Please Note: This is a rough copy with experimental data that has yet to be proven. It is simplified beyond necessity to accomodate everyone from newbies to experts. If you have proof this does or does not work or have breeding formulae that may help in my quest to breed for shiny pokemon, E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or NSMoltres@aol.com
(Everything you've always wanted to know about HEX, but were afraid to ask, part deux)
In this section, I'm going to skip all of the stuff you really don't care about and tell you what you should DO to acheive the Shiny. There are two options...
Get a Ditto: Defense DV = 10, Special DV = 10
This will simplify the process immensely. If you can do this, stop reading and start breeding. A Ditto with these DVs is unlimited in breeding capability, save the unbreedables. It is the only shortcut to breeding a Genderless shiny, so if you want that Shiny Porygon, the buck stops here.
Breed your Shiny Gyarados:
That's right, the Gyarados that everyone clogs with HMs and then boxes is back to stud. This Gyarados has the key DV's which can be passed on to create generations of Shinys. The process is far more arduous than the Ditto method, but if you don't have the (master) balls, the Gyarados method is the way to go.
THINGS YOU WILL NEED TO BREED:
1. Shiny Gyarados (either Male or Female, but Male is preferable)
2. At least 45 Rare Candies (if you don't like to clone items, you'd better get yourself a Pocket Pickachu 2 post haste!)
3. Recipient Pokemon (this is the pokemon you want to glitter!)
4. Chain Pokemon (this/these are the pokemon you need to get your recipient to glitter!)
5. Mucho Denero (after breeding a while, it gets expensive. if you go broke, they hold your studs hostage!)
The first is Necrosario's Pokemon Homepage. The latter is the famous Greycloak Statfinder. VERY IMPORTANT!!!
Step One: It's Raining Men!
Check: Is your Shiny Gyarados Male?
If: Yes, go to step two.
If: No, keep reading.
So, you Shiny Gyarados is a Female. (I don't even know if this is possible, but I'll type it up anyway.) Well, to keep it short, you'll have to do a little more work then most. What you have to do is breed your Shiny Sheela so as to obtain an egg. (it doesn't matter who the father is) Once you've hatched a Male, save, and Rare Candy to Level 50. Go to GC's statfinder and check it Defense and Special DV's. The Defense WILL be 10, if the special is anything other than 10, scrap it and try again. Keep repeating this untill you obtain a Male Magikarp with 10 for both Defense and Special DV wise.
Step Two: Love Connection
And now, using Necrosario's page, compare the Breedability of your Recipiant. (Breedability is marked 1-F in really big print.)
Gyarados has a breedability of CE, so your pokemon must have either C or E to breed directly. Otherwise, you'll need to find a Chain. I want a Shiny Eevee, so I'll be using Arbok as the Chain link. Any pokemon with the breedability of A will be unable to breed with Gyarados at all. If you really want an "A" Shiny, go get your Ditto. There may be more that will require Ditto, but I'm not going to bother listing them all.
Step Three: The (Redneck) Family Tree
Once you've found your chain, if any, and you've got your Guy-rados, it's time for some (in)breeding!
Mate your Gyarados with your Chain untill you hatch a FEMALE. Then save and candy it to 50 and check the DV's. If the DV's are 10/10 Def/Spec, it's a keeper.
Now, you have to (in)breed that child with the nearest compatible Male. (Usually this means the Father) Hatch eggs untill you get a MALE. Check the DV's again. If it's 10/10 Def/Spec, it's a keeper.
Take this Male and breed with the next chain and repeat from the "*****" replacing the names of the pokemon as necessary.
Step Four: The Moment of Truth!
Once you have your final Male Chain, get your Recipient, make sure it's female. If it isn't and/or can't be, get a Ditto (hmm... shoulda toldya that earlier. ^_^;;; ).
Breed your Recipient untill you hatch a FEMALE! Candy it to 50 and check the DV's. If you notice the Def and Spec DV's match the fathers, it's a keeper. Inbreed the critter with the father ad nausium. Eventually, you will get a Shiny.
And that's all there is to it. It takes INFINITE Patience, but if you really want it, it pays off.
The odds are approx 1/64 eggs resulting in a Shiny. GET CRACKING!
This is, as of yet, untested information. I am not even sure if this will work, but you can beleive I will keep trying. I will have my Shiny Flareon eventually!!!
