In Gen 5 the chance of getting a shiny using the Masuda method is still a massive 1/366. (But it is a lot better compared to Gen 4 masuda method which was 1639/1.) Compared to the usual rate of 1/8192, it is amazing. You have only gotten 400 + squiltes, if you get over 1366, then you have a problem.

*1/1366
*1/8192
also just because you hit 1366 doesnt mean you will get a shiny
but it does mean you have a bad luck
