basicly GenV/VI games = X&Y , ORAS are the best for shiny breeding / encountering pokemon but it hass been inplanted into the games since diamond & pearl

The Masuda method involves breeding two Pokemon created in games of different countries. An Egg resulting from such a pairing will have a higher likelihood of being Shiny.
If both Pokemon are foreign to the cartridge but are both from the same country, then the Masuda method will not take effect. Foreign language Pokemon obtained via in-game trades, such as the Meister's Foppa and Lt. Surge's Volty, are treated as being from the same country as the game they were generated in, so they cannot be bred with another Pokemon from the same country for the Masuda method. In Generation IV, if the Masuda method is in effect, so both parents come from different countries, the Everstone will fail to increase the chance of passing on a Nature.
if the game recognizes the two Pokemon in the daycare as having different home locations, then when an Egg is generated, the game will attempt to generate a personality value that results in a Shiny Pokemon up to four extra times in Generation IV and five extra times in Generation V.[2] If the player has the Shiny Charm, the game will make two further attempts to generate a Shiny Pokemon, bringing the total chance up to 1/1024, or eight times more likely than normal.
In Generation VI, the Shiny Charm combined with the Masuda method increases the chance of hatching a Shiny Pokemon to 1/512.

The Shiny Charm increases the chance of encountering a Shiny Pokemon, both in the wild and through breeding. This is known to stack with other modifiers which increase the Shiny encounter rate, such as the Masuda method.
In Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, the player can receive the Shiny Charm from Professor Juniper after obtaining all the Pokemon in the National Pokedex and then speaking with Cedric Juniper.
In Pokemon X and Y, the player can receive the Shiny Charm from Professor Sycamore after obtaining all the Pokemon in the National Pokedex, with the exception of event Pokemon.
In Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, the player can recieve the Shiny Charm from Professor Birch after obtaining all Pokemon in the National Pokedex, with the exception of event Pokemon.

No, pokemon being a shiny does not influence chances of it's offspring being a shiny in any way.

The only way to raise chance of hatching a shiny pokemon is to breed a pokemon traded from a different region. Shiny chance increases four times, but it's still very low.

Contrary to what Stepswordsman said, yes, breeding shiny pokemon increases the chances of getting shiny pokemon from an egg. If one of the parent pokemon is shiny, the chances of a shiny baby go up somewhat. If both parent pokemon are shiny, there is a good chance the egg will contain a shiny pokemon, but there is a chance the pokemon may not be shiny. Also, you can try to do as StepSwordsman said: if you take two pokemon that are from different regions (say, your vulpix and a japanese vulpix), the chances of a shiny egg increase from 1/8192 to 1/2048 (which is four times the chance of finding a shiny pokemon in the wild), but I'm not quite sure the odds if one/both of the foreign pokemon are shiny. On a lesser note, if you plan to try to get a shiny pokemon by this method (the Masuda Method) in Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heartgold, or Soulsilver so you can get a shiny pokemon in Black/White, do the method in Black/White instead: the odds would be 1/1366.

JMISBEST answered:

Yes

If 1 Pokemon is shiny, the chances go up a bit, if both are shiny, they go up a lot.

Also. Getting The Shiny Charm in generation's 5 and 6 also increases your chances and using a foreign also increases your chances.

Xiphiidae answered:

Stepswordsman and CuddyX are exactly right. C-Star55 and JMISBEST are mistaken.
Whether either, both or none of the parents are shiny has no effect on the likelihood of a hatched Pokemon being shiny. This probability is only affected by the Shiny Charm and Masuda method.

Yes, breeding a shiny Pokemon increases the chances of the offspring being shiny. If you breed a shiny Pokemon with a Pokemon from somewhere other than your country, the chance of the offspring being a shiny goes up even more. If you breed a shiny Pokemon with a Pokemon from somewhere other than your country with the Shiny Charm, the chances are yet again upped. Hope this helps.
