Re: The odds of getting a shiny with perfect IV's your ideal nature!!!
Well your belly zard still doesn't need perfect IVs. Only attack, speed and maybe HP.
Edit: You and hoshika seem to have a different calculation than me.
Perfect IVs = 32^6 to 1
= 1073741824 to 1
Perfect Nature = 25 to 1
Shiny = 8192 to 1
All together = 1073741824*25*8192 to 1
= 219902325555200 to 1
Double EDIT: I just realised I had the chance as 31 to 1. I changed it to 32 to 1 and got the same answer as pokeplayer66. Congrats.
This calculation only works in the wild. It is slightly off because both parents have a 4 to 1 chance of passing down each IV, making each IV not a 32 to 1 chance of being obtained. I'll try and make a formula for that later.
On the other hand, if you were using 2 pokemon with 3 different Perfect IVs, the everstone trick and no worries of shininess, your odds are:
Perfect IVs = 4^6 to 1
= 4096 to 1
Perfect Nature = 2 to 1
All together = 4096*2
= 8192 to 1
Which seems more probable.
