you're still cool to me


yeah my shiny dratini find in fr/lg doesn't mean anything either when you can get a shiny dragonite or something in B2W2
I really hate how I've made more than 12,000 posts here. Thankfully this swaying, moving Chandelure makes it all worth it.

Complete pokedex + Masuda Method means I can effectively grind for shinies now.

Shiny eevee + Eeveelutions
Rhypherior
Crobat
Pelliper
Gyarados (Lake of Rage)
Baltoy (pure luck as I was breeding a Claydoll for my living dex and it happened to come out shiny)
Gen 1 starters
Gen 2 starters.

Working on Treecko now when I'm just watching stuff and need something to keep my hands/lower brain functions occupied.

Ok, in Black 2 and White 2, you actually get something for completing the pokedex (sans event legendaries like Mew, Jirachi, etc.). The Shiny charm. that makes it  3x more likely for a shiny to appear at any given time.

Now, starting in I believe Gen 4, Junichi Masuda specifically programmed the Masuda method. Basically, if you breed with a foreign pokemon, your chances of a shiny egg will drastically increase. Example, I breed my usual Eevee with a Japanese Ditto. It's chances of being shiny drastically increase.

If you have the Shiny charm and do the Masuda method, chances of a shiny are 1 in 1012 (8x more likely than the 8,192 in the wild).

I plan on SRing for shiny Latios after completing the dex, as well as MM breed for Eevee too. Not to mention the Round Charm makes more eggs pop out

My first shiny was a Zubat in Emerald. But it's not special because I found a shiny Zubat in HG, then a Golbat in Platinum.
