Someone looked and found it in the game's code, I believe.
Also, I've got a question. If I trade a Japanese Ditto to my sister, and ask for it back a few weeks down the road, will the Masuda Method still take effect? Or does it have to be directly traded from a foreign country?
Sweet. I have 2 Japanese Diamond/Pearl carts, 3 American Diamond/Pearl/Platinum Carts. I could, in theory, trade over a charizard, breed a child, then use that child to get a shiny?
The two parents must be from different language games. SO as long as the parent is, say, Japanses while the other parent is English, it'll work. But not if both parents have been obtained on an English game.
Err...Why is this even here?pokemon is getting boring and boring day by day. same story theme. but i love the character pikachu
Many people know about this method, and there are english sites telling you about it too. The reason it is not discussed here is because Serebii do not allow discussion of cheating or hacking. Now, I don't consider this cheating or hacking but I can understand why many people do. If a thread was created for it, it would be closed almost immediately (probably), and the creator may even get an infraction.guys i know a method to get a shiny egg 100%
this works on the japanese versions for sure but im not sure on the english versions
its called the plantinum loop(but idk if im allowed to discuss this cuz im surprised ive never read about this method anywhere on this forum)
heres the site if anyone else can read japanese...
and this method works cuz ive hatched shiny pokemon at a 100% rate so far (charmander and beldum ftw)
basically how this works is shinies are determined by this thing called seeds, and if you know your exact seed at one point of the game, you can calculate when you'll get a shiny egg using your id.
haha has anyone else heard of this method?
