the normal chance of finding a shiny pokemon in the wild and by breeding are the same and they are 1:8192 but ! there are methods of getting a shiny pokemon faster:

1)the masude method : this method was introduced in gen 4 by the developer of the game Junichi Masuda- putting a different nationality pokemon in the day care with your pokemon (example : a jap female pikachu with a male US pikachu in a US game ) will increase the chance of hatching a shiny pokemon to 1:1365.3 instead of 1:8192

2)The second method of obtaining shiny Pokémon is through the method called "chaining". This method has you carry on a chain on the PokéRadar. As you battle the Pokémon and your chain increases, the chances of seeing a Shiny Pokémon also increases up until you're on the 40th chain where it levels out. Continue the chain and you may see the grass glow instead of shaking. If this occurs, there is a shiny Pokémon there. When you defeat or capture a Pokémon you have discovered with the PokéRadar, the chain begins and you need to follow the chain to other grass tiles to continue the chain. These chains are broken when a different Pokémon appears or you encounter a Wild Pokémon outside of the set grass tiles so it is recommended that you use Repel or other Wild Pokémon prevention techniques. Shiny Pokémon are easily findable with the PokéRadar. If you have found a Shiny Pokémon with the PokéRadar, the grass will shine as opposed to shaking. With chaining, you have the ability to increase the likelihood of finding a Shiny Pokémon. This is done by having a prolonged chain on the PokéRadar. The chances increase up until the 40th Pokémon in the chain. This is calculated with the following formula;
Chance = (14747 - 40*ChainNumber)/2621440(41-ChainNumber)
After each use of the PokéRadar, it requires recharging. This is done by walking 50 steps

3)In Pokémon Black 2 & White 2, a new item is introduced called the Shining Charm. This item, obtained when you have completed the National Pokédex, increases the chances of Shiny Pokémon appearing. As it's a Key Item, when you have the item in your bag, then the chances of encountering Shiny Pokémon in the wild is increased to 300% of normal, making it a 1:2370.6 chance. If, however, you're using the Masuda Method to breed, it reduces it from 1:1365.3 down to 1:1024
