Generation VI appears to work the same as Generation V (generating a probability of 6/4096 due to Generation VI's increased Shiny odds). Another popular method to get just about every single Shiny Pokémon is good old fashioned Pokémon Breeding. A Pokémon traded internationally while still in its Egg will retain the internal marking which recognizes it as a foreign Pokémon even though it appears to be native to the game it was hatched in. Shiny hunting works the same way (although this would be more like rolling a 512-sided die). An Egg resulting from such a pairing will have a higher likelihood of being Shiny. The Masuda method was likely coded as incentive for players to use the GTS's international trading services. Ob ein Pokémon in seinem schillernden oder in seinem gewohnten Farbkleid erscheint, legt das Spiel zum selben Zeitpunkt fest, zu dem auch die anderen Werte (wie das Wesen, die Fähigkeit oder die DVs) ermittelt werden – bei Kampfbeginn gegen ein wildes Pokémon, beim Erhalt eines Eis oder beim Erhalt eines Geschenk-Pokémon. Foreign language Pokémon obtained via in-game trades, such as the Meister's Foppa and Lt. Surge's Volty, are treated as being from the same language as the game they were generated in, so they cannot be bred with another Pokémon from the same language for the Masuda method. You have to wait for the two Pokémon to produce the egg in the first place and then you have to ride your bike back and forth for a few minutes for the egg to hatch. ©2000–2012, 2019 Marriland and its licensors. The Masuda method (Japanese: 国際結婚 international marriage), also known as Masuda's method, is a fan-made term which describes a way to obtain Shiny Pokémon more easily from Generation IV onwards. Der Grund dafür ist, dass das Spiel hierfür nicht extra einen Wert zufällig generiert, der das Pokémon ggf. The most common way to arrange such a pairing is to use one foreign Pokémon and one from the game in which the breeding occurs, although the method will work in any game provided at least one of the Pokémon in the pair is from a language different t… Fortunately, starting with Diamond and Pearl, there is a special feature known by fans as the Masuda method (MM for short), named after GAME FREAK Director Junichi Masuda, that increases the chances of getting a Shiny Pokémon from an egg if both of its parents are from different languages. If the game recognizes the two Pokémon in the daycare as having different languages, then when an Egg is generated, the game will generate extra personality values in an attempt to find one that results in a Shiny Pokémon. In Generation IV, if the Masuda method is in effect, the Everstone will fail to increase the chance of passing on a Nature. Similar to how, if you flip a coin, you’re not guaranteed to get a heads if you flip it twice, even though it’s a 1/2 chance. You’re not doing anything wrong, this is just how probability works. Even with the best odds, you may still need to hatch thousands of eggs before getting a shiny, or you This stacks with the Shiny Charm's effect. The Masuda method increases the number of attempts the game makes to see if the Pokémon is Shiny, and the amount it increases it by varies by game. However, there is a method that allows you to save some time in the process, it is the Masuda Method. Even without it, the odds are still pretty good. From Generation IV onwards, trading with games from other countries became easier due to the Nintendo DS's ability to communicate through Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection. In Generation IV, it adds +4 to the chances of an egg being Shiny: 5 in 8192, or 1 in 1638. The most common way to arrange such a pairing is to use one foreign Pokémon and one from the game in which the breeding occurs, although the method will work in any game provided at least one of the Pokémon in the pair is from a language different to the language the game is being played in. From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia. An Egg resulting from such a pairing will have a higher likelihood of being Shiny. An internal marker on each Pokémon (at 0x17 prior to Generation VI, 0xE3 thereafter) identifies their "original language".
