I got a shiny ditto using Meowth346's trick... now does that mean that every pokemon I breed with this shiny ditto will have a 1/64 chance of producing a shiny child? I read something on spunman's site here that makes me unsure as to whether the odds are 1/64 or 1/512. can someone clear this up for me?

I did a calculation using the 1/64 chance of a shiny ditto breeding a shiny child (with the assumption that the non-ditto parent needs no specific stats). it seems that after 100 children being created, there would only be aabout an 80% chance of 1 child being shiny..

???

is this right? or am I doing it all wrong?

Half of Attack values qualify as Shiny = 1/2
Defense is always passed straight = 1
Special can "flip" half of the time = 1/2
Special must be A = 1/16

Multiply all four and you get 1/64.

My Shiny Delibird took 5 eggs; Shiny Shuckle took 140...And I've read of a couple people who got theirs on the first or second try and other that took around 250 eggs for a single Shiny.

spunman is taking into account (if I recall) Parent Genders, and when you are breeding with a Shiny other than Ditto, this is important. But when breeding with a Ditto, stats are always passed down from the blob, so your odds are going to be 1 in 64.
