Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Do you have a better chance of getting a Shiny if one or both parents are shiny and foreign?

Because I have a shiny and foreign Ditto and I'm thinking of breeding it with my Shiny Metagross.

If the parents are shiny it doesn't make a difference however having both parents as foreign Pokemon does increase the chance.
It's called the Masuda Method, if my recollection is accurate.

A parent's shininess has no affect whatsoever on the offspring
However, if the parents originate from different countries (A game with a different language I suppose), the chance of obtaining a shiny Pokemon increases - known as the Masuda Method.
