I was under the impression that you couldn't use masuda method for badge quest shinies, and that they all had to be 1/8192 shinies?
That's not good, my BQ is going down in flames. Are the official badge quest rules posted somewhere? Doing a BQ in Diamond is becoming less appealing by the second. I have high hopes of plenty of MM hatching in my future.

If someone tries telling me I can't MM on my badgequest after I've already hatched 3,900 I will go mental!

Why should it matter how someone legitally obtains the shiny before the badge? Especially when REing is the quickest method IMO.

If it's your own personal badge quest it's your own personal rules. Enjoy it!

Since when are there any official or defined rules for a badge quest? Just make up your own rules. As long as you get a shiny before each badge that's all that really matters. Not like you're gonna win a prize or anything for following a certain set of "rules."

With that said, good luck to anyone out there who is currently working on a shiny badge quest. I'm going to start one on my LeafGreen as soon as Rayquaza shines (currently at 3000 SRs).

Just to throw my two cents in.... I've seen plenty of people MM in 5th Gen BQs, so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to in 4th Gen. Personally, I've never MM'd for a BQ, but that's because my only BQ has been in LeafGreen.

I don't intend to MM once my Black BQ starts (if Snivy ever shines), but that's mostly because I've pretty much designated my White version as my MMing-only game, excepting a couple RE hunts there.

Anyway, I'm up to 975 Blitzles with no shiny... I'm about 60 Ponytas into the next 180, hopefully one shines. Otherwise, this hunt will hit 2k eggs combined. Good luck to everyone on their hunts =)

yes some ppl MM but ive never heard of any badge quest rules......... not seeing why ppl are doubting MMing its a legit way to get shinies and most ppl MM on blakc/white the chances are even lower than on 4th gen

My brother got a shiny Grimer last night in his White, via MM (his first shiny in White). He doesn't tend to hatch large numbers of eggs, just keeps the ones with good natures.

Me, on the other hand? Still hatching Tauros (slowly) on Black. Platinum news - I somehow managed to get to Cynthia with my party on level 49 highest, but with only 7 Full Restores remaining. I had no choice but to lose and I'll be level grinding soon... Then I can get to Pal Park and transfer my shiny Crobat over from my dying Ruby...
