PKHEX Shiny Question

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to ensure that a pokemon placed in an egg will hatch shiny? I've marked a pokemon as shiny and placed it in an egg, then link traded with a friend and it didn't hatch shiny....am I missing a step in making sure it hatches shiny? Is this something not possible? Thanks 💗

Erm, cause you traded it, lol.

That's how people managed to get a shiny Manaphy from the egg in Gen 4, despite the egg being shiny locked.
They traded it, so that hopefully a different trainer will hatch it shiny.

Shininess is dependent it's PID and the TID/SID that hatches it./

As @Delta Blast Burn said, you need to make sure the PID will be shiny for the recipient's TID/SID.
So on PKHeX, mark it shiny after putting your friend's TID/SID on the egg :)

You need to fill in the TID/SID when creating the pokemon in order for it to be shiny even with an egg

What if I was going to randomly give an egg to someone and didn't have their TID/SID?

Then you're outta luck.

Okay. That bites.  @Delta Blast Burn How would someone find their sid? I'm pretty sure their tid can be found in game but not so sure about sid. Would I just trade them and go in pkhex and look at a pokemon they've caught/hatched?

Just get them to trade you a Pokemon that was caught/hatched on that save and then look at that Pokemon's Trainer Tab in PKHeX to get their TID and SID.

Okay...so....I did all of that....I got someone's tid and sid....entered that info into pkhex....shuttled it back to my console....sent the egg over....and a pokemon still didn't hatch as shiny. I don't normally mess around with eggs...but am I missing doing something?

Probably. Show us screenshots of the egg with the person's TID/SID, and show a screenshot of the same egg containing it's PID.

(Mark shiny AFTER setting the TID/SID)
