Is it true that if you breed a shiny Pokemon in the daycare, the chances that the baby will be a shiny go up? If so, what are the odds?

First You'll need a breedable Shiny to start with :D

IIRC, the chance of the baby also being shiny is 1/64.

The odds of having a shiny parent with a non-shiny parent producing a shiny offspring are approxemently 1/64. Contrary to 3rd gen, which has no greater chance if the parent is shiny. I believe they changed this to avoid any glitch abuse.

Just incase you're wondering, two shinies cannot mate.

EDIT: Argh. You beat me to it, Kuratosu. XD

I know that...

Anyway, thx guys. A 1/64 chance is great!

Odd of getting shiny from one shiny and non-shiny parents is 1/64? That seems very much easier than one's in 3rd generation (R/S/E), which is 1/8---.

It's 1/8192. It used to be rumored as 1/655361, which is plain ridiculous, until someone found out what it really was.

I beleave the odds are 1/64 if the parent is a shiny.

i wonder if you breed 2 shiny pokemon would the offspring chance be 1/32?

A guy that posted before in this thread that two shinies can't breed or something. I wonder why.

In GSC Generation, the game counted two Pokemon as "related" if their IV's were too similar, and wouldn't let them breed. All shinies have similar IV's, so the game thinks their related.

I've used this method to breed shinies by using a shiny ditto, but I'm lazy and got bored with it. I got about four shinies before I finally stopped.

It's only 1/64 only when you breed a Shiny Ditto with something. ONLY Shiny Ditto. I've tested it and it's true.

Hm, makes the game more realistic. Related people don't normally breed.

Anyway, Dunsparce, does that mean that the chances won't be 1/64 if I bred my shiny Gyarados with something? If so, what would the chances be?

It would be the same chances as breeding two normal Pokemon.

How do you know that you didn't just get bad luck? It wouldn't make sense if it was only for Ditto, because IV's can get passed down when normal Pokemon breed.

If the female is shiny the offspring has a 1/64 chance of being a shiny.

The 'mother' passes down IV's, the 'father' passes moves, that is why it works this way.

Haven't you guys read on the website or tried it? It's still 1/8192 as Spheal 2 said.(oh yeah the 1/8192 also counts on battles against trainers so you better be careful since it happened to me.....................)

That's for Ru/Sa.

This is GSC.

Please accept there may be differences between games.

Sorry didn't read it but they did still say that there is still a normal chance unless it's the egg that has a 50% chance of being a shiny.............
