Is this true/proven?

quote from a user named blazikien from this question:

"I have a theory that the rustling grass has a better chance of shiny. I've captured two shiny audino this way
(no cheats) I can't prove it though."

Nope, it is just chance. All encounters, regardless of what they are (unless it is 100% shiny or Masuda Method), have a 1/8192 chance to be shiny.

Are you sure? Because i've seen this somewhere else too.
If blaziken can't prove it, then we can't say that it is anything more than a theory.
What are the chances with the Masuda method?
1/1024 chance I thinl
It really depends on the Pokemon you breed. If you breed, say a Japanese Mienshao with an English Ditto on an English game, the chance is 4/8192 for a Shiny (not gonna do the simplifying, do it yourself). If you breed, for example, a Japanese Mienshao with a French Ditto (not sure if they make French games, but bear with me) on an English game, then the chance for a Shiny is 8/8192. Just to clear a few things up.
