I wanna complete the Nat.Dex to get the shiny charm but I wanna get it specifically for Breeding.
And I read that it only affects wild encounters :/
Anyone know if thats how it is ?

Increases the chances of encountering Shiny Pokémon. The chance of encountering Shiny Pokémon in the wild is changed to 1/2730. The chance of an egg producing a Shiny Pokémon via the Masuda method is changed to 1/1024.

Yeah, it'll stack with the Masuda Method.


Sorry i forgot to mention in Gen 6.
Does it affect masuda method in x and y ?
Serebii currently says it's unknown if it affects breeding in Pokémon X and Y.
Okay thanks now i just gotta wait >.<
Well there's no way to know since you can't transfer items over Pokebank, but I would think it would safe to say that it probably effects breeding in some way, albeit the chances.
Ohh no its possible to get its already confirmed
Yeah he's right JarJar you can get the Shiny Charm in X and Y after you complete the National Pokédex.
Oh really? Well then.
