    Whoa! This certainly has been my month. Last week I found a shiny Mesprit which took only about 5 or so soft resets in Black 2, and the next day I found 2 shiny Patrat. Day after two shiny Watchog, a few days later shiny Uxie, and just now a shiny Cresselia! I AM using the shiny charm, but still. Every time I find a shiny Legendary I'm always surprised, but I've found so many. Don't know why I'm still surprised and excited lol

    Hey guts, im starting to try the masuda method in my Black game and i would love to know if someone can help me to have a foregeing Ditto? Im from Argentina, i live in Argentina and the game was first used in here however i think the cartridge is from the USA so i would be needing a european or japanese game, right? Or a American Ditto will work?

    You need any Ditto from a foreign language game. So If your game is English, you need a Japanese, Korean, Spanish, German, French, or Italian Ditto. As long as the two parents are from two different languages, nothing else matters.

    Yes my game is in english, so i guess i need to find any other Ditto. Do you know how i can do that? I mean, i could check the GTS but how do i know if they are from another lenguage? Sorry for the silly questions x3

    You could easily download one from pokecheck, but if you don't like that idea, you can sort pokemon by country on the GTS. Just pick an Asian country, such as the very active population of Japan, and see what you can get.

    I just what you said, using the gts i pick japan and i traded a Ditto...for a Ditto xD. However the Ditto that i recieved it has a english name (Ditto) and her OT is "Roger" so i dont know if its really japanese? I have a Pidgeotto that i`d recieved from another trade that the OT has japanese latter, same with the name of the pokemon (not the specie, but the nickname). My question is: If the pokemon is from a foreign lenguaje, it`s name must be in that lenguaje? @_@ sorry for so many questions

    All of my Japanese and Korean Dittos have their name in Japanese or Korean characters. The characters should only change to English if the Pokemon evolves on a different language cartridge, and Ditto doesn't evolve. Also, although the Japanese game allows the OT to use Latin characters to choose a name, they're in a strange font (it kind of looks like Courier New) and the spacing between the letters is very weird. You would know immediately what I'm talking about if your Ditto's OT was like that. So it sounds to me like your Ditto isn't foreign.

    What I do when I want a Japanese Ditto is a catch a Ditto in my game and then offer it up on the GTS for another Ditto. If someone gives you another English (or whatever language you're using) Ditto, then you just keep offering them until you get a Japanese or Korean or foreign one. Usually it only takes a couple of trades to get one.

    If you mean "Can you breed two Pokemon together and get a shiny offspring", then the answer is yes. You can also MM (Masuda Method) by using a foreign Pokemon with one of your Pokemon and increase your chances of getting a shiny from 1/8192 to 1/1366 in Gen V.

    If you mean "Can you breed two shinies together and get a shiny offspring", the answer is also yes, but the chances that the offspring will be shiny are not increased. You can also use the Masuda Method with shinies.

    If you mean "Can shiny Pokemon breed", then the answer is "yes, if they are a Pokemon that is able to breed in the first place".

    I caught my first shiny! RE! It's a Stoutland. I'm so happy. It was a surprise because I was training Victini on route 2 when the magic happened.

    I caught my first shiny of the sequels yesterday. Replayed through Black 2 and literally the battle right after getting pokeballs, a shiny patrat appears. I was afraid i'd have to beat it like the golden poochyena in my ruby game

    718/718 Pokemon caught as of 4/13/14

    Well I've resumed working on my Shiny Psyduck Masuda Method hunt. I started the hunt several months ago and it put it off for a while, but I restarted it last week and I've hatched an additional 200 eggs since I last updated. That's not much but since I rarely play White version these days it's getting harder to focus on Shiny hunts. I've been playing Black 2 a bit more and I'm doing random encounters on Route 22. I'm not looking for anything in particular; I'm just hoping that another Shiny appears since I once found a Shiny Pelipper there.

    Ugh. I'm on my possibly 300-350th houndour egg now. Houndoom is my favorite pokemon, and with the rumors of a new mega evolution/evolution for him I have to have a shiny competitive for him. I've never gotten a shiny when trying, my first and only two were an swablu and omanyte on sapphire randomly.

    Am I the only one who just releases the hatched pokemon once a set of 5 is complete? I'm trying to get a shiny of him ASAP with everstone and MM. God I hope its male, or I may just cry. I'll be able to handle not having early bird, it'll hurt though. I can't have a female houndoom. That just doesnt sit right with me for some reason.

    Well this is my first post in this thread here, but I read through a bunch of the older thread and this one as well.

    So, hello, I'm Slix, and I've got a bunch of shinies from various methods on my games already, but right now I'm hunting for a shiny Houndour (we're in this together, EpicLT! I also release as I hatch, it seems faster to me) using my Shiny Charm and the Masuda Method on my White 2. I'm up to about 1400 eggs already, no luck so far. Here's hoping! Good luck to everyone else as well!

    Houndoom's pretty awesome. He's one of my favorite Pokemon, too, and he really needs that mega evolution because of his bad stats. If he does have one, you better believe that I'll be using him competitively Houndour was my first shiny that I ever hatched, after 2 eggs, and I wasn't even MM'ing! Mine is male with Early Bird, too. Anyway, to answer your question, I also release the set of 5 I have in my party before getting more eggs. It makes the most sense that way, in my opinion.

    Last night, after about 1750 eggs, I finally got my shiny Houndour. She's all EV trained already, Timid, and is working on leveling up to level 100.

    What next now...

    Last night at around 9:55 P.M. I came across a Shiny Litwick in Celestial Tower while EV Training my Shiny Suicune from the event for Gen 4 games.

    It's ironic because I was literally JUST talking to my Mom about Shiny Litwick a few minutes before it appeared. I also had a really strong feeling that I would find a Shiny while EV Training.

    I caught it in the first Poké Ball that was thrown. It has Bashful Nature and it's Characteristic is Highly Curious.

    Her IVs are...
    HP: 22 or 23
    Attack: 20 or 21
    Defense: 10 or11
    Sp. Attack: 30
    Sp. Defense: 13 or 14
    Speed: 8 or 9

    Yes, I do have the Shiny Charm. But it's not about the current shiny encounter odds depending on the situation. It's about whether or not it's legit, which it is legit, and a shiny is a shiny! ^w^

    Getting back into shiny hunting (and Pokemon in general) after a long break. I'm currently SRing for a shiny starter in HeartGold, with 200 SRs completed so far. Hoping for a shiny Totodile, but I would be quite pleased if either of the other two shined as well.
