ok, so I am trying to get a shiny Absol to mega evolve it. I currently have a girl absol in the daycare with a seviper, both from the US. what are the odds of getting a shiny with these pkmn?
If it is in gen VI 1 in 4096. If not,1 in 8192, Which is the standard chance. Why? You are not using any boosting methods currently such as the Masuda Method, or A Shiny Charm.
With no items or processes that increase, the shiny rate will always remain 1 in 4096. Below Gen VI, it would be 1 in 8092.
Hope this helps!
