Also, the Masuda Method is acknowledged by Nintendo. After all it is their programming that makes it that way. It isn't exactly easy either. The chances of you breeding a shiny are I believe a 1/8000 something chance. Using international parents however only increases that chance to a 1/6000 chance if I'm remembering it correctly. It doesn't exactly just give you a shiny. LOL
Ik that, it still greatly increases your chances, my friend got two shinies in a week from Masuda method, which was largely good luck on his part, but still. Also, I don't know if it's true, but I've heard rumours and stuff that the shiny rate has gone up heaps in B/W, and going by the number of shinies my friends and I found in the wild in a week and a bit, I'd believe it. We got like 7 shinies between the 6 of us, so I think something's up there. :\
