If you care about natures and IVs, Masuda. If you don't, Friend Safari.

In terms of getting shiny Pokemon, starting with the easiest.

1. Chain Fishing
2. Masuda Method
3. Friend safari / Random encounter
4. Pokeradar


how high are you?

the radar can get a shiny in a half hour

and masuda requires like 5-10mins per egg where as the chance of finding a shiny in the safari is about 1 in 400

chain fishing is apparently the easiest (which is also why its the most frustrating when you dont get anything at a 300 chain)
friend safari gets you much more shinies on average than anything following
followed by sweet scent hordes (5 pokemon per battle is just a lot faster than one by one, but you have less variety compared to safari)
chaining if you know how it works and if you find a grass patch big enough (srsly they are too small in this game)
then i'd say comes masuda method
followed by shiny charm in b/w (which i hope is a hidden event item in this game one day)
and then normal encounters
