So you don't have to keep switching out the foreign pokemon?

1) Yes.

2) Actually, no. However, the chance of getting a 6IV Ditto in the wild is so low that it's virtually pointless to try.

Basically yes. Although it should be noted that Pokemon of the same species generate eggs faster. So on the off chance you have a 6V Pokemon of the same species that might be the better option.

It's technically possible to obtain the Ditto without hacking, but since odd of each stat being 31 is 1/32 (account for the chance that it can have an IV of 0), the odds of getting a perfect 6 IV Ditto would 32*32*32*32 from Safari (which has 2/6 IVs guaranteed) so a 1/1,048,576 chance. I forget the exact odds but I think getting a 4IV Ditto is somewhere around 1/150 and 5V is 1/8000. Every person who claimed to be trading a 5V Ditto who I saw prior to Pokemon Bank was scamming.

but does it increase chances of hatching a shiny?


because speed isn't a factor when im breeding since they pump out eggs really fast anyways if it's a foreign ditto and regular pokemon. My party is always filled with eggs.

Nope, not as far as I know. As long as you have Oval Charm you should be good regardless. The increased egg rate was pretty useful for me back when I was using instacheck to find shinies but now that it's patched yeah, egg generation rate isn't that important.
