pick up the pace! Eevee, Dratini, and Clefairy, shine!

                        I agree with G-Money. You can have shinies that were obtained through the GTS on your card if you want, but it's not something that I would do with mine. The shiny Gyarados from the Lake of Rage is legit, but it's not one that I list on my card because it doesn't feel as special as the ones that I hunted for or encountered randomly. It's up to the individual if they want to include shinies obtained through trades and guaranteed shinies like Gyarados.

They're legal for sure and their catch locations seem innocuous enough. With them being a Graveler and two Raticates, I think it's possible to assert the equivalence of the legality to legitimacy.
                          Clearly I think that you can put an event or Red Guarados on your card. The thing is to tell people where it came from so they know, otherwise it can be misleading. At the end of the day people can lie online, but what's the point. So if you want to I say do it, just show they are from the GTS (or at least don't lie about where they came from).

                            Hi there! I'm new to this club and new to the entire forums site. I have a few shinies (all from GTS/negotiations, however), and am masuda methoding for shiny eevee. Hopefully I can get the eevee within 30 days...

                              Thanks for the warm welcome guys! In answer to your questions, I wasn't hunting for anything at the time, just running around in the safari zone in my old Fire Red game. I was pretty freaked out because I thought it might flee. Thankfully, it didn't.
                              And yes, you can call me Bob.

                              I also think the long, slow grind for that perfect shiny is what makes it truly worth it. My friends all give me flak because they can kick my butt with their full perfect IV teams they hacked in, but raising each of my pokemon, not just my shinies give me more satisfaction then any victory would. Especially randomly encountering a shiny. It's like winning the lottery, but more likely and (very slightly) less exciting. Trading for one, like hacking one, just isn't the same, it's too easy.

                                Hey, hey! Welcome to the club and good luck on the Eevee!

                                Do you have any interesting Shinies coming from those trades you've made?

                                Yeah, that seems to be pretty fair. I actually have one trade Shiny on there already, an IRL trade. You may not believe it, but when I asked my friend what he wanted for his Floatzel, he asked for a FEAR Rattata - pretty amusing deal, if you ask me!

                                As for the Shinies currently in my signature... My card, in case you've ever wondered, has the symbols in this order:

                                Encounter/Egg (no Masuda)
                                Stationary/PokéRadar
                                Trade (including GTS)/Masuda method

                                I'll give it an update when I get another Shiny.

                                A side note: I certainly do value my own Shinies more than the ones from the trades, at least on a baseline level. However, I can still form an attachment on the long-term and enjoy them as much as my own, if and only if they're properly nicknamed. My friend let me nickname his Floatzel before trading, while one of the Raticates I got from the GTS (likely the only Raticate I'll keep out of the two) has a nickname, even if written in Japanese. There is an exception, though... my Golem (originally a Graveler from the GTS) isn't nicknamed, but since a golem is a mythical being as it is and the word is pretty cool, it's a case where I don't mind the lack of a nickname.

                                  Hopefully that quote worked... But yes I did get a shiny horsea at level 24. When I saw I had it I was like, "Time to train this to a competitor in battles". about 5-6 gameplay hours and a TON of Hall of Fames later, it's a shiny Lv.100 Kingdra. (feels great to train when you want to train a pokemon to level 100, it sort of easier to make an effort and keep training that pokemon, you know?

                                  Just got a shiny level 100 japanese Dragonite from GTS 3 days ago (now lets see if I can actually win competitive battles <.<).

                                    Ohhh, very close! Any tag that starts with a word ends with that word plus a forward slash preceding it. Something like (quote)(/quote), if you replaced the parentheses with square brackets.

                                    Unless the metagame is particularly rigged against any movesets you have based on egg moves you have/don't have, it should be easy to adapt and win, with some practice!

                                      Thank you for the information, runasutaru.

                                      It's great to MM for eevees; they have great evolutions and if I get a shiny eevee, well... I'll know what a shiny Sylveon looks like (Lol...).

                                      2 Hours of MM'ing for Eevee results are as follows:

                                      Total Eevees:23
                                      Eevees with Adaptability:12
                                      Eevees with Run away:11
                                      Shiny Eevees:0

                                      Results will be updated at 2:30 P.M. CDT.

                                        Two hours for 23 Eevees? Are you stopping a lot to check abilities and IVs, are not in the rhythm yet or are still swapping parents a lot?

                                        As for me, I'm still doing the same old - multitasking hatching with browsing the Internet, listening to music and all that. Hopefully I'll get this Nincada within this month, haha!

                                          Actually none of the above. I just take breaks quite often and it takes a while to hatch eevee eggs.

                                          Also, I've updated my Eevee count.

                                          Eevees total:53
                                          Eevees with adaptability:26
                                          Eevees with Run Away:27
                                          Shiny Eevees:0

                                          Next update: 7:30 P.M. CDT (I'm taking breaks often and looking at this forum frequently, so yeah...)

                                              Yeah, the eggs of that step tier take a while to hatch - I know that from experience as well. I guess breaks make sense in that time factoring.

                                              @Chr. Draco: Congratulations on that Shiny Cresselia! Pretty nice Shiny to have!

                                                    Does this mean to get a shiny spheal only through encounter in the wild or can we also MM for it?

                                                    Also, how does everyone think of the new gen 6 pokemon announced, honedge?
