Eggs and Shiny chance

Not open for further replies.

Ok, Basically, if you have an egg, and you hatch it, and it doesnt turn out to be a shiny, does the chance still be random if you reset the game and hatch again? or will it always become the normal pokemon?

No, IIRC whether an egg is shiny or not is determined when the Old Man gives it to you.
Yeah, everything about the pokemon (IVs, nature, ect) is determined when you receive the egg. So if you wanted to get a shiny, save the game BEFORE you talk to the daycare man, hatch the egg, and if it isn't shiny, soft reset and get the egg again.
And shiny questiosn go in the shiny sticky please
