    Default Shiny egg chaining: Fact or Myth?

    So I recently heard that you can chain eggs by declining the first 42, then hatching after that, and there's a better chance of the pokemon being shiny. Now I was wondering... Since all the responces on the thread are all like "Cool, I'm gonna try it!" I'm wondering... Does it work?

    Somehow, I doubt that's true. I don't advise you try it, as it has never been confirmed and will most likely just waste your time.

    Of course, you can use the Masuda Method and get a Japanese Ditto, and of course, the chances of shininess will be larger than normal for every egg.

    Not in the code of any game.
    I hate how people covet events and treat them as if they have value, so I make all my events free to everyone. Don't be a jerk and treat them as if they have value by adding them to your thread. Random female DW Pokémon - please use these for breeding purposes only.

    I really doubt it's true, but at the same time I wonder how people got the idea.
    Sort of like the one who said that having a trainer ID that starts and ends with a 3 gives you a better chance to find a shiny starter when SRing.

    Well basically the rule is: if the japanese code-crackers didn't mention it in 24 hours after the official release of the game, it's probably not true.

    I don't see why the egg you select will give it a better chance of being shiny. It should just be exactly the same. Better ways to get a shiny is by breeding Pokemon from your game with foreign Pokemon or PokeRadar chaining.
