Default Breeding Shinies

How long would it take to breed a shiny vs radar?

There's no way to increase the chances of breeding a shiny Pokemon, so your chance of getting a shiny would still be 1 in 8192. PokeRadar is therefore a much better option. Even just running into wild Pokemon is probably an easier way of finding shinies than hatching eggs =/

When you chain for shinies the max odds you can get is something like 1/200(when you chain to 40) so yeah its a lot more common than when you breed. In other words don't aim to breed for a shiny it'll just make you sad cause it's almost impossible to get one. I've tried for shiny Adamant Karp for months still no luck.

Breeding shinies is the only way to get shiny starters/phiones though. And it isn't THAT hard if you aren't aiming for specific natures. While I was getting myself a beldum with Lax nature, I got a tasty treat, shiny beldum :-)

Breeding shinies isn't recommended, but you might get lucky.

Radar, definately.

I have over 100 shinies from the pokeradar, and close to none with any other method. As long as you can find it in the short grass, it is way easier to chain as opposed to breed/reset/whatever.

How does not targetting a specific nature help? It's still going to be almost 8,200 eggs on average. Everstone on the female with the nature you want gives you a 50% chance that the egg will have that nature. So.. if you're doing it with the everstone/female method then the average is 16,000+ eggs.

Breeding shinies will more than likely get you a much more usuable pokemon though. I bred a cubone and got a shiny with egg moves, rock head, good IVs, and an adamant nature. If I had spent hours pokeradaring one it's nature and IVs probably would have blown and it sure wouldn't have had egg moves. Besides if you have an AR you can get codes that greatly reduces the hatching time and egg availability without altering the eggs themselves which greatly reducing the time it takes to hatch pokemon.

There's no doubt that poke radar kick's breeding's butt, I would imagine breeding has the same odds as finding a shiny randomly. (Which is not very high) :P.
