===Masuda Method (Gen IV-V)===
This method is when you breed to pokemon, one from your game, and one from another language's game (Japanese, English, French, etc.). At first the chances of finding a shiny are 1/8192, if you use this method in gen IV the chances are cut, to 1/2048, whereas in gen V they are cut even more to 1/1365.3. So the chances of hatching a shiny are extremely easier. Although this seems to be high, and it is much higher than the normal method, but using the Masuda Method still mathematically averages one shiny egg per every 947 eggs. So if you got an egg before the 947th egg, count yourself lucky. This method was created and announced by Junichi Masuda, director of GameFreak to add fun stuff to the game after you beat it. Such as shiny hunting, using the GTS, and more!
