Ok first off the persentage of breeding a shiny pokemon is like 1 out of 1,000,000,000,000! Im not sure if thats even a number! Second most likely you can't get shiny starters. I only know one guy who has a shiny starter but i think he was using Action Replay. Here are some tips on catching shiny pokemon:
A Quagsire Quagitty Perduction
1. Use the Poke Rader to find shiny pokemon
2. When the grass shakes that has a better but still poor chance of it being shiny.
WAYS TO KNOW IF ITS A SHINY
When the grass shakes let the grass be at least 4 bushes away from you.
Slow shake = Not likely to be Shiny
Shake = More likely but still not Likely to be shiny
Fast Shake = Likely to be shiny
Shiny Shake = Oh yay. You Struck gold
The only time i have EVER seen a shiny pokemon legitamently was in Pokemon Soul Silver. I was in a cave when i saw a Rattata. It was Green instead of Purple. I tried to lower it's health down but i one hit KOed it with my Crokanaw. I missed out on a once in a lifetime Upertunity. I wasn't even trying to see a shiny!!!! Ok so take it from me don't try to breed pokemon to get a shiny. Catch them using the tips i gave you. Not just you Villespartan. Everyone who reads this!!!!!!
If I recall the encounter rate for a shiny Pokemon in the wild, or through breeding, is 1/8192. It's extremely low. However, only 90 of them isn't that much. And because it is all RNG based, you could breed just 5, or you could breed some thousands of them and never see it.
Are you using the Masuda method? If not, it'll at least greatly increase your chances. I can't say what it is for this generation, but believe last generation of games it brought the change to 1/1365 or so. (Someone please correct me if I'm wrong!) Basically you take two Pokemon created in different language games and breed them together. (For example a Japanese Smeargle bred with a Fennekin from your game.)
Your chances will go up with this method. It's the only way I've found a shiny in all my Pokemon playing time. I bred my female Fennekin, was actually working on IVs, with a Japanese male Smeargle. Egg number 14 ended up being a shiny. Quite low on the egg count still, but remember it's RNG based.
Yes, if you use a japanese (or other foreign pokemon) with one of your pokemon your chances of breeding a shiny are raised hence called the "Masuda Method"
A popular rumor is that the chances of the Masuda Method this gen have been increased to 1/683
