After giving you a treat earlier this week with a full completed Pokemon X and Y Pokedex, we now switch our attention back to shiny Pokemon. Another exciting catch has been made, this time with one lucky user managing to use the Masuda Method on Pokemon X and Y to score himself a shiny Mega Mawile.
If you have been trying to use the Masuda Method yourself to catch shiny Pokemon, you’ll know that the Masuda Method odds are extremely low. Having said that, many gamers are now saying that the chances of finding a shiny with the Masuda method have increased in Pokemon X and Y compared to previous games in the series.
Before we were seeing ridiculous rates of 1/1365 for a shiny Pokemon, but now those odds could have been slashed significantly to around 1/683.
Below we see one user who has applied the Masuda Method to pick up a shiny Mawile, who is also a Pokemon that can mega evolve into Mega Mawile to look even more amazing. The user is obviously delighted with the catch, but you can see why with such low odds when using the Masuda Method.
