PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I am using Pokemon gold on the gba and am breeding with a shiny ditto.

Even if it's possible, this is a less efficient technique than collecting five Eggs and hatching them the normal way.
I think the eggs are pre-determined before they hatch.

No. Fact, it is actually a strategy to breed magikarp until you get a shiny then to take note of how many eggs it took to hatch the shiny. You would then soft reset to right before you put in the magikarp and instead put in your desired Pokémon. After the same amount of eggs hatched, a shiny Pokémon would pop up.

I'm pretty sure this doesn't work in Gold. How do you know it does work in Gold?
