How to GET/BREED EGGS (ALSO SHINY EGGS) hint for Pokemon Soul Silver



Anyway, the masuda method is a way to make shiny Pokemon much easier to get, and I use it in this video to hatch a shiny riolu (NO YOU MAY NOT HAVE IT ^-^). I have hatched many shiny Pokemon using this method, and I hope it has comes in use for many of you guys watching this video.

Usually, the chances of finding/hatching a shiny Pokemon are 1/8192, but using the Masuda Method, you raise the chances 4X to 1/2048.

You need to make sure you have-
-two Pokemon you want to breed to get a shiny (from different countries)
-a Pokemon that has the ability flame body/magma armor to make eggs hatch faster (slugma, magmar, and they're evolutions are good examples.)
-the daycare poketch app (get it from that guy sitting at the table.)

Also one note, if one of the Pokemon you are breeding is shiny, there is NOT a better chance of getting a shiny pokemon. Just thought I should mention that.

This method works in diamond/pearl/platinum/heartgold/soulsilver but easiest to do in diamond pearl or platinum because of the poketch.

Also a note, using an everstone to pass down natures WILL NOT work with two Pokemon from different countries.

Leave any questions (I have not yet answered) in the comments section and I will answer them to the best of my knowledge.


Q: Can you stop during the process to take a break, or will that mess it all up?
A: NO. Hatching shinies is not like chaining with the pokeradar for shinies. You can stop and restart any time you want to. YOU CAN SAVE AND TURN OFF THE GAME. IT WILL NOT AFFECT THE PROCESS AT ALL.

Q: Can I have your ________?
A: No, I don't trade my Pokemon.

Q: I got a [pokemon] from [country other than you.S.] will it work?
A: Yes

Q: I've hatched [number] eggs and still no shiny! What am I doing wrong?
A: First, check to make sure both your Pokemon are from different countries. Check OT names also. You can also check the pokedex. If you have a spanish, german, french, or japanese Pokemon, there will be an option to view that pokedex entry in another language. Also, make sure you have a Pokemon that has one of the above abilities to make eggs hatch faster so you're not overworking yourself. Heres the video it's not mine I just saw the descpription thought this would help ppl heres vid

Hey, if y'all want some good pokemon, I've got some good ones. My conditions are:
.You can't have Mewtwo
.You shouldn't even think about my Lucario or Kyurem
.In exchange for a trade I always require at least one battle first. It'll be worth your time.
. In exchange for my legends, I need some high leveled pokemon to match, so no lower than than lv50 or 60.

If you want a French Pickachu LISTEN UP. You get one by having a rematch with Lt. Surge. So ya find him any day 9:00 - 12:00 So ya find him, get his number, have a rematch with him. Then you will see him by the magnet train lobby in saffron. He will offer you a pickchui for his French Pickachu. Accept that offer. YOU GOT A FRENCH PICKACHU BABY!!!

Does anyone have a gold caterpie I've been breeding for a while and still none. I would give up what ever Pokemon I can find in soul silver

Added 5th Apr 2012, ID #129710

To the person that asked about shiny ditto + shiny eevee. It will make a shiny eevee eventually but the chance will stay at 1/8192 for every egg unless there both different nationalitys in which as said in the article above will increase the chance to 1/2048 per egg.

I think if you get 700 or more encounters you should get shiny pokemon.

Added 16th Oct 2011, ID #80865

I heard that if you got many eggs stored go to cinnabar island and hatch the many eggs you got it will maybe hatch into a shiny.

I have heard about it so much and I suck with technology so I am very jealous of you people. How do I trade to get a foreign pokemon? Can't get wifi! Watched videos and read stuff but since we bought our DS off of eBay, we weren't given the manual. Help me! By the way, I don't have any of those fancy cords of anything. Just me, my genius little bro, and the DS. But I still have a shiny bellosom! TEE HEE! Found it in the wild by accident. Freaked my bro and I out of our wits. Didn't know they existed!

well u dont need a shiny pokemon to get an shiny egg it can be any pokemon for ex if u have a jap ditto and a female treeko then it will work but if u have an jap ditto but a male treeko then no cuase u need a female pokemon to make the egg and only one pokemon has to have a diferent language so it dosent matter what country its from as long as it has a different language hope this helps
