Is it actually possible to hatch a shiny out of that egg, I've hatched it over 10 times - no shinys , but every one had Dizzy Punch. Please tell me if I can get the Shiny Pichu I want

Fairly certain it's 50/50.. you've just had shitty luck.

If it really is 50-50, then the odds of getting over 10 eggs and not one being shiny (I used 11 in my calculations) is 1 in 2,048!

So, either this guy had HORRIBLE luck, or, it isn't a 50/50 chance of being shiny. We'd better ask Meowth.

I wanted either a shiny Magby, Elekid or Pichu. I got an Elekid, but it wasn't shiny. *sobs* Had Dizzy Punch, though. So everyone can now live in fear of my Parafusion Electabuzz, with -30 in every stat and a crap 70 power STABless Normal attack.

Oh, yeah! Beckachu, when your egg hatched and you reset, did you get the egg from the man again? This is important, as egg's stats are set the instant they come into play.
~Uiru, personally, would rather use Ice Punch

You're confusing me! If by reset do you mean that I saved before getting it and hatched it over and over again (thats what I did for the first 5 or so, and each were different) without saving until seeing what it was? (I never save while hatching eggs, only before I get em, I do that with my first pokemon too if I really want a Female one cos gender is only determined when you pick up the ball instead of when you start the game like one of my friends said.)

Guy?!? I think you'll find I'm a GIRL
But everyone seems to make that mistake. And I think I do have terrible luck at times, I think I'm cursed or something.

Oh, and how difficult is it to get a shiny Ditto (to breed with Eevee so I can get a shiny)?

Sorry about the last post, I get confused easily, but I've sat and read through properly.
When I reached the point where I could collect the Odd Egg, I saved just outside the center. I recieved the egg, Hoping to hatch a Shiny Pichu for my collection of cute pokemon. I hatched that egg, I got Smoochum non-shiny with Dizzy Punch. I turned the game off and collected it again. I repeatedly did this 11 times; getting these pokemon:
Pichu 4 all with Dizzy Punch
Cleffa 1 with Dizzy Punch
Igglybuff 4 all with Dizzy Punch
Magby 2 with Dizzy Punch
Smoochum 1 with Dizzy Punch

12 altogether including the 1st, no Elekid and not a shiny in sight. My sister also has crystal, but shes quite happy with her Dizzy Punch Igglybuff, as thats what she wanted and got on the first try.

*Whines* I want my shiny Pichu!! I've completed gold and only seen the shiny gyarados, maybe I'm a shiny-deterrent?

Oh, if I actually did encounter a shiny Ditto and caught it, to get a shiny baby would it take the position of mother or father in the chain? (i.e. what gender eevee would I need to breed with it)

THX!

Anything that can breed can breed with a ditto, no matter what gender. The ditto will just take the place of opposite gender, so use whatever Eevee you can get your hands on. I thought everybody knew that. And for a trick to get a Shiny Ditto, check out Meowth's wonderful site: Transferring IVs

Why is it that so many females use some veriant of Pikachu in their name?

*I* knew you were female.

(Actually, it was just a good guess based on your name. It's usually hard to tell online. Which may be why everyone thinks *I'M* a girl. ^_^ Ahh, if only.)

Anyway, yes, that's what I meant. You must be having extraordinarily bad luck; either that or it really isn't 50/50. (What the devil is the point of giving out crap Pokémon with a crap attack with crap genes? Is this to get the little kids excited or something? Geez...)

I wuvs Elekid, but I already have an absolutely class one... I can't remember it's stats exactly, but I know it has max DF and 14 HP and SD, great Speed and garbage Attack. But no Dizzy Punch. OH WELL. ^_^
~Uiru- Pichu is cuter anyhow.

Well, this would all certainly point to it not being 50%, but I got that number from Meowth's site... the "egg ticket" link on the update page.

For the curious, my number ratio is form Nintendo of Japan. After hatching over 30 Odd Eggs, more than 1/2 being Igglybuff, and 0 being Shiny (I confirmed with about 10 that their genes were in fact 0000) that Nintendo of America changed the ratios, as they don't agree with what used to be listed on Nintendo of Japan (and may still be listed--you'd have to check the Mobile Adapter section of the N.O.M.)

Doesn't surprise me one bit. They couldn't do something HELPFUL, like randomizing the DV's so these things *might* be worth using, could they?

...I'd be pissed off with Crystal if it weren't for Battle Tower. Which has me so pissed off, I'm likely to play constantly for the next few days until I beat the frigger. Someone wanna figure that out?
~Uiru- Battle Tower is approximately 62.4 times more evil than Pokémon Pinball. Which was created by Satan in the first place.

Did anyone get a shiny pokémon from an odd egg here?

My egg gave me a Dizzy Punch Smoochum too, but she isn't shiny.

This makes me wonder if these baby pokémon are really crap or just normal babies, since it is soo hard to get a shiny one...

You sure can get a shiny. It only took me nine tries to get a shiny. Luckily for me that first shiny was a shiny Magby, otherwise I could have very well spent a whole lot of time hatching eggs since I am obsessive about those things. Maybe my shiny Magby was a reward for hatching those 309 Hoppip eggs(The 306th was shiny, but I still had 3 leftover eggs after that). Shinies are kind of a waste of time, but I only breed for one anyway. Next time I'm going for a Pokemon with good stats, after I get a good breeding Ditto, of course.

My only shiny that is not a gyrados and not caught using gameshark is a Hoothoot. I consider the tree that I found it in to be lucky. This pokemon was caught and in training on cyrstal. It is now evolved.
