6th shiny Milcery took 519 Eggs! She is also the 1st square shiny I hatched! No Aroma Veil though.
... yes? I'm not sure I quite understand the question. Masuda Method isn't dependent on having found the Pokémon in the wild - if you manage to obtain the two parents who are natively from different languages through trade, you can use these for breeding purposes. If you only have one game, however, catching one of the parents in the wild makes it easier for you to begin your hunt, since you'd only need to find the other parent.Is it possible to get shinies using masuda method without having encountered it in the wild?
Eggs hatched "count" as your encounters in the sense that you can tally up the number of eggs hatched because you're curious about the final number. But your chances of hatching a shiny through Masuda Method do not increase the more you hatch eggs - they stay at 1/683 without a shiny charm, or 1/512 with one, for each egg made.Also does hatching eggs count for your encounter? Meaning like how if you've battled or caught so many your chances increase?
