    Everyone on the internet is saying it is true and I'm finding it to be true by experience seeing as people are encountering many more shinies without the Masuda method. A few people have encountered 2 shinies in a horde at the same time.

    On my first play, which was about 40 hours, I found a shiny Gulpin in a horde and then a lone shiny Pachirisu. I restarted though, but on this playthrough however I found a shiny Snubbull... odds def. seem to have changed.

    I've tried this myself, and it didn't break my chain, but I might have just been lucky.

    Yes, there are a lot of shinies being found. Although the rate may have changed, the chances of it being 8x is just ridiculously small. My point is that there is no way you can put a number to it. Also, don't forget that hordes are 5 pokemon at once - equivalent to doing 5 random encounters, of course you're going to find shinies faster with them in the game. Honestly, the only way we could know for sure currently, would be if someone were to sit down and do an obscene number of random encounters as a statistical investigation.

    Ha only 4? I've been at it for nearly 6 hours if not more trying to get a shiny Gastly. Don't know the count because I keep tossing my Gastlies that are neither shiny nor Modest.

    You're gonna need a lot more than 4 eggs. Don't give up if you really want that shiny XD

    I love shiny Ponyta and I caught one not to long before this game came out with the poke radar on my Pearl version. If you have that game it might be easier on there, I'm not sure what grass patches are available for Ponyta in these games. I personally find chaining for shinies easier then breeding but that's just me. Either way good luck with your hunt.

    Seems like everyone can find a shiny Pokemon but me. I don't go looking for them, but I don't think I've ever found one in all of the years I've played these games. (since Red/Blue)

    I started MMing to get a shiny Poliwag sometime late last night. This morning, I was running around in the flowers by the daycare to hatch while training a Fletchinder, and a shiny Smeargle jumped out! It's my second one (not in this game, first was in Platinum) but I decided to catch it anyways.

    Meanwhile, Poliwag count is at 64 and the Pokeradar is hard to use :/

    I've been MMing for a shiny vulpix for 2 days now, I'm at 200~ or so eggs and nothing. I've never gotten a legit shiny nor have I ever tried to MM before, so I really have no idea what to expect other than riding around on the bike and hatching eggs for hours.

    Just a quick question how much information is actually out on this for this generation? I know that around 40 was the max last time but did they change this at all or is it pretty much the same.
    It happened again after a chain of 15 with Altarias, same spot.

    I'm chaining at the spot right next to the Draco Meteor move tutor. The spot isn't perfectly square, it's kind of like a fat 9. :P Anyway, the bottom left is kinda like a 2x2square attached to the rest of the flower patch. So they seem to be seperated... Touching moving grass in that 2x2 makes it pretend like it's an entirely different flower patch, "probably" breaking the chain.

    That's what I suspect, at least.

    Same here. I've been trying it different today, gather like 2-3 boxes of eggs (however many you want to hatch), head to the prism tower in Lumiose, and hatch them there. You can just ride around it by holding one direction of the d-pad. Might be useful for other bored MM'ers ....

    I actually already do go to the prism tower and tape my joystick to the side so I don't have to do that much work, that's probably why I've been doing this for hours without getting too irritated about it. I have a Talonflame with flame body so hopefully that's helping.

    Okay I'm so confuzzled about the new PokeRadar. How do I use it and how does it recharge in this game? i want to shiny hunt for a Swirlix and other Pokemon, but can't figure it how to use it correctly.

    So two days ago I decided I wanted to start breeding for a shiny. I picked my first target as a Honedge, because Aegislash is one of my favorite new pokemon, and the shiny versions of the entire family look awesome.

    After about 25 eggs, not entirely sure on the count because I had wonder traded some of the babies away, I hatched my first Gen VI Shiny Pokemon. I named her Shiny Blade at first, but have since decided to rechristen her Clarent.
    [SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    After that, I decided to breed some Pumpkaboo for wonder trade in order to be festive, and after a few eggs I decided to put it on hold while I search for the super sized version. I then moved my attention to breeding my Gengar with a japanese Gastly I got from WT. precisely 36 eggs later, out pops this other little beauty:
    [SPOILER][/SPOILER]

    Including the Pumpkaboo eggs, I believe I hatched about 75 eggs with two shinies... not too shabby!

    Now I'm breeding for an Adamant shiny Phantump. I'm really digging that the everstone now guarantees the nature beign passed down instead of 50%.

    EDIT- Okay apparently I don't remember how to use spoiler tags anymore... could someone give me a little help? I don't want to kill anyone's older computer. Thanks!

    @Emerald, very nice, be sure to post a picture of shiny Mega Gengar if you ever go for it!

    I have been playing since the first generation and never came across a shiny (wild or MM), but I might try my luck again this gen.
