Stick em' up
5 eggs for a shiny Oshawott. My first and only MM hunt. I'm lucky...


Check my sig... I've never been terribly lucky when it comes to MM'ing, but at least I haven't had to do much more than 1000 so far. I just Elgyem doesn't take too much longer.

I just hatched my shiny beldum that I've been looking for a while : it took me 1313 eggs...

None yet, at about 750 trying to get a Shiny Charmander.
Despite having caught over 10 RE shinies I really don't care for shinies. I have successfully completed one MM attempt.

It was a snivy. This snivy hatched in the 228-232 range bracket. I did not have a precise count on the number of eggs I hatched, but I counted the number of clutches. Clutch sizes were usually four eggs, but I had a few fives, thus why I have some uncertainty in my measurement.

I probably won't attempt another MM in the conceivable future...

I just got a bagon from a shiny hunt. I think it was between 300-500 eggs (didnt keep track, did it all last night though and some of this morning), not sure what i want to do next though...

I've only hatched 2 Shiny Pokemon using the Masuda Method.

Tepig - 1016 eggs
Woobat - 51 eggs

I don't understand how people have the patience to hatch 2000+ eggs. I was on the verge of giving up on Tepig.


dragon trainer
i tried for a charmander and gave up on 100 becuase im not patient but im gonna start again
