    The Odd Egg

    With the release of Pokémon Crystal on VC, we are once again able to obtain the Odd Egg, and with it one of the best chances of obtaining a shiny Pokémon that isn't Gyarados.

    What did you get, VC or original? Did you bother SRing for a Shiny, or did you get lucky first time? Did you even originally know about the shiny chance?

    Back in the day, I think I got Elekid first time around. I originally didn't realise that it could be anything but, nor that it had a good chance of being a shiny. In future playthroughs, I'd always aim for Elekid (I love Electabuzz), but never got lucky and never really bother with SRing.

    On the VC, I got the Odd Egg tonight, and fully intended to soft-reset until I got me a shiny. Fortunately I didn't have to wait long; after the first hatch yielded a regular Igglybuff, the second to my joy and surprise contained a shiny Cleffa!

    So what are your Odd Egg stories?

    Congrats on the shiny Cleffa! I don't think I knew about the shiny chance. My original egg hatched into an Elekid as well. I'm not sure I even knew it could be a range of Pokemon. xD

    I never had Pokemon Crystal! ;A; I did get it eventually but I actually never finished playing through it. I've never heard about the odd egg actually! Go you getting a shiny on your second try though. :D

    Awesome luck on the shiny! I knew there's always a different outcome with the egg. I've just never been lucky enough to get a shiny. Still even back then when it's the first Pokemon egg you ever get it's so mysterious.

    Congratulations on your shiny Cleffa, @Elbub! :)
    Here is the list of the Pokemon who can hatch from the Odd Egg : Link from Bulbapedia

    Of course, when I get Pokemon Crystal on the virtual console, I will soft reset the Odd Egg to get a shiny Pokemon (exactly like I did when I played Pokemon Crystal back in 2016).

    Don't you get the Togepi egg from Violet City before the Odd Egg?

    Thanks, @Cleobel, and everyone else :)

    You should get the Togepi Egg first, yes.

    I was wondering what the VC shiny rates are. It's always been said that the Japanese Odd Egg was a 50% shiny rate, with international rates at ~14%. I suppose I could have just had good luck but the Celebi event, which was previously Japanese only, is now avaliable for everyone. I'm wondering if the rate for all versions is now 50%.

    What I found shows that the VC shiny rates for the Odd Egg are the same as they were before (~14%). That's one thing they didn't change.

    What can I say? I love Crystal to death, Japanese version included. :) I had to do some searching to see if they did change it or not, which is a shame because the Japanese version gets the best shiny rate. :(

    I guess I just did get lucky then. Yay.
