    One question, though, since they never cleared it up on the video.

    The non shiny Munchlaxes were in the box, so I assume it's safe to visit that PokeCentre to put away hatched Pokemon?

    Well, I got nothing better to do today, so I'll give it a shot. :/ I'll just do something simple, like Magikarp.

    That's pretty amazing. I'd do it on Diamond, but I have no room in the PC <_<

    I ought to try that. I was breeding for Riolus with Blaze Kick, and I'd have to try that sometime.

    For someone who can't chain (like me :D) this sounds awesome. I'm going to try it on Pearl right now (wish I could on Diamond but my pc is almost full).
  11. Edit: changed my mind.

    Giving it a try =o I'm horrible at chaining... I only have one shiny and it's purely by luck.

    I highly doubt this is going to work.

    i hope this doesn't work out, like that guy on the video said, Shinies are already so common with the pokeradar and such, this would just ruin shinies.

    Wait, I'm confuzzled. I thought rejecting the egg didn't 'delete' it, the old man just kept it until you accept it.

    And the 43rd egg is shiny? The vid seemed to contradict itself, after showing 3 boxes of Munchlaxes and saying something about 20 Vulpixes.

    No the 43rd egg is not shiny, but the eggs after the 42nd egg are likely to be shiny. E.g.- The guy hatched 3 boxes full of Munchlaxes after the 42nd egg and got a shiny.

    It's preety time consuming.

    i think the vid said to reject the first 42 and then accept the 43rd and the rest of them and this is supposed to increase ur chances to 1/200 of getting a shiny. No where was it stated that the 43rd is shiny...and the guy said it took him 68 eggs after the 42 to hatch the munchlax...and u reject the egg by saying no to the old man twice
    for the vulpix it only took 20 eggs to get a shiny after he rejected the first 42

    OK, thanks.

    It sounds like it was merely a coincidence, those shinys. Reminds me too much of those god-awful rumors way back in the RBY days...

    I think it's fake, otherwise someone would of found something wrong with the coding, wouldn't they?
