if you breed a shiney with a regular pokemon in pokemon crystal will the chances of getting a shiney be increased?

I havn't played The Johto Genartion games in quite A while but I presume it is 1/8000 the same as catching A shiny..If you had lots of pateince you can get most shinies by breeding.I think it was 1/8000.Someone will probaly give you the right % but im quite sure it's 1/8000.

Stop - things change.

Shinies are determined by DVs of the pokemon in the metals generation (GSC).

Because the father passes down the DVs, if the father is shiny, so will the child. IE, the golden magikarp will form from red gyarados.

So, if the father was shiny, its a 100% chance
If the father isn't shiny, its a 0% chance, i think.

Its only with the introduction of 32 different IVs in advanced, that the shinies are independant of DVs/IVs

I think there's a 0.012207% of chance that you will get a shiny pokemon from an egg.

Ok then lol... well can you explain to me that when after obtaining a shiny ditto and breeding it with my FEMALE Typhlosion, why i have so far hatched 18, yes 18!!!!, eggs and not ONE of them has turned out to be a shiny level 5 cyndaquil???

I know that the chance in finding a shiny in the wild is 1/8192 which is quite insane, but ive clocked up 171 Hours and 56 Minutes on my Crystal Cartridge and have not ONCE encountered a WILD SHINY!!! and surely to god i have seen more than 8000 wild pokemon by now. Is it just bad luck or what?! How many more eggs have I got to hatch to get a SHINY level 5 from it??? I heard from other sites that the odds were knocked down to around 1/64. To support this, this is what i found from a random FAQ i found a while back on breeding:

"To get a shiny Pokemon, the following conditions must be met:

The left digit of the random Attack/Defense value must be 2, 3, 6, 7, A, B, E, or F.
The gene-passing parent's Defense gene must be A.
The left digit of the random Speed/Special value must be A.
The gene-passing parent's Special must be 2 or A.

You can figure out the chance of getting a Shiny by determining the odds of the desired gender of the baby, then look below:

Remember, one of the parents must meet the requirements above, and the desired gender is the inverse of that parent.

If the baby has a 100% chance of getting the desired gender, or one of its
parents is a Ditto that meets the above requirements, the odds it will be shiny is 1:64 (8:512).
If the baby has a 87.5% chance of getting the desired gender, the odds it will be shiny is 7:512.
If the baby has a 75% chance of getting the desired gender, the odds it will be shiny is 3:256 (6:512).
If the baby has a 50% chance of getting the desired gender, the odds it will be shiny is 1:128 (4:512).
If the baby has a 25% chance of getting the desired gender, the odds it will be shiny is 1:256 (2:512).
If the baby has a 12.5% chance of getting the desired gender, the odds it will be shiny is 1:512.

NOTE: The odds of finding a shiny in the wild is 16:65536, or 1:4096"

its all VERY confusing with all these random numbers and genes, but it also mentioned that its IMPOSSIBLE to breed a shiny from 2 shiny pokemon, whereas ive seen clearly on other sites that it says if u breed 2 shinies u get a shiny obviously... But i tried it and it said the pokemon were 'Brimming with energy' and according to this FAQ they could not possibly produce an egg, similar to the legendaries...

Anyone wanna help me out here??

Firstly, I would like to start by saying that if you think about it, shinies are incredibly hard to find in the wild.

Bryjovi, looking at your guide only makes it seem even harder to get a shiny from an egg than it is in the wild. And since when does anyone have a letter for the left digit of their attack?

In answer to the question, I would like to say a similar thing to somebody else in this topic: just keep looking, it'll come up. Persistence works wonders, but since I don't know about eggs, I'd go looking in the wild for them.

Sorry if I'm not too much help.

AEPMT :) :D 8-) :wink: :mrgreen:

If you breed a shiny the chances are still 1/8??? of getting one so no it dosent increase your chances

Thank you all so much for beating the dead horse. It really makes me think "highly" of this community and it's members.

That being said, I do think I need to clarify that I was using SARCASM.
