So does the new game have a higher shiny rate? I've heard and I'd like some confirmation.

The theory is that every time you give a tip to a waiter, Phil, or an info person, your chances of finding a shiny go up. For instance, let's just say you're chances of finding a shiny are 1 out of 10 (which would be awesome, but this is just an example). If you give a 10,000 dollar tip to someone, your chances would go from 1 out of 10, to 1 out of 9.

Like I said though, this is a theory. There has yet to be any solid proof behind it, like files from inside the game. I think it's true myself, though. After completing the game, and training some bred Pokemon at the restaurants, I had tipped quite a bit. Soon enough I had caught 3 shinies in the same day. A crappy, terrible IV filled geodude, scyther, and flabebe... They're gone now since I started a new playthrough, so I've no proof to show you. Although this is the internet, so I don't expect you to believe me anyhow.

That was a much longer comment than I'd anticipated... If it's worth anything to you, my Friend Code is 0018-1508-9468. If I run into any more Shinies, they're yours. I've never been too big on Shinies, so they'd be worth more to you and other people.

But what is its Nature and IVs?

I probably don't know much about pokemon anymore, but couldn't you just have one and save right before it hatches so you just take one step and restart if its not shiny? Or does that not work.

Doesn't work, if it's a shiny and IVs are decided when you get the egg

Might try doing this. Currently I'm hatching stuff in batches of five, and I find it a little bit slow and boring. (Masuda Method, although I think I'm onto my third or possibly fourth box!)

Why the **** would you put the eggs in boxes?

Is there a higher chance of getting a shiny pokemon with an egg than in the wild?

does anyone from not America want to trade dittos for reasons of masuda method of shiny breading?

Kind of an idiot for not saving before receiving the egg or at least saving once he had 6.
