I'm trying the Masuda Method for shiny Charmander; does the Pokemon have to be exactly the same Pokemon for the increased chance?.
I'm currently breeding a Korean Charmander with an English Charizard - would I have to evolve it to be a Charizard? Or does it just have to be in the evolution line for a better chance?
Also, I see a lot of people getting shinies (and I have 4 shinies myself), so I was thinking, is the chance of finding one better? (If it is its probably 1/4000 instead of 1/8000.)
