    I thought the odds were now 2/8192 for REing because of the double battles you can get into in the tall grass?

    No, the chance for a shiny in tall grass is 2/16384, or 1/8192. The odds doesn't actually change since they are calculated for each individual pokemon, thus it is possible for none of them to come up shiny, one of them to come up shiny, or for both of them to come up shiny, although the latter is really friggin' unlikely.

    To celebrate hatching a shiny Zorua I will be trading away the father: A level 71 japanese Zorua.

    PM me a fair offer, and we can make a deal.

    Don't offer me starters unless they are non-english or something really extraordinary.

    Also up for trade: Level 69 Male Japanese Munna.

    Lulz. I have a lvl 79 Petilil from when I got my Liligant.
    @Krishnath That would suck because you would have to choose which one you want. :/

    Yeah, but the chances of two shinies showing up at once is like 1/67108864. Which is very friggin unlikely.

I turn off my DS when I am done playing for the day (or if I have stuff to do that may take a while), and I managed to hatch a shiny Zorua in 321 eggs.

    As for your second question. No, not really. For MMing you have a 6/8192 chance for each individual egg, while with REing, you have a 1/8192 for each individual encounter, regardless of what you do, the odds never change.
    Oh ok thanks ! Around 250 eggs hatched now

    Just starting to MM for a Deino/Breed for a Subway Deino. I'm pretty lucky, I got a Naive Deino already just for my Dex, and the Japanese Ditto I got happens to have a 29 Speed IV. Considering Deino is one of my favorite shinies and Hydregion will be on my Subway team, I think this a very good omen.

    This is my first time breeding more than one of anything in B/W, so how do you guys hatch? Do you keep Fly on your hatching Pokemon so you can go to Skyarrow when your eggs are full? Do you return for another egg after every hatch, or only when most/all are hatched?

    Small question about the MM method. If I have say a Japanese Beldum breeding with an english ditto, that should be fine; right?

    ^ make sure you have a Pokemon with Flame Body ability to speed it up. I use Litwick, but Larvesta is probably the best choice since you can use Fly as well.

    Get a pokemon with flame body or magma armor. It will make the hatching go a lot faster.

    Congratulations. I suggest you try your hand at MMing, the odds are better, and you can control what pokemon you get as a shiny (it doesn't work with legendaries, well, except Phione).

    I was lucky enough to find a Japanese Ditto over the GTS, the guy only wanted any Ditto for it. Maybe he's MMing too.

    Quite possibly.

    240 eggs into my shiny munna hunt, I shall try to hit 330 today. But tomorrow, the 3DS is released, so yeah, tomorrow I start transfering 4th gen pokemon to White.
