Or rather, can it be done without losing one's mind? In theory, someone could breed enough of a certain pokemon to yield a shiny. But MAN would it take forever! Just trying to CATCH a shiny Pokemon is hassle enough. I mean, I've already tried for five hours at least. Would you guys dare try it? How long do you think it would take? If I set my mind to it I could probably breed and hatch several at least several hundred Pokemon a day, but boy oh boy would it ever get BORING!

In short, No way.

I used to do it in GSC with my Shiny Ditto and it worked well but the rules changed in RSE iirc.

I had a friend who did that once: both he and his girlfriend worked together, hatching like a hundred Charmanders a day for many days, in attempt to get said girlfriend a shiny Charmander. Eventually it worked, if I remember what he told me.

...Personally, I hate breeding period and only do it when it's unavoidable. Otherwise, I wouldn't touch breeding for shinies (outside of GSC) with a 90-foot pole.

Well, it's not like I'd do it all day while not doing anything else. I'd like, watch TV or something, too. I mean, they make an egg like once every few minutes.
